  1. OK ... OK ... you forced me to look in one of my dirtiest parts boxes ... so NOW you are going to have to take it!! Message me a mailing address and I will get it headed your way.
  2. Don't fool around!! Get her one of these beauties!!
  3. Sounds like the "earlier" mis-fires by this gun were really hang-fires ... From another article >> “A gun had two misfires in a closed cabin. They just fired loud pops – a person was just holding it in their hands and it went off,” a source told Deadline earlier. << Soooooooo it sounds like they might have been dealing with some damp blanks ... and that was possibly messing up a few scenes ... AND ... someone (the real gun guy) decided that using live rounds where possible would get them past that problem (until they could get their hands on some proper blanks). Then ... they had set squabbles and the guy who was supposed to be taking care of the guns decided to head back to Albuquerque w/ the rest of the disgruntled crew. (AND there was that gun laying there w/ a live round in it ... just waiting for someone who knew nothing about guns to put it in the mix) ... IMHO as always of course ... It is a shame that there is such a hate for guns that we don't have gun safety classes anymore. How many times do you read about teenagers breaking into a house .. finding a gun and the while playing ... drop the magazine and point/shoot it at someone ... (not having any idea that the gun would fire with the magazine removed). AND ... on top of that we have almost every prime time TV show w/ the hot model and a gun!! No wonder all the kids want one.
  4. Only recently ... I was positive I had convinced a new friend to attend one of our matches ... but then ... he just flew away ...
  5. Wow .. pg 13 ... >> In the event a target fails or is downed, the shooter should “shoot where it was.” ---- AND ... in another sentence it says ... --- For safety reasons a target on the ground should never be engaged. << It doesn't say not to "shoot where it was" (or not to shoot at all) now the it might be on the ground. It simply says ... don't shoot at a target if it is laying on the ground. Fire one over it and move on!! Take the shot. If you have 4 shotgun targets and 3 are laying on the ground when you get to them ... then heck ... fire 4 safe shots and make sure one of those shots retires the single remaining target that is still standing. No call ... no penalty ... Wow ...

  7. I have a Sig 522 rifle w/ 20 inch barrel and the Aguila Interceptors work great in that thing ... (the Interceptors go 1400+fps) ... Still have a few 500 round bricks of the stuff from Midway. The 60gr snipers really need a barrel w/ a fast twist .. 8-9-10/1 or in some cases a little slower ... but the 14+ found in most 22s is a little too slow and they will tumble ...
  8. Nooooooooooooo ... but round balls are 140/142gr .. AND ... when I first started loading Cowboy Special I used some Bear Creek 160s w/ 3.0gr of Bullseye ... they sounded (and shot) great but only made 400 fps (exactly) ... 64pf ... IMHO ... 3.0+gr of Bullseye w/ a round ball would be a great starting point.
  9. Yeah .. but those rules are so vague!! - Boots are required and must be of traditional design with fancy stitching or multi-color fancy design with smooth, non-grip enhancing soles. Lace up boots and moccasins are not allowed. - ... and then ...
  10. Yep ... it got so bad I changed our registrations to Independent ... (you can designate which primary ballot you want w/ appropriate).
  11. +1 and Midway has Large Pistol CCI ... https://www.midwayusa.com/primers/br?cid=17587&Availability=Available https://outdoors.natchezss.com/products/reloading-primers-in-stock-primer
  12. I think bringing the "Pirate" theme back would attract a lot of shooters (remember when we did the "Pirate" thing?? ... was in the Chronicle every month etc etc ... ) That would suck them right in!! There has to be bunches of people just laying back … secretly wanting to be a Pirate!! Could have side matches with swords ... pegs and stuff ... and save on ammo!! Aye!!
  13. It's not fair to put up warning signs (like the one in the OP's photo) ... Doing so undermines the "Law of Natural Selection" !!!
  14. +1 MGW springs - https://www.midwestgunworks.com/page/mgwi/prod/32040 Long Hunter has regular "hardened" pins and now "extended length" hardened pins too ... https://www.longhunt.com/storelh/index.php?route=product/product&path=88_95&product_id=425
  15. Obviously ... very under appreciated ... Auto Repair / Assistant Clearing Mine Fields
  16. Beef Stroganoff ... Now that would make a great Alias ... >> Next shooter!! Come on Beef ... you're next!! ... BS for short ...
  17. The really smart ones will leave home and get a regular job ...
  18. Don't think anyone worried too much about ear plugs in those days ... I watched another version of these videos and it could clearly be seen Patton firing the revolver double action.
  19. Seems to be working OK in many countries. Their primers are working OK for me ...
  20. Sounds good ... can't do any better than that!
