  1. I've got to think about this. My blood sugar is getting high just thinking about 9 dozen of each........ OK, you win. I'll get you next time. Angus Wondering if it's still a Federal crime to steal the packages off the stage coach on the way to AZ GF's place. And if it'd be worth it. Widder, if the cookies don 't make it to AZ's place, and a box of cookies shows up at yours, I don't know nothin' about it.
  2. .38 Special Brass sold to RC Steelringer. (Sent you a PM) Angus
  3. Oh, so it's a bidding war, is it? Ok, send me 7 dozen and I'll get you two reviews. (I'll send one dozen to Widder for his opinion) Angus p.s. Maybe three reviews. I'll let my wife have one or two of each, too.
  4. bump. Surely some more folks need brass. Winter's a comin'. You'll need something to do while you're holed up hiding from the snow. Angus
  5. Yeah, I'm gonna need a taste test. Bake up about 4, better make that 5 dozen of each and send 'em to me. I'll let you know which one is best. Angus
  6. I don't think they're needed if you DO know how to parallel park. Angus
  7. For some reason this makes me think of a guy I used to work with that once found himself trying to hide his 6'1" 250# body behind a 6" curb on the side of a street. He got lucky and made it out ok. His partner did not. Angus
  8. My grandparents lived in Springfield, MO. We used to visit them there fairly regularly. Great town. I think you'll enjoy it. Angus
  9. I carried Safariland speed loaders for years before we switched over to semi-autos and I liked them a lot. A quick push-let go-close the cylinder and go. I toyed with one (an HK?) a friend had that required you to hold the open cylinder steady while twisting a knob to release the cartridges before letting go and closing the cylinder. It felt like too much fiddling around when you're in a hurry. The Safariland is a little more difficult to initially load with cartridges, but it's a lot quicker and easier releasing the cartridges into the cylinder. As always, your mileage may vary. Try both and see what you like. Angus
  10. Thanks, but I've got a line on one locally for a little less $. Maybe another pard here will be interested. Angus p.s. sent you a PM
  11. John Lee, I sent you an email. I just need to know if you want brass brass or nickle brass and where you want it delivered. Angus
  12. .40 S&W Brass 2000 @ $45 per 1000 shipped .40 S&W Nickle 1000 @ $45 per 1000 shipped 9 mm Brass 4000 @ $45 per 1000 shipped 9 mm Nickle 1930 @ $45 per 1000 shipped (I can bump the odd 930 up to 1000 mixing in regular brass casings) .38 Special Brass 1000 @ $65 shipped SPF .38 Special Nickle 1000 @ $65 shipped SPF .243 Winchester 33 @ $5.00 + shipping .35 Remington 18 @ $3.60 + shipping 5.56 mm 247 @ $5.00 + shipping Mostly military head stamps. I know I have more 5.56, I'm just not sure where. I'm pretty sure I can get 2000 cases in a Medium Flat rate box if you want to save on shipping. If anyone has some 6.5 Carcano Ammunition I might be interested in a trade. I have a rifle I've never shot and I'd like to rectify that situation. Black Angus McPherson
  13. You forgot the "However". "However" they will require you to take some sort of class and, maybe, shoot a qualifying score before issuing you said license. Missouri is that way. Barring a disqualification (such as a criminal conviction), you can carry in MO without a license/permit. However, to get a MO CCW that may be recognized in another state you have to attend a class, shoot and pay a fee to the state. Angus
  14. Just a guess, but at 2 AM, in bed asleep? It's surprising how many people can sleep thru a burglary. If the child didn't scream (too scared?) they might have slept right thru it. Angus
  15. This reminds me of the, almost, war trophies my grandfather tried to bring home. The biggie would have been a revolver. He was in The Great War and was issued a revolver. He was sent off for some training and, while he was gone, they issued the new Colt 1911. Since nobody ever asked for the revolver back he stuck it in his duffel bag with a couple other odds and ends (including a German lighter and a piece of shrapnel that got lodged in a tree next to his head - He burnt his hand retrieving it because he didn't expect it to be hot). Somewhere between France and home somebody looted the baggage and took everything of value/interest. Angus
  16. Forty Rod, I sent you a PM the other day and I was wondering if you got it. If not I'll try again. Angus
  17. I don't like losing brass, but I figure it ain't a day at the range unless I lose some. I probably get 98-99% back. I shoot mostly .44-40. Once I think I came out a couple ahead. Not sure how that happened, but, "sorry" to whoever lost the brass that ended up in my bag. Lawman Mark, I found a .38-40 in my bag of brass after one match. Could be one of yours meandered up to Mid-Missouri for a visit. I ain't never had one of them little critters before. I've got it sitting on a shelf near my reloader so it can watch the goings on. Angus
  18. Makes sense to me. I hadn't thought of that. The tracks in the video didn't seem to be that screwed up. Suspension of disbelief for a training video, maybe? Angus
  19. I don't understand why they had to cut the track before towing the tank out of the jam it was in. Could someone enlighten me on this? Angus
  20. No wonder I'm a bit confused. I looked at a website again today (RuralKing.com if you're interested), put my glasses on and started to look more closely at the photos of the "Range Mil-Spec" #PB9108L and the "Mil-Spec Parkerized" #PB9108LP to see if I could notice any difference. Well, not only did I not see any difference, I noticed the serial numbers were the same. So, I don't even know which model they had pictured for the two different ads. Oh, and this was after I went to the local RK to see them in person. They didn't have either model in stock. Geez, things like this really take the fun out of buying, or trying to buy, a gun. Angus
  21. I've just about talked myself into buying a 1911. I've always wanted one, but never had a real need for one. I don't shoot WB and don't need it for concealed carry, I just WANT one. While looking at Springfield Armory 1911's I've noticed three (There are probably more) that seem to have the same description but are priced at about $80 increments. Surely there must be a difference and I was wondering if anyone here could tell me what they are. The pistols in question: 1911 Mil-Spec Defender #PBD9108L (cheapest) The only thing I see different is a plain checkered grip instead of the Springfield logo grip. 1911 Range Mil-Spec #PB91082L (+$80) Has Springfield logo grips. 1911 Mil-Spec Parkerized #PB9108LP (+ another $80) Has Springfield logo grips and "Parkerized" in the name, but the finish on the other two is also listed as Parkerized. They all appear to have the same sights, same finish and come with one magazine. What am I missing? Other than an extra $160 if I were to choose the "Parkerized" It doesn't help that different websites list the different model numbers with different or interchanged names. Angus
  22. Ike, I think you missed the part about "on the way home from work" and "work" prohibits firearms on the property/random vehicle searches/etc. It wasn't the store prohibiting carry, it was the persons place of employment that prohibited possession. Angus
  23. When you go out looking for trouble sometimes you find it. Angus
  24. I hate when that happens. Not only do I miss out on whatever was for sale, I don't even get to see what it was and how much it went for. Angus
  25. OK, so the tubes hold/held the 105 projectile and the boxes hold the projectiles in the tubes. When I put my glasses on and get real close to the screen I can see there are a couple howitzers in the photo, too. Oh, and I see some projectiles next to the upright tubes! Maybe I should get a 65" computer screen. I thought it was something like that, but I didn't see any big guns or mortars when I first looked. I feel smarter now. Sometimes I feel like my grandfather. He had to wear glasses and use a big magnifying glass to read the news paper. Thanks, Angus
