  1. Past hour
  2. I have two Thumlers tumblers setup for SS Pin cleaning. Love the way the primer pockets get cleaned with no additional steps. Got the last one for $10 used and bought a high speed replacement motor for just under $100 and that thing is amazing. Just a word of caution, be careful if you use Nickel plated brass as the pins will wear the nickel off if left in too long, ask me how I know. I used to like to used Nickel for my BP loads.
  3. Well ..... Aummmmmm .... Just to throw some fuel on yer fire .... A toggle link rifle chambered for 45 Colt will run 45 Schofield cases all day. Onliest caveat is OAL of the cartridge. A Toggle Link (Henry, 1866 or 1873) won't like a Schofield case with a bullet shorter than a 200Gr RNFP. With a modified Carrier Block for the Toggle Link, you can also run Cowboy 45 Special in all three. The only way to play this game and not go in the poor house, is to reload. Regardless of caliber. A simple Lee Classic single stage press, and a set of dies will get you going just fine. You can even use Lee powder scoops until you get a powder measure. This is a most FUN game. PS: Forgot to add .... should you find yourself in dire need of a 3 1/2 inch .38 I would gladly introduce you to my evil twin, Hacksaw MacGurk.
  4. I sent a Taylor's Smoke Wagon Deluxe 44WCF back to Taylor's because it shot 10" to the left at 10 steps. They corrected it. The first Eliminator 8 shot at least 4" to the left. I turned the barrel in a bit and got it to about 1" to the left.
  5. Prairie Dawg, do you find ceramic cleans the primer pockets properly or are additional steps needed? I’m planning on doing a good hot soapy soak in In an ultrasonic cleaner as a first step.
  6. I use it for glue projects, especially when using PL Premium. The previous owner of our house had that awful foam insulation in the outside walls done by drilling big holes in the stucco. I have the drywall off and putting 6x6 wire mesh screens on the inside of each hole. The mesh is glued directly to the inside stucco edge. I made a jig that holds each mesh in place while the glue dries. I use wax paper between the wood jig plates and the glued mesh. After the glue is dry, I fill the hole with stucco.
  7. Cholla -read this article and you'll be a Black Powder Reloader in no time: The BP Cartridge Rifle Reloading Guide https://www.bpcr.net/site_docs-results_schedules/documents/bp_cartridge_reloading_dick_trenk.htm
  8. I put this on the Pistoleros facebook page as the home page picture! Good luck all you Pistoleros!!
  9. All of the above except polishing slides and Alox. I still wrap foods in waxed paper unless I'l going to freeze it, then I use aluminum foil.
  10. My former boss/close friend and his wife raised Shepards and Bichons. They gave us a great little Bichon and when we'd visit their place, bringing our "Mugsy" he would take over the Shepards and keep them in line. Funny as heck to watch how well they all got along together. Somewhere I have a video on old tape, that shows the Shepards being chased all around the yard by this white fluff ball. We really miss that little guy.
  11. Agreed. Point of impact that is not in a vertical line with point of aim is something I don’t tolerate. I have sold guns that had that problem. Very few revolver misses are too low, most misses go high, a few miss wide even without intentional Kentucky windage. Keeping the POI in a vertical line with POA helps to eliminate wide misses. Sighting the gun to hit a bit low when shooting over a rest helps eliminate high misses.
  12. Any revisions to rules or conventions have to be voted on by the Territorial Governors. The ROC can propose changes, as in the "cocked hammer from the loading table", but do not just change rules on their own. They can rule on interpretations. Coming out with a new version of the Handbook every time someone thinks that wording should be changed would result in a never-ending stream of "updates", sort of like the ever-present "Windows updates". We are currently using SHB Vers 23.2, just to show you how many revisions the Handbook has gone through. For 2020 there will be a new version, and as always, there will be some updates to the wording, and clarifications. But, they are trying to keep the Handbook manageable, and not publish and Encyclopedia version. Please remember that the members of the ROC are volunteers, and as all of us, have real lives, jobs, and families. They've been doing a great job, doing the best they can while balancing work/life, and other "real world" stuff. So, give them a break instead of demanding immediate fixes.
  13. Got a set of extended grips from Texas Grips to fit my large hands as I transition to gunfighter. I really like them.
  14. Yeah being competitive is not a top priority as I will only really go to local games. More about dressing up and shooting fun guns! I like the idea of using 45 Schofield. And than using 45 colt in the rifle. I would get a matching pair for sure. Maybe eventually get some trigger and action work.
  15. Here are the first 10 shots from the same Eliminator 8 that I shot the round ball loads at the beginning of this post. I'm ok with it shooting a bit low for the reason you mentioned. But I still want an accurate load and close to point of aim. I shoot with folks that have to remember to apply a lot of Kentucky windage to hit near center - often times one gun will shoot cockeyed one direction and other another.
  16. Fast Shooting What is this "Fast Shooting" of which you speak ??? I'm two days older'n'dirt and "fast" ain't in my lexicon anymore
  17. Lots of answers to this question. I use a 200gr. ACME Hi-tek coated bullet, it has a round nose but has a lip like a semi-wadcutter, and 5.0grs of W321/HP38, 1.250 OAL, this combo work great in my Mil-spec Springfield. ALWAYS check each round with case gauge.
  18. No way I could go back to college, I couldnt keep my mouth shut. Imis
  19. Use a holster made with roughout leather. No velcro needed.
  20. Ceramic also works very well. Been using a Thumbler’s tumbler with ceramic for many yeArs to clean my BP brass
  21. To coat bullets with Alox. Chocolate Oatmeal drop cookies.
  22. (Pictured Below) - 2019 Classic Cowboy Showdown... that was held in conjunctuon with the Butterfield Gulch Gang's annual in Kansas. What a great group of classics that was! So come on don't miss out sign up for the Showdown 2020
  23. I think Willie would be a servant unless he had a specific job like a cook or butler.
