Totally politically incorrect

This is a bit off topic, but, on the plus side, Single shot, black powder .45-70 rifles were used.

This video is about hunting Teddy Bears. PETSA (People fot the Ethical Treatment of Stuffed Animals) is already boycotting it.

You know, if you soak them in water first, then freeze them ....... they make better reactive targets.......

Now that's funny.

Is that you Gehrhard?


I really think the plated, buffered, 00 or 000 buck in 3" Super Magnum would be adequate for these dangerous bruins. Sorry to doubt you.

I'm pretty sure that was a smokeless round . . . ?

The nice thing about those breeds of bears is that, unlike turkeys, they come already stuffed.

Hilarious!

Hey Mike, where'd you get that trigger guard on the handi rifle and how did you attach it? I've got a 45-70 HR myself.

Thanks for the entertainment!!

Hi Dlbarr,

That was a small Kentucky rifle trigger guard I got from Dixie Gun Works many years ago.

I cut off the old plastic trigger guard flush with the receiver. Then I inletted the tail of the new guard into the butt stock and secured it with a wood screw. Then I drilled and tapped the receiver for a 10x32 screw and used that to secure the front of the guard.

Thanks Mike. I have a brass trigger guard or two laying around. I'll see if they might be a fit. Did you disassemble the action to cut that old plastic guard or did you just do it on the gun?

Boy, you'd think by now I'd know just what I should show my wife and what I should reserve for my own personal entertainment.

She didn't see the same hilarity that I saw. It wasn't "doghouse bad", but apparently she has a softer spot for ursus theodori than I thought!
