    TO question

    Would pass to another T.O...... Bugler
  2. They are infected with Covid-19...............in quarantine..........small attempt at humor. Bugler
  3. Hey guys, Refresh my memory as to who makes the large brass bead front sight for my Marlin 1894c? Drawing a blank here. Bugler
  4. Took a little more than gentle bop on the cleaning rod, but it is out and properly reassembled...... Thanks Guys!!!! Bugler
  5. I took the bolt out of the action and cleaned it as it had been shot in at least a dozen matches, my problem is that the bolt went all the way forward so that I cannot insert the lever, nor can I seem to get the bolt to retract far enough to insert the lever..... What do I do to retract the bolt in order to re-insert the lever? Bugler
  6. Amiss sounds alot like DANG
  7. Had no idea response would be this spirited! Bugler
  8. Was asked about this by a .36 caliber cap and ball shooter....."Can a shooter request the targets be re-painted so as to ensure that hits are easily distinguished"? Cannot find anything on Manuals that answers that. What do you all say? Bugler
  9. Not no way, not no how..........
  10. I don't understand your statement......please explain this. My calipers are measuring the side to side distance of the chamber. Why is that an impossible measurement? Bugler
  11. A friend of mine in Idaho has a real original Henry in .44 rimfire and a case of 200 rounds of ammo in an unopened case that I guess is worth much more than the rifle. I always admired his Henry.....wonder what it would take to have a manufacturer make a run of 44 rimfire? Sort of like they have done on the old 5mm rimfire. With today's technology it can't be that difficult.. Bugler
  12. Using my digital caliper for inside measurement.... Bugler
  13. On a whim, I decidaed to actually measure the cylinder diameters for 3 of my 1860 Army revolvers. Two are Pietta and one is a Uberti. To my surprise I was getting measurements all over the place....none were anywhere close to the .451 diameter usually suggested, more like .438 to .445. No wonder the .451 balls are so hard to seat. .454 would be near impossible unless you had a long cheater bar. What are you serious Cap & Ball shooters using? Does anyone bore the cylinders so that each and every one measures exactly the same? ie. maybe .450 for all? Bugler
  14. That would be my granddad's 97 shotgun made in 1902........Thanks Grandpa!!
  15. I have used 6 grains of Unique with a 200 gr. RNFP for many years, very mild and accurate as well. Bugler
  16. A side note to my comment above is this....Many of you know that I am a real deal bugler sounding TAPS for deceased military and their families graveside. I was told that on my last service that I HAD to wear a mask.......I then asked the funeral director how expected me to play? He had a silly look on his face....I then told him that he has a choice, I can mask up and NOT sound TAPS or forget the mask and do what I came here to do.....you pick. As the service as starting in about 2 minutes he decided that it would be OK for me to NOT don a mask. Bugler PS. Now all Memorial Day services are cancelled......what an insult to our veterans deceased or not!!!!!!!!!!!
  17. If others choose to wear a mask that is their decision, if I am being told that I "MUST" wear a mask, then I have other things to do. Bugler
  18. Used Lansky for a long time and then discovered the Work Sharp belt sharpener......WOW!!! It does what the Lansky did in mere moments.... Bugler
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. Have used One Shot since it first came out.....totally satisfied with the results!!! Bugler
