    Actually, you really need to understand the structure of the GB auction you are looking at in order to get a good idea as to the value of a firearm.

    Yep; the reality often falls short of the dream. I'm fortunate to have a cottage across from the water, with room to store the boat in the off-season. As long as I hold it to 22', I should not have a problem single handing, and the maintenance is more doable. With Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, the Elizabeth Islands, and even Boston, Maine and RI/CT within striking distance, there are endless possibilities for cruising without the need for an extended offshore sail. I want to relax and have fun, not challenge myself or deny Mrs. LL the chance to pull into a marina now and then for a bit of sightseeing, shopping and restaurant fare. LL

    How can you shoot this?

    Do we agree that there are two valid POV's here?? One sez that the two instructions are independent of each other and the other sez they are not. If we can just agree to this than we can look at ways to avoid having a problem in the future. Phantom

    OR-you could just buy Hydrogen Peroxide and use that. HP is the active ingredient of Oxi Clean. OLG

    Watching A Bridge Too Far

    The camouflage paint on the upper surfaces was more for when they were flying than when parked on the ground. They wanted something that would be pattern disruptive over a range of terrain. Aircraft on the ground are subject to bombs, so the camouflage doesn't make much difference. Or, if attacked by strafing, the attackers will be close enough to see them no matter what.

    I ship and will continue to ship to California. You need better FFL's in your area. Phantom

    How can you shoot this?

    This is not the OPs event or stage instructions but we had basically the same scenario. From the Battle Born Ranger's 2nd Annual Roop County Days held in Nevada in early September: Stage 9: Gun order and shooting position is shooter's choice. Rifle and shotgun are staged appropriately. If with rifle, triple tap each target - any order. Then engage center target with tenth round. If with pistols, engage the pistol targets using the same instructions as the rifle targets.

    One of the options we considered before I retired (18 years ago) we a live aboard 44" powerboat. I would have had to find a garage to rent for my hot rod, tools and stuff. It was an option that sounded good until you really thought hard about it. Same situation with full time rving.

    Praise for BP shooter

    Did you clean the barrels BEFORE you shot the BP? Mixing smokeless and BP (or subs) creates a real crud mix residue that's a nightmare to clean up. If the barrels are clean and lubed with Balistol before shooting BP they are a snap to clean after. As stated earlier, spray with windex and push out crud with wadded up paper towels, patch wrapped bore brush or best of all, a Remmington squeege. Relube with Balistol.

    Praise for BP shooter

    I've flushed with hot water, pushed brush through and then pushed paper towels through, last goes a big dollop of Thompson's Bore Butter in each tube. Push that through with fresh paper towel. Then use that towel with Bore Butter to wipe down gun. But lately I've just simplified by pulling a damp bore snake through and continue as I've done before. PS. I think Edward is onto something with the lube. I have a lot of confidence in Bore Butter. I'm sure it contains wax in the mixture.

    A Request For The Classifieds

    Thanks for the support. Other forums I read require that the seller leave the post intact to help future sellers decide what something is worth. Yes, the asking price often isn't realistic, but if the price keeps dropping, and then it sells, we do get a good idea of the price range. It's just like when I ask for advice. When I get my answer, I could ask to have the entire thread deleted, but I figure if I'm asking the question, someone else in the future may want to know the answer as well.

    Make sure you start the match with well-lubricated barrels. I doesn't matter what you lube with. I've used Rem-oil, spray cooking oil and WD-40. With these lubricants plastic doesn't stick well to the barrels. Shooter a clean, unlubricated barrel and the plastic adheres too well. I now use the windex and paper towel method but once used hot water for cleaning. These methods both work. but windex is handier on the road where hot water may be unavailable I toss shotgun shells after using real black powder or the subs. I get plenty of once-fired hulls and don't need to risk bad crimps by reloading after using the smokey stuff.

    Maybe you should say what part of California it's going to. The locals may be able to suggest a friendly dealer.

    Praise for BP shooter

    I just run a bore brush back and forth about 4 or 5 times with my barrels dipped into a bucket of cold water (hot water causes flash rust here in my humid part of Virginia), then pull a boresnake soaked in Ballistol through it and I'm done. If you use plastic wads, it's a bit more work, but not enough to get your panties in a bunch.
