  1. When I needed a barrel for my Remington, Uberti was no help whatsoever. Try Taylors, at least they will talk to you.
  2. We just get one or two for the match and chuck em. We also use a low table in front and if going with SG last, just bring it forward so you won't have to shoot over it.
  3. You could angle the long gun rests to the side (so yer not sweepin yerself) and use a hay bale for a forward stopping point and gun rest, if need be. Just an idea.
  4. And maybe even have, oh I don't know, a NO-Shoot target. "What did he say?" Oh the horror! A target in front of another that you're not supposed to shoot? How could this be? Like bad guys never took hostages? And a plate rack was mentioned; not the horizontal plate rack, but the one-behind-another rack. You know if you lean to the side just a little, the plates are all overlapping! For our monthlies, I usually have two stages with no movement, two with one move and two with two moves... but not always. Never more than two stand and deliver stages; they're fun but get old. And I don't want the same old, that's why I started writing stages in the first place. If you have targets that overlap, just shoot the right one at the right time. I don't make it a habit to set them up this way, but what do they say about variety?
  5. Beautiful! If you look, there are beautiful places all over our great country. Headed to Arizona next week for a wedding; love it there!
  6. Humor... yes, of course have a laugh, lightly ridicule, cajole... and start em over.
  7. It doesn't say in the OP, but apparently the rifle action was open (AND it was empty). Penalty should be that the shooter has to load all guns ON the clock... that'll learn em!
  8. That IS Southern Illinois! Hahaha. Spent the first 25 years of my life there (DuPage Co), loved it, never thought of going anywhere else... then Uncle Sam called and I have been to some of the most beautiful places this country has to offer. Anchorage, Alaska - Wow!, beautiful! Kansas was fine, Mt Home Idaho - gorgeous! Tucson, Az - Love me some desert. No California was great, just too liberal and too expensive. Middle Georgia is fine, but I sure miss the mountains back West. Oh, "Southern" Illinois is fine... if ya like CORN!!! Hahaha. Family in Putnam; very nice and quiet there. Really though, my dad told me many years ago how messed up our country was getting (with all of the laws and nonsense we have to deal with) and being in Illinois, it was that much more prevalent. People didn't take him seriously, but he was RIGHT! Now he's gone and Illinois is worse than ever and I can't see ever going back to the oppression there.
  9. Leather makers regularly put their "mark" on their work, always have. Not apparel either.
  10. The solution is to move from that *%$@^ state and never look back. Went into the military in 1988 and have only been back to visit since. Pizza - Yes, Italian Beef sandwiches - Yes, Love my Cubbies too, but NEVER going back to that crooked, liberal state!
  11. And then there are shooters who can move to "make" targets overlap. Just by shifting your body position in the shooting "box", you could change overlap and non-overlap of targets. Yes, there are shooters who think this way. Every advantage you can get. And if you blow through a row of targets and they are "overlapped" and you hit the wrong one, it's a miss, right? It is subjective. Unfortunately, we can't always set up targets to make it the same and fair for everyone. I intend to engage and hit all of the targets in the correct order, it just doesn't always work out that way. But I INTENDED to! You can't tell what someone's intentions are, you can just evaluate what they actually did. Maybe all stages should be two 16"x24" rectangles, 10 feet apart, 24 inches off the ground and at 7.5 yards from the shooter. But that's unfair to taller shooters, because they have to shoot down at the targets. And shooters with wider chests have an advantage because the distance between the targets doesn't seem as great and... You can what if this to death! Life is not fair, all shooters are not alike. Shooters will have different vantage points in stage setups from other shooters. Can we make things better? Yes; will it always be fair and even to all shooters? No. Where do you draw the line? 1/2" between targets? 12" between targets? I never miss, the bullets just go where I hadn't "intended" them to. My view
  12. See ya on the range... yucky hands an all!
  13. Had to put a pal down in Nov. Very sad. Sorry for your loss.
  14. Dry would probably be fine for Raindrop's elastic loops, but I think the silicone helps in my canvas loops. That may be an idea for the OP, try another type of loop (i.e. elastic). Maybe?
  15. I spray it on a rag and wipe the plastic part of the shell down. Don't seem to notice any residue. Hands can get a little slick though, especially when wiping them all down. I clean guns after shooting so, no big. Sure that "nasty stuff" is from my shells?
  16. I don't use brass, but I do wipe my reloaded shotgun shells down with silicone after loading them. Cleans em and makes em slick. And diet Coke DOES offset cheeseburgers. Everyone knows that! Er.
  17. It's all about tolerance and inclusion... or was that tolerances and precision? I get so mixed up.
  18. Now that we've insulted the guy and showed how smart we all are, maybe he will actually still join SASS. Aren't we TRYING to get new members? Yes, we want to see pictures. No, it's probably NOT rare as a hen's tooth. Who cares, the guy's proud of his new acquisition. Let's celebrate the love of Marlins (unless you're a hater of them and a Winchester purist) and welcome the guy in. Or... we can keep up the insults, history lessons, snarky comments and scare off another one. Welcome Stopsign, hope ya join.
  19. Prayers from Raindrop and I. The Lord will provide.
  20. Just like if a long gun closes, check it when done. Empty - no call, round in gun - penalty. Hull is spent - no call, hull is loaded round - penalty.
