  1. EZ GZ, SASS Regulator and volunteer member of the EOT medical staff shot her first Plainsman match and placed.
  2. Joe Brisco of Cowboy Shooters Supply was busy smithing guns Tuesday and brought plenty of low noise, low recoil AAs.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

      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

      Thanks.  Will do.

  19. My main match revolvers are 44 mag Rugers.  When I shoot smokeless rounds in them I load a 240 gr, RNFP bullet over 7 grains of Unique.  This load was on Alliant's website for years.  No gas check is needed and the bullets do not tumble.  I use Federal primers because my revolvers are tuned with light springs.  If you have stock springs any large pistol primer will be reliable.  I buy Hi-Tek coated bullets from Missouri Bullets with Brinnel hardness 12.  These soft bullets give less "splashback" from steel targets. 

     

    Once-fired 44 mag brass is often available on auction sites.  Buy in lots of at least 1000 cases and never pay more than half the price you would pay for virgin brass.

      great stuff, thank you so much. Have had a lot of pards recommend Unique, almost picked up a bottle while in Walmart tonite. Figured I'd wait until I at least had bullets. I been saving all my brass, have about 300+ and still have 3 boxes to shoot. Had someone else offer to trade me his used mags for all my used specials. One big question... case trimmers. Is that something that needs to be done a lot? I shoot 100+ miles from where I live but found out I have some local shooters i am meeting next week, hope to find someone who can help me learn all this stuff. Thanks again for responding  :-)

  20. Tripadvisor.com gave the Drury Inn & Suites Phoenix Happy Valley a certificate of excellence.  Stay away from the nearby Motel 6 Suites and Extended Stay motel.  They have security problems.  The maids at the Motel 6 report to their gangbanger boyfriends which rooms have guns so they can steal them.  At the Extended Stay I saw a drug dealer being evicted after he threatened hotel staff.

     

    Enjoy WR.  It is the best CAS match I've ever attended.

      Thanks for the advice. I've reserved a room at the Drury Inn. We've always had good luck with their motels. Looking forward to the match have been wanting to go for years. The daughter and I are going to spend some time at the Grand Canyon the following week.

      The south rim of the Grand Canyon is at about 8,000 feet elevation and can be covered with snow in February.  The crowds are light then and it is a beautiful time to visit.  However, I recommend a four wheel drive vehicle due to possible winter driving conditions.  Only the south rim will be open in February.  The north rim will be closed.  Bring your winter clothes from Iowa.  It may be colder on the south rim than Iowa. 

       

      BTW, WR is held during the peak of the grapefruit season in Arizona.  Go to any fruit stand in Mesa and pick up crates of fresh citrus to haul home to Iowa.  (Citrus less than two days off a tree is incredibly tasty.)  While there visit Wild West Mercantile.  My cowboy costumes are primarily from their bargain bins.

       

      Safe travels and I hope to meet your an your daughter.
