  2. Ruger Blackhawk vs. Colt New Frontier

    Every devoted single action pistol man or woman owes it to their selves to own at least one Colt SAA or New Frontier and one Vaquero and an old time Blackhawk... Thanks for posting the great photo Bob... single action leroy the pistolerio...
  3. New cutter. Pro-Tech Strider PT.

    Congratulations David... They are, indeed, great little pocket knives... I love mine... leroy...
  4. Remember... Ya get the government ya deserve... The inner city dwellers of Nashville could care less if this less than stunning specimen of womanhood is a bit rambunctious and forgetful of her (...and others..) marriage vows... Lotsa them got the problem too... Just when i think the political class cant get any worse or trashier, it does... Bill Clinton says that "performance", not "character" is the only measure of public service... Welcome to Post-Modern Tennessee... leroy...
  5. Marshall County Kentucky School Shooting

    There ain't much ta add to what has already been said... This is, indeed, a sad occurrence... It points out the general depravity of man and our tendency to do monstrous things to our brothers n sisters... It transcends all age groups, socio-economic groups, and ethnicities... There are lotsa voices saying lotsa bad things in our culture, and there always have been... Those voices have an effect on our society; some more than others... The great Friedrich Nietzsche said:.... "...If God be dead, all things are permissible..."... The idea; "No Law Giver, no laws to break"... You are the law... If you are the law, anything goes... The great Alistare Crowley said:... "... Do what you will; deny yourself nothing..."... If you are number one; by definition, everybody else is at least number 2... These beliefs can lead to some devastating results... The point of this ramble... Be mindful of what your children (...and you...) choose to believe... Talk with them... Most of all, know what you and they believe... Belief systems have consequences... When those beliefs are acted on; the consequences can be devastating... sad leroy...

    sub and all... We too, are afflicted with "single six" fever; no matter the flavor; from old to brand new... There is no better pistola to teach single action handling and point shooting with than the old single sixes... Ninety percent the size of a great Colt SAA and just about the same weight and balance... They are a great thing.... We have several; from old to new... My current favorite is a single six 32HR Vaquero 4 3/4 barrel... It's truly a work of art and a thing of beauty... I say:... "... Collect em all, Brother..."... Go for it, ya wont be dissapointed... single six leroy... The small frame curmudgeon...
  7. Marshall County Kentucky School Shooting

    Mike and David... It is, indeed, sad... I also have in-law kinfolk from up there and i spent quite a bit of time both visitin and workin in the Paducah area... As i recall, this is the second round of shootings like this... There was one at Heath High School just west of Paducah several years ago... There are those who are pretty wise that think that the "kids shooting kids" thing is linked to Ritalin usage in children to treat ADHD... I think there is somethin to this theory... The problem with the Ritalin thing is that it's been endorsed and prescribed so long that it will be almost impossible to change, no matter the truth of the matter... No matter the cause, this is, indeed, a genuine tragedy... As to the collecting of guns and tightening of gun laws in Kentucky... It's ludacris on it's face... This area of kentucky is beautiful, rural, and full of hunters and shooters... More than that, it's on the Great Mississippi Flyway... Guns in every house and people that know how to use 'em... I think Giffords and that clown that leads her around need to make a trip to Western Kentucky and do a "Round em up... Give em up" rally... leroy

  10. Some Interesting Crime Stats

    Pop... Thanks for posting this great article... Interestin stuff, indeed... I think this is a very interesting and insightful thought.... This is the "elephant in the room" that no one wants ta talk about; as it smacks of all the forbidden issues; poor neighborhoods, dope, gangs, hooliganism, tribalism, and all the other things that are forbidden today... There are, indeed, bad neighborhoods where there are bad people... Like Pop says, "... If ya don't have to go ther, don't go..."... Excellent advice, indeed... Thanks for posting this insightful info... leroy...
  11. Queen Cutlery closes

    Mac hit the 64 bazillion dollar question here.... My guess is that it's small and gettin smaller as us old curmudgeons go over "The Sunset Hill"... There are lotsa folks out there that aint ever seen a slipjoint knife, i think... I generally keep a slip joint and a "tacticool" knife in my pocket at all times, but everybody aint like me... sad leroy...
  12. Queen Cutlery closes

    Hate ta see this... My guess is that they are done... Great Eastern Cutlery finished Queen in the high end slipjoint market, and Case finished em on the sensibly priced knife market... Here's hopin they survive, but i aint holdin my breath... slipjoint leroy the hawkbill curmudgeon...
  13. Walked away from this.............

    Bob.... RE: This.... I've burned powder by the pound thru a bicentennial 4 5/8 45 colt with the aluminum frame; along with an equally ancient 4 5/8 41 mag... Both with "hotrod loads" ya cant find in reloading manuals today... Both these fine old pistolas are still in tact today, after thousands of rounds down the pipe... There is nothin wrong with the "Alcoa" grip frames on these old pistolas... They are a bit lighter than the steel grip frames of today... They make the best "woods carry booger repellent" pistolas ever; including the great glocks... I know, as i carried one or the other of these oldtimers most every time i went shootin or walkin around... As i remember it; the wimpy cowboy action shooters clamored for the steel grip frames as a help in followup wimpy shots with wimpy loads... The bottom line; there is no finer pistola than the old ruger blackhawks... That from a curmudgeon that owns both blackhawks and colts sa's of both flavors... Your mileage, proclivities, and tastes may vary... leroy...
  14. Walked away from this.............

    Brothers n Sisters.... If you are a Ruger single action aficionado, this is a great deal... There were very few "Three Screw" 45 Colts of any flavor... Most of em were "New Models"... The last one i saw several years ago, i bought... It was north of $500 as i remember... These are great pistolas.... 45 leroy...
  15. Springfield announces new SIG...

    Neat little pistola... Remember the words of Shakespere:.... "... Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery..."... Thank you Colt for the little mustang and thank you Sig for makin it a bit better... HEHEHE... All this from a curmudgeon with two 238's... 380 leroy...
