I sold him a uberti 1866 SRC in 22 long rifle.....he seemed to really like it... wonder of he still has it?

I thought I only needed my uberti 1873 in 22 WMR...but finally broke down and got another 66 also.

I'm curious if he has a 357 B&D lever and/or a 30/357?
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

250 Savage: The Original short action, compact, high velocity cartridge.

Yes. He still has the rifle and keeps it near the door where he can grab it quick if needed.

He has a 30/357 handgun, not a levergun. He makes dies for the 30/357 ... or did for himself anyway.

It appears that he will not shoot an ugly gun. Those are some good looking guns.

This is what I call a "post of substance". I remember the stories Paco wrote about the .219 Zipper.....a cartridge near impossible to find in a production model. Paco had a lot of old cool leverguns.....many of which were stolen with others being burned up in a car fire.

I've learned a lot from Paco's writings and why this post only has 8 responses is beyond my imagination. This is the guy who started it all! Gave us a place to hang out.....then someone makes a post on "what kind of gasoline do you put in your sedan?" and it will get 200 responses. :D the irony of it all.

Cool guns Paco and thanks Jim for taking the time to show us what the master has.------6

Sixgun, I have a folder of his stories and loads from I first got on the old forum.

I have most of his writings and refer to them often.
Most recently the 375 Winchester.

Thank you, Paco.

JimT i surely admire the wood on that 92 in 44 mag :mrgreen: Is that a factory extra, or did Paco add that nice wood? Never seen a 92 dressed up so nice.

Thanks. If I had one that fancy, I believe I'd have to paint my truck to match it!
