  1. I'm watching it right now and I just finished segment two - the bank robber hung twice. It's amusing so far and reminds me a bit of "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?"
  2. While I did replace the sizing and crimping die in my .44-40 set with Redding, I have been using Lee Precision dies in 9mm, .38/.357,, .40 S&W .44 Mag, .45 Auto, .303 British and .30-'06 Springfield since the mid-'70's and they've always produced fine ammo at far less cost than all of the others.
  3. Thanks! I guess style points is in the eye of the beholder. To me, style points go to anything Frontiersman and the loud boom of real black powder.
  4. Not to be annoying, but what exactly is the point of butt forward? I know people think it looks cool, but both methods above look like they could not possibly save you time and for most of us would actually add time...?
  5. I just had to Google it (Google knows all) and who cares what wannabe video gamers think? BTW, 1873's of all brands are nice, who would really want one when they could be shooting Navies?
  6. Here's a quote from Long Hunter's website: "On a side note - These are the best Marlins we have seen produced in the last 20 years. The quality has greatly improved in our observance for those wondering or living on internet myths." http://www.longhunt.com/web/index.php?page=Marlin-1894-Custom-Cowboy-Action
  7. I have one of those slicked up by Long Hunter's gunsmiths and while admitting that I know little about Marlins, mine seems nice and slick - not as slick as my Codymatic, but still quite nice. The only weird thing - and I don't see how Long Hunter could be blamed for this - is that at 25 yards, lead cowboy loads hit about 4" - 6" to the left, mild Magnum loads hit about 2" - 3" to the left and full-bore Magnum loads hit dead center, point of impact equals point of aim. I bought this gun to go hunting hogs with my son when he comes down to visit and also to be a backup in case my Codymatic goes down. Therefore, I have the front sight moved so far left that it's almost about to fall out in case I do use t as a backup and it's topped with a Burris FastFire III that's sighted in dead center with full power loads. It's almost as if the barrel is bent to the left and full power loads temporarily straighten it while passing through. I assume that it's me somehow, but none of my other rifles do that.
  8. While there is apparently no Team SASS in Virginia, we do have the Virginia Citizens Defense League and the VCDL has done more for our civil liberties here in Virginia that any other organization. Here is our website - please support us! https://vcdl.org/
  9. I remember years ago hearing that it was "food grade" oil. I wonder if anyone here might be willing to down a cup of it and let us know how it goes?
  10. Same here! We used to lube our M16-A1's with LSA and they would immediately rust - it may have been a good lube, but it had no preservation properties whatsoever.. Not long before they upgraded us to the M16-A2, they started issuing us CLP and I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. I still like the stuff, but I'm going to switch to One Shot - I'm already using One Shot Case Lube, so why not?
  11. Looks like an excellent study! I think I am sold on One Shot for all non-BP uses. I would caution people about Frog Lube: While it seems to have all of the properties one would want and it's even BP compatible, I found out the hard way that it will harden into a wax-like substance that ruined my day. I have been using Ballistol on flintlocks for at least 20 years and when I started shooting C&B a couple of years ago, I would snap caps before loading my gear for a match and never had a problem with ignition. I tried Frog Lube on an evil black rifle and it seemed to work great. I figured I'd try it with my Navy's, so I cleaned up after a match, lubed them with Frog Lube, put them away in the safe and then the evening before the next match, I snapped caps like normal to be sure they were clear and packed up for the match. When my turn came at stage one, I had 3 misfires with one gun and four with the other. It was embarrassing as all get out and I learned a valuable lesson about physically clearing the vents and not simply trusting snapping caps to do the job. However, what's relevant here is that when I pushed the Frog Lube out of the vents, it had formed a hard wax that a Remington #10 couldn't push out. I'm not saying that it shouldn't be used; simply be aware of what it can do if it collects and hardens.

  14. I noticed your love of Aussie Rules Football.  I just saw The Story of Australia and that was the first I had heard of it and it looks like a lot of fun!

                    Yes a fantastic game, I played 200 games myself [ in a lower league ] & have always been  a passionate supporter of the Richmond Tigers who are part of the National  AFL Competition  [Australian Football League ]... a lot different to grid iron, rugby & soccer..terrific skills & aerobic capacity of the players..once a person knows the rules it is great to watch.Thanks for the enquiry & reading my profile.

      All the best..Regards 'Mohawk
