  1. Google maps says 14 hrs and 23 min from here. Then again, I ain't doin' 90 in a Camaro. Still, one long day and yer there.
  2. Wait... did you call me a great mind? Lol Love ya bud
  3. The weather in Phx CAN be inclement in Feb... It WILL be hot in June. That alone may keep some from coming. We had a little rain in 2017 but otherwise, it was great!
  4. I hope these moves will only bring in more shooters that couldn't or didn't want to travel as far west as NM or Phx. I did get out to WR in '17, but had to fly. Not that much of a deal but it may be for some folks. OKC does seem like more of a central location though.
  5. Let's hope Ruger has a little bit more to them than something like that. I think they do.
  6. I sure hope with EOT moving to Phoenix, that they keep the same date range of WR. Phoenix in June can be BRUTAL!
  7. I see this as a big positive. At least this part of Remington didn't go to some investment group that will eventually dissolve it. Hopefully we will soon see some fine quality firearms coming from Marlin. I hear the ones recently have been better and I hope we can see further improvements and yes, maybe some new models. Yay!
  8. My "intent" is to always lose money on a deal... usually works out.
  9. Very sad indeed... let's buy it! I'm in; always loved AZ anyway.
  10. Garbage call! Posse leaders not performing RO (or spotter) duties have no authority to make this call, never mind the "spectator", that's laughable. All shooters vote... all in favor... call overturned, next. LOL PL needs to take a step back and think why they are an MD in the first place and what goes into that.
  11. Just write in the stage instructions "may restage on prop or holster after firing". Gives folks options (they like options) and avoids Ps. : )
  12. Noah, For rifle, ya can't go wrong with the Henry Youth. Outta the box, it's a great little rifle. For SG, my daughter started with some downloaded .410s in a H&R single, then moved to a light-loaded 12 ga Stoeger. She used some Heritage Rough Riders I slicked up, but I think the Bearcats are great. Ruger also just brought out their Wranglers, nice little revolver.
  13. Actually, some folks come up with some pretty clever and funny stuff at the line, whether they forgot or not... say something better than "shooter ready". Which interpreted means "I think lines and all this Cowboy 'stuff', for that matter, is hokey".
  14. Let me start with, IMHO (that's me, mine), I always write lines, either from a movie or some theme regarding our folks or the time of the year or whatever. Simple, usually no more than a few words, but I do write em. I USED to write stories, but got tired of the vote to read them or not being an overwhelming "don't read em". I spent more time coming up with stories than I did writing the actual stages so... no more stories. The annual is another story; I believe our annual stages should reflect who we are as a club. If we can't do a good job on a match we want folks from out of town to come to, we shouldn't do one. If you want to just go up to the line and start shooting, I feel bad for ya; kinda takes something away from what we do, again, IMHO. I typically find, folks who don't want to say lines, don't do much on the dress either. I know there are folks out there who are beat down from doing most everything for the matches, I get it. Me, I will always write and say the lines.
