“Dragoons ride to the scene of the battle, then fight dismounted.”
150 year old technology (125 if you count just the 30-30 cartridge) still works pretty well.
Spent a week with Crickett Rifle company, have many new photos. They also have a very interesting new product in the works to be announced later this year, a logical extension of their expertise in precision manufacturing.
22WMR is hardly an efficient pistol caliber, most of the time. The exception is when it’s used with CCI Gold Dots or other loads made just for short barrels. Then it becomes usable, if not ideal, for self-defense.
The plus side is that 22WMR has minimal recoil compared to 38 Special. So does 32H&R Magnum, but 22WMR ammo is far, far more available and quite a bit less expensive. So this chambering splits the difference between the ideal practice and the useful defensive loads. For somebody who only owns one revolver, that can be a useful compromise.
Revolver: Charter Arms Pathfinder
These retards are running some sort of “webnanny” and blocking sites I need. Any suggestions how to get around this? I will complain to the management in the morning, but I doubt it would help much. Could change hotels, I suppose…

In the last two years, I lend a few things out that have not come back. Specifically, two sets of active hearing protection (Peltor Pro and some other, cheaper set), and a “top-break revolver” Crosman .177 air gun. I don’t keep very close track of such items when good friends ask to borrow them, but I do want to have them back eventually. If you recall seeing the items shown below in your possession, please let me know.
Fortunately, a competent friend figured it out and fixed the box by cannibalizing parts from my old case.
It had worked fine for several months, now won’t even turn on. Indicator light on the external card reader was on until I flipped the power switch on the back off-on, and now that’s off also. Not sure if there’s some internal reset.
I have to leave for a trip tomorrow morning and have two projects that have to be done today. I can try to do them on my laptop, but there’s a third project requiring files from the main computer that I cannot access. Advice on making this work would be much appreciated.
I tried to reach my competent local friends, no luck. This is a very time-sensitive issue, so any leads on who can help right away would be appreciated. The power supply is 1050W and so I can’t get a local replacement today. Not even sure if that’s the culprit, could be a bad switch — I have no way to test it.

Opmod rifle case comes in three lengths, from 33 inches to 43 inches (shown). It’s a basic design, pretty sturdy and decently padded to protect the rifle. Not visible in the photo is a wide shoulder strap.
My trip plans have become more concrete: flying into Charleston to meet with my parents, staying three days, then going to Savannah for three more days.
Looking for suggestions on interesting places to visit in both cities, also any picturesque shore lines or forests.
Also looking for suggestions on lodging. My parents much prefer household-type/less formal accommodations to hotels.
I will be visiting American Tactical Imports in Summerville, but other leads for interesting projects would be welcome. I know that PTR, Ithaca, Jarrett Rifles and FN are in that state, but I do not have much of a connection to any of them yet.
Today marks 25 years since my parents got my out of there and on the way to America. I am very thankful to them for the nearly two decades of personal risk and hard work it took to get out of the Soviet Union.
Personal firearms (and training in their use), and braces. Both give kids a cause for smiling.
