The trigger isn't bad but there is a lot of unnecessary stuff going on in there that makes the trigger a bit spongey.

It will likely be even better when I install this:
Yeah. I want to install that in mine too!

Re: Diagnosis Ruger extractor issue?

While I agree the earlier pistols aren't hindered by useless safeties, and are of good quality. They are also too heavy for my taste in a 22 pistol. That is why I used my old Smith 422 for so long. Also why I use a Colt Frontier Scout instead of a Single Six. Agreed. I look at this gun as something...

Re: Hunting From a Canoe

Very nice. Beautiful pictures, as always.
People do it here for deer and moose. There are many huge bogs and flowages that are very remote. If there is stream access from a road, you can throw in and get to some great hunting areas.
Canoes are common as rocks here, and have been forever.
