  1. Sorry I'm so far away. I've got plenty of small pistol, but only a little over 1000 large pistol primers on hand. Good luck. Angus
  2. .45 Schofield may be a little hard to find commercially loaded, but they are easy enough to reload. Brass is readily available from Starline, or, if you have the time and .45 Colt brass available, you can make your own. Me, I'd probably shoot it at a SASS match or two just because it's cool. However, I've tried one and I don't find them as comfortable to shoot as SAA copies. Besides, I've gone dark and my regular match guns are 1851 Navy's. Could you really trade the S&W for two Taylor's? That would tempt me mightily because it would give me a matched pair for SASS. I'm with you on one thing tho, I'm not real interested in having a gun I can't, or won't, shoot. Angus
  3. 12 hours in line to get a burger? Do they order a pizza while they're waiting in line? Is there a bucket in the car in case they need a potty break? Doesn't anybody have to go to work anymore? Questions, I have questions. Peoples is crazy. Angus
  4. As to the OP. Would I object? Probably not. I'd let somebody know the line was incorrect and the correct information, then let them take it from there. Maybe the character is supposed to sound like an idiot. Either way, they're paying me, I'll say what they want. Pretty much what I once said to a supervisor: "I only listen to you because I get paid to. I'll be as inefficient as you want me to be." That guy was an idiot. I said the same thing about him to his supervisor. Angus
  5. I haven't seen the guy for a while, but, I was told he traded the 938 back to the dealer and got something else. I still have no idea why the mags wouldn't work in his pistol. When I see him, I plan to ask him what he was told by the dealer when he took it back. I'm a big fan of the 938. Concealable, accurate and much lighter recoil than I expected from such a small sized 9mm.
  6. If that is directed towards me, I used the term to mean that he bought the magazines after purchasing the pistol and that they were marketed, marked and sold as Sig Sauer manufactured magazines. To me, "after market" means purchased separately from, "after", the subject matter item. It could be any brand. Same brand as the item or any other brand that will work with, or on, the item. In the above case they were Sig Sauer. Does that make sense to you? I'm open to any other definition. That's just mine. Hope that helps. Angus p.s. After re-reading my comment it looks like I'm being a smart-@$$. That was not my intent, so please don't read it that way.
  7. I've got an old Springfield Trapdoor in .45-70 I like to put a few rounds thru every once in a while. The problem is it has a bad tendency to puncture primers. When I first got it I traced the problem to a burr on the point of the firing pin. I stoned it off and the problem disappeared. Unfortunately the problem has reoccurred. Another burr on the firing pin has appeared. My guess is there is a rough spot inside the bolt/trapdoor near the firing pin hole that is rubbing against the firing pin. The question is: How to I get my dremel that far down into the firing pin channel to polish out that rough spot? No, seriously tho, how do I get something down there to get rid of that inside burr? It's a fun rifle to shoot, and accurate, even if the sights are way-hella-high. I can hit the silhouette at 200 yards pretty regularly with the sights bottomed out. It'll go over the top of targets at 100. But, that's another problem. Can't/won't shoot it at all if the primers keep getting pierced and hot gas flows back along the firing pin with every shot. Suggestions? Angus
  8. Yes, I did. It listed Rigmarole and Kerfuffle twice. I only saw Baloney once. So quit yer shenanigans ya decrepit old codger or I'll see you gobsmacked on your britches by a whatsit til your caterwalling wakes the Nucklehead two blocks over. I hope this puts the kibosh on this hullabalou. Can't have numbskulls spreading this kind of malarky all willy-nilly. Consider yourself lambasted. Guess I'll skedaddle now. Mischief managed. Angus
  9. Really? They do that? For free or for how much? I've got a bunch of old batteries and some DeWalt tools that are almost paperweights due to lack of working batteries. I'm not sure if they even still sell the battery types I need, but they were expensive when they did sell them. Angus
  10. Noz, Are you saying you want to change Frontiersman? Just checking. Angus
  11. All boxes dropped off at the P.O. today. "Expected delivery date" 11/16/20. Big Joe Holliday, sent you a PM. Sorry about the delay. I thought I had already messaged you. Angus
