I have an old spear gun I use from time to time (a mares I think) and I need a new band and possibly a new spear hear. Is there anyone near the Hammond/ Ponchatoula area that can help me? Thanks in advance
last week I had a gentleman come in with a custom rifle on a remington 700 action, it has a number 5 contour barrel with break and he wanted a scope that would give him the best clarity, an easy to use ballistic compensation system, and magnification for close shots as well as the ability to shoot to about 600 yards. He\'s hunting in high elevation, game is elk, and in the future, sheep, so weight was a consideration. keeping these things in mind, we went with a swarovski 3-18x50 z6 with ballistic turret and 4W reticle. we like the 4w because it gives you some windage references, and is a nice all around reticle we helped design. it gives him plenty of magnification, it\'s light considering it\'s size, and was a perfect fit for the rifle and intended task
for the base, he wanted something solid and very dependable, and we also though it would hurt to add a little extra adjustment, considering a lot of hunting scopes lack the adjustment range of their tactical counter parts, so we went with a nightforce 20 moa picatinny rail.
for the rings, we stuck with nightforce, and with that number 5 contour barrel, the low .885 optical center line rings fit easily, and in my experience with this set up, works up to a 56mm objective.
swarovski also offers some really nice lens covers, and while they are expensive, they are worth every penny if they protect your glass, so we set the scope up with said lens covers.
here is a short video showing the completed product. enjoy.
my best friend is getting married and for his bachelor party he wants to do some deep sea fishing or bow fishing, maybe both. whats running right now? looking for recommendations and thanks in advance

fished lake ponchatrain saturday, got stumped. we went all over the place but the wind played hell with the fishing. still had a good time, stayed at my camp on the tangipahoa river friday night, fished all night off the dock and my buddy caught a black drum and a gar. my camp is about 5 miles upstream from the lake ponchatrain so the drum was pretty weird.
hello everyone. I'm thinking of going fishing this weekend in lake ponchatrain/maurepas this weekend. I'll be staying at my camp on the tangipahoa river and working from the mouth of the tangipahoa river out from there. anyone have any tips been around lake ponchatrain lately, heard if the fish are biting and what they are biting on? any advice/tip would be appreciated.
i was wondering if anyone had any tips for chooseing a rod and reel. we fish for redfish and specks mostly, and there are so many rods and reel to choose from, i'm wondering if anyone has any tips for me. any help would be appreciated.
I want to join a shooting club with a range.does anyone know of any shooting clubs around here that offer m1 garands to members? i remember hearing about one at one time and i can't seem to find out if it's still around. if anyone knows post or e-mail me and let me know, i'd appreciate it.
i've heard you can get 4$ per tail for hunting these things, wondering if you need a special license or anything. also, what do you need to hunt hogs and other critters the state deems "pesk"
just need some advice on what choke tubes i need for a 31/2 inch remington 870 super mag. i have a modified choke, so i think i'm ok as far as duck or any small game goes, i'm wondering what i need for deer really, or anyother chokes that might come in handy. e-mail me with any advice, or just post a reply. another thing, i'm thinking i want chokes that shoot both lead and steel shot, is this feasible or not?
