  1. Billy, the answer is yes, but I want to discuss the operation.  I want to be able to adjust the smoke density  and have a timer that I can program for 30 sec so I can produce smoke during a shooting string only.  I have found a couple of units that will allow me to do that.


    How long will it last before refilling the tank.   drop me a line at     prlucky299@aol.com    and we can discuss further...  THANKS...…..RT

  2. Bailey, Barlands and I bought some and cronographed against Clay Dot. Almost identical results.  Very fine powder and appears to burn cleaner than Clay Dot. Just started to use it, but so far happy with results.  We just finished loading up 1000 rounds to shoot over the next month or so indoors at the club.  So far so good.  Check back around Feb.

    How you doin with that knockoff 38 parts gun...……..RT

  3. Dee Mak...... I still have the grip frames and triggers and hammer sets for those guns. iF YOU WANT TO RESTORE THEM TO ORIGINAL i WOULD TRADE THEM BACK TO YOU FOR THE BISLEY PARTS.


    Just a thought. Maybe originals would sell better for you...Regards..RT

      Good to hear from you.  I'll definitely give that some thought.  Been struggling with my new knee.  I think the difference in the walk with the knee has given me a lot of lower back pain.  It's finally starting to get better.  I have good range of motion so I just need to get over the sore back.  Looking forward to seeing you in the spring.  Winter well.  God bless.

      Yup. My knee replacement caused some walking issue's. Had Planters Facitius show up on my god foot for awhile..  Better now.........Had some good results this year. My rehab took about 3 months with full range of motion after about 8 months, but not enough to affect the game.....Going to Winter RANGE THIS YEAR!!!


      Winter well my friend. Have wonder holidays......

  4. Hey dog, the reason I didn't jump on your gun was all I have is $1100. I don't want to offend so I'm continuing to look for one at that price point.  I enjoyed shooting with you at Fall Roundup. Maybe our trails will cross again. I'll be in Branson next week and Tennessee for their regional in Nov and Winter Range in Feb. Best of luck  Regards......Rootin Tootin

      Good shooting in your travels & thanks!


  5. Hey Jackaroo. I've been trying to help Painted Mohawk get a part. Jackrabbit Joe has one and I'm thinking based on your emails with Mohawk you two will hook up in July.  He hasn't had any luck contacting Mohawk.

    Thanks  RT

  6. Hey Mohawk. Had a chance to shoot with KC Woody a couple weeks ago. Great guy. He made a pistol shop on a side match, with a fixed site pistol, that was like the shot in the Magnificent 7 where the guy was riding over the ridge  and Colburn shot him.  GREAT SHOT!!!!  Guess you guys down under don't need rifles....


    Hope all is well with you..  Regards  RT

      Found a local club member who had one for sale. Thanks for responding.

  9. I sent info to the Facebook page as well.  My SASS #21707, live in Iowa, Midwest Region. Been a SASS member since 1998 and have been shooting Duelist since 1998. I would like to be a Pistolero. How do I qualify and sign up.  My good friend Ima Olcowhand told about this group and I sure would like to join.....



  10. I'm thinking of making a 7 1/2 Ruger Vaquero. I have a barrel from a new model Blackhawk that will fit an Old Model Vaquero but want a blade front site since it needs to be a Vaquero with a 7 1/2 barrel to be legal for SASS.

    Duece shoots 7 inchers that he built and thought I'd try and build one to see if there is any benefit over my 5 1/2's 

    That's  why the question. 



  11. Larsen, I've been reading about the expansion of classes into sub categories, provided the numbers exist.  Will you be offering Elderstatesman Duelist or Silver Senior Duelist at WR?. How many will you need if either is offered?  I am Currently signed up  for WR as a Senior Duelist, because at the time there was nothing more offered, but at age 71 could qualify for either Elderstatesman Duelist or Silver Senior Duelist, if offered.......and would be willing to make the switch...


    Your thoughts please.  Thank you  Rootin Tootin 21707

  12. Lottie, I have two pair of wood, checkered GF original Bisley Vaquero grips if you are still looking.... Sold the guns but kept the GF grips.

  13. Mohawk, I just sent this to Jackaroo.  Maybe he can help make the deal happen.  Jackrabbit Joe hasn't been able to contact you.

