  1. An elderly bloke was invited to an old mate's home for dinner one evening. He was amazed by the way his mate preceded every request to his missus with endearing terms such as: Darling, Honey, My Love, Pumpkin, Sweetheart, etc.. The couple had been married almost 50 years and, clearly, they were still very much in love. When the missus went back to the kitchen to get more beers for the blokes, the old bloke leaned over to his host, and said: "I think it's so amazing that, after all these years, you still call your missus those loving pet names." The old bloke hung his head. "I have to tell you the truth," he said. "Her name slipped my mind about 10 years ago, -- and I'm scared to death to ask her what it is."

  2. 1st. Reholstering pistols with the intent to engage another target sequence as you have described will, at the least, earn you a P. 2nd. Getting into a habit of always having to start with one hand or another takes away so many transition options. Also, you method does not take into consideration a string with a gunfighter may find it advantageous to change leads in the middle of the string. Or so many more options. Just a couple things to think about...

  4. Are there times when you have forgotten how to count to 10? What is the penalty when that happens to a gunfighter?

  5. Came across this old pic we had taken at the fair long ago. Somewhere around 1987. I was about 28 or so. Pic wasn’t the greatest to start with and time has not helped it, but hopefully good for a grin. JHC

  6. Bruce and Robbo are in the pub, having a drink and discussing the many health benefits of beer.Bruce says: Look Robbo, this is how it works mate:A mob of kangaroos can only move as fast as the slowest roo. And when the mob is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the mob as a whole, because the average speed and health of the whole mob keeps improving by the elimination of the weakest members.In exactly the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we all know, intake of alcohol kills your brain cells. But naturally, it attacks your slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making your brain a faster and more efficient machine.And that, Robbo, is why you always feel much smarter after a coupla beers !

  7. I am a GF and want to shoot GF. I'll shoot DD if I have to, but I won't go back to matches where I have to do it a lot. I also don't like to stage revolvers on a prop and will probably shoot DD rather than do that. I'm OK with split pistol strings where the revolvers don't have to leave my hands. Shoot a five shot string, move with hammers down on spent cartridges, and shoot 5 more are fine. That adds variety, and lets me shoot GF.

  9. Two "seasoned citizen" ladies are out for an afternoon drive, happily chatting as they merrily roll along through the countryside. Eventually, the driver came to realize that she was pretty much supporting the conversation alone; her passenger had not spoken for several minutes. Finally, she looked at her and asked, "Is there anything wrong, my dear...? You've become awfully quiet!" The passenger gave her a forlorn look, and finally said "I just don't know how to say this. I am so ashamed! We've been dear friends since we were children, and I suddenly realized that I cannot recall your name!" The lady driving was shocked. Her head swiveled from watching the road and looking at her friend, who was sitting there gazing back expectantly. Finally, she sighed, and asked... "Um... how soon do you need to know?"

  11. Follow-up to @PaleWolf Brunelle, #2495L post... someone asked me if the stage instructions must specify that a gunfighter is allowed to stage his pistols after shooting the first 5, in a stage that has split pistols. the answer there is since the gunfighter category rules specifically state that they may be staged in that scenario, the instructions are not required to state it. However, participants shooting in the gunfighter style are the only ones afforded this opportunity.

  15. It was determined to be a potential safety issue due to the possibility of a GF-style shooter inadvertently cocking one of the revolvers for a 6th shot. Allowing the holstering of both revolvers mid-string (or between shooting strings) would make it extremely difficult for the T/O to observe that neither revolver is holstered with a cocked hammer.

  18. This old man had a friend visiting him, and they are sitting in the living room talking about this, that and the other thing. The man starts telling his friend about the restaurant he and his wife had dinner at the night before. About how attentive the staff was, about how delicious the food was, and about how reasonable prices were. His friend appeared amazed, and ask the name of this perfect restaurant. The man thought a moment and then said, "There's a flower. It's red, it smells very nice, is comes on a long stem with thorns. You give it to someone you love." The friend said, "A rose?" The man snapped his fingers and said, "That's it". Then turning towards the kitchen he yelled, "Hey Rose, where did we go to eat last night?"

  23. Sounds like you are simply out-of-touch with the market and have unrealistic expectations. It is not 10 or 15 years ago. It is now.

  24. Helen Brimstone and I saw Dune tonight - the first movie in about two years. I thought it was well done - they nailed the "thopters!" Two things, though: First, I would really recommend reading the book - or at least a synopsis - before seeing the film. Ms Brimstone enjoyed the film, but whe was fairly lost. Second, be aware that this is PART ONE! It is NOT a full rendition of the book; the second half of the story is scheduled for release October 2023. Even so, it's still a shade over 2 1/2 hours runtime.

  26. WHAT? As Branchwater mentioned..... You'll earn a 'P', then it becomes progressive if you continue shooting in this manner. ..........Widder

  27. ... oh now you've gone and reminded my growlin' gut it hasn't had anything dropped into its abyss for at least two years ... or since suppertime ... ... now I've got to go fix breakfast ... What was it the sainted gunwriter said he generally fixed? A pound of bacon fried up, a dozen eggs fried in the grease, a loaf of bread toasted up with real butter and a pot of coffee? Pardon me. I've got to go rattle them pots and pans. (Daggone, that gravy fountain does look good!)

  28. I kind of agree, but I think it's not so much other issues being more important as it is other promises being more important to them. But what anti-Constitutionalists tend to miss is that the 2nd Amendment is a litmus test of politicians' perceptions of the relationship between the state and the People. Regardless of what a politician promises in a campaign, in office he or she will follow their true character. A politician who supports the 2nd is more likely to respect what, 'consent of the governed,' really means.

  34. Pinky and I shoot 20”, but I wouldn’t mind going shorter. I think they would clear props better when moving laterally. I prefer to stand back from windows, doors, etc. while shooting, but sometimes depending on where targets are you have to get closer to the props to see your targets.
