    Really? Never had it? I would have thought that it was on most farm menus. Dogs can be pretty tough on things. I new this family at church that had a couple of dogs that would chase cats up trees and then take turns keeping them there until the grew exhausted and fell out. Apparently, these dogs picked up the habit on their own and they could not break them of it.

    I could go squirrel hunting, but never learned how to rabbit hunt. I used to use a bolt action .22 for squirrel. Nice, clean, no pellets. And not too much noise either. You don't want to wait forever for the squirrels to settle down and come out again.

    I would imagine. My brother-in-law has some kind of Russian sniper rifle. I don't know much about it, but the video of my sister and her kids shooting it is pretty interesting. It raises a heck of a cloud of dust when it goes off and practically lifts them off the ground. Of course these kids I am talking about are over 18 and pretty good-sized lads.

    Coincidentally, I will have to go along with Stanyon and you on this. Lamb is probably one of my favorites. We ate pretty well growing up now that I think about it. Lamb was a regular on the menu. I had leg of lamb about three times this year already.

    Where I would regularly hunt, there was a cornfield next to woods. There was a large population and you could set down if you wanted and get your limit in 30 minutes to an hour for squirrels. For rabbits, I had to keep walking.

    I used whatever was available from a .22LR, .410 Winchester single shot to a 20 ga. H&R single shot. I liked that last one the best, since you could use it for everything from rabbits, squirrels, turkey to deer. It also had a short overall length making it easier to haul through the brush.

    I too enjoy my lamb. My housemate, not so much. But if I cook it in a curry she seems to love it. Ooh! I am craving Lamb Saag. I wonder if I can add some local fresh tomatoes instead of canned. There is a local vegetable stand that gets tomatoes from central Washington. Western Washington does not have the appropriate weather to grow tomatoes. They are far better than anything shipped from California, almost as good as what we raised ourselves on the farm.

    I have a friend that makes this very simple, but really tasty cucumber and tomato salad that goes with a lot of dishes and is very refreshing as well as tasty. We have a lot of farmer's markets and stands to choose from here. I have not grown my own in several years.

    Don't know exactly, some pillow ticking and some spit or some beeswax and tallow (dependent on the season, I mix more wax with tallow in the hotter times)
    I couldn't tell you the exact cost but I could figure it all out for you iffen I wanted to. I make my own powder on occasion which would skew the results

    Nah, I wasn't thinking musket balls, which I imagine would be significantly cheaper.

    Hell I'll buy my shotgun from Walmart.

    Ironic isn't it? All those weapons and nobody thought of grabbing one to stop the shooter. Probably didn't want to get sued or prosecuted by the Socialist Democrats as illegally acquiring a firearm.


    I could just picture the sign above the counter.....

    IN EVENT of EMERGENCY


    "It's only okay to stop a rampaging shooter in the store as long as you go through the proper paperwork and wait times before acquiring the gun legally from the counter and stopping the Carnage".

    Yes ! with old time black powder and the cloud of smoke it creates, it is easy to see why massed muskets firing made the soldiers virtually blind when firing.
