    Thin Man started a thread Odd Rossi 92 SRC in Leverguns
    A few days ago I saw an early production Rossi rifle branded as a 92 SRC. I call it early because it carries the Interarms roll marks. All of the metal is blue, caliber is 45 Colt, and the barrel would be 22" to 24" long, did not get a chance to...

    When seating boolits with a long ogive I have used the hot glue frequently. Start by lightly oiling the nose of a boolit, fill the seating stem with hot glue, press the boolit into the stem and lightly twist these to form the cavity. Remove the...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Dog opened dove season! in Our Town
    I have always considered the opening day of dove season as my "New Year's Day", the first day of legal regulated game hunting. This is the day all our old friends gather to enjoy each other's company, show off our new (or new to us) shotguns, chow...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Firearms magazines in Our Town
    Could it be that your stare's political left leaning is having a spillover effect on the sales of firearms magazines? The "politically correct" crowd must have things their way, and that includes everything the majority of this site's members care...

    I remember the Foxworthy series. He had a lot of really pointed captions. A local store started selling T-shirts with his quotes on them. I spied one that said "You might be a redneck if you have more dishes in the sink than in the cabinets." ...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Too long unused in Leverguns
    Your rifle is very similar to my Rossi trapper. These are the handiest of all the lever rifles and a thrill to carry and shoot on a frequent basis. Hope you get to spend more time enjoying your rifle.

    Colt Lightweight Commander, 45 acp, pre-70 series. It was the most accurate 45 auto I had ever owned or fired. I bought it new in 1968 but by 1970 was needing cash to get married. Sold it to a friend who later got into trouble with it and it was...

    I have held an appreciation for big bore revolvers since the '60's. Probably the first I bought would have been a S&W 1917 (too long ago to recall) and I was hooked from then until now. These revolvers deliver reliability, power and accuracy (with...

    Recently I installed a M-Carbo trigger lit on a Kel-Tec 2000 (9mm). The original trigger pull was over 10# and the M-Carbo kit brought it down to 5.5#. The owner had hoped for a lighter final weight but was happy with what he got.
