Re: See ya fellers

I first came here years ago when researching a load for my .45-120 Sharps and found a post written by KirkD. Stuck around because I was so impressed by not only the knowledge here, but the brotherhood. I'm hoping we don't lose that. We all need to remember that we are, unfortunately, part of a dyin...

Re: New Leveraction Yellow Boy, 45 Colt

When I bought the Yellow boy I thought those carbine sights were simple and and easy to use but in woodland and on dull days ( more common in the UK) I struggled with them, the gun was well made and a lot of fun although a bit heavy in .22 magnum but It shot tighter groups than my 9422M when the sun...

My old eyes just weren't sharp enough to get a good sight picture unless it was a bright sunny day, the carbine however was very accurate on such days. I could have put a tang sight on it but I trad...

We don't have Wal-Mart stores in the UK and if we did they wouldn't be selling firearms and ammo. The smaller gun shops however are often staffed by completely ignorant guys who think they know it all. I hear all sorts of rubbish advice given to novice shooters.... :(
