  1. Nah, Classic Cowboy is cooler! If he’s already shooting 45’s duelist style it’s just a short hop to CC!
  2. I shoot Classic Cowboy category and I’m getting slower as my arthritic wrists age so I’ve pretty much decided that I need to start working on style points instead of time, hence the idea of the Henry. But after some research and talking to friends I’ve about decided on a pair of open tops instead of 58’s to go with the Henry and my hammer double. Now I just need to somehow come up with the dinero to make my dream a reality!
  3. Uhm, probably not. But one never knows what the future may hold...
  4. Yep, gamer, that’s me. I’m thinking about going from a pair of tuned Vaqueros and a full race 73 to a Henry and a pair of 58 Remingtons with conversion cylinders... sounds plumb gamey to me!
  5. Never mind, the fog cleared and I looked on PGWs website and got the answer...
  6. Does anyone know, will a short stroke kit for either a 66 or 73 work in a 1860 Henry, or would they need to be modified? Or does anyone make a short stroke kit for the 1860? Enquiring minds want to know... Thanks!
  7. I'd buy it if I could make payments... Back to the top...
  8. My wife has two dogs, both outside dogs (we live on a ranch), one Aussie and one Border Collie. Both were “inherited” from our son who would work on a ranch for a while somewhere, get a new pup, come home for a while then leave the pup when he went back to work because it wasn’t quite what he thought it would be. The Aussie’s name is Roxie but she’ll also come to her nickname, which is “Fat Dog”. Ever seen a 55 pound Aussie? The other dog started out as Oakley, which became Okie Dokie and is now Okie or Oak. Or Little Fat Dog because she’s smaller than Roxie.. She comes to any of those. They both start wagging when I call ‘em Doggerts. The reason they are both a bit on the robust side is that they get gravy on their feed store dog food every night...
  9. I shaved my mustache off many moons ago, kept the lip bare for a month or so then grew the 'stache back 'cause I really hate shavin' my upper lip! Hurts too much! Haven't shaved my upper lip since... My lovely bride doesn't seem to be taken with the waxed handlebars I'm sporting now, but I like it, and she's not complaining any more than usual, which actually ain't all that much...
  10. Nothin' weird about peanut butter and cheese. Add a little hot pepper jam and it becomes really good!
  11. Gonna shoot Classic with bp?

  12. I'm getting out the end of July this year at age 60 and with 32 1/2 years with the company. They froze our pensions at the end of 2015 , so I've just been waiting for 60 so I get full benefits. Saved up enough vacation that my last actual day at the plant will be June 21st, Lord willing. Then my wife can try to work me to death on the ranch... 😃
  13. Lots of cross draws in this part of the world. I shoot Classic Cowboy, shot cross draw for years, but went to double strongside/double duelist for Classic a year or so ago to lighten the load on my arthritis. Had to teach my left hand to get its act together. Still working on that part.
  14. You are a bargain shopper, Bob! Neat stuff there.
  15. Congratulations! I've got about six months until I join the ranks of the gainfully unemployed!
  16. I had plumb forgot what sorts of shenanigans Saloonatics can get up to at Christmas time! Smooshed the Saloon roof, but the tree does look nice there! Anybody got a string of lights and some ornaments?
