If I had a time machine Iíd go back and ďgetĒ that little murderiní weasal  Quantrill  and his whole psycho crew.  No honor whatever with that crowd.  The type of men it would have been a pleasure to eradicate.


Even Grant said that Forrest was the greatest talent to emerge during the Civil War. Greatly underutilized  by the Confederacy (he wasnít a ďgentlemanĒ, you see).  At Sandhurst they taught his methods clear into the 20th Century.  The man was a genius and a stand-up fellow.

I use about 40% paper carts and about 60% poured powder.  About fifty paper carts can get fabed here in an hour so it's not too hard to stay ahead of the curve. 

Home rolled carts (homies) are awful-nice when the weather is wet and windy Ö or anytime.

For the past decade or so Iíve been using a little 1.5Ē piece of sawed off toothbrush handle and a small resin hammer.  Before that I was a wood clothes pen guy.

If LaPierre and the directors of NRA canít set an example then they should be made to be an example.  Sorros money has been hard at work funding groid female neomarxists into DA positions all over the country.  Their target is NRA financial mismanagement.  NRA has made itself a slow easy mark for that and should clean  house immediately.  It may be too late.  Thanks Wayne.

Hey kid, your grandparents belong to NRA.  Why donít you?

LaPierre has himself a good gig and wants to keep it.  He should have been thanked and dismissed long ago, The guyís a fraud.

NRA lost me when they put Olie North on the board.  Remember Iran-Contra?  Heís gone now but what a stupid move that was. 

GOA seems a valid alternative.

To my jaundiced eye the M1861 is the most esthetic handgun ever made ... but a Sixty is the better shooter.

Went to the range.  Fired five caps.  You're kidding, right?

Maybe check the barrel cylinder alignment? 

Chamber/barrel misalignment seems a very likely reason for the problem.  Is there a 'crescent' at the cylinder end of the bore? Does a .44 jag clear the gap or does it snag on the cylinder face?

The Pietta .36 Griswold I shoot is remarkably accurate.  I've been using 15 grains of T7 too (the rough equivalent of 17.25 grains black). 

Did Mr. Kernriver get this gun new or is it one of the many brass beaters that are out there?

Good vid and fun.  Thanks Shotgun. Without your post Iíd a lived and died without ever having heard of this guy, Karl Kasarda.  A competent presenter. Good diction. A fine Arizona desert background, too. When I first heard his voice I thought hey!, he toks Home Boy.  Sho nuff,  heís from the beach cities S. of LA (Huntington Beach).  Trouble is though, heís a Gottverdammte Satanist.  Canít start putting up with that shit.  His file, on review, donít look any too good.  He makes an interesting vid though.  All fun stuff, anyway ya cut it.  Thanks, bud.

Colt Capsuckers / Re: Cap Sucking Colts
« on: July 11, 2020, 03:53:20 PM »
Very clearly, people have a lot of trouble with caps.  I used to use CCI No. 10ís but their sizing is inconsistent.  Remington 10ís are the same every time and fit just fine on the stock Pietta cones that I use on eight different revolvers.  Stock main springs, too. I use each of those guns quite a lot and none have cap rakes.

Iíve polished the hammer faces on all of them and on the Coltís have also polished that cap channel on the recoil shield that leads off to the right.  After seating the caps I go around again and gently press each one with a wooden dowel.  I do that out of habit and when I forget that step - the caps still stay on after firing.  I have to use my thumbnail to remove spent caps.

I have no idea why I donít suffer the troubles described throughout the C&B shooting world.  Dumb luck is as likely an explanation as any I can identify.

I know, lucky me an stuff - but honestly, WTF is going on?  Happily perplexed.

Where do you do your shooting?  Some members here are able to shoot on their own property and in some cases right off their own back porch.  Others use public lands like BLM federal properties or state recreation areas.  Others use private or public shooting ranges.  Iím wondering where the members here do most of their shooting.   Also, how often do you bust caps and primers?

This morning I took a Pietta Remington .36 over to the range.  Fire risk being what it is here I usually take BP guns to the range during the summer months.  Iíd rather get into the forest to shoot but this time of year itís hella dry and much less safe than the range.

For walking, hiking, riding the local trails I find pre-rolls to be a great convenience.  At the range, where I do most of my summer fire season shooting, pouring powder into chambers is still a perfect pleasure.

Our betters & masters here in Calistan (may Allah shit in their beards or whatevers) have forbidden us the use or possession of laser sights.  Being an ever-compliant obedient citizen then, I donít own that system.  The iron sights on my Combat Commander (1973) work just fine.  Been CCín that thang since I was barely out of knickers. Itís never had its picture taken and so all the much better for it never having happened.

At night I just point and click - was good enough for government work and it still is.  Carried a Sig Sauer for awhile (about 60 days) but I soon missed that Colt being where it was supposed to be. 

Coltís are pretty much best at everything and in the olden days of the seventies a working boy could actually afford one.

Eldest son is getting a Rock Island like the ones above.  He has my blessing upon it.
