    Hey Moderators!

    It’s not unbiased moderation. It’s moderation without personal accountability for decisions made.

    Hey Moderators!

    One more comment. I think this idea of anonymous moderators is stoopid. If you’re enforcing the rules as written then why do you need anonymity, unless you think SASS members can’t determine which posts and which members stray from the guidelines? Do our TOs wear masks when making their calls? If you believe in the call you’re making then own up to it. If not, then don’t make the call.

    Hey Moderators!

    Yep! Just because the OP has been answered doesn’t mean we might not want to chat about it. Isn’t that the purpose of a forum like this?

    Hey Moderators!

    Thanks for volunteering! Less is more! How about you stop locking threads that don’t violate forum rules just because YOU feel the discussion is over? What’s the justification for that?

    Ruger Bearcats

    I had a pair of Bearcats for my middle son. Although they weren't as bad as you describe they were stiff, you can't see the empty chamber, and they do foul pretty quickly. I also had trouble with a transfer bar hanging up on the bottom of the firing pin (I beveled the leading edge of the T bar, problem fixed). I bought him a pair of birdshead grip Uberti Lightnings in .38 special. Much smoother and although they're a bit bigger he handles them well.

    Uberti1873 Competition Rifle............HELP

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'work anywhere' Spitflier. I have an Uberti 1873 with a 5th gen C&I kit built by Marshall Harlan Wolff. It's been rock solid since I got it. Now would it work with hard primers, I don't know. Does it work 100% with Federals, yes. The only reliability issue I've heard of tends to be light hits on primers in really slick guns. Your best bet is to shoot rifles with different type kits and see which one you prefer. My wife's has a 4th gen C&I, and it's a great gun too. My preference would be C&I first, Cody second, and Pioneer never. YMMV
  11. Captain Bill Burt,

    We just mailed the entry forms for myself and High Cotton Kitty in today for the Immortals match. Is there a motel you would recommend? We stayed at one a couple of years ago that was across the street from a pretty good Mexican Restaurant but I can't recall the name.

    John Wayne guns

    Yeah, I'm the opposite. I don't look to good myself and it doesn't bother me if my guns don't either, but I can definitely appreciate fine old guns.

    Damn, choked on some Coca-Cola! Sorry to hear that Redwood. They're definitely purdy guns!
