  1. The green followed by yellow put off the brightest light. I keep about a half dozen 4 inch green's in the truck at all times. Plenty of light to change a tire at night by and unlike a  flashlight no dead battery's. I also buy them in bulk for my parents. Since they live in an area where the power goes out alot. They can put them anywhere and not have to worry about a fire hazzard by leaving a light in the bathroom and such.
  2. Have to be made before 1988 for no safety. Marlin 39's seem to hold there value pretty well if it's in nice shape and you don't mind the crossbolt safety I would say low end 350 to as much as 500 or so. Really depends on how much you want it.
  3. I am a carry over from the old car board. David knew I was into guns and invited me not long after the board was stood up. I read alot more than I post as you can tell from my join date and present post count. Member Since 09 Jul 2007  
  4. Depends on what you want to do with a .22 personally I have just never gotten into the whole tricked out 10/22 thing. But if you want a gun that is like a lego set of .22's then the 10/22 is your gun. You can buy just about anything under the sun for one. I tend to keep everything I have simple so it just never appealed to me. And stock there are several .22 rifles out there that will outshoot a 10/22 for less money.
  5. A good .22 rifle thats overlooked alot is the Marlin model 60. I bought one used many years ago and could not even guess how many rounds have been through it and it still runs like a top. New they run int the 150-160 range and used are normally a bargin I have seen then less than 100 bucks. Henry lever actions are also nice guns for the money new they can be had less than 200 new. Your hard pressed to wear out a well built .22 rifle. I would say your shotgun pick is not bad. Well built gun at an attractive price. For a handgun I would not overlook used trade in guns. Sometimes you can get a very nice gun that has been shot very little but has alot of finish wear for a excellent price.   Keep in mind that with the way people are buying AR's and AK's at the moment the used gun selection in most stores is running over with less tatical options. And there are some excellent deals to be had on hunting and less sexy types of guns. Nice lever actions and bolt actions have been traded in so people can afford those black guns.
  6.     Are the underbarrels marked with proof markings? If there are no proof marks it was made before 1893 if it has the marks after that time. 1893 was when germany started requireing the proofs. 38/55 and 12 Gauge is a good combo It would be worth having someone look it over for value but I don't think it's going to bring huge money. Other than guns with alot of engraving they all seem to settle in the 1000-3000 dollar range. But it is a cool old gun and will always start a conversation.
  7. Depends alot on the rifle caliber and 12 or 10 gauge if it's one of the more popular rifle rounds like 45/70 it will be a little more desirable. If it's one of the more uncommon rifles then it's a mixed bag as to value. Look under the forearm and see if it has any proof marks under the barrels. I collect side by side doubles but only have one drilling in 10 gauge over 45/70 made by sauer and sons. Remember Daly is only the importer of the gun it's probably from looking at the pictures a sauer and sons if I just had to guess. But the proof marks will help identify it. I woud not even hazard a guess on value because it's a limited collector market for something like this. You would be better off finding a appraiser that is versed in shotguns.
  8.   You are talking about a Lewis lead remover. It's a good tool to have if you shoot alot of cast bullets.   http://www.brownells.com/gun-cleaning-chemicals/patches-mops/lead-remover/lewis-lead-remover-prod21587.aspx
  9. I think Yeager is getting exactly what he wanted out of this video. People are talking about him and that seems to be important to him. He's nothing new a lot of people over the years have made a job out of being controversial in the training arena. And after he fades out there will be others to take his place. And I will give it to him the internet tough guy and the I’m a dangerous man attitude I’m sure sells a lot of training and video views.
