To each there own. I'll stick with my Rugers.


I do find it interesting how a thread on a specific brand of gun automatically brings out people to say why you should own a different gun, no matter what it is.

Nope. The BX trigger cost me something like $45 on sale.

Marlin model 60 average price 175.00, Ruger 10/22 average price 270.00 + 45 for the trigger and I bet it still wont group as tight as a 60.

Those aren't average prices around here. I paid $159 for my wife's (+$45 for the trigger). My target model was $200, but came with heavy hammer-forged barrel, adjustable target trigger and Hogue over-molded stock. I can only assume that guns are cheaper here than where you live.

Electric Miner, you look like one happy camper!!

It was a good day shooting with the wife and a buddy who may not be around that many more years.

Miner's Diner / Easy (easier) homemade pastrami
« on: May 12, 2019, 04:16:49 PM »
Seven pounds of homemade, thin-sliced pastrami, anyone.





Directions


-Get store bought corned beef brisket - this is what makes it easier. For the real thing, I cure my own corned beef as the first step.

-Get a container with a lid that will hold the corned beef and fit in your refrigerator.

-Open the corned beef and throw away everything but the meat. Rinse the meat well.

-Put the corned beef in the container and fill with cold water. Put in the refrigerator.

-Soak for 6 to 8 hours. pour out the water and refill with fresh water before returning to the refrigerator. The idea is to get rid of a lot of the salt in the commercial corned beef.

-After changing water a couple of times, start cutting a small bit off each time you drain the water and taste it. When it no longer tastes really salty, you are done soaking.

-Pat the brisket dry and place on a rack over a pan in the refrigerator overnight.

-The next day rub the brisket with cracked pepper and cracked coriander. put back in the refrigerator until the following day.

-Early in the morning, stoke up your smoker. Use either oak or maple for wood.

-Smoke as you would for any brisket - until tender. Wrapping when it hits the first stall will speed the time up and make for juicier pastrami.

-After smoking, put in tight sealing container and refrigerate at least over night before slicing. The thinner you slice it, the better.

Off-Topic Discussion / 10/22 BX trigger

For any of you who own a stock factory Ruger 10/22, I highly recommend the Ruger BX trigger. We put one in my wife's stock 10/22, and the difference is night and day. The trigger pull is about half what it was, it is smooth, and breaks like glass. Money well-spent.

My favorite flintlock. A Searles short-barreled fowler in 20 ga. It uses a Colerain barrel, and an L&R Queen Anne lock set.
