    Yes, no issues. Good deterent probably. I have one on each display. But, its a boat, if they want it, they can get it with a pry bar.
  2. 45-70

    I was loading the Remington 300gr JHP bullets. They shot very well and killed every deer I've shot with them. But...blood trail was real weak on a few occasions and I decided when I need to buy more bullets, I was going to try something different. By real weak, I mean a drop or 2 of blood in 80 or 90 yards but most of the time I could see them go down or have a good Idea where they are anyways. This could also be my problem too, I usually don't shoot very low on the chest either. But the other half that I've shot drop or make a bound and drop. I'm sure it depends on what bones I hit but it seems that the rib shots tend to run further with much less blood. Looking at reviews, I might try the Barnes or the Silvertips next. Most likely the Silvertips. I love my 1895GS and I'm so glad I bought it before the prices went up $300!
  3. Oswego docks

    The fingers are in.
  4. Black box

    The cannons are supposed to be .540 I think. The black box allows you to tune to different voltage.

    Dylan, I have the Marlin in 45-70. Awesome rifle. As far as shooting deer, it doesn't do any more damage than my 12ga, 30-06, or .50 cal. Shoot them in the shoulder and you do damage, through the ribs and you waste less. I handload for it. Lighter bullets, higher power rounds and it shoots about an inch at 100 yds and the recoil is less than my slug gun. The recoil is different than my 06 or slug gun and is more manageable than guys would think. Do a Sims custom fit pad and you will be happy. With just factory loads, it is comparable to a slug. Last I looked, the Marlin would be the better choice if you might handload. I think it was a stronger action than the Henry. There is different pressure tolerances between different actions and ages of rifles. That is why most factory ammo is lower pressure to be acceptable in most good condition rifles.
  6. Oswego docks

    No short dock as of yesterday, it isn't needed to launch, the main dock is there. They are putting the docks in though.
  7. Oswego docks

    No changes. You can still launch easily because the main dock stays in all year. Forecast isn't good this coming weekend.
  8. It was sold a couple years ago.
  9. Oswego docks

    The main dock at the launch is in all winter. The fingers between lanes are not.
  10. Oswego docks

    No. Chantelle said maybe next week or likely the following. Usually the Green dock (my dock) is in around the 15th to 18th with the rest after that.
