  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 had a cousin that was a democrat. Not sure I can live that blot on family honor down.

  4. 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"

  5. 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.

  6. Shot this past Saturday in S Texas. It was hotter than a jug full of red ants! By the 6th stage I was whooped, and dehydrated. I try to make a practice of drinking a Gatorade before shooting in the morning, then at least one bottle of water per stage. Got the Gatorade drank, but only 3 bottles of water. In reality, I should have skipped stage 6, but Pride is a terrible thing! Made it thru the match, and home ok, but got a reminder to drink lots of water. Once you are “thirsty” it’s probably too late! I saw this article today. Can’t properly cite it, but certainly makes sense.

  7. And when spotting for BP shooters, standing close in behind the shooter is kind of . . . . unproductive.

  8. Last morning in Mt Rainier National Park. Sipping coffee and procrastinating on packing when Mrs Elk came by to join us.

  10. Yeah, but they ruined it with internal combustion engines, plastic bags, chemical fertilizers, and spray cans, etc.

  12. Pastimes, like shooting, are to be enjoyed; not endured.

  13. Hmm, I'll have to remember that spotter...next time I call him/her up for their turn to shoot, it might be time to say, "I'm going to go shoot, you need another TO" and leave...

  15. Good lord... And it's not FAIR that others went out and bought a SASS Legal PP. That said, I think it's wrong to have a bonus on a Stage where the bonus depends on the shooter having a specific gun...and having "Loaners" is not smart as having folk shoot guns that they are not familiar with under the TIMER...well...not advisable...

  16. Just had a guy tell he was Army 64-71. And used an M1 Garand, M14, and an M1A1 Brush Rifle, after misidentifying my carbine as a Garand. Another guy swore his basic training M1 was made by Royal Typewriter. Arrogant.

  17. I can recall a stage that I shot at Columbus my second year of shooting. There was a large pistol target positioned 8 or 10 yards behind a wooden frame that held a sheet of poster board stapled onto it. If the poster board had not been there it would have been just a big hole, some 20x30 inches. Anyway, for the shotgun on that stage the shooter was to use as many shots as they wanted to shoot a hole in the poster board until they could engage the pistol target. Was a lot of fun.
