Or better yet, if you don't want to read political threads just skip them. That is the great thing about forums like this, if topic does not interest you don't click on it. Has worked for me for years

I understand your request and why. I understand the forum rules. We are making history today in this country whichever the outcome. Many/most DO want/need to discuss.  I have many

6'8" 260#. I'd say so.

 

Sure don’t take long,mines 6’4” 290, busts loaders and haulers all day.

my gurl is the different one 5’6” 120 but boxing and kickboxing along with some other stuff I can’t pronounce, oh and a healthy outlook.

This ain’t a tractor but it’s got tracks, it’s out front of the dukes armory in vancouver, never dealt there but the outfit I was with in the early sixties has an old cannon out front, the greenies call it warmongering screw’em!

this one is a 6 pounder and the armory  one is six times this size on huge steel wheels.

i dug up the cannon it is a 64 pounder, made in the 1860s.

I guess 44-40

Case looks too long to me.

Maybe so. I thought it looked short for a 45-70.  Maybe he will correct us both. Lol

Years ago, I had a Marlin 1895 in 45 /70.  That's the only reason I thought of that cartridge.

Ok I know this will sound stoopid but what year was your 1895? Reason asking? My old man left me a marlin 44/40 that’s an 1889 or so, it’s put away so I just can’t grab it, but I contacted marlin and it was dated either 1892 or 1896 I don’t exactly remember but the museum there said it was shipped thereabouts.

Just remember whoever wins the presidential race we will all be ok in the end. Annoyed about things but it's just an election.

Below are a couple pics of me harvesting rice with my 1460.

Thx-Ace

Still got one. It’s not an original though. Modern “guide gun” version

Don't remember for sure, but I bought it new in or around 1975.

My Grandpa had one shortly after he came home from WW2. He purchased the used JD when he came home. He said that was enough to make him go red. According to him it was a “60 or 66”. They did a lot of clover and small seeded things for neighbors.  Most went into the Chevy truck in the second pic.

They are great pictures to have. I wish we had old pictures like that of my grandpa.

Actually I traded in a Remington 660 in .243 (sweet little rifle with laminated beech and walnut stock) on it.  I wanted a brush gun - didn't care to sit and be sniper.  Loved to try to walk 'em up.  Didn't get many that way, but had fun.

I passed on most of the shots I got since they were moving, but it was an exciting way to hunt.  I never hunted for something I didn't want to eat, but would rather have the thrill than the meat.  The thrill wasn't very filling, but just getting close enough to try for a shot was a large charge for me.

Ok I gotcha, the same as buying a Winnie new, but old numbers.

I don’t know of any others besides those two actually. I hope to someday find more but Dad’s side was big on working, not taking pictures.

Yes. Model numbers and years don’t necessarily coincide.

Right.  First centerfire I ever bought was an 1894 Winchester.  Brand new in '71 or '72 for $65.  It was really sloppy - could barely hit the broad side of a barn with it.  Traded it in on the aforementioned Remington .243.

I am humbly requesting as many posts as you can muster on tractors, home improvement, meal planning, oil, winter weather, green agricultural equipment, etc for the next few days.

 

 

 

Here is some green.
