  1. This is a MONTANA bill. Please, please make it clear in the post what state these actions are for. Of if it Federal. Thanks
  2. I get mine in Tombstone AZ. Discovered this place while traveling around before Winter Range; been back a couple times. This hard wax does not produce the tight curl that Fence Cutter showed. I used to use Clubman for that look. This wax keeps the shape without making the tight curl. I think I've used it once in the last 11 months, but that's a different topic.
  3. Yeah, it wasn’t open because the match was already full! So much for that plan. looking forward to ‘22 in Phoenix!
  4. I'm planning on it, as soon as registration opens. It wasn't open yet a minute ago.
  5. The direct pressure used on extremities (arms/legs) is pressure against the underlying bone. Lacking bone in the abdomen makes direct pressure there less effective. Yet it's still slightly better than nothing at all. Try to direct that pressure towards the spine for a little more effect. The bleeding will continue internally. QuikClot sponge is very good, avoid the QC that is a loose granule as that has to be cleaned out later in the OR when the patient already has a lot to deal with. I have not seen the granule version is a long time. It's like your leaking garden hose, compress it
  6. To me, the movie mistake is waiting until the chamber is flooding to open your tank. Pretty late to find out you have a regulator/tank problem.
  7. I just took mine off from the trigger finger side. It doesn't seem to matter. The hole is covered by the holster. I am not in a dusty climate, that would be a different situation. As for taking it off, when I have switched hands so the right gun is in my left hand and thus the screw is under my trigger finger I do not notice it, so the whole idea is really irrelevant to my shooting. I normally shoot double duelist so there is a left gun - left hand pattern. But for the past year I was recovering from rotator cuff surgery and so was shooting all left handed (weak side) but I didn't ch
  8. Dang it. I have been expecting this. I didn't see how it could happen in just 3 months. But since we had already decided we could not make a winter 3-4 month camping trip with WR as the center piece it actually offers me a wee bit of relief. Instead of sitting here in the snow thinking of what I'm missing... oh wait, I'll be doing that anyway. But missing a cancelled event might feel a tich better than missing an existing event. But I have been to the last 4 Winter Ranges, it was a great time and I fully look forward to EOT with this great team in 2022!
  9. Still getting this message: Sorry, there is a problem This attachment is not available. It may have been removed or the person who shared it may not have permission to share it to this location. Error code: 2C171/1
  10. I have not had them break. I've used Wolff, some from Happy Trails, some no-name from Brownells. I have even ground down a couple myself. When I do that I hold it in my fingers. Can't overheat a spring if I can still hold it in my fingers. My fingers aren't that tough!
  11. I shoot a TTN (now imported by Cimarron) in Frontiersman for the same "Looks right & fun" reasons. I really like it. I have an original Colt 1878 and when I lay them side by side you can see just how close a copy it is! Yes, it is a bit heavy, that means it is solid and durable. The Colt 1878 was a top grade gun in the day; I think this one is too.
  12. Mighty Fine! Leaving for AZ next week, going to be a nice long drive with the camper.
  13. Retired at 62 & love it. My sentence was up! It was the earliest I could get out with full benefits even though it was 3 months short of 30 years. I checked the math, if I worked to the full 30 I'd get enough extra pension for a good cup of coffee each month. Was not going to work April through June for that! I now have three "jobs", one for small pay, one stipend and one volunteer. But each one is because I want to do it and all are on my schedule and I'm taking 2 months off without asking anyone's "permission".
  14. A leather worker friend told me to use water to shrink the leather or alcohol to stretch it. I've done that with holsters, boots and a few other leather items.
