  1. Hi, What width are they?  Can you tell me who made them?

     

    NR

  2. I don't know if this is the proper place to post this, but I don't see anywhere to leave feedback about some of the great people I've dealt with here. I'm not a member yet, I'll fix that soon. But, I've bought several items on the Classified Wire to help me get started. I have had flawless dealings with Colorado Coffinmaker (thanks!), Bob Lee Swagger, JD Alan, Lost Vaquero, and Rattlesnake Slim. All shipped very quickly and I couldn't ask for the transactions to go any smoother. SASS has some great folks! Thank you! NR
  3. I've just got a pair of .36 cal BP guns back from a terrific gunsmith (thanks!) and was wondering if anyone can recommend a source for .36 cal conical lead projectiles? NR
  4. I was wondering because a friend has a reproduction .31 c&b pistol that he'll let me have cheap. I'm not speedy and don't come close to winning anything. So, speed wouldn't matter.
  5. I was wondering if .31 cal BP revolvers are legal for pocket pistol side matches. I've never seen one of these matches, so just wanted to know. NR

  7. I just acquired my first bottle-necked cartridge revolver, and the seller gave me some brass and some 140gr and 180gr bullets. So, naturally I'd like to load some. Black Powder loads are not a problem. But, I'd like to load some smokeless too. I have a little Red Dot, and some Clays, so I can use either. Can anyone e-mail me with their favorite pistol loads (if you use either of these powders), (I've looked up the mfg's load data on-line, but I'd like some cowboy-users input), to NeuseRivers@Yahoo.com Thanks NR
  8. We had milk delivered. Dang, I remember the milk box and them glass bottles. Bread and cookies got delivered. I remember catching a ride on the Entenmann's truck as he buzzed around the neighborhood. Soda got delivered. I remember our German Shepherd was out in the yard one day while the soda guy was delivering. Oops! Everybody knew everybody and looked out for each other. Ike was in the White House, Howdy Doody was on the TV, I had gotten the training wheels off my bicycle and all was right with the world! What did I know? I had my candy cigarettes so I was happy.
  9. Maybe one day when I grow up, this might be a problem for me. I don't come anywhere no where near running a gun as fast as it can go.
  10. The R&D Cylinder is a .45 I use regular .45 Colt cases and a load approximating my powder and ball load. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1973123201/howell-old-west-conversions-conversion-cylinder-45-caliber-ruger-old-army-black-powder-revolver-45-colt-long-colt-6-round
  11. Thanks! I checked like you said and mine has the roll pin, and falls outside that serial number range.
  12. I don't know how or why. I hear about people lucking into great deals now and then, but never me. Well, it finally happened! I've been looking for a compact carry gun. I have full size pistols, but a compact semi is what I wanted. After looking for awhile, I dropped into a local gun shop yesterday just window shopping. I was looking at their used and consignment stuff when I saw a Springfield XDS. The price tag said 225.00 I had to look twice, it still said 225.00 I asked one of the folks there about it, and he said the owner of the gun had just put it on consignment and wanted to move it. We took it out of the case, with their permission I cycled it, triggered, etc. inspected it closely. Dang! without firing it, I couldn't find anything wrong. I walked out with that little gem, straight to the range. Works perfectly. Who else has fallen into a rare great deal?? Merry Christmas! NR
  13. There is already a ".22 division" for younger shooters. I haven't seen any older shooters wanting to shoot .22s (I are one) and I'm thinking since I can't run with the big dogs, I might go for more noise and try Black Powder and a larger bore rifle. I'm in this game to relive my childhood fantasies of the Old West (real or not)!
