  1. EZ GZ read the scripture while Sgt. Shuster (right) preached.
  2. EZ GZ, SASS Regulator and volunteer member of the EOT medical staff shot her first Plainsman match and placed.
  3. Joe Brisco of Cowboy Shooters Supply was busy smithing guns Tuesday and brought plenty of low noise, low recoil AAs.
  4. I'm posting photos a few photos I like. I hope you enjoy them. Pistol Peter and Kathouse Kelly (both from Australia) shoot a warmup match.
  5. Try Hawaiian Moco Loco with Spam sometime. Portions may be huge so plan to ship the next meal.
  6. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the weather at FR. The Moriarty airport is 78-deg F with 30% relative humidity at 3:47 PM Monday. This is dry by Florida standards but cool and moist for New Mexico in June. Bring raingear for late afternoon shooting as rain is likely. (It's raining at my home as I type.) My number is 1082 if anyone is looking. Update: the weather forecast for the main match looks bad. I will be shooting in high winds Saturday PM. My black powder smoke will disappear so fast no one will notice the smoke.
  7. How many rounds do you need a year? The equipment you quoted will produce large numbers of high quality reloads -probably more than a single shooter needs. If you are loading for a family or shooting clays this equipment will serve you well. Like DJ I load my BP shotgun shell on a MEC Jr that easily meets my family's needs for BP shotgun shells. You can do will less costly equipment.
  8. Nope, per capita #1 in auto thefts and a murder rate exceeding Chicago or Baltimore. ABQ is gangland. I had to move out.
  9. Walk at a reasonable pace, take the shuttle up the hill to your RV if camping onsite and go easy on the adult beverages and you will do fine. However if you have trouble getting enough oxygen at sea level FR could be hard on you.
  10. Yep, stay hydrated, slop on high-PF sunscreen and go easy on the adult beverages after shooting. When dining at a local restaurant when the waiter asks "red or green" inquire which is hotter before making your selection if you are not used to spicy foods. Keep your guns covered when not shooting. It can get very dusty during EOT. Are your camping on range?
  11. Your question probably deserves a new thread. Many matches allow dry camping on range and some have numerous RV sites. A few (for example Land Run) have electric and and water hookups. The New Mexico Championship this year will have paved RV parking with electric hookups and nearby water. Some matches are located in resort areas (for example the 4-Corners Regional) that have plenty of nearby RV camping with full hookups at commercial and government-owned parks. End-of-Trail, the international championship and Winter Range, the national championship have both onsite camping and nearby RV Parks. Naturally any onsite camping with utilities is in high demand. Bordertown, the subject of this thread has limited onsite camping but nearby RV parks with full hookups. At Bordertown my family stays at the Tombstone Territories RV park - mere ten minute drive from the shooting range. There are other RV parks in and around Tombstone. RVing fits in very well with the CAS sport. Major matches have been described as RV rallys built around a shooting match. There is much socializing in camping areas after the guns are cleaned.
  12. Adding to the lists above: Targets were far enough out you had to aim to hit them. There was also very little backscattered lead. Stages with seldom-used sweeps that were nevertheless very shootable. Plenty of RV parks and state parks near the range with full hookups for campers. New shade structures provided protection from the desert sun. BT Blade's posse photos are professional quality. One can see why he is the official EOT photographer. My wife had a stunning win on .22 speed rifle and has assumed ownership of a BL-22. She now wants to specialize in .22 side matches. We will return next year a few days early to get our long-range rifles dialed in for the side matches.
  13. I hope Ruger offers some as door prizes at major matches. The bronze color appeals to me.
  14. Tex doesn't like me posting prayer requests for him on the SASS Wire so please keep this one private.
