Wife had to go into work today, so I'm busy around here. Doing laundry, filled seed feeders, niger feeders, sunflower seed feeders, suet feeders, hummingbird feeder. I forgot to buy another worm block. Now I have to change into old clothes so I can pull the pond pump and aerator and clean them and back-flush the filter. And sometime soon I have to start a batch of soup, and split firewood in case it snows tonight.

All respect to the guys that like them but Iím feelin contrary and donít care for a Bisley.  The grip to frame ratios are off and look disproportionate and unaesthetic.  They donít draw or balance right for me either.  I just donít like em.

And that's perfectly fine. It means you and me won't be competing for the Ruger Bisleys.

I need an 1849 pocket. I also need a Remington 1863 steel frame pocket.

I think I mentioned that above.

1873 SAA Colts / Bisley, Colt, Uberti, and Ruger

I got to handle an Original Colt Bisley Single Action Army today. Also, an Uberti copy of the Bisley model, and a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk, all side by side. The Uberti is almost identical to the Colt. The Ruger is larger, and the grips are different. I discovered that I cannot use the original Bisley grip shape. They are too small, and the grip angle is very uncomfortable for me. The Ruger Bisley grip, however, is the cat's pajamas. I understand that not everyone likes it, but I love it. It fits my hand perfectly, and has the extra length I need to keep my little finger from slipping off the bottom. I might have considered buying the actual Colt, anyway. It was a tad out of my price range.

It takes forever to get a new computer set up to the point where it is actually useful.

Hi Electric, beautiful photos. Where those photos taken from your house? If so, I'm jealous.


The bottom two were taken from my front yard, and the rest were less than a five minute drive from my house.

This adult Sharp-shin was hanging out in our yard this afternoon. It's one of a pair that nest in one of our trees. I wasn't sure until now that they were Sharp-shins, and not Cooper's. Looking at these pics, though, the head is not square enough, the grey cap extends down the nape of the neck (a Cooper's would have an obvious white separation), and it is much smaller than the Cooper's we have in this area.

He just aimed a diatribe at my doubting him by telling me how all the dealers know him and what he'll pay to get rare pristine guns in his collection.

Another gun forum gained a new member in December (Hey, that rhymes!). In eleven posts, he has claimed to have 1- an original Colt flattop Bisley in 38-40 with 90% finish, 2 - a 1965 production Colt AR15 that has never been fired, 3 - three - count 'em - three Baby Nambu pistols, all in mint condition with matching serials, matching original holsters and additional mags, and 4 - a Steyr 9mm air rifle with Nazi proof marks, also in mint condition.

And he makes it a principle to never post pics of what he owns because they might end up all over the internet.

Why do people try to say this kind of stuff, and how old do you think he is?
