  1. 44 balls - +1 on Whyte Leather Works. wads/lube - if you use APP, not required for what we do. If you don’t use APP, rethink that decision. reloading stand - I absolutely love my tower of power. Biglube.com Powder flask- brass gets wet in the mornings and powder sticks to it and makes our morning shooting problematic. You may get a chamber w/o powder. Use a dipper or pre-measure using 5cc centrifuge tubes. Super cheap from China via Amazon or EBay. caps - http://guntoters.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Percussion-Caps-and-Nipples2.pdf. Read Mako’s chart. Slix nipples require the 0.166 ID caps. Rem 10 is the best I’ve used. I have a friend that likes he RWS 1075 caps better. Haven’t tried them yet. I am finding CCI 11s at Scheels. No Remington yet. wrench - if using slix, then Ted Cash wrench is decent or cut your own from a 1/4” drive socket. keep the questions coming. Hope this helps.
  2. No, they let the samsonite gorilla handle the package and then took it upon themselves to inspect what was inside because I was a fool and insured the package.
  3. I went through a “wonderful” experience with USPS in the fall of 2019 to ship my ROAs to Goon’s gunworks. Regardless of the USPS shipping codes, it it up to the interpretation of the post master. Even when their shipping codes state they cannot regulate like the BATFE. It will be extremely frustrating. I eventually got them back after I solicited assistance from my state senator to get them out of their gun jail. I wish there was a better way to deal with their ignorance of firearms and non-firearms.
  4. Good review. I watched it twice already. I'm aligned with your rating. Not horrible, good action. There are many worse Netflix westerns I’ve turned off because the acting was just painful to watch.
  5. Ruger New Vaquero 4 5/8” barrel 45 Colt. $900 shipped from my FFL to your FFL.
  6. Sad news. I remember he was very proud of the frontiersman tables he made for the stages at HoW. I enjoyed his grief because I didn't use real black. He will be missed. RIP.
  7. Praying for an anonymous package in the mail with your screw knife in it.
  8. Not sure what this is. The serial number is 18. Several pieces have 18 stamped into it. Dragoon? Walker? OBTW, asking for a friend.
  9. Of my three, long hunter - codymatic- T star leather, t star is my favorite for looks. Function: I can’t tell any difference between them.
  10. With the costs of fixed sight models, it might finally be worth the machinist’s bill to mill off the adjustable rear sight.
  11. You gotta set up the alerts like he does if you want a set of vaqueros before he gets them.
  12. Hoyt Axton told not to feed them after midnight or get them wet.
  13. The shooter is asking for help, not to be scolded and assume because he wants to be a c&b shooter that he won’t work. Look up captain George Baylor’s website for frontiersman for dummies. Great start. other good info here. Find a local frontiersman mentor. Mine have been invaluable. There’s so much to frontiersman. That’s why I enjoy the challenge. if needed pm me phone # or other contact info for specific questions/tips.
  14. I sure wish I had known about cowboy action shooting when I was stationed in Ballston Spa at the prototypes.
  15. Griff nailed it. You have almost no risk with your tiny 38 short loads. I eye ball what Lee dipper I should use to load 38 shorts for my derringer. So 125gr RNFP (cause it’s what I got handy) and eye ball the APP load has worked just fine in my Bond. Doubt you will have different results in your cartridge revolver.
  16. This was a great shooting vacation. The range was ready for the shooters. Bar 3 was ready to host the shooters. Always a match official handy to assist in needs of the shooters. For my wife that is not a shooter, there was plenty of entertainment for us. The planned music and mounted shooting was a blast. The entire weekend was a success. Great venue. It is very obvious that Bar 3 has put in a tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears into the range. CaC will remain on my annual shoot list.
