  1. When you are wanting to go shoot, don't just leave...don't just tell the T.O. that he/she needs another spotter and walk away. Find one yourself before you leave! It's rude to expect the T.O. to do EVERYTHING for you. So...have a nice day. Phantom

  2. And if you've already shot, don't wait to get called on, go ask who needs relief.

  3. I do a fair amount of traveling - but mostly weekend trips or short hops to buy something or close a deal. In the course of these trips; if I can - I like to pop into a local match and shoot. I will be in California in August; so I decided to look at clubs that their shoots (according to the SASS club listing) coincide with the time I will be there. What do I find? Websites that have not had schedules updated since 2016 - no monthly shoot dates or times - advertising shoots from two years ago. C'mon. It is not that hard - if you have a website; show a littl

  4. That poster is a dork. Also your normal CAS shooter has got four guns. Two Single Action Armys. When you gonna insult somebody, you really need to make sure of your facts.

  5. I had one of the best days of my life this past Sunday in Chapel Hill, NC, when my son was married to his best friend and true love. It makes you feel young again, and inspired with hope for the next generation. And the in-laws have warmly accepted him, despite the fact that he's a Yankee. Both are UNC grads. LL

  6. For years and years it's been common for folks to slight the cost of a Shotgun. They would buy a new set of revolvers and have $1,500 invested in them by the time they were in the holsters. Then they would buy a Rifle (usually a 73) and have $1,500 invested by the time it was on their shoulder. Then they would go out and buy a cheap Shotgun. For some reason folks just didn't want to spend money on a Shotgun. I've always considered the Shotgun the "make or break" gun of the set. Having a quality Shotgun is just as important as the Revolvers and the Rifle. No doubt there are deals to be had on g

  8. D Day timeline: By now, 0500 hrs June 6, 1944, US paratroops of the 505th Regt have captured St Mere Eglise and British paras have taken Pegasus bridge. The invasion fleet sits off shore. At 0510, the cruiser HMS Orion will fire the first shots at German coastal positions. The invasion of Europe has begun! https://www.dday-overlord.com/en/d-day/timeline

  9. J & S Old West Cowboy Museum Yesterday at 9:14 PM · Have you ever wondered why they cut a mules tail in "bells"? Back in the day.....the Army used mules in service. A green mule had its tail shaved. By the time the mule was broke to pack, a 'bell' was trimmed in the tail. Once broke to drive, a second bell was added below the first. Broke to ride, a third tassel was trimmed below the second. Thus, a three-bell mule was a well-schooled animal. This way, when looking at a corral full of unknown mules, it was easy to identify w

  10. Cut down the amount of stages or round count and no one will shoot...kind of the Socialist effect. Take from those that have and everyone has less. I too covered my butt by having inventory. If you lived through the previous shortages and didn't learn your lesson...then take up fishing or something till the components come back on the markets. Don't make others pay for your poor planning. Phantom

  11. I was sitting here thinking about a new Chronicle article and decided to try a short on-line article on shot shells for CAS. To keep things simple we are talking 12 gauge as that is what most CAS shooters use. We are also talking about loads suitable for shooting targets and not heavy hunting loads. First a word about recoil. Most of us try to have the least recoil possible. There are basically three ways to reduce recoil. Lower the shot weight. Lower the muzzle velocity. Increase gun weight. (Or a combination of these three.) A typical Stoeger Coach Gun weighs 6.5 pounds. A typical

  13. SHB p.18 That said, if the T/O and/or spotter(s) noticed it before the "beep", they should have said something. Also: SHB p.15 What also concerns me is the argument of the shooter vs. two witnessing ROs resulting in the granting of a reshoot.

  15. I've been salivating over this gun for a couple months at the gun shop/ range I go to. Well, I finally broke down and took her home! Brand new! Model 19 .357

  16. I came across some Buffalo/Indian head nickel reproduction buttons and thought they’d look neat on a gun cart. I cover the holes on the push handles, chest carry handles and umbrella brackets with 16 gauge shotgun brass and wondered how the shotgun brass would look with these buttons on the ends. I came up with a way to mount them so that they’ll never come off of the brass and installed some on my latest cart and I came across another button that I liked that I installed on Double A’s cart hole covers. Mine are the Buffalo head nickle hers are the southwest type medallion. If any of you woodw

  17. Yesterday I was watering the plants out front when a car full of teenage girls passed by and honked me up. I was thinking I was still "all that" until one hung out the window, waved and yelled, "Hi Grampa"

  18. We do not score on shooters intent - we score based on verifiable results. Why the targets are down is wholly immaterial - wind, earthquake or reset failure. 6 targets down - 6 shots fired - next shooter.

  19. Don't tell me you post all this on your FACEBOOK page - I don't care. I don't use FACEBOOK - I look at your website (and so do most of the folks with any interest in your product).

  20. Carol is starting a new cancer med today. The previous one just had too many really bad side effects for her to tolerate so she’s been off it for about 3 weeks. Hoping this one will be better.

  23. Went to Kroger couple days ago. This guy pulls right up next me to and said he was out of gasoline. I pointed to the gas station that was right there. He said he needed gas money. I do not cater to panhandlers, especially when they are driving a NEW MERCEDES!

  25. - Sights must look like sights available during the cowboy era. Bead, blade, simple post, or otherwise approved front sights (such as the XS Cowboy Express) made of materials such as steel, iron, ivory, faux ivory, brass, gold, pewter, copper, or silver are allowed. - Colors other than those of the materials referenced above or any “fluorescent” materials may not be applied to either front or rear sights. - Rear and front sights may be “blacked,” painted, or plated in the colors of the previously listed materials. If blacking, paint, or plating is applied to a revolver

  28. We had visitors while we were awake. We have been seeing them on occasion on the trail camera but never in person. My wife is on Cloud Nine! Edit: The smaller, darker lion is a kitten. Mom wanted to leave but the kitten took its time and filled its belly.
