    Thought So

    Man I'll bet that log has some interesting grain patterns. Properly stored, seasoned and cut it might make some really neat stuff. Again, maybe not but I might take the chance the way they have it secured someone else thinks so too.. The Great Salt Lake had a railroad trestle about 15 miles long when that wood was salvaged it was magnificent. In the 80 or so years it stood it had absorbed minerals and the high salt content had preserved it. Sold for more than I could afford at the time but I wish now that I would have tried harder to afford it.

    Three Wives

    Yes, and I married the sweetest Irish girl you ever met. We married on September 6th and I laid the law down to her on September 15th on our way home from our honeymoon. The Doctor said I should be released from the Hospital by Christmas, Winter Range for sure.

    Earthquake in Anchorage

    Alaska is very, very shaky state more quakes by far than any other state. They are thanks to the 1964 quake well prepared. All my kids and grandkids live near the epicenter one daughter right on top of it. The worse they got was the daughter on the epicenter lost most of her grandmothers (my mother) china irreplaceable and terrible but just a thing. No one dead few injured if that would have happened in California, well, lets don't even think of it. I wouldn't be surprised if tomorrows SASS match still happens.

    Clays pistol loads .38 sp

    When you get into the 3.0 zone with Clays, Clay Dot or Trail Boss a mag primer will help keep all your shots nearer the same velocities. Rather than BANG, BANG, bang, BANG.

    Pioneer Coil mainspring conversion

    To each their own, I have had several coil springs by different manufactures in several of my 73's. They were very nicely manufactured and worked but didn't seem to like going as fast as a flat spring. So basically it probably boils down to personal preference when getting your times down into the low .2's or below. I shoot an awful lot and have never had problems with a properly tuned flat spring. I start with a "Cowboys and Indians" spring steel spring then cut it down and polish all the tool marks off. Never have broken one though i have wore the spring out of a few. Your mileage may vary. 12

    Lever Action for self-defense

    Linn is perfectly correct, armed with anything is better than being unarmed and being armed with something you use regularly is better yet. I really like the 1911 and I'm very well armed with it inside 50 yds. A zone hits are normal with a few in the B. A shotgun is a great house gun powerful yet easy to handle, an ounce of shot more or less at 20 feet will discourage even the most dedicated evil doer. However, without a commitment to practice and shooting an organized sport is great practice your choice of weapons is mostly rhetoric and will have little impact on the results.

    Sight recommendations...? [Edited]

    Use both the MVA and the Smith on lever guns a very good choice. You can always switch sights according to your needs.

    Expressed regrets

    I don't often add comment to threads like this, however after about fifteen or so years of reading the "wire" I will state my opinion. Over the years I have seen too many personalities pushed, run, insulted or otherwise demeaned off the wire. Opinions are like *ss *oles everyone but a few have one and all but a very few are not very pretty. In response to the *ss *oles of his time a pretty good guy said "let him without sin cast the first stone". Perhaps we should practice that more.
