  1. Hot coffee sounds great. Any hot water is a splendid BP solvent. I know the Civil War reenactor cannon guys just pour hot water in it and dump it out, then they’re ready for supper while the infantry guys are still cleaning. If I was single I might just wash the pistols in the kitchen sink anyway.
  2. I usually use Ballistol and alcohol mix. Same ratio. The alcohol evaporates quicker than water. I use either mix at times. My habit of alcohol is mostly based on use in the cap n ball where I don’t want any water residue in the chambers.
  3. Eyesa, as you know I run real BP constantly, 2 matches per month. And I clean my bolt/extractor once a year. Whether it needs it or not. In my 38/40. I know, that’s no help at all. My actual point is the bypass elimination that one gets from the tapered case. The annealing of your 45 cases is as close to that as you can get with a straight wall case. Also, 44/40 cases appear to be scarce these days, so annealing your 45s becomes an even better idea. My 38/40 BP carrier/bolt area is a LOT cleaner than my C45S carrier and bolt with smokeless! See ya soon!
  4. So very sorry. We let our 14 year old Golden go last October, feels like last week. It's difficult because we care about them so much, almost as much as they care about us. Hard as it is we can't stay away from it. We now have a 4 month old Golden, from the same breeder. Doing it all again!
  5. You both earned it, congratulations!
  6. A pard shoots FCGF and says he can shoot it faster double duelist than he can GF. He has shot duelist or DD for years and recently took up GF.
  7. I have used grits, COW, cornmeal, farina, whatever I had along those lines. But I only use it in my 50/70 for Plainsman.
  8. Nice boardwalk, and it was easy to sweep the hailstones off it too! We’ve now made it from VT to New Orleans, should be there in a few more days.
