    Fairshake, If I can figure out how to get the cart, I'll take it. I'll do some thinking, but you are quite a ways away. My brother lives in Galveston, maybe we can make that work out, if you go to Baytown. My condolences on not being able to cowboy shoot anymore. I am helping a fellow shooter sell his guns and ammo, lifetime collection now, for the same reason. wishing you and yours the best. . My phone number is 903-316-2961. Busted Flush

      I didn't know where you lived in East Texas as you had posted, you could live in Orange as that is East Texas. I realize that Texas is a "BIG" state but you did not say exactly where you are at.

      Maybe you can post something in the area where you are at and ask if anyone  is coming to  anywhere in the South part of Louisiana.  I would be happy to meet with them to help you out. Later David 225-281-4665

      I live in Tyler. My stepson works offshore and goes through lafayette going and coming. He might be able to meet you. 

  2. I have a brand new never used 4 gun Maroon Rugged Gear Cart. I purchased the cart 2 years ago on hopes of getting back into SASS. My doctors were not able to fix my back where it allowed me to walk and then stand to shoot the stages. Now for part two, the cart was in my small shop and it got about 2-3 inches of water in it and the chrome rims rusted. This shows how cheap the chrome is. I purchased the cart with the no-flat tires and rain cover as extra's and I also installed a Golf umbrella mount on the handle bars. I'm handicapped and not able to pack this cart but maybe you could have someone pick it up that drives I-12 as I'm in Livingston, La. just 1 mile north of 12 or I may be taking a trip to Baytown in about 6 weeks or so. I'll let you have it for $ 425 Let me know, Fairshake
  3. Howdy,

     

    I just wanted to see if you did get those 44 wcf pistols sold?

  4. I believe alot of our members are unaware of the dark side that PP has. I've had an account with them for over 10 years now and would be lost without it. I agree that we don't need any one yelling from the mountain top and just remember the old saying from the WW11 era, loose lips,sink ships.
  5. I'll take the Santa Fe Trail book. please send me your paypal info. Thanks
  6. I'm interested in the knife with the black sheath with concho. Would you please post a pic of the knife out of the sheath. Thanks
  7. I purchased these revolvers several months ago during my third attempt to reenter the SASS shooting game that I love so much. I have some very serious medical problems that just will not improve to the point where I may enjoy shooting my BP again. Those full 44 wcf of 2 F sure put a smile on my face and winning was never my goal. These revolvers are still new in the box just like I received them. I'm a old style type shooter and I purchased old style hammers and triggers to install in them so they would be like the original ones that I once had. These parts will give them a 1/2 cock position and they will say COLT when cocked. They are included in sale but not installed. I want $1150 for the pair and the buyer pays for the shipping. I will accept cash, money orders and personal checks from long standing members that I know . SPF
  8. Well it finally hit me about three months ago as I was watching TV, my vision was blurry and I told the wife that I needed to go back to my eye doctor. I had been putting off my appointment for several months because my A1c (Diabetic} readings were very good at 6.2, I should of kept that appointment. I was told that I have cataracts in both eyes and that my left eye had developed a stigmatism that will require a special lens to correct. The other good news is that my Humana Insurance does not cover the cost of the lens which is in the $1200 range. I had both eyes measured about three weeks ago but I had to go back yesterday to look at them one more time before my surgery. I'm happy to see that I have a Doctor that likes to make sure. They are going to do my right eye first and then around 2 weeks or so later, they are going to do the left eye. I'm hoping that I will have my sighting vision return but if not I will continue to use my special shooting glasses that my eye doctor had ordered for me. If your eye Doctor is a shooter then it's easy for them to understand what you are requesting . My pair require that I put them on for at least 30 minutes before shooting so that I may become acclimated . The right lens is for sighting and the left is for infinity sight. It takes a while as I lose my depth perception at first. Well my fellow cowboys, I hope to be seeing y'all with better eyesight by the end of July. Later Fairshake
  9. Hi - nice shotgun - what is barrel length and what is length of pull if you don't mind - thanks - wicked wayne 195514

  10. I have used my cast bullet for the 44WCF for quite a while now and I keep them at 9-10 . You have shooters giving you the different numbers but it's important to know how they load and what they shoot. I shoot full case loads of 2F and my bullets give a perfect seal. If someone shoots 38 spl with a mouse fart load, they will not have much blow by. A person who shoots 45 Colt with full loads of real BP not only needs a soft bullet but you should anneal your case necks to soften the brass and stop most of the blow by. You can't compare the play like powders with shooting the real thing as the two don't burn alike. Paul Matthews has written several books that are good reading for a person interested in shooting the real powder. The lube you use is very important for good sealing, accuracy, clean up. I use NASA. Take Care Fairshake
  11. call me on my cell 601-431-1603 i want it, Pat
