    I was grumpily walking on the treadmill this afternoon and noticed that the walking belt was slightly off center. So I got out the manual and looked up how to correct it. Pretty simple. Start it up let it run at 1-1.5 mph and turn the left adjusting screw until the belt moves back to center. Got ‘r done. Then I noticed from the digital info panel that I had burnt several calories while on the floor adjusting the belt! It counts your calories whether you’re on it or not! My pulse was really low too according to the screen. This changes everything. Turn on the treadmill, sit down in a chair and watch those calories burn away. Win win exercise program the way I see it. Time for some pizza.

    You did the right thing Jack, if I notice something I always say something to the MD or Posse leader. The fact that this guy said he was the "current state champ" shows you right there that he's full of himself. He probably knew he was wrong but since he's been getting away with it he'll keep doing it!

    Look at the bright side of this: the manufacturers were all paid for their goods. Now, they have $5 million in merchandise they no longer have to warranty, nor insure against product liability lawsuits. Dicks should do this every year, and help keep the gun manufacturers solvent. Ruger, et al, could ship all of those that fail quality control inspections directly to Dicks. Ruger can get paid for their bum steers, Dicks can virtue signal by destroying them. Sounds like a win-win to me...

    We just want to thank The Notch, Blazing Vaquero, and Sonora Blaze for stepping up in a big way and helping us support some great charities. Thank you Tn. Tall and Rio Drifter for coming up with “ Tip the boot”. A charity that was started o try and help the children in our local communities. We as cowboys are so fortunate to be able to travel and do what we do. We have big hearts and some big pocketbooks. So if you see a pair of red cowboy boots in a glass container at your shoot, please drop a dollar for a child. Thank you to the folks at black gold and comin at cha for stepping up. And remember, please, “tip the boot”!

    My new Henry Arms H011 New Classic 1860 Henry in .44-40 is the perfect match for my Kirst/Pietta 1860 cartridge conversions. (The H011 is my upcoming January Cowboy Chronicle article) I've been a Henry shooter since I started SASS in 1994, starting with Uberti and Navy Arms (pre-Uberti - US made) until I found the Henry Repeating Arms one. If the Henry Arms 1860 is a Mercedes, the Uberti, which would be a Chevy! The HRA is the slickest, smoothest, from the factory 1860 Henry I have ever had. The fit and finish, the bluing, and polished brass are the richest and nicest of any rifle I have ever owned. Before I got it, the Marlin 1894 Century Limited .44-40 with Doug Turnbull color case and engraving held that spot.

    The premise was a good idea. The name, "Cone of Safety", killed it before it had a chance. I think I know the backstory Allie. The shooter needs room to manipulate the stage safely, without being called for breaking the 170, regardless if it's a cross draw or strong side. If there was a rule giving the shooter, just guesstimating, 5 feet, except for the TO that's directly behind the shooter. There would be less guessing whether the shooter broke the 170 or not. If a counter is crowding the line and right next to the shooter they are going to see things differently than if they were 5 feet behind the shooter. I've seen hard asses call 170 violations on shooters just because the are using cross draw holsters and they don't call the strong side shooters when they miss their holsters and point the pistol behind them which appears to be much more dangerous than the cross draw. Never have I seen a strong side shooter get called for missing a holster and breaking the 170. By giving the shooter 5 feet of room and forcing the spotters to call only blatant violations it would make it easier to call a real 170 violation than someone guessing they saw an infraction because they were too close to the firing line. Give the shooter some room.

    Why do some people who post on forums act as though they are texting someone? They use a group of letters instead of typing out the correct words. If you are too lazy to type the correct words I am too lazy to try and figure out what you are saying. There my complaint of the day.

    I loved my job. But, I was tired. I counted down the last 1100 days because it annoyed one of my partners who had more time to wait than I did. I ended up having a medical issue and retired earlier than I planned. The good thing is that I have free medical and dental, and I am making the same amount of take home pay as I made working. I am blessed. I retired at 53 years old.

    Lone Ranger and Tonto were riding along when they were suddenly surrounded by 100 indians that looked mean as hell. The Lone Ranger said to Tonto,"Kemosabe, what should we do?" Tonto said, " What do you mean Kemosabe, white man"?

    Actually, my surgery was to remove an implant that was installed incorrectly several years ago. The anchor was too long and protruded into my sinus cavity, causing a number of issues like infections. The concern was how bad the infection was and if they could remove the anchor without having to break the jaw bone. The infection was worse than they thought but they didn't have to break the jaw to remove the anchor. Yes the screams of my credit card could be heard into the parking lot. I'm glad to have this whole situation behind me and can move forward. No I will not be replacing that implant, or having any other implants installed. Ever.

    The brother understands it was a stupid mistake and she needs to be punished, but she didn't do it out of malice. The mom unfortunately seems eager to get her 15 minutes and $15 million out of this.

    I plan to retire at 62 in 2023. My boss is wants to retire in 2 years. Everyday, lately, he tells me “Tom, you are here to retire in 4 years. Just keep that in mind. All the rest of this stuff is not worth worrying about.” Good advice but hard to heed sometimes. Maybe I need some of those inspirational posters in my office...

    I'm suddenly picturing some of our cowpokes standing there, tip of their tongue sticking out in concentration... Stub of a pencil in their trembling hands... A hesitant line starting and stopping as they think and rethink the angle... Paper worn thin with charcoal smudges and covered with shards of red rubber residue as the eraser is over utilized again and again... Beads of sweat forming on their brow as they struggle to draw a pretty much straight line.

    I owe everyone an apology. The rumitize hit me hard this afternoon. I’m painless now but there are a couple of empty spots on the shelf.

    I see just as many violations with strong side holsters. If one misses their holster, and it goes over the back of the holster (up range) it's worse than any cross draw. Seen it many, many times at WR and other matches. I did mention it to members of the ROC and was told to call the infraction. That's a quick way to become hated by a whole bunch of shooters. We either need to give the shooters some leeway or make everything go back to the table. Thus, the "Cone of Safety". If 25% of the shooters are called for breaking the 170 at a match, how many of those won't come back to the range because they thought they were wrongly penalized for something that everyone else does? We need to look for solutions not trash talk others regarding this and come up with a common sense resolution. No one wants to be given a penalty for a questionable call, the solution needs to go to the favor of the shooter. This is another reason no one wants to volunteer to be a posse leader, they don't want to be the final say on an infraction that will make one an instant bad guy. Think about this. We can pull our loaded pistols and move laterally and down range all day long. If a shooter pulls a pistol as they are moving left to right from their right holster are they breaking the 180, I don't think it's physically possible to not break the 170 in this condition. We need to give the shooters room to move, and reholster safely, and continue to be safe for all others. I'm thinking we do give the shooters a little room on this now, it just needs to be clarified and named something just to keep things the same across the SASS world. A blatant infraction is one thing, a questionable call we can't all agree on is another.

    One of the advantages of aging is the wisdom and the ability to withstand and survive adversity and tragedies. But one of the problems of aging is that the older we get the more tragedy we have to withstand. You and your loved ones will be in my thoughts.
