Aloha Y'all! New (pending) Pard Moseying into Town


Recommended Posts

I've lured a bit around here for a few months and have decided to take the plunge today (did my on-line SASS application 30minutes ago) on my first post; all because of a little stop I make in the stagecoach from Nebraska to Tennessee; LO AND BEHOLD, I found all my .45 Colt needs fulfilled at one location! (Blessed be the 840 of Nashville!)

The goodies...NOW WITH PICS:

Uberti el Patron SS 4.75"

Pietta Sheriff Ni 3.5"

Taurus C45 Bl (Colt Lightning clone; stop laughing, I KNOW the reputation for the Thunderbolt)

Zhong Zhou PW87 Bl (I'm glad I could make you laugh again)

Box of Atomic 200gr RNFP

Out-the-door damage to the wallet was under $2300; which is substantially less than I was expecting to pay for my first deep-dive (I stuck a toe in last year with a Henry 410  lever- I think of it as my cross-over "black gun") into the reel gun realm (I'm a recovering black gun user) where it reads that everyone is on the same page.

Well, I doubt you will have to worry to much about that alias already being taken. :)

 

Welcome.  Good luck with the Taurus!

You mean the shotgun; it is one of the accoutrements used in the dark art of black gun magic to achieve supernatural accuracy.  Like the ported XF choke in the smokey end......

You may have a small issue with the shotgun.

- Slide action shotguns must be centerfire of at least 16 gauge and no larger than 12 gauge.
 - Side-by-side, single shot, and lever action centerfire shotguns in .410 caliber and 28 or 32 gauge are allowed within the Buckaroo Category only.

Otherwise that’s a nice brace of guns you managed to get.  PM me when you get a chance IRT upcoming match.

Plenty of people will be happy to talk cowboy guns around here. Come to the saloon and ask about coffee once in a while. Plenty of coffee drinkers and caffein connoisseurs around these parts. Myself being one. :D

TS, I suspect he's planning on using the 12 ga. Model '87 for a CAS gun, not the .410 Henry.  ;)

Welcome, and you are in for a lot of praticing with that rifle shotgun combo until you get the hang of them.  I shoot an '87 and it took me several years to get comfortable with it and every now and again I forget to run that lever hard out. ;)

If you make it to KS sometime, we'll brew up a storm for you.  I recommend coming here before I finish off the Ethiopian beans my dad picked up in Addis Ababa on his last trip.

He shouldn’t use that ‘87, he should sell it to me instead :ph34r: ;) I love train wrecks :lol:

I think you might be surprised, we're a very punny group round here.  But I think the name is safe just the same.  If it's not, add in something about a train conductor for all the trainwrecks you'll be presiding over due to your choice in guns.

Welcome pard - don't worry as much about the guns so long as they pass the rules, it's your starter kit... soon you'll have more cowboy guns than you'll know what to do with.
