  1. Congratulation to Damascus Jon! well done! I'm sure that you had some fun in the weather! Regards, AD
  2. Goliath i was surprised when i read your post about the SASS flags are no longer available. i got to thinking about it, and this won't help if you use it as a flag from a flagpole. We use a pair of these on the fence of the entrance to our range. if i could not get a replacement from SASS i would go to a local banner maker. A banner wound work for us, perhaps for you also. You also have an opportunity to customize your banner, perhaps adding your clubs name to the artwork. This is the direction we would go when our flags are no longer serviceable. Regards, AD

    Targets

    Hello Friends We changed thing up a bit at the texican rangers - in an sequence if a target is engaged once it is painted black, if the target is engaged twice it is painted red if a target is engaged 3 times its painted blue, if a target is engaged 4 times it is painted yellow! of course sweeps like 2,4,6,8 gives us some room for interpretation.... so, on a progressive sweep target 1 is black, target 2 is red, target 3 is blue, target 4 is yellow. first hand gun is 1, 2,2, 3,3 first shot of 2nd hand gun is on the red target! Another example - shooter reads the instructions 1, 2,2,2, 3 twice. with the targets painted black, blue, black they might see 1-3-1 based on the colors. the colors certainly brighten up the range. your mileage may vary, our shooters see the paint scheme as a help.

  8. Creeker Well done I have always enjoyed you posts, in fact I have your ‘It’s not fair’ post saved on my desktop. I read it once a quarter or more enjoy just shooting and helping from the side AD
  9. Runin iron is an excellent choice. Regards, AD
  10. RAIN MAKER Here's what i do, your milage may vary..... I use the 'lizard litter' from the pets store. pets store might, or might not, have different size crushed walnut available.... this is what i was told to use and it works for me. i make an additive of about 2oz of a car wax called Nu Finish and about 3 to 4oz on Mineral Spirits. i was expressly told to use Nu Finish! There are additives to other car waxes that contain bad additives for brass. this additive will cut your dust exponentially! How to use: i use a mason jar with a screw top. add both materials and shake till you get a 'milky' solution. if you let you secret sauce sit for some time the items will separate. if separates just shake up. next start your tumbler with only the lizard litter in the bowl. Then 'drizzle' a couple of ounces of the 'polish - mineral spirits' into the tumbler. wait a minute or two and you will see that the mixture 'coats' the media. if the walnut seems treated try a batch of brass. it the batch is still too dusty add a little more solution o the next batch. You will learn the correct amount of solution to add to get the right color of walnut before you add the brass. MAKE SURE THAT THE MEDIA HAS ABSORBED THE SOLUTION BEFORE YOU ADD THE BRASS! As your media sits in the tumbler the solution will evaporate. Just add more solution before you start! When i get around to tumble brass its a 1/2+ day effort. i usually tumble 4 to 5 of the large Dillon tumblers at a time. i treat my media once before i start and the one treatment will last for the 4 or 5 batches. i have save a bunch using this method over using treated media. hope this helps. let me know if you have any questions. Regards, AD Texas
  11. Captain: Look at the Pioneer front sight for the Uberti carbines.... big brass bead.... very well done, have them on both of my carbines. AD
