  1. 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.
  2. Thank you for putting this together and keeping it going, Bob. Some gave all...
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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/
  6. 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
  7. Where y'all stay? Should I contact Joe and arrange moe-bile akommidayshins?
  8. That's in Joo-lie, raht? We just might. Might be time to go "Unforgiven"... pull off one last job.
  9. 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.
  10. My opinion also. Riding the hammer down or getting back on it before the trigger is pulled (personal timing, as DS said)... different problems.
  11. And you don't even have to be a Deuce Stevens/Red River Ray class shooter to be able to shoot five out of a tuned revolver faster than a semi-auto's mechanism will allow you to shoot five.
  12. Depends on the shooter I reckon. I was told by a fellow at the top of this game, "When you have to move, Move! Shoot when you get there. If you're drawing on the run you're not moving as fast as you can." Since he's better than me, and since I can move pretty good and just shoot pretty OK, I put it into practice. Works out better for me. Exploit what you're better at.
  13. Depends on the shooter I reckon. I always felt like I could shoot 2-2-1 faster than I could shoot a 5-shot dump. So one day I went to the range with the timer and... it's twue, it's twue!
  14. Dig'em Deep pulls 2 with left hand & 2 with right hand. He goes over the top with the left hand ammo for first 2 shots and then finishes with the 2 rounds in his right hand. He's "fairly" quick with a '97.
  15. What Creeker & Boggus said. Unless shooting BP or subs, of course. Non-CAS/competition guns less than that. A clean, oiled bore is going to give you a different POI. Enough that it matters when your target is way out yonder.
  16. Likewise. Shoot a PM to Sassy Teton Lady. She and Deadwood Woody are NYX dealers.
  17. Years ago I conspired with Bob Mernickle to build me traditional-looking strong side holsters with 2" drop. They look a LOT like his HP1 REF1 model.
  18. The birdshead grip will cause the gun to roll more during recoil. More of a "problem" with .45 than .38, obviously, but worth mentioning.
