Well then, in that case I'd suggest a screenshot from Fistful of Dollars where the hombres make fun of his mule and he takes them out.  Good closeup of the gun being fanned.  I'm thinking that is an Italian copy.  Or heck, just a picture of an Uberti copy with the snake grip.  Everyone can relate to that.   :)

I didn't mean were they the same company, I meant did the USPFA guns also come in mostly .38 or only after they changed the name.

Yes I see that, what I had hoped to relay was a popular western image from our movie viewing past. Not realistic but how we might portray our sport. Clint Eastwood had a great influence on cowboy image for many of us.

PLEASE sign me up! I’ve gone waaay overboard for the 1876 replicas! If I had any sense I woulda concentrated all that on a nice original 45-60!!! ( I do feel like I should serve some sort of apprenticeship on a replaceable platform….)

VERY much appreciated Slamfire! I’ll start SHOOTING my age when I get these CH4D dies! We have a very nice little range on the edge of the swamp up north of town!

Greetings all.

Warmed up today to a whopping 26 degrees (that being above zero, and in Fahrenheit ::) ).

I however am not enjoying the weather, as I am laid up in bed, having been thoroughly thrown and stomped by ice and gravity into the stove-up realm. While picking up a 4” flex hose yesterday I managed to slip on the ice and slide down a little embankment…right into an open manhole. Made it about 6 feet  down before an unceremonious meeting with the concrete bottom. Walked away (or rather crawled/limped) with:

-several bruised ribs, one broken
-at least 4 bruised vertebrae, sacral and lumbar (fortunately none of those broke!)
-bruised pelvic wing
-majorly sprained back muscle
-partially torn tendon in left hip
-pretty good cut up the left on my tush to mid back (doc used superglue instead of stictches/staples because pants are a necessity in MT)
-scratched cornea in left eye
-various other bumps and bruises of varying magnitude

So, I’m not going to work for a few days it seems, considering I can hardly get out of bed by myself. And walking farther than the John is not happening either. I declined the offered hydrocodone prescription, a choice which I am somewhat beginning to regret as Aleve only does so much. But I suppose I’ll live.

Y’all watch that ice.

No bueno, TK.
Sorry to hear. I do hope you can find a comfortable position to get some much needed healing sleep.

Oh yeah, I forgot that USFA mostly chambered them in .38.  But was USPFA the same?  It's still a strange barrel marking.  :)
That is correct. USPtFA got sued over the "Pt" and changed to USFA, was my understanding of the whole affair. Maybe Gary G.. could shed some light on it. ??? ;D

Dang dude, that's a wreck ! very sorry, but glad it was not far worse.
  Declining the hydrocodone prescription, might have been a wise call, sometimes the side effects can be nasty.
 You might try Xtra strength Tylenol back relief. 
Aleve and Ibuprofen never much worked for my assorted mishaps, and these have side effect too  ::)

Well, 28 F here right now, going to hit 24 tonight, with freezing rain, sleet and ice supposed to hit around 11pm til daylight. Yeesh, our store has been closed the last 2 days and the only things moving on our street has been a few 4 wheelers. Supposed to start slowly warming sometime tomorrow through the weekend, when it's supposed to get to around upper 50s.

I've got a nice picture if an Iver Johnson Cattleman from about 1975.
Well heck that would work!
