  1. I still use a flip phone. Military tough and secure. Battery can be removed and no GPS. With the battery out there is no way to track the phone. Battery lasts over a week. I have no need for an upgrade.
  2. I somewhat agree that we don't need a bunch of new rules. I firmly believe that we need to get rid of some of the current rules/penalties. I'm more interested in voting out current penalties than adding new ones.
  3. Dutch tere were plenty of full auto firearms on display at SHOT this year. It isn't open to the public. Have to be a dealer, etc. to get in.
  4. Ninety Caliber, I strongly recommend camping at the ranch if you can handle dry camping. As Ed said there is water and sewer service available. The first 2 rows and most of row 3 are reserved for founders Club members but sometimes you can get into row 3. Rows 4-12 are open to anyone, and there is a shuttle from the camping area to the range. It is only a few hundred yards though so most just walk.
  5. GAMM is an unofficial side match held at some Wild Bunch matches with no official rules. BAMM is an official Wild Bunch side match. The rules can be found in the WBAS Shooters Handbook or as a pinned post on the WBAS forum.
  6. Definitely the new Comfort Inn in Edgewood if space is still available. Book NOW !!!
  7. There is no restriction against shooters in the Gunfighter category dressing Steampunk. There are only 2 categories where dressing Steampunk is not allowed. B-Western and Classic Cowboy/Girl.
  8. Check with your local fire Department. Nearly all have one or access to one for training. I've used many over the years for fire service training but don't have one now. They can be irritating to the sensitive.
  9. I have gone through many calipers over the last 50 years. First vernier then dial. (still have some Starret dial ones). I currently use digital ones. Expensive $200+ from Starrett and Mitutoyo in the machine shop but in my reloading room I use a pair of Fowler Euro-cal IV 6". Very good calipers for the money. I do however use an expensive 4 place Mitutoyo micrometer in my reloading room.
  10. There is NO prohibition on removable bases !!!! As long as the magazine meets the requirements stated in the rule it is legal. I should know, I wrote the rule.
  11. For serious stuff I use Imperial Sizing Wax. Now made by Hornady. Every benchrest shooter has used it exclusively for as long as I can remember. It is also the lube of choice for making wildcat cases.
  12. I handled the prototype revolvers at the SHOT show last week. They were VERY pretty but were NOT smooth to cock. trigger pull was very nice but tough to cock. Maybe they were just over-sprung. The Owner used to work for Colt so I am sure he knows about their trademarks. He said at the show that they would be available by late Summer. Will have to wait and see. (incidentally the company has done the CCH work for Colt for many years so they are certainly legitimate)
  13. The President of Standard worked for Colt for quite few years. Left about 3 years ago. He was also very familiar with the USFA SAA program. I think they are trying out the market with many different prototypes to see what has interest. They even had a semi-auto Thompson in the booth. Beautiful looking work on all the firearms. I have no idea what will actually happen.
  14. I have many 1911's and some of both. I prefer the arched ones. They seem to point better and fit my hand.
  15. I just got back from SHOT. I handled the SAA samples they had at the show. It is a legitimate company. They have done the CCH work for Colt for years. The revolvers loked great, BUT they were extremely rough handling and were seriously over=sprung. Should be available by late Summer.
  16. Deuce, do you know what booth Misty will be at?? SASS isn't listed as an exhibitor this year? EMF, Cimarron??? I figured to stop by and say HI if I ran into her.
  17. CC: The Great American Outdoor show. There is a pinned thread by Misty about it on the regular wire.
  18. BT, will you please post the application as a PDF so I can download it and send it in. I need all the computer help I can get. I can print out a pdf, but can't seem to print out anything else.
  19. We do NOT use them for our rifles. If it is a bolt gun just take the bolt out, sight through that on the target put the bolt back in and shoot it. If a gun you can't see through the barrel shoot on large graph paper at 25yds. then adjust. Not very hard. We usually get within 2" after 4 rounds.
  20. BTT one more time for those who might have missed it.
  21. I will be there. SASS isn't listed as having a booth this year. Probably the most CAS activity will be at the Cimarron and EMF booths. SHOT is to the trade only so I don't think it is a great venue for SASS. They are doing the BIG PA show this year which is open to the public. It is now owned by the NRA and SASS always has a booth at the Annual NRA Convention so going to this show makes sense.
  22. Chief Rick: Call Larry Weber in Las Vegas. 702-363-9998 He can give you the info you need.
  23. Flash suppressors work by cooling the powder gasses by contact with cool metal. The suppressor must have sufficient mass and coverage to cool the gasses below the point of being SO hot that they appear to burn in the air. Sound suppressors use internal spaces designed to no only cool the gas but also slow its exhaust speed below that of the speed of sound. With supersonic bullet speed you still hear that crack of the bullet breaking the sound barrier if you are in line with or front of the muzzle. Suppressed firearms firing bullets below the speed of sound are VERY quiet.
  24. I have built 48 tables here on my range. They are 32" tall with 32X48" tops. That way I get 3 tops from a 4X8 sheet of marine plywood. We have severe winds occasionally so I use concrete form stakes to hold them down. Those stakes are GREAT. They come in various lengths depending on your need and have holes drilled through them every 2" to make fastening them to the table legs easy. I made some smaller tables but occasionally it is hard to keep long guns on them when in a hurry.
