  1. Past hour
  2. Buckles for the top 5 in each category. Also each shooters pack will have goodies from sponsors and each NC cowboy club
  3. Today
  4. With the internet, business models can change overnight. Companies that can’t adapt quickly will die.
  5. If it is an internal mod only; did they have to approve it?
  6. The lever and lifter springs are under considerable tension from the springs. They often strip before they release. Usually, if you CAREFULLY place a wide screwdriver under the spring and a second narrower screwdriver inside the spring near the lever articulation point, then twist the lower driver to GENTLY raise the spring clear of the articulation, then twist the smaller driver to pivot the spring toward the outside, (off the lever articulation point), the screw can then usually be easily removed. Do NOT just slide the tensioned spring off the articulation point, or you will round the sharp edges needed to hold the spring in place. Always lift it off with the lower (wide) screwdriver. After initial adjustment, I very seldom move the adjusting screws. To disassemble the action, I simply GENTLY, as above, release the springs, and replace them in the same manner, with two screwdrivers. ALWAYS put a dab of grease on the articulation surfaces of both springs. Replacement hardened screws are available from Taylor's. They are not inexpensive. Even these can strip, if you try to back them out with the spring tension applied. Hope this is clear enough to be helpful. If needed, I could post a photo of how to position the screwdrivers. Don't be overly forceful. Use just enough torque on the screwdrivers to lift and disconnect the springs.
  7. .... I still can’t believe the ROC approved it.
  8. In all fairness - a lot of "solutions" are. Most challenges could be readily handled by someone with enough skill, talent and practice. But... In most cases; the driver is benefited by adding anti lock brakes or traction control to their car. In most cases; the accountant is benefited by the presence of a calculator or Excel sheet. In most cases; the carpenter is benefited by power tools and pneumatic hammer. I'm sure at some point - the designers at Winchester were debating the need for a lever safety while updating the 1866 design. After all; if the shooter would just do his job - there's no need for one. Stinking hardware solutions. But ultimately if the software benefits from the hardware - where's the harm?
  9. Wayne, same guy, in his defense the shirt is Green and they are sun shining on shirt. Happy trails Mike
  10. I still stand behind them both!! Also hafta' say that the Second Amendment Foundation does important work as well!! Probably the most litigious of the three, SAF has filed more lawsuits and won more cases than anyone else in our corner!! They go to war in the courts, all the way down to municipal courts on behalf of the gun owners!! They deserve far more recognition than they EVER receive!! I proudly belong to all three!!
  11. A hardware solution to a software problem.
  12. Maybe next year!! I sold some parts off of it to finance some newer, better pieces and the new stuff hasn't gotten here yet. 'Sides! I'm pulling the trailer for the band next weekend so's we have guitars and amplifiers and stuff for the show Friday night! Naw!! I reckon I'll hafta' use the Buick!!
  13. You should fire your photographer - is this the same guy that turned your green shirt blue? Good luck with your sale! ww
  14. I agree with MizPete, Knucky! Just go with the flow pard! You are Washington’s Champion. I’ll see ya next weekend and we can duke it out on the range.
  15. I have these 4 Damascus knives I'm selling. I started collecting knives back about 2 years ago and SASS needs have taken over... I paid between $100 and $150 for each of them, my loss is your gain! $75 each shipped.
  16. Roop County Days was preceded by the Nevada State Wild Bunch Championship. What a great week of shooting and hanging out with old, and new, friends. This was my first time to Roop. I was obligated to complete a mission. Glad I did it. Had a great time and look forward to next year, if I am not blackballed! NN
  17. Just got back from the Nevada State Wild Bunch match and Roop County Days in Fernley, Nevada. Great time in the North. Eldorado is only 17 days away! Don't forget to bring the 1911, large caliber rifle and a one hole shotgun. The Wild Bunch side match (4 stages) will start at 1 pm on Thursday, October 3, 2019. Round count: Pistol 98 Rifle 21 Shotgun 18 Since there will be a Cowboy side match at 9 am AND 1 pm, bring plenty of ammunition and do both! NN
  18. We already are and have been for many years. I'd also like to point out that we haven't fought a "war", much less won one, since 1945. If we do go in we should go to win or stay the hell out of it other than to provide support.
  19. No gem stones. He mentioned that, too, but all I have is a hematite intaglio ring that belonged to my dad, and some ivory. So far, so good.
  20. That didn't take long. Congratulations on the drawing at Return of the Buffalo!
