  1. Aerosol sight black works well for me....spray it on before the match and will often go the entire match...if not....over to the safe area and re-spray. Have also used my carbide sight black lamp (Gunsmoke) with real carbide...left over from my NRA Service rifle days....gets things REALLY black and is non reflective as well....folks DO look at you however! Bugler
  2. Thanks Marauder!! Didn't know Milburn Stone sang with Harry James......know all about Ken Curtis and his singing in the Sons of the Pioneers and with Dorsey.....what a voice when he was singing....not all the hillbilly ridge runner voice when he was in character. Bugler
  3. In 197 there was an episode called New Doctor in Town in which Dr. Chapman (Pat Hingle) was replacing Dr. Adams ( milburn Stone)......my real question is what happened that Milburn Stone was not in a number of episodes and then returned? Was there a medical issue? A contract issue? etc.... 2nd question...how many episodes was Harrison Ford in?...I know of 2 but there are probably more.... Bugler
  4. Sometimes it is about the challenge in front of you.....I hope you exceed your wildest expectations! Man made it at one time, so another one can do the same.... Keep us posted on your progress. Bugler
  5. Koolaid... That is exactly the SxS I have been using for the last year.....If Hoss doesn't borrow it you are welcome to try mine out. It is also a Johnny Meadows gun.. Bugler
  6. Have used One Shot since it first came out.....totally satisfied with the results!!! Bugler
  7. Another reason that I love Montana!!! Bugler

    Spotting scope

    One of the best values for the money is the Konus 20x60x80 spotting scope. Many of my smallbore and NRA High power rifle shooters are VERY pleased with the results. You can see bullet holes (.30 caliber) at 200 yards if you are using the black bull. In the white I can see .22 holes..... Might work out for you as well. Bugler
  9. Am going to use my Uberti '73 in 44-40 next year on a friends ranch.....seems to have a good number of mule deer living in his alfalfa fields....usually less than 100 yards.... Bugler
  10. Resembles an old Fekker scope to me........ Bugler
  11. Anyone know how many episodes had both Dennis Weaver AND Ken Curtis in them? I have seen about 5 but I think there are more than that.... The supporting stable of cast members was extraordinary.....I liked the nickname Sgt. Holly ( Forrest Tucker) had for Marshall Dillon....Marshall Big Fist! Bugler
  12. Wow! Does everyone have a Brinnell hardness tester? I have NO idea as to what the real hardness level is on my own cast bullets...... I have been using smelted isotope balls (whatever hardness that is) in my cap & ball revolvers and my all of my 44-40 revolvers and rifles with GREAT success. Anyone know what hardness isotope balls are? Bugler
  13. Just finished watching Gunsmoke "Snow Train" on Tvland and have to say that I think it is without a doubt in MY mind the best episode EVER. How about the rest of you? Bugler
  14. To the OP's original comment....yes Dillon's Customer Service NO B.S. policy is legendary! Bugler
  15. Never knew I wasn't supposed to load Black Powder on my 550.....I've loaded many thousands of 44-40's with no issues. I am not going to tell my Dillon that it isn't supposed to do that! Bugler
  16. I have two 1860 Army revolvers (brass frame) that have stretched frames....one is a Pietta and the other a CVA. My real question is this....Will the barrel, cylinder and internal parts fit into a Uberti 1860 Army frame? I have a line on a steel Uberti frame. Bugler

    Hat question

    I noticed that many of the older actors ( Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, James Arness, Glenn ford, Steve McQueen etc.) used the same hat ( sort of a trade mark) regardless of the movie that they were in....Not that they all wore the exact same style as each other.....the same style from movie to movie for each of them. Hope I am making sense.... Did they use their own hats in the movies or did the props people make sure that it was the same? I understand using the same hat and clothing for continuity within the same production......just wondering. Bugler
  18. People actually clean their primer pockets? Never heard of such a thing!! Bugler
  19. You are only limited by your imagination......Much you probably already have, if not many find great stuff at a Goodwill type store.....shirts for less than .25 cents etc.... Bugler
  20. I ONLY use ....whatever is on sale! I refuse to have a gun be primer specific.Seems like I am using a bunch of Winchesters and S&B with ZERO malfunctions. Bugler
  21. i JB Weld the loading gate tab on every '66 I get....fresh out of the box or well used....saves a LOT of frustration and disappointment to boot! I posted a pictorial tutorial of this on another thread. Bugler
  22. also, be prepared to explain to the Match Director/TO that you are NOT violating the 170 by using any of the drawing methods for cavalry flap over holsters, especially when you are using two of them. The Cavalry Twist Draw is an approved method by SASS. Bugler
  23. Keep us posted as to which method you end up using..... Bugler
