  1. Bullets gone , only have Crimson Trace grip left. #3. Crimson Trace laser grips for a N-frame Smith & Wesson square-butt. These came on a S&W model 28 that I bought at a local gun shop. Being a wood kinda guy , I swapped them for a set of Hogues soon after. I have had them about a year ; so a few days ago I contacted Crimson Trace to get one of the tiny allen wrenches that is used to adjust the sight. The sent me two of the wrenches , two new batteries , and new grip screws. Good folks there. Anyway , I would like to sell the bullets for 40.00 for either group , or 75.00 for both. Postage paid. Would like to get 200.00 for the Crimson Trace grip. Also postage paid. Thanks for looking , Rex
  2. Me , too , but I really could do without repeats of the lame ones. Rex
  3. I was working on a drilling rig in West Texas. When the crew that relieved us got there , one of the guys said "Did you hear that Kennedy got Shot". One of our crew said , "No, tell it to us." We also thought it was the lead-in to a joke. When they told us it was for real , the shock was surreal. I was 21 years old. Rex
  4. I kinda liked Heaven's Gate , although some parts seemed dragged out more than needed. Rex
  5. Maybe I have just been lucky. Since my first Ruger single action in 1967 , I have probably owned about 40 or 50 different ones ,and have not had that happen. Yet. Rex
  6. I have a question from reading some of the replies here. Sorry to interrupt on your thread Captain Bill Burt. Anyway , how could a base pin be in too far and interfere with the hammer if it is latched in place, same as it has always been in the past ?? Curious , Rex
  7. If Lonesome Dove is considered a movie , it's my pick. If not , it will be The Searchers. Rex
  8. The piece I was wanting sold. So my stuff is no longer for sale. Rex
  9. There is one on page 2 right now. Ad title says "American Arms by Uberti 1873." Also lists a Colt SAA. FYI only , I don't know the pard selling. Rex
  10. The grip I have on my Airweight is one finger-groove longer than Major's. The little rubber factory grip was useless to me. It still packs without printing. And I agree with the responders who say shoot it a while before changing springs. It might not need it. Rex
  11. I have the "want" just not the wherewithal. It is not a sin to be poor , but it is damned inconvenient. Free bump , Rex
  12. I have been to gun shows off and on( pretty regularly in 80s , 90s 2000s up until 2019, here in Utah , in West Texas , and 4-corners area , depending where I was living at the time , and haven't ever seen very many "good deals". I kept going anyway , just enjoyed the browsing. Have seen the same items on dealers tables over several shows , they must enjoy just hauling them around. Gun Show is about the worst place to look for a reasonable priced firearm. Once in a while one can be bought reasonable off Gun Broker , but you have to spend a lot of time looking to find them. Local gunshop or Sporting goods chain stores are usually a better bet. Sometimes a Pawn shop will surprise you with a decent deal. Good luck in your search , Rex
  13. We have a beef-barley soup several times in Fall/Winter , made with hamburger also. When I read the title of this thread I was picturing my entire place covered in Cottonwood leaves. After last night's wind and rain , it is. Along with a good shedding by the Willows. Rex , who will soon be raking and sacking.
  14. This is just my opinion , but tucked needs taller tops. Doesn't look too hot on ropers. Unless you are keeping your pants out of mud. Rex
  15. The novel by Alan Geoffrion is a good read , also. Side note: Near the end of the movie , when Tom shoots a bad guy with his 66 , did you notice it has no front sight. Of course , I immediately pointed this out to my wife , who was not amused. Or impressed. Rex
  16. Some years back , 2016 or 2017 , at the Texas State Championship match , I broke the rear sight blade off my 73 when I laid it down on the first stage. Ended up shooting the match clean. I think 12 stages , not sure. In this game the front sight is critical. Rex
  17. I think you will be happy if you go that way. I haven't used my vibratory cleaner in years. Have been plenty satisfied with rotary tumbler and ceramic media since about 1992 or 1993. Rex
  18. Sold all my 44 Russian brass , going with all 44 Special now. No longer need this set. Does not come with shellholder , and I haven't a spare to add. Asking 75.00 , shipped CONUS. If that seems a bit steep for dies , they are 87.00 at Midway , plus shipping , and none available. Thanks for looking , Rex
  19. Antifreeze or Anti seize ?? Just curious , Rex , who doesn't have any cap guns.
  20. Yeah , looks like they all changed into blue outfits for the actual ride. That was good planning.
  21. Is it just me , or does that one lady look a little like Jamie Farr dressed in 1918 style?? Shades of "Klinger" Rex
  22. Me , too , and have watched most of them tap the butt of their sixgun on the table if the empty didn't fall right out. Rex
