  1. Surviving Beirut,Rhodesia, El Salvador, Mexico city earthquake,Hugo, Eight heart attacks and an ex wife :dirty:
  2. Those who couldn't make it missed the best shoot I've ever been to. 
  3. The only thing that truly cures knife addiction is lack of funds;)
  4. Close to the build I'm finishing Tuesday. What rigger are you using   Cheers,   TS
  5. Check with pawn shops. We are located in a building with one. We fix most of the guns they take in trade.   Cheers
  6. FYI Colt did not make a SS MK III. I've run into this with several auctions of nickel guns stating they were stainless. Regardless I have a two inch MK III and it shoots very good and balances in my hand well. Might go if the weather is good for a country drive.   cheers,   tad

    AR Lowers

    Talked to Royal Arms at the SHOT show and was informed they were moving to TN.
  8. Hi powers and 1911s  are my weaknesses in automatic pistols.They have stood the test of time, combat and environment.   Enjoy.
  9. Talk to Highpower. He can clue you in on my high powers. Back in the day if we were carrying 9mm anywhere in the world it was a BHP. Carried by more countries military and police forces than any other auto... FBI, HRT, USSF, SAS The alphabet goes on and on. The main modification is taking out the Magazine safety to improve the trigger pull. I used an Inglis with shoulder stock for an entry gun at one time. Still carry it often as a travel gun. You cannot go wrong with a BHP.   That's my story and I'm sticking to it.   Cheers,   TS
  10. still waiting for parts that I ordered 3 weeks ago. Not a long wait but longer than most of my orders from other companies. I do not find their prices to be that good most of the time. I get email specials from them every day. This is the first order I have given them. It was for a part a client wanted for a custom build. I have already finished his gun except for that one part.   I won't be ordering from them again.
  11. We just built a commander bobtail at the shop.and it fits my hand well enough I am considering doing the same thing to a couple of my full size guns as well.  I have all three sizes of Colt 1911s in .45/9mm. I only have one 38 super in Government size,    You should shoot the smaller frame 1911 to see if it works for you. I have gone back to a full size pistol for most of my carry. The New detective specials ride in an ankle holsters as a backup.   If you want a short frame 1911 you should buy the smaller frame pistol. It will be much more costly to convert a full size.   Cheers,   TS
  12. As a gunsmith I cannot recommend one. They are serviced by Taurus. In a year we have had five com in for repair and of those four  could not be fixed. They offered to replace them. They charged full retail for the replacements and kept the original guns. I would suggest you look for a good used older revolver. BTW thier warranty starts at manufacture date, not sales date. A couple of the guns were purchased within 3 months of them being brought to us but had manufacture dates more than a year before.   Sorry about that.   Cheers,   ts
  13. Go for a  type II receiver. I have two matched sets for future builds.  Most of the sales that are on now are for type I receivers. One is going to be in REM .260 for long range and suppressor use by a friend. He plans on using his 6.8 can. The other will probably be in .338 for heavier projectiles closer in. 
  14. I have an Inglis Highpower with correct shoulderstock. There are specific serial number ranges in the ATF book that delineate what is allowed with out being an sbr and what makes an sbr. I have the proper page xeroxed and in the stock that pertains to my pistol. As to original and repro stocks you will have to check the book. Direct copies of the original stocks are often allowed on curio and relic guns. All this info is dated several years ago when I got the gun so you will need to see the up to date regulations.   When I can set the money aside from buying parts to build other peoples guns I plan to get a repro Artillery stock and trammel mag holder for my Luger.   BTW the Stocked HP was my entry gun in another lifetime :cool:   Cheers,   ts
  15. Nice variation of the old Pager PAL itp holster. You still have the same problems with needing the right body shape/size and larger pants.
  16. I have quite a few of the gun mags from the '50s and '60s. One thing you notice when you get the cover pictures all together is the Hollywood stars that  are on many of the covers. A far cry from today when most of them are anti gun hippocrits.
  17. Not the first integrelly silenced production pistol. Maybe the first offered to the public. 
  18. A good dog is God's blessing to man. If dogs were not an asset Primitive people would not have domesticated them.
  19. Sam Hoster Complete Gunsmithing Located in Asherbranner's Pawn shop; Gallatin 
  20. I can highly recommend his builds. I have one of his  full production rifles. They are all metal with a billet lower to replace the plastic Bushmaster. I also have a M17s sitting in the safe to convert to .458 SOCOM when I can get a barrel made.
  21. Sam Hoster  in Gallatin he has been doing 1911 work since the '70s. Look on Oleg Volk's blog to see the pistol He did for his daughter.  Also we have been talked into participating in the next M'boro RK show you will be able to see a couple of his guns there on display.   I'm still of two minds about doing another show. It's been over a year since the last one but we will have several custom AR builds there for sale along with some of my personal guns for sale.

    ATT Crashes

    I was at the shop checking emails when the computer stopped working. So I built another rifle and finished customizing a pistol. The time was better spent and more relaxing.
  23. I've got one similar that fits a S&W K frame. Been out of production for a long time. So the concept has been in the market before. It is a two piece all aluminum that does not adjust and is much smaller.
  24. Sam Hoster does a lot of stock work. We are here 9-5 Mon, Thu, Fri. Tuesdays are blueing and parkerizing day we leave around 1-2.  Wen. is golf day.Guns can be dropped off with The pawn shop. Monday Saturday 9-5. Asherbranner's Range is open 9-4 Mon-Sat except when permit classes are going on.   308 South Water Ave. Gallatin, TN 37066   Phone 615-206-0075   Cheers,   Tad
  25. I work with Sam. You can always drop off and pick up from the pawnshop Monday through Saturday. Tuesday Afternoon Sam usually leaves around 2 to start blueing. Ill stay around to at least 3 Then start back home to Hermitaqge.   Cheers,   Tad
