  1. Was walking along a lake with the 1st wife one day, and a buxum brunette walked by wearing a tiny slingshot bathing suit.

    Of course the wife caught me with my tounge hanging out, and asked "How come you never look at ME like that?"

    I told her the truth..........."Cuz......... you never look look like that"

    I haven't seen her in 30 years, go figure..................................

  2. What's in it for me?? One shouldn't even dignify that with an answer..........

    Just about every weekend is spent at the range working. Numerous articles donated to the range. Hauling computers and coffee, cookies flatware napkins along with tools, carts, building material.

    Donating prizes, lending out gear. Buying equipment to be used at the range, not to mention the money donated,and or loaned to get the club moving. What's in it for me???

     

    An orginazation that is always standing at the gate with their hand out for money.

    They want yearly dues from the members, they want yearly dues from the club, they want dues for every shoot, they want their chunk when we put on a State Shoot.

     

    They told our club that we ARE going to host the state shoot, or they would send people to do it.They send EXPIRED gift cards as prizes, have not bought one nail, nor driven one.

     

    What's in it for me? Oh................. just more dues to pay...........

    Get a grip.

     

    There must come a time when enough is enough.......................

  3. I know quite a few shooters who have stated that this dues increase was the last straw. "It's like throwing money to the wind."

    Last year SASS sent us a bunch of gift cards as prizes for our State Shoot................ALL EXPIRED!!! Nothing in the "Mercantile" worth buying anyway

    The SASS Cronical is gone, That new rag isn't worth looking at.

     

    For a couple at $75.00 + $60.00 a year for what? Nothing.

     

    Why is SASS membership dropping? It ain't Rocket Science.

  4. You bought a Winchester by Miroku 66 a year ago? They only had a couple of engraved prototypes at the shot show a year ago. If you have a standard "production" model where did you get it?

    My Bad!! Sorry!!! Was only seven years off, mine is a '73 :blink:

  5. I have had Pedersoli sights on a couple rifles. The real spendy ones and their mid range ones. The really spendy ones, are kind of sloppy, and have twice as many hash marks as need be. The not so spendy ones, are a lot easier to read, but still have slop, or back lash when adjusting them.

    I put a "Kelly" sight on one of my rifles, and my my,that was a WHOLE lot better.

    I have heard good things about MVA sights, but never used one..

    Seeing as I'll be needing some new sights down the road, AND it is the middle of winter, I figgured this would be a good time to discuss sights ...........

    So, how do the sights compare to one another, I know I have mentioned three brands, but we need not limit it to just those, as long as they are "quality" sights. Front and rear.

     

    Thanks,

  6. I don't know if this s correct, but I have never seen any loads with smokeless for those big postells one would use at the longer ranges.

    Nothing wrong with smokeless,I shoot it in other guns. But the sound and the fire out of a "Buff" gun is just too cool. B)

  7. I have a Pedersoli Quiggley in 45-70. It has been re-stocked with custom "Myrtel" wood and has a "Kelly" tang sight on it. Soon it will be getting a "Kelly" front sight which has a bubble inside it.

    That being said, next fall, (I hope) a Shilo sharps "Saddle Rifle" in 38-55 will be arriving. It too will be out fitted with Kelly sights.

    Neither of them will taste "Smokeless" powder while under my care. I have a couple Marlins in 38-55 that will be smokeeless guns tho..........

     

    I'm not saying you are making the right or wrong decision by waiting, and I know that it's a hard thing to do. But on the bright side, if you go with the Shilo, you will have at least 18 more months to save your gold. ;)

    You seem to be a level headed young man, and I wish you well in your endeavours. If I can be of any assisstance, give me a holler.
