Heat I can do, but this smoke is something else. Haven't been horse back for a while. First, was gone contemplating and fishing:





But heck I'm more of a stream guy than a lake guy.



But ya know how it is. Get back and deadlines in the shop to meet. Get that all handled and now its so smokey ya don't want to be and probably shouldn't be outside. Poor ponies. What's a guy to do? More contemplation, we were camped at Whiskey Bay afterall:



And find another stream...... or ya can do lake fishing if ya have Lily herd the trout beasties to ya:

HW,
That is an impressive line up of fishing lures.

Is it, "Cast one, then drink one, or cast once.... and drink 'um all". lol

Stay cool and safe.

ya know Mr. Horsewright, our midwest farm is a lot smaller than your spread, but we'd get along real good after a hard day's work

as a Squire, I am a bit of Jack snob tho

A tiny bit of that Crown Royal in a chilled glass of cherry juice, while watching late night movies will have me sleepy quick.

What in tarnation! is goin' on in here...

HW, where's Whiskey Bay? Is it somewhere along the Kern?

KB, you'll have to translate "since I'm a Squire, I'm a bit of a Jack Daniels [aficionado]". I understand the Jack Daniels part...




Holy Toledo! This weather is like living in Houston, or so I hear. Not terribly hot, but between the smoke and the humidity, I'm staying inside the rest of the day.

Do remember our MLC who live farther north, like Spyder, who have been threatened by the many wildfires in their region. Let's hope for the best. I hope all MLC remain safe from the ravages of any fire.

I was out earlier this morning at a Cars/Trucks-N-Coffee get together. Good to see some old car buddies and talk automotive machinery. There were some neat rides there too.

Guess I can go catch up with some televised Indianapolis practice! Marco A is on pole, a first for that family in decades. The Indy 500 runs tomorrow, August 23rd. Don't miss it!

Can't wait to get back out and go shootin'! That's fer danged sure.

The Indy is tomorrow? Thanks for letting me know.

Being in "Smoke Alley" out here. I can continue to hide inside and watch the race.

Apples, Thanks for the Indy heads up. We shot at Burro week before last. Safe and fun. Too hot this week.

You guys in fire areas take care. Bad deal.

Oh, I have a Howa 1500 in 308 in the mail from Bud's. Very tiny horizontal lever. lol Going to scope it in 4x10x44. Test ammo already loaded. 308 is a new reload for me.

Shot Steel Challenge last Wednesday at Prado. Also hot but I needed to shoot some pistol. The "kids" put on an awesome exhibition of expensive guns and "tacticool" paraphernalia. I dug in the closet and shot my 1911 9m steel sights (200 rds of 45 ACP would have hurt the next day) and used my $25 plastic holster and mag pouches. Great fun. Super Senior class rules!

Apples it’s at Crowley lake. Smoke and her boyfriend Dave were with us:



I took Killer Bee's use of the word Squire as landed gentry. If ya notice he's got all the higher end Jacks there pictured, no off the shelf regulars. I've had some of that Single Barrel stuff my ownself and its fine. Course my tastes do lean toward his Glenfiddich and the Balvenie. Both of which are made with water from the Spey river, where I use to live. The Spey is a fly fishing mecca and see we are full circle on this deal. Cause here's Dave and I fly fishing on Whiskey Creek:

Prerace hoopla on now.

Well boys she did it! She pulled the trigger! However, she gave into the dark side.

We was on a flyfishing/someplace else we want to camp scouting trip Wednesday. We'd never been to a Sportsman Warehouse before and we stopped in the one in Visalia cause it was kind on the way to wear we was scouting. Not looking for anything in particular, just checking stuff out. Wandered over to the firearm section and they had two Marlin 1894Cs, Two 1895s, a Henry Long Ranger, an Uberti 1873 with 24" bbl and an 1866 yellow boy alos with 24" bbl. Had an iron frame case hardened Henry 1860 in .45LC and man was that gorgeous. don't know if that was an Uberti or a Henry. Several Browning BL .22s in different grades. Just quite a few levers for a guy to drool over. However the rifle she wanted to see and ended up buying?

https://weatherby.com/store/vanguard-first-lite/

Yep in the 6.5 Creedmore she was looking at. She really liked this rifle. So in a while we'll drive back up and pick er up. Now we're looking at glass.

With short notice I was able to get Apples and Penn out to the Mojave on Friday to help zero in my Henry Long Range and drool over Tom's new 45 colt SAA. You can see how bad the sky looks from the fires. It wasn't as bad there as it was on the other side of the mountain.

Like always we spend more time shooting the **** then we do actual shooting guns, even at social distancing..

Oh man, I'd have a hard time passing up that case hardened 1860. It's on my short list of need to buy.

HW,

How are you doing with all the fires. Even in OC the smoke and ash are unbelievable.

Congrats to Nichole on her new Weatherby Vanguard in 6.5 Creedmore. She will love that action. It is made by Howa and is highly rated.

No pctures, but I went to the range today to check some of my rifles out to see if they were still sighted in. Amazon screwed up delivery on the rings for my new Remington 600 Mohawk .243 so I wasn't able to get it dialed in...

