    Did you run like a striped butt ape?
    Not only I ran, but everyone around me. Wambli backed up and got behind Mrs. Ska. Evidently she's directional in her explosions, much like a claymore mine.

    Another Lawyer answer... "Depends" on the mission, location, and desired outcome. Break it down for me a little more specific and I will be pleased to provide my pack out.. Urban, Rural, Tracking, Protection, Intelligence, Sniper, Threat Level, Etc.... Good question, most only think of the weapons and those are simply a tool.. Glad to be here....

    Why don't we go with a urban intel/sniper mission in semi-hostile area. You are standing at the gear locker, what do you pack?

    Zorba, we need to talk about your choice in activities if it takes you 20+ rounds to take a coyote. More training or have you ever thought of knitting? LOLs

    If you are using a .270 and it seems you are torturing the coyotes, we need to work on accuracy and shot placement... The round is more than adequate for the application in my opinion.. This is not degrading your ability, if you make a good shot the animal can often function for a short period of time, not unlike hunting deer and they run or spasm after a heart shot, until brain function ceases. This could take up to 20+ seconds.. In the same manner we train in the Long Range Interdiction (Sniper), the only sure instant switch would be to the brain, specifically just above where the brain stem enters the skull.

    Clent, I am also a Texan. And I feel there is hope for you as it sounds like you don't write the .270 off altogether. I suspect the comment about it being good for women and small statured men was at the prodding of wambli. He's another one on here that has been tainted by visions of grandur of the purist 7mm clan. Now you tell me how .007 of an inch ..... oh never mind. Hey buffy, do you have a pair of clean underwear I can borrow??? :jester:

    Snake you seem to hang a lot of your happiness on that .007". Are you that used to coming up just a hair too short?
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    I would put money on the fact that women wouldn't even notice that extra .007 of an inch................unless you are referring to the calibre and not something else....
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Yes. That's EXACTLY what I said.

    He likes to shoot... Good enough for me... I know Tier 1 Operators with far more interesting lifestyles and activities. Your wives and girlfriends might like for you to learn a few of those moves...

    "6’/6’ square of nonmetallic window screen"

    Not to get too deep but concealment and you never know if you may have to move to another environment. I like to back everything up that I know how to do with technical verification when possible. Measure twice cut once if time is available.

    Mosquitoes... LOLs It assists in remaining unobserved. Similar to using a hunting blind, just not a fancy..

    Something tells me that when you say Kestrel you are not talking about the bird??
    Time to check my google-fu

    GOTCHA Kestrel weather and environmental meter - now that makes sense

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    My responses to any of the questions will be of my own personal opinion and of a generic nature on this forum. I am at no time representing the government or its operational techniques and all information presented can be obtained via open source. Sorry, guys had to put that out there.

    Seems I am two days late and several dollars short. Welcome to the party that is never the same twice.

    What is the best way to handle rouge groundhogs?

    Suppressed .22 behind the ear? Or is that only if it runs back in its hole and gives us a longer winter?

    Never had an opportunity to deal with them, sorry... I would think in a similar manner as prairie dogs..

    Glad to be here..

    I've never seen a groundhog wearing rouge.

    Wambli might have inspired the comments a little. I will stick with em.my 5.56, 7.62, 30-06...
    Each to his own. I'm not nor never did try to sway anyone to get or use a .270 Win. in ernest anyway. And I do shoot other cartridges>I also love my 30-06 as well. I shoot a variety of different guns. I bought my .270 Back in the day of Jack! He inspired me on it along with a few locals. I got it the summer between my Jr. and Sr. year in high school, summer of 1966. I killed my first deer with it that fall and have killed over 40 with it in all. I also have had a 6mm Rem. and .308 Win.

    I've been having guns built or rebarreled the last 25 years beginning in 1989 with a Mauser action barreled in .280 Rem. with a Shaw 26 inch Chrome Moly barrel, another personal favorite cartridge of mine. I bedded this one into a B&C Carbon Fiber stock.

    I've also got a love affair with a few classic quarter bores. I had a Howa 1500 which was a .22-250 rebarreled to 250 Savage (Just because it is such a classic) with a Krieger 26 inch SS barrel in 1-9" twist. It slings 115 grain Combined Technologies bullets very accurately, and so far has taken a hog and a deer.

    Then I had built a 24/47 Yugo Mauser into a .257 Ackley Improved with a 26 inch Shilen SS match barrel. My smith bent the bolt (he does a really nice job with that), install a Timney Sporter Trigger, and a 3 position Model 70 style safety, and a slightly stronger after market firing pin spring to decrease lock time. He also modified the original Mauser steel floor plate and made it a functional hinged floor plate, which again he really does a nice job of. I bedded it into a Boyd's Classic Walnut Stock which I finished in Tung oil myself and rubbed with rotten stone.

    I have another Yugo that I had sportered but left the stepped Mil Surp barrel in 8x57 in place. I also had this one fitted with a Beuler two position safety, and my gun smith removed the rear sight assembly and the front sight. He also installed the same type Timey Sporter Trigger and aftermarket firing pin spring. I bedded this one into a Boyd's Pepper Laminate Classic stock and finished it in Satin Poly Urethane.This has become one of my favorite hunting rifles. I have one more Yugo action and a Zastava Charles Daly Mauser Action to barrel. I'm thinking the Yugo will become a 6mm Rem. and the Zastava some form of 6.5 mm. Then I'll have all my bases covered.

    My latest is a rebarrel of a 1988 Ruger 77 fro 30-06 to 9.3x62. It's a real slammer. I killed a spike buck with it opening weekend with it. Anyway, that's what I'm into and this gives you an idea of my tastes in firearms and shows you I CAN and DO shoot other things besides a .270.
