Will you be able re-use any fixtures, gun holders, etc. from the old one on the new one?

Those old birds were a different breed. I knew an old fellow (he died in 2007, I think) who was a pilot in the B-25 and B-17, and was part of the “100 Hump Club” for surviving 100bombing runs on Japan, taking off from India, flying over the Himalayas(the hump), hitting the main islands, and landing back in Liberated parts of China. This is unpressurized aircraft, with open bomb bay doors. I think I’ll pass on that experience.

In other news, I was productive today. Dropped off my truck at the transmission shop at 7:45 (turns out the whole problem was one of the secondary cooler return lines had a leak that was preventing the torque converter from working right. Darn those. Automatic transmissions). Discovered that somebody had tried to steal my catalytic converter, but was foiled by the mounting bracket bolts being rusted and seized. The one time rust helped a body.

Had my DOT physical for my CDL this afternoon,  then visited two separate farm and ranch stores looking for horse supplements and trailer roof sealer. In the process I stumbled into the shooting aisle and got the one and only bottle of Accurate #5, and now I have to figure out what to do with it. I guess load some 38+p or something. Such an affliction.  ::)

I admit I'm cheap, but I would dump that on the flower bed as fertilizer.  :(

All; I see this event as an introduction to true cowboy in John Wayne’s birth place. My preference, true representation.
This year, limited to 1 shootout on museum grounds, & anyone wanting to walk around town dressed cowboy, healed not loaded.
Where it goes from here, don’t know!
Possible shoot outs at downtown or other locations?
I se a larger potential here!

After running my old jogging stroller guncart for a year and a half, finally figured out most of what I would want in my next one. So today found a 2 seat jogging stroller at the Goodwill for $20 and brought it home. Started on it, still have some more stuff to do before Saturday's match, but pleased so far.
NCOWS / Re: Wish lists...

Reviewing posts, I have many that made the list.
My favorites, Merwin’s.
Have a short barreled 44 single action with skull crusher grip, & a 7 shot 32 DA.
Next a couple acquisitions this year, a couple of Remington Rolling Blocks.
1st, my “Ugly Baby” in 44/40. Baby Rolling Block, sn 24. Less than 10% nickel remains, standard config 18” or 20” bbl. Mine likely prototype at 17.5” bbl.
If NCOWS adds a single shot category, I am there!
2nd, an 1871 Army. Nickname “Thumper”. Shooting it with 56/50 Spencer, 365 grain bullet, & minimum BK, recoil sharp.
About 6000 produced, 5000 for USA, mine is an unaltered civilian model.

No, Joe.  I made it out of 3/16" thick mild steel.  I am going to use a steel ferrule with the guard, when I install it.

As much as I love my Dave Anderson 1860 conversions (Truth and Justice),  I could never part with my Saber River and its little brother 5.5".  They are just cool.  Both have the new two hand cylinder pawl (?) from Kirst, and are rock solid, with timing dead on.

Nope, I shoot equally slow with both LOL! ::) ::) ::) ::)

So, you could also say that you shoot equally as fast with both!   ;D
