  1. Marshall, I'd call your U.S. Rep. They have people in their office that deal with all types of complaints. Often a simple phone call from the office of a U.S. Rep or Senator can burn through a lot of stupid. And this just sounds stupid. Honestly, they are at fault for cashing a money order (their own money order!) that had been altered. The USPS is an independent agency under the executive branch, but all federal spending originates in the U.S. House.
  2. I sit in a rocker on my front porch 24/7 with my side by side full of buckshot while our twelve cats patrol the property. Anyone comes by I call them varmints and tell'em to get away from my stash before I ventilate them. So far so good...
  3. It might sound like hyperbole, but the future of SASS and most other competitive shooting sports could will depend on who is elected in Georgia. The one thing that the federal government can control is interstate commerce. It's possible that they could make it very difficult to ship ammunition or ammunition components from state to state. And while most components can be produced in a cottage industry setting, primers are the exception. We should use the pain that the current primer shortage is inflicting on us as a spur to urge each and everyone of us to do anything we can to help Purdue and
  4. I saw a thread that was a couple years old that mentioned grinding down a socket to fit the nuts that keep the firing pins in on a Cimarron coach gun. I found this Craftsman socket on Amazon, and it fits without grinding. Just thought I'd let anyone else who was interested know it was available. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QF1CCBC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. ^^^^^^^^^^^^There is a lot of this going on^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^peer pressure to conform to the neo-puritans' agenda
  6. Normally, I would never support any requirement for buying a firearm, but I think I could get behind this one!
  7. I checked and I have two hundred already sorted that I'll send out to you on Monday or Tuesday. They are mixed head stamps. Some are deprimed and some aren't. I've also got about eight gallons of .45 that I haven't sorted yet. Cleaning and sorting through those is on my to do list so when I get another pot of small primers I'll be glad to send those along too. I'm just glad to have someone who will use them. Cheers
  8. I hate those dang small primer .45s! I'll be glad to send you some. I'll pay the shipping just to get them out of my sight. All I ask in return is to have the opportunity to posse with you if I ever make it out to Tombstone. PM me your address and I'll see how many I can get in a USPS shipping box.
  9. When the remake came out I expected to hate it, instead I was impressed with the realism and the fact that they stayed true to the book and the original movie. Having said that I find the first film much more entertaining. I think both are well done. The book is also excellent and a quick read. Both movies stayed as true to the book as any movie can. Not to shatter anyone's illusions but here's a pic from the filming of the second film that popped up in my Facebook feed a few days ago.
  10. Prayers for you and your wife.
  11. Some of our local cowboy shooters are running low on primers. There's a little trading going on and concern for the next few months. This is tough cause down here in Florida these are the best months for shooting. With USPSA things are a worse. There are more younger shooters that don't reload. Our last USPSA match was down to twenty-five shooters when we would normally have over fifty. Of course it is going to take a while for everyone to get stocked back up once the flow of primers and ammo returns to normal. So the first few months will be almost as bad as now because anyone who has run dry
