    The best reads about the Benoit’s are in Bryce Towsley’s books Benoit Bucks and Big Bucks The Benoit Way. Just my opinion.

    First week of the 2019 Maine rifle season.

    What can one say other than congrats to you & your buddies. You can’t put a price on those longtime friendships. Your 81 year old friend is making me feel a little lazy but at the same time he’s stoking the fire in myself and I’m betting in others too. Thanks for sharing the story.

    Sling Options

    Do you prefer a sling on your rifle? If yes what type, leather, nylon, cobra style, padded, custom made etc. Also does anyone have experience with a Rhodesian style sling, it can also be used to steady your arms with an off hand shot.

    Scope Mount: One or Two Piece ?

    I'm new to rifle scopes, rings & mounts and have a question. What are the good & bad points on one piece versus two piece scope mounts? The rifle in question is a Reminton 7600 in .270 caliber. It's not an ultra long rang gun just a hunting rifle. Thanks.

    Rookie Question: Slide Latch

    I just purchased a 7600 in .270 caliber. It's a pawn shop specimen that has issues, mostly cosmetic but I have yet to shoot it. So far just gave it a good cleaning. It will most likely become a project rifle and as this type of rifle is new to me I'm working through some questions. I was...
