2 1/2 hours yesterday, I go in early and I usually get out early and the lady gets to go home maybe closer to time, one doing what should be 2, know an infusion trained nurse wants a job in Lincoln? ::)  She got 3 more patients yesterday and hers can't wait.  Anyway the device wouldn't boot up right after bag and battery change and she tried several times.  Called company Hot line after a 1/2 hour got someone who could help, code 31 can not be fixed by phone, get another serviced pump and program.  Very nice people there at that office, the nurse said if there was trouble call, she'd likely be there till 9.  Quitting time is 5, at least Friday I helped get her out by 5. 

Bet that pays a lot better than some of those BS degrees people get and can't pay off the loan, certainly takes less time and money to learn.

I enjoy the conversions. I only have a few at the moment. I have four 51 Navy Conversions ( two 5.5 and two 7.5 in barrels) but want to add more in the near future. They are my favorite style of gun although I do have a pair of factory Cimarron Remington Sheriff Conversions that can be switched back and fourth to cap and ball.

I still own those originals Skeeter and the Main & Winchester saddle they are pictured on.  I traded for them more then 30 years ago.  A spur collector friend of mine had just bought them off a ranch south of Salmon, Idaho.  They were hanging is his tack shed.  I traded a pair of hand carved R.T. Frazier spur straps for these bags.  Your reproduction is very close.

That is amazing in itself. Love knowing these old rigs are in good hands.

Yes!! Conversions!!  My first one was a "setup " by my favorite gun shop.  I had money down on an ASM Navy. I called and told um I'd be by and pick it up and when I got there, they had this cool thing called a conversion kit  .  .  . "Public Defender" I think is what it was called.  They said they "figured " I'd be interested in it  .  .  .  ( reminds me of P.T. Barnum .  .  . one born every min.!!)!! COURSE I WAS!  So, I left with the Navy and the kit!!  ( turns out P.T. was right!!)  This was about 1988 give er take. Anyway,  after hundreds and hundreds of shots fired and not being able to  figure a way to make "fatter" bullets, I gave up on it and put the cap cyl back in it .  .  .  it was a Tack Driver!!! Haven't had another ".38" since!!!! ( THERE Mr. Barnum!!! Lol)
 Fast forward to 2011 /12  I "rediscovered " conversions  . . . in 45C for .44's  (this I understood!!!)!!!  So, my  brand new Whitneyville and 1st Model Dragoons became 45 Dragoons with Kirst gated conversions, followed by an Army(P), then a Remington(P) with a Howell 6 shot drop cyl, then a another  Army (P), an another Rem(P) with gated 5 shot cyl.( Equalizer from Kirst) an then a pair of Cimarron sourced Army's (U) one in .45C and the other in .45acp!!   They're all a HOOT !!!


Dang!!! Forgot my ROA's !!! All 4 have 45C SS Kirsts!!

I'm just kinda sorta Piling On here.  Ya know, "Plays Well with Others" sort of thing.  I shoot a lot of APP.  Seriously a LOT of APP.  Easiest clean-up of any of the Propellants.  There are several other good points though.  APP requires no Lube.  At'z right.  No Lubes.  None. Nada. Zero. Zilch.  You can shoot Nudie Bullets all day.  If you happen to find you have a goodly pile of Smokeless Lubed bullets, just go shoot 'em.  APP don't care if there is Crayon Lube.  Great stuff.

People are Still Contagious.  Avoid 'em

And your very first post "here" is a snide downer??  Obviously a wondrous way to gain friends and influence people.

Why Post Here if It's Just a Downer??
