  1. 94 Winchester in 38-55

    Fuss? What fuss? And let us not forget, the 38-55 was the benchrest record holder until the 1920s. You would have a hard time getting a 45-70 to shoot as accurately as a 38-55......just say’n
  2. 94 Winchester in 38-55

    I have a whole bunch of 38-55 Rifles....My Japanese Winchester model 94 is easily one of the most accurate. I use the short brass with a LEE 250g cast bullet of 1-20 lead. I'd tell you the load of Unique powder but that's not allowed here. Be assured, it is very little powder with a 3/4" X 3/4" piece of single ply toilet paper to keep the powder against the primer. Has won me a number of side matches over the last three years!
  3. How often do you change your Medium?

    My thoughts exactly! I was going to say..."The last time she told me I was going to inherit money.........and I didn't!" BTW....A "used" dryer sheet or two will really clean up the corn cob media. Then a few tablespoons of Brasso ..........
  4. Getting rid of unwelcome guests just got harder.

    Here's the deal to keep mice away..... Using baited traps just invites them in. They can't resist the smell of peanut butter (neither can I!) Only useful if they are already in. Block all holes with steel wool. They hate it when it gets between their teeth. If they are not already in, use essence of peppermint to keep them out. If they are already in, EOP will only move them to another area. In small areas it works great. Borrow a ferret and let it roam around your house rubbing its scent glands everywhere. Most effective way to deter mice! Get a cat that is a proven mouser Get a 410 shotgun and have some shooting practice with rock salt...great fun!

    MUST RESIST...MUST RESIST....Too many projects on the bench now! But I was in Louisville for Thanksgiving. Had I seen it, it would be mine! Like the idea of 327 Federal cases.........Bet this would work just fine.
  6. Clarification of rule-need help

    Thanks Nanny.....I’ve witnessed this penalty applied erroneously at least two times at big matches. One match it was the difference between a shooter getting a plaque and not. I mentioned it to the shooter and he inquired and the penalty was reversed.
  7. Clarification of rule-need help

    Love this post. Learning a lot. what is the call with a holstered revolver with the hammer down on a round that the primer was hit but round didn’t fire? and also, what is the call with a round that didn’t fire but was not under the hammer. both being discovered at unloading bench .
  8. Here is a list of Mass compliant Vaqueros;

    You are correct... the firearm must be made of metal having a specific nature to stop cheap Saturday Night Specials and it must have some type of trigger lock, either internal or external and must sustain a drop on the hammer from a distance of 6 feet onto a concrete surface and not discharge and I believe 6 specimens must under go this test. I’ve been told testing and certification can cost $10,000 per firearm.

    And a by product of this whole mess is any SAA revolvers that are legally PRE-98 in the state are extremely expensive. I've seen open-top Uberti revolvers that are $300 over the state line in NH go for $500 here in MA because they are unobtainium. And don't even think about buying an Colt SAA revolvers....................I'd give a kidney for a pair in 38-40!
  10. Here is a list of Mass compliant Vaqueros;

    If Ruger changes the grips or barrel length or finish and gives it a new model number, the gun has to go through certification. It is all about model number and not configuration. For Instance: Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 0521) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 0523) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 0575) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 0576) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 0577) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 0579) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 5106) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 5107) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 5108) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 5109) .357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 5130) 357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 5133) 357 Mag. Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Vaquero (Model # 10514) .357 Mag.

    George, As the folks from California and other liberal states start moving to Arizona, you will find yourself in a similar situation. Just look at Colorado and what has happened to that state over the last few years. Maine, Georgia, Wyoming, and many more are receiving an influx of liberals into the bigger cities and making it very difficult for conservatives. If I could move, you can bet your bottom dollar I would. But grandkids keeps my wife firmly planted in this Godforsaken state. I didn't vote any of these nitwits in. Not a one....But my vote hasn't counted for over 50 years in this state. Actually in the Heller decision, the supreme court ruled that states could apply "reasonable restrictions" on firearm ownership. Now we need to spend another ten years and millions of dollars defining what "reasonable" means...............
  12. Here is a list of Mass compliant Vaqueros;

    A single shot Thompson Contender or Encore can not be sold in MA because they are not "certified" The only way we can purchase any firearms that are not on the list is if they were in the state before 1998 and the seller has proof, or if someone moves into the state and brings his uncertified guns with him, and then sells them. Strange....It is not illegal to own or buy these noncertified guns from a private party......In fact, if you did buy one from an FFL dealer, you did no wrong......The dealer broke the law, not you. When Bass Pro Shops opened here a number of years ago, they were ignorant of the law and were selling Springfields, Glocks, and all kinds of other noncertified firearms. Folks ran up there when it was posted on the internet and bought all kinds of "bad" guns. The AG got wind of it and asked BPS to get them all back. Near no one complied as they had not broken any law by buying them. Not sure what the outcome was to BPS. Never heard if they paid a fine or what the resolution was.

    A Minor Safety Violation can be corrected?

    or a live round on the carrier of an open action, a Minor Safety Violation (MSV) will be assessed. (There is no opportunity to correct this condition before firing the next firearm, as the penalty takes effect upon leaving the shooter’s hands).
