  1. I remember this outfit from the '70s. My recollection is that you could be ordained for $5 but a Doctor of Divinity degree cost $20.
  2. Locally one Wild Bunch shooter uses small primer 45 ACP cases. I give those I find to him as a way of thanking him for the leadership he's shown the shooting community over the years. I don't trash any brass since a local metal recycler will buy it.
  3. A co-worker's late husband was a reporter present when Ruby shot Oswald. When the shot went off, he froze, dropped his mike and didn't move his hands. Seems like he did exactly the right thing.
  4. Thanks for posting early so that my wife and I can adjust our 2021 travel plans. We will only lose an $18 non-refundable campground reservation fee. Many Americans are losing their lives. I expect other match cancellations for the first half of 2021.
  5. In the 6th grade in line at the cafeteria Principal Kraxberger announced the assasination. I ate my lunch but had no appetite for seconds. After lunch no one played on the schoolyard. Everyone stood around stunned.
  6. Strange that APP would publish load data for an Evans cartridge and not a 38 Special. Apparently an Evans rifle would hold 34 short rounds. Would be fun to shoot a handgun/rifle/shotgun stage with a single firearm. The Evans Rifle Shooting the Evans
  7. There is a large variation in quality with .22 ammo. The very cheapest promo ammo has about a 5% FTF rate in my firearms. In semi-autos the powder burns so dirty they quit cycling after a few hundred rounds. I get large groups when shooting a rifle. Quality, target grade .22s always fire, burn clean and make tight groups. For hunting or competition bring quality .22s. Save the promo .22s for children who want to plink for hours.
  8. Pick up a single shot rifle to go with the cap guns and you can shoot a Plainsman side match (my favorite side match).
  9. The bottle I bought from Scarlett directs one to Shooterworldpowders.com for load data. This is what I found:
  10. I have a 24-inch '92 with a tang sight for these side matches. I removed the buckhorn sight entirely. All I have to do is look through the peep sight and place the front sight at the desired location - just two things to line up. My wife shoots the same rifle and finds it easy to ring the targets. I use ammunition that is too hot for main matches. It's fun to ring targets at 260 yards with a .357 round.
  11. Just came home from WalMart. With the governor's health order starting Monday there will be long lines for grocery shopping. I bought everything on my list. Eggs were sold out though I didn't need any. I wish the governor didn't close outdoor recreation facilities. Golf courses, tennis courts and outdoor shooting facilities are not super spreader sites.
  12. I'm shooting one of the new CZs. My wife shoots SKBs (great CAS shotguns). I prefer the additional weight of my CZ. I have not had it long enough to make any statements about durability.
  13. Until a few years ago we had such an outlet located in the back of a bicycle shop. The owner was a big time trap shooter. He supplied the reloading community during the previous component shortage when no one else had supplies. I still have some Trail Boss I bought when they closed the shop.
  14. Torres Small was elected her first term with 8,000 absentee ballots overwhelmingly cast for her and unexpectedly discovered at the last minute. These ballots didn't appear this year. Her campaign ads did show she could fire a long gun competently. I think she lost because her district includes the SE New Mexico oil fields. The economy there is very reliant on oil revenue. A member of congress who might support AOC's Green New Deal or ban fracking won't receive votes from the oil patch.
