  1. I'll have to mention that one next I see him.
  2. Y'all got one that works with osage? We got a new shooter from Osage country and he'd like to come up with something incorporating that. I'm not too good at naming things.
  3. Watched! I think I went to school with the hat creasing girl's sister.....
  4. Ha! I was hoping you uploaded a new video. I've watched them all. And I really like your format. Been subscribed for a while. I'll remain subbed for a while longer.
  5. One question....What's the Coke for? I understand the whiskey but Coke? Y'all are butchering yer liquor, that or you need better liquor.
  6. Test fired. It still works! Thanks again OLG, that was a great tip. I'm gonna keep playing with this and see how good I can get it.
  7. I know! Right?! Kill you with cuteness! I view the bend as more of a slide. Perhaps I should stop cutting in line....
  8. Better! This one has a cute girl in it singing! Again from the delightfully weird Japan too!
  9. I don't know about wet tumbling. I use a brass polish mixed in with walnut shells in my tumbler. It doesn't get as shiny as new but it does stay that way for a long time.
  10. Just sharing the love. I've got another that'll kill you with cuteness! Wanna see it?
  11. When I talked to them they said that the competition springs are now standard on all models. OLG, I did have a 1911 hammer spring that I wasn't using. I got it cut down quite a bit but it works. It's still a bit stiff but it's better than what came on it. I'm planning on shooting it and maybe cutting another loop or two today. I'm making sure that the cut end pushes on the larger part of the guide rod. I nearly messed up big time. I was installing the new spring when it slipped and the smaller end of the guide rod shot off to parts unknown. I found it the hard way, I stepped on it. Luckily the nerves in that foot are dead so it didn't hurt. I just heard it scraping on the floor.
  12. Hmm.... I think I may have one to be honest. I'll have to check. Thanks OLG That'll give me something to do for a while.
  13. So, someone sent this to me. This thread brought it to mind......sorry.
  14. I'm checking Brownells and I can get a 17lb Wolff Hammer Spring. Would a reduced power spring hurt me at all here? I think stock that spring is supposed to be 21 or 22lbs. How much did you cut yours down? If you don't mind me asking. I had called Bond earlier today to ask about that. They said that the Mini45 already has their lightest springs but that it'll ease up in time. They said that all of their guns come with the competition springs already installed.
  15. Well, I got one, a Mini .45. I like it but I think it can be better than what it currently is. I was wondering if anyone has slicked up their derringer. What I'm wondering is, lightening the trigger and hammer springs. Right now it's harder to pull the hammer back on it than both of my main match guns combined. If I could lighten the springs a bit I think I'll be happy. I'm sure I could probably take a loop or two out of the hammer spring but I don't know about the trigger. I'd much rather do the work myself so that if something goes wrong I only have myself to blame. So, any tips or know where I can get reduced power springs?
  16. Naw, Was working with cedar. That has to be the itchiest danged wood.
  17. I guess I'm the odd man out here. I have a lot of wool clothing and never found it to be itchy. Wool trousers, shirts, coats, scarves, socks, etc. Guess I just got good quality stuff that they took the itch out of. I've got a wool blanket that's itchy but I think that's because of some sawdust that got into it.
  18. In my club our mascot is a squirrel. Clean matches get a white squirrel pin, disastrous matches may earn a black squirrel pin. As far as awards, we've had "customized" poker chips, as well as steel squirrel trophies, and other such things. At another match I won a couple of plaques that were laser engraved. I'm sure you'll find something. Just use a little imagination.
  19. I know. I'm just cheap and wanted to see if anyone wanted mine before I went and bought another barrel.
  20. I've dove hunted with my double. That was a lot of fun. I've also taken my Marlin .357mag out hog hunting. With the loads I worked up hogs drop like they've been hit by a cannon. 168gr RNFP traveling at about 1500fps with gaschecks. As long as I stay withing 100 yards I'm good. I wouldn't hesitate to take it deer hunting. Cycles my hunting rounds the same as my CAS rounds.
  21. While I don't go to the range often I do head out back and practice a couple times a month with my Springfield XD40 service model, my RIA 1911a1, Garand, Rem 700 in .270, and with my Mosin Nagant M44.
  22. Need speed loading clips for rapid reloading as well. Don't forget scope mounts, bi-pod mounts, and flash hider.
  23. Tried it. Would not convert my John Wayne movies. I'll try an off the shelf version. If that doesn't work I'll just get a good case and take the disks with me.
  24. Oh, I've thought of that. Space is my main concern. That and forgetting they're in there and letting them get damaged. I use one for CDs in my truck. I could use it in a pinch for dvds but I'd rather just copy a bunch of my movies and just have to worry about a cheap thumb drive.
