  1. New Hampshire has no State income tax on wages and earnings; it does tax interest and dividends. LL
  2. 2004 - Ruger Vaquero Birdshead, .357 - $450 ea. 2005 - Uberti 1860 Henry - Military version, in-the-white, .45 Colt - $1160 2005 - CZ Amarillo 12 G. SxS - $575 LL
  3. Kinda makes you swallow hard, seeing so many primers and rounds of ammo wasted.... LL
  4. Thanks to two pards I now have a bucket load of Schofield brass! Better service than Starline (who has none)! I love the Saloon! LL
  5. And the Atlantic Ocean is now across the street from me...... LL
  6. Well, I'm perplexed, but that's mainly because I have no idea what post this refers to.... LL
  7. What level of humidity is acceptable in a gun safe? LL
  8. I am intensely allergic to cats. If I touch a cat, and then touch my face, my eyes will swell shut. Just being in a house with cats will send me into a sneezing fit. My wife kissed me one night, after she had kissed her parents' cat; my lips swelled to the point that I could not drink without dribbling down my chin. Cats are cute; I just cannot be around them. As for the guy running the cat down; future serial killers often start down that road by torturing and killing defenseless animals. Folks like that ought to be put in a cage with a larger cat - like a tiger. Even up the odds. LL
  9. Bill: You are absolutely correct about the 66; my age is beginning to soften my grey cells. LL
  10. Bill: There were a limited number of so-called "transitional" model Henrys made, featuring a loading gate. They are uncommon, and probably more valuable than would be used as a prop. In all likelihood, you saw "Hollywood Henrys", which were 1873s (which have loading gates) with the forearms removed. LL
  11. I recently moved, and had to leave my reloading bench behind- too big and too heavy to move it. But I now have the opportunity to plan a new gun room, including a new reloading bench; so I have been roaming around web sites and old images I have collected of solid designs. At this point, it looks like I will pretty much duplicate my old bench (4 feet by 12 feet, 4 x 4 legs on the corners and at the mid-point, 2x8 framing under the top), and a double layer of 3/4 plywood, topped this time with Formica. I'm also going to add an L at a lower height, to allow for sit-down loading; as I get older, I need to take the weight off my knees and back, and want to use a rolling padded stool to allow me to move easily between presses and supplies. I also want to include a dedicated computer with an oversized wall-hung monitor, to make it easier to use You Tube, e-mail, and the Wire in the gun room. Which leads me to the need to post a new entry - I'm looking at vault doors, instead of buying a 2nd safe. I'll open a new post below. LL
  12. Forget guns; buy powder and primers! LL
  13. And I'm sure that there are now 750 workers in and around Springfield, one of the more economically depressed areas in MA, who have absolutely no idea where they are going to find an equivalent job. Not much carry over between gun machine shops and "green energy", and I don't know of any current proposals to build a kind of industry in the area that could absorb these folks. Come the next State legislature elections, I hope these folks remember who actually took their jobs away. But they probably won't. There will be ranting against the ravenous capitalists (that has started already, with claims in the paper today that S&W's decision was driven by greed) and finger pointing at the evil lords of death; but in the end, it will be forgotten by all except the families of the workers, who will see their bread earners reduced to minimum wage workers or the long-term unemployed. LL
  14. There is zero chance that anyone in MA would agree to give S&W anything. Of course, they might be negotiating with another state, and using TN as a stalking horse; but so far, it sounds like a reasoned decision to head to your neighborhood. LL
  15. The guys from American Pickers found one of those. LL
  16. Looking for .45 Schofield brass for reloading. New or slightly used OK. 100 - 500 cases. Gracias. LL
  17. Want your blood to boil? Read the front page Boston Globe story about this move, and then the comments at the end. The public opinions include: - S&W are merchants of death, pedaling weapons of mass murder; good riddance; - S&W cares about nothing except money; - S&W are liars; they are only moving to squeeze tax relief and payments out of Tennessee; - S&W guns, including AR 15s, have absolutely no legitimate uses other than murder; the state is justified to send them packing; - TN is infested with in-bred hillbillies, and deserves a gun company; - TN educational opportunities are limited to trailer park home schooling; - And on...and on...and on.....some of the most vicious, uninformed, spiteful fecal matter I have ever seen in print. I'm ashamed of my fellow citizens, and of the newspaper that chooses to print this tripe without informed rebuttal. LL
  18. My guess would be that S&W sees the revolver business as being at the bottom of the anti's agenda, and that breaking the move into pieces makes it easier to accomplish without extreme disruption. Just a guess. LL
  19. Sad; 170 years of manufacturing history forced out of the state by political correctness and virtue signaling. It is not enough for the MA politicians to ban the sale of ARs; now they want to ban their manufacture in MA, even if they cannot be sold here. What drives these loons? I don't blame S&W; they have held on longer than I expected. I do wish that they would close ALL of the S&W facilities in MA to maximize the hurt. LL
  20. When my Dad was 90, I took him to Gillette Stadium to see his first pro football game. We tailgated with friends in the parking lot, and then headed toward the seats. Per his usual habit, Dad was wearing his WWII Navy Veteran ballcap. He walked, with difficulty, with a cane, and had to stop frequently to rest. As we made our way through the crowd, we were repeatedly approached by folks who wanted to thank him for his service and wish him well. After the first 10 or 12, the tears were streaming down my face. I was overwhelmed by the kindness and appreciation of so many strangers. Young women and men wanted to know where he served and what ships he sailed on; they were uniformly stunned when he told them that he had been at Normandy on D-Day; for them, he was a living history lesson. When we reached the entrance to the stadium, we were separated from the crowd by stadium security, and led to a private elevator that served the luxury boxes; we did not have box seats tickets, but to save him the long walk up the winding ramps to the cheap seats, they treated him to this special access, seating us in some unused luxury seats. I was totally blown away by their courtesy and concern. After that day, you could not convince me that young people lacked an appreciation for the service and sacrifice of vets, or that the Patriots' staff was anything but patriotic. It was a day my Dad never forgot. People do remember. LL
  21. "The guy" speaking is Glen Frye; the term "girl singer" was common parlance at the time, with no negative connotation express or implied. I couldn't care less about her politics; I fell in love with her voice when she sang with the Stone Ponies, and her songs have touched my soul ever since. I feel sorry for anyone who shuts out a performer based upon his/her politics; they are missing out on so much for no good reason. LL
