  1. Can't usually do that- sleeves come out too thin, I suppose. Most 12 gauge sleeves are to 20 (or smaller).
  2. Numrich/Gun Parts Co. or Dixie Gun Works.
  3. The Bullet Hole is in Delaware County, Town of Andes, near the hamlet of Andes.

  4. Was going to reply, but realized you said WEST of Catskills, and in my mind (not a good place) I had pictured EAST, near me in Kingston. But I'll ask anyway- Where IS Bullet Hole? And I'll answer the original question anyway. When I first heard of SASS and cowboy shooting, I was a couple of years out of college, State U. of New York at Utica. Shortly thereafter, I saw a Jimmy Stewart movie, Night Passage, on TV. Audie Murphy played Jimmy's outlaw brother, the Utica Kid. Hey, I know where that is. When I got interested in SASS, I applied for that name. Nope, taken. Well, I lived in Red Hook, NY. How about Red Hook Kid? Mmmm, 38 y.o., not so much a kid. Red Hooker, like the CW General? OK, open to possible misinterpretation. Nah, all the guys I've met in this game are, well, "mature", they won't joke about it. Yeah. Well, after some initial ribbing, it was OK. A couple of years later, I found out that I had Native American ancestors. OK, that accounts for "Red". In honor of my father (and some other relatives) I made Red ex USN.
  5. As these historically-correct pants usually only have one back pocket, I had the cut-off bits saved and turned into the other pocket.
  6. "An armed society is a polite society." Science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein, quoting ...uh, some French philosophe.
  7. 'Long as I'm posting IMDB links for pretty girls...... http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000368/bio
  8. Michelle Carey :wub: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0137004/
  9. Hate to burst your bubble, but what you have is, indeed, a Belgian knock-off. Westley Richards guns are always signed just that way, "Westley Richards", in full, no "W." It has English proofs because it was sold in England. If no Belgian proofs, probably imported as parts and assembled in "Old Blighty". Pics of proof marks?
  10. Gus: The new Dixie Gun Works catalog, page 8, has a new book on the Burgess rifle, "The Burgess Long Range Rifle Model 1878" by Dale A. Olson, $19.95
