    I still have my old ancient Remington Model 8 in .35 Rem caliber. I used to use it for pig hunting a lot and bear hunting years ago too. But I think that there are more current calibers that work as well if not better nowadays. So the...

    Nope, just a regular law enforcement convention. The hosting city typically stages a shooting competition to coincide with the convention. Thanks. It is pretty neat. But lighting off .45 ACP rounds with those tiny grips makes for some stout...

    Many years ago, we got second place at a police team competition. They had a convention that year in the city. It was just two of us on our team, but we missed getting first by a couple of points. Maybe if my partner hadn't gone out drinking and...

    Nice find, and it was nicely spruced back up too. It is amazing about all of the old guns still being used over there.

    Earlwb replied to a thread Siamese Mauser in Military Rifles
    If I remember right, used 7.62x54R brass cases to make my ammo with. it has been a number of years since I played with it. I do not remember any issues with it other than having to cast the correct diameter bullets and resizing the bullets of...

    I wound up with a Walther PPK/S during a pre-Black Friday Sale at a large LGS in the area. I couldn't pass up the deal. Plus they included a brick of .22's for it too.

    Savage made .22 rifles like that in the 1930's. The Savage J Stevens Springfield Model 15 for example. But they didn't have the full length Mannlicher style stocks though. Probably Duo made some rifles based on the Savage design or whomever came...

    I looked at Photobucket a while after they blocked all my pictures from being viewed. But at the time they wanted $400 a year to unlock the pictures. So I deleted all of my pics there and cancelled the account. Later they fired the President of the...

    I don't know, in my old age with aging eyes, I sorta like the rails. it makes it easy to mount a scope or red dot sight on them.

    I think that these gold colored titanium Magnum Research Desert Eagles have to be at the top of the ugly pistol list. But maybe dictators, pimps and drug dealers like them.

    I would agree, you could make a spare extractor. Anything man made can be remade.

    I had taken out my 1888 Steyr Gewehr Rifle (1888 Commission Rifle). It was made in 1893. It is possible it may have seen action. The Gewehr 88 rifles really got around, they made untold numbers of them and sold them all over to everyone in Europe,...

    I remember wanting to get one years ago. But by the time I tried to order one, they were out of stock and sold out. They were sort of dirt cheap at the time too.

About Earlwb
I started hunting and using guns when I was about 10yoa. I have been doing it ever since, sometimes with a hiatus for a while though. I first got into reloading when I was 16yoa with a 7.65 Argentine Mauser and a 12 ga shotgun. I really enjoyed that too. I do have quite a few bullet molds that I have acquired over the years and I cast many bullets myself to be used.
