  1. A little off topic here, but who did the refinish work? I’ve got quite a few guns that are worth more to me as pretty shooting irons than original condition collectibles.
  2. You can also buy a replacement pin from VTI. Then you have the original if you ever decide to sell the gun.
  3. It seems almost everything I’ve gotten for sass has taken longer than the quoted time. My Shiloh Sharps was quoted 14 months, took 2 years. Custom colt quoted 18-24 months, Been well over 2 years now. Mernickle rig took an extra 3 months. El Paso Saddlery took an extra 2. Knudsen hat took an extra 6. In all cases, except for the Colt, communication was great with reasonable explanations for the delay. I don’t mind setbacks, but I don’t tolerate a lack of communication or the obvious excuse after excuse. I would have asked for my guns back a long time ago
  4. Doesn’t the supreme also come with a recoil pad that the standard doesn’t?
  5. Oh I’m well away of the expression, and the others having spent my military career in the south. Even picked up a bit of the accent. I just never found snot to be slick. Even wet it’s kinda sticky.
  6. I’ve never quite understood that expression. Having two small kids, it’s not uncommon to give snot on a doorknob, or various other places. And I’ll tell ya it’s far from slick. Especially once it dries.
  7. Hey Deuce, if you really want to impress us, how about a spreed run video with one of the new marlins right out of the box?
  8. Well it doesn’t matter now. Looks like it sold already
  9. I can’t see Wayne or Eastwood wearing a shotgun belt either. Especially when it turns into a bra like so many do.
  10. I use DGL for my cap guns. It’s very effective
  11. Hey Doc. You know me. All I shoot is BP. I have not found any of the bullets that claim to be good for both bp and smokeless to actually be BP friendly. At least not in my colts. I’ve talked to several of the bullet makers and they almost always tell me when using their bullets with BP to remove and wipe the cylinders and swab the bore between stages. That to me is the exact opposite of BP friendly. Springfield Slims big lube Bullets are the only ones I’ve found that allow me to run 6 stages, let alone a two day 12 stage match without having to do anything to the guns.
  12. Brother doesn’t count in California. Don’t know about other states, but immediately family is parents, kids and spouse only.
  13. IF you were local, I’d be all over it. Ffl fees here add another $100 to the price tag
  14. I love that video. Especially since I grew up in that area, about 50 miles south of Bend right off the 97. Fantastic shooting irons for both of ya's
  15. Where did you find an empty bottle? Hard to imagine someone actually drank it
  16. I like that even better. Remember that match where he had a full pistol reload? I told him I just bought a schofield and wanted to do a reload haha. Of course he brought his too
  17. Maybe we can get Rowdy to write us a stage where we shoot only 4 pistol targets and we get a bonus if we shoot it with our 1849's
  18. I’ve had hearing loss in my right ear since I was 24, courtesy of my service to Uncle Sam. My point is that this is a game with a certain amount of risk involved. The guy is not asking for a canon, which some folks do want to light off at matches often times without warning. He wants his 10 gauge to sound like his 12 gauge, which should be perfectly fine with everyone involved.
  19. Gotcha. I measure by drams or grains. Never heard of ounces by volume
  20. I just got my post cards and they are really cool
  21. Maybe we should all just start shooting .22’s so that we don’t offend anyone’s hearing? To the op, before you go too crazy spending a lot of time and effort playing around with your loads, try plastic shells first. I have a 10 gauge greener that I use more than twice the powder I use in my 12 gauge and the 12 seems louder. I think it’s the brass shells combined with felt wads. I don’t know for certain, as I’m not a rocket scientist, nor a sound specialist. It’s just a theory of mine. Oh and what does OBV mean?
  22. I have crossed over before. An example would be a Nevada sweep with targets stretching across the entire stage. Left gun shoots left target, right gun shoots middle, left gun crosses over to shoot right target, and right gun stays put to shoot middle again. The purpose would be so that the right gun isn’t even close to hitting 170, as well as only having to move and aim one gun instead of both. But I never rested one hand on the other arm while doing so. It might help with accuracy, but it would certainly slow you down as well as create a potential scenario where one gun could hit the other crossing back.
  23. Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately, the tax man needs to get paid first.
  24. Hell yeah. I might need a new holster for it too
