  1. Much better than trying it with a live mule!
  2. Remember, back then didn't have custom work from the factory - Oh, they did? And there were no gunsmiths available. . Oh, there were? The gunsmiths had very rudimentary tools and little knowledge or skill. Really? Many cowboys didn't even own their guns but were issued them by the ranch, etc. Others actually practiced a fair amount and wanted their guns to fit their individual needs.
  3. Remember, they (leadership and too many followers) are leftists, so they hate the actual constitution except for when they can use it to achieve their communist/fascist plans. The despise and distrust personal freedom. They have begun to finally admit their hatred of the constitution or any constitutional court decisions.
  4. It is kinda odd that so many of the original 13 states have turned from God and freedom and returned to a form of their colony/serfdom. Pray for your leaders. Watch the local party and local elections including "non-partisan" like school boards.
  5. What I've learned from some of the comments. If it is pointed down range as you got to the stage, it is okay. If it is pointed down range as you leave the stage it is a DQ. So if a crowd is watching, it is okay to point the gun in their direction as I leave the shooting line. Have I got that right?
  6. If you change from standard to magnum, you will get the same velocity if you decrease the load by about 2/10 of a grain - that is assuming that your load is not so light that the reduction will lead to inconsistency. So generally, you will not notice a difference between the two. But as mentioned, you may get more consistency, especially in colder weather, as others have mentioned. But many have said that with their tuned guns, the magnums were not quite as reliably in firing.
  7. About 2/10's of a grain difference in powder to get the same result. Since we don't go near max loads, they are safe. In some cases the mag primers are just a little more difficult to work as to hammer strength. So if you are set for very light hammer, you may need to slightly increase it.
  8. Anything worst saying, is worth sayin' twice.
  9. Don't forget the Bo Diddly sweep. It is kinda like the Whatz it Called Sweep, but in reverse. Not to be compared to the Super Secret Sweep.
  10. Check into Commodore Perry Owens. He used a rifle a lot in keeping the peace. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perry_Owens See the Belvins arrest.
  11. What Larsen said. The guns are not all alike. Some will allow you to remove it but many require removing the grip. After a few times doing it, it isn't too hard to take the grip off and put it back. Not actually easy, but doable - with some patience.
  12. Cool! I never would a guess they had those kind of lights back then!
  13. Consider that the 380 pistols are almost always a blow-back design. That makes them have more felt recoil. Nearly 9 mm have some form of delayed process that helps absorb felt recoil. That is why the 380 is so snappy compared to even small 9mm pistols. I've been very happy with my Taurus GX4 for when I don't worry about covering my Glock 19. So check out a variety of the great new small 9mms to see what fits your hand best.
  14. One of the problems with CUP (and LUP) is that they are essentially averages. The pressure is measure by how much a sample of copper (or lead) is deformed at the end of the test. So you don't know of any short pressure peaks. PSI can give a much more complete picture of the pressures though out the test - not instantaneous, but much closer to that. So after the industry started using PSI gauges, they noted that some loads had much higher pressure spikes than they would have thought. A pressure spike for a short duration will deform the copper but doesn't really measure the full shock to the chamber, barrel and gun. So one this was discovered, many loads were reduced to reduce wear and risk. When you are shooting, you can sometimes feel the difference in recoil - it is sometimes very "snappy" with higher but shorter peaks - other times it is more of a push and slightly longer duration.
  15. https://sbgwllc.com/shop/66-style-uberti-1873-loading-gate-all-calibers/ It appears to be available. Make sure your rifle serial number starts with W. The older version had slightly different size and I think the screw differed as well.
  16. That is one reason you should be practicing while on the speaker option of your phone. Very important when doing some with safety concerns such as shooting - or DRIVING.
  17. First, look at his link, then try: https://www.shootingillustrated.com/content/it-s-90-percent-mental/ Sometimes when you post an entire link it gives too much (unneeded) information about your email. The 90% idea is true IF... if your are strong and healthy. It does take some strength to properly and efficiently handle guns. Plus move, plus have the required endurance for a match. So it takes both mental and physical conditioning - just ask some of us older folk.
  18. Good stuff for prevention. I'm using FrogLube or Seal 1 for that now. The Seal 1 seems to work well as a lube too, Folks complained that Frog Lube would sometimes gum up things a bit, especially if you didn't take essentially all of it off. So I use in on my 97 and it has stopped the rust even in rainy weather.
  19. In answer to your question, yes, you got it!
  20. Nice! I won't ask which is yours.
  21. It can also help to make both 9mm and 38 bullets. Then just resize appropriately before coating.
