    I heard about the round issue but not the others. Cool, thanks for sharing! I would think the Cavalry comfort argument doesn't make too much sense, as a battle would be too fast paced for anyone to be able to actually reload while riding a battle-shocked horse, and if you've shot all your shots...

    Schofield arrived today... what a beast. LOVE shooting this thing! Quite a big beast. I can't see how the Single Action Army won over this thing... so much easier to load, easier to aim and shoot and seems better balanced.

    The Silver Jubilee is back... sounding better than ever. Apparently something was wrong with the tube sockets. They changed them out and the tubes too.

    Ooooh recording setup talk? Time to clean up and take some photos after work :dude:. Most MIDI stuff comes with a USB output these days, especially keyboards. Some even double as a basic interface.

    What's the model called? Looks great, like a Remington should. Both fun and cheap. Pellets are $5 per 500. The only thing that gets annoying is if you've got a CO2 powered one, they eat CO2 cartridges like crazy. Yes, bows are legal in most countries, also Europe doesn't have a single law for...

    Not as fun as hand-loading fake shells and quick-drawing a Colt Single Action Army, though :rofl:. But archery is an awesome thing to do! A lot of fun, too. And it's a useful skill, you never know these days.

    I haven't really had any G.A.S. since last december... everything I got this year was carefully planned out and a choice from 3 options. I'm doing pretty well on that front. Only unexpected thing was the 335, but that was relatively cheap and a good deal. Only thing I bought was the Classic...

    I've been secretly recording for an EP by my buddy. It's nice to have the variety. I couldn't get the feel right for one song... Then I picked up a Jazzmaster and it all came to me in one single take.

    My Marshall is coming back tomorrow. They just sent it back with no word on what happened and if they fixed it... Let's hope they did! I'm cured of Guitar GAS. No 335, no anything. The classic was IT. No point in expanding the collection when in the end there's one obvious winner for playing...

    :rofl: Once I do, we gotta go to a range some time! Small caliber/power imitations are fun, but not trying to kid myself into believing it's anywhere near the real deal!

    Either Europe gets ffd for power or I have bad taste... 33.9? That's insane! Maybe they're downgraded to meet law requirements here. Though .22 is considered a weapon here and needs a weapon license (very hard to get). .177 is just a tiny pellet/bb with a spring or CO2 powering it.

    As long as you're a fan of historical arms, yes! You gotta shoot 'em at a certified gun range, though. Can't do it on your own land. That's why I love .177 BB's and Pellets. Zero restrictions, only that the power isn't bigger than 17 Joules, which is plenty for any airgun. Most reach 4-5 J.

    Not exactly, but "factory made" type cartridges are off-limits for non-licensed people. There's some workarounds and cap conversions. In general anything before 1886 should be OK. Usually the safest way to go is to buy something where you put the cap, powder and bullet in separately without a...

    Quite easy to find a modern made firing replica. Price ain't too bad either for what it is. Only catch is there's a few things changed (but nothing drastic) to make it one that doesn't require a license. Most are cap-firing conversions.

    It sure sounds like great time! Wanna start off with a Colt Navy, maybe after that a Sharps rifle.
