  1. I did an EOD call in the early 1980's to Batoche Saskatchewan in Canada where there was a battle in 1885 and recovered a cannon ball. When we detonated it the explosion was far bigger than anticipated as we were trying to use a minimal amount of explosives. At that time I think it is safe to say it was over 100 years old.
  2. For the first 18 years that I shot Cowboy Action, I used a 100 year old Winchester M97. Towards the end I had 3, 1 to shoot, 1 for a backup and 1 was always in the shop of my '97 smith! About 5 years ago my wife (Burnt Bacon, SASS 93689) casually asked me how much I had spent in the previous 24 months on gunsmith bills. I sheepishly looked her in the eye and said "Yes". Next season I started with a SXS. Anyone who has only spent between $450-$650 on their shotgun, has never competed with an original Winchester M1897!
  3. "De boss" as in Premier? Hope to see you in Granum 1st weekend in July if the darn province opens up soon. We get out to the local range at least once a week to scratch our trigger triggers and she has come out of retirement and gone back to work as a nurse on a casual basis.
  4. Cold Lake Kid, thanks for those memes, I'll use them when I get out of facebook jail!
  5. Lever Action Horrors! Virtually everyone has a horror story about 1 or more firearms that they have owned. He's my lever horror story; In '94 I was looking for a lever in .357 because I was doing alot of .357 shooting out of my M66 and wanted a cheap and easy round that I could reload in abundance. After looking around for about 6-8 months I couldn't find one, I even phoned Winchester! The nice lady said that they didn't have enough calls to start manufacturing them again. Remember this was before Cowboy Action got bigger. I finally gave up on .357 and found a Winchester Wrangler in
  6. Looking forward to seeing you in May, ya old grump. Alberta Annie was on the telegraph to Burnt Bacon the other day about us saddling up and come a visitin!
  7. It snowed in the Hat this morning also. Burnt Bacon and I hit the indoor range every Wednesday morning for a bit of practice. Generally it is only her and myself 3 out of every 4 weeks we shoot.
  8. Good to see you Jabez, you grumpy old fart! You are not allowed to kick the bucket! Do you realize how many people you would inconvenience if you did? We would all have to come up with nice things to say about you! Darn, there are some really sensitive people out there! Stretching the truth about what happened during a bad stage is one thing, but this ................................... geez!
  9. Jabez, glad to hear your feeling better. Take life easy and build back your strength. I hope to see you at Granum this spring since Alberta Annie has announced their dates already. This morning I got an email from the Canadian Historical Arms Society they shoot at the Genesee Shooting Range, west of Leduc. "CHAS Cowboy Action shooters league will be hosting two shoots, at the Genesee Range. July 24th & 25th August 28th & 29th" Have you ever head of this group or shot at the range?
  10. We are the generation that grew up watching John Wayne, Randolph Scott, Joel McCrea, etc. The young shooters today are of a generation that grew up watching the Die Hard and John Wick series. 25 years ago when I shot IPSC we reloaded with lead bullets, todays shooters for the vast majority only use factory ammo because with all their other play toys they can't fit reloading into their schedules. Its not cost, a new IPSC style race gun can cost up the $3,000.00, almost the cost of 2 brand new Ruger Vaqueros (in Canada). A stock Winchester/Mirku M73 up here is $1,750.00, an AR 15 raced up is any
  11. Burnt Bacon & I shot with him in Noxon Montana about 3 years ago. He was still shooting a 10 gauge at 93, what a fantastic trooper to shoot with.
  12. Only 2,188 rounds out of a pound for Burnt Bacons .38's, 1707 rounds out of a pound for .44's. Burnt Bacon is down in Claresholm tomorrow with her sister and her mother looking at real estate for her mom. I've just been rumbling along trying to get a .30 cal carbine ready, just in case somebody holds a 3 gun match this year. Given the way Junior organized the Phizer (sp) injections it will be 2050 before everyone is inoculated and can cross the border.
  13. CLD, I do drop in occasionally. According to the facebook rumor mill, Junior wants to go to the polls this year. Maybe we can stop all this foolishness.
  14. Santa & I had an agreement, if we wanted something just buy it. It works for us. Not much for Cowboy stuff, by the end of November I had all my ammo reloaded (hopefully) for a full 2021 season. In case that doesn't pan out, I been working on my 3 gun kit, trying to build a replacement due to the AR's being banned for use until they confiscate them. Maybe I can fit in a few matches there, anything just to get out of the darn house!
  15. Happy BDay Jabez, hope to see you at the match in the Hills on the 26/27.
