  1. I fully agree with all previous posters to get your hands on and try a lot of different firearms before you buy anything. On the other hand, can you really go wrong with a 73 in .38, especially if it's tuned by Cody Conagher? I'd buy it if it's a good offer and the rifle is in good condition. Edit: I'm typing too slow, just saw your answer. In that case, I would buy this 73 if it doesn't have any issues (but I always wonder why someone would sell a good gun, imho there can be just two reasons: quitting the game or changing the caliber, but probably I'm wrong) Equanimous
  2. +1 Especially muzzle up, but also muzzle down on concrete grounds
  3. I'm in and my bet goes to NO CALL Definitely no miss and no advantage and I can also see no P. Same if he'd hit the target with 11th round. Equanimous
  4. I would say he engaged that (already down) target with his second shot, because and because in case of doubt the benefit goes to the shooter. All other verdict would be guessing the shooter's intention... My vote's for 1 miss!
  5. I'd say let the great movies alone as in most cases it just can get worse. Instead, go for the movies that have a good story but regarding acting, camera work etc. are just mediocre or even worse, they would be worth a remake! Equanimous P.S.: No, I don't have such example as I just watch excellent movies
  6. I have to second @Tennessee williams when he says the rule is somewhat unclear and could have a different meaning if you give a closer look. ... It may be stated numerous times on the wire and probably in real life as well and (hence the reactions) it's obvious that this was the intention of the meaning of target type when the SHB was written. Nevertheless, when an unenlightened new shooter (or anybody else) reads this rule book, this intention is not apparent by its wording. And there isn't a redundancy or enhancement by the adding "with the appropriate type firearm"; the first part relates to the correct target type (whatever that means) to shoot at and the second part relates to the firearm to be used. I can absolutely live with the "commonly understood meaning" of the rule, but imho it should be reworded in the SHB to be clear. Personally, I would prefer if the term target type was used in a more specific manner. As soon as there are different target types (with different difficulties) mixed in a string (stationary, KD, big ones, small ones, further away, close), it can get difficult when to call a SOG instead of a P. Equanimous
  7. Or search for Uberti "Grizzly Paw". A pard of mine who has real big claws ordered a pair. Equanimous
  8. Everything is about personal preferences. Some like thin necks, some prefer the fatter necks. Gibson had quite a variation regarding their neck shapes and sizes over the years and there aren't two identical 335 in this world, so you have to chose your guitar carefully in a real music store according your preferences (and these often are just what you've started with and you are used to...) I am glad I found mine, a nice 345 born in 1981, one of the last made in Kalamazoo.
  9. So, that would be used ones? Always an option if in good condition
  10. Definitely one to look at, I love mine! It looks kind of shy and puristic (mine is an older one that doesn't even have a pick guard, just the inconspicuous laser engraving around the sound hole for emblazonment), but the sound is very clear and delightful due to the thin and light wood of the body. This very light 15/16 body (it's a "travel guitar") also causes a kind of weight balance you have to get used to. The action is a little high (which seems to be a common issue with this model), so I use a set of lighter strings on it. Tanglewood is another brand I can recommend. It's from the UK and I don't know how popular it is in the states: www.tanglewoodguitars.co.uk They have a large choice of acoustic guitars in different price ranges. I have one from the "Sundance Performance Pro" line and I am very happy with it. It is easy to play with a great sound that benefits from its ALL solid mahagony (top, back and sides). But, the good value for money is probably partially based on the manufacturing location as at least mine was handcrafted in Korea. So, if american made is important to you... But then, I don't know where Taylor and Martin have their guitars manufactured... Equanimous
  11. It's all about personal taste and preferences! Some like Jumbos, some like smaller bodies. Some like fancy ones, others like the simple ones. You instinctively go for the one that look appealing to you. Sometimes, you don't know what it is that caught your eye, it's just magical. You gently grab that smooth neck for the first time, carefully caress that back, feel how that body nestles to yours and soon as you hear that heavenly unique voice you instantly know this could be the beginning of beautiful relationship! That's how you find your guitar
  12. And if you like to read further discussions about this topic, here's the thread from November and this is the one from December Btw, the more significant difference than pistol grip vs. straight stock is imho the crescent rifle style vs. the flatter carbine style butt stock plate. Equanimous
  13. Doc's Old West is another one you should check: www.docsoldwest.com Equanimous
  14. (Besides reliability) For the same reason some pards wear way more than the required 5 items in Classic Cowboy and shoot guns that are not competitive regarding speed: Fun, style, playing cowboy, fun and authenticity! Oh, did I mention FUN?! If it looks like shooting an airgun and you see bullets fly it just ain't cowboy... Equanimous
