    Shipping antique guns via usps

    I have purchased two antique Winchester rifles within the last two years. A 38WCF 1873 made in 1890 and a 32WCF 1892 made in 1897. Both came directly to me by USPS, one from an FFL dealer, one from a private individual here on the wire.

    Stoooopid people paid my house off and put two kids through college in just 32 short years.

    Who’s Goin To EOT?????

    In Gallup now, wife is filling the RV up with silver and turquoise. She must have figured out how much I spent on guns this year, oh well.

    Shootout at Pawnee Station, July 6th - 8th, 2018, Nunn, CO

    Thanks Grizz & Calico Mary, I'll probably just leave our last stop in Colorado Springs with a full tank. Looking forward to meeting everybody there. Red River Wrangler and Sweet Lil talked me into it at Winter Range.

    Shootout at Pawnee Station, July 6th - 8th, 2018, Nunn, CO

    Grizz, Is there a place to fill the RV with water once we get there or should we arrive with the tank full? Thanks

    Rifle Grip

    Los Vaqueros and Old Pueblo Shootists both shoot at Tombstone Livery, the same place that you went to Bordertown. That's two matches a month within about an hour's drive. Get out and get some help. I guarantee it's there if you show up with whatever equipment you already have. https://www.losvaqueros.org/ http://www.oldpuebloshootists.com/

    Gunfighter grips for NM Ruger Vaquero .45

    I bought some Altamont grips for a Vaquero that I carry but don't shoot SASS with. I vas very, very impressed with their price, fit and overall quality. Super fast delivery too!

    SASS HQ - Why is the Wire so SLOW?

    Maybe it's all the new people that we're always trying to attract so SASS don't die from old age. P.S. Think of this the next time you complain that time passes too quickly.

    Reclaimed Shot

    I will use it for 12 and 20 gauge cowboy loads when I can find it. But I won't chance a piece of steel or a small rock going down the barrel of one of my more valuable skeet/trap guns.

    SAA: Why not carry 6 with the firing pin between case rims?

    I'll have to admit that when I carry one of my Vaqueros while on my ATV that it feels very strange to load all six!

    Winter Range - Vehicle Storage

    Jackaroo, I'm in Phoenix, but I have no inside storage to offer. And it is imperative that you do store that inside. Our packrats will do extensive damage to anything left outside that long, just ask my motorhome! If there's anything else that I can do to help don't hesitate to ask.......

    Henry .357 vs .38 Special

    Pat, the one I bought back in 2011 was very length sensitive. It took a while to get right, with longer being better. Too short and the bullet would jam against the top of the frame. Sorry I don't have my reloading notes any longer as I sold it within a year and bought a tuned 92.

    How to stiffen holster

    You can get gum tragacanth at most leather suppliers like Tandy. It is a leather hardener.

    Do you know what day you were hired?

    Hired 7-1-1979, retired 11-1-2010. The good residents of the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District put a roof over my head, food on the table for 31+ years, and two kids through college. Every minute was a privilege.
