  1. Having lived in Mancos, you can't beat Dolores. It is beautiful there. Lake McFee is huge. The high country is minutes away. If I wasn't still working I would want to move back to my happy place.
  2. Sorry but you need to be a SASS member to sell on this board.
  3. Like the buffalo, the vast stockpiles of surplus M2 ball ammo is gone except for those that are now reselling it at $1.50 a round. IMR 4895 and RL-12 are both listed as powders for the M1 Garand, with IMR-4895 being the go-to powder.
  4. A self bow is a one-piece bow made from a branch or sapling, no laminations, etc. I started making one years ago, but gave up trying to peel the bark off after it was dry, without breaking the next layer of wood. I have since learned, while making log furniture, that if one cuts the branch or sapling in the months that the leaves are forming (April and May) most tree bark peels right off like a sock. The best bows are made from Osage Orange, then hickory and ash. I tore up my elbow pulling back a bow, to the point just pulling my cell phone out of my breast pocket about put me to my knees. Aft
  5. It looks like someone was going to load for an M1 Garand. I wish I was closer...
  6. Here is another example. This was made by a well-known Zia (New Mexico) Native American potter recently.
  7. I photographed this is the Reel West exhibit in 2018. Notice the belt buckle. It's from 1931.
  8. I'll have to send my ostrich-feather cape to the cleaners first!
  9. Before anyone gets in a huff, the swastika symbol was used by Native American as a good luck symbol for hundreds of years before Hitler decided to use it. It is also known as the Whirling Logs. Many pre-WWII Navajo rugs and pottery displayed the symbol. Many holsters in the day also had the swastika on them as did conchos and belts. Some Native American artists are now reclaiming the symbol and putting it on their artwork.
  10. So... you're saying there no Liberace or Elton John shooting category?
  11. Just so we are clear, I assume the footwear requirements don't apply if the shooter has physical limitations and can't wear common styles. Both my wife and daughter have had foot operations. One wears AFOs (braces), the other has pins in her feet, so they wear Billy Shoes https://billyfootwear.com/
  12. Canon made a 400D about 15 years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EOS_400D The battery for it was the NB-2LH Battery Pack The 40D uses BP-511A, BP-514, BP-511, BP-512.
  13. And I live about five miles from IR. This was my view a week ago. Yes, real estate is inflated. It has been for decades. Pick a place a little farther out and prices go down. But we are in the top ten places to retire. Yavapai County has three SASS clubs.
  14. Thanks for the offer but I can't use it. My camera is a Canon 60D and the battery is different.
  15. 1. Canon 100mm Macro Lens EF 1:2.8 (Non-USM) manual/auto focus $150 shipped 2. Tamron AF 17-50mm 1:2.8 (IF) telephoto lens. $150 shipped I take good care of my camera gear. They have been stored in an air-conditioned space since the day I owned them. No, I don't have the boxes. What you see is what you get. There's nothing wrong with them. I just have too much camera gear that I don't use. PayPal, Venmo, MO or check if you're a SASS member.
  16. Two that seem to be 64", one that is marked 36" 40-60#, and unmade strings. I no longer have a desire to make or use a selfbow. My elbow is tore up. All for $20 shipped. Sold Paypal, Venmo, check, or MO is acceptable.
  17. There is the Pioneer Museum just north of Phoenix.
  18. Be sure to also check out the NCOWS clubs in Indiana. The NCOWS nationals used to be in Evansville. They may have moved to Kansas. But, the SASS state finals is at the same site that EOT is at so you can also shoot in it.
  19. Having lived in Indiana, here's the format: Sweat your hind end off, have a hard time gripping your guns while shooting because of how slick the grips get, try to see the targets with salt in your eyes, go take a break in your car with the a/c on full blast, shoot the last stage thinking this wasn't worth the drive, then on the way home wish that EOT 2022 wasn't so far away.
  20. One never knows. Most folks won't cast themselves in a bad light when asked. She says no.
  21. No insulation in it. It is just the canvas shell and a felt liner. I would say not a cold weather item as is. A large mummy bag may fit as insulation. It is very cowboy-ish but not something to use backpacking.
  22. FPE= Federal Pacific Electric if I remember correctly. Any FPE panel should instantly be changed or get good homeowners and life insurance. Worst design ever. Worse than the old GE (?) panels with aluminum buss bars. I forget the other name manufacturer that used the same style breakers as FPE. Edit: If you can hear a sizzling sound in your panel or you can make the lights flicker or dim by pushing on a breaker, you need to change the panel and breakers. If an outlet sizzles or is discolored or if plugs seem to just fall out, replace them.
