  1. Margot Robbie as Barbie. I would love to go nuts painting her.
  2. In all honesty that had to have been an error in your favor. Locally at Sportsman's they are $58. Remingtons were more than $28 pre-covid.
  3. That is only because he has figured out you know how to work the can opener.
  4. You simply do NOT have enought pressure. When you fire a gun the primer pokes out and then when pressure builds up in the shell it pushes against the recoil shield and reseats the primers. If you want to shoot BP blanks the standard fix is to drill out the flash hole to a larger size. This is NOT something that needs to go to Cimarron for repair. Once you have drilled out the primer flash holes keep them separate from your other brass as they are no longer safe for full pressure loads.
  5. The first thing to do is to put an EMPTY DEPRIMED case into the chamber and then check the extension's movement. They often stick when the bolt is closed on an empty chamber because the front of the bolt is lifted by the extractor and this binds the extension.
  6. It would be useful to post a link or a photo so we know what you are talking about.
  7. After a month straight of 110+ degree days I decided to make the trek to the Western Regional. When I left Phoenix it was 113 and by the time I got to I-10 it was 116. I got to Morro Bay about 2:00 in the afternoon the next day and it was sunny and 58! It stayed in the mid-60s at Morro Bay and got up to maybe 70 degrees at the range which is about five mles inland from the bay. When they tell you the weather is sunny and 70 they mean it. Looking out the window of a restaurant at Morro Bay's big rock. Inside I am having filet migon and lobster. (No I did NOT use the A1 that was sitting on the table.) Walking down the pier a crabber is unloading the day's catch. Down the wharf a ways a pirate ship was docked for the night. And a sea otter was playing by the ship. Oh, I hear there was a shoot going on a few miles down the road. For photos of the stages look at the Chorro Valley website. It was great seeing SInful, El Lazo, Snakebite, Roger Rapid, Yul Lose and others that I only get to see infrequently these days.
  8. The same ones rewriting Snow White for Disney.
  9. Left to right. Vaquero, New Vaquero, SBH/Montado, Bisley. The SBH/Montado have the same profile the difference being the Montado has cast in checkering and the SBH has grooves. The hammer in the photo is a Montado. Look at the upper right hand hole in the Vaquero and New Vaquero hammers. Notice the wall thickness on the outside of the hole. Tne New Vaquero hammer is thicker than a Vaquero hammer. Because the New Vaquero hammer is thicker the hammer slot in the gripframe has been deepened/lengthened. Red arrow. As a consequence the Vaquero gripframe has enough clearance so a SBH/Montado hammer will fit in most Vaqueros. The New Vaquero has enough clearance so that a Bisley hammer will fit in most New Vaquero gripframes. To fit a Bisley hammer in a Vaquero requires deepening the slot in the gripframe and/or grinding the hump off the back of the hammer.
  10. My daughter says that looks like me in the movies. I seldom make it all the way to the end.
  11. I know two other people that have them and they are also jam-amatics. Probably why the .44 Russian chambering was discontinued. Local Cabellas had a used one for a long time before it disappeared from the shelf.
  12. .44 Russian, .44 Special in a .44 Mag. No different that shooting .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt, or .38 Special in a .357 Mag (I shoot all four) or .45 Cowboy and .45 Colt in a .454 Casull or .460 S&W. The only way to avoid cleaning your gun(s) is to not shoot them at all.
  13. With that clarification, none that I have ever seen or heard of.
  14. You need to clarify what you are talking about? The question cannot be answered as written. Modern day .44 Russian ammuntion Modern day guns chambered in .44 Russian Modern day reproductions chambered in .44 Russian Modern day reproductions of the actual S&W .44 "Russian" Other
  15. The all-time best seller about cats.
  16. Hell for anyone under 70 how many remember or have heard of Perry Como?
