    Oh man--I am excited just hearing about somebody getting a new Les Baer. Congratulations! As far as the break in period goes.......it helps if you whisper a few sweet nothings to the gun before you try racking the slide for the first time. ...

    birch replied to a thread Sighting in in Our Town
    I am a fan of old school black rifles. With that being said, it is very easy to go through a couple of mags sighting in an iron sight fixed carry handle AR. There are two sights to get straight--the front one for elevation, and the rear sight for...

    I am not a gun snob--I just love fine guns. I have owned just about every sub-1500 dollar 1911 on the market. Some of them were fine. Others were OK. Many were POS not worthy of John Browning's toilet leavings. I can say--without a...

    I was just at the LGS and found a Marlin 94 Limited Edition in 45 Colt. It is one beautiful gun. However, I don't think I could shoot that baby without fear of scratching it. So.....I found a normal Marlin 94 in 45 colt with the big ol' fat...

    I will probably get whacked upside the head by many on here, but I had a Taurus Ultralight in 38 special years ago. I ended up trading it off, but it was a fine little revolver and If I ever run across another for 250 dollars, I will have another.

    birch replied to a thread Smith 63-5 Tool Marks in Rimfire Area
    I just sent mine back to Smith and Wesson. I was a little upset with the tool marks, but then I started looking at the barrel and I couldn't believe what I saw. I looked at the front sight ramp, and noticed it was machined about 1/8 of an inch...

    My old man worked workover rigs for Beckman Oil in Central/western michigan during the eighties. There was one winter that I only saw him one day a month. He worked 16 hour plus days and the days he had off, he slept. It was a rough life for a...

    I decided to put a Unertl scope back on my 513, and cannot find my scope blocks. I have searched wide and far. If you happen to have a set, they sure would be apprecieated. I know I could buy them from Steve Earle, but I was hoping to check with...

    I am looking to find a set of grips for a second gen SAA. I would like to find the black rubber instead of the wood grips, but I am not picky. My dad got rid of his hard rubber set sometime in the 70's, and I would like to bring his old gun...
