Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

Thanks. I have his sight bookmarked but not followed. I don't get to him often enough to have seen this.

Grace and peace

Very cool articles. Although everyone I know says the same thing about Mini-14 accuracy, to me it's a great rifle that has far less problems than the AR-15's that I've owned. I recall one survival forum had a poll and most of the members would opt for the Mini-14 if they could only have one semi-auto .223 rifle. I've had exceptionally good luck with my ranch rifle and it shoots better than I can. And it keeps on ticking.

Loved the piece about the .32 rifle. I'd like to do that to my old H&R .410 from my childhood. I'm a big fan of the .32 acp as far as being a fun caliber to shoot. I just wish I had a machine shop and the tools and skills necessary to do this kind of mod myself. Maybe I can find someone around here that can do it for me.

Hope all is well in Illinois, friend!

Hey there Pumice,

Yep, I too have trouble keeping up with everyone. Ed's stuff is precious; he has been at guns and online posting longer than most. He really knows his stuff.

My best to you,

Zack

Hey there El Fisho,

I sure hope all is well in your world. Illinois is as corrupt and bankrupt as ever :(

Ed sure does know his guns. I never get tired of reading his work.

I just knew that you would love that walking gun ;)

Take care my good friend,

Zack
