  1. Buyer beware on quality of what you buy. Some mfrs make HORRIBLE fitting grips. Don't know about their grip frames tho...
  2. Think of this: plate rack make-ups are stipulated to be made up with the shotgun, shooter made up a plate rack miss with his rifle... P Shooter then only fired three rounds at buffalos: Miss Shooter failed to hit target with correct firearm (shotgun on plate make-up): miss Failed to hit stationary targets 4 times: miss Made up target with SG: NC Hmmmmm
  3. Sounds pretty "Steven Seagal" but I channel anything bad into the shooting of the stage. Concentration If it's worse than that and I am really out of sorts, back off, go to the end of the line and start over.
  4. Said "misses on the plate rack can be made up on a shotgun target"; all targets on the plate rack were down, no make-up needed. 4th Buffalo missed (not engaged) and cannot be made up. Miss
  5. Way to go! That's impressive to watch.
  6. Miss, No P. Stage instructions don't say to only use 6 rounds on the plates (maybe they should have and were intended) shooter engaged plates until down (again stage instructions may have said to ONLY make up plates with SG) and moved to Buffaloes for 3, not 4. Round not fired is a miss. Yes, as stage writers we have to be careful to actually write our intent. Implied is not always understood and by some even argued as "well you didn't say I couldn't". And yes, where was the make-up? OP said all plates were hit (with 7 shots).
  7. I had 4' fluorescents in my new shop; switching to all LEDs. Inline Fab light on the 550
  8. Military saw that I lived there for 4 years. LOVE the state and (most) the people; it's beautiful. But those in charge are ruining a lovely state. And unfortunately it's happening in many other states as well. Grew up in Illinois and won't go back there either. VOTE and stand for what's right (way to go VA residents). Moving away or only reloading is only delaying the inevitable; vote them out! Do NOT tolerate the socialist, liberal left. Many have ammo stores that will meet their needs until they are long gone; what of those that come after us?
  9. Yes, the SBH hammers are drop-in and easy to do and work very well. I do think the Bisley hammers look better and are a bit lower but my old Vaqueros with the SBHs work great. If ya go with Bisleys, I would have a smith do em. And the SBH look GREAT with a nice mirror finish! Best of luck.
  10. Run a pair of .45 early Vaqueros. Made em as close to the same as I can and I don't know and don't care which is on which side. I wonder if they care...
  11. Very nice pieces! Those studded slim jims are outta this world! Would go great over my converted Rems.
  12. I had an Opera cut frock coat made when I was in Korea by Mr. Oh (love that name). Fun to shoot in and because it was cut back away from the revolvers, it never interfered. And I looked quite the dandy as well. Moved to Georgia and it's too dang hot to wear a coat except to the banquets.
  13. Not saying you guys are wrong, but do you really shoot long guns and pistols from the same stance? i.e. rifle first, left foot forward stance and stay in that for your right-hand pistol, shooting across your body? Just want to know.
  14. Been around for a bit and did a lot of that stuff too; enjoyed it. But fast approaching 60 and a good bit "broken". Not being facetious but how many 70 and 80 year olds were shootin back then? We're all getting older everyday and being physical on stages isn't quite as easy as it used ta be. I'm all for doing fun things both on and off the clock that don't require much physical "acrobatics"; try to write em into the stages whenever I can get away with it. The climate of any game will change over time and in a timed, competitive game like ours, we will see actions and attempts to make things faster and faster. Yes, practice and natural talent play a big part in "faster" but dropping fun actions from stages in the interest of increased speed makes us more like any other speed shooting game and less how we fondly remember days gone by.
  15. Sounds like a volunteer for the ROC! But then we may have a novel. You, sir, have been out-worded. I defer to the gentleman from Georgia.
  16. +1 on the music... can't reload without it. Otherwise I hear the voices...
  17. Guess that's why the OP stated "45 Colt" We got it, there's no 45 Long Colt. This has been spewed ad nauseum on here. Why do we feel the need to correct on this constantly? What difference does it make? OP, 200 gr RNFP
  18. HD, Sorry to hear of your troubles. I hope you get a chance to take a winter breather and come back with an enthusiastic club in the spring. Best of luck!
  19. Lil Rob... ya bob n weave, bob n weave... I'm pretty sure I have seen some that blow so much smoke, no one can see the targets. Can't call a miss if ya can't "see" one... No one would do that.
  20. How in the world would you regulate that? Do we shoot in actual "cone" where you can only move so much? Do we leave it up to spotters or the TO to determine? Good gosh we open a can o worms there... CBB, you get a SDQ on every stage. Hahahahaha We ALL do!
  21. Zero IS cold, just not insane like the temps you folks get. Spent four years in Anchorage and it was cold there, but still not as cold as Fairbanks. Stay warm LM
  22. I've never had the pins out, just cleaned up the hammer notches and cam. The pins are held in with a cross pin and wobble a bit. Seem to work fine. My issue with the Ubertis is the hardness of the metal. Even if they didn't do a great job on fit and finish, if the metal was harder, what you did (or had done) to clean them up would be more durable.
