    I'm not sure.  When I was at Cimarron we had to make trips with the trailer to the customs area at the Austin airport to pick up shipments from Uberti.  On the other hand I do know the Chinese shotguns definitely came over on a boat.



    But was it a slow boat?  :D:D:D

  3. Big Boston, ALL 97s have short chambers as they were maid from roll crimped cartridges.  No stock 97 measure for modern 2 3/4 shells but they generally allow enough room to safely shoot modern shells with just a slight increase in pressure and felt recoil.


    I'm a little surprised to hear your was that short though.

  4. Recently Chrysler (and the other automakers) became known as insurance companies that also made some cars and trucks.


    We need a balance of responsibility between management and workers.  Workers should be paid according to the value of their production.

    Companies should price accordingly.


    For a classic study of good business sense mixed with effective  concern for the entire community, check out the Bible's guidance for farmers in the Old Testament.  A fascinating and ingenious optimization of labor, production and community. 


    Lev 23: 7 & 22


    7 - Don't overwork your workers


    22 ‘When you reap the harvest of your land, moreover, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the needy and the alien. I am the LORD your God.’"


    Allow those who can to gather their own food for their livelihood and their self respect.


    Neither greed or sloth.

    Shooters seem to forget that the ground is a perfectly place to stage a malfunctioning firearm.


    That's if you can reach it!!

    Some of us would need a LOT of help after setting it there. :D:D:D

  6. The rules are a great start, foundational. 

    Add the overall guidance to maintain safety. 

    Finally use logic (I didn't say commonsense, since it is no longer comm) to combine the former two concerning safety and penalties, etc.

    Remember that it is impossible for the rules to include every situation - even if all stages were required to be the same every time (Do you want that?).  When we attempt to do that, you get the IRS code including many conflicting rules.


    If we are too eager to penalize a safe solution, what are we encouraging?


    Thanks again, Palewolf!

  7. There are now some really good rust preventatives out.  They are very helpful for regular arn**, steel and stainless steel.


    I believe there is a version of WD40 that works quite well - not the standard stuff.


    I've used several marine type stuff but have had great luck recently with Frog Lube to avoid rust.

    Clean your metal thoroughly to remove rust.  You may need to use fine steel wool, then a good cleaner or alcohol. 

    (Be sure not to drink it all -  put some on the metal.)


    Then coat the tube,  spring and follower with the anti-rust stuff.





    **Arn - a metal often purchased in Oklahoma

    A bit, but it also compresses the ball, squeezes, it tight in the chamber. I also use a wonder wad under the ball. No chain fires after 10 years.


    But what if you have to use them before 10 years???
