Congratulations, that's a serious camera. You're pictures are awesome to begin with so I can only imagine what you'll be showing us once you have the D7200 dialed in.

I almost stepped on a timber rattler last year on Tongue Mtn. Came within one step (2') before it rattled. I wasn't happy because I got much closer than I expected. Had I been distracted by a jet,...

I don't have a dog in this fight but I would encourage you to actually shoot all of these calibers in both revolver and semi-automatic platforms, if available ( 454 Casull is not). Only then can you...

You're a bit presumptuous thinking that you will have two or even three shots. IMO, you'd be better served planning for only one and be thankful you had a second.

Where on earth did you come up...

The ballistics are similar but I would argue the terminal ballistics weigh in favor of the 10mm. The .357 bullet has a diameter .358 bullet while the 10mm is .400. The 10mm punches a bigger hole...

I never suggested a 45acp over a 357 magnum. Neither would be my solution for a woods gun. I think both are underpowered.

I would feel a tad underpowered with the 357 magnum.

An excellent woods gun is 10mm semi such as a Glock 40MOS (long slide) or Glock 20. I have the former and you can load it with 220gr flat-nose,...

I don't know what your particular financial situation is nor do I care. Some of us are paying a TON of NYS income taxes which is supposed to fund state operations. These taxes are fiduciary money and...

The solution is always more financial burden on the average Joe. How about renegotiating the lucrative benefits packages of the rangers?

Boots that are really warm aren't easy to hike in and those that are easy to hike in aren't warm. What distance do you plan to hike in for the overnight/weekend? I prefer a boot that has a removable...

Cheap jeans being 100% cotton could get into trouble too on a cold, rainy day in the backcountry.

I'd call it an expense rather an investment. It's curious how things that we're told are "investments" always yield deficits and debt.

There's nothing keeping private citizens from taking their...

I think the program is utterly ridiculous. How did people get along before this? Don't they know of anyone who has camping equipment? Can't they borrow it from a friend? How about renting equipment?...

At least with my phone, the battery drains very...
