Re: Baby wipes

See, this is why I like the South. It's not that I mind cold, per se. But my version of winter is one that starts in January and ends in February. 8)

Re: Questions on tang screw for Pedersoli Sharps

The trigge plate on the Pedersoli is a bit odd. There's a large lug with a hollowed out center directly in the middle of the plate - looks to either be forged/cast on (not sure if it's a forged or cast plate) or brazed in place. It sits directly under the front tang screw hole, and the trigger lever...

Re: Questions on tang screw for Pedersoli Sharps

Never mind. All is well. I was able to file the screw short enough and then clean up the screw head with a hacksaw and files.

Re: Any .22lr BPCR matches near Baltimore

I've shot at Delmarva a couple of times. It's a nice range with gongs at 200, 300, and 500 yards. I haven't been there for a formal match, though. Thanks for the tip.

Re: What is wrong here?

As a relative newby, I come here to read a lot. Many of my questions are answered simply by a search. I have gotten good answers to most of the questions I posted, though a few have gone unseen. It kinda sucks that there isn't more traffic here.

Questions on tang screw for Pedersoli Sharps

I'm re-posting in the General section since the original post didn't get any traction in the gunsmithing section. Mods, please do as you need in case this is a no-no. I put Lee Shaver sights on my Pedersoli 74 Sharps. It's got that issue where the original tang screw is too long when used under the ...

Front tang screw for Pedersoli Sharps Silhouette model

I put Lee Shaver sights on my 74 Sharps. It's got that issue where the original tang screw is too long when used under the sight mounting plate, and interferes with the triggers. The screw was shortened some, but I wonder how much it should be shortened. When operating the triggers with the sight re...

New-to-me Stevens 418

I just got my first Stevens, a Walnut Hill 418. Cosmetically, it looks immaculate (mostly anyway; it's got a couple of handling dings in the stock, but it's an 80-ish-year-old rifle). https://beta-static.photobucket.com/images/q431/j_robertparker/0/52d51edd-fa68-4317-ae29-e73066d77f93-original.jpg?w...

Here's my Dad's CPA Silhouette in .40-65. I've only shot it once, but it sure is nice.

Re: Baby wipes

I used these for the first time this week, and they worked great. I use the Huggies ones that are in bulk from Costco ('cause that's what we're using for my 2-y.o.). Cleaned up the bore nicely, and let me only having to swab the bore with a couple patches with Shooter's Choice once I got home.

Re: Any .22lr BPCR matches near Baltimore

That used to be 2 hours from me. I live near Baltimore, MD now. Guess I should change my profile!

However, my in-laws live near Alma, so I'll keep that in mind next time I visit them. Thanks!

Any .22lr BPCR matches near Baltimore

I just bought a Stevens 418. I've been wanting a .22lr falling block for a while, and I see some discussions of the .22 BPCR matches. Are there any within an hour or two of Baltimore? The only place I've seen do regular BPCR much near me is Ridgeway, and in my time of life I can't easily take a 6 ho...

Re: Are my cases ruined?

Ok, thanks! I'm still getting the hang of BP cartridge processes. I never let a gun sit longer than a few hours after the past shot, but it's always been muzzleloaders and c&b revolvers before.
