  1. Six I own a 240 Weatheryby. It is a very good cartridge and an accurate rifle. I’ve owned since 1972. Of course I glassed the action and floated the barrel. I shot a lot of deer, ground hogs and coyote with it. Most accurate load was with Speer 105 gr bullet. Longer Bullets worked best in my rifle due to long free bore Weatherby’s have. Can’t remember powder but at the time it was slowest Hodgedon made. I’ll dig out my old data and get back to you. Whiskey
  2. Now I'm beginning to understand. You use to beat me by 20 seconds a stage but at the TN State and SE Regional you beat me by 21 seconds a stage. What's worse is you eat 2 nanner splits by the time I eat 3/4's of mine. How much money did you spend on that modified spoon. No wait I just had a thought. Get 2 of them modified spoons and in 2 years we'll all beat you by at least 5 seconds a stage. Yes that's the ticket mods are good TNW. Whiskey
  3. Not only is Tucker a fine craftsman he is also a good fun cowboy to have on your posse. Class act with everything he does. Whiskey
  4. Anytime it's above 40 F , below 90 F and no rain a day at the range is a fun day.
  5. In a total time match percent penalty per stage does not matter. It is the percentage for the entire match. I'll use RSE as an example. Randy had two misses for the entire match his total time was 242.53. Randy had 2 misses so if he had shot clean his total time would have been 232..53. Two misses was 4.3% penalty for the entire match for Randy. Percent penalty for a miss is based on the shooter's own ability for the entire match using total time. This method holds true if all shooters shot the same raw time and number of misses determined the results. Just another way to look at the data. I do agree with Williams the fastest shooter with the fewest misses will win a total time match. Whiskey
  6. We did this so folks won't have to mess with the sights on their favorite lever or pump .22. So bring that go to pest control .22 and have a good time. I agree TW is off but I don't think those white diamonds had anything to do with it. I tend to think the delivery doctor dropped him on his head.
  7. I’m coming. This is a great match. Charlie came to Wartrace Aug 3rd. I had the privilege of being on his posse. It was hot and humid. He kept an eye on this old fat man to be sure I was ok. I can’t thank him enough. Great shooter but a greater cowboy. Whiskey
  8. This is a picture of the AD laying on top of the Bond. Hinge pins are lined up.
  9. I have an AD in 38 and a Bond Mini in 45. The AD is a very nice gun and does resemble the original Remington. With the AD you must remember to manually set the safety on before closing the gun. The safety automatically disengages when cocked. The AD I have only hits half the top firing pin with the hammer shuttle. It finally broke and wouldn't fire the top barrel. Ordered a replacement part and it only engages half the top firing pin. I have examined 2 other AD 38"s at gun shows and they had the same issue. However it is a beautiful gun and I had mine engraved by Kelley Lassiter and put real elephant ivory grips on it. Very beautiful river boat gambler gun now. The Bond Mini 45 is about the same size as the AD. The Bond Mini has shorter barrels and is slightly heavier. Recoil on the 45 Colt Mini is stiff but controllable. I'm going to order 38 barrels for it. With the rebounding hammers you don't have to engage the safety before closing the gun. But with the Bond it is manual on and manual off safety. I haven't encountered a weakness with the Bond. The Bond might come with the competition kit installed but I still cut 2 coils off the main spring to improve hammer pull. The Bond still fires reliably. Shooting a 16" plate target at 5 yds isn't an issue with either gun. Barrels do shoot to different points of impact on both guns but not enough to be an issue at 5 yds. I do prefer the Bond Mini over the AD. I do like derringers and have shot both of mine a lot but not in competition. I just shoot them at the range plinking etc. sometimes as many as 200 rounds through each gun. I will take some pictures of the guns side by side. Never have posted pictures before but if I can't figure it out I will email pictures to folks that know how. Whiskey
