I will just say this, Rube.  You are a very fast learner!   :)

Thanks Abilene. The carving and floral stamping has not been something that has come easy to me. I want to get better at it and for me the only way to get better is to just do it. Baby steps I guess.

Hey, those look great! Lots of improvement over your earlier tooling. Keep it up, pard. What's going to be your next project?

Thanks. Not exactly sure on the next project. Maybe a belt for these holsters. Maybe something different.

 :)  Nuisance Here)

I am agreement with Abilene and Pettifogger here.  With perhaps a Caveat.  For the last many Lustrum, I have only shot CAS.  And in shooting CAS, I haven't messed with "long" range at all.  However:

I once toted three of my CAS rifles, all 45 Colt, out to the range with the appropriate number of empty (specified) Pizza Boxes to establish some accuracy information.  After running about 50 rounds thru each, A '73, A "66 and Henry, I observed the group size, group position relating to point of aim and all that paper punching nonsense.

My conclusion was thus.  Everything I shot grouped at the least, into minute of pie plate out to 50 yards.  Hence, since I regularly shoot at 14 X 18 inch targets, the information acquired was actually useless Trivia.  Moot point if you will.  I wasn't missing rifle targets before I went paper punching, and don't miss rifle targets after paper punching.  Of course, since my recovery from a debilitating Bench Rest addiction many Lustrum ago, paper punching has held no real interest.  Burma Shave.

People are still Contagious.  Avoid Them

Books & Movies / 5 Card Stud

Five Car Stud is on TV, haven't seen it in ages.  When Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum are showing off target shooting in the middle of the movie, they each have swing-out cylinder (which they do to reload) revolvers with fake ejector housings.  Then later during a big gunfight in the town, they each are reloading regular SAA's through the loading gate.  Hehe.  Later when Mitchum shoots Yaphet Kotto it is back to double action.
