  1. Fellow shooter sold me his and I love it. It is not for sale . He replaced his Marlin 32 with a Henry 327 Federal so his field revolver and carbine would shoot the same ammo. His shoots 32 H&R just fine. If you cannot find a Marlin, you might want to check out the Henry 327. Not as fast to work, but might fill your need.

  3. I stumbled on some trivia about the Lawman tv show that ran for from 1958 to 1962 for 156 30 minute episodes . It starred John Russell as marshal Dan Troup and Peter Brown as deputy Johnny McKay. In the four seasons, Dan Troup was hurt 16 times and shot 13 times. He wounded 22 people and killed 87. Johnny McKay was hurt 22 times and shot three times. He wounded 12 people and killed 31. Crime did not pay on that show.

  5. I had a 45 Colt Thunderbolt which was a fun practice rifle and worked pretty well in practice. Something different between practice and shooting a match because it would mess up in every match. It took me a couple of years to finally give up and get rid of it,. The rifle was very particular on COL and if you thought a Marlin .45 had a lot of blow back, you had never shot a .45 Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt gave Taurus a lot of bad comments
  6. I don't own a 7 shot Ruger .327, but have wondered if a colored plug that would fill two side by side chambers which could be seen from both ends of the cylinder could make the Ruger 7 shot into a five shot and therefore a legal SASS revolver By making the plug fill two chambers and being connected at the back of the cylinder it would require the cylinder to be removed from the revolver to remove plug. Rugers come with that little yellow or orange plastic disc at the back of the cylinder and the plug could be just big enough to cover two holes and would have two dowel like pieces to the end of two cylinders in the same color. Same concept could be used on a Ruger 10 shot 22 revolver or other brands that are 8 or 9 shot
  7. Friend told me this the other day. " I need to change my will. I have toilet paper."
  8. I don't need your rifle and hope one of these other shooters makes a deal with you, You post made my wife and I smile when we read it. I hope you find a good guy.
  9. I was given some M42g primers the other day that had been made by Winchester. They are in a white box with a black plastic tray. The primers are copper colored. I was told they are the same as small pistol primers.. Can I load some light 38s with them?
  10. Started out years ago with a 44 Magnum Winchester 94 that had problems with everything special or magnum. I tried a Rossi that jammed with 44 Special, then a Browning that worked fine with 44 Special. with 200 rnfp seated normally for both pistols and rifle. I later added a late model Marlin was a pain with 44 Special until lots of modifications. Found 44 Magnum brass with 200 rnfp and 240 gr seated out in special brass cured the Marlin problems. Finding the right cartridge length was the key to having the Marlin work right. Along the way I started shooting 200 rnfp in Russian cases for BP in handguns . I finally started using 160 or 180 gr bullets in Russian for BP. I found 44 Special in cowboy loads had blow back problems in my Marlin just like my 45 Colt Marlin if I went lower that 200 grain bullets. If you wind up with a rifle load and a different pistol load you might as well shoot 38 special handguns,. There is not much difference in recoil feel in rifles compared to handguns and it is really easy to keep 38 handgun loads separate from larger caliber rifle loads. If you find you really like the sport you could add a 38-357 rifle down the road and keep your Marlin 44 as a spare. It does not hurt nearly as much to lose 38 Special brass as it does more valuable 44 Special or Magnum. If you want to keep with 44 for everything, you might think about light bullets in special for you pistols, You will spend a little more for bullets than 38s , but not much. The 160-180 cowboy bullets or 190 full wad cutter are great in your pistols and easy to tell the difference from 200 grain for your rifle loads so you can use the same 44 Special brass for everything. Once you start shooting and buying stuff you might think about some nickel brass for some load to easily tell you that it is for a different load or gun,. You really can't go wrong and welcome to the sport
  11. Might I suggest you talk to a cowboy shooter who has a case trimmer. Anyone who has shot much has had 38 special and .357 mag cases crack on the ends,. I have trimmed lots of them to 38 Short Colt length to make shells for a derringer. You stated Short Colt and not .38 S&W which are different. . Easy to do especially if you have drill motor attachment for a case trimmer.
  12. We tried a few W3G matches at Tater Hill a few years ago and even had the bonus targets made for it. We hoped it would draw more shooters to our small program and maybe give us a little something different.. All that came were mostly are small group of regulars, The serious SASS shooters complained about it messing up their timing. I thought it was fun. We had several Wild Bunch matches before WB became official, but they did not catch on either. The shooters were so concerned about brass recovery it took forever to shoot a match. We switched to doing a .22 version of WB match and we get at least a few shooters. The last one I wrote with 20 pistol shots on a few stages was right out of a club's real WB matches. The shooters expected the usual 10-10-4 round count of a regular cowboy match complained about too many pistol rounds. At least we did not spend all day looking for missing brass. Times have changed. None of the real competitive shooters want to shoot flying birds or shoot a Texas star. Even the simple shotgun target which pops up a clay slows down a regular match, but would add to a W3G. If I knew I could draw some shooters, I would work to get some dates and put on W3G or WB on a regular basis.
