  1. Before you take it to a smith, check out the smith to be sure they are full service or merely a parts changer and slightly fixer-upper. This is beyond basic smithing. When in doubt, try bailing wire and duct tape.
  2. Thanks for letting us know. Praying for the family and our nation.
  3. With the recent politics, there has been a great increase in buying guns and buying ammunition. Lots of first-time gun owners! And with a new gun, they need some ammo. Plus everyone has been stocking up - to be prepared - prepared for shortages like this -prepared for break down of law and order - a few preparing to break down law and order. (sadly) This has been cyclic for many years but has gotten much worse since the Clinton's and continued talk of gun control as the left has gained more political power.
  4. Common sense was once common, but was never universal. For all have sinned and fallen short of God's standard.
  5. The vast majority of clubs would love to have new shooters attend their match!
  6. Not that our society has gone "law-suit" crazy or anything... So if they record it and someone can watch the crime and likely do nothing about it, that is good. But if they record it so they can possibly catch a criminal - that is bad. I'm reminded of Cicero, "More laws, less justice."
  7. Reminds me of a range in a suburb where the club was forced by the city to allow their police to practice there one day a week. (No other club members were allowed and we were all warned NOT to do what the police were doing.) Then it was expanded to 2 days per week - and only police allowed. A jogger was running a little over a mile away when he heard "bees" and then one "stung" his leg. It was a 45 ACP bee. Of course his insurance insisted that he sue so he did. He lived in Fort Worth, adjacent to the next city's range. The Fort Worth police investigated and found that the local police were throwing cans in the air and shooting them with their pistols. They almost closed the range but the range officials met with them and explained their safety rules. The end result is that unsafe shooters were banned from the range - including and the local police. So we got our range back all week! (That was over 20 years ago and fortunately police everywhere have greatly improved their training.)
  8. Cheer up! According to the theory of evolution, eventually a tornado or hurricane will build a good stage or house for you!
  9. As Phantom says, if your holsters are at least slightly forward of the hips and the angle is such that the barrel is slightly forward of the grip (normally 15 - 20 Degrees) you gun is essentially always pointing down range while drawing and reholstering. Quite a few really good holster makers. They key for most of us is to allow the holster to be slide along the belt, but have some way to then lock them where you want them for your body. Your girth, arm length and flexibility will factor in where the holsters will work best for you. As we get a little older, we find we don't like holster exactly at 3 and 9 o'clock due to flexibility - and speed. (That is why most do not do as well with the buscadero rigs since the holster position is fixed on them by design - but you can get them custom made but will not have future flexibility.) I used Chicago screws through the holster and belt to lock my holsters where they work best for me.
  10. I know many shooters like to see where they ranked on individual stages. So when I do the scores, I include the rand for each stage but do not show the total rank points as it is no longer used. But knowing how you did on individual stages is nice.
  11. I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous. . . .

  13. Nothing a little duct tape and bailing wire wouldn't fix!!
  14. As Outlaw G said, it is the spring that activates the safety lock function for the pump action. http://marauder.homestead.com/files/97parts.htm If the spring gets very dirty and hangs up, the action will not open properly.
  15. Joe summed it up very nicely. As noted, most Ubertis will be pretty nice although over sprung. A few others will need a little more work.
  16. I actually disagree with "shoot the rifle a while" because some of the springs are too strong. The best example of that are the lifter/lever springs. The strong spring WILL wear your lever. Do you want to have to replace or repair your lever? (I had to.) The hammer spring is not as critical, but it will increase wear. These are easy to swap out. You can then shoot the gun with reduced wear. Then decide where you may or may not want to go.
  17. Very sad. But WHO wants their Covid restrictions to never go away. So sad So viscous. Pray for our nation. Vote for those who oppose this sort of socialistic dictatorship.
  18. Ask and answered. There are some folks who want to spread BS so they can do as they wish even if against the rules.
