  1. ES, I run a pair of '58 Remingtons with Kirst 5-shot conversion cylinders (not into C&B) but they are easy to convert back, if you prefer. They work great, are very reliable and the cool factor when I pull the cylinders for loading/unloading is awesome! I run smokeless most of the time but have run BP cartridges through them. No special loads, just my Trailboss loaded .45 Colts
  2. I took those when I had back surgery... along with a muscle relaxer AND pain meds! I was a zombie! Never again. I'll hurt. I know this stuff works for some and more power to ya, not for me. I'll find the best boots I can.
  3. I can tell ya if I have a suspected squib in my '97, I'll drop a .45 off my belt through the ejection port and if it clears (loaded .45, wad, shot, whatever) falls out the end, I'd say it's clear; if nothing falls out, I ground it and move on. That oughta stir em up!
  4. Lots of ways you can go. My Rossi is an older model and works great (in .45 Colt). I'd save my pennies and move the heck out of Illinois! Born and raised there and I can hardly think of a more firearm-unfriendly state! Love to visit but not movin back. Best of luck to ya.
  5. Sorry PWB, I didn't want to rip the bandage off and start this all over again (hereby incurring the wrath of the Wolf), I just meant I didn't think it was just a simple thing.
  6. Well pardon my French, but there ARE some "friggin" caveats in this situation that have caused confusion; hence 5 pages of debate. It is not as simple as hit or miss.
  7. He's just restin' up so he can reign down hell fire on the unsuspecting Wire poster... Mwah ha ha... Glad yer doin well
  8. Definitely NOT "hobbyist" work! Amazing! Looks great!

  10. bgavin, The best advice I can give you is see, at the matches you attend, who is running fast, dependable guns and highly consider what they have. If price is not the issue, get what works; you will be much happier in the end. Marlins can be made to run very well, 73s and 66s are (mostly) run by the fastest. If they weren't reliable, those shooters would not use them. 92s can work good as well, but will not be as fast as a tuned 73/66 (did I say that?). Stoegers do work for a large number of shooters, but in my experience, fast guys use tuned SKBs for SxS. 97s can be run like lightning if ya practice. Vaqueros and Colts/Clones seem to be the choice for wheel guns. In the end, ya get out what ya put in; from $$ to 'smith work to upkeep to practice (yes, that). Happy Shooting!
  11. I use Clean Shot for 12 ga loads. 1oz #7.5 with 16 gr of Clean Shot for me 1 oz # 7.5 with 13 gr for kid (maybe a touch lighter than Win LRLN) Works great!
