  1. That's really cool! I like the 2 sizes of bores.

    Does it have a Liege proof mark?

    If so, I would love to see a photo of it.

    I'm not in the market, but I've been to Liege, and I get excited when someone sells a gun that's been proofed there.

    I enjoy checking out all of the unusual guns you offer, too.

    Best wishes on your sale.

    While traveling in Germany, we passed a huge IKEA factory. The parking lot was full of hundreds and hundreds of log trailers with large (looked like 3' diameter) light-colored wood logs, waiting to be processed.

    When they arrived in Prague, the locals took down all of the street signs. The city streets are so narrow and twisty, the tanks got lost, and had no addresses to use as landmarks. Things went downhill from there.

    Besides SASS, I shoot flintlocks, and belong to the Muzzleloader Forum.

    I don't know anybody, and have no dog in this hunt, so good luck with your search.

    I've shown a couple of folks some of the ads on different forums, but never hear if anything works out.

    If you make a deal, I would appreciate it if you could let me know that this worked out.

    Make good smoke,

    I've enjoyed looking at all of these postings, regardless of their name.


    Pat Riot, would you please post a meme, even if it's a copy, so I'll know which ones don't belong here?

    It may just be that the posters know not how they offend.



  6. I just discovered the advantage of my apparent "genius" decision.

    Like others, I ended my land line years ago, once the whole family got cell phones. I took the land line number for my cell number, so no loss of solicitor calls (or friends).


    Today, my cell phone service (T-mobile) went out, and I can't call to report it.

    However, my internet service is with ATT, and it still works.

    So, my (unintended) genius decision was to use different providers for phone and internet, so that if one goes down, the other should still work.

    This is probably an old idea to lots of folks, but if not, I hope you find it useful.

  7. Howdy, Okie,

    About 15 years ago on ebay, you could get working antique pocket watches all day for $100 - $125. I bought several.

    I don't even look now. (Actually, I just looked, and there are a bunch to choose from for under $100).

    I wore them until they stopped working, then I would carry a different one.

    The problem with antiques, the main spring is old, and it loses its "springiness", and, even after cleaning, the watch starts to run slowly, or stops altogether.

    After that happened to a bunch of them, I went to our neighborhood sutler, the Mart from Wal, and bought a $10 pocket watch. 

    It worked a couple of years, and then stopped working. So I bought another one.

    They're cheap enough that, if someone admires it, you can give it to them, and look like a good guy. 

    But, for a celebration or party, I still wear an antique, just 'cause they look so cool!

  8. One of my favorite movie lines was Moses coming down from the burning bush with 3 tablets, saying,

    "I bring to you these fifteen..." as he drops and breaks a tablet,

    "these TEN Commandments".

    Howdy, Celtic Cowboy,

    As a new poster here, you didn't have any points towards winning the Cadillac, so I gave you one. That's the little number under Members, under your name.

    I don't know how many points you have to have, since nobody has won it yet. I'm not even sure there really is a Caddy, but you never know!

    Welcome to CAS. I hope you have as much fun as we do!
