Just a humble reflexion: Seems most of the action has moved from here to the Colt forum. Same guys around though.

I try to check in both forums daily. What's going on today? Yesterday we had an inch and a half of snow in the morning; it was mostly gone by afternoon. Today we are having rain for the first day of Spring.

I don't own a Colt, so I am only here.
I had the first teleconference call with our counselor.
It might be easier to just divorce. If I have to stay in Columbia for another year or two to make her happy?
Yeah. Child support will be less costly to my mental health than that.

Day One of quarantine here in rural northern California. Driving to the shop to paint some pre-fabbed rail sections for a deck job. My son (15 almost 16) and I will work on his '64 Chevy truck later. Maybe I will have time to look at that Winchester set-trigger setup that I bought 3 weeks ago.. talk about delayed gratification. Who waits 3 weeks to play with 140 year old gun parts? Turned into my own dad...

got my replacement loading lever for the target Pietta I bought in '14. That gun is curse, I swear. I've run maybe 100 rounds through it since purchase. Always wanting some $.05 or $.10 part... When the loading lever imploded... It took half of the screw with a head with it. I'll be drilling out the base of the screw.
Does anyone know thread pitch and length on the rammer/cylinder pin keeper screw?

Retired, so I have to keep myself busy somehow.
Pretty much all my neighbours are working from home, schools are closed, so there is a lot of family activities going one around us.  People walking, playing Freesbee, ball catching, and lots of people fishing, kayaking or just plainly put-putting around in their boats in the canals that go into and around our neighbourhood.
Temperature is ion the low 80s and flora and fauna are playing spring.
Wife and I went kayaking today.

Been rainy the last couple of days. With that and the quarantine, I have been in the basement cleaning, organizing, and bouncing from project to project.

13 pics wouldn't take, version 1.0
6 wouldn't take.. version 2.0
So, before it crashed ^ I copied this.
Version 3.0...

Came to SLC, UT, training with CR England, Day #2.
Have missed the Mountains, brought the 13-year-old with me, to Grandma's house.
Let him wheel a bit in Moab, trying to make it memorable.

Enjoying the Wasatch Front, I am.

A really nice sequence of pics !
Vast country, bright Milky Way, a good lesson in geography, astronomy, clean air and the forebearers' hardship.
Thanks
