  1. I was fortunate enough to attend a cowboy shoot in Sackville and had a great time. Thanks to Major Crimes for making it possible. If you ever get the chance to shoot in Australia don’t miss it. Thanks to our posse for making me feel at home on their range .
  2. I used the wagon style for about three years before moving on to a two wheeled cart. I did use scabbards one on each side so not top heavy. I parked in the back of the stage so no issues removing long guns from the scabbards. I switched because the handle was placed where I had to bend over some to pull it and after awhile it bothered my back. Even the two wheel carts can get top heavy. Good luck on your search.
  3. I am old school. If the engine is happy with it's current oil why change. I still change my oil every 3K just because it makes me feel better. I have read that almost all oil contains some synthetic anyway. I have a case of non-detergent oil that I used in my Model A Ford. May buy another A sometime.
  4. We have a lot of pine trees on our property so will look for some good branches. DC
  5. I always overthink wood projects so any advice on making a prop hitching rail? Thanks, Diamond Curly
  6. I will still pay the $375.00 for the Dragoon & holster shipped. Thanks, DC

      Thanks for the reply. DC

  7. I checked out our local USPO  and a UPS office and they want between $85.00 - $110.00 plus $45.00 more for a box to ship it. Sounds too high for me but just letting you know. Rates have really increased this past year. Thanks, DC

      Hi Diamond Curly,

      Wow!  That is a lot to ship, but I need one and I'm ready to pull the trigger.  Please call me so I can get your money going to you;-)

      Thank you so much!

      Diamond Curly,

      My apologies, I thought I had sent this out.  But, I just saw the envelope still sitting on the corner of my cluttered desk/work-top.  I'm trying to send this out via Priority Mail, but the post office site won't take this, William Edick, 239 Bailey Colorado 80421.  Do you have a city or town name I can plug into that line?

       

       

      Again, I'm sorry for making you wait on this.

      Ron

  9. I traded for the revolver 10 years ago and never shot it. It appears to be the black powder frame according to the front to faced owl head grip. I would prefer a FTF sale in Colorado but would ship if buyer pays fees and shipping. I will include 100 rounds of ammo as well. Asking $90.00. Pics available with an e-mail. Thanks, DC
  10. I try to get to the range for my Swede 96, glocks, Ruger LC9, TC Renegade, various 22 rifles and pistols about once a week. I do shoot pistols at home but not rifles.
  11. I shot with him when he lived in Colorado. Rest in peace pard.
  12. I would not have a problem allowing someone to shoot Frontiersman with the 58 carbine. It would not take that long to exchange and cap the new cylinder in the carbine. I have shot with one pard who shot a percussion shotgun with preloaded paper shot shells and that was a lot of fun to watch. I agree that the cylinder should be capped on the line as well. I shoot with South Park Slim and he is a safe shooter so could handle the transition well. Looking forward to seeing him at a shoot with his carbine.
  13. I looked at Buds Guns and the only have 45's left. They will let me know if they get any in 38. Thanks, DC
  14. I would not be at the loading table either if someone capped a cylinder outside the frame and then replaced the cylinder. The original post did not say what brand of caps he was using or what size cap. I have had good luck replacing any of the three caps that Dawg mentioned with Remington #10. I use the back of my in line capper to seat the caps because you do not have to have that much pressure to seat the cap. I have used other cap brands and was not pleased. Put on better nipples and use Remington caps and he will not have to squeeze then to make then stay in place. Works for me.
  15. I tried wearing the flap holsters for a few monthly matches and it was fun. What I found out that to make it effective I had to shoot every match with the same set up or it was not fun. Give it a try and see if you like it. Good luck.
  16. I started out with a Hartford 92 in 38 special and that worked out financially for me at the time. I still shoot a 92 in 38spec occasionally but prefer my 66 or 73 in 44/40. The new Rossi 92 is fairly affordable and I would chose that over the Henry Big Boy just because of price. If they want a Henry Big Boy then that is what they should buy. I switched to black powder after two years is the main reason I switched to the 66 and 73. When I shoot smokeless I use my 92.The Henry shoots good out of the box but I did need some work on the new Rossi to make it shoot smooth. Wishing them a good experience in SASS whichever way they go with a rifle. DC
