The Longbranch / Re: "Barking Squirrels"
« Last post by Mogorilla on Today at 09:06:19 AM »
Interesting that I have heard of shooting them like that, but not the term.  We always used the term barking when we were calling them in, either with a call or just barking ourselves.   my dad could do a distress call that would bring squirrels in quick and we had 3 or 4 with in 10 minutes of walking into the woods.

Frontier Iron / 32 rimfire
« Last post by Davem on Today at 08:50:14 AM »
Doesn't get mentioned very much but in the old West not everyone was a cowboy. A lot of the towns people didn't want to be lugging a big hogleg so they carried 32 rimfires.  There were holsters and cartridge belts made up for this smaller revolver. In any event, anyone have any info, etc. on the topic?

The idea is to hit the tree right next to the squirrel and the impact, etc. actually killed the squirrel- no damaged meat.  I have never done it, always used a 22 rimfire and either shot them in the ribs (no meat) or head.  Some folks used to eat squirrel brains but now it is more of a hillbilly thing.  The big deal on the barking was that you had to be a really good shot- also like creasing a horse.

STORM / Re: Selleck's Last Stand at Saber River 1860

Many years ago I bought a set of Tom Selleck's movies. The set came with Crossfire Trail, Last Stand At Saber River and Monte Walsh. Three of his best movies in my opinion. Love the stories in each, love the guns in each and love the attention to most of the details in each.

I still watch them often.

Shotguns / Re: Shooting Original 1887 Winchester

I love the deep thud of a BP 12ga.  An 1887 is on my list to get one day.

Thanks for watching. They are def. fun to shoot.

  A glove on your hand that holds the forearm is nice to have if you are doing a lot of shooting, like maybe a round of trap.  Your fingers will thank you!  Does yours have two extractors?

For sure! That barrel gets pretty hot. Mine is the 87 with one extractor. The 1901 has the double extractors I believe.
