  1. I was taught the same thing (without the dots). LOOK at the center of the target. When your sights align break the shot. Then LOOK at the center of the next target (don't keep looking at the target you just shot to see if you hit it, that's over and done with), when your sights align break the shot. I'll agree.. Somewhat. When you're in the zone... situationally aware... everything just flows. And you do what I said above w/o thinking. But I don't know Enos, nor am I at his level. Maybe he goes into a trance.
  2. Great video. Also applicable to cocking the hammer in our game, especially if you sliphammer.
  3. One year at the NC State match... four match workers worked each berm (two stages were shot in each berm). Those four workers timed and spotted for every shooter in the match for the two stages shot in their berm. Two of the four were the designated TOs (because one person simply can't run the clock all the time). So, every shooter got the same "officials" on each stage. Those officials also cleared the line of brass & SG hulls and reset targets. We dubbed it the "Show up and shoot" match. Three things: 1) Lost brass match. Local Boy Scouts picked brass after
  4. Bagwell "Gambler" Bowie. 10" blade.
  5. The first time I ever encountered, "UP!" after I missed a SG target I actually stopped and turned around. Had no idea what the posse members from another area of the country were yelling about. We don't do that "around here". Might as well have been a 'cease fire' command. Normally I don't pay any attention to the peanut gallery, but when you have 7-9 people yelling something you stop.
  6. I haven't done the same exercise with .38/.357.
  7. This. If you only practice one gun it should be the shotgun. It's the only gun we load on the clock.
  8. 3.5 grains in a .38 or .357 case. American Select = Red Dot. I'll see if I can find the data where I compared/chrono'd them. They're pretty much identical.
  9. Thank you for putting this together and keeping it going, Bob. Some gave all...
  10. Agreed. But not doing cowboy 'smithing any more. That said, it's been almost a year since I've talked to him. He might have changed his mind.
  11. Phantom isn't wrong. Probably the most egregious cheating I have seen is when a troupe from a particular region showed up at a "big" match and all posse'd together. Whenever their local favorite came to the line they all grabbed the spotter sticks and refused to call misses on him. Pretty sad, really.
  12. These guys do basically the same thing that EW did. You send them a "cast" of your foot (made out of duct tape) and a tracing of your foot print and they build a boot/moccasin around it. Sod Hoppers https://sodhoppersmoccasins.com/
  13. BC (Before CAS): I started reloading in the 80's. Then there was no such thing as Federal Premium or ammo manufactured by Hornady or Nosler. Hornady and Nosler made bullets. "Factory" ammo was Winchester Super-X or Remington Core-Loct. You could not buy ammo as accurate as you could make. Today you can, but you may pay $40/box (before damnpanic). That's the "just buy it and shoot it" ammo for the hunter that fires 4-5 rounds a year. If that's you, then, yes, no need anymore. Other than the AR15 or the Chi-Com 7.62, I have never fired a factory round in a rifle I own that sho
  14. I'm sure you could have turned it around on a dime JB. Why aren't you on the BoD of Vista? "A fella familiar with Remington". Got it JB. As usual.
  15. https://www.outdoorlife.com/story/guns/wheres-all-the-damn-ammo-federal-premiums-president-has-some-answers/
  16. Where y'all stay? Should I contact Joe and arrange moe-bile akommidayshins?
  17. That's in Joo-lie, raht? We just might. Might be time to go "Unforgiven"... pull off one last job.
  18. All else aside, lots of internet forums don't allow uploading of pictures, but, instead, allow posting of links to pictures on other photo sharing sites. Nothing unusual there.
  19. My opinion also. Riding the hammer down or getting back on it before the trigger is pulled (personal timing, as DS said)... different problems.
