Or 3:10 to Yuma, or any of The Man with No Name movies. You see, because I love westerns, and every time I watch a good western, I end up on the internet looking up places to shoot cowboy action in Indiana (I’ve found two that are within decent driving distance), then I start looking at the pile of .45 Colt brass I have sitting around and think “I should really reload some of that”. Of course, it doesn’t end there – because I make a trip to Mernickle Custom’s website and contemplate getting a slick double gun rig that would be set up to take advantage of the fact that I’m ambidextrous…and of course, there are the guns. Oh the guns. I want to get a nickel Beretta Stampede with a 7.5 inch barrel, because Henry Fonda rocked the nickel 7.5 inch Colt in Once Upon a Time in the West; then I want to get a case-hardened SAA with the classic 4 3/4 inch barrel, but with ivory grips – because Paden in Silverado carried that gun.
And that doesn’t even get into my lust for open top Colt cartridge conversions, or building more ’58 Remington revolvers in .45 Colt conversions. Which reminds me, I need to buy some 200 grain bullets and some Trail Boss.
