Custom Ruger Mark III

Not too long ago I finally finished ordering the parts for my Custom Ruger Mark III.  A year ago I purchased a PacLite barrel because I wanted a threaded barrel for a Mark III.  My original plan was to purchase a stock Ruger and switch the barrel of the gun.  I came across a set of grips for the gun that would match my 10/22 so I decided I wanted them (...

How to find the best deal on a trash pump for a Gold Dredge.

For my pump i searched for at least a month.  I priced out options and Google searched everything.  I even tracked down the manufacturer that builds the pumps for keene.  I thought i was really on to something then, but they only sell to Keene so don’t worry with going that route.  I ended up buying a engine from Harbor Freight using a 20% of coupon.  Now to save a 3% on this percent on this purchase I used a website called Mr....

Bushnell Banner 6-18×50 review

I finally got around to posting about my Ruger 10/22 scope.   I ordered a Bushnell Banner Dusk & Dawn 6-18×50 scope because I already had one on my Marlin 17 and liked it really well.  The scope was clear, easy to see through and had kept its zero for a few years.  The scope came in, I mounted it up and shot it a few times then put it away.  I finally got back around to playing with it and noticed something was wrong.  I...

GoPro Shotgun Mount

A few weeks back I ordered a Go Pro shotgun mount so that I could film some dove hunting.  The mount was on backorder and it was expected to ship out 4 or 5 days before opening day of dove season.  Well it didn’t ship.  I decided I would take a look at building a mount to use in the time being.  I used solidworks to design a very simple sheet metal bracket and went to Tractor supply to see what they had in stock.  The only...

Misquito Traps

A while back I posted where I found how to construct a homemade mosquito trap.  Well I have recently moved to our family’s farm house and have found a significantly large population of mosquito.  There are many websites listed online that tell you how to construct one of these.  They are very simple to make and all you need is a 2 or 3 liter bottle, yeast, water and sugar.  Cut the top off the 3 liter bottle and insert the top of...

Ruger 10/22 Build

My Barrel finally came in so I was able to finish the assembly of my 10/22.  For anyone that is considering building a 10/22, it is very easy.  The list from my previous post does include every part needed to build a fully functional rifle (minus a scope and scope rings).  I was going to post a video of the assembly but there are plenty of them on youtube, and the pins I ordered are very tight in the receiver so I didn’t want to to take...

How to fix a split snowboard

For anybody that owns their own snowboard (or skis) you may find this handy.  If you ever hit a rock or stump your snowboard layers may separate.  If you carry this to a snowboard shop they will charge you over a $100 bucks to fix it.  I had this happen to me the first trip I took with a brand new board.  I studied up on how to fix it and made the repair and all was well.  Last year it happened again, so I took some pictures of fixing it...
