  1. As a kid liver and onions, still a big nope.

    Mom would cook heart or tongue for her and dad, we got something else. We drew a line in the sand on those.

    Pickled Beets, no as a kid, now yum.

    Chorizo was a favorite of mine. Then I read the ingredients on a package at the market. Lymph nodes, salivary glands etc.  Then I remembered hotdogs are made from whatever is left over also. So Chorizo is back on the menu.

  2. The thing is, pot back in the 60's was pretty tame stuff when compared to the hybred stuff of today.  Todays stuff is so strong you only have to intake a very small bit to get whacked out....So I'm told.

  3. I've been selling off safe queens and others as I really can't get out any more. Eventually all but one will be gone. Remington single shot bolt action I got as an Xmas gift from my brother when I was 13.


    I also think the market for buyers is going to drastically decline as the boomers die off. So sell now while they still want them.

  4. As Hardpan shows there are a lot of the old Blues singers on YouTube. Nice to hear the ,music, but also nice to see them perform. I have software that downloads from Youtube and converts the video into an MP4 music file. That way I can create a library of tunes that are not available for purchase.


  5. Interesting how Cowboys think they need to know how the SASS business is run, how its organized, and what type of corporation they are.. But when you join the NRA as a "member" no one wonders how they're organized, how much people are getting paid, who owns what property.


    We are paying a 'fee' to be part of SASS. Nothing more, nothing less.


    And again for those of you who think Non-profit means they will be under the scrutiny of the people who pay for membership there is nothing requiring them to do so. The IRS is the only organization that has the ability to "look" into their business operations.


  6. The zipper thing has been banged around as in beating a dead horse. Someone, I think Allie Mo, researched it and found that zippers were patented some where in the 1870ish time frame. So zippers were around, along with button fly, laced, and loin cloth frontal coverage enclosures.



  7. yup load BP on mine. I made an aluminum cylinder for the powder tube. And use Dillon's powder drop system.

    And yes Dillon is the best. Either at sending free replacement parts or talking with you on the phone to solve a problem.


  8. I have the MVA Soule long range site. It's their tallest. I then purchased bases for each rifle I would use the site on.

    I have the hooded front site with a spirit level and the inserts can be changed out to whatever type you want. Post aperature etc..

    They make top quality sites. Get a soule, the windage readings are much better and easier to see.


  9. Sears used to also have a lifetime warranties on their batteries. They banked on most people selling their cars in lieu of keeping them My dad and brother hang onto vehicles forever. Kept the receipt and would go back and get a new one about every 3 years. Finally Sears dropped the warranty for life on batteries.


    25 years ago I bought a Sears/Craftsman air compressor for my garage. It finally wore out. I went back to Sears to buy another. As they were ringing it upI mentioned I was replacing one I had for 25 years. The sales clerk looked at me and said, 'this won't even come close to that'.


  10. 45-70 offers the most bullet combinations and the most number of vendors who cast and sell them. Unless you cast your own then it may not matter. You have brass, dies, bullets now so why add another caliber?


    Sights, sights , sights, you'll spend good money for good sights. I always recommend to buy the longest, long range site you can. The cost isn't much more. The if you go past 500 yards you're OK.


    Montana Vintage Arms, Buffalo Arms carry good sites. I also recommend a Soule Site. For me its better when dialing in windage corrections.


  11. I attended the SASS convention when it was in San Antonio and toured what is left of the Alamo. It gives you a different perspective on what happened.


    Phil Collins did own a bunch of certified Alamo relics. He has since donated them to the historical society.


    There also was a thing about Crocket being captured and taken to Mexico. It was based on some obscure sentence in a letter.


    G.I. Tarpicker is right. Who knows what was said or what actions actually happened. We do know the Texan's stood their ground and sacrificed their lives for the cause they believed in.
