  1. 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.
  2. +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.
  3. Properly adjusted with the appropriate riser, you should be able to use irons and dot at the same time. It's called "co-witness". The dot should appear just at the top of the front sight.
  4. Congratulations! My second oldest grandchild is in the Crucible at Marine Boot Camp today.
  5. I have 200 rounds of 30-30 brass for sale. I'm pretty sure most, if not all of it, is once fired. I have it divided into 2 100 round bags. Wet tumbled, but not deprimed or sized. Asking $35.00 per 100 rounds, or $60 for all 200. Shipping will be $11 USPS priority mail, and I can get all 200 shipped for that price. Please reply "I'll take it" here and send a PM for payment info.
  6. I've got one life. I've risked it numerous times to save total strangers. Cost isn't a factor in the decision.
  7. I love the 44 special, and carry it in one of several revolvers I have for CCW. I shoot 44 special a couple of times a year in a pair of original 44 magnum Ruger Vaqueros. I also have a Marlin 1894 in 44 magnum that feeds 44 specials quite well, but I don't shoot a lot because accuracy is sorely lacking with lead bullets and micro groove barrel.
  8. I know of several '97 wizards who slam fire. One never misses, most of the others do occasionally. One will typically have to fire at least one extra round per 4 target stage. When I run a '97, it's aimed fire only.
  9. Congrats on quitting. I was coerced into trying to quit several times. Until I decided to quit, it never took. Gum, patches, prescription meds; none of it worked. What finally worked was deciding for myself to quit. The urge to smoke lasted about three days, the need to have something in my hand every 20 minutes lasted a couple of weeks. At the time I quit, they were $3 a pack, and I was burning over $2,000 a year. That was 17 years ago.
  10. I had one die in front of me many years ago. Called in report of reckless driving. Clocked him at over 100. When the crash (single vehicle) was over, we found he was a wanted felon, with outstanding warrants for rape, armed robbery and kidnapping. The car was stolen, and loaded down with stolen goods from various store and storage building burglaries. Not every one I chased was that bad, but several were, including two escapees (different chases) from State Prisons.
  11. Nostalgically, 44 Winchester. Realistically, 45 Colt, only if it's in a gun that can handle Ruger level loads.
  12. Was it general hybotchery or explicit hybotchery? Might have to limit his exposure to sensitive competitors.
  13. Got a pair of Colts with ivory grips. Got lots of wheelguns with wood grips. Most of my autos have wood grips. A few don't. A Sig P229 with Hogue rubber grips, a LC9 that is so slim that it's unnoticeable under a tee shirt. I do own two Glocks...both are deep concealment house guns, and don't get carried. My workhorse 1911s mostly wear G10 grips, as do a couple of my revolvers. I do have several Colt revolvers that came with hard rubber grips, including a New Service from 1912, and a 1917 Police Positive Special.
  14. Got the book several years ago. Loved it. Will watch the movie.
  15. 44 Hand Ejector. Factory nickel, correct barrel length, grips serial numbered to the gun. S&W letter indicates it was shipped in 1940. Serial number indicates it was one of about the last 800 shipped before WWII brought a halt to production on the 44 Hand Ejector.
  16. “Jimmy passed away peacefully on the night of September 1st surrounded by his family, friends, music and dogs,” a statement posted to Buffett’s official website and social media pages said late Friday. “He lived his life like a song till the very last breath and will be missed beyond measure by so many.”
  17. +1 for Youtube. I recently found a channel of instrumental blues, called the blues lounge. I can spend hours with it playing in the background of whatever I'm doing.
