Thanks Jay and Ron, i`m still kickin.
Going to park the van, rock hit the wind shield and it looks like a spider web and the tires are about worn out plus the brake line and i think i`m all done fixing things where i have to lay down .
Normas mother is getting a newer car so she is giving us her old one which is a pretty nice car a Dodge Intrepid so we will drive it for the winter anyway. :)
Feeling a little better thanks for the prayers guys.

Well if that's the case, you better get to a doc ASAP!
Don't mess with stuff like that, my friend.

What Jay said! Don't fool around with stuff like that. I put off going to the Doc and it almost killed me.

We need you around to fend off the Hostiles, if they get past you, they'll be all the way to Kentucky before those southern boys can beat them back!

Checking in from a day of yard work and loading ammo for tomorrow's long range benchrest match......what's going on with you Pitchy...64 ain't exactly old. 85 is old.....get to the doctor .....it's probably something small like high blood pressure....and SMALL things develop into BIG things......in terms that a mechanical guy like you can understand ....its the same as losing oil in a $10,000 Hemi.....fix the oil leak and there's plenty more miles left.-----6

Dang! 6 pages...Leverguns record......and Pitchy, YOU made it happen. :D

Now we all know that Pitchy is OSS. Look at that beard!
I'd say he is making contact with some underground forces after parachuting in behind the lines.
Obviously a highly classified mission. :D
Maybe putting out beacons for a bombing raid..... a high level assasination?.....
It could be anything with this American Hero! :D
On to victory Pitchy! :D

We went to them, in Virginia. I so hate traveling. The last night we stayed at a motel cause it was close to the airport. About 2am, we woke to a woman screaming bloody murder. She went running by the room still screaming. A woman came out and asked if she was ok. She said she was being beaten and he was coming.
Didn't hear any more after that.
Now, some may call me a loser for not helping, but here are the thoughts that went through my mind....
First, I'm unarmed, like a good subject. :x
My wife is there.
Is it a ruse to get into someone's room?
Is the male "agressor" armed?
How many of them are there?

While I applaud the woman wanting to help, she was either armed or very stupid.
It's a shame this is what our society has become.
The rest of the time we stayed at my son's. I was plenty armed then. :D
Next month they are coming to our place for 2 weeks.
Much better. :D

You did right young man! Not knowing all of the particulars is a disaster for you getting killed. As we all know, domestic fights are the most emotional and unless you could have made a definite decision, it's best to just look and see how it unfolds before you jump in.

Besides, if you bought the farm I'd only have one, maybe two friends left here on Leverguns. Stay good buddy. I'm hitting the sack...it's now 2:03 ----6

Do we hear 7 pages? I have 6 pages,...6 pages,...6 pages...will someone's give me 7. :D

Thank's bro. It felt wrong not helping, but there were too many red flags flying.

Ole Six has too many cool guns I haven't got yet. :D

A little i`ve learned about tightening up a loose gas cylinder, seems a lot of people peen using the ball end of a ball peen hammer the splines in the barrel slightly to tighten things up.
I also read which i think might work quite well is to remove the front sight and drill and tap a hole in the area above the spline and put two set screws in it.
Tightening the set screw would not only tighten it up but also would pull up on the tube making a better seal around the gas port.
I have a little play in mine and am considering the set screw option along with a light peen.
Thoughts? :)

I'm not sure how much accuracy is affected in the real world. If you aren't shooting matches, with match ammo, and just shoot for enjoyment.
I think the M1, like the M14 stays tighter, longer, if you don't disassemble it too often.
I think if it was me, I'd go the peening route first. I would try and not permanently alter anything. The parts supply isn't what it once was for our grand old rifle.

I agree with ya about taking the gas cylinder off to much, mine is pretty tight but has some side movement of the sight.
I`m sure it would be just fine for as long as i live but i thought a discussion about it would be interesting.
A light peen would probably be the best method. :)

OK...just rolled outta bed.......11:45.....whew! That's early!

Seen Pitchy's dilemma. I don't like to ball peen anything except maybe front sight dovetails. Just stick a thin o ring in there somewhere.----6

O ring won`t help with this issue Six, slight peen seems to be a common practice.
I`ll probably leave mine as is . :)

The peen process isn`t done with a sharp punch, the ball end of a ball peen hammer is laid between the splines and tapped on the other end with a hammer.
The slight curve of the ball slightly swedges the edge in thus tightening it up, nothing extreme.

Thanks, Lenn. :D

Six,
Why, Jim Beam Black, of course! :D
Oh yeah, I forgot to take that off the wall before taking the pic. That's the older of my 2 half mag 38-55's.
Don't sweat it buddy. You'd be sadly disappointed here. I ain't got nothin' that'd hold a candle to your stuff.
It's camera tricks. :D
You don't want some smelly old buffalo coat anyhow. :D

So I'm wondering if Pitchy has been 'called up' to go defend our southern "border" ? This hord is getting bigger by the minute and Trumpster needs some help!
Six can go with his BAR, I'll bring my ( gasp) AR10 !

I'll tell you what's happening down there.......all of the brown people are signing up for migration to Minnesota and I hear they all want to go where there's nothing but woods and lakes and they want a neighbor who knows how to survive by himself and can help them with cutting wood, the proper way to drink rum and Coke, make steam engines and ride Harley's and of course, be able to patrol their tent cities. You know anyone up your way like that? :D

Well, I finished splitting wood....I still have some more but that can wait. This pile will get me through the winter....probably 1/4 of what Pitchy needs and 1/100 of what that guy who lives in the frozen tundra up there in Maine.----6

I took the M1-A out for some fresh air today. Nice day...about 65 and all sunshine.

Ha.....Pitchy......I see these posts are bringing out some laughter in you. Hey man, kick back and enjoy the little things in life......have a rum and Coke and to hell with the rest of the world.......

It's the little things in life that brought me out of a 18 month slump...I figure that all I need is a few good rifles, mom, ammo and a mess of dogs...to hell with these migrants....if they tread on me they are gonna catch some hot 150's going 2800.----6

Ooh...the shorts...how do you like my "new look"? Mom is laughing like hell.....I'm wearing long underwear with a pair of designer shorts over top with military boots and a flannel shirt. I even went to the post office like that today and those liberals made sure they kept at least 3 feet away from me....just the way I like it.---6

You'd fit right in up here, Jack. That's what people wear to a fancy night on the town. Well, when the weather cools off!
Nice wood pile, by the way. And yeah, that'd be a little lean up here.
