The Game Commences.

For the usual fee plus expenses. The 1964.5 Mustang has started. Upper cowl removed and the lower seems to be in much better shape than I thought it would be.  That is great in and of itself. The cowls are the most problematic things on these cars.

No "Oh S&#t" moments yet. Car is in remarkably good shape. Hell. It looks better than I do right now!

Winchester Model 94's

In a previous post I misidentified a Winchester Model 94 as a Model 9422. I felt bad. So I immersed myself in these lever guns and Mr. Curmudgeon presented me with one for "Cleaning" this past weekend. 

Great rifles even if post '64's.

AAR Report- The .32 S&W M&P

Oh, and now one of these is up for sale! 

The .32 Smith and Wesson Long Military & Police is a double action revolver on the square butt K frame with five screws. This one is one of 4,813 manufactured c. 1948-1950.

I took it to the range today after a light cleaning. Both double action and single action shots at 7 & 10 yards.

A great revolver even if it does rotate the wrong way =) .

I wish it could talk!

Nice Trigger!

Everyone that shot my M1 Garand said that at the Blogshoot last weekend. While I can say "I did that myself" that is technically true but the Instructors at the CMP watched everything and tested everything we did during that 3 day class. They had the tools and knowledge to insure you left with a great M1. 

Here is a link to the first post on that class. You want a Garand? Better hurry.

Overheard at Blogshoot...

"I have the biggest balls here." I cannot argue with that. They are made of lead to boot. Here is my friend Nancy showing everyone how to kick it old school.

After years of watching her load and fire this thing I have noted it is the same thing every time. Same stance, same hold, same loading procedure. Lessons for modern things as well.

It was worth the effort!

I have to say that Murph's Blog shoot was a resounding success! 

Good to see friends and, well, shoot stuff! Thanks Murph.

Oh Murph. The Car did fine. I know you were worried about it =)
