  1. I recommend this read.......True West June 2020....very well written and researched.
  2. I’d go with that miniature Ruger, it sure is fun and easy to shoot. Price is good also. Another fun one is the S&W MP .22 Compact, but it is 3 times larger than the lil Ruger.
  3. Gary Reeder Custom Guns in Flagstaff had a bunch for sale really cheap....call em..... https://www.reedercustomguns.com/
  4. I have always shared this to those new to western big game hunting. Buy the best boots and optics you can afford. Everything else is secondary.
  5. I am with you and besides the vapors are toxic.......less effort to buy.
  6. I have the same problem, great guns just follow me home. Worse than that, they breed and create new guns in the safe if left untouched for 90 days! I hope I don't encounter a side by side double rifle anytime soon, I am feeling weak in the knees.
  7. This pandemic has been bad for me. I cleaned my reloading room, sorted what I need and didn't need, reloading, cleaning guns, sold a bunch of stuff and acquired two homeless guns that are new to me. I haven't had the problem of idle time.....
  8. I'm with you! Lets talk about anything cowboy! Big rodeo right now in Woodward OK, 2 weeks till Prescott AZ Worlds Oldest Rodeo and we recently did a pack trip into the forest in eastern AZ. We had no cellular service, slept out beneath the stars, drank our coffee black and had bacon and eggs in the early morning. We talked about horses, guns, history and created memories. We also threatened to deal with any one who spoke of taboo topics that are making people crazy. God Bless Society Distancing!
  9. If my roots were not so deep in AZ i'd be in Wyoming.
  10. I have never seen one....maybe I need another .44.....
  11. Buy good once or cheap several times. Buy what is comfortable for you and remember two guns are heavy. There are so many quality rigs being made the hard part will be settling on one. I shoot classic so I do not use a speed rig, I use traditional styles from the 1880's. Remember this is not a fast draw competition.
  12. I wish Dillon would build a pickup.....
  13. SOLD to Barleycorn New Vaquero wooden grips. Classic panel silverblack checkered Fleur-de-Lis, $60.00 for the pair & I get the shipping. dr3498@hotmail.com https://www.altamontco.com/pistol-grips/ruger/newvaquero/
  14. I hate rude behavior in a man. (Lonesome Dove) - YouTube
  15. I guess ACME will be the next to be cut......after all ACME stuff has been known to fall from cliffs into the paths of predators with paws.
  16. Send the image to Gary Reeder Custom Guns in Flagstaff, AZ, he can tell you because I believe he makes something very similar or exactly that.
  17. It always seem to come back full circle....humanity is too predictable.
  18. Check off the alien one, it arrived from China and is microscopic.....personally I don't think the majority of people could handle a big rock falling from the heavens.... I'd really appreciate the man himself showing up and telling so many to just behave!
  19. I just think it is wonderful that someone on our shores has taken on the task of making a piece of history. For that reason alone I have created a stash fund to buy one of these US made Henry rifles. A 44-40 would compliment my SAA's seven days a week. The rifles that I have seen are beautiful.
  20. My Marlin 1894 .44 mag is a dedicated saddle rifle, it is not a CAS gun and it is just as tough as nails. You can shoot full loads through it all day long. It has seen a lot of back country carry in a scabbard. My partner has the Henry, you just cannot shoot it as quick and reloading is rather slow. Personally, go find a Marlin.
  21. I have two perspectives: From the perspective of someone who is passionate about the old west and old style guns, I believe that a revolver, scatter gun and a lever gun will more that suffice in the worst case scenario. From a law enforcement perspective of 27 years, once upon a time the Ruger Mini 14 or XGI .308 was a great tactical advantage but then entered the AR series of weapons. I think they are ugly but highly efficient and extremely accurate. Having shot 3 gun with a AR I developed an appreciation for their design and function. At the same time I was issued one while in LE and was glad I transitioned into the AR format. On the day I retired I was considered a dinosaur because I refused to give up my Colt 1911 for a Glock. In the event of a worst case scenario, my go to will be a AR.
  22. If you have not taken a financial hit during the pandemic, you are a fortunate person. All of us have seen or experienced the struggle. Living in a tourist based town, the level of unemployment is not quite what the local government reports, I believe it is considerably higher. I had 144 college students in the spring semester, about 1/3rd lost their job. Many had to break their lease and move back home. I cannot imagine the hit that has been taken by SASS or any other sporting-recreation venue. Things in AZ have started up again, but AZ is ahead of many places. I can only recommend that we stay strong and continue to invest in what ever sport we believe in. I am optimistic that we will bounce back. Now take a young person shooting, it is our future.
