  1. The ROC has discussed allowing accommodations for differently-abled shooters in the past. The SHB used to include a statement regarding doing so, but it is no longer there. . The "final word" in the ROC discussions was that any accommodations for shooters with physical limitations is up to the Match Director of an individual match. That would include equipment modifications, footwear, as well as providing "hands-on" assistance. (an example of which would be having a helper provide assistance for a wheelchair-bound shooter as a "pusher"). I've personally shot mat

  2. I had the pleasure of shooting with Oklahoma Dee at Comancheria Days last week. For those of you that don’t know Dee he is a very accomplished shooter and is a always a favorite for not only catagory but overall at any match he goes to. Last Friday, 1st stage, first gun, he missed his holster. Dropped gun, SDQ. He cleared his guns, brought then to his cart, came back to line ready to resume posse chores. Never a sour look, a pout, or anything but smiles and helpful for the rest of the match, even though he knew he was out of the running for any awards. I hope if I ever have a simila

  3. I wonder why... A farmer walked into an attorney's office wanting to file for a divorce. The attorney asked, "May I help you?" The farmer said, "Yea, I want to get one of those dayvorces." The attorney said, "Well, do you have any grounds?" The farmer said, "Yea, I got about 140 acres." The attorney said, "No, you don't understand, do you have a case?" The farmer said, "No, I don't have a Case, but I have a John Deere." The attorney said, "No, you don't understand. I mean do you have a grudge?" The farmer said, "Yea, I got a grudge. That's where I park my John Deere." Th

  5. I started hanging out on this forum and shooting SASS nigh on 20 years ago. Back then I was a 2LT at Fort Carson. You guys and all my shooting partners seemed old to me, because the average age of this game is quite a bit older than other shooting sports. After a few years on active duty I switched over to the Reserves and have kept going. I have since retired from the career in civilian law enforcement I left active duty to pursue, and have begun another career. But I'm still in the army as a reservist, and now I have soldiers who have no memory of 9-11, nor what it means to fight from t

  9. I'm now retired. Yesterday was my last official day of going to work. To top it off, it was also my Birthday. Freedom has never felt so good. The rest of my life now will be to forever continue to be devoted to my lovely wife who had my back all these working years.

  11. First off I fully support those that wish to get vaccinated....if I were in different circumstances I would likely get one. I fully support having the choice. What concerns me is the increasing number of articles and sentiment directed at those that are not getting vaccinated. Just read a new article that says those that don't get a vaccine are "free riders", "moochers", and "uninformed" and that people and voters should treat us as "what we are: dangerous to the health of their communities". This is just flat out wrong. Ive said it before and I will say it again.

  12. I hear all the time people shying away from ribbed shotgun hulls because they don't shuck reliably in SXS shotguns or that you cannot shoot steel based hulls because they don't reliably shuck. These myths need to be examined more closely. The issue is not the fact that the hull is ribbed; it has to do with how well the shell is constructed. I weighed 6 different kinds of shotgun hulls. All had been fired and still had the expended primer seated in the hull. This is what I found. Winchester AA new 2 piece smooth hull = 129 grains Remington STS smo

  13. Something that I ran across on Facebook. This is a great story. The Black Telephone Those of us old enough to remember when the phone was wired to the wall, usually in the kitchen, can relate to this story. I loved this read. When I was a young boy, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the telephone, but used to listen with fascination when my mother talked to it. Then I discovered that somewhere inside

  15. So yesterday I went to the club’s rifle range to sight in a Marlin 1895 in 45-70. It’s been trimmed to 16.5”, magnaported, refinished, and sports a compact Leopoldo Great brush gun. Anyway, we were all set up and waiting for 9:00am to go hot. I was the only non-black rifle on the line, which is not unusual any more. One guy came down and asked with all sincerity, “What is that?” When realizing he was serious, I let him handle the gun and showed him the cartridge. He was sufficiently curious and impressed, especially after the first round. He pulled up a picture

  17. Its posts like this that make me tear up. In Southern Nevada we had a beloved shooter known as Know Justice. Know Justice developed brain cancer (a battle that he eventually lost) and underwent treatment which badly affected his balance, strength and some coordination. He considered giving up shooting, so he would not slow the posse or inconvenience anyone. We refused to let that happen and I became Know Justices designated timer. We would proceed thru the stages with my hand firmly wrapped in his suspenders to support him. When he was no longer able to hold hi

  20. Last year was strange and downright bad for most of us. Covid wasn't MY nemesis but rather heart issues and heart surgery. Anyhow, I hope to shoot my first match since last summer. Doctor thinks I'm ready to get active EXCEPT... No Shotgun. I got the o.k. from Ocoee Rangers to join them this Saturday without having to shoot my SG. Looks like good weather to visit some great folks. I'll also be funnin and gunnin with my Henry .22 Look for me to come in last cause 20 second penalties (no SG) will be the norm for me on Saturday.

  21. After 20 years of shooting this game I'd be lying if I said my opinion on this topic hasn't changed over time. I remember the first time I set a pistol target at 7 yards at the club that I started at. I thought that some of the "old guard" were gonna kill me LOL......as in it was too close. But a 125gr bullet doing 800 fps. was ultra "gamey" at that time as well. I know I certainly pushed the "big and close" agenda. Bought bigger steel, 7 yards turned into 5. Everyone started judging the quality of a match by clean shooter percentages. I think there is a sweet spot somewhere in there. Borderto

  24. Today is her birthday. Didn't do anything special, had to get a new vehicle (OK, ended up with a new car for her birthday out of necessity) so things are tight. I was looking for something to fill in some corners and saw the sack of pancake mix. She loves pancakes. So I grabbed it and whipped up 4 layer birthday (pan)cake. Handed it to her over her shoulder as she was watching Food Network, gave her a hearty "Happy birthday!" Her face lit up "This is perfect!" I like giving her little surprises.

  28. An Englishman and an Irishman go to a bakery. The Englishman steals three buns and puts them into his pockets and leaves. He says to the Irishman: “That took great skill and guile to steal those buns. The owner didn’t even see me.” “That’s just simple thievery,” the Irishman replied. “I’ll show you how to do it the honest way and get the same results.” The Irishman then proceeded to call out the owner of the bakery and says: “Sir, I want to show you a magic trick.” The owner was intrigued so he came over to see the magic trick. The Irishman asked him for a bun and then he procee

We are going to be at St Mary’s in Rochester....part of Mayo Clinic...so she should be in good hands...but prayers will definitely be appreciated. Thank you Old Man Graybeard Thank you everyone. I believe the prayers have helped. After a little over a 10 hour surgery,Deb is in recovery and then ICU for a day or two, then a regular room for several days. Please keep the prayers comin
