  1. I use my Chase card to buy stuff on gun websites all the time. If they ever pull that crap on me they're getting an earful.
  2. Several Christopher Columbus statues were destroyed or defaced in the last couple of days (I guess nobody outside MLK and Harriet Tubman deserves a statue any longer), and a couple were tagged with hammers and sickles painted on them. There is no doubt in my mind that homegrown communists are behind a lot of these protests, possibly aided by foreign countries. I'm just waiting for people to start sacking Mt Vernon, Monticello and the Hermitage or demanding that we blow up the faces of Washington and Jefferson on Mt Rushmore.
  3. The Capitol Hill neighborhood is so far left that even progressive liberals fear to tread. A long time ago a guy I knew made the mistake of parking his pickup truck there for a few hours. Problem was he had an NRA sticker on it, and when he returned all the windows had been smashed out of it and the tires slashed. And that was long before Antifa even existed.
  4. In my experience whatever stainless alloy Colt uses will rust almost as easily as naked carbon steel. I've found rust under the grips on my 1911s on several occasions.
  5. Australia, New Zealand and SE Asia had their C19 outbreaks when they were still in their hot summers. It's becoming apparent that the experts simply don't know, and it's giving the politicians free rein to make up s--- on their own.
  6. Using logic on a lefty is like trying to put a dress on a squealing pig in a pen. A complete waste of your time.
  7. One fart and she's gonna impale some poor guy in China...
  8. No, they're just in training to come after you later.
  9. I agree. The poor thing's only crime was being an alligator.
  10. West Virginia. eh? Any beachfront property for sale there?
  11. And just like pretty women my 10mm sockets always seem to want to hide from me!
  12. Funny thing, but when I was in China all the banks had bulletproof glass protecting the employees and you had to put your funds in a stainless tray. And this is a country where nobody has guns, not even most of the cops. Yet here in the good ol' gun-happy USA you walk in to most of the banks in my area, and you could literally strangle any of the employees if you wanted to. Except for my nearest bank, where the counter lady literally has more chest hair than I do and could probably crack any skull that threatens her/it.
  13. Gawd, ain't that the truth! I'm really getting tired of online videos where some YouTube hotshot mag-dumps into a rubber human dummy at five feet then brags about how accurate the gun is. I think the last time I actually saw someone shooting at 25 yards they were using a rifle.
  14. A couple years ago I bought a Cimarron .36 1851 Navy, and it is so fun to shoot I haven't even thought of expanding the collection. Mine was actually put together right, with no attention needed to the arbor or anything else. I also have an old Centaure 1860 Army that my dad bought back in 1971, but is a pain in the rear as it's difficult to load the percussion caps. Also the action feels rough and it has really strong springs in it, unlike the 1851 which is slick and smooth. If I were to get another cap n' ball revolver it would probably be one of the Italian 1860s, since I like the looks.
  15. I readily admitted that I haven't owned or used a Uberti with the new retractable firing pin. My opinion isn't based on its function or performance. I just hate seeing classic designs ruined by lawyers having their way. It's the same reason why I will not buy a new Smith & Wesson with the infamous "Hillary Hole", aka key lock feature. In my opinion, if you can't figure out how to safely use a Colt Single Action or clone then you probably shouldn't own one. Go buy a Ruger with its bazillion safety features and let those of us who enjoy the nostalgia of owning and shooting an 1870's revolver design have our fun as well.
  16. At this rate the next batch of Ubertis will have a huge cross-bolt safety in the frame as well as a key lock. Along with a huge blaze-orange highlighted rollmark on the barrel that says: "WARNING: DO NOT PURCHASE THIS FIREARM. YOU MIGHT SHOOT YOURSELF WITH IT AND SUE US"
  17. I despise the new system. I don't care if it works perfectly fine. A Model P with just three clicks is like a V8 Mustang with a single exhaust.
  18. Just one caveat about refinishing Uberti grips, the wood they use is very soft. It takes very little sanding for them to end up shrinking and leaving you with the frame standing proud of the grips afterwards. I refinished mine by using Jasco paint stripper and steel wool, which took the OEM finish right off with little effort. Follow with some light sanding to remove scratches, then straight to a new finish. I used a dark stain then Birchwood Casey's Tru-Oil on mine and they came out looking great. Certainly a lot more authentic-looking than the shiny red originals! .
  19. I once disposed of some really old military ammo by pulling the bullets, dumping the powder and firing off all the primers. Some of them wouldn't even go off. I also cleaned the gun really well afterwards because I had no idea if the primers were corrosive or not.
  20. I'm not talking about the blaze-orange sticker. I'm talking about the rollmark on the barrel that says "Made in Japan by Miroku, blah blah blah" that is conspicuously located and pressed so hard into the metal that the letters are all raised up. I really wish they'd tone it down a little and make the markings look more period-correct like Uberti, Taylor and Cimarron does.
