      Try it again - I cleaned some out

  2. Smokin D is correct about Popular vote I made a typo and fixed it ..my source for the stats is the American President Project and the quotes are directly from newspapers and from Civil War Trust... point being he did not win the popular vote additional sources for info: "Lincoln at the Gates of History" - Flood "Bloody Roads South" - Trudea "Team of Rivals" - Kerns "The Fredericksburg Campaign" F. O"Reilly
  3. A man failed to win the popular vote and in fact only won 39% of it but won 59% of the electoral vote due to the concentration of population in the states he won..in fact he received a smaller percentage of the popular vote than nearly all the losers. A large segment of the citizens felt he was not the legitimate president because he only carried 18 states all the others voted against the candidate He was accused of implementing unconstitutional measures He was one of the most unpopular presidents of his day...upon taking office he had what would equate to a modern approval rating
  4. Try IMR 4227 works for both subsonic and supersonic or H110 works best for supersonic Tinpan McGurk
  5. IMR3031, 4198, 4195 and Trailboss depending on what is available. I like Trailboss but to me it can be a bit expensive when you consider that they don't give you a full pound for the price and 45-70 eats a lot of powder. The IMR powders do seem to pack more recoil even in my Sharps heavy buffalo rifle which weights in at over 9 lbs. I shoot the Sharps, a Henry all Weather and an 1886. TInpan McGurk
  6. Thanks Pards, Sounds like its not worth messing with it. Tinpan McGurk
  7. Any of you pards had any experience good or bad with one of these.. There is one for sale here at a local gun shop and I think they may be willing to negotiate on the price since they have had it for a while. I have seen some comments that the pump actions seem to have feeding and perhaps quality issues?? This one is in .45 Colt and looks to be in good condition. Never had or tried one so would be interested in hearing from other pards that have. Thanks, Tinpan McGurk #82892
  8. Decided to hang up the spikes at 64, and the main reason was my grandson.. decided I wanted to spend as much time enjoying the little guy as I could before he got old enough that he wouldn't want to hang around with me anymore..now he's my little buddy and I spend as much time with him as I can.. It required major downsizing ( as those of you that watch the sale classified forum know) but I do work 6 months per year as a Ranger/Historian for the NPS and fortunately I have been working as a seasonal for NPS long enough that I am able to work near his home..so even when I do work I can see
  9. The Travis Letter Commandancy of the The Alamo Bejar, Feby. 24th. 1836 To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World— Fellow Citizens & compatriots— I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna — I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man — The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or
  10. More stuff out of storage for any of you pards that shoot old smoke-poles Lee Aluminum molds with handles still with boxes - Used but still good $10.00 each or $15.00 for both plus shipping. They won't fit the small USPS box due to the handles being factory pinned to the mold so am guessing $8.50 to ship both 1 Round Ball 2 Cavity .490 dia. 176 gr 1 R.E.A.L. maxi ball 2 cavity .50 cal. 320 gr I mostly shot patched round ball and these shoot well in a T/C .50 caliber Hawken with bed ticking material patch 2 Lyman Steel Molds NEW NEVER USED in original plastic cases. These
  11. I have one with the threaded barrel and it is a great 22 pistol.. I have put through about 1,000 rounds of various mostly cheap 22 ammo without any failures, balances really well and very accurate, all the major components are well made out of metal not plastic, nice fit and finish on mine. Very easy to take down and clean and there are some nice aftermarket interchangeable barrels etc for it so you can go to a longer fully fluted barrel, a carbon fiber barrel or whatever suits you all with the turn of the takedown screw. Some folks have said the take down screw comes loose but have
