  1. If you want to try some real long range, come on up to Forsythe, Mt on Father's Day weekend for the Quigley match. Ranges from 350 yds to 805 yds. Lots of fun and great people.
  2. That's how I got my Ruger Blackhawk. It was in a gun store near my in-laws the previous owner got it for his son tto carry while hunting. That season the son got an elk, when dad got to him he was using the BH as a hammer with his knife to split the breastbone. This is a 3-screw BH with alloy grip frame. He had it loaded with 6 rounds and the hammer down on a cartridge. His dad quickly took it away and sold it. When I got it one grip panel was chipped and the frame had several gouges where it hit the knife back.
  3. Snowed last night, Saturday 100°. Nothing unusual for Montana.
  4. I'd say, "good, someone I might be able to beat".
  5. We have a Nevada City, Virginia City, Glasgow, Manhattan, Amsterdam, Belgrade, and Montana City.
  6. I started out muzzleloding back in 79 while stationed at NavCommSta Stockton, CA. Then shot down in San Diego, with the Adak Muzzleloaders, back to SD, then with the Bridger Mountainmen here in Bozeman, MT. Unfortunately, when I started Cowboy Shooting time and funds kept me from doing both, soI haven't been doing any muzzleloading for several years. I still have all my gear and my guns, a CVA mountain rifle and mountain pistol and a CVA double-barreled shotgun.
  7. I have a pistol that's 104 yrs old. It's a Colt New Service in .45 Colt. It's nowhere close to 95% but it shoots fine.
  8. The scene you referenced in the trailer was him drawing a flail.
  9. I have a pair of that type of mold, one for a .36 Navy and one for a .44 Army. They are for round ball and conical. The conical has a rebated base for constructing combustible cartridges, you glue the mouth of the cartridge to the rebated base. You can use them for molding bullets but they are not the easiest to use. They heat up very fast so you need to have something to protect your hands.
  10. I'll keep mine. I got it for my 13th birthday. It's the rifle I taught my daughter how to shoot. She now has one of her own that she got when her grandfather passed away.
  11. I've seen snow in every month of the year here in Montana. I've also seen it 60° at Christmas.
  12. Best loads for the 45-70 uses black powder. My cowboy plainsman load is 50g 2f and cream of wheat filler to the base of a 350g cast lead. My Quigley load is 65g of 2f under a 500g cast lead. I am shooting a Shiloh Sharps Business rifle.
  13. It helps to have boots with 17 inch shafts. I consider my Walker as a light artillery piece.
  14. My Scottish Dirk, with a Walker Colt for size comparison. I where it as a boot knife .
