Any way you look at it, you're gonna get screwed. They'll offer you half the blue book and sell it for double. J*j

I got the same message a year or so again and called the store. I was told they would not ship air guns to Illinois without having a copy of my FOID card and driver's license on file and told me to email it to them...which I did not. I explained to them that Cabela's would ship BP guns right to my door step. Truth is, they just don't want to deal with the red tape.

Good looking little pocket, Dave! Looks like my Baby Dragoon...minus the loading lever.

I can't take credit for the idea, I saw it in a video or read about it elsewhere. 

For glue small amounts of Elmer's.  I'd been using glue sticks, but I tried the Elmer's today on a whim, after a while the glue sticks sometimes lose some adhesion, I think the Elmer's  won't have that issue.
In my galaxy, far far away, we haven't heard of Elmer's.
What kind of glue is that? What does it say on the label?

It's a low-strength white glue, Len

Capt,

Drill a hole through a scrap piece of wood, lay it on a flat surface.  I roll the tube on a dowel, add a little "cup" for the bottom, stick the whole thing into the drilled hole so that the "cup" contacts the flat surface underneath your wood block and twist the dowel a few times. 

 

What a great idea! Love the look of those carts. What sort of glue do you use to glue the paper to the conical?

Welcome! "Sponging" is allowed, but we're likeable fellers and we don't bite so why not loosen up the tie and join us at the campfire? In fact...hell; just take the damn thing off.  )lI

Richard, I use Flitz on my brass. Supposedly it has an anti-oxidant that works up to 6 months from application. I wipe my revolvers with RemOil after handling.
