  1. There's historical artifacts that substantiate the Norse were here way before Columbus. And there are artifacts indicating the Chinese/Asians were along our west coast, way, way before anyone. The Italians get all bothered about this. We didn't become the "America's" until Amerigo Vespucci got involved in the early 1500's. So Columbus didn't discover America!
  2. They were used in sand rails. Turbo charged and used the VW transaxel. They hauled butt. Somewhere in the mid 80's they put one in the T-Bird with a turbo. 1 or 2 years.
  3. The 50’s hot rod purists wear their jeans rolled like this.
  4. A tiny person with a big gun will kill just as dead as a big person with a big gun.
  5. One of our better shooters 73 in 38 special. He uses a shortened round, as in the bullet is seated much deeper. He ground some additional clearance in the elevator, and they drop right in.
  6. Open Range redone as a small band of cowboys transitioning into cowgirls herding feral cats!
  7. I lived in So. Cal for 47 years. We got some really big gully washers. Water from curb to curb.
  8. Read Charley Harley's post. He doesn't share the positive view on cats.
  9. What exactly did you expect the outcome of your post would be? It's just you complaining about cats. Same issue with dogs killing squirrels, or cats or? Dogs constantly barking day and night. We all could pile on about "pets" and how their owners manage them. But it would be to no avail.
  10. Ahhhhhh, Christianity. The religion of love and acceptance! Funny both aspects of the religion came from the same book!
  11. The trend here is to blame it on COVID and reloading supplies. But there have been many posts over the last 5 or 6 years talking about declining membership. We've seen numerous posts about the need to market, attract "young" shooters, breath some new life into a rasping patient. Our 3 local clubs have been declining in attendance and member numbers over the last 6 years. The things I mentioned in my original post were all occurring before the plague and supply thing started. Declining membership, declining attendance, no more camping, pot lucks, picnics, Xmas parties and socializing has been an issue for us way before the plague.
  12. If you look at WC there really isn't a good way to mount holsters to the chair. Especially sports chairs. What we did; Shooter stages all guns on the table or shelf. Extra rounds can be staged at the location for the rifle/shotgun. Our LT and ULT are high. We added a card table to each that worked. Our windows are low enough to allow them to stage, shoot and re-stage. We used to have soft ground at the storefronts. We suggested the shooter bring someone to help push them. We later added concrete or wood because our shooters didn't like stepping mud or slipping on ice. We had a shooter volunteer to carry guns to and from the stage. Ike
  13. We need to offer out thoughts and opinions based on how we feel about the issue. Taking into consideration not calling anyone a low down side winder. But certain posts, that surface every year, can chap some peoples hide. Mine are; "we need to see the financials', how do we get "young" people involved, and why doesn't SASS do better job of promoting.!
  14. AL, Rotary, Lions and the NRA are private non-profit. They publish annual reports. Which the members can get a copy of. Or it's published in their annual report. And if you've seen one it's literally 1 page long. Income, expenses, bottom line. SASS is a corporation I think they were trying to go 501 c3 also. They don't owe the members any kind of annual financial report. The issue in the past is members wanted to know what salaries and bonuses were being paid. As in SASS in barely making it because they were bleeding it dry. I think this is about the 10th time I've made this clarification.
  15. Hang fire, primer goes bang....then round goes off???
  16. Very good movie. The transition of Bale from beginning to the end was well done.
  17. So in all my years for shooting SASS, 20+, I've never seen or heard of a protest over any of the items discussed. I wouldn't think that the Chronicle would publish John Wayne SASS# 123,456 had his loads challenged. They were tested and found not to meet the SHB criteria.
  18. I'll still ask, at State, national and international, EOT, matches do they test smokeless and or BP loads. The answer is not unless another shooter protests and has to pay.
  19. So EOT and maybe the Former Winter Range! BP was tested. How about the smokeless criteria being tested? Nope.
  20. I just checked and everything said out of stock
