  1. Smoken D, Please know what y'all are doing is very much appreciated! We are blessed with what we need, but many, many people are not. Possum
  2. Thank you all for your concern. As far as I know, everyone survived the Laura. However, it's not good. EVERYONE had damage of some sort to their house and property. Tress down EVERYWHERE. We live about 150 miles north of the coast and it hit us as a cat. 4. Winds clocked at Fort Polk airport at 154 mph. I'm not complaining, however, as we have food, water, shelter, a good generator with plenty of fuel available, window units for A/C and plenty of love. My local range in Lake Charles, Muskeeta Flats, did not survive the storm. Not sure how many of you saw the pictured on FB, but it's just destroyed. We will rebuild. Possum
  3. I was reading this and thought, "That is exactly how our club does it!". Then I looked at the poster and what do you know... it is our club president.
  4. I sent my locks to Steve Young at stevesgunz.com and he made new, music wire springs for mine.
  5. These days, I'm only shooting around 4000 rounds of 38 a year. So I consider a sleeve (5k) a year's supply.
  6. I see good in most everybody, but still contend that cowboy action shooters are the best of the best. Maybe I'm not realistic about this, but I don't care. It is my perception. I strive to be better because I perceive I'm around better people. Wasn't trying to disrespect you, I meant it takes the negatives and the positives and all the middle stuff too. But none of this has to do with the OP, so let's move on. My apologies to the original poster. Possum
  7. Of course it's perception! However, sometimes perception is reality. You live in yours. I live in mine. We are all the center of our own universe. I just CHOOSE to look for more positive stuff, while you look for more negative stuff. They say it takes all kinds.
  8. I'm sure the other shooting sports and most sports in general have mostly great folks. Even, folks who don't do sports at all are mostly great. However, the folks in cowboy action shooting are a couple of cuts above your everyday normal people. Overall, they are extremely honest, loyal, caring and patriotic. I know you don't truly believe that an everyday, ordinary Joe will loan you his $1600 rifle and let you just walk away with it. Cowboy shooters do. My buddy, Nate Kiowa Jones once told me that he had only ever one time had a cowboy shooter not pay him. You won't see that out of normal, run-of-the-mill folks. And bank robbers? Come on... My dad always told me that folks generally see what they expect to see. Possum (who knows he has been made a better person for his association with cowboy shooters)
  9. Some stages prohibit the TO's ability to hold the timer in the correct spot. And some shooters can ABSOLUTELY outrun the TO.
  10. Start position, gun order, shooting sequence, line, movement amount and direction should all vary. However, rifle should not be last due to timing inconsistencies (as has already been said).
  11. I'm with the others who really like a start line. I believe it helps set the mood for the stage. If I went to an annual and they didn't have start lines, I most assuredly wouldn't go back. Possum
  12. I can't say who came up with it. The first time I encountered it was at Comin' At 'Cha a couple of years ago. Maybe it should be written this way: (left...left...left,right,left)
