Found this handy little item at Cabela's, one of the reviews said it was a tight fit. He was right but once I got the 45 colt and 44-40's in it loosen up. We use them when we go to the loading table to load our guns for cowboy action shooting. They work like a dream, holds 10 rounds either side so ya have 20 runs that ya can get your hands on fast. I bet it would hold 38 sp. as long as ya just used them. I was lucky enough to make my loading blocks for the 38's without turning the wood into fire wood lol. Just thought I would pass this along.

Your picture posting skills are right up there now. :)

I seen those on Cabela's site but didn't know what they'd be used for. Now I know. :mrgreen:

i don't know why, but this thread for some reason reminded me of this feller



ole' Jack Elam (r.i.p.) in the John Wayne movie "Rio Lobo" where he had the two row shotgun with the triggers wired back.
Spare shells in a canvas sack hangin' around his neck

and that famous line during the big gunfight at the end--- "don't mind if i shoot do ya'? makes me feel better......"

Thanks, sorta proud of that posting myself lol. There are many different types of loading block or strips. I made mine just starting out its pretty simple ( had to be for me to do it lol) I have 2 rows five holes each then a space and the same thing. Need to have 20 rounds with ya at the loading tables five for each pistol and 10 for the rifle. Some times ya have to load off your belt and ya only load 9 in the rifle, but they tell ya that before the stage. I like these better, I have these stretched out for the 45colt and 44-40, so no double duty here 38's would fall out. But the blocks I have now will do me fine until I get my money better.
Deputy125 do ya think I would ask someone if I could shoot them? Ofcourse it would make me feel better. BTW wasn't he also the one that rang that bell with the shotgun?

that was Arthur Hunnicutt (rip) in the John Wayne movie "El Dorado" he played a character called Bull and was a deputy to Robert Mitchum. He rang that bell with a revolving rifle if i remember right.


i really liked that revolving rifle as it was the 1st one i had ever seen. it was something like this

You know what? Jack Elam was always one of my favorite actors.
I wonder how many movies he played in.
Many moons ago I went to LA for the first time to work on a record with some friends of mine.
Havin always been a westerns fan, I just started looking up phone numbers of western actors. I found a listing for Jack Elam and called it. I told the gravelly voice that answered who I was and why I was calling and he said he was Jack.
We talked for a couple minutes, I told him how much I appreciated his acting, he thanked me very sincerely and we hung up.
I’ve known a lot of famous rock stars but I’ll never forget talking on the phone to Jack Elam.

nice to hear about that as he also was one of my favorite side-kicks in movies. He played the bad guy part well, i liked him catching the fly in his revolver barrel at the start of "once upon a time in the west". But i also liked him in the comedies such as with James Garner in "support your local sheriff" and
"support your local gunfighter".

Rio lobo --another scene/line i liked was him in the house shooting thru the window, he would let loose with a shotgun blast and then yell "whose out there"!!!!!!!kind of let the gun do the talking before he did :D

That must be nice. I enjoy sitting back and watching western series sometimes. I enjoy movies more, but I like Gunsmoke, Big Valley and Bonanza. :ugeek:

Interesting bio on Jack Elam. Talk about those turns in life that change your life forever. He was a CPA doing an audit on a motion picture company and got pulled into the film as what else a bad guy and the rest as they say was history.
