  1. It appears as though a new bolt and spring are going to solve my problem.....it only lasted 20 years of shooting.....guess they wear out on occassion.


    I bought it used and have put a mountain range of ammo through it....wonder how many that is anyway?????


    Will probably replace it's mate as well as I am at it.

  2. I have a set of 1873 clones made by ASM , one of which seems to have a timing issue in that while there is a solid strike on the primer from the firing pin, it is about where a rimfire would strike. The round did NOT discharge......

    How do you determine that timing is off and what do you do to remedy that?




  3. The wind at the match today here in Billings was so bad it blew the front sight off my revolver!!




    Actually, my front sight blew off the gun on stage 2........it's on the range somewhere. Ended up shooting the remaining stages with NO front sight and did better than I thought.......missed three pistol targets before noticing sight missing, the rest of the match was clean....maybe I don't even need that piece of metal after all!!!

  4. I AM one of those people that picked up and reloads 9mm........a friend of mine that scoffed at my doing so sheepishly asked me if there was any chance he could buy some 9mm brass....."John" I said, you made fun of me all of this time for picking it up and reloading and now that you cannot get any from any store you want me to bail you out? Ah, yeah, sorta........Said, let me think about it.......


    Next morning I handed John a bag of about 500 casings........How much he asked? Merry Christmas, you old scallawag, you owe me lunch!


    I later learned that it was for the members of his church's security detail......John works the gun counter at a local gun store. He took them home that night and ran them through his Dillon 550B.


    I noticed that he did NOT ask about primers or bullets.......



  5. I have seen this done at a club in Montana, where each club member bought 2 targets and then donated them to the club. This could be extended to non club members as well.


    The NRA Grant request is also a great idea, Assassin is to my memory a great grant writer, perhaps he could guide you on this. Your state Fish and Game dept. also have Pitman-Robertson funds that you might be able to apply for.


    Lastly, if there are clubs that are defunct, perhaps they would sell at a great price or consider them a loan to YOUR club. This worked very well when West Yellowstone and Grassy Butte closed up.


    Hope you find a good solution.......



  6. 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!

  7. 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.



  8. 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....





  9. 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.
