  1. I like to shoot Wild Bunch and so I have my 1911, my 1873 and my derringer in 45acp. This way I only have to load one caliber. But bullets I load the the derringer are less powerful than for the 1911 & 1873.
  2. They also make 45acp brass that use a small pistol primer. Might want to take a look into that.
  3. Sent you an email with pictures. BTW It is a bad idea to put your email address or phone number in a WTB add. Bad people surf web forums like ours looking for this. Then they search the web and find a picture of what you are looking for and send it to you like they have it for sale. Once you send the money you never hear from them again. At least with a PM you stand a chance of knowing if they have a presence on the forum and can see how long they have been a member. And if you receive a PM telling you that they have a friend that has just what you are looking for and here is a link to his email address check to see how many posts they have because if the only post they have is the PM they just sent to you, you can bet that they are out to steel your money. Just my two cents.
  4. I was at the Gun Club today and was told that the Judge that was unable to rule on the lawsuit presented last month because they did not have the necessary standing is now willing to rehear the complaint and maybe make a ruling on it by Thursday. Does anyone have any more information on this possibility?
  5. I heard somewhere that Cody does the work for Taylor's & Co when they sell a Taylor tuned gun. I don't have any proof of this just what I have heard.
  6. Not that it's going to matter to the Gun grabbers but I don't have that information and don't know where to go to get it. Besides they don't want to hear it. As the Demorats say.... "We don't need facts we know the truth"!
  7. I thought that kids drowning in back yard pools was the largest cause of accidental child death.
  8. What you are saying is true to a point. If he decides to shoot Black powder in it then it will be necessary to remove the side plates often to clean it. He was also interested in replacing a few parts so this would also require removing the side plates. It might be better to have a gunsmith that is familiar with 1873's try to repair the side plate damage. But if the OP is a DIY kind of person then he might be able to put some new threads on the side plate and install a new screw (with a slightly larger diameter). If it were my gun I would try to fix it myself because I like this kind of a challenge and I feel I have the necessary knowledge and tools to do the job, but the course of action on this gun is up to the OP to decide.
  9. If the threads were still in the side plate and if this is a pin then the threads are probably already messed up. If it is a screw then it should have a head on it that will accept some type of tool to turn it. But I do agree with you that a pin would do a pore job of holding on the side plates.
  10. Larsen, It does not look like a screw so it is logical to assume that it is a pin. A light tap with a punch to see if it starts to move is a logical next step. If it does not move with a light tap then it could be rusted in. If it is a screw then using a dremel tool to cut a grove in the head so a straight slot screw driver could be used to turn it might also work. I see no reason to try to preserve the pin/screw as it is not original to the gun.
  11. From looking at the pictures you posted, It looks to me that what you have is a pin and not a screw. It might be possible to drive the pin out from the side that the pin is flush. Might be worth a try but don't get to carried away if the pin does not move with just a little coaxing.
  12. You may have a problem trying to read it. It let me read it once but when i went back to read it again it wanted me to Subscribe. If you run into this I am sorry but I have no control over the article.
  13. Here is a great article about the new NY gun laws and how they will likely soon be gone. https://buffalonews.com/news/local/rod-watson-hochul-on-borrowed-time-with-unconstitutional-gun-law/article_c21e3770-2e3c-11ed-951f-bf9bb0411e67.html Nickel City Dude
  14. You did not state what press you are using but if it is a progressive then there are some solutions to this problem. If a Dillon 650 or 750 then they have a device that will warn you of a faulty powder drop. If you are using a turret press then you can get a lockout die that will also tell you if your powder charge is correct. I am not sure what is available for a single stage press.
  15. What is this? I have never heard of them.
  16. The judge that was hearing the case about the new NY gun laws decided not to issue an injunction to delay the implantation of the new unconstitutional gun laws. We are now all victims without any way to protect ourselves.
  17. I believe that was the intention when they made up these laws. The demorats in NY are no friend of the 2A. Hopefully the Federal Judge that has this before them will issue an injunction to halt implementation of the laws until it can be determined if they are both constitutional and conform to the verdict of the SCOTUS.
  18. Here is a link to a list of Q & A's from the State Police concerning the new NY gun laws. It is a good read and worth printing out to have a hard copy. https://scopeny2a.org/resources/new-gun-law-faq-8-27-22-final-1.pdf
  19. I also wear hearing aids and until recently have used earplugs. But I had to take them out to hear the instructions and could not hear the timer going off when I had them in. I recently acquired a set of Peltor Tactical 100 electronic hearing protectors. They work great for Skeet & Trap but the head band goes over the head and will not work with a cowboy type hat. I liked the Peltors so much that I found a set of head phone type by the same manufacturer with a behind the head band. (there Tactical 6S model). They work almost as good as the Tactical 100 and I can wear my cowboy type hat and keep my hearing aids in. Also recently our club got a new timer that besides the Beep it also has a light that flashes when the button is pushed. The TO can put the timer where the shooter can see it and when the the button is pushed both the beep sounds and the light flashes so the shooter knows to start.
  20. When I started WB I was looking for a holster and someone on this board told me to try my regular SAA holster. I had a few extras lying around here and sure enough one of them let the 1911 fit in nicely. Almost like it was made for it. So I suggest you take a look at the holsters you have and see if it will fit and save yourself some money.
  21. OP here We used the timer for 4 stages last Saturday and it worked very well. I was the only one on my posse that requested to be able to see the strobe light flash but it definitely helped me. I think the buzzer on the new timer was a little louder than the old one. The large display was welcomed by all the TO's but the back light option was pretty much useless in the bright sunlight. All it all a positive addition to CAS.
  22. OP here. I got the new timer in and along with the buzzer it also has a strobe light that flashes when the button is pushed. It also has a very large display that has a back light that can be adjusted for how long it stays on and the buzzer can also be adjusted for volume. Here is a link to the web site. https://competitionelectronics.com/products/protimer-bt the picture here shows it in the shot string recording mode. When it is put in just the timing mode the time display fills the entire window which makes the digits large and easy to read. I am going to bring it to the shoot this Saturday and ask if it can be used instead of the old one that they have to see how well it works. If the unit is held by the TO so the shooter can see it when the button is pushed then they would also see the strobe flash and would make it easier for those that can’t hear the buzzer very well to know when to start. Once the button is pushed and the shooter knows to start the TO can move the timer to the regular position and not interfere with the shooter. I will post again after I have had a chance to see how well it works and how the other cowboys like it.
  23. I will take the Dillon 45 acp gauge. PM me with the payment details.
  24. Does the cowboy hat block or cause any problems with the implants?