But in the spirit of the MLC, I shot my Rossi 92 .45 Colt and yep, it was still sighted in. Or at least as well my old eyes will do with open sights. No bragging size groups with it, but they all stayed in the black at least. The load was 225 gr coated "truncated cone" with W231 powder. It sure was pleasant shooting!

I've been thinking about selling everything in 9mm to get one made by Standard Manufacturing.

My last post was misleading. Tom's SAA in 45 colt is made by Pietta

It is, isn't it. And mind the base pin! If'n we don't get them thar latch notches lined up, the base pin wants to foller them bullitz!




That was a fun morning. Next time I'm stayin' all damn day and catch another sunset. We sent a few reduced-recoil 235 gr handloads downrange from the Mark X Safari Express in .375 H&H, too.

I have to apologize to you, sir. I brought some steel targets and didn't set them up. It was one of the first things you asked me. We should always have one or two setup past 100 yards.

No worries. I'm glad you had a rangefinder.

Let's do this again some time.

It was something I had wanted for a while. It really comes in handy on the golf course as well in the Mojave..

Its always a great time when we get out there. It does bug me that you have to drive so far, and when you do we should stay longer.

This afternoon I sent a request to Standard Manufacturing for info on turn around time, from initial order with full payment to FFL shipment. My interest is in a blue version with 4 3/4Ē barrel, in .45 Colt. I donít really need one, but it would be another quality piece to leave for the kids.

Oh yeah, fun time in the desert! Really liking that Pietta. A lot. Chris straighten me out on the transfer bar index notches. It wanted to go forward after first 2 shots. He noticed them, showed me(blind!), and it was all good. Thank you Chris! Got Mark's Henry LR and AR30 shooting mighty good. Chris was having a ball shooting everything he brought. Accurately! All in all,a damn good day in the Mojave. Man,it felt good getting out again. To the Mojave!!

If I go that route, Iíll have to order three; one for each kid, and one for the nephew, 12, who Iíve started teaching how to use a 1911.
In the past, Iíve bought multiples (four identical pistols for school, and three GSRís), and a bunch of others, but thatís for another thread.

We are flattered! you should mention the esteemed Red-Osier, however he has been nowhere near this thread since it's inception, sadly.

I am the OP of this convoluted thread of lever-action mirth and merriment, therefore I will simply add papaboomboom to the MLC Roster!

Welcome aboard!

Yeah the smoke has been really bad, then a clear day and worse the next day. Everybody is a hacking and a coughing.

We got her rifle scoped and sighted in and she does indeed really love it, she has named it The Bad Little Bitc.... Here it be:







We did go out one evening but the piggies failed to show. Saw the most coyotes I'd ever seen though, Gonna have to see how that Weatherby does at rolling those guys.

Had to go out and fix some fence where it had been cut and bent back by some trespassers. Had a heifer out. Got her back in, just at dark and then came back the next morning to fix the "gate". This part of the ranch we call The Corner and its haunted. Hills have eyes kinda a deal. Even some of the old really broke horse don't like going back there, they'll get a little spooky. I rode my new three year old filly Lil Sis and she did great. She was curious about what was going on. These pics kinda show the smoke conditions on a moderate day, ya just can't see:







No whirlen poppers this day. I had the Glock 43 and the wife had her Sig 365:



There's something back there............

We did go out one evening but the piggies failed to show. Saw the most coyotes I'd ever seen though, Gonna have to see how that Weatherby does at rolling those guys.

That should be fun and interesting research.

When Mark, Tom and I met up at the last minute on Friday in the Mojave, I had in addition to the usual lever lineup my .375 Mark X and some mild-mannered 235 gr Speer jsp spitzers. Want to put radar to these because while they'll shove you back a bit they're not uncomfortable to shoot. Wanna see how fast they go. Used AA5744 and there was clean, complete utilization of all propellent. No kernels left over. Mayhaps the Win LRMP had something to do with that. Dunno...

Had to go out and fix some fence where it had been cut and bent back by some trespassers. Had a heifer out. Got her back in, just at dark and then came back the next morning to fix the "gate".

That lil' girl has a good face. I like her a lot, and from way over here.

Holy Toledo, Dave... no gloves, no come-along. Just bare hands, barbed wire n' pliers. Awlrightythen!

Chupacabra?



I'm ready for whatever it is with what Taffin calls a "perfect packin' pistol": the 4-5/8" Ruger NMB flat top .44 Special stoked with a hopped-up version of Skeeter's load.

That, and the .45-70 in the scabbard!

Here's hoping you folks up there catch a break from the smoke, soon. This weather pattern should begin to change by week's end.

Just looked at my notes for that load. I got the recipe from the Hornady 9th Edition. That load is for the 225 gr Hornady bullet and the dose of smokeless good for 2000 fps. I figure with a 10 gr heavier bullet it's awfully close. Case was *maybe* half full.

Again this is a reduced recoil load using a Speer 235 grain and it's for learning to run the rifle, although it could also be effective on smaller game.
