  1. You've got to remember that before Cowboy shooting drove the price up, those 12 gauge 97's were dumped in the $99 barrel at the gun store.  You're going to want to find a Cowboy shooter that really wants to shoot 16 gauge.

    You better update your Visa if you want into Texas from California.  We turn away most travelers from that state and make them stay in New Mexico.  Part of our border protection plan.......

    And if they offer you a free ride on a fancy bus, DO NOT GET ON THE BUS.  You'll end up dumped outside the V.P.'s house in Washington D.C. or worse yet, Chicago.

  3. Every few years, we get a really nasty ice storm that takes down the power lines.  We've got underground utilities and natural gas at the house, a small portable generator and a camper parked in the yard full of camping gear.  I've got a 40 gallon water heater full of fresh water so I don't bother storing water.

     

    Usually we only loose power for a few hours when somebody hits one of the power poles with their car.  I don't think I've ever even seen a snow blower in Georgia.  If it gets much below 20 degrees around here, they shut the schools down and run in circles screaming.

  4. I changed over to wet tumbling several years ago to try and reduce my lead levels.  It seems to be working.  I use the Frankford Arsenal wet tumbler with Dawn and lemonshine.  Brass comes out clean and shiny and my lead levels are still coming down.

    Tomorrow is the last day to get a vote on the stages and whether there will be flights or two posses per stage.   

     

    I'm on the fence about adding the two younger Burts so all five of us will be there.  It's spring break, so they're out of school.

     

    When there are five of you it gets expensive in terms of match fees, place to stay, and ammo!  Guess I need to get off the fence and decide while we can still get two more votes.

    The memories of all five of you shooting the match will last a lot longer than the pain of the match fees.  Enjoy it while it lasts.  They grow up so fast.

    Great stuff, if you need it.  The combined chamber checking and resizer is the best.   Keep one in  my cart since I shoot a double barrel.

     

    good luck, GJ

    That's what I use.  Works great.  I check every shell before it goes in my belt on the stage.  It has virtually eliminated sticking shells in my SxS.

    Not sure if it's a Montana law or just in my county, but police departments are not allowed to destroy guns. If they are legal, they have to be sold back to the public thru auctions. Only FFL holders can bid.

    That's the way it is in Georgia too. However, I can't see California or New Jersey selling those evil guns back into circulation.

  8. If you own your phone outright, Verizon has a good deal in the prepaid plans.  There seem to be a lot less fees and taxes using the prepaid plan for some reason.  I still get unlimited phone and text and 5 gigs of data for $25 per phone after you set it up with a credit card auto pay.  No contract.  The only catch is, they won't finance a phone on the prepaid plan.   You can upgrade to more data but I haven't found that I needed it.

  9. It's been my observation that as the criminal justice system breaks down, the level of 'street justice" increases.  This street justice refers to the level of violence used by not only law enforcement, but gangs, homeowners and general potential victims of criminal activity.  The District Attorney, Judge and politician who remove the penalties of committing crimes are directly responsible for escalating street justice.  Of course, the voting population in that area elect the DA, Judge and politician so ultimately, who is responsible?

  10. I built several guncarts before the design evolved into the photo below.  This guncart is made of oak so it is very dent resistant.  The box width is exactly the size of my butt so I have a place to sit down.  The single front leg and the two wheels make a triangle so it always sits squarely on the ground.  No rocking.  The rifle goes on one side and SxS goes on the other.  If I'm shooting Wild Bunch, the pump shotgun will go in the middle.  The middle compartment (pump) is made to fit shotgun shell boxes exactly.  The plow handles, upright and the box create a triangle, which is very strong and supported.  The holsters attached to the plow handles store the pistols between stages.  I've been using this gun cart for the past 16 years.  I've refinished it twice because the finish gets kind of grungy.  Lots of storage beneath the hinged lid.  That's where are the ammo and other stuff goes.  

     

    I've also got a Rugged Gear guncart but this one actually is easier to maneuver over rough terrain.  I've also got a place to sit down if I get the chance.

  11. I also suspect that these were torched by a police department somewhere.  Maybe cleaning out the evidence room.  Lots of agencies don't sell seized, recovered guns back to the public.  They get court orders to destroy them after they are no longer needed for court.
