  1. I would love to have that, but it is probably on the ban list here in Illinois. I am certain the 40rd mag is on the list. Good luck.
  2. I had been to Floyd's house several times and he was in bad shape the last time I saw him. (10+ years ago)( he died in 2018) He started by making springs for fast draw and had extra light, light and medium springs. I still have some of his springs and they are working well. The last time I was there, I bought several pairs and might have a extra pair of them, I will have to look. I know one other shooter that used his springs and had some extra's, but he quit shooting cowboy and I could check with him if I can find his number.
  3. I get 44 160 grain Bullets from Storm Reins Bullets in Tyler Texas. I can pm you his number if you like.
  4. I shot a pair of Stainless Steel 7.5 in Virginian Dragoons for about 10 years as my main match guns and deer hunted with them. They were great guns. I sold them and went to shooting Colt New Frontiers. If I had found a pair of 6 inch ones, would probably be shooting them. I will have to give this some thought.
  5. Go to Goodwill or an estate sale and buy an old toaster. The best popcorn poppers I ever got was from an antique store and I have 2 of them and the ex-wive has one of them. I checked my toaster and it has a lever that goes from light to dark. Probably an 60's or 70's model I got at a thrift store after my divorce. I gave somewhere between $3 to $5 for it.
  6. Sunny and clear here. At a friends place in Olney Il, bought pork burgers and brats and sat out side and saw it. Took a couple quick looks during the full part with the glasses, made for a cool effect to see but my phone did not get a good picture to share. traffic was a mess everywhere.
  7. You all can come over to my place. We will have 90.7% coverage of the sun at the peak and it starts at 2:12 pm, Totality begins at 2:53 pm, Max coverage at 3:26 pm, Totality ends 3:59 pm, Partial ends at 4:36 pm. I guess the whole afternoon will be shot for getting anything done. The forecast for here is partly cloudy and about 70 degrees. I bought a pair of glasses for $4. The gas station I get gas at had sign that stated they were out of glasses. Looks like all stations were open here and had gas. They have been having a bunch of events celebrating here since Friday evening mostly at the fairgrounds. I have been mostly at home.
  8. I had one in 44 mag. Wish I had not sold it. It was a good rifle, used it for a backup for my Marlins.
  9. Local shop has one in stock, he may be willing to ship. I think it had 28 inch barrels. Let me know if you don't find one.
  10. I Could offer 10LBs of Trail Boss for it. Nice Motorcycle My dad talk about riding on the gas tank and my grandmother riding on the back of his stepfather's motorcycle. I believe it was an Indian. I will show him the pictures.
  11. Thanks for the replies. I got a 5lb jug for $275.00 and thought that it was an ok price. I put it in the safe next to the 5lb jug I got in 2017 that had a price of $140 on it.
  12. I went to National Gun Day in Louisville, Ky today and found a 5lb jug of Trail Boss. After a bit of talking, we agreed on a price. What would you all consider a reasonable price? After I hear back from you all, I will post the price I paid. Thanks
  13. you can not receive messages. I may have a gun cart if you need one. Maddog

  14. I thought you sold these a while back. If you don't sell the pair ( 1 & 2) you have been shooting, send me a message and we can discuss them. Somebody buy these as I have been spending too much money lately. Bump for a friend. Maddog McCoy
  15. I have gotten a Nickel Stoger in 12ga for the Plainsmatch and Sidekick is picking up 3 black powder revolvers for me and 12 ga reloader at EOT that I got here on the wire. Since I have my trapdoor, I have the guns now for Plainsman match and if I can figure out how to make the ammo, I am good to go. I am begining to think I will see if I can load some black for my regular match rifle that I may shoot Frontiersman. I will figure it out in the couple weeks.
  16. When I go in to a restaurant I tell them I want a corner in the back by the wall. They look at me funny and will try to seat me in the middle of the room in a crowd. Usually I end up telling them that I don't hear well and I want a quiet place so I can talk to the person I am with. Most of the time it works. I was in a restaurant with my Mom and Dad a while back and they seated us under a TV that was blasting and a bunch that was watching a game on it. The girl came up and asked for our order and my dad and I just looked at her and never heard a word she said. She looked kinda irritated and repeated herself and my mom spoke up and to her neither of us could hear her over the noise. She got them to turn the tv down and talked louder when she came back. The manager came over an offered a different table but there was no anywhere in the place that was any better. The hard part for me was she had a voice that blended into the noise that was hard to pick out. Most of the time I am ok but the ringing in my ears get really loud sometimes and other times it is quieter. It started when I was about 14 and a bicycle tire blew out when I was airing it up with the air compressor. Shooting and working in factory years without hearing protection has not helped.

  17. Thanks everybody. I usually buy shotgun shells as work interferes with my time to get stuff done. I use cheap promotional loads for local matches, and trap, and AA or STS for big matches. I will probably just order 2 or 3 boxes to start, then if I find I need more, I have several 100 AA hulls or I will get some brass hulls and try making some. Maddog McCoy
  18. Does anybody know where I can buy some 20ga Black powder shells? I will be shooting black powder some this year and I only have 20ga shotguns. I am looking for shells with black powder or Black powder substitute. I don't reload shotgun shells and would need like 6-10 boxes. :angry: Maddog McCoy :angry:
  19. Twenty Dollars Apiece On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed. This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed. Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined. Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank. She explained that for the more than three decades she had 'charged' him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments. Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, 'If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!' That's when she shot him. You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut.