  10. Saw this on one of my cowboy sites and thought I would post it here.   Tuesday, December 11, 2012 Butte, Montana, USA Bob Munden Has Died Bob Munden, known perhaps equally as a fierce Fast-Draw competitor who was recognized by Guinness World Records as The Fastest Man with a Gun Who Ever Lived, as an exhibition shooter of the highest order with all kinds of firearms; an entertainer as well as a master gun smith who developed groundbreaking methods of customizing to...perfection the beloved .45 caliber single action revolver and other guns, died Monday of heart failure. Munden’s wife and performance partner Becky said Tuesday she was driving home with Bob after treatment at a Missoula hospital for what doctors described as a mild heart attack. At some point between Missoula and their home of Butte, Bob mentioned he was experiencing chest pains, told Becky to keep on driving, and died. The 70-year-old shooting sports superstar was pronounced dead upon arrival at St. James Heathcare in Butte. Born February 8, 1942 in Kansas City, Mo, Bob began his professional shooting career at age 11 in Big Bear Lake, Calif. While still in high school, Bob placed 2nd in a competition known as the Leatherslap. After years of competing in Fast Draw, Bob and Becky performed together beginning in 1968, emphasizing the importance of gun safety when they went on tour in 1969 for the National School Assembly Program. Depending on the venue, Bob and Becky continued to perform together shooting blanks or with live ammunition across the United States, in New Zealand and London, England. As recently as 2011 the Mundens put on their live-ammunition exhibition at locations in California and Kansas. Over the years Bob, often with Becky who is also a champion shooter, appeared on many television shows, most famously American Shooter, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Shooting USA, and Shooting USA’s Impossible Shots. Munden can be found all over YouTube and appears in entertaining and instructional DVDs including Bob Munden: Outrageous Shooting and Bob Munden: The Collector’s Edition. At age 68 Munden appeared on Stan Lee's Superhumans on the History Channel. The episode shows a scientist reporting that Munden’s hand withstands 10 Gs of force when he draws and fires his gun from the holster. Viewers learn that as a comparison, jet pilots are trained to withstand 9 Gs, and that Bob is “faster than a rattlesnake.” In a demo during the same show, Munden draws and shoots two balloons six feet apart with two shots that sound virtually like one. Just eight weeks ago today, at the Butte Gun Club range for Midland Radio Corporation, Munden did exhibition shooting with a .45 caliber single action and Colt 1911 semi-automatic pistol. Bob Munden & Midland XTC High Definition Action Camera – YouTube Registered as members #118 and #119 respectively, Bob and Becky entertained at the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) End of Trail World Championships of Cowboy Action Shooting 30 times with what Becky proudly said was the most complex presentation ever offered at an exhibition shooting show. She added that Bob was Cowboy Action Shooting’s first gunsmith. Becky said, “We had an incredible, memorable life together.” She also said that of all the inarguably amazing shots Bob achieved during his lifetime of speed shooting, precision shooting and showmanship with handguns, rifles and shotguns; his opening a safety pin, hitting a target 600 yards away, throwing a knife with a bullet and others all accomplished with handguns and practiced mostly in his imagination rather than at the range, Bob was definite that splitting a playing card in he threw into the air was most difficult. Bob is survived by his wife Becky, his daughters Natalie and Mitzi; grandson Levi, granddaughter Kaycee, his mother; three brothers and a sister; nieces, nephews, friends and millions of fans. According to Bob’s wishes his remains will be cremated. A memorial and celebration of life is to be scheduled during warmer weather in 2013. A small event for local neighbors and friends will take place in Butte in the near future. Information about both events will be posted at bobmunden.com and the official fan page. Thanks to all you wonderful fans. Bob loved you and worked for you. -- The Munden Family
  11. I have a Beretta Storm in 9mm takes the 92 mags. I like it alot had it several years with no problems. Pretty accurate gun and I like the build quality.
  12. [quote name='Tennjed' timestamp='1354049009' post='851521'] Thanks guys. It is interesting about the differences in the 357 and 45. I reload for both. I was thinking the 45 would have more power, but now I may reconsider the 357 [/quote] If you reload for both your in a good position. I have several carbines in .357 Mag myself but it's just the caliber I happen to be a big fan of. There are alot of loads out there that mimic a 30/30 pretty well. And having the ability to throw .38 in the mix it becomes a very versitile platform.
  13. Personally I would not go beyond a 20 inch barrel in a pistol caliber lever gun. Your not going to really gain anything velocity wise, the sight radius will be a little better but the shorter barrel is going to be much handier. Since you already load for 45 it would be a fine rifle for you. Many deer sized game have been taken with both the .357 Mag and .45 Long Colt so as long as you use good judgement in your distances I see no problem at all. As for using it as a house gun/general purpose gun I don't see any problem at all with the .45 it's a proven round and since you handload you can tailor ammo to what you want to do. Get a good cowboy action load and it will be running about 800 fps with a very mild recoil that makes it alot of fun to just plink with.
  14. [quote name='TankerHC' timestamp='1353040318' post='846375'] Mine too. At nearly a buck fifty a round the thing costs more to shoot than .50 AE. [/quote] But remember it will also shoot .45 Long Colt ammo just as well. I am a big fan of the .454 its a great hunting round I have taken many hogs with mine over the years.
