GOOOODDD Morning Sunshine!

He was canned because he didn’t like Black Rifles AR-15’s for hunting, so they canned him on Political Correctness!

This is the kind of BS” plays right into the Anti Gunners hands!!!

Divide and concur!

Just like the Crossbow debate in how stupid few got including Colorful Metaphors and Threats! Yet F&S let that go until a couple of us called the editor to pull the plug and the editor left it to sound wear Unsportsmen like. So who’s the Bravo Henry is it in the control room and that’s the one I would have canned!!!

Gooooddd Morning Mr. Cooper, I've been out of the loop for awhile I guess(not my fault, no access in the boonies). Because he did'nt LIKE the new "black" guns? I'd have thought it would have been the other way around. Now whats up with crossbows? I've used them in Ark(no restrictions). Now for the stupid question "are'nt we ALL hunter and need to stick together?"

Ya" I agree, people get riled up over nothing.

I could say some things about him, but I realize the other night watching Mr. Jim Zumbo on the Outdoors Chanel there are those can say something about me.
I don’t like shooting sticks, instead I use a Military 1 ¼ in sling NRA High Power kneeling and sitting style and shoot Jacks Rabbits, coyotes and all my Big Game out to 700 yards and some change.

Bottom line?

It’s the ability to shoot “MOP” at that range given and whether or not you use a 1 ¼ inch sling like I do, resting on a back pack or rock or tree limb or shooting sticks which I been giving everyone hell over using or anything else, If this is what it takes you to get you in the field

I SAY GO FOR IT!

Thanks for the thread 2Poppa, I just read it and IT MAKES ME SICK !!! I mean look at all Mr. Zumbo has done to SUPPORT gun rights,hunting,etc. then to be publicly attacked over a WORD !!! I've already severed my ties with OL(sad day) and think that maybe we should boycott Remington for their pathetic attempt at saving their own skins by attacking one of there most prominate spokesmen over a WORD.

OK that's the wrong idea. Remington makes guns. Good ones. So be nice to them. Zumbo too.

zumbo got canned for expressing an opinion. OL has no guts and those that created an uproar are the problem in our sport.

Sorry Shane, it just upsets me that they would do this to one of "us". I mean that would be like Wayne Piere(N.R.A.) kicking Charlton Heston out of the N.R.A. because he did't like what he said in "The Ten Commandments".

if the hunting community becomes more and more full of the comments with the thoughts of Mr. Zumbo's will only bring down the defensive walls that stop anti-hunters from damaging our world too much. We together must put an end to those comments in our thoughts before we post them and pull away more at the wall.

Zumbo is a good guy that made a mistake. I doubt if we ever hear from him again. Of course I stopped my OL subcription after the magazine went Metro years ago.
