  1. Would have been honored to sound TAPS on his behalf......I do so 4-5 times a week here in Billings Montana. Bugler
  2. Many of you already know I had a burglary on 14 May 2020. 4 guns have been recovered out of 11 stolen. I have about a dozen magazines for each of the 3 XD's (9mm, .40, and 45 acp.) Same with my still stolen M&P FS.45 acp. At today's pricing, part of me wants to sell them off and be done with them, another part of me wants to hang on to them and hope more of them get recovered and another part of me says to sell all but 3 magazines for each and then maybe find replacements for the still missing guns...... My real question fellow forum members is....what would YOU do in this situati
  3. I guess my tape measure must be metric then......it actually measures 10' from top of cocked hammer and top of front sight.
  4. I mis-measured the sight radius of my 7 1/2 '73 colt clone.....it is a 10" sight radius from the top of the cocked hammer to the front sight.....So that would be a total height of .392 right? Bugler
  5. So, are these calculations correct? 6" high x 7.5 sight radius divided by 360 (10 Yards) = .125 additional height required? Bugler
  6. I have a copy of a '73 Colt SAA that I lost the front sight on during a match last summer. My local gunsmith put a replacement on that is too short as it's POA and POI are 6" high at ten yards over a solid rest. The barrel is a 7 1/2 inch barrel and I am firing .38 Spl with 158 SWC and 4 gr. of Unique, so it is NOT a hot rod round by any means..... How much needs to be added to the existing front sight to get POA to center? Bugler
  7. Anyone have a line on reproduction playing cards and chips from the old west.....cards like those used in Tombstone? Am making a shadow box with a pocket gun, reproduction dice, chips and cards. I have keyed in most every combination I can think of and keep getting old Bicycle cards.....not quite what I am looking for..... Thanks to all!! Bugler
  8. I couldn't resist having some fun at Gunshow last weekend. Lots of grumpy people looking for overpriced stuff....there wasn't any....it was insanely priced. Displayed this on my table.....got a lot of chuckles and grins lightening the day for some folks. Limit was one to a family.... Randy
  9. Thanks everyone on trying to solve my mystery...... there were only 12 of them.. As they were range pickups, I have no way of asking the original shooter.... Interesting brain teaser for sure!! Bugler
  10. At the Billings gunshow this weekend I bought an ice cream bucket of mixed brass......mostly .380 auto. I did find about a dozen casings that are headstamped .380 auto but are only 13.35 MM long. What in the world are these for? The left casing is a regular .380 auto casing for contrast. Bugler
  11. From looking at case dimensions, it looks like I could use my friends .460 S&W dies to load Casull casings? Right or wrong Bugler
  12. Please refresh my memory, I have 45 Colt dies and have used them to reload 45 Schofield casings, Is there enough adjustment to also load the 454 Casull? Or do I need to obtain 454 Casull dies due to the much longer casing length? Bugler
  13. I would also like to mention Law Dog Hat Company here in Billings Montana.....Randy has been a big supporter of SASS locally and does exquisite work. Look him up..... Bugler
  14. Don't know how to fix the picture problem..... The 45-70 ammo has been identified as mfg. for a two year period between 1878-1880. The .45 acp shotshells were issued during WW2 to air crews as a survival cartridge. The 38-40 casing are Starline..... The 351 SLR Winchester ammo is a mix of WW and Remington Thanks to all!! Especially Backstrap Bill for his research........ Bugler
  15. I recently was given some ammo from an estate of a dear friend of mine.....anyone a cartridge collector that can help ID the year of mfg. on the 45-70 and approximate value , same question on the .45 acp shotshell box that contains .45 acp shotshell and is unopened? There is also 62 rounds of factory .351 Winchester ammo not in boxes however, lastly about 40 some rounds of 38-40 casings.... Thanks everyone Bugler
