    With No available product listed. Keep drilling down and there is nothing for sale. 

    Being "Up and Running" has nothing to do with what is available for sale. 

     

    There is also a note at the top of their website that states that they had a fire...etc, etc.

     

    So...since I was simply addressing the PO's question about the website being "under construction"...what exactly is the point of your post?

    I did...did you hit the link I provided? Did click the "shop with us" button on the link you posted?

     

    Maybe try this link:  https://georgia-arms.com/cowboy-loads-sass/

     

    As the OP stated...they aren't selling cowboy ammo and your link does not prove otherwise.

    You linked https://georgia-arms.com/

     

    I linked https://www.georgiaarmsvillarica.com/

     

    The OP asked if "They" were shut down...my post addressed that question.

     

    Try stopping yourself from reading more into folk's posts.

     

    Oy...

    And while a $100/$500 markup sounds like a lot, that dealer has to put up with all of the ATF, Insurance Company, Bank & Credit Card BS on top of his/her rent and other OPEX!  Support CAS merchants and your local dealer!  

     

    Actually, on new guns, 5-8% is about it.

     

    So if your dealer is marking up in the amount you're talking about, they are not competitive.

    There is no right or wrong. Its all personal. I say slow is fast. When I slow down and focus I shoot better. That reduces misses, which makes my times better. 

    I'm here to have fun. I dress. The part and shoot the best I can. You do what you do and we have fun doing it.

    Actually, there is a Right and a Wrong. ;)

     

    And as far as the "I'm here to have fun"...well...duh. Who isn't??

     

    If I can't compete, I won't have fun. If I don't have fun, I won't compete.

    Lubing your pistol brass is like giving your press an action job.  Not necessary, but it really makes a difference.

     

    No comment on the buffoon part....

    Well even a buffoon knows what it does...didn't say I didn't know what it is and what it does.

     

    But...gee, thanks for the info. anyway.

     

    :wacko:

  6. Very nice bullets...

     

    Funny how Cimarron doesn't make bullets...and they had a problem with this.

     

    :o

     

    Plain silliness!! Cimarron Bullets (now Bullet Boss), has a reputation for supporting Texas CAS...who's going to confuse them with Cimarron Firearms???

    Just have fun! And follow my motto ... slow is fast. Relax, focus and it will all fall into place. Oh, and enjoy!

    Well...if you're thinking "speed"...whether slow or fast, you're thinking about the wrong thing.

     

    ;)

    Technically under the description on page 22 of the shb it doesn't even mention feet. It just says continuous fluid movement.

    It's been clarified in the past that continuous lateral movement during the shooting string can be "shooting on the move" even if a foot stays planted. You probably remember the video in question.

    Right...like I said, this has changed over the years.

     

    Since we can move with a spent round under the hammer, when you come to a stop and keep a foot planted, you'd be good to go. So yes, you can basically slow walk while shooting...lot's of fun with a shotgun!!! But not any longer...

     

    Soooooo dangerous...but running like a banshee with it's ass on fire is so dang safe. Moving slowly is scary!!!!!!

     

    Ugh...

    Used to do it at the SASS WA. State Championship back around the late 90's and early 2000's.  I know because I wrote stages for the 2003 match and had a stage where you couldn't see all the rifle targets from one position, so you could move with rifle cocked.  PaleWolf was there shooting the match.  Ask him about it.

    PWB can add clarity/corrections...but the old "basketball" travel rule used to allow movement. But, some folks said that wasn't the intent of the "rule".

     

    So once a gun is fired, the shooter would be able to basically switch the anchor foot. There by allowing basically a step between shots.

    Texas Tornado Style - Big Targets which are close and personal. They put an emphasis on how fast you can operate your guns more than accuracy. I like it for 1-2 stages, but don't prefer it for the entire match like some do.

     

    One range has an extreme example at one stage which is a large 4'x8' piece of steel real close to the shooter. I don't know if a single posse has managed to go clean, someone always tries to shoot too fast and misses.

    First of all...bull!

     

    But let me answer the question first. The Texas Tornado Style is fashioned after Bordertown. Big and Close.

     

    Now to the BS about this style only being about how fast you can operate your guns. This belief is based on ignorance of the game. The Big and Close matches puts an emphasis on Running your guns fast AND efficiently (of course), but it also requires very refined transitions in order to win. Accuracy is always needed. To say otherwise is silly! Any match is "cleanable" if you remove the timer.

    The '66 doesn't have the trigger block safety.  Does that cause problems?  (FWIW, I used a '66 for a few months and sold it, partly because of no trigger block safety.)

    It can...but it's kind of a Strawman.

    First thing I do is take the dust cover off and put in the spare parts bin, only have to do it once. It doesn't go back on the rifle until  I sell it or give it away.

    kR

    Many years ago I had an extractor go bad at a match...all that was available was a 66 extractor. Found out that the dust cover was just a stoopid thing that gets in the way...in our game.
