  1. Don't get me started. I quit bowling in tournaments when ABC decided that there could no longer be a men's tournament. Just the state tournament, and the ladies state tournament. Men bowling against men is illegal, but women can bowl against whoever they want to. What kind of sense is that supposed to make? It doesn't matter who can beat who. It's stupid.
  2. I don't think the masses will be able to look at their phones and shoot at the same time.
  3. I'm always surprised when somebody comes to the Wire for advice on a topic such as this. I suspect you may be mining for quotes for a "Confusing Gun Laws" article
  4. You said you have 3031. I've run it through my M1. That's what I would use if I were you.
  5. If I was a vet I'd let Tatiana refinance my home loan.
  6. The link is correct. I don't know what's going on. Don't worry about it.
  7. Wow. As everyone else has said, thanks for doing this. The listing for the Robbers Roost Vigilantes in Ridgecrest, CA, links to the Ridgecrest Gun Range Association (RGRA) which is fine, that's where we shoot. But the photos are of the public range, with guys benching modern rifles. There are photos of the cowboy range on that RGRA website. The SASS club's website is www.robbersroostvigilantes.com. Thanks again for doing this. Newt
  8. I agree with this. I used a Dillon for twenty years on cartridges of all sizes until it eventually broke, and I was pounding it on a steel dolly.
  9. Oral histories aren't worth the paper they're written on.
  10. When I started this game in '95, Lucky Smucky was running the matches at West End. It was a great place to shoot, and lots of great folks: Har Trigger, China Camp. Capt. John Sutter, Stony Burke, Island Girl, R.J. Poteet, Dastardly Dave, Calamity Jane, Justin O'Sheriff, Lady Jailer. I have lots of others in my mind's eye but can't come up with the names. I shot Showdown several times. It was always a fun match.
  11. I just read your response to Doc Ward's post about how your hearing loss put a stop to your guitar playing.  Boy, can I relate.  I know the guitar is in tune, and I know I'm playing right, but it sounds like six kinds of discordant hell.  I'm sitting here right now looking at my favorite guitar on a stand next to my desk.  I'm thinking about just putting it away and officially accepting the fact that that part of my life is over.  But I really hate it.  Nasty Newt

      Howdy Newt.

       

      Its easy for me to say this but I really can't take my own advice.

      As long as you can entertain yourself, keep it up.

       

      It wasn't as hard for me to stop playing because I started into Cowboy shooting, which started taking up my time and hobby.

       

      But as you know, even playing a good tuned guitar sounds 'off' and trying to sing along is probably even worse.

       

      Instead of spending good time during the evening entertaining myself playing the guitar, I now mostly dry fire my SG and reloading.

      And I spend a good amount of time messing with a few guns.  Summer will find me shooting a lot more.

       

      I wish you well.  Hope to see you sometime down the trail.
