  1. We was younger then. Back when there was a circus with a side show that came to town. I believe “Jerry” spent a lot of time with the side shows. ‘Cept he never learned how to close the act so you’d come back another time.
  2. This is Rose, (in repose) our Shar Pei/terrier mix. She agreed to join us last January when she was 7 1/2 years old. We met at the shelter and all we know is she's originally from Mississippi. Would love to know more about her background, but so far she isn't talking. All we know is she's a character and a sweetie!
  3. Found better things to do this evening than watch two detestable candidates try to deliver a memorable sound bite. And it doesn’t change my vote, regardless.
  4. We watched it last night for the first time in eons. Still a fun film. Gotta love the line when Jack Palance says to Billy Crystal: "I crap bigger than you."
  5. Are you talking about the two (Whisper) springs on either side of the lever? I had to do some minor fitting on mine. What problem are you having with yours?
  6. The newer ones have a “W” prefix in the serial number. Older ones don’t.
  7. Got my reduced power mainsprings from the The Smith Shop https://www.thesmithshop.com/ I have Cowboys & indians SS kits in my ‘60 Henry and ‘73. Love ‘em. PGW makes a great kit too, but it won’t work in older Ubertis like mine. Be sure to tell them what you have.
  8. I know nothing about this gal. But if good looks and a few good quips are qualifications for high office, Sarah Palin would be president. Hope this guv has more on the ball than Sarah.
  9. That hammer looks like the charge bar cam on my Mec reloader.
  10. Surprisingly, I haven't been... yet. Getting flooded with mailings tho.
  11. Those are awesome! Especially like the Gato. Can any of them submerge?
  12. Mine is an 1100T, as in trap. The barrel it came with is for trap, which I assume is a modified or full choke. Decades ago, I bought a "field" barrel that will accept any Remmie choke. That's the one I use the most as I can adapt it to whatever my needs are. Dang, that platform is elegantly designed.
  13. Yup, it’s a .455 Mark II Hand Ejector 2nd Model. Made between 1915-1917.
  14. Many people collect their news only from sources that tell them what they want to hear. God forbid they should check out another source for some context. It's maddening what/how much the media and public choose to ignore.
  15. ...every day. My trusty old Remmie 1100 failed me for the first time ever whilst pheasant hunting today. The hammer had stopped falling when pulling the trigger. Pretty irritating as a bird flies by in front of you. I cycled the action a couple of times and a part fell out the bottom of the receiver. Having never detail stripped the action, I had no idea what it was. But I knew I was dang lucky I saw the part fall to the ground. Checked out various detailed YouTube videos, yet the part was never shown or mentioned. By checking a parts diagram I id'd it as the "interrupter latch". Finally matched it to a post in a recess in the left side of the receiver just aft of the mag tube where it interacts with the trigger group. Apparently the retaining clip/ring that secured it to the post had fallen off. Whew, no broken parts! Found and ordered one from Brownells for $8.00. Problem solved. I not only learned something new, but got three birds before the failure. All in all, a pretty good day.
  16. I've seen that before. Gut wrenching to watch. Once is enough for me.
  17. The launch had been delayed a number of times. I still remember Dan Rather announcing after one of them, "Another black eye for NASA today..." Thanks, Dan.
