    John Wayne guns

    I believe that to be the safest position and most politically correct one to take

    John Wayne guns

    Because of the grips of your fingers getting a better hold and the gun doesn’t slip when shooting either from recoil or sweat. There was supposed to be a group getting together signatures as an appeal but I probably stopped that as I and Allie Moe went toe to toe after I said that the local clubs would probably allow them without counting your score at the monthly match and you wouldn’t care because you were shooting JWs grips! Its like when I shoot his 92 Commemorative with the big loop and have never worried about being competitive! If I got better than last place it was only becuz I was the only one shooting in that category. She got the impression that I was being disrespectful telling everyone to ignore the rule and expect to shoot with the grips and have their scores count! I didn’t but no amount of replies would convince her! So you can search and you will find the ruling. People are much faster with short strokes and lighter springs and the amount of shooters that would go for these grips is very small. But the biggest problem was that first they were allowed and then after people got and started using them at $100 per pair, some were upset that they now were illegal per SASS.

    The grips were ruled illegal as they would provide a competitive edge to the user. I got in trouble suggesting it hat you could use them in competitions but not count your score! But you would enjoy JW’s grips on your pistols!

    cataract surgery lens options

    Had this done a little over 2 years ago. Had worse stigmatism in my right eye that they had seen in 30 yrs, oh and eye was shaped like a football! Been wearing coke bottle glasses since I was 7 and I had turned 60. Had the special lenses put in at $2 grand an eye over the cost covered by insurance for distance. I figured a could get reading glasses. 11 months later after seeing almost 20/20 on both eyes I go thru a deatached retina in the right eye, twice, within 2 mos of each other! Fortunately sight came back to almost the same. If after getting it done you start to see a “veil” or shadow closing over your sight, run don’t walk to the eye surgeon immediately otherwise you could lose sight in the eye permanently! got the long distance lenses and am happy!

    Shipping antique guns via usps

    I have had very frustrating experiences shipping USPS as they never track the package accurately. I would rather spend more and send UPS or FedEx as they would be tracking it better and on time. But that is my opinion!

    WTB Brass or Stainless Rossi '92 Sporter or Short Rifle in .45 Colt

    I didn’t think the Rossi’s were really brass, thought it was a plating on the steel receivers. Were they eally brass totally?

    WTB 97 winchester front end

    Irish Pat, if MM Wright doesn’t take you up on your assembly I am interested. Had mine cut down nicely to 20” but wouldn’t mind having the 30” as a back up.

    John Wayne big loop, when and who?

    Stagecoach’s Lever was different and to be honest I don’t remember his trademark loop in The Commancheros, l believe any Winchester 92 he shot during that movie all had the normal levers but I could be wrong!

    John Wayne big loop, when and who?

    Ok just so I am clear with you all and perhaps I already got the answer. Stagecoach had a D shape lever like Chuck Connors in The Rifleman and it appears to be the same that Robert Mitchum is using in El Dorado as I swear I can see the screw to work the trigger in the lever. Stagecoach was 1939, yes? The Shepherd of the Hills was 1941 and now John Wayne has his signature lever on the 92 he is carrying. Could that be the one he and Yakima came up with?

    John Wayne big loop, when and who?

    Nope but thanks to both of you. Stagecoach has a “D” ring, yes? What t want to know is where did the modified one that changed from the D loop style.

    John Wayne big loop, when and who?

    Ok for Stagecoach he had a “D” loop like Chuck Connors in the Rifleman and was lined to Robert Mitchum along with “Mark”. But in 1941, Shepherd of the Hills, he is using what would become his style big loop and the one that Winchester copies. So I am wondering who came up with us design for him and why? That’s what I get for watching John Wayne and Military movies on a went Florida weekend.

    Clint walker has passed on at 91 according to his daughter. I love watching Cheyenne that started the year I was borne, 1955. I think he was very underrated as one of our bigger western TV actors. Thanks Clint for being a good guy even if you didn't wear a white hat!
