  1. I really like my Uberti. It's very smooth, reliable, and accurate. What it isn't, is pretty. Why, because it's had tens of thousands of rounds through it in competition. It's been rained on, dropped on props, bounced around in a gun cart, had a shotgun or three dropped down on top of it (not necessarily on purpose). It hasn't hit the ground yet, knock on wood, but my shotgun has and if I shoot long enough the rifle will probably end up on the ground at some point. That's a beautiful gun, both the wood and the case hardening. I wouldn't want to shoot it in a match.
  2. Are you interested in selling it without the stock? Do you know if 1873 and 1866 stocks are interchangeable?
  3. No, but an annual crawdad boil with Dixie beer would be nice. Know any Cajuns who can cook up crawdads?
  4. Mike at Goon Gun works will start work on my pair of Sheriff's model 1851 Navys in February. I plan to pair them with either an Uberti 1866 or an Uberti 1873 in 45 colt. I won't need to worry about mixing up pistol and rifle ammo, and if I anneal my brass, clean up in the rifle should be easy. If I want I can add a set of Vaqueros in 45 colt and I'll be set for Classic Cowboy too.
  5. This is a 'must go' on my list. Sharyn and I will both be there.
  6. LOL. You already have two dozen T-Square. How many do you need?
  7. Definitely a case of 'systemic' whiteness. Clearly caused by climate change and probably some type of phobia or 'ism'.
  8. I appreciate the info! I've already spoken with Mike and worked out a deal though. He's local to me, only about 45 minutes away, so I won't be dropping the guns off until he's ready to do the work.
  9. I sold the ASM Army and bought another Pietta Navy. I'm probably going to have Mike at Goons Gun Works slick them up some.
  10. Yep. Pretty tough cutting through that stuff. 'Luckily' he had another option.
  11. Just one more mornin I had to wake up with the blues
  12. Probably the best song writing duo in history right there. The name of the album is very appropriate for this forum.
  13. Yep! Shells must be at or below the belly button.
  14. What is wrong with his shotgun ammo belt and with having belts with buckles in the back? CC Costume requirements. SHB page 7 Must choose at least five of the requirements listed below, and all clothing items must be worn appropriately during all shooting events and awards ceremonies. Chaps, western spurs with rowels and spur straps, cuffs, tie or scarf worn loosely around the neck or with scarf slide, vest, pocket watch with full length chain, jacket, sleeve garters, knife (screw knives do NOT qualify), botas, leggings, or braces. No Straw or Palm ha
  15. The gun my father gave me is ready to go. The one I bought needs a little more more work on the bore, but it's pretty much ready. I have the caps for several matches, plus enough on order for probably all of 2021. I need to talk to @Scarlettand buy a few pounds of 2ff APP when our schedules next cross. I also need a source for .44 balls. Any suggestions?