  15. Slick, about the Comancharo, is this a stock Comanchero with Cody links or did it get sent to Cody for the Codymatic?

    Also any interest in a trade for a "Virgin"  SKB 100 with inertia single trigger and 28 inch barrel?  Real nice wood.

      Not interested in selling outright just yet. 

    3. Slick McClade

      Slick McClade

      What kind of trade was you interested in?

    4. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin

      Slick, after your pm I started to think what I'd sell it for.  Seems the 12 ga are selling up to $1300 on GB what are you offering. I'm looking for a Carty/Spur Marlin in 357 Octagon 20 inch.........

  16. Southwest, this may be more than you want.....I have a Virgin SKB 100, with excellent bores, great wood and bluing, inertia single trigger, 28 inch barrel.. Never a cowboy gun with light use. I've been selling off my extra shotguns. First was a slicked up Stoger, then recently a slicked up CZ.  I don't need this Virgin to hunt and it's too perty to cut  and slick up. I already have 2 SKB's slicked up.  One by Johnny Meadows and one by Jimmy Spurs so I've decided to sell it...........


    I'll let this one go for $1135........... Can send pics if interested...........  prlucky299@aol.com

    1. SouthwestShooter


      Thanks for the offer.

      However the 1st thing I'd have to do would bring it to Johnny and spend about $300.00 to shorten the barrels, change to a mechanical trigger, and hone the tubes, and make it a "stay-open".


      So now it's a $1,500.00 gun.


      Thanks for the offer.


      What's the possibility of 1 of the 2 already slicked up SKB's?

    2. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin

      Sorry but those aren't for sale. Just an FYI I have that and more in each of them..... ......Good luck in your search

    3. SouthwestShooter


      Thanks, and happy trails to you also.

  17. Yes, I have 2 sets of Rosewood  Altimont Bisley grips for trade with some cash if interested, for trade for  gunfighter grips...….  



  18. Any interest in the parts or the entire Charles Dailey after you viewed the pics.

  19. Believe in GOD, Protect your FAMILY, and Respect your FELLOW MAN

  20. Charlie, do you still have the 73.........RT

  21. Cody, just a quick FYI (no disrespect) a 12 stage main match with a 4 stage mini match and speed rifle side match will exceed 200 rounds easy if you play a lot with the side matches........Just  saying.......RT

    1. CodyMaverick


      I thought you might mention that.  Since I usually clean all my guns thoroughly before a big match I like to shoot my main match guns for just one stage of the mini match or a couple of rounds of the speed side matches and then use my back up guns for the rest of it.

    2. Rootin Tootin

      Rootin Tootin

      Good idea about side matches and mini matches, regarding backup rifle.  If there is no fix then I'll just tear down and clean as required.  Thanks for the idea...........RT

    3. CodyMaverick


      Having given it some additional thought.  If your new rifle has a slightly larger chamber than your old one. You could experiment a bit with your load recipe using the new rifle and try to get a little more pressure to expand the case more.  Perhaps a little more powder or a different powder and/or the next heavier bullet in your caliber.


      I noticed one suggestion was to measure and compare the fired cases from each rifle.  Good idea, but if my guess is correct you'll find the diameters to be the same.


      I found out the hard way that my '92 has a much larger chamber than my '73 when I tried a suggestion of just neck sizing my brass.  The neck sized brass from my '92 was very hard to chamber in the '73, they would go in but took a lot more force.  Now I use a Redding Dual Sizing die and it works great.  Since I insist on shooting .45s, blowback and regular gun cleaning are just a way of life.  Good luck

  22. Do I need a 44 special pistol or can they be shot safely with a 44 magnum.. I picked up a 73 in 44 special and might want to do Classic Cowboy but don't have pistols yet. 

    1. G W Wade

      G W Wade

      You can shoot 44 specials all day long in 44 mag , RT.   Like I said it's the same as shooting 38 spec in 357 mag.  just the shorter cousin       Enjoy   and hope to see you and Charlie at Gunsmoke.   If you need anything else, just holler    GW

  23. do you still have the short stroke?

  24. Do you still have the SKB for sale........Saw it on the wire back in Feb.....  Thanks  RT
