    I got a 6 season dvd set of this show for Christmas and found the show is way more hit than miss and i absoletely love the show I also think that one of the best episodes ive seen was the one about where Mushy'smother came to bring him home. Also loved the ep where they found a band of Confederates who didnt know the war was over. Also-I think it was a season 2 ep where two of teh drrovers were pressed into jury duty as members of the jury for Nueces county--which was funny looking as the County was apparantly was filled with loads of hills back in the 1800s-not like now. :-)) 8|

    I bought season 1 about a year ago-tried watchng it and got through about 3 episodes before giving it away. Its absolutely one of the dumbest shows ive ever tried watching. Never thought id say that about a western,

    Just saw an ad for tonite's "Pawn Stars"-Ethan Wayne will be on it. Hope to hell they don't have him either pawning something of Duke's, or worse, having "Big Hoss" or Chumley tell Ethan all about some prop Duke used. I'm almost afraid to watch, but I will...



    Didnt know about thsi and thanks. I think ill watch it as well and see how they try to shaft Ethan.

    His Sgt Major O'Rourke in Fort Apache is first rate, but, I'll go with his role as the Reverend-Captain in the Searchers. Bond at his second banana besT. Especially his lines with Pat Wayne as the "shavetail" young Lt.


    BOY! WATCH THAT KNIFE!


    YOU JUST WATCH ME, BOY! I'M THE HARDCASE YOU'RE DEALING WITH OUT HERE, NOT THOSE CHILDISH SAVAGES!



    Heh heh, i'd forgot about that one.

    Heh heh, I dont blame you for "giving up your Garand" my dad carried an M1 or M2 Carbine in both wars. I had an M-1 once--but was only partially a Military but mostly Civvy. I loved that rifle but sold or traded it off long ago for some unremembered reason? That tanker had import markings on it though--which I didnt know when I got it as I dont like marked guns. The markings were so small that I didnt realize what I had till way too late.


    As for summers and temps--its already about 96 F here today and living in my climate is like living in a pit of molten lava. The house i was living in at the time was only wood-but the former tenants there decided to paint shut all the windows in the house. It was difficult to get them unstuck in the living room as well as back porch area-but the bedrooms--couldnt do it for fear of breaking windows. I tried more than one and each gained a crack in them for my efforts. It was absolute hot misery in there and I HAD to get rid of it. I had to sleep in the bathtub with cool water in ti for 3 days. The only good thing that came from it--is that to get the cash-thy guy threw in free (or as more of an incentive) a WWII German K-98 Bayonet w/ matching numbered scabbard-this thing is a beauty and can probably get about $400 for it now. However, im still kneeing myself in the groin for having to give up my Garand. They are beauts and mine had a beautiful stock with a great (for lack of proper terms) "pattern" in it. It was a "Tiger Stripe" pattern. I have seen only one like mine in 20 years-and that one was priced at $4,000.


    The pictured Krag is a beaut. Mine is too-but wood is a bit darker I guess due to age?


    PS, thank you for serving.


    I forgot to mention, I bought mine back in 1997. The seller was asking $385.00 which I knew was high? and he threw in 40 rounds of Winchester ammo for it. Ive never fired it but when I can find some new Krag for it? it's going to the range. ;-)) The leather sling on it is the original one that came with the rifle-so is the same age. It has slight chipping but-the leather is strong and still supple.


    On the Anchor markings--most likely your correct. I heard (but dont know if true or not? but heard those were the ones that were widely used in Haiti. Mine is supposedly a "Philippine Contract" rifle which is supposedly why it was priced as high as it was. The only reason why I ended up with that rifle-was because the seller I wanted to buy from--wouldnt let me make two payments for that German Mauser I now have. He was asking $800 and I said I can get it-but would have to make two payments as I just started a new job and had not made much money in those days. Well, he wouldnt sell w/ 2 payments--that is-until his (later) pregnant wife made him take the money as well as to drop the price by $200-so I could pay it in full. Also, I tried at least twice before to buy that rifle-same deal needed two payments--but he refused and I wound up buying two Walther P-38s from the dealer set up next to him. You should have seen the fire in his eyes when I bought those Walthers. :lol::lol::lol:
