I only got to hunt boar once in Vermont. Damn thing charged me. Most exciting hunt I ever had. Got it with 4 3/4", .454 Casull. I'd go again in a heart beat. All three of my brothers have hunted deer with me. Years ago we got our first deer/buck, in the woods, in back of dads house. We hung it from the second floor of dads garage, in the back yard. Dad told everyone at the coffee shop and there was a parade of cars going slowly by the house. Now my nephew recently got his LTC. He's pumped and so am I, for him.I was a shooter and hunter for years before I went to Vietnam. When I came home, I stayed away from guns for a few years before getting back into it. I don't hunt any more. I would however like to try hunting wild boar or pigs. At least they have a chance to defend themselves, and it might get my adrenaline level where I like it. Same thing for other dangerous game, I'd try it for the rush, but I wouldn't shoot anything I wasn't going to eat.
Almost exactly the same thing happened to me!my side rabid TDS gun hating on all levels liberals. we are not on speaking terms: i have been deleted from all family events and relationships. could care less for i don't have to listen to their shit and save plenty on christmas, birthdays etc. my wife's side ex military, conservative, party animals: most don't own guns but really do not have an issue with them.
I once revived the second thread ever started on this site: High Power Shooting GearYes, the necromancy is strong with this one @namedpipes
My wife doesn’t mind it. Just like my guitars she prefers me not to have 10 of ‘em. Of course there’s more than that for both guitars and guns.
My mil who has dementia just lets out an “Oooooooohhhh!” when she sees me decked in real tree.
Took my then 8 and 10 y/o’s to the range last year to let them shoot a 10/22 and P22. They liked it and I need to get them out more. The now 9 y/o is interested in going hunting with me. This is very good. The youngest of the three at 1 y/o will grow up knowing Daddy is packing heat...always. She’ll benefit from the experience of the older two.
News to me.This site was around before 2005, 2004 was the original board..I think.
Dig harder !
I fail at memory..Could have sworn there was an earlier website version and when upgraded everybody lost post count etc..News to me.
Derek sent me an Email the day he started NES and after I talked with him on the phone I joined the following day. According to the link to my name, I was the 13th member of NES. I see you were #7. Derek also told me that he started NES as a family-friendly forum having been disgusted with lots of back-biting on ARfcom (where both of us were and still are members).
So if he started something earlier than that, I was never aware of it. I'm not saying that it didn't happen.
no, the ladies are 0 for 3I grew up in a gun family. Ex-wife was an anti
Now I'm single again. A co-worker (Newton) has been trying to set me up with her friends for two years. I said OK only on the condition that she tell them up front that I am a gun owner and that I won't even meet them if they object to that.
So far, I'm 0 for 3.
