  1. I compete in 10 meter air pistol with the Rockville IWLA by shooting at my basement range and scanning then emailing the targets to the league's scorer. Use a Morini 162MI pistol. The test target that came with the gun is 10 shots through one hole. It's an Italian design made in Switzerland. BTW - In Europe they are called weapons. The highest end guns have electronic triggers. I'm a troglodyte, so mine has a mechanical trigger. It still cost as much as a Colt SAA.
  2. The film Pentax lenses and bodies are still in demand. Their lenses are still compatible with all Pentax digital bodies. Specialty lenses (long and fast) go for big bucks. Google the Pentax Forum which has a bunch of very nice folks and a wonderful want ad section. I have to keep myself away from the want ads as have six lenses for my K-70 and just added a seventh. Will sell a duplicate focal length to remain at six. Sold a bunch of film Pentax's and their lenses for fair prices. BTW - The premier Pentax film repairmen is still in business at fair prices. Good film cameras sell at wild prices
  3. I had a 69 chrome all Campy Paramount that I rode for many years and sold it for twice my original cost. They were the Rolls-Royce of Schwin's. IMHO he is offering it at a very good price. Don't ride anymore due to age and vertigo; really miss it. BTW - If you find a distant buyer, have a bike shop pack and ship it.
  4. In WV = $0 for hunting and fishing licenses at age 65. Just use your drivers license or resident card; simple.
  5. The ATA gun safety rules are simple: 10. All guns must have the action opened and contain no live or empty shells at any time, except while the shooter is on the firing line. A break open gun’s action may be closed when it is in a gun rack but it shall not contain a live or empty shell. Repeat offender(s) of these Official Rules will be given a 30 day suspension upon a second violation of these Rules; a third violation of these Rules will result in a 90 day suspension; and further violations will be reviewed by the Executive Committee for further disciplinary action.
  6. I've been a long time seller on eBay; not anymore. They can go pound sand with their direct bank account requirement. I had PayPal problems a long time ago. Have had excellent service from them for the last five years or so. They squared away a scam from China over a Morini airgun front sight in a very prompt manner. Use it a lot.
  7. Their is a medicine that works well called Sileo. Available at a vet. You squirt a measured dose (by weight) into the dogs mouth. Pricy (about $48) for 3 or 4 doses, but worth it. Fireworks are legal where I live. Its a noisy mess for about a week. As a mater of fact, going to pick up my dogs dosage today.
  8. I remember pictures of George Herter holding a .401 revolver with one foot on some dead African animal and touting the caliber as able to kill anything that walked the earth. Always thought he was a self-promoting loudmouth. I still have a 1972 Herter's catalog. Everything he sold with his name on it was always: "The world's finest......" Spent many an hour reading their annual catalogs in the 1960's.
  9. The owner of a local gun shop in Martinsburg, WV personally makes a weekly trip in a big truck to a large-scale distributor in PA and is able to get reloading stuff regularly. He has a full stock of shot (7-1/2, 8, 9) at $39.99, and I picked up an 8lb jug of Titegroup for $179. Perhaps supply is beginning to catch up a bit. He had some CCI pistol primers for $89 which seems a bit high + I don't like CCI's. Anyhow, I'm a happy camper as can keep reloading for trap; factory shot shells are no where to be seen.
  10. Just posted this on the Trapshooters Forum, but thought it might be of some interest here. I started back to reloading shot shells when the ammo shortage hit and WallyWorld ran out of shot shells. Up to then, it was almost a wash cost-wise as STS's were about $7 a box at WallyWorld and I could sell the once-fired hulls that never hit the ground from my trap shooting for 10 cents each to cowboy action shooters. Reloading was costing me about $4.60 a box; just not worth it. Anyhow, started back reloading on my MEC Grabber using Clays, which I also use to load metallic car
  11. Turkey Flats Jack - I have one Browning Invector Mod (.705) and one Full (.069) I'll ship for $25. I can take PayPal. If interested PM me with shipping details.
  12. Unofficial definition of a bayonet: "A piece of steel with a peasant at either end."
  13. Turkey Flats Jack - Any idea what choke constrictions you are looking for, as I have a bunch of extra Browning Invector chokes that will fit factory threaded Stogers? Will sell them very reasonably. Just let me know.
  14. I was in the Jr ROTC (High School Cadets) at McKinley Tech in Washington, DC from 1951-54. At one point was made first Sergeant of C Company and was issued a Government-property NCO sword that was stamped 1862 on the hilt along with a Springfield 1903. Had to turn in the sword when I was promoted to an officer. Bought a used saber at a uniform shop for $15 that I still have. Officers had to supply their own sword and Sam Browne rig. It's a Knights of Pythias Uniformed Rank sword made by Horstman of Philadelphia, PA between 1893-1935; 32" in length. It's engraved "T C Williams". Tried to find
