  1. Howdy Bill, IINM unless there are some custom features, the letter is only gonna verify that they are real, when they were made and what part of the country they were shipped to. IMHO repairing broken parts (replacing a spring..etc) to make them function will not make them any less authentic, and some original parts can be found. After you get your letter find a gunsmith that can fix em if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. And if in good shape shoot em ever now and again.....with real BP only ;) . Good Luck :)

  2. From what I found it ONLY matters if you are playing around at the bottom of the charge levels.


    IMHO now I just shoot mid range loads (800+ in the pistols and 1000+ in the rifle) and you don't have to worry about it......winter spring summer or fall.

    Yep, I started with Titegroup, and then to Clays when I took up shotshell loading also. IMHO Titegroup has a loud sharp report and more recoil for the same fps. Did a little testing and found light loads of Clays could be both temerature and position sensitive, just needed to bump 'em up to the mid range and they ran fine. Nothing effects my 2f and 3f ;) I've since gone to Red Dot for all my smokeless stuff. Good Luck :)

  3. Kinda like the difference between Corvair versus Corvette. .

    Yep, I always had to park my Corvair on a hill :huh: cause it may start and then again it may not :o:wacko: . The Stoeger may fire the first barrel, but for the second it may not. SKB is a world apart from the feel of a 2x6 Stoeger. IMHO the Baikal is a much better SXS on a budget, they all will need a little action work for this game/sport. I've heard of a few CZ shooters, another one that will need action work and cost a little more than the Baikal. Haven't heard alot about the one Cimarron has now, be interesting to know the cost plus action work compared to the Baikal or CZ, maybe some of our fine gunsmiths will chime in. Good Luck :)

    But the Very Best thing you can do is come on out to a shoot and try a gun or dozen , bring a box of 12 ga. AA target loads with you and I'm sure you won't have a problem finding guns to shoot them up in ...


    Talk to folks ,,,,,,, Listen ,,,,,,,,,,,, Try ,,,,,,,,,,,,, Before you BUY ...

    Howdy Scottcost and Welcome. What Jabez said....try before you buy. IMHO the Bakail is much better in that price range. But before you buy anything start going to as many local matches as you can find. Try out the different firearms, you may find a good buy, or may decide to buy one slicked up by one of our fine gunsmiths. Get ahold of the MD, they may be able to have some gear you can try. Don't rush, spend yer money wisely the first time. Good Luck :)

  5. Powder Inc usually has good prices.....I've been buying KIK there lately. Most the major suppliers have free shipping and hazmat for 25-50lbs. John Boy listed a fireworks place that had BP for a good price, maybe he'll chime in here. Good Luck :)

  6. Well there's a (you know) Joe that we still don't need to hear from :o:lol: I kinda miss "Reverand Say Yer Prayers" He could hold his own in a good debate.......and pert near argue with a fence post :huh: Heck, he even let the fence post win ever now and then :wacko::lol:

  7. Single vision for your dominant eye focused at front sight distance. Some Optometrists will let you bring your guns in.




    Yep, dominant eye on front sight, other eye regular script (with bifocal if needed). You can use a sharp pencil at arms length for focus. Luckily my eye doc was well versed at different shooting glasses and knew exactly what I needed, he used 32" from nose as a base, which is very close to where my pistol front sight would be. I went with transistion lenses, they work great. Add a set of B-52 side shields, I have 2 pair of tinted and 2 clear.....tinted is all I use. Good Luck :)

  8. None, I color code everything with different Sharpies on the bottom of the brass (after I checked for hi-primer) :D BP gets one black stripe, if the case is headed for splitsville it get two black dots (for pistol only) ;) Normal Red Dot gets a red and green stripe, hotter loads red only. Clays is blue. I put a small x on the bottom of shotshells, four or five Xs on an STS means they are now ready for BP, and those get a big X, which means they will be trashed. I pour all of my bullets so I can tell just by looking.what bullet it is. I also mark the batches of lead, randomly on the end of 1lb ingots, I run about a 10.5 for most of my CAS shooting. Good Luck :)
