  1. There aren't many aftermarket parts available, but there are LOTS of repair or replacement parts out there, at least for the 85. Ebay and Gunbroker are a good source. Mostly parts from damaged guns I presume, but you can find individual parts, to packages with literally everything except the frame. I recently picked up a Model 85 3" barrel to replace a 2" barrel, (I just like the 3" barrel version). I've also acquired a couple hammers to bob, and a trigger assembly or two.
  2. The Columbus Ohio PD STILL uses that setup. Sam Brown belt WITH shoulder strap, flap holster, and a white shirt. AND eight point hat.
  3. I have a half dozen of the older Taurus 85s. Two of them are the concealed hammer version. There isn't a hammer spur to catch on anything, but this renders the gun to a DA only configuration. I figure at self defence distances it shouldn't be a problem, though. If you were to get one, and decide you didn't like it, there are plenty of parts available on Gunbroker and ebay to replace the bobbed hammer with a conventional hammer, or take a conventional hammer and cut the spur, as in post #2, so that it still retains the capability to cock the hammer.
  4. People like that just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
  5. Make them black and you can call them "tactical".
  6. Okay, you are correct sir. I guess I DID ask two seperate questions. And several did answer to the love of the sport, so I consider that part at least partially settled. As to the second part, again I think Chief Rick came closest, but I understand Doc Ward's reasoning. too. A couple others said to be part of a crowd, or because somebody else does. I suppose that I, along with a few others, will have to be satisfied with that.
  7. Maybe I'll just have to live with that. And Rye, I still love ya.
  8. As I just posted, I can understand love of the game. I don't get team fandom. Nobody has responded with "I love XXX team because..." Maybe my question wasn't clear. but that's what I want to understand.
  9. I understand the love of game, it's the love of a specific team that I don't get. It's not like they're your "Hometown" team, even though they play there. With one or two notable exceptions, the team members aren't from there. It's the same, if not more so, with college teams. These guys are, supposedly, there for school. Once that's done, they're going somewhere else. If I had a son playing there, it would be a totally different story, but when he moved on, so would I.
  10. Well, they WERE Pilgrims, so yeah. that is a bit of an extreme example. But I still haven't seen a good example of why the fandom. Granted, you, as well as a couple others have told of being taken to games and family tradition, as it were, but it still doesn't give me any insight to why. . Chief Rick may have come closest with "something psychological." I note that no less than Forty Rod and Alpo don't understand it either. I could be in worse company.
  11. Let me give an example of the rabid fandom I'm talking about. When I was stationed at the old N.A.S. South Weymouth in Massachusetts, when any of the local Reservists were on duty, all one had to say was that mention that the Celtics, Patriots, or Red Sox had lost last nights game, just mention the loss with NO other comment, and at least two of them would be on their feet literally ready to fight over it. Why?
  12. I have mentioned in other posts that I have no interest in sports. I don't watch football, basketball, baseball, hockey, NASCAR, wrestling, or soccer. I grew up in Columbus Ohio having OSU, (before it became THE! Ohio State University) sports rammed down my throat. My father even told me that I was named Craig because he thought that the name Craig Roberts would sound good over the speakers in OSU stadium. My whole family was into OSU fandam, and most family gatherings quickly turned from celebrating whatever holiday or event that had brought us together to "SHHH we're wat
  13. Blame it on the Oprazation of the American woman. Bad decisions went from "Why did you do that? You're better than that." to "It's not your fault, blame HIM". It encouraged people to not take responsibility for their actions, and therefore not to work at bettering themselves. Because if their failures aren't because of their own actions, then their success can't be either.
