You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them.

You can play a game so members can see how it works.
If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going.
Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses.
This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch
Anyone here know anything about this round?
My father-in-laws's uncle used to have a lever action rifle that shot .35 Whelen. I just did a search to try and learn more about the round and see what the gun may have been but it appears that lever action guns were never really available in .35 Whelen and it was most likely a .30-.06 that was altered.
If that is true it sure makes me want to learn more about that gun.
Does anyone here have any knowledge of .35 Whelen?
I'm thinking of getting a lever action soon and because of price and availability of ammo was only considering a .30-.30 but now am looking harder at a .35 Remington.
id rather fall through the ice and listen to tom yammer on and and on in his defensive videos.
i've got extensive hours with the proview. no thanks. tying cone angle to the sensitivity knob is one fo the dumbest designs i've seen. it has application sure, but its limited
Brings back memories and reminds me of something I had totally forgotten!! Decades ago was at a wilderness cabin with a couple guys and on of them had this carbine. I shot it a few times (open sights) and took it out for a walk next morning. Shot two deer at around 50 yards and they both dropped dead. Am surprised the item you have in photo has a recoil pad since I do not recall any recoil at all. Always thought it was a handy little piece but never used it again and had no inclination to buy one. Do have a 10-22 of course
(doesn't every home have one:) and other items. Many don't know Ruger makes their BIG rifle in .22 caliber with a laminated stock. Had one with nice Zeiss glass and it was a tack driver. Don't recall what I did with it.
Okay, back to standby.
Lots of different opinions on this topic apparently. I've done about ever single one listed so far and the best way I've found is to lower the ice shack all the way, pop the tops on your catch covers and start drilling holes (try and be as close to the center as possible, no big deal if you're a little off). Don't clear any of the slush just yet but place the hole sleeves down your holes. With all the slush still there you may have to step on them to cut through the slush but it makes a really good seal. Then I sweep what shavings have come up to the house (if any) back down the holes. Get yourself a slush copter http://www.slushcopter.com/ and start clearing your holes. I spent the $60+ on a slush bucket and totally regret it after spending my first season hauling slush all season. The slush copter takes 10 seconds to clear a hole filled with slush and you don't have to lift anything or scoop your holes afterwards. By far one of the best investments I've made for my ice shack. Never blocked my shack either but not a bad idea to at least have a spud bar with to break yourself free if you do freeze down.
For some rookie advice: Get yourself a slush copter and a set of IC Nuts https://winchdrivertools.com/. Your back will thank you. Also, if you have a Honda Generator it is mandatory that you get CLICK HERE to change your oil. It makes empting your oil so much quicker and cleaner. Other nice add-ons for a Honda generator is the extended-run fuel tank or an hour meter to keep track of hours (for oil changes).
Congrats on the new toy. Tight lines!
