  1. Sue...This is Arizona calling...You can shoot every weekend...Your pipes will never freeze...And Shanley can wear short pants.
  2. I plan on at least a couple of hours of uninterrupted reloading time while the Oscars keep my wife occupied tonight. I wish they were on more often.
  3. Hee Haw old timer. WAY TO GO! By the way, that ain't no participation ribbon you're holdin' either.
  4. Long Hunter, but he told me he would only take it if it was brand new and untouched inside. Best to contact him through his website: longhunt.com.
  5. The plates just sprung back like Count Sandor said. Given that the metal face has stretched as Snakebite noted, just pressing on them won't actually do anything permanent. His rolling method is probably your best bet.
  6. This above would be the answer. We had one of our volunteers take some of Winter Range's targets to flatten on a hydraulic shop press and it was no-go.
  7. This is the answer. Either a .357 or .45 Colt would be my choice over the .44. In my experience, both of those are accurate over a wider range of loads than the .44. I like the .45 Colt, it seems like no matter what I load it is accurate enough for me.
  8. Hey Capt Dan, DON"T EVER handle one of his Charles Daly SxS's. Your life will change forever!
  9. I'm currently loading 35 grains (by weight) of APP with 7/8 ounce of reclaimed shot. I usually use whatever wads make for a good fit, right now it's Claybuster Lightnings. Plenty of smoke and the knockdowns are usually down when the smoke clears.
  10. Listen to what Jabez Cowboy says. I bought a Browning 92 (.357) from a former National Champion that had 3 distinct bulges just forward of the rear sight. That area sees higher pressures than the muzzle end. I shot that rifle monthly for the next seven years without a problem, then sold it to another cowboy who is still shooting it.
  11. Do this. I even switched to nickel shells for my bp sub loads. The pressures are low enough that I haven't split even one yet. Wash...Dry...Reload.
  12. They are usually favored by duelists and gunfighters. The fatter top seems to position the thumb better for one handed shooting. Not sure if of two-handed shooters find them advantageous.
  13. Rumor has it that his wife picked it up for him at either Hobby Lobby or Michael's. I know he wouldn't be caught dead in either place.
