  1. I tried the extra power base pin springs as well, still had a pin jumping. Locking pins from Power Custom... no more pin probs. Pig or not, it worked. 8 (: )
  2. Most likely you will have to do a little work on the frame (sorry). The factory hole for the base pin locking pin usually has a burr on it and with the tolerances being so tight on the new base pin, this burr will interfere.
  3. The value of the prizes is not the problem, it's how they're distributed. NICE buckles and plaques are great for winners, but if you have big $$ prizes, they should be door prizes or raffles. If Joe Shooter thinks he has a chance at a big prize, he will happily travel and attend the match. If the big items are for winners only, most average shooters will not be as interested. My opinion.
  4. Just making the point that I have no formal (or informal) training as a gunsmith; completely self-taught.
  5. Ok, "trained" gunsmith. You get the point... don't you?
  6. Saw some Marlins at Sportsman's Warehouse in NM at just under $1000. Kinda pricey, but if they are improving, that's great.
  7. Good to hear. Hopefully the firearm manufacturers (especially the American ones) are listening to their customers and making the appropriate changes to their products. Sounds promising, thanks Deuce.
  8. +1, I have very light sensitive eyes and squint quite a bit on sunny days, have to have dark tint. And on cloudy days, the amber seems to work best. I have changed during a match according to inside/outside shooting scenarios and sunny/cloudy situations. Like GJ says, even though you will get lots of input, you need to "see" what works best for your eyes.
  9. Not to mention the safety aspect of it. What happens if someone is hurt and the ambulance is greeted by a locked gate. Not smart. Didn't mean to ruffle feathers, just meant it was kind of odd to hold folks until teardown is over. I, absolutely think folks should help with teardown in some capacity, but that's a little extreme. My opinion.
  10. I can tell ya this, that plastic (plexi) hopper on my 550C sure does hold some static. I'm guessin' Dillon knows what's up.
  11. Ah hahahaha, I live in Georgia, my humidity is ALWAYS high! If powder companies thought the static issue was so great, they wouldn't use plastic bottles. Just a thought.
  12. I have a bit of ESD experience as well (30 yrs Air Force calibration) and you have to take many steps, as SD has said and shown to really have a true static free environment. Wonder how many static incidents folks have had igniting powder or primers. I have never heard of any, BP or not.
  13. Marlin safety... What's that? Still have T-bars btw, just haven't decided whether I want em gone or not. I do all my own work (oh my, I'm not a certified gunsmith. More liability!) and haven't ventured into transfer bar removal yet. My lg frame Vaqueros are pretty slick though...
  14. Because I said it was an "interesting policy" to lock folks in? And the word "yikes"? You had better look at other responses. And that "interesting policy" WILL drive folks away. I had other descriptions for this club's actions, but I kept them to myself.
  15. Folks sue. And you could find a lawyer to sue over just about anything. We load our own ammo, correct? And I'm sure the dangerous "killing rounds" we load are much more dangerous than the "safe" factory loaded rounds. Silly, huh? So are many frivolous lawsuits, but lawyers try em and judges convict. Hear about the guy (I know there was more than one) that broke in through the ceiling of the liquor store, fell and injured his back and sued the store owner? Ridiculous! If you're afraid of legal liability over removing your transfer bars, you had better sell all your guns. They're dangerous, don't ya know.
