  1. Deuce,

    I'll read the wire but rarely respond.

     

    Jim and TL are pioneers concerning competition guns in this game and I admire and respect both these men.  Along with Wes flowers and Lassiter, they inspired me.  Very few know the trial and error it took to bring our guns to the level of performance expected from today's shooter's. I respect these pioneers of our sport. Everyone else should too.  

     

    Jim may have all the work he needs today without having to spend his days answering a phone. If he wants anyone's advice, he'll ask. We have spent time together alone discussing our business's. Had the same private discussions with Wes Flowers who was a dear friend. Spent time with Lassiter at his house and range when Handlebar Doc and I would shoot the Ohio match. I know these men and the trials and errors they went through to improve the guns of our game.

     

    These four guys deserve our respect and admiration for being trail blazers. I sure as hell admire them!! The best advice I could give the wire is speak up if asked and shut up about their business if not. They have been there, done that. 

     

    Rant over,

    Long Hunter

  2. "Are the Old Model frames from old stock? Will they eventually go to the Hammer safety firing pin thingy on those too?"

     

    Yes and Uberti says they will but I'm not in the war room with them and Cimarron. :-) Guess they can make any deal they want.

     

    I'm like you Doc, never shot so slow I could count the clicks after the buzzer went off. Guess I need to slow down and enjoy the guns more. :-)

  3. For what's it's worth since our business is brought up here, I never said stay away from Pietta's. I said Uberti's have better quality control so we made a business decision to only sell and work on them through the website. We do sell Pietta's in the store. Mostly their black powder guns.  As stated by others, I'll respectively ignore any further comments about me or my business.

     

    As far as the Old Model frames still having the magical 4 clicks, Rye Miles is correct.

  4. There's zero difference installing a short stroke in a straight stock or pistol grip. It can vary a little from rifle to rifle regardless of the stock configuration. Never noticed any difference in how the sights set between the two. Have notice the sights can vary a lot depending on how I mount the rifle after the buzzer goes off. :-)

  5. Widder,

    I'm not surprised either. There are guns I call campfire guns and then there are guns I call competition guns. 

    Campfire guns = hey, look how smooth this one feels while showing it off around the campfire and not competing. The problem is a slow hammer hammer fall sets a speed limit.

    Competition gun = hey, look how this one functions when it counts. 

    'IMO, no one will every compete competitively with a campfire gun."

     

    Seems like a lot of the newer shooters are convinced they need a campfire gun when a competition gun that goes bang every time with a quick hammer fall is what's really needed. Been there done that myself. :-)

  6. SS,

    I had a lot fun 10-15 years ago with our banter back and forth about Colt's and USFA's. Glad to hear you're doing okay. You've been a great educator for the Colt's over the years and I really appreciate it. FYI, I collect Colts now. Haha

    Take care,

    Long Hunter
