  1. You find yourself in the LGS and ask if they have a second pistol, not to choose from but to buy a pair. You have been known to carry a single action for conceal carry. Walrus ivory is good but elephant is pure decadence and quietly desired. You get really excited when you find a older Marlin that you do not have, yet.... "Colt" is not a 4 letter word. You find yourself reading True West at work, digitally..... Your "go to" is a revolver. You firmly believe cowboy guns breed if left undisturbed in the big metal box for 120 days. You make a point of shooting or riding your horse on National Day of the Cowboy on the 4th Saturday in July. And lastly, you know that we need a true Cowboy in the White House.
  2. Whenever I fall to temptation and use a .45 for long range it allows me to go make a sandwich and enjoy it while the bullet is in flight......

  4. Pelican. Absolutely the best if it fits within your budget. For hunting and flying I prefer a 2 rifle case, which also holds knives, binos, ammo, handgun and rifle. This also works very well for CAS.
  5. I began reloading in the summer of 1972...…yes there was smokeless powder way back then. I have never looked back. I was a skinny kid in high school who worked most of a summer to buy a RCBS Rock Chucker Kit and some components for my .357 Blackhawk. I still use that press for large rifle loads and blue one for pistol calibers. Buy what works for you and jump in. Unless you have a lot of money for factory ammo, it is the only way to go. Talk to folks, read everything that you come across and calculate your savings. There is so much information out there these days there is no reason to not become highly educated on the topic.
  6. No i'm not an expert but in carrying but Colt 1911's in LE for almost 2 decades here are what failed the least for us. Wilson Combat Colt factory magazines (they say Colt on the base) Chip McCormick The handgun was Colt, Kimber or Springfield in .45 ACP. Since them, it is now all about black plastic and 9mm. My personal favorite is the Wilson.
  7. Great shoot and a great experience! Thanks to all that made it happen! And a big "Howdy" from posse 11....
  8. I recently asked a new neighbor what town in California did he come from and he replied, " Is it that obvious?" I told him it was the Tesla in his garage. Welcome to Flagstaff. Locals look forward to heavy winters that scare many back. As a side note, my neighbor now drives a F250, a John Deere and recently drew a coveted elk tag. Welcome to the high country.

  11. I have a pair of Lindholm Brothers Spurs that are too aggressive for my taste to use on my horse but they enhance the cool factor at Bordertown....
  12. I have an exceptional black bear hide that is 37 X 30 inches in size. It is from a spring bear so the hair is quite thick. I would like $275.00 for it and I get the shipping. Thanks for looking...
  13. Never was a AR person. Then our department made us trade in our Mini 14's for that plastic, steel and aluminum rifle. I was not a fan of fixing what wasn't broken. I accepted the change and learned as much as possible about the weapon. I am not a expert, whether self proclaimed or actual but I did learn a few things about the AR platform. First and foremost: Keep it simple and keep it affordable. There are many quality rifles being made that will not break the bank. Second: Iron sights or optics, choose a optic that you can shoot through when the batteries fail, simply put have manual fold down sights on that rifle. We settled on two that seemed to be the most reliable and always choose waterproof. Third: Good aftermarket trigger assemblies are wonderful. Lastly: Pick a caliber that you can afford to shoot. And the rest is up to you.....Hope this helps.

  19. Not quite sure how I'd pull off that level of financial infidelity....a truly amazing rifle. A great value for what it is. Mine is not quite as fancy but it is a heirloom and quite the elk rifle.
