    Youtube Gun Experts

    I watch gun guys on youtube for the entertainment value. If they're shooting a gun that I'm interested in I'll watch. If they're personable I'll watch. I don't enjoy Paul Harrel's videos or HR Funk. I watch them sometimes but something is lacking about them. I like BigDaddy1911 even though...

    should i do it?

    If I'm understanding this situation correctly, I have to ask what good will your Wrangler be to you if you're pushing your mower cutting grass and fall over dead from a heart attack? Make the trade, or finance a new one or just let the grass get away from you, but stop using the old mower...

    Ruger SR1911 10mm

    Good points, Gramps. I've stuck to factory loads in the 3 or 4 LCPs I've owned/used and have had no complaints. They're fantastic little pistols for what they are.

    Kelly Glenn-Kimbro SP101

    I bought one of these for my daughter a couple of years ago. I view it as a very compact and handy yet still capable of using full power, 357 Magnum. It fills the bill as a hiking and camping gun. (Actually, the gun I bought doesn't have the signature on it so it's just the standard issue...

    Flitz polish

    Flitz does thin the bluing and if you apply it too many times it leaves fine scratches behind. I used it when I first heard of it and it did make my blue revolvers shinier looking, but it's easy to go overboard with it.

    So this dumb guy..........Updated pictures

    It was about 20 years ago when I came home from a gun show with a Phillips and Rodgers 500 Linebaugh that I'd put on the credit card for north of a grand. My wife was surprised but told me she was happy I was able to buy something I'd wanted for a long time.

    Is it possible to shoot out a Single Six 22 Magnum barrel?

    This video shows a Single Six in 22 Magnum that doesn't group well. The maker of the video says Ruger told him that the barrel has been shot out.

    88 yds with the 41 Shorty

    Crocs are cheap, sixshot and unlikely to be stolen. Maybe you should keep a spare pair or two in the truck for emergency gear.

    Baseball Season

    The baseball here in Fairbanks is the Alaska Goldpanners. It's a summer league for players on their way to the Majors. I think they're a team with the Dodgers. Lots of guys who made it to the big leagues spent some summers playing baseball here. Their signature game is the Midnight Sun game...

    Brassie Ruger Old Army

    flatgate gave me some info on a stainless ROA I traded for years ago and also a Single Six in 32 H&R. He seemed like a nice guy and I'm sorry to hear that he's gone on.

    Opinions on these grips - Ivory or Plastic?

    I'd say they are elephant ivory grips. You can see the “Schreger lines.”
