Having the email name Barbarian57, I get a lot of emails from very generous people offering to make certain parts of me (that I don't have!) bigger, and asking if I want them to find me girls. So I guess I can come in here, right?!

I don't have my big bore anymore, but it isn't far. My BIL has it. It's a Ruger Super Blackhawk. I got it when they were just starting to make more guns in SS. And I got a matching scope for it, but I had to have the ring mounts chromed and then glass beaded by a friend to match. I hunted with it soley for three years before shooting my first buck with it. And that's a whole nuther story Then the following year I got a doe with it also, but was also using my rifle. Unfortunately I did not check my bullet quantities for my rifle before setting out for hunting camp I won't tell you how many shots I had in it, but all were one shot kills, then I threw that down and drew my pistol on a straggler that was wondering where everybody went I might have a pic somewhere, but will have to see if my scanner still works.

I had a shoulder holster UB. I never saw handgun slings like you show there, but I'm not that into guns anymore. Just when I want to fool around a little.

Pacanis....

I bought a shoulder holster rig for the Smith...but it was just too big/bulky and got in the way mostly...Don't know if I could find it now....The 'sling' is not used for transport, but rather for stabilization. The sling goes around your neck...when both arms are fully extended it helps to 'steady' the sighting.. IF you can hold the red dot on a fly on a cows back at 100 yds.. the fly will disappear...the cow will never flinch.

Awww, stabilization.... shows you how long I've been out of it.
Back when I hunted, stabilization was entirely dependent on the night before, and how much coffee you could get down that morning

Gun powder and bourbon don't mix...Kinda like bourbon and steering wheels...
For me there is a time to drink, and a time to shoot, and never shall the twain meet...

Agreed!
The night before buck we were in the sack around 10, which was pretty good for us because we usually didn't go to bed at all the prior two days Up and eating by 4, in the woods at our spots by 5. Then a 2 hour wait til you could see well enough to shoot. We hunted pretty hard back then, and drank pretty hard too, but never mixed the two.

Then, when I got I got married (albeit briefly), my wife talked me into hunting at her father's camp with his brothers, his son and so on. Those guys didn't know when to stop and half didn't leave the camp til mid-morning. Ten or fifteen years they had that camp and never got one deer out of it, let alone a buck. Til I got there
I scouted around a little Saturday and Sunday. Found a spot. Got reasonably close to it Monday morning. And was back at camp by 10 with an eight point We had to rig something up to even hang it!
