    Why do people hunt snipes? I am not saying anything about the hunters of them i was just wondering what they were usd for and if snipes caused any damage. How much meat can youg et out of one? Do you eat them? Just curious

    I don't think they cause any damage, but they are a food source just like ducks,deer,etc.
    It would take a "mess" of them a make a meal like doves. I've never eaten on but I have a buddy in Lous. that hunts/eats them every year. Says they are good.

        Remember the thread Dave did last year about Westerns. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was the favorite if memory serves. Well here's a trivia question about the GB & U. What was the name on the grave that held the $200,000 in gold coins? Here's a little help. No cheating please. Was it

            Snipe a very small even a little smaller than a dove. They are all dark meat and taste much like a dove. Snipe are a very challenging bird to hit. A light load of number 8 shot is preferred.

              Del and Big O hit on the dot... the only thing I have to add is that they are hard as hell to find. You have to go into some deep cover to find them and hunt em. Good luck!

                Same size as woodcock, takes a bunch to make a meal. I don't care for either. Worm eaters- taste like dirt.

                            Like most everyone else, I buy a scope to feel a need. Only a few times have I taken advantage of a sale.

                            Do you buy a scope when it is on deep discount, then look for the perfect rifle to put it on ? Or, you have the rifle and it needs glass, justkeep looking...

                            Bubba, I've been curious too. This is our first and so far I like it during dry fire. We're going to see how it is at the range in a few days....

                            On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...

                            Good question. The old style Ruger LC9 has a very long trigger pull that's similar to that of a double action only revolver. I think it would be unlikely...
