  1. we used to live in a country where the main concern now would be prayers for all involved and hope for a speedy recovery by the wounded. Today we live in a country filled with people clamoring for vengeance and blood. When Gabby Giffords was shot the left jumped all over the Palin crew for the surveyors marks used in some previous political effort to pick districts where some change could be won in the political scheme. They claimed it was somehow responsible for Gabby getting shot. I watched the posts from all sorts and wondered how these people could be lead so easily by the likes if Bill Mahr or whatever his name is. I used to believe that we lived by example, not by demands. My prayers for the girl have been sent as well as prayers for the man who must be wishing he had shot himself about now. Perhaps the world would be a better place if we spent more time on our own lives and less time criticizing the actions of others no matter how bad. Just my take on things, You all go on about your business and forget I was even here...
  2. I do not pay anything for a background check and my CCW does not preclude me from such. I ALWAYS get a damn delay it seems these days. I am considering the unique ID number. There is a place for it on the purchase form. As I understand it the nics does a check of you and determines who you may be close to in name and gives you am number that removes the delay due to a similar name. I don't really know for sure how it works.
  3. the Walker bullet mold this is a replica made in Italy like the gun, not too terribly accurate but not a bad version either of the original steel bullet mold sent along with the original Walker revolvers. This a gunbroker find at less than $24 shipped. The sprue cutter handle is off just a bit and the bullet shape is a bit more rounded than original "picket" bullet but overall I am very happy with the purchase. I hope to cast some bullets and report accuracy soon.
  4. just a lil fun with photo edit
  5. It is a great CCW gun, it is not quite as long as my forearm so I can hide it under my arm. Walking sitting and running are impossible but hey I can't sit either so.... ;)
  6. Evil Spock you are truly evil, thanks to you I have been listening to over ten different covers of Marty Robbins "Big Iron". I can blame only you... ;)
  7. Sam Colt made 1100 Walkers. 1000 for the army and 100 were given as gifts, Sam Walker was given two. It was supposed that he was also issued one and it was sent to Sam Colt when Walker was killed. It was one of Sam Colt's most prized possessions. He kept it in a display case and it remains in the Colt Museum today. The War Department had chosen to stay with a .58 smoothbore flintlock pistol instead of the five shot Paterson that could discharge ten rounds in 30 seconds, the dragoon pistol could fire two shots in 1.5 minutes. Without Samuel Walker and the Walker pistol we might not know the name of Sam Colt today. I spent a few hours today reading transcripts of letters by Sam Colt and Capt. Walker. There were many to and from the war dept as well. I felt I was there feeling the frustration Colt was having with the war dept. and the, in Colt's own words, "absurdity" of the inspectors with the war dept. Good reading.

  9. great song! My wife knew it word for word! She knows all those old country songs from bartending at the Moose lodge many years ago.
  10. many many moons ago I moved to Michigan from Indiana. They called me Indiana Dan up there, that got shortened to Indy. I like 45/70 guns, singles, levers, pistols, etc. Indy4570

  12. yeah i own em, I buy roadtrips, monster bucks and Primos big bulls series when I can. I am addicted to huntin vids!
  13. only bayonets? I have a few items made by Ontario that are on my wish list!
  14. No that was an 1858 Remington, the movie was Pale Rider. The Clint movie with the Walker is Outlaw Josey Wales. He sports a pair of Walkers worn in a belt up high as well as a few other pistols here and there. The pistol he dug from the ashes in the beginning of the film was an 1860 army I think. The Walker was also featured in True Grit. It was Mattie's father's gun, She shot Tom Chaney with it in the river. The Walker was also in Lonesome Dove. Gus McCrae carried a converted Walker. He smacked the bartender in San Antonio with it and was holding it when he was sitting in his underwear in the middle of the creek when Blue Duck rode up. A modified buntline Walker was featured in Bandidas. Sam Shepard had one when the bad guys showed up at his door. I think the littlest cowboy in the John Wayne movie "Cowboys" had a Walker as well.
  15. oh sure, rub it in, make us all salivate a little. I have been in a blind every morning for six days and not one antler have I seen and only one deer at all. I need to go find me a road kill I guess, ;)
