  1. I have three one ounce south african krugerrands i might let go for spot price...
  2. just swap the outer grips... wood on the right on one, on the left on the other... then depending on which way you holster them, you'll have pearl facing out or wood facing out...
  3. Actually, 9x19 will drop in but so goes so far into the cylinder the firing pin would never make contact with the primer. and it gets stuck so you have to poke it out with a stick...
  4. I think I still have a pietta with 7" barrel and adjustable sites somewhere around here I would entertain rehoming for a good price... pm me if interested, I'll dig it out and get pics...
  5. I picked up 5000 federal 155's for $170 shipped back at the beginning of the plandemic and have over 3000 left. My 58's have such light springs they wont fire anything but federals. I also grabbed up 2000 CCI's for my 1911 wild bunch pistol. That thing will light off primers made of stone if such a thing existed...lol...
  6. check out the new navy arms sxs... ive heard once they are tuned they are as good as a skb...
  7. As long as those fast guys stay on their side of the Appalachians I guess I'm pretty safe. I'm not fast, just the fastest in WV, which really isn't saying much...lol... My suggestion, if you shoot one handed (not double duelist), fire the weak hand pistol first so you're drawing the strong side as you holster the weak side. My rig is double strong, no crossdraw. I switched to duelist while my rig was being made so I adapted to the rig. Honestly, I don't think I would be any faster transitioning from one pistol to the other with a crossdraw. Cut your transition times, make sure your hands are always doing something, you don't have to be a faster shooter if the other duelists stand in one spot while holstering their guns and you're moving while holstering. If the stage requires you to fire the pistols last, don't waste time holstering, just ground them. A lot of times I holster both at the same time, I'll draw the left, fire it from my right hand, transition it to my left hand and hold it, draw the right, fire it and then holster both on the move to the next shooting position but that depends on what the next gun is. Say the sequence is pistol, shotgun, rifle. I'll draw left pistol, fire it from my right hand, transfer it to my left and holster it as I'm drawing the right pistol. I fire it and as I holster the right pistol, I'm also moving to the shotgun and grabbing 2 shells with my left hand. Say its P,R,S... I'll draw the left as usual, fire, holster while drawing the right, as I'm moving and holstering the right, my left hand is reaching for my rifle. As I'm putting the rifle down, I'm already moving to the shotgun drawing two shells on the way. Make sure your hands are always doing something while you're moving.
  8. I have thousands of pieces of 45acp brass. I go to a local outdoor range and grab all I want for $5, sometimes they don't even charge me... Plus it comes in both large and small primer so I can load with whatever primers I can get my hands on... I load 45acp with 5gn of trail boss and 45 Colt with 6gn...
  9. I found an old post from mar 2020 where i picked up 5000 federal 155's for $170 shipped to my door on gunbroker and thought that price was outrageous... I refuse to pay even $.05 per primer, I'll quit shooting first... Personally I think its a ploy, create a shortage that drives prices up 4X or more, then slowly bring supply back and lower prices by 25% and all the consumers are happy that prices went down and supply is back while the manufactures are making 3x what they were before the "shortage"... 18 cents per primer, these people are crazy, i love this game but not that much...
  10. Both my 92's are saddle ring carbines. I like the look....
  11. How does it compare to the other shotguns coming out of turkey like the Iver Johnson 800?
  12. So as some of you know, I shoot a pair of stainless Uberti 1858 Remingtons with 5.5" barrels and gated kirst conversions with richard mason ejectors. They are 5 shot only but have a "safety chamber" which is basically a 6th chamber that isn't bored through to rest the hammer in. Well Walt Kirst redesigned the cylinders to be true 5 shot cylinders and with "firing pin retainers" between the 5 chambers for the firing pin to rest in as a safety. So in other words, it would be fully loaded with 5 and have the hammer down between chambers instead on in a 6th "safety chamber". I know the old design was SASS approved but is the new design? I want to buy cylinders for 45acp (to save powder) but don't want to find out my guns are now not SASS approved... here's a link: https://www.kirstkonverter.com/1858-remington.html thanks
  13. does the rifle hold 10? there is nothing on their website saying how many it holds...
