    Lenzi Front rests

    Saw the biggest number of them in one place Saturday, 3 in a line among 4 Club Rimfire shooters. Thought it interesting that Club shooters would have Lenzi rests and rear bags and branny new 2500 rifles and no interested in shooting in sanctioned matches. I guess that may explain why it is often difficult to buy actions, stocks , barrels, etc most of the time. Those rests and bags are awesome, I must admit!

    Hey Pete. That is an interesting observation and then it made me wonder, How long have Lenzi rests been around?

    Out here on the left coast YOU CANNOT BUY A 2-WHEEL DRIVE PICKUP TRUCK!

    Back in the farm country where people need trucks, where people use trucks for work every day many of them are 2WD and only the rich kids have 4X4's but out here in the affluent non-farming country every poseur and his mother's brother's son has a big ol' yarked up truck

    that's never been used

    that's never been put into 4WD under a load

    The truck business is just like the gun business...... the market is driven by poseurs, people who wanna' LOOK good, not by actual performance

    when I needed a truck tow vehicle for a flatbed trailer, I had to go east (midwest) Chicago to find a 2wd with a tow package,
    so I flew out and drove it back!

    I have a 2WD pickup truck, have had 1 for years and years. Funny I had to order it, been stuck one time in 50 years, with a trailer attached. So you can tell me all you want about 4WD, but I ain't buying it. Have a friend who insist apound a 4WD with snow tires is the best thing since sliced bread. Well he may be right, but I don't know. What I have saved in lost money will more than pay me to tow every winter.

    I agree Bill

    4 WD trucks get stuck too. I've had both and much prefer a 2 WD. I have been out of the snow winters for 12 years so 2 WD is fine for me. I recently bought a nice 85 S 10 Chevy I am in the process of replacing sun eaten parts on and though it doesn't have a lot of power, it could be LS'ed relatively easily. This is a no rust, no body damage one that doesn't need much. Winter pastime for me. I've been into older trucks the past 10 years or so. Had an 86 C20 before this one. Sold it before I came down.

    My wife still talks about the time I drove up to a snow drift on Metcalf Road and that would be about 1.25 miles from home. Francis, you better not drive into that drift.....As long as I can keep it going, we won’t get stuck. Well, I walked home from there and got the tractor and the snow blade. That opened up the road so she could drive home as I plowed ahead of her. She still doesn’t understand that the key phrase was “As long as I can keep it going”. Now that was with a four wheel drive. Of course the drifted snow much of the way home from there was about three feet high. And now that I think of it, the tractor is only two wheel drive with the belly being higher than the snow.
    Now you take Bill Gammon, please take Bill Gammon. He lives near London, Ontario about 100 miles from here and they get real snow. But then they go for groceries on snowmobiles.

    My wife and I went

    bird hunting this past Saturday afternoon. we had to drive into a spot on an old logging road, perhaps 2.5 miles, with several hills. The 4wd got us in and out with no issues but a 2wd would not have unless it had chains on the rear and positraction. 2wd is fine for pavement and dry dirt roads, but you are on your own after that. Then again, tires can be an issue. Tread aggressiveness and width. Wide tires are great on sand but not so great on snow. Narrower tires of the same tread design cut through snow to the road surface much better. JMHO from lots of years of pounding the back country.
