Pipeson came home from Fleet Farm this week with a brand new bolt-action .22 rifle.

He can't find any ammo for it.

I just scheduled my CCW renewal appointment today. April 20th was their first opening. Ugh!

I live in a state where they don't require a CCW permit. I accidentally let it expire in November. I have until May to renew it for a fee before I have to take the course again.

I can open carry in Ohio without a permit, but I don't like open carry.

I want a matched pair of cap and ball revolvers. These guns will be shooters. I think I have it down to two, but can't decide between the 1851 Navy in .36 or 1860 Army in .44. 1851's in .44 never existed and aren't even in the consideration.
The 1851 Navy's would be cheaper to shoot and cheaper to buy.
The 1860 Army's would have more power and are more attractive with their styling. I also think the 1860 loading lever might be a little stronger over time. I can't prove it though. The extra cost to buy is close to negligible.
The 1861 navy would be perfect. They are .36 with the 1860 styling, but they cost a bit more to buy.
The added cost of an 1861 navy brings into consideration the New Model Army Remington's and even the .36 caliber Spiller and Burr's. The Spiller and Burr does have a handier, shorter barrel, but the brass frame (even though it has a top strap) puts it at the bottom of the list.

I got the postcard about this, since mine expires in June. Did it a few months ago with my wife's permit and it was a real pain. You can't book your appointment until within 60 days of expiration, but then when you try to do that, the closest appointment is more than than 60 days out. The website at the time said you could do a walk-in in that case, but when you got there they turned you away and said to book the later appointment, then call to move it up. What a PITA! Hope they have some appointments when I'm in my 60 day window. Wake County, NC ... :(

If you really wanted a PITA and added expense you could take them to court for infringement of your second amendment right to bear arms.

Haha. Those two models aren't terrible. A pair of Dragoons or Walkers would require some auxiliary support. I briefly considered a pair of Dragoons. Sensibility soon ensued though.

Email out today about clay target shooting, beginning in April ...

None of my buddies can find shells!

I have enough for a month or two, depending on how much I shoot, but I sure hope the situation improves soon or it’s going to be a long summer.

Yeah, thanks ...
But no cigar.

All that’s available are expensive self-defense and hunting rounds.
I can’t afford to shoot clays with that!

Besides. You ever try to hit a clay target with a #00 Buck or a slug?
