  1. Possum, I recently responded to a WTB post on a Marlin 39a. I remarked “you and me both, been looking for one for a while” later a seller posted some pictures. I replied I would be interested if original poster passes. He did pass, and told me it was all mine if I wanted it. Made the deal. I didn’t feel like I scooped the OP. I made it clear I was 2nd in line. as for merchants snatching up the good deals, yes it bothers me. On one hand, it’s the American way. But, I also think new shooters should get 1st crack at “deals”. I even once saw a reseller claim a “free to good home” item
  2. B western can use Blackhawks as well.
  3. My home club. Texas Riviera Pistoleros is allowing 22s this year. Nobody has used them yet. I did, last fall at a 5th Saturday match, shoot Buckaroo just for the fun of it! 22s are fun to shoot every once in a while! I may do it again this summer. Even drag out the 410 double. I see no huge harm in allowing 22s, as long as it’s just at club level.
  4. I suspect you are right! Need to make sure that this is a club match only thing.
  5. Working on my packing list for my first ever Land Run. Can’t wait! for long range, what is typical ammo count? How is the 22 side match run? 1 revolver or 2?
  6. I’ll take the 38/357. My internet has been very spotty. If I fail to contact you it ain’t because I’m not trying!
  7. If MD Lancaster doesn’t take it I will.
  8. Me and you both! I’ve been watching at gun shows for a couple of years. Found one, had a pistol grip stock, but straight lever . Somebody had cut a groove in the stock to allow it to fit. another looked good, but had mechanical issues.
  9. I saw one that had a 8” is so strap attached to the sling swivel point on the barrel. Had a knot in the end. Shooter held the strap in fist, pulling rifle into shoulder. Looked to have plenty of control over rifle. I’m not sure if this would be called a sling or not. I just use the stick.
  10. no dog in this fight, just my .02¢ worth.... I have horn grips on my Rugers. One big benefit is in wet weather, or sweaty hot weather, they get sticky, not slippery! and they are very distinctive. Your guns will stand out on the loading table !
  11. I know I can buy a replacement hinge joint. I’m going to experiment with some sort of plastic bonding glue or epoxy resin. I was just curious off anybody had found something that worked. The hinge is a definite weak point. I’ve learned not to lean on the handle, but others will lean on it.
  12. Anybody figured out a way to repair the plastic hinge on a rugged gear cart handle? I’ve tried JB Weld, no luck.

    So this happened!

    Haha, they do look bigger. One thing I can tell you, if you ever have a gun pointed at you, them holes look big enough to crawl into! it’s kind of a novelty gun, not a whole lot of practical use, but it’s pretty neat. And besides, my 401-G appreciates more in value than my 401-K !
  14. I didn’t know you shot pocket pistols
