  1. I’ll just extended my life expectancy another 10 years and ordered $1,000 plus. If I’m wrong my 35 yo son is a winner. AR
  2. Paracord with a “Manny Method” splice Allows you to have 2 colors on 1 boot. Then 2 more colors on the 2nd boot. BOYS sure are fun. Amarillo Rattler
  3. My dry fire hulls: Deprimed AA Winchester, cut to 2 3/8” OAL, Fill the primer pocket with Red Silicone Gasket Maker, dry overnight, shave off excess with razor blade, Roll crimp the hull. No wad or lead Simulates a fired hull for shucking. 6-10 on the belt. SG on a table. ATB, pickup SG, load 2 from belt. Pull trigger twice, open and shuck, Load 2 from belt, pull trigger twice. I started with par time of 8 seconds, now down to par time of 5.25 seconds. Practice 4-10 sequences in the morning before loading guns in PU for match. Amarillo Rattler
  4. Start ‘em young and start ‘em on Black! They will never look back. Just sayin’ Amarillo Rattler
  5. 1,000s of BP 44-40 on a Dillon Square Deal. Recently attached a 10 ga wire to a 10’ copper grounding rod to the Dillon so I could run the full progressive cycle, Instead of charging the primed brass on a Lyman 55. Happy reloader now. Just sayin’ Amarilo Rattler
  6. Only Black Powder for 12 years plus. 1st step in cleaning is packing the bottom of the carrier with a wad of paper towel at the follower level before spraying the diluted Windex with vinegar down the chamber and muzzle. Wait 5-10 minutes to clean the bore( Remington Squeegee, then 10 strokes of wet nylon brush, then 5 dry patches, then Bore Butter on a bore swab). Remove the moist paper towel from the bottom of the carrier. Wipe all surfaces with a dry paper towel patch held with a hemostat. Spray the receiver with Eezox. Has worked for 10 years plus for me. Clean as a WHISTLE! Amarillo Rattler
  7. IMHO, lead composition is the biggest factor in richocets and injury. No scientific evidence to back me up, only anectodal and personal experiences. My pure lead C&B, and 20/1, projectiles have never been reported by Posse members to cause splatter My reclaimed and new lead SG shot does produce splatter that hits me and others. Both have antimony in the mix. When I have been hit while another Pard was shootin' rifle or revolver, he said "hard cast" each time I asked. Just sayin' Amarillo Rattler
  8. PM sent on Stoeger Supreme. Amarillo Rattler
  9. Goody, Do your prices include shipping, or is the shipping added to your prices? Thanks Amarillo Rattler
  10. I think his C&B inventory will drastically increase with the new mobility!!!! Speedy recovery and watch your tongue at the first therapy session!!! I know!!! Amarillo Rattler
  11. Top gun 1sg, I'll take 'em. PM sent for payment and shipping addresses. Thanks, Amarillo Rattler
  12. Dawg, I am changing the 1860 Armys 8" barrels I bought from you 3+'years ago and Rowdy Yates did the full work on 'em. I installed the Birdshead grips I bought from you recently. Perfect fit, thank you again. Bought 4 7/8" 1851 Navy barrels. Sending the barrels and frames to Colorado Coffinmaker for his magic fitting the barrels to the frames. The term "Kit Guns" comes to mind. See ya' Amarillo Rattler
