    Nicely Done!  Looks like you Floridians were quick on the draw as usual!  I suspect that the 3 Marylanders that made the cut were from the "Holds" from the cancelled match.  I don't know of anyone local that got through the registration system, but that is just a guess. Glad to see so many Easterners get a chance to participate at EOT.

    We were visiting our daughter, her husband and 17 month old grandson in Baltimore (Arbutus actually) that morning, and I got through. It was a bear though!!

  2. Thanks Misty and we appreciate all the hard work. My last post was precipitated by Legendary Lawman’s post on this thread about a new application for Wild Bunch. This thread was started by me and was addressed to those in a similar situation, i.e. not in the main match nor on the WB list despite having applied for both. LL’s comments didn’t apply to us although he didn’t draw that distinction. He probably should have posted that on a new thread. You clarified the situation as did LL in his most recent post. All is good. 

     

    PS Is that rocket scientist a classic cowboy out of Alabama with his hat brim folded up in the front?

    For those wanting to shoot Wild Bunch even if they don't get to shoot cowboy, please don't call the SASS office just yet.  As you can imagine, they are still very busy finalizing all the cowboy registrations.

    A revised application will be available early next week on the SASS website where you can register for WB if you are not yet accepted for cowboy or do not wish to shoot cowboy.  When it is available, it will be announced on the wire.

    I started the registration effort online promptly at 11:00am monday, February 8. It was not until 12:33pm that I was able to break through and get my application submitted. Now, you are telling me that that application, which included Wild Bunch, counts for nothing and I can go through the whole *&%@#**%& process again using a Wild Bunch only application at some future date. I certainly hope you have that wrong! It seems that SASS could simply look at the applications already submitted and add those of us who applied for WB to the list of shooters or waiting list in the order received rather than ignoring those and making us run the electronic logjam/lottery a second time. If you are correct, someone needs to rethink this-it's not rocket science.

  4. I am 26 on the EOT main match waiting list but I also applied for Wild Bunch. When I checked the Wild Bunch shooters list I found just 31 names and I wasn’t one of them!

     

    I called the SASS office and they told me that they didn’t include names of people who applied for both matches and didn’t make the main match when they compiled  the Wild Bunch entrant names. They said they “assumed” that anyone not making the  cas match would not want to shoot WB. I told them that I will shoot WB regardless of whether I ultimately make the main match and they said they’ll add my name. I suspect there are others in the same situation; they should call the SASS office.

  5. There will always be some shooters who “can’t” attend for one reason or another. All SASS has done is move the location and there’s 4+ months to plan.

  6. I've had one 650 for more than twenty years and have never had the primers ignite when I was using it. My son did once more than fifteen years ago, but he's a big kid and tended to operate the machine like a bull in a China shop. Dillon promptly replaced the damaged parts for free, the strong outer metal tube on the primer feed prevents any injury. The black plastic follower rod dinged the ceiling in the garage a bit and looked like a pig's tail afterwards. I recently bought a second 650 from a friend's estate and will run small primers on one and large on the other. I suspect changing primer size on the 750 may be easier than on the 650, but don't know for sure. My older machine is getting a little tired and will be going back to Dillon for a refurb over the winter. I would guestimate  200-300k rounds have been loaded on the older machine.

  7. Kudos to Kaya, but we also need to appreciate a school and school district that will recognize a student for participating in a shooting sport. Once when my son was young he wore a Big Irons t-shirt to school with a small crossed pistol logo of the Big Irons club. The school staff made him take it off and put it back on inside out and also made him wear a flannel shirt they pulled from the lost and found over the t-shirt so no one could make out the pistols through the t-shirt. I think he was in elementary or middle school at the time.

     

    With all the anti-gun hysteria in our schools it's good to hear a story like this one.
