  1. The competition model isn't too bad. If I had only the options you describe, I'd certainly run one at a match, and I would never do that with one that was stock out of the box. I don't know how good the internals are, or how long they'll last. But Wildbeard should bring you up to speed! Cheers, FJT
  2. Growing up in ranch country, we learned that this ride has an end pretty quickly. We loved 'em, and cared for them, but the country can be a harsh mistress, and they do come and go. If my ol' man ever heard it cost $3000 to fix a pet, he'd have exploded in disbelief. I can still hear him saying, "Kids, Muffy's gone to heaven. And God'll make another cat." One of my sisters once spent a load on her cat. I remember dad shaking his head. "$3,000 dollars on a CAT? Hell, I'm I'm not sure I would have spent $3,000 bucks on one of you kids!" Cheers, FJT
  3. You'll be glad you did.... Cheers, FJT
  4. It WAS a great match. 'Zona and Barbwire outdid themselves. And Union Jack was lights out!!! Fun being on his posse... Congrats to all the winners. Look forward to a Chronicle article on the match. Cheers, FJT
  5. Drat; I didn't make the cut. I'd have loved to have made it out to Indiana. A LOT of good folks out there... Cheers, FJT
  6. Thank you for asking; Lauren is up and at 'em once again, and even got up on a horse, today. Ah, to be young and strong! Thanks for listening in, FJT
  7. Thanks for the many useful and humorous replies. Armed with your collective information, a deal was struck; both buyer and seller were pleased. Best wishes to all, FJT
  8. I have a fellow is is hot to buy my Marlin 19894; 20 inch octagonal barrel, pre-Remington, regular cut rifling, one piece titanium firing pin. I haven't had it out for several years, and I could use the $$$. Can anyone suggest what a fair market price would be? Thanks, FJT
  9. Good movie, and they got quite a lot about the event correct. Bless the lads. Cheers, FJT
  10. I have broken at least a half dozen Ruger transfer bars. Ruger's service is second to none, but at best, that is shutting the barn door after the horses are out... Cheers, FJT
  11. A few local clubs have begun allowing .22s to be used at their monthly matches. They do have more ignition volume, and whack the steel harder than some of the loads that a few .38 shooters are using. And they're helping to get some new shooters through the current ammo shortage. Cheers, FJT
  12. My prayers and best wishes to them both. They've gone through more than most could stand, just in the last month. Prayers, FJT
  13. Signs of health also exist. At the last Hole In The Wall match there were six new shooters. Most were under 40. A couple of them were under 14. Any game needs a farm team! Cheers, FJT
  14. Not quite in the window mentioned, but too good not to post. The Last Stand, in Florida; circa 2003... Lefty Longridge, Lusty Lil, Lead Dispencer, and FJT... Cheers, FJT
  15. Joyeux Noël et bonne année, Curly! Looking forward to seeing you in 2012!
