    I belatedly remembered that the Kuhnhausen manual on my Remington 870 was not a manual on the 870, but rather on Remington shotguns in general. Off to the bookshelf! However, I was quite surprised to...

    Oblivion: this turned out to be a surprisingly good movie, at least if you don't stop to think too hard about the plot. Of course, if you do start to think about it, the entire movie makes no sense...

    Thinking of making a short 11-87

    So I have this Remington 11-87 Express. The gun came with a 28" vent rib barrel that seems ridiculously long to me. I never actually used that barrel, I got a 21" barrel with "rifle" sights that...
