  1. If you're traveling on Rt 40, it's about 20 minutes from the Edgewood NM exit to see Founders Ranch. Call me at 505-934-2533, and with some advance notice I'd be glad to give you a tour even if we're not open at the time (normal hours Wed-Sun 10 to 3).
  2. So cousin Eddie doesn't have to use the storm drain.
  3. Doug Turnbull, one of the best firearms restorers in the world.
  4. The pair of schofields and the leather worn by Ben Foster in that movie showed up in a local NM gunstore. A bit too rich for my wallet, but nice.
  5. Been in NM about 30 years and have never seen the New Mexico state magazine.
  6. I cannot speak to that, but FR only opened to shooters other than SASS (particularly during EOT) in 2011 with the beginnings of the sporting clays area.
  7. If you are a SASS member you are automatically a Founders Ranch member. The non-cowboy members of both the rifle/pistol range and the sporting clays range generate revenue to maintain and improve the facilities.
  8. Brevity is the soul of wit. As it should be with many other areas of the human endeavor. Sellers sell, buyers buy.
  9. That's a good price for a take-down model in that condition. These guns are usually pretty beat up. I'd go for it, but I already have one almost identical that I paid a lot more for.
  10. Fantastic book. Spoke about it to one of our shooters, and he said his father was a truck driver in the 3rd Armored. His Dad never got over General Rose being killed, even many years later.
  11. Some guy showed up at the range with a Wally World 100 pack of Winchester 12 gauge with a Pumpkin Spice label on it. It's gotten to the point of parody.
  12. Just gather up and reuse the plastic ones. A guy I know did this when he was stationed somewhere reloading supplies were hard to come by. Put them in a mesh bag and tumbled them in a dryer. Said it did OK.
  13. That makes me wish I'd had children so I could sell one.
  14. Ithaca NID Grade 5 in 16 gauge. Less than 40 made.
  15. Founder's will also be hosting the 2018 New Mexico Sporting Clays Championship in September. Seeing that the 2017 shoot in Lincoln Co. last weekend drew 197 shooters, and lodging was 1 hour away, this should be another big plus for us.
  16. Clocked it this morning, 9.2 miles from the parking lot to the main gate at Founder's.
  17. A knock off was made by the Japanese, in 7.7mm, which was their nomenclature for the .303 British.
  18. You should see Sporting Clays shooters, guys with $20K guns obsessing over 5ยข pieces of plastic. I think they'd trade their firstborns for a bag of once fired 28 or .410 AA's.
  19. I still fast forward past the part in "The Professionals" where Lee Marvin wrist snaps a Colt New Service cylinder shut. Guns are just props and dramatic vehicles for Hollywood.
  20. Seems these things are popular to the Zombie apocalypse crowd and millennial trench coat Nagant cultists. Whatever floats your boat. You can shorten up your regular shotgun by clamping the butt stock under your arm. Easier to control, and harder for the bad guy to get away from you if they grab the barrel.
  21. Have shot both 200 (Ultramax) and 250 (Black Hills), and also some Schofield 230 (Ultramax) and at Cowboy ranges could not tell any difference. This is out of a Cowboy Limited with the 24" barrel. I really ought to put them on paper at 100 yards.
  22. Thing I can't stand about social media are college classmates looking you up and saying "I haven't seen you in 30 years!" They never seem to understand there's a reason for that.
