  1. Interesting “cultural” differences here.
  2. A single action revolver holster will often serve. Shove your 1911 in and confirm that the slide forward of the ejection port is covered. If so, rock on. Frugality rules.
  3. Taylor’s had one in their tent for sale via silent auction. I saw a $5000 bid on it
  4. I believe the Greenville (SC) Gunfighters’ June match has been cancelled so everyone in Upstate SC who wants to shoot this weekend should consider attending the Cherokee Cowboys’ match.
  5. Paul Combest (Reddog Leather in Kentucky) made a rig for my wife with an curved belt that fits properly. She was very pleased with it.
  6. The Weirauch revolver is the EAA Bounty Hunter. I understood that the Heritage Big Bore is assembled and finished in the USA with parts manufactured by Pietta.
  7. Either we judge the shooter’s intent or we don’t. Otherwise we are in a place where “we don’t judge intent, unless it’s obvious which target the shooter is attempting to hit”. I think we make that “policy choice” and then live with the consequences.
  8. I recall that they announced “improved fit” and it seems that the neck area is a little better, comparing one early shift to others I bought later. Even so, I order one size up from my usual size. Works for me.
  9. They don’t teach geography in school any more!
  10. I’ve been shooting a Uberti 1873 (Cody Conagher action work) for a little over 10 years. It’s a .357 and I had been looking to add a .44-40 to the stable. In December I found a Winchester/Miroku in a local gun store. It’s the basic rifle with a 20” round barrel and a blued receiver. As others said, smoother than a stock Uberti and the lever travel is pretty similar to that of my “Codymatic”. I had an aftermarket lever safety spring installed and had a local gunsmith smooth up the internals and lighten the stock springs. The Miroku is fine for me, but I’m a middle of
  11. There were a couple of “prospects” hanging out with my posse last Sunday. One has been emailing me and Scarlett. He’s already loading .38 Special so assuming he has primers laid by it should be an easy transition. He asked where we buy clothing. From Kitty’s Kloset, of course!
  12. Maximum velocity for Wild Bunch rifle ammo is (as in cowboy) 1400 FPS. As others have said, bullet weight and material must also be compliant. A friend attended a recent event sponsored by Palmetto State Armory that showcased some new products, including a lead free composite bullet that can be used on steel targets at close range. I ended up calling a company rep to talk about the product. Most of their bullets are powdered copper in polymer; not legal under current SASS rules but maybe an option for the future. The use of copper makes the bullets lighter than usual
