Hahaha! Senior moment., I lived in MADERA then! I may have to come down next year. I consider the early days pre- 2000-2002 or so. They still had "The John Wayne Test" back then, most of the current stuff would not pass! LOL. Mouse f@rt loads, Titanium firing pins, aluminum followers and short stroke kits ARE NOT from the early days.
Rifle target would be 25-35 yards or more, pistol at 10-15 yards, and targets about 1/3 the size! Railroad Flat had a 50 yard bell in a bell tower. Stages were scenarios with a script, props, and a theme.
