  1. Branchwater is a real nice guy! He is humble and always willing to help. Oh ya, he is also an excellent gunfighter.
  2. This exact thing happened to me 2 years ago during a match! In my case, the round fired and then the primer came out. It locked up my rifle like a bank vault. No one in our posse had seen anything like that before. I must admit, I reload brass until it splits. Some of my older brass was developing loose primer pockets. Now when I reload on my Dillon 650, I pay attention to the amount pressure I need to seat a primer. If I don't feel a little resistance, I don't finish loading that round. Because I'm cheap, and primers are scarce, I do carefully de-prime the cases and save the primers.
  3. I was shooting Rugers when I switched to double duelist and then, eventually, gunfighter. I didn't have much of a problem with my off hand because I had already installed Super Blackhawk hammers (lower than stock Vaquero hammers) and lighter springs. Later on, I also had my pistols short stroked. My wife, however, had a tougher time of it learning gunfighter. Her left hand was much weaker. First we had her pistols short stroked and lower hammers installed. The second step was for her to do daily dry firing, especially with her off hand. The last step was to purchase the device listed below to help strengthen her left hand. This device really did help.

  4. I'm sorry that you're dealing with a jerk. In my 45 years as a teacher and administrator I dealt with many similar people in positions of power. In a number of cases, I had the good fortune to watch Karma finally catch up with them. Hang in there! With a little perseverance you can outlast this dirt bag.
  5. Do you have the opportunity to meet personally with the chief and discuss the problems you've been plagued with this year? He may have just looked at a spread sheet total without knowing what's really going on. I hope you get this issue resolved.
  6. Way to represent! We're all very proud of you.
  7. I just checked their website. They state that they do have wood available for Japanese SKBs. They don't list the parts specifically, but if you contact them, they should be able to help you.
  8. What McCandless said. They are good folks and have helped me with several SKB parts. Check the link below. Homepage | SKB Shotguns
  9. I'm a dog guy who married a cat girl. We currently have 5 in-door cats. We have three large litter boxes that are cleaned three times a day. You cannot detected a litter box odor in our house. I know people who don't have enough litter boxes for multiple cats, or do not clean them regularly and they reek! In the past we had a few cats that went in and out, because they were use to that system when we acquired them. They would totally misbehave if they weren't allowed out. When those cats were eaten by coyotes, or run over by cars, we vowed never to have another outdoor cat. Currently, in our neighborhood, dogs that run free are a far greater problem. My neighbor across the street has a dog that was allowed to roam free and is a real PIA. It would always bark and growl at us when we went up to the top of the street to retrieve the paper or the mail. The dog also had a really bad habit of taking its "morning constitutional" on my lawn right near our mailbox. After debating a proper response to this daily assault that ranged from verbal complaints to "eliminating" the offender, we reached an acceptable response. Every day when I went up to get the morning paper, I took a shovel with me. I would pick up all the dog dropping and walk across the street and deposit them in the grass around the dog owners mailbox. After about two months of this, I came home in time to see an invisible fence installer leave that neighbor's driveway. I still get dirty looks from the neighbor's dog, but at least I don't have to take a shovel with me every morning to get my paper.
  10. I love these primers! I've been using for the last two years for my SKBs. I have never had a problem loading them in Remington STS or Winchester AA hulls. The wife and I picked up two bricks yesterday at our local Sportsmans.
  11. My father had a policy on his Colt collection (separate from his homeowners policy) with a major, well advertised, insurance company. He'd been with them for 50 years and never had a claim. All his Colts were stolen in a burglary. Unfortunately, he refused my advise of obtaining a gun safe; opting instead for a very ornate display cabinet. Even with photo and paper documentation of the stolen guns, it was a real hassle to collect on the stolen guns. The insurance company finally paid, but promptly canceled his homeowners and auto insurance. Two of the Colts were later recovered by the police. Both were no longer in great condition. The insurance company contacted him and insisted that he take possession of the guns and return the money they had paid him. He had already replaced both guns and told the insurance company to "take a hike". The only minor positive of the entire incident was that my father finally conceded that I had been right about getting a gun safe.
  12. For my wife's 97, like many others, I reload the AA's until the pleats break down. Her 97 will eat anything you feed it. My SKB's, however, hate AA's and I now only use Remington STS or gold nitro hulls. Even with Remingtons, I use a chamber checker for every round. Sticking hulls in a SXS are very disconcerting.
  13. I use Yul's method, but I use twice as much Strato-Sheen as Yul and I run them at least 3 hours. My brass is just as shinny as Larsen's. I got sick of dealing with the SS pins. Run a batch without pins and see what think.
  14. We've watched it twice; it's a great show.
