Tall Tales / Re: May flowers bring coffee, tea and grub

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are ready.

Got some of the garden planted. Moved the round pen around the garden to keep the horses out.  ::)

'Tis 60 and cloudy. "Breezy. Mostly cloudy. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 80s. South wind 10 to 15 mph increasing to 15 to 25 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain 20 percent."

Got some 6mm Remington brass to modify. They run fine in my Swede. I also met a shooter on another forum who has 6.5x55 brass and bullets and is willing to trade for wheel weights. I’m waiting on his stuff to arrive and then I’ll line the box with luan, fill it and send it back. A bud at yesterday’s BAMM borrowed 4 of my 6mm reloads for his 96/38 Swede, ran fine in his rifle. I used my 96 in the last stage. Definitely going to get that straight bolt bent but not enough to interfere with the stock. Bought an unissued bolt so the numbered original will not be messed with. It will have to be fit as it will not close. Still working on the annealer.

IMHO the Slim Jim is the most exquisite holster design ever
Just as I consider the Colt 1860 Army the most elegant revolver ever....

Opinions however may vary

To be honest, I always thought slim Jim's looked funny.

Morning all.

Currently 105 degrees on the Dark Continent.  They let me off shift early because I was “working too hard,” whatever that means. At the time I was reading through our Safety Data Sheets to make sure they were up to date. But I’ll take it.

Waiting for laundry to finish so I can put it away and take a shower, then off to catch some z’s.

...this is what I have done to honor my father, a good friends father, my wife's grandfather, father and his brothers. For our get together tomorrow.
Guys, 14 treatments done —14 to go, 3 more weeks. Modifying my diet has helped my gut issues.
We shot our BAMM today. I think we had 8 boltgunners and 4 cowboys. Shot it clean but still had a miss- a dead pistol primer. Doh. Came in 3rd boltgun category, had a real bad 1st stage with weak ejections and a loaded round that kinda got stuck and wouldn’t feed through my 1896 Krag SRC. Finally cleared it. I had chamber checked all of my loads but not run them through the magazine. My first match with it and I think I also wasn’t working the bolt hard enough to the rear as I was running it too fast. Did better on the other stages but I will check out the ejector. Used a pair of Smith .455 HE’s and my Norinco trench. Also tried my new Swede for the last stage. Nice day, good breeze, a fun shoot. Here’s Chance, Rico Fardan and myself in uniform. We dress the part.

It might be easier to simply order a new barrel to your desires.
