Ruger’s Hawkeye Laminate Compact The case of subject #17108

When I was a youngster, about the age of twelve, there were few factory accommodations for proper length of pull in centerfire rifles. A tough row to hoe if you were “gifted” with short upper arms and more typical lower arms. It’s a genetic thing. The problem is, the stretch to reach made a proper…

Ruger’s Mini Thirty 7.62×39 Deer season is on its way

10/03/2021 Just ten more days until the official start of Fall and there are so many projects to wrap up before winter. Frequent, if not heavy rainfall, kept the porch deck wet.
