Tall Tales / Re: Happy New Year Coffee

Kid
I remember how I learned to drive a manual shift.  It consisted of being told how to do it, then being turned loose in an A&P grocery store parking lot.
Oh I forgot to mention the fully articulated snow plow on the front, the foot of snow in the lot I was supposed to push to the corners, the light poles to avoid and this had to be done before the store opened!  Somehow the poles, the truck (clutch, transmission, body and all) and me all survived and I came out a “clutcher”.  Oh, and this was done at around 3:00 AM, while snowing, and I was only 18.  Needless to say traffic laws were not even on my mind ;D.

Quit yer whining, you lived didn't you, if you would have got killed they would have made you walk it off.   ;D  I was 12 and it was in the pasture.

Are you still falling down a lot?

Falling down never a good thing. I'm supposed to be extra cautious about that & I also had surgery last Friday. Nothing over 8 lb for 6 weeks to prevent stitches opening or worse a hernia. Figure that means I'm ok to shoot a lightweight 22 & take short walks as long as don't slip.

I'll get to green pastures & spring one way or another 😁 👍

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: Herters 45 Colt?

The majority (not all) of my Herters boxes list the manufacturer at Fiochi.   I have not bought Fiochi before, but I think some is made in southern Missouri.

Gunsmithing / Re: Krag parts....Sources?
« Last post by Niederlander on Yesterday at 10:45:13 AM »
Drydock has covered the best sources.  Regimental Quartermaster has some Krag parts.  I'd also check any of the used part places.  A lot of times they'll have a few Krag parts, sometimes not even listed.  Ask what they have.  Gun shows can provide some, too.

Didn't know USFA ever made stainless guns.

I agree, but they did do them in the white, i.e. China Camp guns, and these look to me to be Italian parts guns.

They also have the bullseye ejector rod but the newer cross pin frame. Does that mean they are prewar?

STORM / Re: I did a dumb thing......

It has been a long time since I messed with them. And like a fish caught a long time ago tends to still grow, the problems with these pistols did also. They weren't nearly as bad as I remembered. One has been re-assembled into a functioning gun, and the other will be also, as soon as I find the parts I put somewhere where they won't get lost. So all is not lost, looking forward to getting them "dirty" again.
That sounds like a good plan. Post photos if you can.
