  1. They certainly are addictive! My favourite is my .45-70 Pedersoli "Sharps" with a double set trigger, a tang sight and a Hadley Eyepiece.
  2. I keep looking for an old friend and neighbour, who was the head Gendarme at the Embassy here in Ottawa, Lawman. Stephane, if you're out there, say Howdy!
  3. My son and I spent some time with Sherron this morning. While she had discomfort and tired quickly, they had her up in a chair for a while. We spoke with the Doctor and came away feeling a little encouraged. The Doctor described how she has had major surgery, a kidney infection and is dealing with trouble swallowing as a result of a tiny stroke. Her (the Doctor's) prognosis was that Sherron's recovery would be slow due her age and all the trauma she has gone through of late, BUT that there would be more recovery than what we are currently seeing, albeit over a longer period of time. Ian and I are feeling a lot better about the situation at the moment. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for all your prayers and good wishes.
  4. I've spent some time trying to process the meeting I had with the Doctor, nurses, therapists and Social Workers at the hospital. It's been hard to take. Sherron is not responding well to therapy and the discovered she has had another tiny stroke, affecting her ability to swallow. This, coupled with her inability to get out of bed on her own, requiring a two person assist to get into a chair etc. leads them to tell me that she will not be returning home any time soon, if ever. Thank-you all for your prayers on our behalf.
  5. Could well be. I never paid a lot of attention to it. I just noticed it felt better and I liked it. My '73 doesn't have a saddle ring. Here are pictures of both of mine. Could well be.

  7. OUR Prime Minister. Pray for us and keep your fingers crossed: Our federal election is September 20th
  8. It's the barrel length. The 1866 Yellow Boy's barrel is 24 1/2", while the 1873's barrel is 20" I find the '73 less muzzle heavy.
  9. It's the typical Uberti red stain and laquer. I've been tempted to strip it, stain the wood and just oil it.
  10. Us Holy Catholics, (Anglicans/Church of England) never had a problem with a drink. Or two. Or Three. OH Heck! Just leave that bottle of Scotch right there!
  11. I went from the Uberti '66 rifle to a SASS short stroked '73 carbine. Lighter, not as muzzle heavy and the short stroking has spoiled me.
