It was very odd. Cast was really out there. Brando was really over the top on this.  I found I could not turn it off.

I lived and worked on a ranch in the “Breaks” that was area they depicted in the movie.
The ranch had a remains of a dugout cabin, the owner said, was used by horse and cattle thief’s. It was 10 or more years afterwards that I seen this movie.

Whipped up some guacamole for nachos and a movie. I found Appaloosa and downloaded it. However it has Indian subtitles. See if I can watch without being distracted.

I never said it was good.



Morning coffee is up. So is the humidity.

Didn’t sleep we’ll last night, I might head back to bed. Lots of bands of rain in and out the past couple days. Calling for more today.

A mostly cloudy with a few brief rain showers yesterday. Cooled down the day from mid 80's to mild very present upper 70's by late afternoon.

I have decided to sell one of my J-Frames a Mod. 60 in .357. I'll consign it to my LGS Tomorrow ( he's Closed on Mondays )

I have several J-frames and I have the gumption to pass this one on   sell while gun sales are HOT

Morning all.

Didn’t sleep well last night either. Oh well.

I should get word on my truck today. Fingers crossed.

Major 2, I have a pair of J-frames, a 342 PD and a Model 60 Ladysmith I bought for my mother, Both in .38 special, I don't think it would be pleasant to fire off a .357 mag in a 11 ounce J-frame, The model 60 might be a little less violent... ;) ;)

It's not bad with Hornady 38 Critical Defense but unpleasant with  .357  would be better I suppose with pachmayr like grips.

It is also too bling with the SS & Pearl grips... just to fru fru for my tastes , it would work for a New Orleans cathouse

My Dear Major -
that is a wise choice.
A J frame in .357 is not my idea of pleasant. And if one MUST have a J-frame in .357, my opinion is to give
it at LEAST a 3" barrel so it does not burn the hand the feeds it. The Fireball at the muzzle and force cone is terribly wicked
on the short barrels..... not to mention the possibility for medical attention to the recoil-crippled hand afterwards....

I must admit when it comes to the idea of a "ppocket pistol" , the old .44 spcl Charter Bulldogs were hard to beat.
And when I found I had "as good" or better performance out of a slimmer package ( ie airweight colt officers) I went that route.

What amazed me was the weight

The SS Smith Mod 60  weight is 22.58 oz. empty ...
My Sig 365  with a loaded 12 round Mag is  23. 2 oz. 
so the Sig is about 1/2 oz. heavier w/ 12 round loaded VS 5 round capacity empty revolver ...


I have a Mod 36  in both 2" & a 3"  inch barrels and use Hornady 38 Critical Defense,
 as I did with Mod 60, In it and the Mod 36's nice recovery and decent groupings 
with .357's no bueno coming back on target with the Mod.60
Down the road it will go  :)

Evening all.

Quite a day today. It started off by watching a crackhead change her underwear on the side of main street, followed less than five minutes later by a motorcycle cop dropping his bike while dismounting.

My truck was... an ordeal.  Got the starter and battery cables replaced. One would think that might be a reasonable sum of money, but $600 does not fit that description.  Upon inspection, they installed a chrome/stainless starter. I’m not sure the reasoning behind a shiny starter is, but I’m not a fan. Remind me to do my own starter work in the future.

Also, somehow 5 of my oil pan bolts went missing at some point in the past two weeks. ???  I have it Jerry rigged with Ace screws until my set of OeM parts arrive.

In other news: my mother will be arriving in Kalispell aboard an Amtrak in the morning, to accompany us to Kentucky, so we’ll be picking her up then.
