Transfer paperwork, why?

Hawg,  in Colorado all firearm sales require background checks,  even private party sales.   This includes gunshow sales too.   The so called gunshow loophole the gun control advocates talk about doesn't really exist,  not here anyway.

Awsome revolver. My question come from having giant hands ...  do you feel more room for your second finger knuckle. My 58's snip my knuckle regularly and always wondered if the 75 is more roomy for the fingers.


Yes Ted,  there is more room on the 1875.  About 3/8 in or so.  Plenty to keep it from rapping your knuckle unless you have really big hands.

Long weekend. Celebrated my wife's birthday (and mine, I suppose). They're a week apart. A dozen guests camping at the house in tents. They cowered from the javelina Saturday night. My wife got me the entire Bloom County cartoon series in a boxed two-volume set, signed to me from Berke Breathed, with a hand drawing of Opus on the cover. I got her a docking station/speakers for her Sirius/XM player.

Got the new door gasket installed on the wood stove, and tested the wood stove. Needed to test it due to my wife misjudging how many mesquite logs would make a nice small fire in the portable fire pit. This resulted in my wife and a family friend galloping into the house with a tin washtub of burning logs to throw into the wood stove.

The brisket came out very nice, as did the green chili cheese grits. I was not as happy with the ginger-lime cole slaw. Will probably not make that one again.

Now I have to go in for night shift tonight, and the following three night. Then I have two-weeks vacation, and back to day shifts for another year.

Took a road trip today, and let the wife drive. Here she is driving with one hand and eating popcorn with the other.

I received the notice about credit cards etc. months ago.   Cabelas has been in transition since June.   Nothing much has changed yet but that  doesn't mean it won't happen.   I don't patronize either one very much.

I worked for a women's clothing chain and we bought a men's clothing chain with a completely different demographic customer and we combined them. It is where the savings is

The stores have totally different footprints and serve different segments of the outdoor market, I'd expect them to run the brands separately, but who knows.

They don't travel upward. The actually start to drop as soon as they leave the muzzle.

Exactly all projectiles drop over distance. Black powder revolvers don't shoot high just drop fast. A modern gun shoots "flatter", or drops less, so it isn't as noticeable at different distances. It is a function of velocity among other factors
