  1. Gun Collection

    I have yet to see this collection. I have been to the building on two separate trips and both times it was closed.
  2. Gun Collection

    It is an amazing collection. After two days I had not seen everything in all of the museums.

  4. Just a thought....

    I know a few things about most dog food that you probably don’t want to know, especially if you eat it. The first is this:I paid for my car expenses in high school by working late nights at an egg ranch. The eggs that had blood or embryos in them were tossed into a barrel with a weird green dye. The barrels were sent to dog food companies. Second: rendering plants. Have you ever wondered where all the dead old farm animals (and other dead animals)go? Rendering plants is the answer. Every gross thing you can imagine along with the worst thing you have ever smelled gets ground up into the low dollar pet foods you are feeding your best friends. Truely disgusting. I watched and unfortunately smelled the regular deliveries arrive at a plant near where I worked in the late 70’s.

  6. Wyoming Knife

    Joachim, I might as well add this to the collection of other fine cutlery you have sold me over the years. Shoot me a PM with deposit instructions for the gold dust. Your pal, Ethan
  7. Howdy Mr. Brass, I have a little experience with the Lil’ Buckaroo category. Regardless of caliber or gauge, the firearm needs to fit the shooter (regardless of age). Not all Buckaroos can wrap their hands around a Colt SAA or Ruger Vaquero and maintain proper control of the firearm while cocking and firing or transitioning between firearms. The Ruger Bearcat and a few other small frame single actions work for shooters with small hands. Also, not all youngsters can manage grabbing two 12 gauge shot shells from their belt and stuff them into a double due to the size of their hands. They can manage to do so with .410s or 20 gauge shells which can be down loaded to manageable levels just like the low recoil 12 gauge shells mentioned above. If you are going to have them single load a pump gun, low recoil 12 gauge will be fine if they can handle the weight of the 97 and it has been cut down to fit them. I live in the IE and am willing to let your boys try the fit of some Buckaroo guns from days gone by. I have a 410 Stoeger, Ruger Bearcat and various pump and lever .22 caliber rifles. For grins and giggles I can show you a couple of lever .410 shotguns as well. None of my guns are for sale, I just want you to be able to compare the sizes of the smaller guns against my full size guns before you spend your money. Shoot me a PM if you want, and we can work out the details. My wife has small hands and she chose to shoot a 20 gauge shotgun because could manage thos shells in a double. She never liked the pump guns. Welcome to a great family and a great family sport!

    Hey pards, OG is looking for info on an 1893 not an 1897. I have no idea if they have the same thread pitch.
  9. Guns you wish you had bought.

    True story for me too!
  10. spotting scope?

    The wife and I were in Yellowstone in 2015. Some folks we met had a Ziess spotting and were watching a moose at more than a mile away. I was offered the opportunity to take a peek and the optics were very impressive. Very pricey equipment, but when OLG wins the lottery I will let him buy me one!
  11. Please pray for the members of my household

    Dear Lord please help Triple D’s family see the error of their heathen ways. Next year please guide them to the accordion section of the music store to purchase the correct gift. Amen
  12. Merry Christmas Dog Lovers!

    I like most dogs better than I like most people. Bill, thanks for helping out Karl.
  13. WTB Benchrest Spotting Scope Stand

    Thanks Lumpy, now I want one too! Marlin, this is about the lowest cost table top type I know of: https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/112392/bushnell-ultra-compact-tripod-window-mount-black?utm_medium=shopping&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=Optics+-+Spotting+Scopes&utm_content=112392&cm_mmc=pf_ci_google-_-Optics+-+Spotting+Scopes-_-Bushnell-_-112392&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIor7Hvvmb2AIVia_sCh2GxwydEAQYASABEgKKFvD_BwE I have the much older and not as sturdy model I bought over 30 years ago. It is fine for occasional use.
