    Best Gun show ever. Just looking for a set of proper grips for my colt trooper. Well I got the grips. Perfect origonal colt manufactured stocks. I should have left then. I got a couple of tyler grips, a fully automatic BB gun, A Colt detective special revolver with a bit of holster wear ($500) , some Jerky, and some fudge

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    Haven't had a horse in the stable since 1988 when I stupidly sold my Diamondback.

    Put a Colt Trooper MkIII on hold at my LGS. 1980 by serial #. 6" barrel.

    I need to find a set of replacement grips, preferably OEM.

    I know, I know pics or it didn't happen

    Picked up the Trooper III today.

    Found a set of NOS rosewood grips that haven't arrived yet and it will share the holster for the 6" GP100.

    Good news for Arkansas residents today...

    Yesterday Arkansas Court of Appeals upheld that ACT 746 DOES protect constitutional carry.

    This is the first case (that I know of) that has done so since the law went into effect.

    @HotGuns have you seen this yet?

    Yeah I know no pics or it didnít happen so believe me or not. Iíve gotten a few this past year but decided not to ďshow and tellĒ online any longer - getting too paranoid HOWEVER, I have to tell about the scope that came with one of my purchases. My most recent purchase cost $500 and for what I got we were both more than pleased for the piece itself. Hereís the fun part and why Iím posting, on top was a $400 red dot scope!!!

    CWO was fit to be tied so I had to tell that part - what a deal!

    How are you gonna hold onto that thing? You'll have to rough them up with a wood-burning pen and top it off with skateboard tape. Otherwise, it will slip right out of your bloody, sweaty hands!

    We'll see how they feel when I get it to the range. I may need to get some checkering files and see what I can do. They're oversize, so there should be plenty of material to work with.

    Right! Measure twice, cut once. Order new grips.

    Not an option. Found these on E-bay NOS. As far as I can tell, they are as out of production as the Trooper.

    I just ordered two loaders for .22 magazines. I have one that is an oblong piece of plastic, close to 1/4" thick, with a hole the side of the Mark IV magazine in the middle. You push down on the solid sides and save your thumb from numb by no longer having to push on that nasty little side button. I wanted 2 more, for the M&P compact .22 and the Browning 1911-22, but didn't want to spend a fortune.

    I have the mini UPLula which will load the magazines BUT it also will dent the brass - .22 brass being quite a bit thinner than .380 brass - so it is either find the outside the magazine ones that push down on the loading button or use the old, sore fingers.

    So we spent the afternoon going to all the local gun stores. No joy. Not even close, so it was back to the internet. I ordered one by Maglula that is way too expensive but made for the .22 compact (and a few other mags that size), and one that is going to be too small/narrow in the opening for the Browning, but it was only a few bucks and gramps can get out his files and dremel and play with it to see if he can make it work.

    The maglula one was $20 and higher everywhere. I found it on Amazon for $14.75 including sales tax, so I got both of them for $7.90 less than I would have had to pay on Midway. I feel pretty good about that. I like the folks at Midway, but -----
