  1. Get TV stations to come to a match or practice day, film and interview people. Get with sporting goods stores like Bass Pro and have cowboys show up dressed up and share experiences with possible future shooters. Have your club have a table at gun shows where club members show up dressed up and have pictures of matches and clubs nearby. Get with your friends that have kids or grandkids and bring them out to shoot at matches or practice days. If they can't afford the guns and ammo, furnish for them to let them try it and offer to share your "spare or backup guns" which many of us have available. Get with any youth organization that you can and offer to have a day at your club where they can try out shooting under supervision and with borrowed guns and ammo your club member provide.
  2. As others have mentioned, don't buy any guns until you've tried out several at matches. Yes, try out whatever guns people are offering you to try. Bring ammo or at least offer to pay for the ammo you use. Talk with lots of shooters and get their reasons for using what they use. Good leather is a must. See what others are using and decide what will work best for you before you buy. Cheap leather is a waste of money for many reasons. While a hat isn't a must, it is a good idea. WELCOME to the greatest game there is where almost everyone is friendly and willing to help you out.
  3. Yes, they are expensive, BUT living in the HOT Gulf Coast of Texas and having been through more power outages due to hurricanes than I have liked, I decided when I could afford one to get one. It is a Generac and has come on several times when the power was out for hours at a time due to whatever reason. The last time was 4 hours during August when CenterPoint was working on the power lines and had notified us in advance. Since I'm retired and home all day almost everyday, 4 hours during August without power would have been unbearable. It comes on for 15 minutes every week and I have Generac to service every year or six months. Get an estimate from at least two or three dealers as each may tell you different things. Decide how much you really need, but get one large enough to keep you comfortable whether it is to keep cool or warm. Also check with your homeowner's association to see if you need their approval before installation. Several of my neighbors now have Generac generators also so when the power does go out, we are the only ones with lights and air conditioning when it is 90+ degrees in August at 9 p.m.
  4. Every time I watched, even for a few minutes, the Astros started being tied or losing, so I quit watching and they WON!!!!!!
  5. I won't watch any of the games because when I do, the Astros (or whoever I want to win) lose.
  6. Dodge trucks won more often than the other trucks.
  7. I also liked Windows 7 better than Windows 10, but was forced to start using 10 when I got a new desktop. I knew how to do everything in 7, and it seemed much easier to use than 10. Now I just flounder around sometimes, sometimes find what I need, and other times, just give up.
  8. Hope she doesn't spot regularly. I would have gone with 4 because two spotters agreed that 4 were missed. One did not agree that 5 were missed, and one was NOT spotting at all.
  9. Big and close doesn't guarantee all hits on a target. I've seen a target the size of a buffalo (BIG) at pistol distance and watched shooters "walk up and off" that huge target.
  10. Lorelei married the young dentist, Roy. His practice was very successful and Roy even hired another dentist when the practice became too large for only one dentist to handle. They had two children, a girl, Jeanette, and a boy, Lee Walton. The town was so progressive they allowed Lorelei to continue teaching even after she got married which was almost unheard of back then. Years later, when the town had grown so much that it needed more than one school, Lorelei retired from teaching, but the town made her superintendent of the Stone Creek school system so she continued to watch over the students until she finally retired at age 70. After she retired, the elementary school was named after her. She and Roy still enjoyed hunting together and target practicing for many years.
  11. Joined in 2003, but went life within a year. Didn't get a 15 year pin last year which (correct me if I'm wrong) is when they started giving out the pins I think. Is it because lifers don't get pins. Have even upgraded my SASS membership.
  12. "Well, with all the things that have been going on lately, the watches and everything, we haven't had much time to spend together. We've had dinner at the hotel once and at the café a few times. We did some practice pistol shooting once right after he arrived, but that's is so far. Hopefully things will settle down soon and we'll see how it goes." Lorelei answered to Sarah Jane's question. Lorelei had heard of people hearing voices from the dead and about "spirits" watching over people. She had aunts and uncles that lived in Kentucky that came to visit once when she was a child and heard them discussing "talking to the spirits watching over them and of having 'visions'." They seemed to accept these happenings without fear or question, sort of like having faith in God, so maybe this was a common thing for some people in especially trying situations.
