  1. First gun - 1958 a Winchester single shot .22 birthday present from my Dad. I can still picture the $14.95 price on the box. Three years later we attended an auction & he bought me a used Remington 121 .22 with a fitted hard leather case for $23. Still have the Remington. Had to pass the Winchester on to my brother. A box of .22 Shorts cost $0.50 & the hardware store owner would sell them direct to me. First bought in 1976 - a Colt New Frontier (all steel) .22/.22 mag for $75. Still have it & the guy who sold it to me says he will double my money any time I want to sell it.
  2. Hi Two Ponies. I have your address, but sent you a PM with a payment request. Haven't heard back yet. Let me know, please, so I can send the gold. Thanks, Zeb
  3. I'll take it. PM me for where to send the silver.
  4. Atta boy, Vic! Well deserved. Good job. Hope all goes well for you & Kat.
  5. I'll take the lot. PM me with the specifics, please. Zeb
  6. Or a High Wall, or a Rolling Block, or a CPA Stevens.... And then a rifle caliber lever repeater & a pistol caliber set up for long range. There is no end to the fun!
  7. Buffalo Arms shows the 3 1/2" Sheriffs model (with ejector) in .45 Colt in stock. Out of .38s & 44-40s.
  8. I'll take the Resistol hat for $65 & the pants for $25 if they are too short for Driftwood Dan. Reply with info on where to send the gold. Thanks. Zeb. Oops, too late on the pants. I will take the hat, though
  9. I solved a recurring mag tube rust problem by re-bluing the inside of the tube. I thoroughly cleaned and polished the inside with brass chore boy scrubbers & Hoppes #9 to remove all rust. Then I washed with hot soapy water & rinsed with very hot water. After complete drying, I made half a dozen applications of cold blue. I didn't bother to polish between bluing application as I didn't care if the blue was shiny on the inside of the mag tube. That & stainless spring & follower has deterred any rust. I also clean periodically & for sure after loading damp ammo on a wet shooting day.
  10. The give-and-take between Chester & Doc especially, but sometimes with Matt or Kitty, in the older half hour B&W Gunsmoke shows is the greatest. They always had a sharp remark or little dig for the other. Not PC, but good natured kidding. Real similar to what goes on at our cowboy shoots. Makes life fun.
  11. I've used a canvas belt to carry my 1860 RM conversions in slim jim holsters & shotgun shell slide for 5+ years. It has held its shape well, no tilting, sagging or rolling. One real advantage is it flexes when you bend over. I believe I bought it & the holsters from Buffalo Arms.
  12. And I suppose you are sending the leftovers my way.
  13. Hi Brisco, Don't know what happened. Here's what I thought I sent yesterday morn. Also, I like the $198, but I think your price for ten boxes was $285. So plus the $23.40 = $308.40. Let me know if I'm on the right track. I'll be away from PO & only have smart phone til Monday. With your price conformation, I'll post a check then. Steven Whittet 219 E 3rd St. PO Box 220 Redwood Falls MN 56283 507/430-6536 Hi Brisco, This is my work address. Delivery is more convenient here than at my farm place. I'd be happy to do the money order, but if you would accept a personal check, I won't mind waiting for you to ship until you are confident the check has cleared. I'm in no rush to have the bullets. It's a long winter on the tundra here in southwest MN, though not as long as you at Eagle River WI, so plenty of reloading time. At least you have trees, lakes, ice fishing & snowmobiling. I've shot CAS since 2001 & got interested in long range around 2004. I've never been to the big long range matches (bucket list), but enjoy the side match contests at state & regional shoots & have attended the matches at Harris MN. I also host six long range matches at my farm April thru Sept. We shoot steel out to 800 yards. I'll load these bullets for 45-90. I'm shooting that rifle less since I bought a 40-65 last winter. That's a sweet shooting cartridge. Stay warm, Zeb
