  1. That DOES look fun, but you would definitely need a "saddle", especially during a Phoenix summer. Ouch!
  2. It's tough to get help when you have people shooting matches every weekend at different clubs and only aligned with one or maybe none as a worker. I know some will work as an R.O. and feel that they have "worked" for the match. That should be the minimum you put in. I know not everyone is qualified to run a timer, not everyone can tote steel... but you CAN do something. Do we want the non-workers to quit coming? No, we don't, we just want a little effort. The few who work very hard to set-up, run and tear down a match get burned out and stop doing it... seen it. We all enjoy the shooting; pitch in and help, even a little, and it will make it easier (and more enjoyable) for all involved.
  3. Shot with em at the SE Regional in Memphis... those two are EVERYWHERE!!! Well done!
  4. I've heard good feedback on this game but I'd rather put any free time I have into my real shootin'
  5. For a really big match, such as EOT, I'd be ok with that. Or this mega-match TJD is talking about. I'm sure it will bring lotsa folks if it happens.
  6. I know some of the bigger matches would have several gun giveaways, but as raffle/door prizes, not match awards. It is appealing to have a chance at a gun no matter how you finish. I have seen lots of em given away (I never win anything big). Winter Range has nice prizes for winners and several very nice raffle prizes.
  7. What were the big prizes? Who was giving them out? Were these big prizes for the winners or raffle/door prizes?
  8. But if it "attacked" the primer pocket, wouldn't it erode the rest of the brass as well? Like OLG said, if you tumbled for days maybe, but then wouldn't any abrasive media?
  9. Nice! Again... And oh yeah, No P! If you want the shooter to start with rifle at shoulder(or any other specific position), stipulate that.
  10. .38 cases are pennies and most of us have thousands; unless you're having this problem on hundreds of cases, chuck em! Not worth it.
  11. Sad to see the quality from America's largest Cowboy handgun mfr. dip to these levels.
  12. That doesn't make much sense; what about new brass?
  13. +1 on Mernickle. Raindrop Renegade loves em!
  14. I dry tumble, but I would think that wet tumbling would be best suited to de-primed brass. Specifically to clean the primer pocket. Thoughts?
  15. Just the response I expected. Thank you
  16. I didn't get the impression that the anvil and cup were separating (that happens to me all the time and seems normal as they are two separate pieces), I thought BCB meant that the cup was actually coming apart.
  17. Wow, a civil discussion with no personal attacks... how refreshing. Thanks for your inputs.
  18. HATE Cowboy Port Arms just for that reason. The position itself is fine, but I'm not crazy about the "jump" some like to get. Sometimes I will write loose instructions so I can see just how "gamey" some will get on their start. It's funny to me.
  19. My leather gets hung on hangers in the walkin closet.
  20. And sometimes I will intentionally leave the instructions loose to give shooters options. They like options.
  21. I'm wondering that after reloading in Georgia for 15 years, this is the first I've ever heard mention of how much humidity affects the powder in the hopper. Hmmmmm
  22. Stating that shooters may start with "gun" in-hand, gives each individual shooter latitude as to how they choose to do that. If the stage writer has a specific starting position in mind, write it (specifically) into the stage instructions. If you leave it up to the shooters, you will see MANY variations in start positions.
