I'll keep praying, Del.

Was called into verk early because of systems being down. Had thunderstorms early this morning. The main network switch went down and doesn't want to power up, maybe because of the storms. Vendor is sending replacement parts. Hopefully they will arrive tomorrow so things will be back to normal before Monday AM.

Gunsmithing / Re: Need 66 loading gate (spoon)

One option is to buy a replacement loading gate and reenforce the tab. Having read about their tendency to break, I used JB Weld to reinforce mine when I first bought the gun. The gun isn't used heavily, but so far it's still working.

Next time you open that beastie up, could you take a picture of the reinforcement. My 66 is on it's way back from the gunsmith and I might as well reinforce that piece before it cause any mischief.
1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / Re: Recommendations for a better 1911

Ruger SR1911, S&W and the Sig 1911s are all excellent guns. They will come with good triggers, excellent sights and magazines. Use grease on the frame rails, especially with a stainless gun. Use good magazines, Actmag, Mec-gar, Chip McCormick, Novak, Ed Brown and Wilson are all VERY good quality. Avoid Promag, Kimber's standard magazines [the Kimpro ones are okay] and "mystery" magazines.
Del, you guys are staying in our prayers here!

1911 & Wild Bunch Shooting / Recommendations for a better 1911
« Last post by Doc Holloman on Today at 01:42:29 PM »
OK, I know this is a perineal question but here goes again:

I’m considering treating myself to a higher quality 1911 than what I have been shooting (Springfield Garrison) and am looking for recommendations.  This was actually triggered by a Facebook post by Capt George Baylor, extoling the virtues of the Standard Manufacturing pistol that he has been testing.  Looks like a good gun and will certainly be worth considering.  But, I want to know what my other options might be.

Criteria:  Wild Bunch MODERN legal.  Price limit $2000.  Series 70-type mechanicals. Minimum work to be done out of the box (I would be willing to change out a front sight to make it WB legal.) Fixed high vis sights.  Single stack. 

Must be readily available ( I have been waiting a year for a gun now and don’t want to do that again. )  Would prefer a new gun.
I have no real manufacturer preference.  That being said, I have had bad experiences with Kimber and Desert Eagle.
Update on Rita, tumor is about the size of a fist, but has not spread beyond.  She will start immune treatment Tuesday and have another one in 3 week again, then 2 weeks after the second she will have another MRI with contrast.  If there is no improvement then they are fairly sure the standard Chemo and radiation will do it, if improved they will continue that immune treatment with the lesser side affects.
I ended up putting some "Mentado" hammers on my Vaqueros a while back. After 30 years of throwing steel around, my hands are pretty beat up. Age does a job on our bodies. Same reason I have gone from shooting "Duelist" to two handed, and now I have to be going to a Crossdraw rig. My right shoulder has been repaired, and my left needs to be replaced. If I want to keep shooting I have to "Improvise and adapt" to persavere.........

Just found this old thread.    Drydock is correct, this is a close description to the KVC Buffalo Shoot, where Drydock distinguished himself.    We are planning it again for October.   Keep an eye on NCOWS board for announcements the closer we get.   

Here is the camp.
