    They have a sigh up on the door that if you buy elsewhere and have them do the transfer, the charge will
    be 20% of the value of the firearm.   :o

    They obviously no longer wish to do transfers.

    That was my opinion, also, they have done some for me in the past;
    but, I first asked if they could get the firearm and they could not and
    told me, at that time, to get it anywhere I could and they would be happy
    to do the paperwork, it was not expensive at that time.

    My LGS transferred 3 lowers on one form 4473 and charged me 35$ each, can't complain though, they are only 15 minutes away and have been very fair over the years, just the way the business has gotten. The LGS had a flood out of one of their minnow tanks a couple years ago and had to do a pretty extensive remodel after the flood, flash forward 18 months and here comes the BATFE for their "20 year" audit and they gave them a grocery list of things that needed to be upgraded and changed, the owner is not dumping a bunch of money into the building he does not own, he is at that age anyway, going to have to find another LGS.

    I get them sent to a pawn shop that charges $15 for CHL holders. I bought two AR receivers at the same time, and it cost me $20.

    I'd find a new LGS. And that's what I'm in the process of doing now.  My favorite, and close, Mom and Pop shop got sold, and the new owners are jerks.

    Shot some Rem HP's today, regular loads, at least not special SD billed .45 ACP ammo.

    The Blackhawk shot real well after the sight adjustment.

    Water was down, none running over the forest road. As a result, some jack wagon got out there and made a fire in this heat and burned my
    section of log I used as a tgt stand.

    Left an empty wiskey bottle and some MRE related trash, I cleaned it up.

    Yellow flies were still a pain.

    Good to hear the Blackhawk is limbering up and shooting good groups. :up:
    Sorry to hear about the combustion of the target stand by the idiot. Maybe he was trying to smoke out the yellow flies with waterlogged wood?
    Which reminds me of something I did way back when to keep people away from one of my favorite fishing spots. I got three BIG rubber snakes that looked like copperheads and placed one under the log section I used as a seat, and tied the other two in bushes to left and right of the log seat. They looked real enough that I checked to make sure before I sat down! :silly: :tooth:
    Snake decoys?

    Shot some .45 acp in the Blackhawk, not shooting well with HP; ball on the other hand shoots to point of aim.

    The front sight is hard to see, I painted it today.

    Might have to try some 45 long cold in it tomorrow :uhm:
    Cold or Colt? You spell worse than that Snake guy!!!

    The hp's are likely a different weight than the ball.

    Long cold is more fun🎯

    I see they have come out with a more destructive shock wave--------- a .410 model.

    The 20 ga is probably the most practical.
    Remember that .410 guy who was on here who got banned.

    Went out to shoot some 9 mm Federal syntax, there were some people working out there,
    so I just rode on my bicycle for the fun of it. As I went around a curve I had fist sized turkey poults
    running every which way and the hen just squatted down about 4 ft off the forest road. 

    U figured that the workers would break for lunch, so I went back out at  noon.

    The plastic coated rnds shot as well as any other 9mm 115 gr ball rnd .

    When I got home I cleaned the pistol specifically to see if I would find any plastic in the
    barrel; I did not. I, also. noticed this syntax ammo is fairly clean as well.

    I could not insert an empty mag in a 1911 today, it went in about as far as the mag release
     button.

    I loaded one rnd and it went in just like greased owl droppings.

    Fired 6 rnds and now the empty mag goes in and out as it should.

    What do you think was wrong?

    Was the follower/out of kilter or tilted and then when you inserted a rd it straightened out? Maybe your mag release was being stiff.

    I thought it looked right. and  the mag release might have been stiff---------maybe it loosened up during the shooting. Anyway I tried working some breakfree into the mag release system from both sides when I cleaned it up after shooting.

    Put an LCR in a plastic bread bag turned inside out to keep any residual bread crumbs
    out of the action. The intend was to keep the LCR clean and dry.

    An hour or so later, I removed the revolver from the bag after having it and the bag in my pocket.

    The LCR looked like it had rust all over it, that did not wipe off y rubbing a finger over the rust.

    Was going to get serious about cleaning it and remembered it is a LCR with a plastic and aluminum frame and a scandium cylinder. Why the rust?

    Turned out the rust was not rust; but, what I believe was paint off the bag. It wiped off  easily with a cleaning patch and breakfree.

    Bottom-line, don't use such bags inside out.

    I went out to shoot and see how much water was flooding the gravel road. I go down the 
    road farther than vehicles can get because of an oak tree that has been down across the road for a few years, resulting in fairly high grass and weeds right up to the expected tire tracks on such roads.

    I was crossing the last water hazard that was wet; but, no standing water. There was a water moccasin laying in the road that I did not see until I was a couple of feet from it.

    All I could do was pull my feet up as high as I could and roll over it. I saw the fangs coming
    and then I hit the shake. That probably stopped the strike or it hit metal. Anyway I wasn't bit 
    and the bicycle tires did not go flat.

    I stopped and walked back and made sure that would not happen on the way out by getting
    it off the road.

    I then shot some water filled jugs with .327 death wish ammo. One jug blew up and

    the other just leaked water.

    OK, then like a good Marine you snatched it up and bit it in two!

    Went out there again today------no snakes, just a bog turtle laying eggs
    in the road. Eggs won't hatch------something always digs them up and probably
    eats them.

    Some snakes do eat eggs------not sure they dig them up-------just raid bird nests.

    I went out and shot some of those .32 S&W long wadcutters I mentioned in the .32 Bisley!  thread.

    I used a single 7 and did not get good results like I had in the past using a SP-101.

    May have been the single 7 did not like them or they were too slow for the sight setting for .327 PSP.


    Or my new glasses and I am seeing things in a different spot.
