  1. The town of Vincennes, IN is home to the Indiana Military Museum. It's a wonderful , easy access Museum which also host some re-enactments during the year. The museum is 2 bldgs. The first bldg. is organized display cabinets of items pertaining to the different wars from 1700's to present. Many uniforms and weapons, and the floor is covered with guns, jeeps etc. The newest bldg. has large equipment, tanks trucks , towed guns, and even a section of original barracks removed from a local WW2 air training field. Outside, the acres are filed with planes, helos, trucks, etc. They even have the conning tower off the submarine Indianapolis. Much of the equipment has been re-stored by volunteers locally. The re-enactments are carried out in a field behind the museum. There's some old buildings and trench networks for use depending on the era being honored. They operate some of the trucks and tanks during the show and some of the non-runners are placed on the field. The soldiers do a questions-answer talk afterwards. Now don't get me wrong, this is not something that attracts thousands. A few hundred will be a big crowd as this is not a heavily populated area. They have a program on Aug 15, 2020 to honor Vietnam veterans. I was told there would be re-enactors and that possible they will have a real flying huey to do an extraction. Please check with the museum before traveling to make sure this is still going on. But mark the location to see the museum if you are in the area, It is SW Indiana (s of Terre Haute, n of Evansville). Vincennes is a historical city in it's on right, (George Rogers Clark) and they have a yearly Rondevous with battles and such, but it has been canceled for this year.

  3. The Blackjack knives were copies of Randall patterns. Both of those blades are copies of Randall model 1
  4. I have reloaded and shot a lot since the late 60's- a variety of stuff. But I had ignored 38 Super till about 3 years ago. Bought an older PARA full size 1911 and started feeding it. Made a sport out of reloading and using up old powders and bullets thru it. It shoots everything good, even used up a bunch of lead semi wadcutter 158 gr revolver bullets. I have been very impressed with the cartridge, especially when I consider when it was invented and put into use. The only thing that keeps me from shooting it more and in competition is it's hard to scrounge brass for the cartridge. The story goes that the first Colts weren't very accurate with the cartridge till aftermarket gunsmiths started chambering barrels and found the right way to headspace the chamber. I think it is the cartridge that the FBI should have gone to instead of 9mm. It's a peppier round but still very controllable and fits in the same size gun. If you like to play around try it!
  5. It appears I have the Richard Mason conversion by Uberti. I have found a Navy grip and will soon be installing it. I sometimes shoot 1860's (Navy gripped) and love the way they handle- and I notice the women casting admiring glances my way when so armed! I shot this RM with the Army grip but it is big and slick and I just like the Navy grip with my pinkie curled under the bottom. I'll get the Navy grip installed and maybe cut it down to about a 5" barrel. put a big ol' ivory bead sight on front and get down to business! Do these models do ok w/ 44 Russian full of black?
  6. I always get be-fuddled when I deal with these models. The sight is on the hammer and there is the ring with the loading gate behind the cylinder.
  7. I use 451 and I like them to shave a ring. Many shoot with shortened barrels and load the cylinder off the gun in a Tower of Power. No problem pushing them down with the tower! Anytime Iv' shot my cap guns on paper I've always been amazed that that round ball shoots so accurately, at least at close range. I feel that the small crude sights challenge accuracy more than the ball.
  8. I've got a 1872 Open Top, 44 Colt. Sight is on the hammer, and it has the ring behind the cylinder with a loading gate. Says Cimmaron on the barrel. Serial is XO4439 and cat 12596. I assume it is Uberti but not stamped anywhere. It is Army grip and I'd like to change to Navy grip. Is it a Uberti? Is the grip different than a Pietta? Anybody have a Navy grip they want to trade or sell?
  9. Shootist, I'll get a MO out to you Monday.   Kent Harrison  PO Box 421, Mt. Carmel, Il 62863

      I was called away to investigate graft and  corruption concerning Veterans affairs....your name came up....

  11. I would have like to do some gun trading with tha Dawg before the anathesia wore off!! Hang in there Dawg, I've had both knees done( partials) and I'm still clumsy and can't dance, but I can shoot just as slow and miss just as many.....
  12. Thanks for the replies, now I can study up some. Those DS rifles look like the ultimate of the type. I actually owned an FN/FAL for a brief while, but only shot it a little. Also had some HK 91's- sold the last one like new in the box for $800.00. Been awhile back....
  13. I've got a little bug started about these rifles. I knew years ago which was most desirable inch or metric, but have forgotten. Can anybody "edjicate" me? And anybody have one to sell or trade off?
