  4. oooopppsss!!! NRA files for banckruptcy By Raylan, Friday at 05:17 PM in SASS Wire Saloon Reply to this topic Start new topic
  5. No one has posted the NRA done filed for BR?
  6. Slowhand, it seems that I have also incurred the wrath of Father Time. More accurately, God's plan. The latest iteration of a speed rig offers great access to the revolver, enough retention, and a hole big enough that you cannot miss when re-holstering. What more could a buckle aspiring cowboy want?
  7. "At 45 Colt velocities, unless you have a fitment problem (too small a diameter) or a rough, irregular bore, you shouldn't have any leading with dead soft, pure lead projectiles." What Griff said. You can drive a soft lead bullet too fast and you can drive a very hard bullet too slow. Either will cause leading. http://cowboybullets.com/ Read the home page.
  8. Because of back surgery (and a lot of difficulty before surgery), I cannot run and gun. So I got interested in "long range" rifle. I had purchased a Marlin 336CB 38-55 years ago and decided to start to work. I started loading in 1963. I have a couple of rifles that I load for and thought "ain't no big deal". Well let me tell you, you ain't never run into a really confusing situation. My point. I am very thankful for all the responses from Marlinowners., Levergunscoundrels, and a number of forums who spoon fed me on the slippery 38-55. I also want to thank Lee Shaver for taking t
  9. The holster thing reminds me of the original black powder hoorah. There are some who do not believe cowboys should use a cut down, radical cant (legal), speed rig. Then there are those who are looking for the ergonomics of a rig to fit their need for speed. My heroes are Steve McQueen, James Drury, Peter Brown, Clint Eastwood and even Russell Crowe. The only one in the whole movie who wore a holster that one could actually get a fast draw. Sharon Stone would have hurt herself if she did "hit it hard". That first shot of the match or the first shot of every stage is an attention gette
  10. Trailrider, the double buckle belt shows up once in a while in the old movies.
  11. Fire five, open gate, turn to hole, insert round, do a Clint Eastwood spin, and sliphammer like crazy.
  12. Lyman Spartan single stage 1963. $225.00?! Sorry, I'll use my Lee Turret.
  13. Not difficult but hour glassing a Colt mainspring needs careful polishing. Like Driftwood said, any scratch, grinding marks will make it let go like a dry twig. And you need a get the taper even. Rule of thumb, no thinner than 1/3 of spring.
  14. They make you wait for so many minutes after each post before you can post again. PITA.
  15. Pat Riot, this is a picture from Imgur What is the thinking about posting too quick?
  16. Had the privilege to listen to that song and watch Joe Bowman twirl the six guns at a few state championships and above. My era was 2000-2007. Grand old fella.
  17. As in most mass production items, some need fixin". The FA VibraPrime is no exception. I have one of the first ones (they stopped making them for a spell) and it needed a burr removed here and there. I have used it for 8-10 years and it runs like a charm. Dollar Bill Newman, a relative newcomer to the game, bought a recent VibraPrime and it works right out of the box. I heartily reccomend the Frankford Arsenal VibraPrime.
