  1. Glad to hear the deal worked out... no surprise, as two quality people involved!
  2. These days that is a real good price for a new Colt. Many dealers are asking $2200 to $2500.
  3. If you are going to physically be in Colorado when you do the deal, any local dealer should be able to handle the transaction.
  4. When dealing with health related issues, most match directors will make every effort to accommodate your needs.
  5. I once asked Cobra Cat about that. He said the belt is "really tight!"
  6. By SASS standards that is a VERY stout load - actually about equivalent to original factory loads. Even black powder shooters seldom load to that level. It is also an excellent load to shoot any time. As you can see, just about everybody here shoots and recommends lighter loads. You have to shoot what is right for you. My wife and I also shoot stout 45 Colt loads and for years everyone used to tell us how we could do better with lighter loads. They know us now and realize we do what we do because it makes us smile and have fun. Do what YOU enjoy...
  7. I'm gonna call a second miss on this one. The rifle kd wasn't there because the shooter knocked it down when he shot the wrong target. Therefore the "missing" target was caused by the shooters own actions. There was no target failure. And yes, self inflicted wounds are the most painful.
  8. The whippings will continue until morale improves.
  9. Look into Coon Creek outfitters. They should be able to supply everything you need.
  10. I live about 10 minutes from Magma and I will be at Winter Range working in the stat house. Let me know what you need and we'll make it happen.
  11. Burris builds some very clear scopes at very reasonable prices.
  12. Texas John Slaughter made 'em do what they oughter, 'cause if they didn't they died.
  13. Congratulations - hope it works as well for you as it has for me.
  14. Trailfider is a leather maker and knows his stuff. His advice is worth $$$.
  15. Eight years ago Colt was not making New Frontiers. The original run of 3rd generation New Frontiers was built in the late 70s and early 80s. Some of them are very sweet, some are a bit rough. The only way to know is to handle the gun and work the action. The New Frontier was reintroduced about four years ago and these are very sweet. The 70s/80s have a NF suffix and non-removable cylinder bushing. The new ones have an NF prefix and the removable bushing. I have both and like them both. Price wise New Frontiers are almost always less expensive than regular SAAs. The way Colt prices are these days, if you can find one under $1500 it is likely a good deal.
