  1. I imagine to cut down on large parties which generally happen in the wee hours with no social distancing.
  2. He also wrote: “If any question why we died. Tell them, because our fathers lied...
  3. I noticed that also and at least one shadow looks off.......
  4. My father was a member of the 125th Evacuation Hospital, they treated Dachau survivors, it was something he wasn’t willing to talk about.
  5. As regulating the barrels of double rifle is as much an art as it is a science its doubtful we'll ever see a double rifle most of us would consider affordable. The closest we came were the Italian made Sabboti rifles imported by Cabelas around 2010. They took some short cuts with regulating the barrels (primarily grinding on individual barrels crowns to effect the POI of each barrel) so they had a rather spotty reputation, that said, one of our Australian members has one and really likes it. The most common ones seen in the US were chambered in 45-70 or 9.3x72 and at the time cost between $3000 to $4000.
  6. I took a nice doe with the .50 270 grain Federal Premium BOR Lock. I was using a Traditions Vortex inline with two triple 7 pellets. Center punched the heart and the deer dropped in place. The bullet completely penetrated.
  7. From what's been reported here in SE WI, he was being pursed after shooting someone just prior to the beginning of video footage.
  8. Kenny Howell made the conversions for that movie, he also designed the conversion cylinders that we are discussing.
  9. I have a fair amount of experience with both SA and DA Starr repos. You should not use your thumb to SA cock a double action Starr. The DA Starr actually has two "triggers." The first trigger cocks the revolver, as it is pulled back past the cocking point it contacts the firing trigger at the rear of the trigger guard. There is a toggle switch on the rear of the cocking trigger which acts as a DA/SA selector. When set to SA mode, the travel of the cocking trigger is restricted and cannot reach the firing trigger. To SA fire the gun, you set the selector to SA, pulling the "trigger" only cocks the revolver, then reach behind the cocking trigger with your trigger finger to pull the firing trigger. Using your thumb to cock a DA Starr will most likely jam it. The single action Starrs work just like any SA revolver.
  10. You may find this video entertaining: https://www.full30.com/video/6afd3affeea07031b08c3dcb5cfc3604
