  1. My shooting partner retired so I've switched gears and started shooting USPSA locally.
  2. While no longer my main match rifle, after a few repairs I used my '73, born in 1892, extensively for several years. It's in 38WCF and has a rough barrel but shoots straight.
  3. I've used a bunch of Pyrodex over the years with no I'll affects but I prefer real BP. My caveat is.............. I clean my guns right after every match and there isn't much humidity out west where I live.
  4. I'd stay on the ranch until I couldn't take care of it any longer then stay a bit longer.
  5. As a former LEO, I carried a Glock 22 on duty yet I carried S&W M&Ps off duty of various sizes. All carry pieces operate similarly as all are striker models with no external safeties. As such, there is no appreciable difference between the firearms when it's time to deploy them. On the odd chance I carry something different, there is a slight learning curve that a bit of practice overcomes.
  6. Many of the smiths around do not work on originals so beware. I run an original 38WCF born in 1892. I found new links and springs years ago but haven't seen links in a while. The springs all needed lightened but now it runs smoothly. Larsen has given you the best advice to get those plates off. You can use CLP to spray lube into the guts to keep things lubed. Have a great time with your grandpa's rifle.
  7. I put a finger over the chamber to plug it, spray 409 into the bore until it's full, wait a minute or so, dump it out, then run a couple of patches down the bore. Once dry, I run a bore butter patch into the bore to lube it.
  8. Longshot Logan was a hoot on the wire. Anyone remember the LL Sweep? 9 shots on steel, one in the dirt. I loved that sweep.
  9. Inmates in California are allowed to have medically necessary appliances like braces and crutches among other things. I imagine other states allow them too as an ADA accomodation. Yes, on occasion, they will use those appliances as a weapon on another inmate. They get charged with battery on an inmate with a weapon when that happens.
  10. I buy my gas checked bullets from Quality Cast bullets. My Lyman 46th Edition shows a range of 8.0-12.0grs of Unique so I'm a bit over that at 13 grs. I have also loaded it at 11.0 grs of Unique with good results.
  11. I shoot a 170gr gas checked pill with 13grs of Unique. It's a sweet shooting load for the old iron.
  12. Put me in behind LQ Jones on those barrels if they are fluid steel.
  13. Wow Yul, just wow! All that for potato salad . Another masterpiece.
  14. I've used a Lee double disk setup for years, right or wrong, without a problem.
  15. Ace of Hearts recommended Arlo Pro to me a year or so before he passed. Mine work very nicely.
  16. Chaparral uses the original design with the retractor as well.
  17. Most any shotgun powder would work nicely at SASS loading levels. Nowhere near as good as BP but keeps a guy shooting.
  18. Don't use a 12-point socket, only use a 6-point socket.
  19. Have fun up there TL. I enjoyed my time visiting with you at End of Track a few years back. Great range and great folks.
  20. I wouldn't mind trying a couple 1000 but I don't want 5K to experiment with. Good to know they are available though.
