  1. Wawa.......the only place people will go out of their way to hold the door for you but will cut you off and yell at you in the parking lot!
  2. Great bird with an awesome beard. Congrats Mike!
  3. I’m not against hunting with my crossbow but I just enjoy my compound more especially after getting a new bow last year. I had to hunt with my crossbow two years ago until I had my left shoulder scoped after a bicep tear reconnection.
  4. Well not only has turkey hunting and getting close to sealing the deal but not working out been driving me nuts but now I’ve gone and hurt myself again. Last week I was trying to tighten a leaking union with a pipe wrench and I almost stopped it but it was still leaking. I braced myself for one last go at it and yanked with all I had..... that’s when my shoulder came out of socket. I managed to get it back in and it’s only a little sore but keeps wanting to pop out. I had my arm in a sling for a week and it seems to be getting better but still pops every now and then. I can’t draw my bow back.... ask me how I know..... yep I’m an idiot!!!! Anyone ever have this happen and how long did it take to recover. I’d really like to hunt with my compound this season and not just the crossbow. This sucks!!!

    Torn Bicep

    You’ll be ok. Just wanted to prepare you for what’s coming and help with some pain reducing info. I had my surgery in March of 2017 and I don’t have any problems at all. I will say one thing.... welcome to the club of knowing when cold/wet weather is approaching. That’s the only time my bicep will ache some now. Mine was reattached with a titanium pin.

    Torn Bicep

    Nerve blocker is similar to the epidural they give woman during child birth. It’s a needle that temporarily blocks pain in your shoulder and arm. It will make you feel like this isn’t so bad after surgery until it wears off.

    Torn Bicep

    Yea I have some experience with a torn bicep. Like others have said get it done ASAP. I had my surgery almost a month after tearing it and they had a hard time stretching the bicep back into place. Mine was torn from the shoulder which they told me is better then from the elbow as far as pain and recovery. Still sucked!!! If they ask if you want a nerve blocker before surgery say yes. It will keep you feeling good for about 12 to 16 hours. Have your pain meds ready for when it wears off trust me. Get used to sleeping in a recliner because it will be your best friend for a couple weeks or lots of pillows in your bed to keep you from moving. Keep your arm in the sling for as long as they say and the last important thing is physical therapy. Be very diligent with it and do everything they say. It’s very important to getting yourself back to full function in the shortest amount of time. Good luck and I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    Old gun

    Sorry but I have to disagree. Bolt lacks the proper safety, base plate in front of trigger guard is different and stock is different. Bolt and bolt handle are definitely not a 1903. Receiver should be marked with manufacturer too if it was a 1903.
  10. Congrats on a great bird!!
  11. I agree I'll take some luck while hunting any day. Nice job on getting it done on a great bird.

    Awesome! Congratulations.

    Remembering A Old Friend

    Sorry for your loss. Memories we make with good friends help us to remember all the great times and hunts that we get to share together.

    Old gun

    This one is tough. I will say it's not a Garand (as already said they are semi auto), 1903 (bolt safety or bolt release is not present on this one) or an Enfield (different stock,sights and barrel design than this rifle) . Looks like the front and rear sights are missing. The sling swivel in front of the trigger guard is also odd to me. I've never seen the latch that's on the right hand side of the barrel of this rifle before either.
