  1. Itchy, Safe Conditions During a Course of Fire – Rifles A rifle is considered SAFE to leave the shooter’s hands in the following condition(s) only (some conditions may be corrected before firing the next firearm): - Empty. - Hammer fully down on an empty chamber or spent round, action closed (restaged for further use). STAGE DISQUALIFICATION PENALTY (SDQ) A Stage Disqualification (SDQ or “Stage DQ”) is generally a safety violation of a more serious nature, and means the competitor’s time and performance on the course of fire is disqualified as a result of the violating action by the shooter. - Shooting on the move (continuous, fluid movement while engaging targets). - Any dropped unloaded firearm on the firing line. - Long guns that slip, fall, and break the 170°. - Violation of the 170° Safety Rule/Failure to maintain appropriate muzzle control. - Any discharge that hits the ground or non-expendable stage prop 5 – 10 feet from the shooter. - Returning a revolver to leather with the hammer not fully down on a spent round or empty chamber. - A cocked revolver leaving the shooters hand. - Staging or discarding a long gun containing a live round in the chamber (once it leaves the shooter’s hands). - Initially staging a long gun with the hammer cocked/action closed (once it leaves the shooter’s hands).
  2. Dusty, there are a few shooters that have a stainless mag tube. Several years ago, Matt Masterson had some made and was selling them, but he's no longer participating. And it DOES work very well at reducing rust in tube. I could measure mine, if you'd like and you can see if you can find the right sized tube and make your own.
  3. I imagine in dry, dusty climates running the carrier dry (or with a dry-lube) would be best, as grit would tend to stick to the lube.
  4. It is indeed an EXCELLENT event!
  5. As of 1400, Brownells still has them, but Natchez out.
  6. The hardest part is cutting them little suckers in half.
  7. I'll be really glad if some Rem. Percussion caps start showing up! At least this seems to prove the Rem. ammunition factory is running again.
  8. Saddened to hear this. He was always a pleasure to be around. RIP, T-Star
  9. 550 is great. 750 is great. I don’t like the case feeder on the 550, as it crowds it up too much, but love it on my 650.
  10. Matthew, glad her eyesight is returning. Must have popped her pretty good!
  11. Just a reminder why we wear safety glasses: This past Saturday while timing for a shooter, a significant portion of his bullet came back and hit my prescription safety glasses so hard it knocked the lens out. The screw was nowhere to be found, but the glasses were repairable without any permanent damage. My soft tissue wouldn’t have fared as well.
  12. I mis-remembered about the book. It wasn’t Doc that wrote it, it was Bounty Hunter.
  13. He is a former world champ. He wrote a book on CAS. He sold SG targets. Been a long time since he shot CAS.
  14. I remember hearing of a man practicing gunfighter at a range in Florida who ended up shooting himself in the liver and died. I remember hearing of the young man grazing himself at the LT. I've been witness to a shooter who had a pistol blow up and had to go get fixed up, but his was not bad. However, that's in 18 years of being in this sport. Overall, I'd say it is VERY safe. Possum
  15. Well, it was mostly just smoke and air, but it’s cheap.
  16. I have an old 4 lbs jug of used Titegroup I’d sell cheap.
