    If I get up that way we will hook up. I am always down to shoot so is Ethan. I have a 70 series Combat Commander that I like to shoot but I also Have a Springfield Range Officer that is also a Hell of a gun. I recently got a Keltec KSG that is a whole lot of fun to shoot.
    My favorite though is big bore Revolvers.

  2. i shot a friends 50 cal revolver this past spring. while fun and accurate it was not something i would want to shoot a box through. six was enough for me. the 410 shotgun shell revolver looks like fun. i prefer sigs due to their reliability and superb triggers.

  10. The engine is out for this season has come to a end. everything has been washed off and wiped down. now comes the fun part. inspecting and measuring every moving part. things appear to be good so far by a visual inspection. there have been no obvious surprises. the rod journels and bearings look great. while not out yet the cam looks perfect. this is the first time the pan has been off. no surprises there either. rogèr and i have been working on a weekend we can get together and service the heads. im going to order some spare pistons so we need to modify them to match the others. all in all im pleased with how things look so far. i wasnt too far off on the tune up with the way it all looks. 20161113_165849.jpg 20161113_165800.jpg

  18. are you bringing one of your little cars to the Rosemont? that would be funny. I heard about glens crash. sounds real bad. the lunch crowd said he almost died during the second surgery.

    No, the season has ended for the Microcars.
    I guess he really got busted up, they put in a few plates to repair the damage.
    Working on the Comet now!! It will be a few years for this one to see action.
