    I have seen great improvement since the early days of the new platform.  I think a major reason is that for accessing this forum I now use Google Chrome rather than Microsoft Internet Explorer.  My main complaint now is that Chrome is constantly trying to hijack my browsing session and send me to pages I have no interest in.  On my computer this is merely irritating.  On my phone it is impossible to deal with.  When I disappear from the forum for a few days at a time it is usually because I am traveling and won't use my phone to access the forum.

    Firefox. Chrome is most likely spyware and certainly "splatters" crap all over your hard drive. Firefox isn't perfect - in fact it has gotten worse over the last several years because they're in a de-contenting race with Chrome to the bottom - but IMO, is still the best of the major browsers.

    I was always and forever cleaning up after Chrome on user's systems...

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    I've been using Firefox for a LONG time. It isn't the browser that's messin' up the photo upload. It's the receiving end that is the problem. On the OTHER gun forums I'm a member on, photo upload IS NOT A PROBLEM; just here. On the others I can drag and drop, I can load from Imgur, or do the similar 'select a photo on the computer' and load it with NO PROBLEMS. Kinda narrows down the source of the problem.

    Try resetting Firefox - that may, or may not, help...

    Yep, I was wanting one of those but wasn't a fan of the black plastic furniture they all had.  When I ran across this one I couldn't resist.  I did what any sane man would do.....I ordered it and then told my wife.  scared smiley

    Good looking wood furniture, and I REALLY like that muzzle brake!

    If I ever make it to the SE Shoot we may have to clear the firing line when I bring this thing out.  That muzzle brake will pretty near knock the hat off anybody standing nearby when it goes off.  You don't just hear it fire, if you are anywhere nearby you feel the concussion.....it is by far my favorite gun to shoot.

    That's a great design.👍
  • tennmiketennmike Senior Member Posts: 22,267 Senior Member
    The .223 and .308 are LOUD  with double hearing protection, especially the .308. Makes you wish for arms about a yard longer.

    Since the 22 hornet doesn’t have a scope mounted, that means it’s unused and unloved, and needs a deserving home. 
    I’ll send you my address.

    That picture was taken in 2007. Too bad; so sad. It's wearing a nice 2-8x-32mm Weaver pistol scope, and so is the .223. :)

    Nice!
  • tennmiketennmike Senior Member Posts: 22,267 Senior Member
    Hate you.
    I bought all three within a 6 week period. I was working around 72 hours a week at the time, and the overtime pay was piling up so I had a friend that owned a gun shop order one every two weeks for me. I was paid every two weeks so I bought one each payday. They're fun to shoot, but the .308 is a bit frisky in the recoil department.

    I just 'struck while the iron was hot'. Those three are just a few of the guns that came into my possession that year thanks to a LOT of time and a half money.
