ST, that looks plenty modern enough for me. I Like it!

Well, I've started my CAS persona by just pushing back my birthday year by a 100 years(1857), too young for the civil war but right on time for the Indian wars. Roll Eyes

So now I'm in 1917.  Grin

I get to see motorcars, motorcycles, airplanes and semi autos.  Grin

Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

Slim i sent 2 replies, not sure you got them.
I got 'em.

This one was made in 1902. Works flawlessly and it's accurate. JMB was indeed a genius.
These pistols made semi autos a reallity. To the point that a browning became synonyme for pistol in early XXth century Europe.
Is it .32 or .380?

Rained most of the afternoon.
'Tis 58 and sunny. High of 78.

Morning all.

About being overcome with wildfire...  Yeah, we did.

 http://www.redding.com/story/news/2017/09/02/labor-day-heat-wave-continues-whiskeytown-cautions-against-visits/628959001/

7440 acres, 141 structures destroyed in 6 hours.  This started Wednesday and blocked my route home, so I've been stuck in my tower.  I got to come home Yesterday through a back road, but I spent most of the afternoon working with an engine delivering supplies into the fire area.  Along about eight miles of highway it's an absolute moonscape.  There was one place where a fellow had a bunch of old cars, and those are all puddles of melted metal now.  Nothing made it out of the fire.  The darn thing was moving at 40mph.  I know several people who lost their homes and everything on their properties.  It's not good.

So, there's my news for the week.

Very true, and .22 is harder still. But, I find it, sometimes days later, sometimes years later... sometimes.

Every case is hard to find in grass. Angry
Even .45 ACP cases. They seem to hide from me on purpose. They also have the nasty habit of laying upright with the mouth facing up becoming almost invisible in the grass.

Even though the .32 wasn't ejecting to the grass, I managed to loose one. Angry

Tough. I had a fire near me last month. First time in my life I got evacuated from my home. There was no real danger. But I guess the officials overreacted because of that previous fire that had important loss of lives.

I know .380 is pretty hard to find. My LCP scatters it far and wide-I tried using an 8X10 tarp, but most of them missed it.

Try hanging the tarp like a curtin.  It will pile up on the ground below it. This has worked for me, a tarp or old sheet works best. Cardboard or wood will cause it to bounce.  Since i don't cast i have only reloaded 32 with 31cal balls. Both acp and 32 long. I may have some mixed .32 brass and dies i might be able round up to trade off.

 Finding that brass is hard to find on crushed gravel too.


TK glad you are okay.. ya'll  are taking a back seat to Harvey. But we all are praying for snow out there.

Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

The SP101 shoots high in double action, but right on in single action. It probably is me.  Roll Eyes I have to load more .38's for more testing.  Wink  Setting up to load, now.

'Tis 69 and cloudy. Sun it trying to peak out. High of 72.

I was loading 125 grain TC over some titegroup. At the upper end of chart. It seem to handle them fine in the 2" barrel.

I tried some Hornady critical defence. 96 grains my loads had about same recoil and were very accurate. I never tried a "BoxO Truth" water jug test on them from either that or either of the S&W's, the Critical defence are a $1 a round. So getting too involved i won't. I am not as pretty as Mike Bellvue or Hickok so free ammo doesn't come to me for favorble reviews.


The SP handles .357 just fine. The S&W's are .38's the Model 10 has a replacement barrel and is plus p. Having the Ruger in .357 is a great option.

Morning all.

Still smoky here.  The fire is throwing a lot of sparks and spot fires.  The closest is about 4 miles away and 10 acres.  We're pretty safe here, since this area is pretty well fire safed (trees and lawns trimmed, etc), but we're loading the cars just in case.

Once this all gets over and done, I'm looking at getting an R&D cylinder for my Pietta '51.  I'm thinking I might get a new barrel and cut it to 5.5 inches, maybe shorter, so I can effectively have four guns in one.  Roll Eyes I figure a little 5 inch barrel, loaded up with some 38 Short and those snakeshot cups would make a nice little companion when I'm out deer hunting if I felt like popping a squirrel, or jackrabbit.  Plus, conversions are just cool.  Roll Eyes

TK, if you get the cylinder intended for use with un-lined .375 bore guns, it's bored straight through, no "step" in the chamber. You could use .357 brass for shotshells, just load powder, wad, shot, another wad. No shot capsule needed.

However-having played with shot rounds in revolvers before, I can't recommend trying them on squirrels or rabbits. Patterns out of a rifled barrel at anything over 8-10 feet is pretty bad.

Almost missed it. I'll be lookin for .25 brass soon enough (not really  Grin). Also waiting for the paperwork for a 1906 FN. Same thing as the Colt 1908 vest pocket but made by FN. As a side note, it was the only JMB design that was manufactured to the same specs in both sides of the pond.

You just have to be vewy vewy qwiet, and sneak up on them. Just watch out for those wascawy wabbits, they like to stick their fingers in the barrel, or tie it in knots Wink

I have noticed locally FNAmerica has commericals running here.  Been aired on what i thought to be a Liberal owned network. The Food Channel.  Of course i just watched Andrew Ziimner shoot 4 hogs, from a air boat and earlier eposode some squirrels.
