  1. Don't Keep the dirty old .38 WCF,,,,,, send it to me .... They are a nightmare to use, they take all the work out of cleaning ,,, are less easily crushed than .44-40 .... They have less variations in bore measurements ( .400 - .403 ) versus ( .424 - .429 ) They seem to shoot alright even from pitted bores ,,,,, Not Good .. They shoot slightly flatter and drift less in the wind out at 300 yards , and recoil less can't have that ... They are just not what you want ,,,,,,,,,,, But I love the caliber and will give it a good home.... Jabez Cowboy
  2. My old Felt hat has been getting wet both from Snow, Sleet and Rain and used to water my horse for about 40 years it is sun and weather faded but it don't seem to care .... I use a slicker fer me and a Black bag for the Cart ,,,,,, as for my guns they seem to live in Balistol ...... I shoot FCD , the guns need a wipe on the stock just before Staging them as they get rather slick when wet .... The guns need cleaning at end of shooting anyway ..... Hat condoms make me snicker ..... Jabez Cowboy

  4. Still using mine with-out an issue , they are Stoutly build guns , that go Bang every time you pull the trigger.... I have used mine for Cowboy full length for about 15 years with 4.3 CC of Goex 3F under 4.3 CC of shot ..... Or using Winchester " Heavy Target " target loads or the like if using smokeless .... Yes the hammer springs are heavy, but the trigger pulls are just fine and it isn't primer fussy .... Overall a very fine but Not fancy working Gun ..... I consider it a better gun than any of the Chinese made guns .... Mine out lasted it's first two owners and will out last me as well .... Jabez Cowboy

  9. I really like the much needed , heated end gate on the Ford 150 ,,, helps keep your hands warm when pushing .... Fuel Range on a F-150 ,,, the distance between repair shops .... Two "C" class Motor Coaches same trip both 22E models alternating lead the Ford burned $325 in fuel the Chevy $150..... Not much else needs to be said ... Jabez Cowboy

  13. Buy a Rifle in .40-65 ,,,, Run your .45-70 brass into your .40-65 resize die lift handle pull your newly formed .40-65 case out Champher the inside of the case neck ,Prime and drop-in powder and seat bullet .... .45-70 brass is just Cheaper brass for the .40-65 with the wrong head stamp,,,,, Or you can buy .40-65 Star-Line Brass .... As to rifles buy a Sharps that turns your Crank or fits your budget if you got to have a Sharps ..... OR,,,,, Buy a Highwall in .40-65 .... Faster Lock time and less movement than the huge and heavy side hammer slamming down .... I have used my .40-65 out passed 1,300 yards to good effect .... Jabez Cowboy

  16. I just got back from the SASS Canadian Nationals, only missed one since we started to have them ..... I would venture that less than 40% of Cowboy Shooters up here are SASS members... This is mostly due to them not shooting at SASS regulated matches and the Cost to belong .... You can Shoot the Alberta and B.C. ( think State shoots ) championship matches with-out belonging to SASS.... The cost of SASS affiliation for clubs is more than many clubs want to bear .... We had Cowboy Shooting before SASS ever came to Canada and many see little to NO benefit to joining SASS ... Most shooters have plenty of matches to shoot with-out doing SASS events ... Jabez Cowboy
