  3. I shot some BP substitute in my Marlin 94 and didn't clean it as soon as I should have and parts inside the receiver got rusty. Cleaned them good and oiled them. After some time with no use I checked the rifle and the rust was back. Is there something I can do to prevent the rust from returning? Never had this problem with real BP
  4. The threat of “sweeping restrictions” being proposed to restrict target shooting on private property brought locals crowding into the Board of Supervisors’ normally quiet meeting in Springfield Township, Pa., Sept. 24. Several measures were formally proposed in the meeting, and rumors had suggested even more would be. Most of the proposed items were rejected, but one banning target shooting at night passed. Cal Huntzinger, a local who attended the Board of Supervisors meeting, told America’s 1st Freedom that word of the possible restrictions “got everyone’s dander up.” “We found out about it and we showed up in a heartbeat. I took four of my friends—we rode down in my pickup truck. When I called them, it took about three seconds for them to be like ‘Yeah, we'll be there!’" He said the Board of Supervisors was trying to address complaints mostly from new residents in the area who “get a little perturbed when people are banging away at night,” but longtime residents weren’t having it. “Some people move here from Manhattan and places like that, to restore a farmhouse and such. But it's rural here, with a tradition of hunting, fishing, NRA—you name it. … The people complaining maybe shouldn’t have moved here because it’s like that.” Springfield Township is in rural Bucks County, about an hour north of Philadelphia. It has a population of roughly 5,000 people and spans about 31 miles. Township Manager Michael Brown told America’s 1st Freedom in a phone call that “a bunch of people thought [the restrictions were] about the Second Amendment, but [they were] not.” (He tried to retract this comment, noting it was his opinion, not an official stance.) He said the discussion was more about the distinction of shooting ranges as either primary or secondary uses of land and provided an example of a private landowner inviting 50 people to shoot all weekend: “At what point does it go beyond accessory use to become a primary use as a range?” he said. That question apparently was not resolved in the standing-room-only meeting, though, as none of the measures adopted addressed it. According to the meeting minutes, the five-member Board of Supervisors responded to the public by: Rejecting restrictions for private land on how many people could shoot, what days shooting would be allowed, and the size of the property where shooting could take place. Lowering the minimum acreage required for public shooting ranges from 75 to 25. Extending protection from noise ordinances to landowners’ guests when target shooting on private land (the landowners are already exempt). Restricting target shooting on private land to the hours between 7 a.m. and dusk. Locals continued to raise concerns about the daylight restriction. One person noted that landowners would not be able to zero in telescopic sights at night and another that hunting of coyotes and raccoons at night could be mistaken for target shooting, potentially causing a complaint and thus wasting public resources. The show of strength for the Second Amendment demonstrates how important it is for gun-rights advocates to oppose any attempts to restrict our right to keep and bear arms. The NRA’s network of grassroots volunteers also can use your help to ensure we elect candidates who respect the Second Amendment next November.
  5. We need to get one of those to have at the range! Maybe needs a seat and holster scabbards.
  6. Now this is something really special.....if I wasn’t on fixed income!
  7. It's just the luck of the draw. I've swapped out hammers on upwards to a dozen Uberti Cattleman and had no problems. One even corrected a timing problem. Then I've had to basically rebuild a new (but previously owned) Cimarron Eliminator. Only way to know is to try it and find out. You'll need a hammer anyway. But don't get out hones unless you fell real confident you know what you're doing.
  8. Yankees are playing some terrible baseball, they're choking!! I don't like either team, in fact I hate 'em so GO NATIONALS!!
  9. Man, did I misjudge this thread. I thought you meant you needed a bigger walker, like this:
  10. Also have a pair of pieta frontiers, 357, 4.5 barrels nice smooth action, color case hardened with low hammers and engraved wood grips. Basically new as bought and shot maybe 200 rounds and are safe queens. Can send pics if interested. $1250.
