  1. With just a little more effort you could make that completely unreadable. Angus
  2. Geez! Some of you guys must have screens the size of a firehouse door to pick out that stuff. Angus
  3. Alpo, how can you possibly know all this and still have so many questions about everything else? Angus
  4. Depending on exactly where in MI I'll take it. I've got a buddy up there I think will pick it up for me. Sending you a PM
  5. Or they'll ram into your tail end. That'll slow 'em down.
  6. I sometimes wonder where people ended up that asked me for directions while I was directing traffic around an accident. Angus
  7. Way back when the kids were young I brought home a dozen roses for my wife. No reason, I just felt like it. When I walked inside my daughter said: "Uh, Oh, dad's in trouble." Angus
  8. Sarival Slim, I'll take the Priming tool. And, if .38 Short Colt is the same as .38 S&W (I think it is) I'll take that, too. Thanks, Angus
  9. Local TV station did a story about a diver and the items he recovered in "The Party Cove" at the Lake of the Ozarks in MO. For those that have not heard of "The Party Cove" it's a section of the lake where partiers regularly congregate and tie their boats together to party. Items recovered included guns, sex toys and high $$ jewelry along with watches, phones and misc. other stuff. Angus
  10. My guess: Fox or Coyote. When we had chickens and ducks we lost a few to them. Saw a fox dragging a duck toward the tree line one day. We managed to rescue the duck but he was messed up in the head, mentally, from that time on. We also lost several chickens to dogs. You are right, dogs tend to just tear them up and leave them laying around. We came home and found 5 dead chickens, just torn up and left for dead one day shortly after seeing a couple loose dogs in the area. Kind of like vandals. I really hate vandals. I'm not a fan of thieves, either, but at least I can understand thieves. Angus
  11. Never heard of it. Where might one find it and what is it about? Angus
  12. Thanks everybody for the help. Dawg, I think that is what I printed out some time back that is currently hiding somewhere around the house. Warden, it's always easier, for me, to watch someone first. I like Part I, I'll have to check out Part II. Cemetery, I like that fix better than filling in the slot with JB Weld or some such thing. J-Bar, I can use that idea. I've got a Pietta Remington that needs a spring. I'll have to check to see if the same fix works on Remingtons. Angus
  13. I had info on smoothing up and tuning cap and ball guns, but now I can't find it. I think what I had was written by Larson E. Pettifogger. I always planned on doing a little work on my guns but never had the time. Now I think I may have some time but I no longer have the info. So I'd appreciate it if one of you pards would point me to some of the articles written on tuning the Colt '51 Navy, Colt '60 Army and '58 Remington New Army revolvers. Add the Colt Dragoon to that list since I recently added one to my collection. BTW, I have both Ubertis and Piettas, if that makes any difference. I'm sure a lot of the info will be the same between models, but it's the tiny details that'll kill ya. Thanks, Angus
  14. I'm wondering how this differs from those freak double 1911's. Don't they fire two cartridges out of two separate barrels with one pull of one trigger? Why would one be legal and the other illegal? Angus
  15. +1 with a caveat and a question. I shoot .44-40 in my rifle. (You asked about pistols) My pistols are cap guns loaded with real BP and a soft lead ball. I noticed several people mentioned using FFg in their loads. I would have thought FFFg would be better for pistol cartridges. So, why 2F instead of 3F? p.s. I have just started experimenting with real BP in the rifle with a Mav-Dutchman(?) bullet. Still wheel weights. I didn't notice any leading in the barrel with the ~50 rounds fired, but it was much dirtier when I looked down it. Any difference between 2F and 3F in a rifle? Angus
  16. Now that would probably really hurt if I thought ever had enough cash to pay for it. Oh, heck, it hurts anyway knowing that I didn't at least get a chance to first to walk sadly out of the store without it knowing I couldn't afford it. But now I have to ask: Who was hiding such a pretty thing on their shelf around here? (Or is there a secret gun shop near me that I don't know about?) Angus p.s. I'll try to remember to bring some extra .44 WCF with me to matches in case you bring her. I'll even bring some of that smokeless stuff in case that's what she likes.
  17. Darn, wish I'd seen this before I posted in the thread on the "regular" Wire. Now I feel foolish. Angus
  18. Sorry to have to tell you, but I heard he got shot four times with a .44 No Less, No More (Oh come on!! You know you were ALL thinking it.) Angus
  19. Oh, man! You're killing me! Hiding that pretty lady in a steel box is just a crime. I'd be happy to give her a good home and take her out for a good time every now and then. I'd even let you watch me shoot her. With Black Powder, of course. I've even got a nice '73 in .44-40 she could snuggle with while in the safe. Your pard, Angus
  20. Interesting. Of all the stuff I've found I'm surprised my dad didn't keep his dog tags. I have my grandfather's Army tags from WWI but I've never even seen US Navy dog tags from WWII, much less my dad's. Thanks, Angus
