Re: Wrong ammo in a Winchester

Yeah I’d say that most of us with 44-40 Winchester’s and their revolver is a 45LC have either done this, or will do this at some point in their lives.

Pro Tip: disassembling and reassembling a Winchester in the field is zero about as much fun as an adult circumcision without sedative

I’ve always wanted to get to this one. Not so far away, see some old friends, meet a bunch of new ones. Like others, time’s catching up with me, the body went to seed 10 years ago with the back surgery, and it’s time to do it again. 280 lbs of whale grease puffing around the range! :D But I think it...

I used to have his contact info, but that was years ago. Bill, I’ll call you or get ahold of James. I’m getting old and can’t remember, but didn’t we all discuss where he was working? I’ll have some time tomorrow so I can slide down there and snag him at work.

Re: NRA Scandal

Honestly, I’m not the slightest bit surprised. Anywhere there are 10s of millions of dollars flowing freely for decades, you’re bound to find corruption, if not corruption on a grand scale.

Re: Saturday lunch meet up in Denton, Texas

The good thing about Plano is that it’s centrally located in North Texas. Physically, Plano is huge, really spread out. So within a 30-45 minute drive, you’ll find several smaller towns where you can pick up a place reasonably cheap. That’s what we did. My shop’s in Lewisville, Joy worked in Dallas,...

Re: Nice and peaceful around here now.

Well, first off let me say that I consider the FAL to be the finest Battle Rifle ever made. Having said that, I think that I'd rather have an AKM if the SHTF.. Also, you FAL filers are going to miss us AKfilers once we're gone.. You all are always welcome over there if you ever get to miss entertai...

I fondled one once. Found it sitting in a bucket of junk at a gun show. The guy wanted 50 bucks for it, I hummed and hawed then walked away. Stewed over it for 10 minutes, came back and it was gone.
