    Yes, I know Reeds landing and Old Gun, it's a very nice area. Lots of deer!!!!

    Next time you are in town drop me a line and we can grab a beer or coffee.

    If the Squirrels are in town that would be even better I went to about twenty games last year.

    Looks like more than Remington are in trouble.

    Strange paranoia - is it uniquely American? Do gun sales go up and down in other developed countries as a result of elections?

    now thats a pickle, whats the NRA to do.
    Gun sales surged to record levels in 2016, when Barack Obama was president and there were fears that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would implement gun controls.
    When Trump, a Republican endorsed by the National Rifle Association, was elected, those fears were alleviated. But sales also dropped off.
    Support a candidate who won't change gun laws but bankrupts their producers - or - a candidate who might change the laws but improves sales......?

    I had a "Fieldmaster" when I was young.
    Great gun.

    Keep calm, persistence beats resistance.

    I was given one of those some years ago. It had stood in the corner of a bedroom beside a wardrobe long enough for the ammunition in it to go green. And the action was broken, if you tipped the gun back and forth it loaded and cocked itself. The owner had 3 young boys, fortunately nothing happened. Presented to me muzzle first, the cocking action moved, and I knocked it out of his hand batting the muzzle aside. Magazine was nearly full.

    That's interesting. There are literally millions of acres of public land in Wisconsin. All open to hunting and recreation by the general public.
