    Here is my from box to match review on the Winchester 1873 Short Rifle in .357 mag. Quick info, I ran it with no lever wrap. The stock sight are a semi buckhorn and a very small Marbles style bead, I struggled with seeing them well. But beyond that I was extremely pleased. Ran like a top and I didn’t so much as even touch a screw on it. I was only able to get 4 stages in because I SDQ’d on the last stage by coming to the line with my hammer back, lack of focus on my part and also a first for me in 17 years of CAS. I still had a ball doing it!! Thank you to We The People Munitions for providing the ammo for this review. Hope it’s informational and entertaining.

    ... and, dang, it turned into an all-day job before it was over. Measuring wrist, measuring forearm, calculating the curves so the ends would be square when buttoned up around my arm, and on and on and on. I saved a lot of time by using some simple tooling instead of carving, and more time by staining them all the same color, instead of two tone. All in all, I'm happy with the way they turned out, but it's easy to understand how these things, even simple ones like this, often have an eighty or hundred dollar price tag or more.

    The editorial in the January 2019 Cowboy Chronicle by Pataha, SASS #5191 Is one of the best things that I've read in the Chronicle in many years. I've been beating the drum for such action a very long time. It is indeed a FACT that the game HAS been directed by the Shooting elite. MANY of the rules that we have today were put into place in a failed attempt to stop the game from gong where it has gone. We have come to a point where we put more emphasis on who can move their hand the fastest than we do on anything else in the game. We can NOT go back to the beginning, and I would not even want to try, it simply would not work, but we can learn from the past and inject the best parts of the past into today's game. GAME.... that is what this is suppose to be, A GAME. For years it was the most Wonderful and Fun Game that I have ever been a part of. When some Hotdog can shoot a stage in 12 sec, there isn't much game playing going on. It is going to take an amalgamation of the past with the present if we are to have a bright future. Snakebite

    Widder… Yes.. the closer and larger targets (within reason) are a GOOD THING, but the game can still be played. Somewhere along the line we did away with everything that might involve any chance what-so-ever.... Like turning over a card... if Red, start here, if Black start here. Flipping a pancake on the clock... throwing the tomahawk, retriving the keys for a jail break... yata yata. It was fun... lots of things can be done... one problem is that TIME became such a factor that the stages were cut down in complexity in order to get so many shooters through the course of fire in a given amount of time.. WELL, DUH.... maybe instead of shooting 12 hurry-up stages, we could go back to shooting 10 fun stages instead. For sure we don't want targets that require a Bench Rest to hit... that takes the ACTION out of the game. We have the opportunity to remake this game. Starting at our local clubs is of course the easiest, but it needs to happen at the BIG matches too. Fast shooting will ALWAYS be part of this game, and the top shooters of today's game will STILL be the top shooters. I'm NOT wanting to blow them away, only wanting a better place for the VAST MAJORITY of shooters to PLAY THE GAME.

    The Psychiatrist and the Proctologist Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided that, in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space and personnel. Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist and Dr. Jones was the proctologist; they put up a sign reading: "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors". The town council was livid and insisted they change it. So, the docs changed it to read: "Schizoids and Hemorrhoids " This was also not acceptable, so they again changed the sign."Catatonics and High Colonics"......No go. Next, they tried "Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives"....thumbs down again. Then came "Minds and Behinds"....still no good. Another attempt resulted in "Lost Souls and Butt Holes".......unacceptable again! So they tried "Analysis and Anal Cysts".....not a chance. "Nuts and Butts"....no way. "Freaks and Cheeks".....still no good. "Loons and Moons".....forget it. Almost at their wit's end, the docs finally came up with: "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones -- Odds and Ends" Everyone loved it.

    For the last few years, I've tried to include a quick story explaining the reason that the gunfight started. Two cowboys found an injured skunk on the trail and decided to take it to the vet. Sam told Bob, “Just put the skunk under your jacket to keep it warm.” Bob asked, “What about the smell?” Sam told him the skunk would just have to get used to it. That’s what started the gunfight. Indicate ready by saying, "He'll get used to it." At the buzzer...

    After a very hard fought small town basketball tournament lastnight.: Our team(Blue/white/gray) has a prayer at mid court after every game. Well last night the opponents asked to join and they all recited the Lord's prayer. Does the heart good to see that.

    Ah yes, way back when folks actually cowboyed up and accepted when they did something to earn a penalty. Now it takes an act of congress and a law degree to do so.

    I completely disagree. The LGS and the internet sales model can coexist and thrive. I only compete with the internet, when and if I happen to have the exact same product for sale on my shelf. If I do not; I was not going to earn the sale anyway. The big boxes/ internet retailers can purchase and sell new firearms at less than my wholesale cost (it's called volume purchasing); so any LGS attempting to sell Ruger 10-22's versus Wal-Mart is foolish. But what I can sell are used firearms with a greater markup/ less customer expectation of finding exactly the same online for comparison shopping. And most importantly; I can WELCOME the internet shopper in my shop by handling their FFL transfer in a reasonable and friendly manner. Too many LGS act like the internet shopper is an insult or traitor and do everything to make a FFL transfer over priced and inconvenient. My opinion is the FFL transfer/ internet customer is a 100% profit transaction that brings traffic into my shop. Keep paying me $20 transfer fees with no requirement to order, finance and stock inventory? I'll happily fill out 4473 forms all day long and provide an internet kiosk so you can search the net right there in the store.

    Once when Hubby wasn't home, a friend asked to borrow a tool. I loaned it to him. He got paint all over it and didn't clean it up. Hubby had to go get it back. Once at an annual match, they had an unannounced Josie Wales stage. I loaned three pistols to a friend. Hubby (gunboy/gunsmith) was irritated that I did that, as the person just threw my pistols down after use. Now I know why he asked me (softy, really) not Hubby to borrow them. We still like those people. However, there are some people you never loan stuff to. I WILL NEVER LOAN HUBBY'S STUFF OR STUFF HUBBY TAKES CARE OF TO ANYONE EVER AGAIN.

    So you are saying my plan to construct an RV made entirely of my plaques would be in poor taste?
