Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Hurricane Florence: A Call for Help!

Thank you, Robert. Your help is appreciated.

You guys got hit hard last year. I hate to hear you were affected. You guys were in a mess with the heat as an aggregating factor.

This is our 4th Hurricane. It is getting old. I have to create a way to get the hell out of this area. At least Matthew hit in October during cooler weather in 2016.  ^y%

Tim, check your PayPal account.  Sorry can't help more.  This is not a loan not a handout - this is help.  I was in Hurricane Harvey last year and was not impacted than lost power two and half days but the generator kicked in was OK.  I feel you for your loss.  Hang in there as it will get better.

With the exception of one person who I could not find an email address for on PayPal, I have contacted all who have come to our aid with loans and gifts.

Please contact me on the forum or at smokey@blackpowdersmoke.com, if you helped out in our time of crisis and you have not received an email or PM from me.

I want to be sure I have contacted everyone.

You guys are truly lifesavers for us. I can not thank you enough.

This should be the last time I send out a distress call. This one was far from anticipated.

Those are some nice cappers. I have 2 TC Snail cappers. 1 is for #10 caps and the other is for #11 caps. I figure soon all will be #11 caps if I keep replacing Pietta nipples with Track of the Wolf stainless nipples, which use #11 caps. I fitted a new Pietta cylinder to my 73 ASP NMA and put Wolf nipples on it and modified the nipple ports to work with the TC Snail capper. The original cylinder has not been modified.

Sweet! The grips also feel very good in the hand. It's one of the few pistols I have that has remained exactly as I bought it.....except for the original coil hand spring which is kept safe someplace on the living room carpet.

Here's mine.......

Most guys I know say the classes state very clearly if pulled over by an officer of the law to show him your conceal license with your drivers license up front so there is no confusion at all. It may be the law in Texas, I don't know. I don't carry concealed.

I do that myself. Got stopped in a DUI Check Point in Missouri and showed them my DL, proof of insurance, and CCW card. No issues and they passed me right through. Got stopped on a fishing expedition in Tucson, AZ and presented my CCW card, insurance card, and DL - chatted with the officer for a bit and was free to go. He was looking for drunks.

He did say to me "Welcome to Arizona. Everyone here is carrying a gun!"



Back to the topic at hand.
Here's my 2001-ish Pietta NMA (top) and 2018 Pietta NMA Sheriff (bottom):



Where were you fishing around Tucson? ...and yes, we are carrying....lol.

Our electricity and internet access has been restored. I am working on restoring things to normal.

I have been in communication with some of the guys who have assisted us, but not all. I am working from a phone when I can, so it is a slow and tedious process.

There are a couple that I have contact info on who I have not contacted.

There are a couple that I am having trouble retrieving contact info on.

I do appreciate the help we have received, and I intend to connect the dots and get in touch with all of the kind folks who have aided us in our time of trouble.
