  1. A goodly number of Buicks are made in China. Cheaper to make them there and import them than build them here. Just go to a Buick Dealer and open the driver's side door. On the country of origin tag it will proudly say Made in China. This is the Buick Envision. Made in Shanghai.
  2. I had a Rhohatsu. Cheap North Korean car. Nothing to celebrate.
  3. I have a Ginsu. It will cut through an engine block and still slice tomatoes.
  4. https://home.epix.net/~damguy/Moss-cross.htm Scroll down to Western Field.
  5. My dad's birthday is December 7. On December 8, 1941, he was at the Navy recruiting station. He was 16.
  6. The .38s used a conical firing pin. The .357s used a pin with a smaller diameter nose that floats to center it in the frame. The smaller diameter accomodates higher pressure.
  7. It is still made. Winchester and Remington among others still make it. Problem right now is if it is not 9mm most stores are not carrying it.
  8. Known as the Doctrine of Prior Appropriation. You can have a river running through your property but not be entitled to take a drop of water from it.
  9. You have to be a little familiar with western water rights. Basically a problem from day one at FR was that they only had a permit for one domestic well. There is no water for cattle or farming.
  10. Been posted for almost three weeks. Look at the website.
  11. I thought you were talking about the SASS Wire.
  12. Back in the 1950's when I was still a squirtling and living in Hawaii (pre-statehood) I bought this album because it was the closest thing to an adult magazine I could buy. The music was not all that good, but I sure liked the picture.
  13. The point is that many SASS shops are one-man shops. When the one man is down the shop is down. Woulda, coulda, shoulda, is fine with an outfit with thousands of employees. Not so much with a one man shop.
  14. I know a couple of people that bought .44 Russians. Neither worked. The rounds are simply to short.
  15. As many of you know, Jim Bowie had spine surgery October 19th. He was in the hospital for about 12 days which included about 5 days physical and occupational therapy. He is doing well but resting alot. You can send us an email at candistorestore10@gmail including your phone number and he will be calling customers back beginning next week. Thank you all for your patience. Jim Bowie is the Cowboys & Indians Store. Jim from a 2016 photo.
  16. Sounds nothing like the Love Makes the World Go Round that I remember.
  17. My dad was on the Skate when it surfaced at the North Pole. He was on a Trident submarine when he retired in 1967. I still have one of these envelopes.
  18. A follow-up to my plans for a sumptuous feast is that it was tasty but by no means sumptuous. I don't remember what the Hungry Man dinner cost last year. BUT there are two ways to raise costs. One is to raise the price and the second is to reduce the amount of product. This year the dinner still had four "slices" of turkey but this year all four of those slices were not as thick as one slice last year. I will skip the reasons and just note things could have changed at the mid-term elections but the American people pretty much decided to keep things as is so we reap what we have sown.
  19. That is because they are "sprung like ejectors" but they are not ejectors. On most extractor only guns, for example the Stoeger or SKB 100, the ejector has a rod that is pushed by a cam in the fore end to mechanically push the extractor back. The Model 24 does not have a mechanically activated extractor. It relies on two heavy springs to push the extractors back.
  20. Just got back from my Thanksgiving trip to the movies. Laid out all the incredients and now it is time for the arduous task of preparing a sumptuous feast.
