I had worked all of the North & South Trilogy, and remember her as sweet, personable and a stunning beauty.
May she rest in peace.

OH! My, that is just WOW!

I have been surfing eBay for Milsurp holsters to fill the gaps in Gun's I have without.
I scored a WW2 Husqvarna M07 holster.

I need to find a WW2 Enfield Web holster for my Tankers revolver

I just started using 244

For the reason you describe... Unique is not available anywhere that I am aware of... I have been using 244 in 45 Colt and 44-40... There is not much reloading data on 244 probably because it’s a relatively new power, so I have been proceeding with caution and have been satisfied with its performance... it’s not as dirty as unique and has similar performance characteristics.

 Greetings all.

More white stuff through the weekend on through tomorrow. About all there is to say weather wise. It’s Montana in the winter. ::)

My weekend was spent in Great Falls for the monthly giving of time to Uncle Sam. They held the unit Christmas party on Saturday, but my whole flight was excused for having helped arrange chairs. We took the opportunity to go bowling. I also acquired a cold from somewhere which has been less than pleasant.

On the topic of snakes: we once had a 5 foot prairie rattler get in the hanger at the Guard base. They were going to call a local “snake wrangler” to come get it, but instead someone just ran it over with a scissor lift and that was that.

In my state (Arizona) The County Sheriff is the highest ranking law enforcement in the county. His jurisdiction includes all cities, towns and villages. City or town PDs do not have jurisdiction outside of the city or town limits. When I was a deputy sheriff we were taught in the academy we had the authority to enforce all laws, Federal, State, County, and town or city, according to the State Constitution.

I was a deputy in the 1970 and 1980s. I don't know how much that had changed from the 19th Century, nor do I know how it might have changed since I retired, in this the 21st Century.


In the years of the Arizona Rangers (1901-1908) they were the top law enforcement of the state, hence the resentment from other agencies in the state.

A friend in Texas said West Texas Rattl'Snek on the Lano don't care if you have them at all.  Some told him he needs hogs, tame or wild, the wild hogs ate one of his Great Danes.
Great Dane.

I was wondering if you had a chance to work on this and if the Dillon Tubes worked or not. I am looking at the Pro 6000 and wish to use if for 44-40 along with 9mm and 45acp. I do see that an e-bay retailer has the tubes you referenced (or at least darn close). For $30 you get 20 4 foot tubes. I have not used this vendor and have no connections to them at all. Anyway, I was just curious if you had pursued this or not. Thanks.

Yup, wish Mom a Happy Birthday from here!
Well weather was a blustery day as Winnie the Pooh would have said. But I did pick up the S&W today [pics are up in the Gunaholic thread]. Hope the rest of you guys have a good day today too.
