  1. Thanks, but the idea is to take a Bearcat that I just bought, with a set of custom grips, back as close to original as I can
  2. A couple years ago, I had a local gun store pull out one of the double cases that these things come in and offer to sell me the one he had left. He had already sold the other one.
  3. I need a set of grips for the first series Ruger Bearcat I am only interested in the ones that are wood laminated onto a molded plastic backing Check to see what you have in the parts boxes Any help appreciated Mack
  4. Sawdust Joe stumbled into SASS on the Internet. He showed me the website and we goaded each other for three months until we were equipped and ready to shoot. We showed up at Buck Creek to shoot with CVV in Oct 2004. It was 31 degrees and 114 shooters showed up as I remember. Sawdust has passed on but I am still around
  5. This approach works well if you are not cross dominant like I am. My eye doc focused my right eye at the front site distance and made my dominant left eye slightly blurred at the same distance. Nature did the rest
  6. Can you put me and Lefty Lin down as well We missed the deadline last year and have really regretted it. I will get check in the mail tomorrow
  7. I shot 24" for 9 years. I seemed to be able to pick up the front sight more easily. I now shoot 20" and don't really notice the difference. Guess it was all in my head. I am not going to read this whole thread to see if this has been mentioned but; It has been pointed out to me that a 24" barrel comes with a longer fore end. Some people prefer the balance and grip of a 24" rifle shortened to 20" over a natural born 20"
  8. What gauge are the chokes? Kind of important
  9. I personally inspected this rig at the SW Regionals. If it fit me, it wouldn't still be here
  10. "The coach gun is Hopkins and Allen hammer gun - model 100 I think. What a tortured life it must have had. The forend is not really a forend. It's a chunk of wood pinned onto the forend lug, there is a chunk of wood missing from the wrist area. The buttplate is homemade out of plexiglass. The action latch spring is broken or missing. And obviously the barrels have been cut." I have a beautiful Parker 10ga with the forend replaced as you describe. I do not know how common this was, but I have had no luck with a replacement. Good luck to you.
  11. Been shooting BSS since 72. Started CAS 11 yrs ago with Rossi. Went through two Stoegers. Went to a BSS and will probably never change
  12. I am interested in your 73. I have a lightly used 73rifle (45) with 24' barrel. It has been my back up for 8 years and used very little over that time. The wood on this one has exceptional grain for an off the rack 73.

    It has had the action slicked, but no major mods. It has SS mag spring and follower.

    Not what you were looking for, but I also have a 73 in 45 with a 30" ...

  13. Send me an address and I'll send you a check.

  15. Joe Boy can be reached at 254 865 7503. Enjoyed shooting the practice match with you.

  17. Yeah, you smoked me as bad as I smoked you at Comin At Cha. If anybody ever asks me if I want to shoot through again, I will tell them I would rather hold the long range rifle targets.

  18. Where are you located and what is the local club you intend to shoot? I am in Hamilton and often shoot the Green Mountain Regulators match on the 4th weekend. Probably won't make it this week since I shot at Buck Creek last week.

  19. I was out of town and my BIL picked it up for me. I haven't seen it yet, but expect to this afternoon, My sister really liked it. Thanks a lot.

  20. Just noticed that we finished "fairly close" in the standings.

  21. Corrected I seem to have lost some of my comtacts, but I think you are the person I bought the Rolling Block from a whaile back. If so, I have a question, since I am new to this kind of shooting. You stated that the chamber had been cut to 45/90 length.

    What does that mean as far as reloading is concerned. Should I load just like 45/70; load 45/70 but seat to 45/90 length or use ...

  22. I seem to have lost some of my comtacts, but I think you are the person I bought the Rolling Block from a whaile back. If so, I have a question, since I am new to this kind of shooting. You stated that the chamber had been cut to 40090 length.

    What does that mean as far as reloading is concerned. Should I load just like 45/70; load 45/70 but seat to 45/90 length or use 45/90 cases?

  23. I have a lightly used Grabber(new model) that was showing some age from sitting out in the garage. Texita Draw took it for about six months and slicked it up pretty good. He loaded on it for a while, but I have it back now. I would take $225 for it. You can check the condition with Texita. He actually has more experience with it than I do.