  11. Today
  12. I cancelled my Cabelas card and account when they switched to Capital One. Coincidentally, that was the same time Bass Pro took over, and when most of the stuff I shopped Cabelas for disappeared. I toss their mail flyers in the trash without opening them, and delete email the same way.
  13. You need more recoil. I've not had any issues changing out hammers in Piettas or Ubertis myself; timing has remained the same in the 3-4 guns I've messed with. If you do have trouble seems Slick McClade is down your way, and if he can't I'm sure someone at your local clubs will know how to fix them.
  14. I have only timed one revolver when I changed a cylinder on an old High Standard. I got lucky. I have changed many hammers on Ruger Vaqueros and no timing changes were needed. I do not know the internal workings of Pietta’s or any Colt clones as I have never owned one. I am pretty savvy and handy with guns and smithing them myself ... But, if timing is necessary I would pay the money to have it done right. It may cost you less in the long run. my dos centavos
  15. Bass Pro / Cabela’s sent me a survey. I was going to delete the email and move in but then I thought, “why not!” Besides the fishing for info they should already know as I am a “club” member they asked if I planned to purchase anything with them soon, if I would recommend them to friends and family and a question about my experiences with “Bass Pro”...they didn’t ask about Cabela’s. This tells me the BP cancer is at stage 4 for any semblance of Cabela’s to remain anything like it’s former self. I gave every question the very lowest setting in my answer. I think it’s ironic that I have just placed 2 orders with “Cabela’s” this past week and now I get a survey. Here’s the kicker; The first order I placed I thought I burned the last of my points to get a set of 9mm Luger reloading does but the bastages charged my card, not my points. So, yesterday I ordered a few Lee Pro-locks (I think that’s what they are called) to burn my points. To show me just how far BP has taken Cabela’s. I had to jump through hoops just to be able to use my measly $63.85 pittance worth of points. Anyway, my points are gone. I will no longer use the Cabela’s Club card and I plan to pay off most of it tomorrow then put in for a different credit card and transfer a small balance over to the new card. I am done with Cabela’s...I mean Johnny Morris’ Bass Pro. RIP Cabela’s Have a fantastic Friday!
  16. @Widder, SASS #59054 Which one is that? The main or side match SG? I liked your main match one it never missed
  17. I so wish I could be there for your match.  Our dog Rooster had surgery on his ACL this week and will be boarded for two weeks while I travel and when I get back he needs much rehab/attention from me for a successful recovery.  I am going to shoot Bordertown next week and will be spreading Judge at several of his favorite spots there.  I have shotgun shells loaded to memorialize him at the range.


    I will have more shells made for you to use at your shoot. I will ship those to you around the first week of November.   Judge told me to take him and spread him at all of our favorite shooting spots and new ones that I mind find.  Love to you and family!

  18. These types are really starting to P*ss Me Off
  19. Wouldn't "cowboy poi" be grits? Just thinking about it is making me hungry.
  20. @Curly Ken, SASS 60011 I had the same issue with getting APP and also had to use Black MZ on occasion. They are both essentially the same for measurement. I'm loading .45 Colt and although with real BP you need to load so there is no air space and a little compression of the powder you don't have to do that with APP/Black MZ. I tried a few loads one loaded with compression, one loaded with less powder and some filler and one with just less powder. Took all 3 loads to the range and myself and another CAS shooter tried them and found that the one without the filler shot just fine, so now that's how I load them. I'm not sure if you want to hear how I came up with the amount of powder I use, if so just ask and I'll be happy to share. The .44-40 means .44 caliber bullet with 40 grains (by volume) of BP. Here is a good read by Curt Rich on loading BP subs for dummies he explains a lot. I'm sure there are other vendors that carry it but If you want APP give Scarlet Darlin (Bullets by Scarlet) a call or email, she doesn't list it on her website but does sell and ship it. Have fun, welcome to SASS, and enjoy the dark side.
  21. we need a wave maker in the pond so we can go surfing
  22. Prayers up for a fast recovery.
