I won't keep you in suspense any longer. I competed in Cowboy Action Shooting. Best time you can have with your clothes on. Hope I have not bored you or ran you off. At 67, stiff bones, retired from Cowboy you need to show your accumulation of about eight years.
Neat sight. Hope you don't mind if'n I pull up a chair and stay a spell. I like sourmash also.
Later.

An old retired shooter is gonna brag.
I appreciate the humility, but I'm reminded of the saying that "It ain't bragging if you can do it" . . .or in this case, if you got 'em.

Thumbs up

I couldn't help but think of all the memories that go with all that equipment.
My hat is off to you, Sir.
Thanks for insight!

Red Cent, you must have a small fortune tied up in 73s.
Taylors & Co. is about 20 min. from where I work and I'm really wantin one of those 73s bad.




Among others.

Copen,
There is a young good looking lady that works for Taylors and is a shooter. Her husband is an internationally known cowboy gunsmith. A number of months back, I used to travel parts of the US with Lena Oakey and Cody Conagher (aka Linda and Don Jones). New Mexico, Florida, Maryland and a lot of states in between. Cody and Leena live north of you just off I-81 in WV.
All of my weapons were sent to Cody before I used them. Those 3 screw Rugers above were owned by Cody.
If anyone wants the slickest cowboy gun around send it to Cody. Pistols, including your Colts, rifles, and shotguns. http://www.codyscowboyshop.com/
Point: Taylor's sells a pistol called the "Smoke Wagon". Cody is the gunsmith that puts the finishing touches on these fine pistols.
On the subject of 73s, If you or anyone who is thinking of buying one, I would highly suggest that you go to your local cowboy club. Ask who has the slickest 73 around. Ask to work the action. I cannot explain the feel of a super slicked up and short stroked 73. I know they are expensive but they are heads above any 92 or 94. By the way, the best 92 gunsmith I know is Nate Kiowa Jones.http://www.stevesgunz.com/
Copen, call Taylor's and ask for Linda. Tell her Red Cent told you to ask if she would bring her rifle to work one day so you could see and work the action. This WILL NOT be a burden. She will love it. Seriously!! Or let me know and I will do it.

This may be redundant, but have you guys seen this?

Thanks Red Cent, good info to know. I work in Winchester but live just west of Augusta WV. Been through Berkely Springs a few times if thats where Don and Linda live. Once when I was at Taylors the gunsmith at that time showed me one of their 92s that he had slicked up. I was truely amazed but then I'm used to Win. 94s and Marlin 336s. Don't know if that was Don or not. Real nice guy and eager to answer any and all questions.
I'll probably end up with a 73 sooner or later when I can decide between a 357 or 45.
Thanks again.

Busmaster007,
You are so right. I have traveled from Maryland to Florida to New Mexico for regional, national, or world championships. I have attended annual or regional matches at all the states from Maryland to Florida. I attended local monthly matches every Saturday and Sunday for about seven years. Great wife.
6.0 diesel van, 16' trailer, and the Fluffymobile.

Miss backing up the cars in the parking lot at a little motel in Berkeley Springs, WV and building a fire (special container). Watching the badges walking across the street smiling and reminding us "Remember folks, paper cups". We had tacos made on the grill and Bananas Foster for dessert. Seriously.
Miss leaving Sumner, SC and driving to Charleston, SC to have a good time at Hyman's Seafood. We always went dressed cowboy. Chinks, spurs (with jinglebobs), hat, and all the rest. One year we went to an upstairs bar and walked into a duplicate of "Coyote Ugly". Easy, Easy on the eyes.
Miss setting around the fire shooting some bulls and sipping some sour mash.
Miss setting at the local slaughterhouse and sinking a tooth into an 1 1/2" prime rib cooked medium rare and very lightly dipped in creamy horse radish.
Miss going to Rachel's in Orlando. Whuff! Awesome night. Baked escargot, filet foster, beautiful women.
Miss wondering if we would ever get through Tennessee on I-40.

The van usually contained three to six cowboys/cowgirls. The golf cart gun rack holds 21 long guns.
Thats another amazing thing. The golf cart is an old Club car 36 volt. We estimated we put about 900 pounds on the cart when we fill it up. 'Course the other six walk or take turns.
21 long guns
ammo and gun stuff
large cooler on front foot rack
4 people

How much does it cost to be reincarnated?

Hey Red Cent. Fantastic post. I had a Marlin 30-30 in the early nineties and a 30 carbine Ruger pistol.

I just bought a three-screw Ruger 30 carbine revolver at a gun show. I called Ruger and gave them the serial number. She said it was made in Apr 1970. The gun has no transfer-bar and has slight fading to some of the blueing. What is your expert opinion on getting her reblued, or is the slight worn look better??? Thanks.

Kyle F.,
In my "best" opinion, the restoration would not be worth it. It would be a "just because I want to".
My 7 1/2" 3-screw Blackhawk is worth maybe $500.00 if that. I cannot justify another $100.00 plus in the pistol. Your 30 cal may be worth more. If you roam GunBroker, GunsAmerica, and others as I do, you find such a disparity in price with these Rugers, it is difficult to lock in a value.
I would let it be.
Mine has a trigger that is superb. At cowboy long range pistol side matches, I load the old hogleg with my 44 Special handload. Off sandbags, I have shot 4 1/2" groups at 100 yards.

Thanks, Red Cent. It's a great gun, shoots good. Oh, yeah. As I expected from my first 30 carbine, it is LOUD, just the way I remembered it.

Thank you, again.
