  1. Hold out for the 45-60. I have one (nope, NFS!) they are great rifles. Fun to shoot.
  2. Mine has the tang sight. I believe They were standard on the H&R officers model. a 305 grn Bullet with 14.2 Unique is a nice load for this rifle.
  3. 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
  4. B western can use Blackhawks as well.
  5. 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.
  6. I suspect you are right! Need to make sure that this is a club match only thing.
  7. 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?
  8. 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!
  9. If MD Lancaster doesn’t take it I will.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 !
  13. 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.
  14. 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 !
  16. I didn’t know you shot pocket pistols
  17. My 38 SW Lee sizer die 38 auto my 32SW Lee sizer dies 32ACP
  18. I’ll look it over. The ability To pull a hull out at powder station would be great.
  19. I’ve seen that. I fear tapping the cast iron base is beyond my machining abilities.
  20. I bought one at an estate sale. I think the guy may have croaked while loading. Still had unfinished shells in it! biggest drawback: you can’t take a hull out once it’s past station 1, unless you unhook indexer and back them up. If you have a fouled hull at wad setting station far easier to just keep a knife handy and cut the shell in 1/2 and let it go around. You will spill powder and shot. Just live with it! I got a spring loaded aftermarket primer pin. It will automatically adjust primer setting if you change hulls. I load about 90% STS, a few AA. doesn’t matter

    Do you know anybody in Delaware? one of the neat things about the SASS classifieds is you can find most anything there, and I’ve never had an issue buying or selling a gun or other item on the wire. Cowboy shooters are honest folks!

    I was trying to keep it a secret so you would let me write the side match scenarios for our upcoming annual match in December.

    No. Just 4 shots period. However you want to do it
  24. Now all I have to do is convince a MD to write a 4 shot derringer side match! Not sure what I’m going to do with it, but have wanted one for a while! HJS Arms 22 4 shot derringer. Modeled after the C Sharps derringer. Has a nifty rotating firing pin on hammer.
