    Awesome news! Glad to see there are still people with integtity.



    Spliefy- for some odd reason the image of you and reference to "Fluffy" in the same sentence is profoundly disturbing.

    Poor Fluffy..........................

    Here is a link to a video that explains the "fluffy" reference (because you know we are all so PC around here )

    That's fantastic news. I'm glad to see integrity is still loose in the world

    Discussion is an exchange of intelligence. Argument is an exchange of
    ignorance. Ever found a liberal that you can have a discussion with?

    I am so lucky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone turned a rifle into the Chaffee County Sheriff that night, and I spent all of yesterday driving out to the range and stressing. I finally got a call back from Ron with the Forest Service (helps operate the range), he informed me that someone turned a rifle into the Sheriff on duty Monday night. After contacting the Sheriff's Office I had to wait for the on-duty officer to get it out of the evidence locker when he went back on shift at 5pm.

    To clarify the situation, there were 3 of us shooting that day, all with a couple of rifles and handguns. I was the driver and when we were getting ready to leave, my buddy's said they would hump the gear up while packed the car. I even went as far as calling for one buddy to do an additional last once-through (like leaving a hotel room) and he assured me he did 2! It wasn't until we got back to Denver to unpack that it was not there.

    So I had a nice day hanging out in Salida waiting for the officer to go back on the night shift, and even hung out at the range with Offgrid and did some 1k shooting to pass the time. The officer got me real good, telling me that it was used in a shooting last night (pretty freaking funny cop), met up with him @ 5pm and got the rifle back. I even got him to give me the person who turned it in's contact info. I called and offered a reward, or something to show my gratitude but they refused.

    Moral of the story:

    1. Don't trust your friend or shooting partner do something that is your responsibility. It was my fault not theirs. I should have made damn sure everything was accounted for!

    2. Gun people / Mountain people are good people!

    3. Chaffee is awesome!


    PS: Uber, sorry for calling you names. It wasn't specifically aimed at you, as we have never met. I am a hockey player my whole life and call everyone fattie, douche, shitbag, cherrypicker, etc. I will try to be better on the board as name calling on the internet is pretty dumb.

    It is water under the bridge Del, no harm buddy. I took offense to it then, which was also stupid, again on the interwebz. I played sports my whole life as well, rugby all the way through college and internationally. Thank you for the apology though. Let's go shooting sometime and shoot some douche, shitbag, cherrypickin pieces of paper.

    Congrats. I must say though, I'm not surprised someone turned in the rifle. I have found over e years that the integrity level of the shooting community is higher than society as a whole. As I said in my earlier post, I know for a fact that rifle would have been back to you in a day or two if left at BLGC. Its funny, the non shooters I work with in sporting goods have all mentioned that the customers buying shooting related items and ammo seem to be better than the average walmart customers. I just wish other non shooters in our society could see this phenomenon first hand.
    Mom's comin' 'round to put it back the way it ought to be.

    Anyone that thinks war is good is ignorant. Anyone that thinks war isn't needed is stupid.

    Outstanding news!!!! A good testimonial to the notion that all of our guns cases/range bags/etc. should have your name and contact info in them somewhere. Most of us wouldn't want to do that, but it would damn sure help in an instance like this. I found a range bag at BLGC and never would have got it back to him if he hadn't had a business card in it.

    This story worked out perfect. He'll never leave another gun at the range again and didn't loose the rifle for the cost of the lesson.
