  1. I keep a stainless Marlin rifle around for shooting in wet weather. If you buy a stainless gun, keep it well-lubricated.
  2. I shot a WB match yesterday with social distancing. It worked well. The TO wore and mask and gave the shooter more room than normal. Only two persons allowed at the loading table - one at each end. Just one person at the unloading table. One thing that was not planned but worked well was good use of the wind. Those who needed to talk to each other stood at right angles to the wind, six feet apart. Everyone showed much discipline. I felt safe.
  3. I've seen low-income SASS shooters whose dedication to the sport exceeds mine. We have a retiree who plucks spent bullets out of the back of a berm and recasts them for future matches. People camp in canvas tents at EOT in 100-degree weather when air-conditioned motels room are available for $50 a night. I've also seen a family of seven cram into a small passenger van with all their carts and guns and travel to out-of-state matches. I'd hate to see such people priced out of the sport.
  4. Founders Ranch where EOT is held is resuming operations. There will be a Wild Bunch match on Saturday. The shotgun ranges are open with limitations. Resuming shooting at the ranch will help keep it solvent. (I really miss not shooting EOT this year.)
  5. 1st choice: a canvas ammo belt with rifle rounds separated in groups of two. 2nd choice: a possibles pouch. We have shotgun belts that hold rounds in groups of two close to where they are loaded. I grab two rounds at a time. Pouches are OK but the distance from the pouch to the rifle chamber is greater and the rounds may not be well-alligned. A belt works best for me. Loading the rifle is the most time-consuming task in Plainsman. Rifle loading efficiency is essential for good stage times. Yes, I too carry extra rounds in case I fumble and drop a round.
  6. This match was on my list as a possibility for this summer. I appreciate you posting now so I can adjust my summer plans. Hopefully your club has the financial strength to host the match next year.
  7. I have an oddball question. Are these loads legal for a derringer side match? Page 27 of the Shooter's Handbook states requirements for revolver, rifle and shotgun ammunition. These firearms clearly require lead projectiles but there are no stated requirements for derringers on that page. Page 31 states requirements for derringers. .22 mag ammo is prohibited but the page is silent regarding wax projectiles. Is there a ruling by the ROC that wax projectiles are illegal for derringers? (I have a 38 Special that I would only fired lead projectiles from in a SASS match. My question is purely academic.)
  8. VOLQUARTSEN parts: +1 My 10/22s prefer copper plated bullets. Ruger's extended magazines are more reliable than the aftermarket magazines I bought before Ruger's extended magazines were available. I used to shoot 10/22s in rimfire challenge matches before they ended locally. Much fun!
  9. I think I'll be like Yosemite Sam and shoot at the feet of anyone who gets closer that 6-feet.
  10. I sent my application in last week and got my confirmation today. I'm looking forward to a fun match and your excellent awards banquet at the Cowboy Hall of Fame.

      Sepsis - occurs when chemicals released into the bloodstream to fight the infection trigger inflammatory responses throughout the body.

      This not good.  Tex goes on the prayer list starting tonight
