  1. I am going to disagree with almost everyone here.  I have done multiple shotguns with a wheel cylinder hone, lots of oil and constantly moving it.  It is my belief that any method that does not use a stone has the risk of leaving the chambers looking smooth, but not as cylindrical as they are supposed to be. Use caution not to hone the extractor in the process, and don't feel the need to overdo it.  I have done several hard chrome lined barrels and you don't get anywhere close to removing the finish.

  2. Needs a squared off sight to make that more manageable.  Riding the slide is a no no for sure.  I slingshot my carry 45's because I want to know that first round is fully chambered everytime.  I shot IPSC 30 years ago and it does cost time, but not as much as a round that has to be shucked or a gun recocked for a second strike


  3. Interesting, it looks like it would be very stable to me.  I would imagine it can move side to side a very small amount, but it should not be able to tip in any direction


    Then again, I might have welded all the chain links if I built something like that that

  4. I have considered building a cart with a pair of rubber covered  metal  L brackets so as to simply hang the shotgun by inserting the  chambers down over the brackets.  If they are long enough security would be very high

  5. The .45-90 is an express cartridge intended to use lighter bullets in the 330 grain range.  Great for putting the hurt on something up close, but as the ranges are extended the poorer balistics can't keep up with the 405 grain or 500 grain loadings in the .45-70.


    I built a .45-90 with a barrel set up for heavy bullets in an old 1886 and that would flat rattle your teeth.

  6. It was a high pressure version of the round meant only for 1892 and the like, not older toggle link guns.  There were similar versions for the .32-20, .38-40 and .44-40, though I do not know of headstamp differences in the latter cartridges.

  7. The Attorney client privilege is the client' to exercise. After their death, the Attorney cannot violate that privilege, but the court could compel a lawyer to do so if circumstances were appropriate.  While it is not an absolute privilege, it is the cornerstone of representation and any lawyer that violates it should be punished.

  8. Working in the government's favor is the fact that challenging these rules requires access to the civil courts which are moving slowly at this time and in the best of time is would take months to get a ruling.  By the time a challenge is presented and ruled upon, we'll be well into our next "disaster"
