  1. It's a serated pin and it only comes out one direction. Im in the process of converting my American derringer to a quick barrel change out.

    Bond worked for American derringer and when the old man died he had a disagreement with the wife who now ran the company and went his own way. Both are very reliable and built like tanks.

    Good Luck Pards!

  2. You can open a can without any tools. You turn it upside down and scrape back and forth on a flat rock or cement with fair amount of pressure you will wear through the can rim within a minute or two,the  then you simply pry off the lid.

  3. I have one whole hide but it has a small bald spot (see pic) it measures 29"w x 45"L (not counting the tail.)

    And a half hide 26"w x 22"L (not counting the tail) you can have them both $50 + shipping or just the larger one  $35 + shipping 

    PS (The light "dots" are from the blinds, not on the hides)

  5. Not to get off topic, but a guy I worked with used to send all his holiday cards by putting the address he wanted to mail to it the return address spot and his address in the "mail to" section and not put any stamp on it.

    Turns out the USPS will send a letter all the way across the US for insufficient postage !

  6. I have 2 and a half pair.

    *1 pair 5 1/2"  44 mag stainless with stag grips

    * 4 5/8" .44 mag stainless with birdshead / stag grips

  7. While researching this subject this is what I have learned so far...


    During and after the Mexican War there apparently was a lot of grumbling in the ranks about the black ("Hardee") hats getting too hot in the warmer climates. During the Civil War hats were so scarce that soldiers on both sides wore hats of every color and description both civilian and military types and after the war the Army eventually kind of looked the other way if troopers "on the frontier" in the hotter climates wore lighter colored hats as allowed by their company commanders. In 1882 the light colored campaign hat was  recognized Officially. 

    Hope this helped, Pard!

  8. I paid $140 for mine back in the 80's thru CMP. When it arrived at the post office the clerk was a little old lady who had to be in 80's she looked like the old lady in the tweety bird cartoons and could barely carry the box and put it up on the counter, she exclaimed " Wow that's heavy! What is it?" And I replied "A Rifle "

    And she started jumping around, arms in the air, screaming "You can't send guns through the US mail!" Over and over. I calmly told her to "look at the label......It's from the Federal Government !" She quickly calmed down.

    It was pretty funny, and I'll never forget the look on her face!

  9. I stuff mine with fresh sage, chopped white onions, cut up apples and add chicken stock and Apple juice. Baste to your preference.

    And the cooking upside down thing mentioned earlier really works good! Cook until the thickest part of the breast is 165°

    If you go much over that it will start to dry out.
