  1. Clothes. I need to give about half of what I have to a thrift store now.
  2. Both of mine started around 6 years old. The daughter quit being interested when she discovered boys. The son quit when he got a drivers license. Neither one has shown any interest since. I do have a couple of grandsons who may be interested. But they both live 2500 miles away.
  3. That's awesome! If one of my kids or grandkids showed any desire in shooting, i'd unbox mine.
  4. I have a 1953 Colt Police Positive that is new in box, unfired. I've had it about 25 years. I have a Ruger 50th Anniversary 22 pistol new in box, unfired. I have multiple copies of similar guns to both of them. Other than that, a lot of my guns are in danger of being traded if they don't get shot in 12 months or so. Very few of them ever reach that status.
  5. I have two 1911s with adjustable sights. A Colt Gold Cup and a Springfield Armory Loaded. After taking them out of the box, and setting them where I wanted the rounds to hit, I have never adjusted the sights again. I've had the Gold Cup over 25 years, and the Springfield about 12 or so. I have about 17 other 1911s that are pretty much stock, with a couple of exceptions. I have replaced front sights on several with fiber optics. Most notably, a Springfield EMP. Dang thing always shot low, so I measured the front sight and found out it was way too high. Ordered a Dawson Precision that was the appropriate height, and it's been an awesome shooter ever since.
  6. The three big names are Wilson Combat, Tripp Research and Chip McCormick. For Wild Bunch, they need to be the flat bottomed mags, without the bumper pad (except a leather one that can't exceed 1/4" in thickness). I've found that the Wilson 7 round flat bottom mags work great. https://wilsoncombat.com/magazine-1911-45-acp-full-size-7-round-920-series-black-oxide-finish.html They're in stock, and under $17 each.
  7. Iron sights only. Fixed sights on most of them. The ones that come with night sights stay as is until the sight fades out (usually about 8-10 years), then I replace them with fiber optic front sights.
  8. It was a top seller when I managed a gun store. Never had anyone complain about them.
  9. Consecutive serial numbers seem most desired by people who typically buy two identical guns, like us silly CAS shooters.
  10. I can name two that have become millionaires, mostly from Youtube channels. April Wilkerson and Derek Bieri. Quite sure there are considerably more.
  11. I keep all my dad jokes in a dad-a-base.
  12. Fur babies are family. I'm very sorry for your loss, grateful for your compassion, and have been in your shoes more than once.
  13. Deepest condolences to friends and family, and prayers offered.
  14. It's mixed brass. Mostly Winchester and Remington Peters. A few Frontier Cartridge. The rest consist of the following headstamps: S.A. Corp, Frontier, Hornady, Super Speed, WW Super, Remington UMC, PMC and Super X. Some may have been reloaded. It's brass picked up at shooting ranges and given to my by family members. I have 3 30-30s, but also have a bunch of factory ammo, so this is extra to me.
  15. Could have been that my acquaintance copied something he read. But he sure enough did it that way.
  16. Knew a cop who, in the days before security holsters were common, habitually carried a model 10 empty in his holster. He also carried a model 12 snub in his left front pocket, fully loaded. His plan was that if someone grabbed his model 10 from the holster (it did have a over the hammer strap), he was going to left hand draw the model 12 and give them all six. Nobody he knew thought it was a good plan, but for the 10 plus years he was in LE, that's what he did.
  17. The wife has Windows 11 on her new Dell. I am running Windows 10 on my going on 7 year old Acer. I don't seem to have as many issues as she does. And I do a lot more with documents than she does. Her computer is used for web surfing and photos, while I work with Word, Excel, and Adobe Acrobat quite a bit. Mine is slower on start up, but then again, it is 7 years old. I'm good with it lasting a few more years.
  18. Went by the local H-D dealership to pick up a couple of HOG tee shirts Sunday. They had this on the floor, and now I've got an urge that I need to stay away from...2021 Fatboy 114.
  19. +1 for the ridge vent. Really works well. And yes, buy 3 tab shingles and cut your own caps unless you just want to spend extra money. I've done tons of roofing jobs and repairs, years ago. Spent a half day on a roof yesterday replacing some damaged tin (it was a shed, not a residential roof). My knees are really telling me about it this morning.
