  1. Thank you. It's great to see what other clubs are doing.
  2. Not criticizing, but are knockin' the snot out of the targets? That's a pretty weighty load... bullet AND fps. Why close to 1000 fps in a pistol for CAS?
  3. Nice rifle! I'd be afraid to get a fingerprint on it though. Sooo nice
  4. Why do you want to keep the action "packed" with grease? As the gun heats up from firing, wouldn't it come oozing out by the trigger and around the trigger guard and grip frame? Do you really need the action full of grease? I understand keeping cap pieces out of a C&B gun but on a cartridge revolver it seems kind of odd. And if the owner of a revolver fired with BP "never has to open it up"? That's ok? May get a little nasty after a while... even without fouling getting inside.
  5. I use fired AA and Rem (brass base) hulls, resize the base and give em a wipe with a silicone sprayed rag before boxing them up. Run em in both a SxS and a '97 and they seem to work fine... off the belt, in the chambers and then back out. Oh yeah, I love picking brass for the guys who dip there shells in Crisco... thanks. Yuck!
  6. Does Kalifornia hold to the old assault gun ban (no more than three evil features) or is it illegal with any of the heinous features i.e. a bayonet lug, such as may be on an M! Garand?
  7. I think it's interesting to see how each shooter chooses to start stages when they have a choice... or how they "try" to when given other instructions.
  8. Ahh, they can do what ever they want, I just smirk.
  9. Then the goof doing it gets a Gibbs and laughed at.
  10. With the variations in brass weight (even the same mfr), I find it is pointless to weigh loaded rounds. For Cowboy loads, probably could vary a good bit and still be fine. Ok, you reload police, don't shoot me over that. If you're careful and consistent and hold to established loads (even tailored a bit) and practices, you'll be fine. Any of the reloading manufacturers make decent dies. Yes, there are preferences. Go with a recommendation and if ya don't like it, get something else.
  11. Call Steve (Nate Kiowa Jones) at StevesGunz. He's the guy ya wanna talk to.
  12. I see people start in, what I think, are all kinds of crazy positions. But it's what I think, not what they think. Hey stage writers, if you want folks starting a certain way (or NOT starting a certain way), then write it in. Do I think you look like a goober all crouched down and ready for the 100 meters? Probably, but that's me. You do you. As stage writers, we have the ability to start folks any way we choose... write it. OR... ya get what ya get.
  13. I have a really nice 311 I don't use very much. Original 28 in barrels and not messed with... be happy to let it go... Jussayin
  14. Hands off the crotch holsters! Wanna get your head ripped off, say something about some speed burner with a pair on. Ouch! And NEVER say they're too close together!
  15. Not the point. The point is that an original manufacturer of one of our (Cowboy Shooters) quintessential firearms (the Colt SAA) has capitulated and caved to the Left. Disgusting!
  16. And there ya have it. Cleanliness is... Mt Shasta averted... maybe.
  17. I'm with PM on this. We shoot and reload lead bullets and lead shot, what would you expect? Like was mentioned before, if you have been reloading for any length of time and your lead level is that low, apparently you are doing what needs to be done to keep it that way. Seems maybe you are making Half dome or El Capitan out of a small mole bump. If you reload ANYTHING and you are unaware of lead risks, you have no business reloading. Your choices, my friend, are: go on as you are or quit reloading/shooting. Simple Thanks for the warning.
  18. Get an overhead light for your Dillon and take a peek in the filled case. Prevents squibs.
