  1. I was wondering about the Sea Cow just yesterday. Then came across this post today. Funny how that works. Glad to hear he came through the surgery. To ornery and cantankerous not to. But behind all that bluster is a good man.
  2. '97s have this unique feature... you stop the slide travel a nano-meter short of completely home and try to start rearward and it locks up like this. OLG said "firmly push". You gotta push like he__. One time I had to put the muzzle on the ground (on a board) and put full body weight into it before the slide would "snap" that final nano-meter forward. I've seen it happen to shooters of all walks. YMMV.
  3. Busy as all get-out. I didn't know getting ready to retire would be so much work.
  4. Seems like it's settled.
  5. Tens of thousands? Every month? Like the "tens of thousands" of people that shoot CAS every month that don't even make a blip on the radar when it comes to the decisions that the industry giants make? I could not find a list of match results for the "nationals" at the NMRLA site, so I really have no idea what a "national" event even looks like... other than it seems to take place over ten days.
  6. A very real concern. Outside of CAS there is pretty much ZERO demand for percussion caps. Except maybe that one guy still hunting with a TC Hawken.
  7. Shooting through windows/doors and over props... you see people "belly up" to the window - pretty much hanging out of it. When done with the shooting sequence whadda ya gotta do? Back up. Unless you have to get in the opening to see the targets, stand back and shoot through the opening. IOW, when you can, minimize footwork.
  8. True. I once asked Red River Ray why he didn't draw on the move or load SG on the move when the circumstances allowed it. He said, "When it's time to move, you move. You shoot when you get there."
  9. One shot drills. Come up with a gun sequences and shoot the "stages" with one shot from each gun (if you shoot a SxS load two because that's huge part of the SG transition). Time yourself. However, doing this dry-firing is a really good way to get into a bad habit of missing the first shot out of the gun, so live fire is better - if you miss you start over. SG is the only gun we load on the clock. If there's anything at all to be gained there, work on that first.
  10. A "competitive" shooter shot the rifle, discarded it on the table, then started to the next position. As the TO passed the rifle he reached down and closed the lever.
  11. See Pettifogger's post above. You have to be wary of stage instructions that say, "Shoot first pistol. Holster. Shoot second pistol..." Yes, stage instructions like that are discouraged, but they happen.
  12. I thought the same thing Yul. Well said Creeker. You reminded me of something my late father said when we were discussing "the point" of funerals. He said, "You don't do it for the one that has passed on. You do it for those that are still here."
  13. Would love to, but it's not in the cards this year.
