I have been looking for a stainless boat paddle stock M77 for years. I don't know why, but I find them to be the ultimate combination of classic bolt gun and rugged bush gun.
I have one of Rugers Gunsite Scouts in 308. It is basically a modified M77 and a great little rifle.

I’m thinking of replacing my composite stock (non boat paddle style) with a Boyd’s grey laminate (I think they call it salt and pepper) wood stock to go with the stainless steel. I was never a fan of the boat paddle myself, to each their own. :)

I will be getting the guns I own back into my possession soon. A Ruger 10/22 and a Browning 12 gauge. I have also been looking at Heritage revolvers since I discovered we are a constitutional carry state.

The Ruger Wrangler is a nicer gun at the same price of the Heritage. Just my opinion.
Unless you're set on having a manual safety on a revolver that already has a transfer bar safety, the Wrangler is more bang for the buck.

Inherited. Weird how I got nothing when dad died, but got all of my maternal grandfather's goodies. Even his wedding ring from 1943.

I carry a mouse gun, a little Beretta Tomcat .32acp. A small gun but it's in my pocket almost all the time.

Fit and finish wise I think the Wrangler looks better. The Heritage's darn safety lever is extremely ugly.

I bought myself a new gun belt from Hanks.
The last gun belt I had was a Safariland Sam Browne which I gave away after the Sheriff's SAR Posse was disbanded.
Hanks has a lot of good reviews and the prices seen right.

Not a gun, but sort of related to shooting.

Yesterday I bought another longbow for myself. A fellow at the archery range was selling it and insisted that I try it for myself. Well, I wasn’t really in the market for another bow right now, but when the first, second and third shot went straight into the bullseye and did so with no noticeable hand shock or noise I changed my mind about needing another bow.

Handmade bow, JK Traditions “Kanati” hybrid longbow. 62” Length 51# @30”. Bamboo and black fiberglass laminate limbs, some sort of wood in the handle. Very smooth and quiet shooter.

It will go rabbit and quail hunting with me next week and deer hunting in September.

That is one gorgeous bow, Thunk.
Quail hunting with a bow. Wow!

You shame me.
I cheat. I hunt bobwhites with a scattergun. :D

I’ve had two handmade Wing Archery, Bob Lee bows over the years, a Red Wing Hunter and a Falcon. I sold the Red Wing to a friend a few years ago when I became physically unable to draw it - and my friend really wanted it.

I still have the Falcon (and some quivered cedar shaft arrows for it) hanging on the wall in my office.
Pretty as a painting.

There are few things In the world as pretty as a well made bow.

And your new acquisition is a beauty.
Enjoy it!

Thanks guys. Durango has a pretty good idea what flavor of bow that I have if he had a Bob Lee. If memory serves, it was Bob Lee who popularized the hybrid long bow. My other long bows have less deflex than this one has.

As for quail with a longbow and ground sluicing. I would never ground sluice a quail with a shotgun. In fact, I have little interest in hunting quail with a shotgun without dogs that flush them. But anyway, I will try and take them in the air with flu flu arrows or on the ground. No dogs this time of year, too hot for them and too many snakes!

Meanwhile my boy will carry a 22 for the rabbits only. We shall see.

For some nostalgic fun, here’s a link to the Wing Archery 1965 catalogue. The Red Wing Hunter and the Falcon are both in here. My bows were roughly this vintage.
