We are camping at full hook up park in Deming NM. The sewer connection is about 5″ out of the ground so it was difficult to keep the exit end of the sewer hose in the hole. I’ve seen a commercially available device called a “Sewer Pig” and decided I needed to whip one up.

I’m on a winter cross country trip. Traveling from Massachusetts to Arizona in February. When I left MA the Forest River 19RR Toy Hauler was winterized. I needed to get south, to warmer climate before I could De-Winterize. First night was in the 20s while I stopped at a Pilot/Flying J for the night. I
Well. I went and did it again….Bought another boat. I gotta be crazy! I’ve usually owned a boat or had access to a boat throughout my life. When I was 12 years old my father and I built a 8′ sailing pram to which I almost immediately added a 7HP outboard as sailing was WAY
The SKB 100 and 200 double barrel shotguns are the favorite of the Single Action Shooting Society or Cowboy Action Shooting crowd. But they have one relatively large issue. The forend tends to creep forward under recoil and in some cases may split the forend wood. I decided to try and bed the forend on
A few months back I wandered into the local Cabelas and in the “Gun Library” was a very nice looking Marlin Model 92 lever action rifle at a very agreeable price. It had been refinished which in the hobby of collectable firearms is a No-No. Strange, a reconditioned automobile will increase its value, but refinish
PROPER 17HMR BORE GUIDE! When Hornady developed the 17HMR rimfire cartridge, they really hit a home-run! And the rifle manufacturers turned out a plethora of rifles to chamber it. But unlike the 22RF cartridge, which many seasoned shooters will tell you, might never need to have the bore scrubbed, the 17HMR with its “real”
Here is a quick story about my Ballard single shot rifle. I’m a nut about these vintage single shot rifles. It started with the acquisition of an 1874 Sharps a few years ago. I thought it would be fun to use on the Side Matches at the Cowboy Action Shoots that I’m active in and
I have a set of 1860 Colt “clones (Pietta) that I shoot in Cowboy Action Competition. These revolvers have been converted to cartridge using Kirst Converter Cylinders. Cowboy Action Shooting uses your firearms hard! These revolvers have been used most every weekend for the past two years. I recently did a barrel alignment on them.
We perform a modification to the magazine and the trigger guard on the CZ-527 that converts the exposed, some feel rather ugly, drop down magazine to a more modern looking flush mounted magazine. BEFORE AFTER Here’s what we do: Mill the trigger guard to a flush bottom fit. We do not offer blueing, so
I’ve started a journey to the world of “Paper Patched” cast bullet shooting. Back in the days of the Buffalo Hunters and the Civil War, most folks used “Paper Patched Bullets” in their rifles. Paper Patched bullets have no lube grooves like a conventional lead bullet. A PP bullet simply has straight sides and the
