Oh...ah stupid spell check  it was  "COSMEDIC  on another gun of the Previous owner ...

He had acquired
a 357 Mag. Ruger Blackhawk the had been "BUBBA" on and left in tackle box or some such place for years
Buggered main spring and
rust to spots on the finish
 walnut grips
were discolored & faded

The Ruger was a sow ear.....it turned out nice enough I might buy it for the $250 he paid for it  :-\



Oh yeah ------ the Garand  ;D

You know, it?s not a self destructive addiction like booze, tobacco, womanizing, drugs, gambling, golf, bowling, tennis, skydiving, fishing or marriage, well maybe not the last few so much. But at the end of the day after spending your money to sate your hunger you have a nice shiny hunk of blued steel in your little hands to have and to hold till death do you part....Or until you sell it to buy a nicer one. When sass outlawed my most favorite 12 ga pump, the Marlin 24, I bought a 1887 lever, tried my wife?s stoeger and eventually bought a mismatched 97 and then a norinco trench and then a m12. I?m currently waiting on a uberti .45 schofield to arrive along with some correct duds for my Rafe Covington impression. I?m hoping to find a slightly used 1871 open top at the Raleigh show next weekend. I know it?s a long shot. BTW we shoot our BAMM shoot next weekend, thinking that I?ll do my Rico Fardan look. 1903 and a 45. Fun stuff.

My latest is a nice little curio.
Non-functioning, though. About the same size as those cute little Belgian 2mm pinfire used in jewelry or keychains.

ah my dear Ed, you too?

I am still restoring our family hierloom one of the model 1898, Grade C, some early owner carved some Amazing Devices upon the wood of ours
fortunately, I found new wood on Fleabay of all places and it is a work in progress.

When "they" claimed my perfectly sound, safe, checked over Marlin was unsafe at any speed and could not be used,
I retalliated by getting one of these little Belgian percussion gems and telling them
"don't worry, I will just reload on the clock"



it does go well with any C&B revolver....

The WB would just enact a rule outlawing ml shotguns. But a single shot like a martini would be period correct for non c&b pistols. Cute shotgun Professor.
