Re: Wife treats me like a God

Re: Awaken Teotwawki

I've fired US military 5.56×45mm NATO rounds in a Ruger Mini-14.

Re: Preserving Wood Gun Stock

“Boiled Linseed Oil.”

Will the boiled linseed oil darken the wood? I'm really into keeping this gun as near original as possible? It'll be 100 years old in 3 years.

Re: Gun Cleaning Products

What brand of bore cleaners and lube do you like to use?

It depends upon what I’m shooting. When I finish at the rifle range, I’ll run four or three patches wet with Kroil through the bore followed by a patch or two of Hoppe’s No. 9 [more]