  12. A coworker bought a Sig P938 "Legion" because he really liked my P938. For some unknown reason his P938 would not feed ammo from the aftermarket 7 round magazines (SIg brand) he had bought. Three brand new Sig 7 round magazines and his pistol wouldn't feed any of them. Nor would it work with my 7 round magazine. It worked fine with the 6 round magazines it came with. My pistol worked with them all. I do not know what the difference is between the "Legion" P938 and mine, but the 7 round mags were a no-go in his pistol. I don't know what he was told when he took the gun back to the dealer, but he traded it in on something different. He owned it for about two months. Angus
  13. They are brass. Send me a PM with shipping address and I'll get them boxed and figure out shipping cost. If you have Paypal I'll give you the Mrs. paypal info. (I don't have an account myself, but she usually shares) Angus
  14. They are Brass. Send me a PM with where you want them shipped and I'll put them in a box and figure out what shipping will cost. Angus
  15. "Can I shoot that? At all?" It should be fine to shoot in the rifle. HOWEVER, as Eyesa said, you can not use it at a CAS match. For paper targets or plinking: No problem. Unfortunately fmj bullets will damage the metal CAS targets. Angus
  16. Digging around in the reloading room I came across some more brass to sell: 9mm Nickle $45 for 1000, $80 for 2000 shipped 2000 available .40 S&W Mix of brass and nickle 950 for $45 shipped .38 Special Nickle 1000 for $75 shipped .223/5.56 1000 for $40 shipped .30-30 30 pieces for $4.50 plus shipping. About half badly tarnished and will need time in a polisher. (Unless you don't mind shooting tarnished brass) .270 WSM 9 pieces for 2.25 plus shipping I'm still trying to organize stuff so I may have more later. Angus
  17. I was in a local gun store last week and they had lots of shotgun primers. Maybe 50K mix of Winchester, Remington and ???. Unfortunately not a single rifle or pistol primer on the shelves. I'm ok on shotgun and small pistol primers, but I think I'm down to a little over 1000 large pistol primers. Prices did not seem artificially inflated. If I could find a sleeve of large pistol primers at a reasonable price I'd buy them. Otherwise I think I can eek it out for a couple years. Longer if I go back to a previous caliber and use up already loaded ammo. I agree with those that would prefer to shoot a full match instead of an ammo conserving match. I come for the fun and I'm optimistic that I'll be able to rebuild supplies before I completely run out. Angus
  18. I'm also a fan of 4895 for the Garand. The problem is I don't have any. RE: 180 grain bullets - I thought anything over 168 was bad for the Garand because of the possibility of causing the operating rod to bend. Still hoping for suggestions using a 150 grain bullet over one of the powders listed above. One vote for Win. 748. Unfortunately, I've only got about 1/3# of 748. That won't load very many '06's but I may use up what I have just to get rid of it. Looks like I can rule out 4064 and 4350 for use in the Garand loads. Angus
  19. I was pondering reloading some cartridges for my .30-06 M-1 Garand but I seem to have mislaid some data. I had a list of "good" and "bad" powders to use for Garand reloads and now I can't find it. I know there was something about the pressure curve of the different powders used to avoid damaging the operating rod. I used to use 4895 almost exclusively for the M-1, but I don't have any. So, if ya'll could help me out here, I've got about 200 150gr. FMJ bullets to put on top of some .30-06 cases. I'm not trying to make match winning loads, I just want to have some fun. Plinking rounds, if you will. The powder I have on hand is: IMR 3031, IMR 4064, IMR 4320, BL-C(2), IMR 4350, H380, Win. 760 and Win. 748. A lot of these are 1/2# or less so I don't expect to get all 200 rounds put together with the same powder. Thanks, Angus
  20. Having met women with names such as Frank, George, Glenn, James, Willie and Bob (may have been a nick name) and men named Marion, Leslie and similar, typically female, names, I can understand very well why someone might note the position of a person in a photo showing several people. Angus
  21. At my former place of employment we were paid 8 hours during either time change. Reasoning was that the plus and minus hour evened everything out. It seemed like I always had to work the weekend with the extra hour and I was always off on the weekend where we worked a short shift. Angus
