Correct and smokeless powder loads are fine with this gun and the imports.

Unless of course you intention in buying it was to shoot black powder cartridges.  Then it is an over priced none functioning replica.

I have an answering message that explains that I don't need a car warranty, I don't need a loan, i didn't enter a contest, I'm sure the IRS isn't about to arrest me. It ends with "if this is an emergency you should have called 911 first."
But when I have the time and the inclination I answer with "Bueno. Quien es?" when they try to talk I just keep saying "Como?" and "No puedo oir" I finally end with an unprintable obscene tirade in Spanish about why did you %$#&ing call call me if you can't speak to me. It has cut down on the calls.
My friend Zach does the same, except in Yiddish which really throws them off.
Use your imagination and have fun.

Must say, having the antibody infusion to make up for the not enough antibodies my body made after the vax sure knocked things out quickly, felt better Tuesday when they got me back to the car than when I went in, actually haven't felt this good in a month and a half, tomorrow I am no longer considered a Leper and can go back among people other than the two that live here.   

Actually had a mild case of the gleep but I have no doubt the Drs at UNMC Med Center are right when they say with out the vax building up some immunity I very likely would have died basing it on others of my health and age that had it with out the vax.  We almost went to the ER last Monday night Tuesday morning before I went to Omaha, had little sleep and had to lay on my stomach to breath.   Since I'm a patient at UNMC they could get me in for the infusion before Lincoln could.   

Was such a good boy there Rita stopped on the way home and got me a real A&W root beer, not the canned shit.  Paper cup, but that's fine.

I had a similar result with the Fauci-Ouchie. When the Mrs had “The Krud,” she was knocked down pretty hard, and still not 100%.  I had the sniffles for a couple days, and that was it.
No frosty mug?  :o


A&W without a frosty mug is blasphemy.

Evening all.

Had a productive, if rainy weekend. Changed 4 sets of window blinds yesterday, I bought a nice Wilson Bomber jacket (it was used and poorly cared for, and required a bit of boot-brushing and half a tube of Obenauf’s LP), and took the Mrs to dinner. Today I changed the rotors and pads on the front of the Jeep, did the wipers, and cleaned the guest room.


The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: Tang sight
« Last post by jthbjr on October 24, 2021, 10:28:36 PM »
I have an original Lyman tang sight on my half magazine 1876. The holes are the same spacing on the 76, 86, and 94. The original is marked "I" on the bottom. The 76 base is the same as the 94 as to where the tang stem is mounted but the tang stem is the height of the 86 stem. The 86 sight stem is further back on the tang. Hope this helps.

They actually do shoot the round they were designed for - these were designed for smokeless, and S&W used Black Hills ammunition when they fired them.

Try Trail Boss - that works well.

Scouts Out!

$85 plus shipping.

2. Second pair of pants for this.  36" waist by measurement.  These are heavy and feel like a nice wool twill. They don't feel like a blend.  32" inseam.

I finnally shot some of the 3.8 grains of Trail Boss/140 heeled bullet loads from my 1895 Colt DA.  Better than the othes, but still need a little more crimp.  Pretty anemic, overall.  Might also try Unique....

The old style set where you use a hammer, not looking for ebay buy it now price please.

Only interested in complete, don't want the plastic shot measure but need the adjustable steel one.
Good usable shape, could care less about box and documents.
Looking to load magtech brass shells and thought this would help.

Pm me with pics and price shipped please

Shipping is to 42301 but I would assume you would flat rate ship

I am glad you got it.  If I had it I probably would donate to the Colorado Military Forces Museum.

While I did not have to pay the $1400 he originally wanted, I still paid too much for it to end up donating it to a Museum I would never see.  While I am comfortable in my retirement, I'm not flush enough to be that altruistic....
