    A little shaken up today

    That's the kind of guy to do business with! Glad you had no injuries, and a 'harmonious outcome'.... an exciting Saturday for sure.

    Can a fuse jump?

    The standard green "cannon fuse" I sell in my store is waterproof and burns at 1 foot/30 seconds. If it were touching itself in a coil it would certainly 'short-circuit'....

    WTC, Are These Boots Legal?

    Hi Allie Mo, this is Goode chiming in with my $.02. I had 2 neuromas removed from each foot back in 2014 which left me with "stubs" at the ends of the nerves as they healed. My former podiatrist who performed the surgery told me it was permanent nerve damage, but when I saw "Bad's" podiatrist today he gave me cortisone injections in each foot. I am happy to say that they feel better already, we shall see how long the improvement lasts. I purchased a pair of Ariats which had a toe box tall enough to accommodate my orthotics not long before the ill-fated Nevada State Championship. If those had not worked, I would have been pleading for medical accommodation on some other type of boot that might have worked. I firmly believe that reasonable footwear accommodation is not asking too much.

    Marlin 1895 Limited-.45-70 extractor removal

    Seeking the wisdom of the Wire--- In order to install a one-piece firing pin, the extractor must be removed from the bolt to allow access to a roll pin. Extractor is heavy spring steel and resists amateur efforts to remove. Is there a special tool, or is it all technique/experience? I managed to stop my efforts before breaking anything, but the extractor is still on the bolt......

    OT, Low recoil non-cowboy shotgun?

    I was fortunate to have gotten a Browning BSS from Goatneck Clem which has the Bumpbuster installed. My wife has shoulder/upper back problems and it has been really good for her. For your applications, a gas-operated Benelli (sp) would do well. Don't recall the model, but I tried one a friend had at a "tacticool" match and it was amazingly soft when shooting some potent loads. Good luck with your surgery.

    Derringer or/and picket pistol side match

    Long ago (in aught Two, I believe it was), I attended my first large, away from home match. The side matches were run as a fund generator for the host clubs. Shooters purchased "wooden nickels" at 2/$, and each side match had a coffee can where you deposited your appropriate number of chits. Unlimited participation. Everyone seemed to like it. It was all new to me, having just started in CAS, so I had no frame of reference.

    Marlin .32 H&R converted to .327 Federal?

    Thanks for the knowledgeable and reasoned replies. The attraction to the mod was to have the potential for versatility BEYOND CAS use. I would use the .32's for competition and the .327 for other uses. Was unaware of the .22 origins of the receiver; thanks, Mike, for the education there. That explains the loading mechanism configuration. If I had a .32-20 I wouldn't be interested in making it into a .327..... I'd just be shopping for a matching revolver.... Thanks for the useful comments.

    Marlin .32 H&R converted to .327 Federal?

    Not wanting to horn in on the Henry thread, but I saw mentioned (thanks, Ace) that Henry had a .327 Fed chambering. If a model 94 in ,32 H&R was rechambered, would it still shot the .32 H&R's? Widder, have you played with this option? Seems the action should be strong enough. Chamber pressures are listed from Wikkipedia as .32 H&R as 21,000 and .327 Fed as 45,000 cup.
