  1. Nobody lives in NH. Maybe they were left over from before the pandemic.
  2. Have not seen Remington caps for over two years. Surprised to see them at Cabellas this morning. Price? Hold your breath. $13.99!
  3. When I was a kid an old family friend that was in his 90's kept telling me the greatest pitch of all time was the Christy Mathewson Fadeaway. Years later I was watching an old baseball movie biography of someone and they mentioned the Christy Mathewson Fadeaway. I found this little squib on it - For a time, Mathewson’s fadeaway was the most well-known pitch in baseball. Its seemingly gravity-defying bends dazzled players and fans alike. Outfielder Red Murray was the hurler’s teammate for seven seasons with the Giants and had a bird’s eye view of the twirler’s magical ways. In 1934, nearly 20 years after they last played together, he recalled to The Brooklyn Daily Eaglewhat he knew about Matty and his screwball:
  4. Magma makes the majority of commercial casting equipment. This sheet is all bevel base. https://www.magmaengineering.com/PDF/BBOct132008b.pdf
  5. The U.S. did away with the $500 bill for this reason years ago. Now some in D.C. are talking about getting rid of the $100. Of course the ultimate goal is to get rid of cash altogether and go digital.
  6. The timing of the Uberti short stroke is very precise. Advice that it might be this or it might be that is not going to fix the problem. The trigger, hand, bolt and hammer are all different. Here is just one critical adjustment. On a regular stroke the sear is the tip of the trigger (green arrow) and it fits into the half-cock and full cock notches and there is quite a bit of cylinder rotation between half-cock and full cock. On the short stroke the tip of the trigger (green) still fits into the half-cock but the full cock is a notch on the back of the trigger. (Purple arrow.) The parts are very hard to find so experimenting is not much of an option. If the gun is under warranty send it back to Uberti or one of the distributors and get it fixed. If the gun is out of warranty I would still send it back as parts are hard to get and not that many smiths can adjust them.
  7. Yes. https://www.midwestgunworks.com/page/mgwi/prod/370935
  8. There is actually film of George Bush being rescued by the U.S.S. Finback after his plane was shot down.
  9. Has nothing to do with the parents and the check does not go them. It has to do with the person that served.
  10. You need to fix that headline. It makes it look like the match has been cancelled.
  11. You frequently see grips with the area around the screw hole cracked or broken. Some grips are very brittle and people simply over tighten them. So here is a little trick to help prevent grip breakage. Ruger grip frames come in two thicknesses. 1/2"and 7/16". The grip frame on the left is 1/2 and the one on the right 7/16. Ruger grip frames are interchangable. For example the Single Six, Vaquero and New Vaquero gripframes will all interchange. The Single Six and Vaquero use the 1/2" thick gripframes. The New Vaquero uses the 7/16" thick gripframe. EXCEPT for the birdshead grip. Ruger did not bother making a special gripframe for the New Vaquero birdshead so it uses the same 1/2 version as the Single Six and Vaquero. In fact both of the gripframes in the above photo are of New Vaqueros. Birdshead on the left and plow handle on the right. A simple trick is to go to your local ACE Hardware and buy some spacers. Remember get 7/16" for plow handle New Vaqueros and 1/2" for everything else. You can get plastic or if you want to get fancy aluminum. Simply put on one grip, slip the spacer over the screw and put on the other grip. Now just snug up the screw and you minimize any risk of grip breakage.
  12. I have handled Darne's and Charlin's but have never seen one with a separate magazine. There are several on Gunbroker right now.
  13. I have a hubcap. Can anyone tell me what make, year and model of car it fits?
  14. You are 75 and the youngest person on the range.
  15. The flat cylinder latch is a sure fire sign it is an older model Centennial.
  16. Joe, I was reading from Representaitve Cortese's website. If you want to defend the nitwits in Sacramento so be it.
  17. Other than the rimfires I have never seen a rebounding hammer on a Marlin centerfire lever gun. Where did you get this infomation?
