  1. Past hour
  2. I really like your suggestions - thank you. I’ll keep all this in mind if I ever go ahead with this. WBM

  4. I just found out that my niece successfully completed her 36 hour spur ride at Fort Hood, Texas. Though she is a pilot in an MI battalion, her unit works closely with the cavalry units on base. One of the squadron commanders invited her to step up and join the ride. 36 hours and 34 miles later, she had earned her spurs. Proud as could be! And did I mention she deploys next month? Bar’s open. My tab’s buying.
  5. I stopped shopping there about a year ago. The customer service I received was pathetic at both stores. There was a time once when we’d stuff a bunch of folks in a RV, drive to Sidney and shop like the world was coming to a end in 48 hours. That was Cabelas in its prime, long gone they are.
  6. It never dawned on me until after a few times of loading and unloading my car in front of the apartment where I live. Although you can’t see what’s inside the locked boxes anyone looking out their windows or walking by my car can see I’m loading something important. I also think about this if I’m loading musical instruments in my car. Anyway, you’ve got a point about keeping a low profile by not drawing attention to myself. Maybe not dress in full costume till I get there. WBM
  7. Maybe some of us have come back around a time or two. . .
  8. In considering elastic, and in some cases canvas, material for loops I find shotgun shells a tad slower to load onto belt than a good quality leather looped belt. I am especially referring to pairs. In pairing, one might suggest your craftsman to be able to mold a slight "crease" in center of pairs to give small gap between two shells....at least in my grabbing/loading technique that is a plus. This is a minor detail but I find in comparing my grab from canvas loops versus leather, I am more comfortable with the tiny part between shells.
  9. It’s gone, and the river has washed away any evidence.
  10. Better have lots of change, I only drink the good stuff. Not that rot gut exliar.
  11. Ha!! I got it. A Trix question. So .... just how many of us do you think were around in the 1930s?? That can still play CAS??
  12. OP... I commend you. That is a Stupid Dad joke of the highest order. Kudos
  13. When you get a chance let me know what you have and such, Thanks, Blackfoot
  14. I have no interest in ARs, nor do I have a dog in the fight. With that in mind, I would not attempt to own an AR in California. The law here is SO capricious, it changes as the wind blows. That which was legal and grand fathered yesterday, is now illegal and banned today. I figure CA will ban my SA revolvers last of all.
  15. Put a fired case in the chamber before flushing or swabbing the barrel and the action will see little crud introduced to it. Helps keep her clean when cleaning.
  16. I live in CT and you're almost certainly right to decide to withdraw your name for consideration, even aside from the gun laws this state sucks: cost of living is high, taxes are high, houses (especially in the Stamford area) are expensive, it's crowded and the winter is bad. As for the gun laws, in theory a carry permit is "Shall Issue" however some towns stall, play games and force the applicant to appeal to a board of firearms permit examiners which currently has appeals scheduled into 2021. We have an assault weapons ban, which includes most "military looking" semi-automatic rifles and there is a magazine ban on any detachable magazine or detachable feeding device that holds more then 10 rounds. This law was poorly written that it INCLUDES machine gun links, cloth machine gun belts and even original Gatling gun magazines. A ammo permit is required to buy ammo (and out of state internet dealers will require it) A long gun permit is required to buy rifles and shotguns and allows the purchase of ammo A carry permit is required to buy a handgun and also allows the purchase of long guns and ammo The carry permit does allow a person to carry a gun concealed most places (excluding state parks, airports, prisons, court and a few other places) and does allow open carry, although few CT gun owners chose open carry.
  17. I use a Cash Guarantee Card instead of a credit card, so I just take that elsewhere. I shop very carefully and watch pricing. Bass Pro here was the only one carrying AA shotshells for a decent price. They were cheaper than any of the online vendors, and no shipping. I had to wait a couple weeks, but that was the tradeoff for the low price. When the new CA gun laws become effective on 1/1/2020, I will be spending more time in BP and Sportsman's Warehouse for all the little stuff I would normally get from Grafs or Midway. Gotta do those background checks on those dangerous springs and pins.
  18. I've swapped out hammers a few times on piettas. Most of the time it it doesnt require much if any work to correct the timing for plinking. however you may see a difference in the timing once you try running at full speed. It is not difficult to do once you understand how it all works. If you're not comfortable doing it yourself then by all means send it out. If you do decide to do it yourself make sure you have additional spare parts on hand. On occasions that i've trimmed a little too much off from a hand I never thrown them out. Never know when i'll find a pistol that needs that length of hand. T.F. Jack
  19. So I read it and I do not see much that makes it that much different than an AR style "pistol". I do not think CA or others are going to accept that if it is not classified as a rifle by the ATF then they are going to call it a pistol and it still has banned features that are listed in the banned assault handgun category. For heavens sake a broomhandle mauser is classified as a an assault pistol since it has a ammunition feeding device other than in the handle. As stated above I am not sure I want to arguing all that in those court systems and if it came down to it, will Franklin put up the money and attornies to help you out? Alright, I do not see what is the problem with so called featureless long guns. There is little I can not do with a Mini 30, Mini 14 or my Winchester 1907.
  20. Pizza from Nancy's in Covington! Big, thick, STUFFED pizza! Oh yeah... ANY ice cream!
  21. Pip was slang for a difficult person to deal with. Pipies might be a plural of that I suppose
  22. Hot water to clean and liberal amounts of Balistol. Wipe the surface and good to go. That's it. Works great on my Rugers, 1860 Uberti, 1873 Uberti, 1894 Marlin, and 1892 Rossi (SS) GG ~
