  1. I found a Beretta SxS at Cabelas (go figure) for less than $400 after they applied all of their sales and discounts. Goatneck Clem worked his magic and turned it into a great shotgun. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you much about it. Beretta said it was made in the early 60s for the European market. There is no corresponding US model. Their best guess is that it was sold to the military PX system and a serviceman bought it and brought it to the US. So, there are good guns out there that aren’t that popular or well known.
  2. Hmm, I bought an Uberti Henry when I first started cowboy shooting for $800 nib. With these prices it looks less like a tool and more like an investment.
  3. My brother shot a 45-110. It wrecked his shoulder. The orthopedic surgeon told him the shoulder repair was a one time deal. It couldn’t be repaired again.
  4. Buy another 1911 and shoot Wild Bunch. You never know when your main match gun will break.
  5. I worked for a company that sponsored several timber carnivals a year. It also employed the reigning “hot saw” champion. The participants who consistently won were all in the business. They didn’t just show up and compete, they went back to the woods and went to work doing pretty much the same thing that they had competed on the weekend. The competition was a family event. Everyone mingled. It was far more than a competition. it could be fun but the “reality tv” aspect may kill the camaraderie.
  6. As an old IT guy I can say stuff happens.
  7. Buffalo Arms is one possibility for these old cartridges.
  8. Before I retired I was on some professional forums that were moderated. It was NOT a democracy! You submitted your post which went to the moderator who decided if the post was an appropriate subject for the forum, if it was, was it weighty enough content to be posted and was it presented in a literate manner. Folks might ask, “Why put up with that bs?”. Short answer, no other forums fulfilled our professional needs. SASS moderators are easy. Be grateful.
  9. I shoot a monthly steel challenge-type match. It required a center fire firearm to compete. During one of the many ammo shortages the rules were changed to allow .22 rimfire, with the caveat that only center fire shooters could win or place in a match. Add a few years and rimfire overwhelms the matches. Rule change again, rimfire competes with center fire, any gun can win or place. Over time I have mostly migrated to rimfire. The equipment is good and the after market flooded with kits to make your gun even faster. Heck, with my worked over Ruger 10/22, I can sometimes crack
  10. How about you put the car in the cart?
  11. Well, you got a lot of responses. Was your fundamental question answered?
  12. It comes down to training time and the number of rounds required to maintain proficiency. A .45 just requires more trigger time for initial qualification and to maintain proficiency. Probably need to throw in compatibility with our allies.
  13. I haven't seen mine in more than 15 years. I have never been ask for it either.
