  1. Where I'm going is always a factor, but usually one of each. Revolver "malfunctions" are usually due to ammo issues and we know all the things that can go wrong in a semiauto. One on each side helps with situations where one arm might be pinned or grabbed. And a "new york reload" is quicker than changing magazines or employing a speedloader. Train with what you carry and be consistent in what you carry, though we all make allowances for changing seasons.
  2. I was wondering what "Auto Locked" means. Personally, I have no problem with anything of mine that is over 90 days old just being deleted and I'll relist anything I'm still trying to sell. Seems like that would get rid of a lot of the clutter and save people the frustration of seeing the same old stuff again and again.
  3. And I used to drive right through your area every week to and from working in Franklin. But, retirement is sweet and I don't much miss the time on the road. Should something prompt me to take a ride over that way I'll remember your kind words.
  4. Shows normal wear marks. Has 1 1/2 lb trigger, 5 round magazine. Lightweight, easy handling, super accurate little .22 rifle for the woods or the range. $975 OBO.
  5. Listing all the Dillon equipment I no longer use, mostly for loading pistol on a 550. For reference, Dillon's current prices on these individual pieces are; Caliber Conversion Kit (shellplate, powder funnel and buttons) - $70.00, Powder Measure - $120.00, Powder Die - $20.00, Toolhead - $33.00, Toolhead Stand - $29.00, Die Set - $125.00. The setups I'm listing vary in price, based on contents and age (millions of rounds loaded ... just kidding ... but some do have quite a few thousand rounds through them whereas others have only a few rounds). Message me for specifics and/or more photos on whichever ones you find interesting. Toolheads with stands, dies and most with shellplate and locator buttons, priced as shown, powder measure (without powder die) is $85.00. Check other classifieds for other items leftover after the January gunshow at Bristol this past weekend.
  6. Started with the Ruger "Target Lite", replaced the barrel with a Shaw 18" bull barrel, swapped out the trigger for a Kidd two stage ... won the first match it shot, which was also my first "automatic" match, has won more matches than it's lost ... best was a 50-4x, 50's with 1 to 4 x's are common ... outshoots both my CZ bolt guns ... wish I could figure out how to setup a factory class legal 10-22 that would shoot even close to that well ... probably got lucky and just happened to get a phenomenal barrel, but it's amazing
  7. Thanks, Greg. Bought it to start shooting the SASS cowboy matches. Then my back decided I wasn't going to do that sort of thing anymore. Hoping someone else can put them to good use.

  13. Take off barrel from Ruger 10/22 Target Lite, "Cold hammer-forged barrel tensioned in aluminum alloy barrel sleeve features a 1/2"-28 threaded muzzle and is fitted with a thread cap which can be removed to allow for the use of muzzle accessories." 16.13 inches in length. Fired a hundred or so rounds of standard velocity Eley Target. The division the rifle will compete in allowed any barrel, so I replaced it with a longer, all steel bull barrel. first $125 cash, Kingsport, Bristol, Johnson City area. No shipments.
  14. And I no longer have to drive most of the way across the state for work. So your piggy bank is safe, until you see one closer to you ! Funny how money pales in significance to that next gun we just have to have !
