  1. Vikings VS. Saints

    I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF.
  2. Vikings VS. Saints

    I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against. It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.
  3. Tagged out in nd

    That's awesome! Great picture as well. There's nothing better than a blood trail in the snow!
  4. AU JUS ...belly up men.....

    Its that time of year again to bump this back up. I made this again today and like always, it was excellent. I cooked a prime rib and a pork loin. Both meats were great dipped in it. If you are looking for a recipe, look no further. This is the stuff you want.
  5. Old Double barrel

    I will definitely keep everyone posted. Both shops that were suggested about a couple hundred miles from me so it'll be a when in area thing and that's if I remember and/or have room for the gun when I'm heading that direction. I may try post the pictures on other sites but I'm not very excited about advertising what I've got for guns. I really appreciate all the info info and insight. Like I said before, I'm more interested in finding some sort of background or history on the gun. I'm not looking for what it's worth because it's not something that's going to be sold in my lifetime.
  6. Old Double barrel

    I'll have to take another look and see if I can find any kind of markings that I've maybe missed. It won't ever get fired in my lifetime. I am hoping to find a couple old pin fire shells to display alongside it. I really doubt the gun has any "real" value and agree that it's probably an inexpensive gun. It will look good hanging over my bar in the basement though. Thanks all for the recommendations!
  7. Bourbon and Whiskey

    You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes.
  8. Bourbon and Whiskey

    I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill. I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled. Less than 20 on the big A.
  9. Old Double barrel

    The trouble would be finding the pinfire shells for it. And then finding someone to take the first shot with it. There are a couple other things that don't function correctly either. One of the hammers doesn't stay cocked. It's a decent looking gun though. I'm very surprised that the stock doesn't have any dings or scratches.
  10. Old Double barrel

    Never thought about that. Then I could just double the offer and know what it's worth. I can see the pictures? I'll try loading them again to see if they show up
  11. Bourbon and Whiskey

    I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though.
  12. Old Double barrel

    I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge. If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar.
  13. I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction.
  14. I wouldn't mind having a lever action 30-30 just because everyone should have one. I'd bet a big percentage of us carried one our first time out deer hunting. My grandpa had a Marlin in either .44 or .357 that I wish I'd have gotten. I've also thought about a 45-70.
  15. This is an intriguing round for sure. Ballistics and long range performance is supposed to be good. Ammo seems priced reasonably. A big plus is that you can get it in an AR-15 and with a 90 grain bullet I wouldn't be afraid to use it on deer sized animals. I've always liked the idea of having multiple uppers for my AR.
