  1. I definitely rushed through certain things I could have done better on. I’m learning that I’m my worst flaw when I’m nervous.
  2. Between the course, a new gun, the rounds I’ve spent practicing, and the gunsmithing work for a new dovetail, it’s all helped my wallet lose weight!
  3. I passed 96 on the written and 85 on the range here in Ohio today. Now all of you know I’m no threat for competing at matches. Cheers.
  4. I didn’t realize that’s a thing. So I could just buy inserts for say, my Stevens then?
  5. Like the title says, I keep seeing 28 gauge as about the only ammo in stock still at places like Walmart. I get the sense it isn’t far too common. From what I’ve seen, mostly a skeet and bird gun? It looks popular in Europe. Considering that I picture periodic ammo shortages are always going to be a thing, can anyone recommend an economical and decent choice in 28 gauge? I’m just looking at something to plink with and maybe someday get into fowling with.
  6. If any of you are swayed by this thread to change teams, I will more than happily accept your old team drafts.
  7. As the collection is steadily growing, it’s time for me to consider a safe. I’m looking for something in the 12 long gun capacity with some shelving for side arms and ammo. Does anyone have some good suggestions? Should I also include a fire-rating in my search? Do these make good safes to include your valuables in as well? I’ve been trying to do my own research, but I also consider the anecdotes of the experiences cowboys and shooters here.
  8. This thread is kind of choking me up. We had to put down my girlfriend’s Doberman, Lady, almost two years ago now. It started with a limp in her leg and yelping. A few x-rays later, and we had a rapidly growing mass into the poor thing’s spine. Stacy wanted to do hospice care at home for as long as she could, but when it got to the point of Lady having to drag her hindquarters unable to walk, I finally put my foot down and said I couldn’t watch it anymore. I wasn’t mean about it. I just said that I couldn’t stomach watching her dog in that much pain, and we had a heart
  9. The only one specifically made for it is the military holster, but there are private makers like Ramora holsters that I’ve been in contact with that say a model or two of theirs will work. The owner of Ramora actually got back to me an hour after emailing their website the other morning. I’m inclined to chance a product on that customer service.
  10. Send the hate messages now: I’m looking at either high-ride OWB or a cross-draw. I’ve gotten into the habit of layering in the winter with vests and wear pearl snap Western shirts in the summer.
  11. Ironically here in Ohio, open carry jd absolutely fine. However I work in addictions and mental health and see a lot of professional colleagues and clientele in the community some times. I did see on Liberty Tree a flap-down leather military holster for this model and an extra magazine. Most people I don’t think would put two and two together immediately with that style holster as the gun then wouldn’t be visible. Plus if I’m wearing my usual button ups in the summer untucked, it would have some coverage.
  12. Looking to get a holster once I get the iron sights restored on Zastava M70. So my questions for you: Leather or Kydex? IWB or OWB? An option that can be used for both? Leave room for possible digital optics options?
  13. I’ll take it to the smith and see what he can wizard up.
  14. I could probably find 1911 sights a lot easier than I could another M70 or Tokarev.
