    Shooting the Breeze- general chit chat

    Shootin' the breeze! What a hoot! I do that a lot when I shoot. Been busy lately. No time for Forum fun. Did go to our old family place in Eastland County on the lake on Thursday, prowling through the thick brushy portion of the place for most of the afternoon, hiking for hogs. Maybe...

    Seduced by Yet Another Bottleneck in Decline

    Glad you picked that up. Looks effective. I looked long and hard at a .400 Corbon barrel for nearly a year. It was on a gun show promoter friend's table and looked interesting as something else to hand load for. Was both sorry and glad to see it finally sold.

    Early 1950s IWC with their famous and wonderful Caliber 89 movement combined with their classic dial.

    Watch Ya Wearing

    Love Black Bays with the red insert. Well, any of the Black Bay variants are good looking watches, but that hue of red really "floats my boat."

    Carry and face coverings

    I hadn't given this any consideration, but then I'm not wearing masks. Not going anywhere. Tomorrow I will be heading to the turkey woods for a few days. Wonder if the turkeys will be wearing masks?

    Marlin 39a Mountie

    Just now saw your thread jkingrph. Sounds like you have some Marlin 39 goodness right there. It was one of those "where have you been all my life moments" for me when I finally picked up a Model 39A last summer at the San Angelo, Texas gun show. An honest Injun rifle from out of West Texas...

    Watch Ya Wearing

    The Lady Banks rose is in a profusion of bloom today. Wearing the "yard watch" today. My original beater huntin,' fishin,' chores watch, a military style Glycine from the post-war era. I original bought it in the mid-1980s in a pawn shop for a few dollars.

    Watch Ya Wearing

    Hang in there Ejones. Hoping you're doing well at this point after the surgery. I've done that a couple years back so empathize. Didn't wear a watch either while I was in the hospital recovering. IWC with caliber 89 movement today.

    Past Gun Buys You Are So HAPPY About Now

    Mower's set high. It's just dry and hot here most of the growing season.

    Past Gun Buys You Are So HAPPY About Now

    Well ... it never has been a gun I was particularly happy about. Yard mowing is better than lying on the bottom of Lake Leon, which is where I considered flinging it after it again began misbehaving a couple years ago. It was a little stinker to break in to the point it'd run right. Worked...

    Past Gun Buys You Are So HAPPY About Now

    Oh, I do have a crummy Kel Tec P3AT. Tried carrying it a few times, but didn't trust it to do the big job if it was called upon. It's been demoted to "yard gun" for pocket carry while mowing the lawn. I do only carry it with the six round magazine capacity including the one "up the spout,"...

    Past Gun Buys You Are So HAPPY About Now

    OOOooo... I don't know. The .380 would have to get up pretty early in the morning to best the good ol' .38 S&W. I posted this narrative some years ago just for fun after playing with the cartridge. Cartridge Discussion: .38 S&W - Ghost From Bygone Times An ancient handgun cartridge, the...

    Past Gun Buys You Are So HAPPY About Now

    Ol' Army buds. Colt and Smith & Wesson Model 1917 .45s. I set out to collect US military arms as a teen. Gathered many representative specimens before I married. It's amazing how expensive US military small arms have become. Colt adopted the grand New Service revolver which was in current...

    Past Gun Buys You Are So HAPPY About Now

    I could list any of several which, upon reflection have proven especially gratifying to acquire and use. One would be a snub nosed Colt l keep here. Went to the bankruptcy auction of a local gun shop some years ago. After I'd spent too much cleaning up on reloading supplies for my larder and...

    Run on Ammo?

    Found a small shop on the edge of town in Brownwood, Texas that had decent supplies of all the popular calibers though the 9mm was picked over. More esoteric 9mm boutique loads were left as well as smaller quantities of generic FMJ stuff. .223 and .22 Long Rifle abounded. I bought a couple...

    Run on Ammo?

    I've not decided if I'm sick with Coronavirus, but I'm sure sick of Coronavirus! Heard of someone buying up a bunch of bamboo toilet paper at Central Market up in Dallas/Fort Worth for high prices so I've been developing a process to produce mesquite toilet paper this morning. I'll be rich...
