Better baseball player, but then again, Laurence Olivier was shit at center field so it all works out..

It did have that wide open part but as you cocked and brought it back it would fire the trigger. I had a toy model of it in plastic, so I remember how it worked. With this model it doesn't look like the trigger would be engaged.

thought you and the Mrs would wake up to a floor full of empty wine bottles and a house littered with Bree wrappers.. Did ya get a bit "twisted" and put on Jefferson airplane..

Product liability issues with the lever activating the trigger.. Thinking it could be done but less than a good idea.. Every time you'd chamber a round you'd fire that puppy off.. Nope probabley not going to happen..

anyone had been here. And it's "Brie" and we didn't have any. The guests were all from the office where my wife works, and where I worked for nearly 30 years, so it was nice to see some old friends who are still jealous that I got to retire and they can't. The rules changed 8 months after I was hired and most folks are on the new, stricter system. I truly AM sorry for those suckers, but not enough to keep on working after this golden opportunity presented itself. I just got lucky. It took me decades to even understand what had actually happened.

Conners was the lone survivor in the Battle of Bitter Creek
in the Civil War. The Gen went crazy and Conners (McCord)
was court martialed as a coward but never gave the Gen up

Remember that deal with the broken and sharpened sword.. Look at those two names Chuck played.. Wonder if he ever got confused..

Mike happy for ya that you could see the old group again.. know what you mean about being "grandfathered" in.. I had much the same sittuation, and a blessing for us.

Oddly enough in my "prior" life style being able to spell brie would have been a bit of a problem so guessing i blocked that from my near perfect memory.. Except i should have gotten the song Vaq reminded me of by old Pat.. that must have come out one of the years i was doing some heavy "roots"

Rossi Ranch Hand

This is Rossi's take-off on the cut down Winchester 1892 used by Steve McQueen in "Wanted: Dead or Alive" from the 1950's.
I suppose it has some use other than to attract attention, but I'm damned if I know what it is.

He was a lifetime smoker. I know that he is listed as being bisexual on some rumor sites, but there is no credible evidence of that. I wouldn't take that too seriously.

Kept it wrapped in a poncho i used for a ground cloth and tied across the forks over front fender.. Cheap little piece someone had used as a club, or some how had busted the stock, the only simple solution was to cut both stock and bbl.. came out ok,

Spent more time worrying about being stopped for some bogus charge and then facing charges for the weapon so only did it on long runs, and happy when one of the guys wanted to buy it..

Chopped shotguns

like those described by Lucky & Greg used to be fairly common in north Texas in the 1950's. All I ever saw were single shots, though, never a double. I think that the first to use them down there were motorcycle guys, but then they spread to other groups. Every Mexican/latino/chicano gang had at least 2, it seemed like. I tried firing one in 12 gauge once (& once only) - damn near tore my hand off. I think I was about 15 at the time, and pretty goofy.

as opposed to extracter.. so you'd break the action and the empty would hit ya in the face if you didn't watch it.. (not that this ever happened to me of course) .. Bob's right i did it cause i had seen so many others.. I cut mine so short it was just longer than the forks (horizontal) and by the time i had the poncho over it thier really was no reason to imagine it as anything but a ground cloth..tied of on the front fender it worked fine.. and didn't affect engine air flow (i had worried about that) so after i got rid of it, i continued to keep the poncho on the fender..

My cousin bought a brand new 1962 Jaguar XK-E in England which he kept in mint condition which he sold in 1972 for $1500 so he could buy a Mercury Cougar. (Shaking head sadly)

They started out selling parts for the motor company then mail order custom stuff.. one of the first... right up there with S&S.. then opened thier museum in Anamosa.

If you ever got thier catalog you remember it opened with a pic of all thier employees so when you called for an order or questions you knew who you were talking to...good people, always wanted to go the the museum

in 1966 i bought my first car.. You guys know the whole "Christian" thing.. This is honest to God..1959 XK-150 Roadster.. Now it gets WORSE.. Only reason i was allowed to buy it was my brother was back from first tour of Nam (i had worked construction over summer break so my money, but Dads house) and convinced Pop what a buy it was.. and it was.. paid 1200 for it from a young newspaper editor who had got the wife knocked up and HAD to sell.. Remember it was 6-7 years old...

OK it was an automatic.. borg warner.. and after i got back from boot camp i sold it for 1500, cause i wanted a 4 spd mustang.. STUPID SHIT!!

This thing was beyond perfect.. Red...last of the 3.4's, wires...wood and leather and they only made like 500 of the roadster autos in all the 150 series.. and maybe half were imported L drive..

STUPID.. Oh yeah...then thiers the drawer full of WWII 1911's .. had every company but one that mfg them and a bunch.. thought when i had doubled my money I'd be wise to sell them..This was in 88... they are now worth maybe 10 times that

is not at all uncommon, all the old Winne model 1873, 1892, 1894 etc. were chambered that way. In the old west the cowboys liked to have to only carry one type of ammo that would work in both rifle and pistol.

With a 12 inch barrel it has to be a pistol, and thats what Rossi called it in th NRAs "Riflemans" magazine.Hell of a pistol huh.

is because it is chambered in pistol cartridges.it is a rifle action but chambered in pistol rounds only making it a long barreled pistol.

They need to chamber it in 500 S&W. I always thought that would be a great lever action. Havnt seen one to date though
