  1. I use my Sharp-Tail Coach Gun for skeet every now and then and do well with it. Haven't shot a 25 with it but have shot a couple of 24's. The guys I shoot with get a hoot out of it. :-) The open chokes aren't that great for trap or sporting clays.

  3. I know better but here it goes. :-) After reading this I did some experimenting today with the slowest gun to reload....a Colt style action. These are my times from last shot to reloaded shot. Some may be quicker. 1. Traditional style: Two shot shot reload with one gun shooting traditional style: 5.3 seconds Use to be quicker years ago. 2. Traditional style: Two shot reload shooting one round from first revolver, then loading one round and continue string and doing the same with other gun. 5.8 seconds. My reload from my first shot, open gate, put hammer on half cock, put round in empty chamber and shoot again = 2.4 seconds x 2 = 5.8 seconds. Problem with this method is you could messed up on the order. 3. Gunfighter: Had both guns out and fired one round from left revolver. Holstered left revolver and loaded two in right gun. 5.7 seconds. Put right gun on half cock and open gate while holstering left gun. Sorry, I don't see this as a gunfighter unfriendly stage. Those who practice will succeed, those that don't.......won't. Just like it has always been.
  4. Like Phantom said, stoopid low price. Hasn't been that low in 18-20 years. Here's you some load data: http://merlin555.free.fr/pn/Vihtavuori_Cowboy_Data.pdf
  5. Matt Masterson offered them several years ago. Have one on my main match rifle. The tubes are an odd size and finding the correct size is hard. If memory serves me right, he bought the tube in bulk from a special mfg. for construction of nuclear power plant cooling towers. Not an easy task......... We were his distributors back then. Like Scarlett, we also sell Jimmy Spur's aluminum and Sure Hit carbon inserts. They're both a good product and takes care of the rusty factory tube problem.
  6. Thank you Buckshot Bob, Enjoyed seeing Ruger's new process. Plus we can see why no 1894's are being produced. It will take a completely different machining and assembly line. I'm sure they're working on it, or at least hope they are.
  7. Lucky you shot only four. Need to clean a smokeless gun really well before going to black. Don't mix the two without cleaning or you'll end up with fouling that resembles concrete.
  8. Wow Widder, that's the first one I've ever heard breaking. Maybe you should slow down. :-)
  9. Howdy, We had a few customers say the end of the push rod had a slight hang-up pulling it out of the loading gate. We redesigned the pusher with a new tapered end to alleviate the problem. If you ordered a speed loader and have experienced this issue, please email us your address at jim@longhunt.com and we'll send you a new end piece at no charge.

  11. That's terrible news Ed, A needless tragedy that shouldn't have happed. Hell be missed by many. Condolences to Brian's family.
  12. Turnbull finished the USFA Premium guns. USFA owed him for that work and that's why he ended up with the inventory. To clear the debt. At least that's what I was told back then.
  13. Yes, it is 100% US made. Turnbull received most of the parts when USFA went out of business for payment owed. Any DT serial numbered gun is built from those parts and finished by Turnbull. Nice guns!! Edit for value: The last one I had in the box sold for $2,300.
  14. DoctorWho, IMHO, sometimes they insert them from the factory with bluing salts in still in the threads and they lock up. Take a punch and insert it in one of the holes at an angle and tap it to break loose. Then use the spanner wrench. Email me your order number to jim@longhunt .com. and I'll send you a new spanner wrench. Pleas don't reorder. Thanks, Long Hunter
  15. Handlebar Doc, Billy Boots and I have a lot of good memories together. Those were "our" good ol days. :-) Todd has been super busy the last 15-20 years teaching our Military and NATO countries how to shoot extreme long range. He's a world class instructor that's traveled the planet sharing his skills. His son Colby is now instructing with/for Todd in many cases but he's still very busy. Billy, I'll see ya at the Pampa match. Not shooting but will be there Saturday. Visited with Todd today and he said him and Eddie will try to show up one day for a visit. They're going to be in Montana that week but should be home in time to come by. Todd would would love to see ya Billy. They're shooting Sporting Clays and are really good at it. Meet up with them a few times a year at local matches. Shot with them weekend before last and as normal, they spanked me like a new born baby. :-) At least I'm getting some free lessons while I'm learning.
  16. Sorry, Only have them for the .357/38 for now. Thank you, Long Hunter
  17. Snakebite, I've added the links to the original post. The bottom link is the speed loader holsters. They are in the process of being made. It may be a couple of week before we receive our inventory. I do have a black, brown and mahogany one in stock. If I see the order come through for one of these three, we'll send it out. Used the brown holder for the video. Thanks
  18. Howdy, Here's a short unprofessional video about how to use our new speed loaders: https://www.longhunt.com/storelh/index.php?route=product/product&path=88_96&product_id=441 https://www.longhunt.com/storelh/index.php?route=product/product&path=88_96&product_id=442 https://www.longhunt.com/storelh/index.php?route=product/product&path=88_96&product_id=443 IMG_0242_Trim.mp4
  19. Howdy, We launched a new product today. It's the solid brass lever action "Match and Practice Speed Loaders". Fast and efficient loaders. Mernickle Holsters is designing a "Speed Loader Holster" for the match loader to fit at an angle on the back of the gun belt. The "Match Loader" holds five .357/38sp rounds and is 11.5" long and weighs 7.4 ounces. The "Practice Loader" holds ten .357/38sp rounds and is 18.5" long and weighs 11.4 ounces. Here are the links: https://www.longhunt.com/storelh/index.php?route=product/product&path=88_96&product_id=441 https://www.longhunt.com/storelh/index.php?route=product/product&path=88_96&product_id=442 Thank you, Long Hunter
