The Longbranch / Re: Something a little different or Gun-a-holic Part II

Dave T's comment on derringers reminded me of a belt buckle I had.  Had a derringer that clipped on the buckle and was spring loaded.  Pushing your stomach out caused the gun to flip open and fire a cap.

The Belt Buckle Derringer was by Mattel, circa 1959  :)  you see them on Ebay quite often.
They are very cool, I wore mine to school, imagine that  :o

Gunsmithing / .44 Magnum Cylinder Throats
« Last post by Niederlander on Yesterday at 03:11:13 PM »
Gentlemen,  I just got a .44 Mag with .426 cylinder throats, and I'm getting some leading.  I'd prefer .429 or .430.  Any of the smiths on here do that work?  Any recommendations?  Thanks!

That's a beautiful rig and I think Marshal has pointed you in the right direction.

Tree forts another treasured memory  :) I built several.
One I recall, in an old tall Banyon tree about 50 or so feet from Biscayne Bay (Miami) just north of the Rickenbacker Causeway I swear it was 30' up, It had 3 levels of decks.
We could see way out across the bay and in to Seaquarium no other trees anywhere near that height.
Developers cut and bulldozed it in 1960 to build the Brickel building. There was also a coral rock cave nearby we played pirates in, they also razed.
 In October of 2016 a portion of the building under re-model collapsed.

The Darksider's Den / Re: Substitutes

Triple 7 is designed for modern in-line muzzle loading rifles, the 209 primer type. Very hot in percussion pistols and cartridge conversions. APP comes closer for the same grain by volume charges of real black. Goex Pinnacle was produced by APP, the difference was that the Goex product was dyed black to more closely replicate real BP color. It is no longer available. The APP product is a grayish color. I still have a goodly store of the Goex that still shoots well and cleans up with ammonia based products like Windex and such cleaners. Way less corrosive  than the Pyrodex-rust-your-gun-crap!

More grunge with Triple 7 than APP.

I don't think the future of CAS is necessarily in the hands of young shooters. I think there's new shooters in their 40's and 50's who have been shooting and have the money to get involved. I've seen quite a few new shooters at the different clubs I go to and most are "seasoned" shooters and CAS is all new to them! JMHO
