Re: Blackbuck and Boar in Argentina

Yeah, I'm getting a shoulder mount.
My wife's not so happy about having it in the house, but it'll be in my den and it's important to me, so I'm getting it.

Re: Blackbuck and Boar in Argentina

Well, I collected a nice blackbuck. One shot at 180 yds from a sitting position - I refused to shoot from the damn truck window.

Re: Nomad whiskey from Spain

I ordered 3 bottles to save a bit on the shipping cost. With shipping and tax, it comes to a little over $43 a bottle. Worth it in my opinion.

Re: Nomad whiskey from Spain

Odessaman, Yeah, that’s it!
Too bad the store is 130 miles away. Might have to order a case.

Nowhere Mon, 80 proof is pretty much standard for whiskey, Scotch or bourbon or rum or tequila.

Nomad whiskey from Spain

In Spain a month ago, this sort-of-Scotch was recommended to me and I bought a bottle. As a fan of Scotch, I’ve tried lots of different brands, but this stuff is amazing. It’s made with a selection of over 30 malt and grain whiskies aged between 5 and 8 years, which are blended together and matured ...

Re: Blackbuck and Boar in Argentina

Mailing meat into the US is still illegal.
Sorry, I thought you were talking about the meat. I already have about 80 knives, but another one wouldn't hurt.

Re: Blackbuck and Boar in Argentina

I might, except that I'm only taking a carry-on and my day pack.

Blackbuck and Boar in Argentina

Got all my reservations made for a Blackbuck and wild boar hunt in Argentina this fall. It’ll be spring down there, about like May up here. Blackbuck is an Indian antelope that’s being crowded out by the rapidly-expanding population in India. But since they’ve been exported to South America and Texa...

Frankenstein 2011

I have a 9mm STI SteelMaster that I won at a match several years ago. I wanted to use the 2011 platform in pistol league competition, but the SteelMaster has a compensator and a red dot sight, both of which are banned in the league. So, I bought a slide designed for a 5” barrel, but wanted a 6” barr...

Getting ready for Spain

My wife and I are doing a road trip in Spain and Portugal this fall and feel it's necessary to get "into the spirit". Both these Spanish brandies are pretty good, but I need to pick up a bottle of Soberano Solera and one of Lepano Gran Reserva so I'll know what to buy when we get over there. Researc...
