    Anyone have an opinion on this Rossi lever action deal?

    No, I paid $325 for mine over 15 years ago, so that's not too bad a mark-up. At $440, that seems a fair price, fairer than a lot of their other prices. And it looks brand new, so it's a value call. I paid $700 a few years ago for a new Marlin JM Cowboy, which is a lot more than I wanted to pay, but it's a good rifle, and I needed it, so it is what it is. It's sure cheaper than a '73, and it'll hit the target just as well. It will last a long time, too, so look at it like, $44 a year for 10 years isn't much at all. You'll spend more on ammo.

    Collector's Firearms is like a museum with price tags. High price tags, but they have ANYthing you might want. I love going in there, looking for what I want, and then buying it cheaper somewhere else. I love my early Rossi (pre-safety) in .38/.357, too. Got it at one of Texas's infamous gunshows many years ago. Welcome to SASS. I hope you can stay a while.

    I'll....... I'll...... I'll..... hate myself for not buying this, but a June wedding for my Air Force son & daughter-in-law has tied up any and all loose nickels. I'll just have to shoot my '87 Chin-chester. But, I've always loved the originals. Good luck with the sale, Sir.

    New Polish Capper PCC

    I learned to spell it with the "au" in technical writing in college, way back before spell-check. If you use water or liquid to move something, it's hydraulic. If a man has to move it, it's mandraulic. If a man can't stop moving it, he's a mandrolic. If he only moves it for 12 steps because it boring, he's a good candidate for Mandroholics Monotonous. Does anyone else have any examples or comments?

    New Polish Capper PCC

    I received mine a few weeks ago, and with the Polish eagle engraving, it's pretty! I haven't used it, other than to just try it, but it works so much better than the flimsy straight capper I had. Last time out, I spent 15 minutes trying to load the straight capper, and the caps kept flipping over after I would load another cap, making me remove both caps and mandraulically reinsert them. So, I'm quite pleased with the Polish capper. Plus, like a cowboy said on another Polish capper topic, the shipping envelope has neat stamps on it. Another thing: If you want to buy one, I suggest PayPal. I tried a credit card, but because the charge comes from Poland, it was rejected, and the card was frozen. Since it was my wife's card, that was not pleasant. I'm not a regular user of PayPal, but in this instance, it worked.

    All gone!!

    I sent my money for the cowboy shoulder holster last Thursday, and got the holster the following Thursday. That's fast turn-around. Dirtwater Doc treated me right, and I expect he does everyone that way. A good pard with a fair price and quick response. I would do business with him any day.

    Looking for Colt Single action frame any generation

    I can't help you with your search. I hope you find one. Being a detail-oriented sort of guy, I noticed that your SASS number is shown as 50502 and 50510. Is there a story behind this, or just a typo?

    Passing Of A Special Lady.

    Our Nation experienced a loss today. Barbara Bush was a very special lady, and TV and internet will tell all about her achievements. Here's my little story: Years ago, I was inspecting a roof on Terminal C at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston when I saw 2 black Suburbans come up to the jetway, and park at the bottom of the outside stairs. I knew somebody important was arriving. Mrs Bush stepped out of the plane, and started down the stairs. I wasn't 15 feet away, but on the roof. I wanted to say Hi, but I knew if she tripped going down the stairs, I would be in trouble. As soon as she reached the bottom step, I yelled "Mrs Bush". She look around, but not up. I repeated it, and she again looked around. I yelled "Up here", and she looked up, saw me, and gave me the biggest smile and a 2-handed over-the-head wave before entering the Suburban. Returning to the office, I told co-workers, and they asked me if I saw the red dots that were undoubtedly on my chest!

    For such a gruff looking cowboy, you have a great sense of humor! And an appreciation of pop music! Not what I would have expected.....
