  1. I have several doubles, both hammered and hammer less. My go to gun is a Fox single trigger with 26 inch barrels . This gun just swings and stops nicely and fires the second shot as fast or faster than a double.
  2. I just got home from my lgs, They had a CZ Shadow 2 in the case, I just had to fill out the paperwork' By the time I paid of it the NICS check was done and I walked out with my gun
  3. I make my own rigs and like you I hand sew them I do not sew on bullet loops, for reloads I carry 4-6 rounds in my vest pocket
  4. Like John Boy I have not good results using Bertram brass. Case life was a big issure, I could count on losing about 10% of my cases before the second loading Was able to get about 500 45-90 and 150 45-120 cases from Norma a while back and am very happy
  5. I like the 25-06 myself, but here in Mid Missouri I have taken 12 Whitetail with handguns 4 of them with the 38 Super, the others with 44mag, 10mm, and 357mag As Warden Callaway said with good shot placement they will all work
  6. Several years ago I started making my own leather I now have more belts and holsters than I can count And I always want to make another rig, just to do something different Because I don't need to make a living at this, I enjoy making rigs for those just starting out at a price that lets me replace the supplies I use
  7. I had a problem with one gun I purchased from them Sent it in and had it back in less than 48 hours.
  8. I will not load ammo for others, due to the liability that comes with doing so Without Insurance, and a license It is just not worth the headaches that could come with it
  9. I have cast my own bullets for many years, and have made my own alloys depending on the need. I enjoy doing it, but plan to buy my lead already mixed from a couple of places I have found on the web The one thing I will point out is by the time you buy your lead and pay for your molds and other equipment and figure your time it's cheaper to buy your bullets
  10. I have the Lee Shaver sight on my pedersoli Sharps, it works well On my 86 I added the same sight as is on my Browning 45-90 Hi-Wall
  11. I started with the Lee pots many, many years ago Have owned several lee pots, still have one and they all either dripped or just ran like a water hose Use it to pre melt the lead for my Lyman and RCBS pots Even had 2 Ballisti- Cast machines for several years. Was turning out 4000 bullets an hour 6 days a week and could not keep up with sales But for hand casting the Lyman was my go to pot over the RCBS
  12. I find the Saeco steel molds to be some of the best. We ran them and the H&G, RCBS, and Lyman molds on casting machines The Saeco molds lasted the longest and were casting good bullets lone after the others were done If you go with the Lee, the 6 cavity molds are the best for the money
  13. I have shot at many clubs using rebar stands, in fact I helped build many of the stands these clubs. Never had an issue with splatter or bounce back
  14. Lumpy, I have one of the Winchester/Jap 86's as well. I put the same tang sight on it as came with my Win./Jap. High Wall 45-90 By the way Past recoil shield works very well to cut down on recoil
  15. I have 2 Grandsons. The oldest will be 3 on the 27th. the other one will be a year old 1st. day of March The older one's middle mane is Henry and has had a Henry made 1860 for about 2 years. In fact Papa was babysitting one day and had to get into the safe. Henry stood in the open door and reached out to the Henry and said mine and he had never seen the gun before. Now my problems the other Grandson, his middle mane is Harley
