    Cause I already have 5 Uberti 1873 2 taylor tuned gunfighters ,  2 comps and the 12 shot 22 

    when I started I have a few nice cowboys who where happy to let me test their guns and  the 1873 just felt better in my hand

    Gotcha, in my mind I'm thinking grab em' and sell em' to a new shooter for what I paid for them; especially at that price.

    At first I thought the thread title was “Tennessee Williams Escapes”…

     

    Me too!!!

     

    Y’all remember the movies Escape from New York and Escape from L.A.?

     

     

     

     

     

    Those weren’t based on Tennessee Williams exploits... :P

    so... I never realized that Hogdon Trail Boss was made with Kangaroo DNA.  

     

    Are there any popular replacements that have a similar volume?   I was using 'clays' for everything and then went to Trail Boss.  I really like the Trail Boss but if it is going away, my peanut butter jar sized supply isnt going to last for very long before I need a suitable substitue.

     

     

     

    @The Original Lumpy Gritz you wanna tell him or should I?

     

     

    Personally I think Trail Boss sucks. It stinks and is so dirty I'd rather use real black powder(so I do). Find some Alliant Unique; not quite as much volume, but a really good powder.

    Not having been raised in the south, I still have not found a use for grits.  :o

     

     

     

    Southern born and raised and I haven't found a use for grits.

     

     

     

    All I can add is that if you don't have big grease groove bullets then 25gr of real BP,  10gr or so of lizard litter(crushed walnuts) and a dab of unsalted lard is all you need in a .44WCF or .44 cas; well a bullet helps.

    They don’t deserve a CFP berth after that game. (Charlie’s gonna retreat to a hideaway and wait for the Bama faithful to chime in.)

    Agree and THANKFULLY the Ohio State got beat and shouldn't be involved in the cfp either.

    Since I don't have any relations that appreciate guns, and no one to leave them to, there aren't any that "I'll never sell"...  Just guns that I'll prioritize and hold on to until my shooting days come to an end.  Then I'll keep something for self defense until I can't lift it anymore.

    Dad! You know I appreciate guns! If you wanna go ahead and send a pair of ROAs now, I'll shoot em' and show ya how much ;)

     

     

     

    I'd never sell Pappy's Swiss K31 he bought in France during WWII. Other than that everything is for sale, but very expensive.

    Is it because everyone is seeing these topics on other news feeds and don’t “need” the Team SASS forum?  

    I won't go so far as to say don't need, but yes I'm inundated with this everywhere.

    Or, is it because we’re all looking for a momentary escape from all the political pablum that invades us far too often?  

     

    Yes, that's my reason.

    I have an opportunity to purchase Uberti 73 or Winchester 73.  The price difference after all fees' is $350.00 more for the Winchester. My question is the price difference worth it for the Winchester?  Thanks inadvance

     

     

    Do you intend to participate in S.A.S.S.?

     

    If yes, I'd suggest going to a match(if you haven't already) and seeing if you can try both out before you buy.

     

    If not, I'd probably go for the Winchester.

     

     

    I have both and the Winchester is a better gun from the factory; the Ubertis need a little attention. Yes, it's $350 better.

    Yes.

    Ok, was going to follow up with something similar to what Cayuse Jack posted.

     

    I'd take an extra look and make sure those transfer bars are good and smooth, as well as putting a thin washer under the light springs.

     

    It's also possible that some junk got in with the firing pin return spring or it wasn't lightened enough(or at all) with the action job. If that's too strong or dirty it can cause issues too.
