If your one who occasionally howsoever the fence to check out the "Lawn" at that "other" place ...........

Dead.  It would seem their "lawn" has died.  Gone all BROWN.  Nothing works, it would seem.

There are some folks (whom literally LIVE there) whom are chewing their finger nails down to the first knuckle.


PS:  I wasn't there.  I just "Heard it on the Grapevine" as it twer  Grin

There are a couple close by that I attend....
Thunder River Renegades in Plantersville, TX, and Willow Hole Cowboys in North Zulch, TX. 
TRR has matches on the first weekend of each month, and WHC has them on the 3rd weekend.
Come out and see us when you get here.  We'd be glad to have you join in the fun!!

As I am about to be relocated to Houston for work, I figured it's the perfect time to making the step from IPSC to CAS. Are there any active clubs in the Houston area?

Gentlemen,  I know this has been covered before, but I can't find it.  Who makes a really good quality double loop cartridge belt for the Krag?  My Quartermaster Sergeant just picked up a nice carbine (pictures later) and now needs a belt.  (Sure wish Jim Kanne was still making them!)

FS: two sets of holsters and a cartridge belt  (cross draw and strong side)

First up is a set of holsters (no belt) made by Ross leather in South Africa.  These are the tooled with concho version. strong side and right hand cross draw. Very nicely made and suede lined in excellent condition Midway sells them for $89 each.  I'm looking for $100 for both shipped.
These fit my original rugers and also a set of Uberitis model P fine.  They are for 5 1./2" barrels

Next is a holster and belt set.  Nicely made and in excellent condition.
Belt and holsters are lined with suede. Some tooling and stitched.  Bullet loops are .45. Belt is 2 1/2" wide.  The belt started its life as a 44/45 size however I removed the billet and resewed it further in to fit me.  It now measures about 40" to the first hole and close to 44" to the last...
somewhere close to 42" in the middle.  I can get better measurements if needed.  These are made in Mexico and sold by
I also added the dollar conchos to the holsters which will stay.  The holsters are both strong side.These fit my original rugers and also a set of Uberitis model P fine.  They are for 5 1./2" barrels.  Looking for $160 shipped.

First I'll take it gets it.   Ask any questions.  Payment by check (will
wait), postal money order or paypal as a gift.  If you think the price isn't good, ask.

Measuring fabric thickness used for patching round ball is a very good idea, as Sir Charles suggest.
This is even more important if one wishes to use a somewhat over sized round ball for the minimum diameter bore fit.
If the patch material is too thin, then it burns out due to the powder charge.
If the patch is too thick, then it may be difficult to start and/or cut by the edges of the grooves. Both of these may cause the patch to fail before leaving the bore of the gun.

A patch material that is .005 thick, should have that measurement doubled to .010, because the patch covers two sides of the round ball when set into the bore.
A .50 cal. rifle, using a .005 thick patch, should use a round ball of about .490 diameter. (.010 smaller than the bore due to the double thickness of a .005 thick patch that is doubled) In this case, one might be able to use a patch that is .006 to .007 thick.

Please note; my example for a .50 cal. firearm and a .005 thick patch is just a minimum combination. The grove depth of the rifling can also be a variable along with the type of rifling used in the firearm.
My best,
