Have a good one GotC Just waiting for my wife to get off the phone. I know exactly what you mean. I don't own a semi anything except a ruger 10/22 for plinking and squirrels. Most nights I am up a bit later but had a rally at the state house today so started up earlier

Madcratebuilder, I'vd heard of Mr. W.L Ormsby or somebody like that. Read a lot about him on one of these blackpowder threads here a couple of years or so ago. He was a very interesting man..

Walker 944,
welcome to a site that is so full of knowledge and it is such a blessing to have friends that will share their hearts with others that have less experience and not be-little them. The men here are a cut above and I am proud to be a part of them.
Preacher.......

Brotherlloyd, you may not feel that way after you'vd been around us for a little while!! Folks tell me I'm a little squirrely myself. (I think it may go back to being raised in Alabama and eating all those squirrel dumplings when I was growing up. they say you are what you eat)....

Squirrel dumplings? That isn't what they call squirrel testicles down there, is it? I'd imagine you'd either have to have a whole lot of squirrels to keep from being hungry or you are thin as a twig.

Good evn. gentlemen, I trust all is well... any luck turkey hunting anyone? I will miss this spring season. I'm in Quintana-Roo, Mexico By Belize as a Preacher/Missionary Dia Del Nino Day of the child or childrens day as we would say it. Its funny how life works out, I never wanted to be a christian cause they were some of the meanest people i ever met. But the death of a loved one changed that when I was 45. I always thought i would be a mercenary not a missionary. I was a paratrooper - Special Forces. Anyway sure would like to here about the turkey hunts...sure missing home, God Bless Preacher.....

Afternoon Brotherlloyd. Hope you're doing fine. Don't have many turkey's around here but I got me a rabbit with my little '49 ealier today. He's cleaned and washed and cut up and ready to cook I guess. Trying to think what I might want to go with him. Might just leave him in the refrigerator until tomorrow and eat me a couple of bologna sandwiches....

Sorry so slow on the reply GOTC, but work sorta gets in the way from time to time. Anyway, I really can't tell any difference between FFg and FFFg. I'm sure there is a bit of velocity difference, but just shooting I can't tell it. I usually use FFg in shotgun only, but was out of FFFg at the time I needed it.

Pulp, that's okay buddy. You gotta do what you gotta do. Work come's first..I would imagine that the 2f would give me a bit more power in the inlines but like you just said; it wouldn't be enough to notice. That's one reason I'm glad I like the .45 caliber...I'm still smiling a little over your story!....

Brotherlloyd, buy you a 'baby flask', some .323 swaged round lead balls, and some Remington #10 percussion caps. One throw of powder from the flask is just right. (the Pocket .31 is what the baby flask was made for) Sometimes I use wad over powder. I got them from Cabela's. Most of the time I just use Crisco on whatever I shoot. I do all my small game hunting with the .31. (99.99% of the time) My Walker is too strong for something like small game. It will do the job of course but it's just such a waste.

Brotherlloyd, are you a Mormon? Hope you don't mind me asking..

Thank you Sir. It is a distinct honor to be included in the membership of the THR Walker Club.


GoTC, I notice that your profile location is listed as being in Wyoming. The Chairman of the Board & I have been visiting Cheyenne around the 4th of July for the past 4 years to attend the SASS Hell on Wheels match. Are you per chance a SASS member?

Squirrel oysters??????????????? Are you nuts?

Geeeeez.........being a civilized Southern Gentleman (now living in Arizona Territory), I still like my fried eggs with grits and coffee for breakfast, and for dinner it will be chicken fried steak smothered in pepper gravy, buttered corn on the cobb, melt in your mouth cornbread, and sweet iced tea followed up with right out of the oven peach cobbler for desert - but it stops right there boys - no oysters of any kind unless they come directly from the ocean!!!

TMC.........chicken fried steak with pepper gravy sound darn good. My wife makes it real good. Grits.........not to popular so I haven't had them since I went touring the Civil War battlefields of the South about 20 years ago unfortunately

Noble Sniper,

About the only place out here in the West to get good old plain grits or cheese grits, in addition to the other fine dining items I mentioned above, is at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant. It's funny how diverse our country is when it comes to local foods unknown in other states. One of my favorite movie scenes is from "My Cousin Vinny" when Joe Pesci asks the waiter "what exactly is a grit?". Hell, the whole movie cracks me up just thinking about it - "the two utes", among other famous Pesci lines.

Scrapple. Corn bread made with bacon drippings. Had it at Gettysburg. Yummy!

And, some good news. Being frugal, have to save up with a spending wife, new siding and roof, purchased the building I am in as opposed to renting, and two kids, I will have half the cost of a Walker by this weekend.

Yes, that fever is growing. If it just wasn't hampered by Ruger Bisley, Ruger Single Six Convertable, Marlin 39A and other dreams!!!!

The Doc is out now.
