  1. Both pietta and uberti have put out junk and quality depending on when it was built. if your looking at used. If your looking at new currently I'd put pietta ahead. As John said I'd put the great western 2 as the best out of the box currently being imported.
  2. I have had hinges blown off or packed so full of lead the target can't be reset with out being torn down. The others were launchers. The arm and pad took the brunt. Neither part is designed to take a shotgun blast
  3. No I never said that. I said shooting downed targets can create issues. I've had to fix several targets due to being shot while down.
  4. It can be a issue. I'd say a solid 90% of the shooters i have told to shoot where the target was, still shot the downed target. It seems that it's a hard concept to grasp to many. This can result in splash back or damage to targets I wouldn't make it the rule but I also do on occasion write stages where it is exact round count for shotgun. No makeups, It adds variety.
  5. I'll did through what I have and see. I don't reload shotgun much anymore but I'm pretty sure i still have some 209s floating around
  6. Not all. Several of us use an eye for each gun.
  7. It's really easy to load and you can get the components cheaper than buying factory. I sold my sharps a few years ago but I may still have some brass and lead. I'll check and let you know
  8. My father for one. He quit shooting sass because people kept pushing him to try to shoot faster. He was out to enjoy shooting the guns. Would walk between guns laugh and have fun. He could shoot a hell of a lot faster but didn't care to. Not everybody is here to shoot fast. Not everybody gives a hoot about the time. I shoot a single shot shotgun from time to time because it's fun. Even won matches with it over state champion quality shooters. Took 4th place at regionals with a bone stock steoger, a very well used non short stroked uberti 73 and a pair of vaqueros that onl
  9. I'll keep you in mind for the next ones we get in. I've enough for our needs and an extra. I've had probably 20 in the last few years that came home with me. There just isnt much of a market around us. With my wife preferring them, and now the kids too, I try to keep 5 or 6 around.
  10. In mn the going rate is about 350. Depending on condition. A couple weeks ago I was at an auction and picked up a clean one for the kids to shoot for 275 . Screw in chokes would detract from the value a bit around here. We still see a couple a month come in at the store.
  11. Limit 3 boxes $13 per box.
  12. I have several different systems a camera that sends a pic to my phone when somebody enters the drive. As well as a bull at the end of the drive. He bellows anytime someone passes his pen which sets off the dogs which generally lets me know to pick up my phone because I'm about to get a notice from the camera.
  13. We stocked up this weekend at the local farm/hardware store. Armscor 50rds for 2.99
  14. I started wet tumbling this year with a trick I learned from Jerry miculek. I use an old cement mixer I picked up at an auction cheap. One batch and they are all done. I dry on an old screen door on saw horses out in the sun. So far I like how it works.
  15. I've not made any in .44 so can't expound on that. However I've made .357 out of brass, aluminum, titanium, stainless, delron.. sp?, as well as several different alloys. What are you looking to get out of it? Aluminum will be lighter but unless hard coated it will wear a ton faster. I usually will swap mine out about every 20k I do have a new type of hard coat that is running over 40k with minimal wear. Brass has less issues over all to me. Lightened makes it close to aluminum in weight but stronger. My recommendation. Stick with brass
  16. So my daughter is too petite for even the youth stock on her henry. She really wants to shoot like mom and dad. So tonight's project was cutting down the stock. She picked it up and was able to run off 10 no problem. Before I had to cycle the action for her after every shot. Great... but she said ouch as she was poked in the cheek. Hmmm project number two.. grabbed a deer hide I kept from my first deer and made a butt cover. I am no leather crafter but it will work for now. While I was at it I quickly made a small ammo pouch for her.
  17. I've 13 new shooters from my classes over winter that want to shoot. Unfortunately do to current cost of ammo and guns I think most won't make it to the range
  18. I'll always keep a few hunting and long range, that aren't sass approved but other than that very rarely is there a semi auto at the house. My 3 gun firearms are stored at the shop as are the ones with the fun switch. If somebody breaks into your house and you empty a 30 round mag there is no way you will ever win that lawsuit. Any time i see somebody write crap like " I have 50 mags and a 45 because they don't make a 46, " i just shake my head. If you ever use a gun to defend yourself good luck keeping those posts out of the trial. You will paint yourself as somebody looking f
  19. No I do not. I pay 46.50 per 1k Non coated is normally about $7 per k less than that. Ive never bought from mo bullets so couldn't say on that.
  20. They look like a good product, however at double what I currently pay. I'll stick with my supplier for now
  21. Because the guns were used a lot, bent mag tubes were a lot harder to replace back then. They didn't have next day shipping
  22. In normal times, 9mm and .223 is cheap enough that it really isn't that much advantage to reload when shooting large round counts. I was at an auction yesterday. Ammo prices were insane. Better than a dollar a round for 9, 45, .223, 7.62. 30 cents a round for .22. The real kicker. .410 slugs. $120 per box of 5 rounds.
  23. Looking for one I can cut down for my daughter. She shot her first match last sat and the youth stock we have is too long. She is a petite 8 yr old. Thanks for any help
