    I don't get the hand thingy at all. Is that the international signing for those terms?

    I tend to know when my steaks are the correct done-ness the way I was taught by a cook while I was busing tables in high school. I can tell the said done-ness by poking it with my index finger and know where it is at by the resistance and bounce back.

    Thats the only way I will take a Petite Filet or Strip. I actually prefer both cuts Pittsburgh'd on a 500+ degree Grill Skillet for 30-60 seconds on either side (depending on the thickness), rather than a open grill.

    Favorite cut is a good ole med rare Ribeye or rare Baseball Filet.

    The pic is a "Hardness Guide" that you can use to check how much heat has penetrated (and firmed up) the cut of meat Randy. Rare feels like the Cheek of your thumb without flexing it. As you touch each finger starting with your index, the cheek of your thumb gets tighter and tighter. Try it, its pretty accurate for a quick reference.

    Im with you on the finger poke test though. Thats how my Pops taught me. So after doing it that way for 25+ years, that is my normal method.

    That 1100 Jam-O-Matic looks to be in great shape for a 70's gun!!

    Jam-o-Matic is not the case for this one. Its in crisp shape! the wood still shines, the engraving is like none that they do today, no scratch's, i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw it. The gentleman who i purchased it up from only used it on a few hunts but never seemed to clean it. EVER. After about a good hour or cleaning and giving her a good oiling, it performs great, Jamming comes from not replacing the O-Ring regularly. There is a still a a lot of tension in the action so ejection and reload is fast and tight. Only downside to the older gun is no removable choke, i would need to buy a new barrel.

    But bird season i dont believe is open so its off to kill pig! OINK!

    Not necessarily!!!

    Briley Manufacturing, shotgun choke manufacturer and gunsmithing - Choke Installation FAQ

    Briley can take a plain barrel and rig it for screw-in chokes for a modest fee of about $200. I've got a Browning Auto-5 Light Twenty that I've had them work on. Took it from a fixed modified to a screw-in choke gun that I can shoot everything with now. Took about four weeks, so get it done before bird season starts in September! They take pride in their work!!

    Speaking of gunsmithing, I've got a lot of that going on around here, it seems.

    Just got my estimate from S&W for the rebuild of the 1969 S&W Model 41 .22lr target pistol I bought a couple months ago from an old WWII P-47 pilot in Phoenix. I paid $450 for it (its worth easily $1200, and I told him so, but he said he couldn't see asking more than $450). It shot tiny groups, but was having feed issues with all types and velocities of ammo I tried. Then, it failed to extract a spent casing and I had to take it down to its parts to get a cleaning rod down the barrel to dislodge the casing from the breech. And then the takedown lever jammed so that I couldn't reassemble the gun.

    S&W says it'll look and function like a new gun when I get it back in a couple weeks. At $400 for the complete disassembly, tolerance-check, replacement of worn parts, refinishing, re-assembly, tuning, and function test, I figure I've still got at least $400 in equity should I ever choose to sell it. If it shoots as accurately as it did before it broke and is reliable again, I doubt I'll sell it. It's just that sweet a handgun.



    That and:

    My new Glock 35 gets dropped off at Taran Tactical Innovations in Simi on Monday for a $400 makeover into the sweet USPSA Limited gun I've been wanting.
