Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

That's very close to the scenario that made me invest in a 6.8spc AR... Went out to the farm with my .45-70 to help my dad out and shoot a pig or two... Seeing several dozen come across the fence line when you've only 4+1 in the rifle and 6 .44 Mag in a revolver isn't a great feeling. It's much bett...

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

I've got two hanging around these days. First is my Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum (which hangs out with my S&W 629). Probably my favorite gun to date. Depending on load (and reloading makes .44 affordable), it can go from very mild range plinking gun to a decent close in deer/hog rifle. I'm happy with i...

Re: Beto: Mandatory Gun Buybacks if Elected President

I just did some really quick and dirty research and math. Between 2000-2914 5.7 million ARs were sold. At $500 each each that would be 3 trillion dollars. Well, he did not say how much he would pay did he. I'd imagine that since they would all eventually be ground up and no 'legal' market to sell t...

Re: Excess guns

Well, the first one that comes to my mind is my Marlin 1895G Guide Gun in .45-70 Gov’t. I’ve wanted one for years, and the one I own now is a VERY nice pre-Remington JM stamped example, but I’ve found that I just don't enjoy shooting it. I never used to be recoil sensitive until I bought this rifle...

Re: Colt Delta Elite 10mm

I like 10mm in general and have a Glock29 in my rotation. When I picked up a Colt for my 40th several years back, I tried hard to find a Delta Elite but ended up with a Rail Gun. It's still on my wish list.

Re: The city of Southmayd.

Do we have links to those court cases? I'd like to send them to a friendly neighborhood sheriff in my home town where the county buildings are posted.

Re: Rainy day. Decided I had too much money. Had a holster made for my large model 28

Could very well be. It's a 629-1 circa 1981/1982. I lucked into it at the DFW Cabelas several years back. It's done very well for me after I spent a few hours cleaning all the lead from the barrel. I really need to get a better holster for it for the rare times I want to carry it. It's been nice to ...

Re: Rainy day. Decided I had too much money. Had a holster made for my large model 28

Ahh, I did the reverse with my 629. It came with the old style pachmayr rubber grips, but they've aged from rubber into rock and tended to pinch along the seam when firing. I replaced them with a set of Miculek's competition grips which have been quite nice.

Re: Shotgun Smith Recommendations

Dropped off the old girl this morning. Pricey :) could have picked up a new Browning on just the deposit. We’ll see how it turns out later this year. Clean & Inspect to start. Then bring the steel back to a satin polish & re-blue (slow rust). New stock (the one on it is incorrect and damaged). Strip...

Shotgun Smith Recommendations

Hi folks, I brought home the family shotgun recently. It’s just an old Stevens pump so worth more sentimentally than financially. That said, it’s about 90 years old and spent most of those years out on the farm and so could use a good bit of TLC on the finish and furniture. Do y’all have any recomme...
