  1. Maybe its just in my head, bit I seem to find the next target and get on it quicker with a tang sight. I have two rifles. One with a tang and one with a flat barrel mounted rear sight. I run the tang sight without the insert. If i am looking through the hole and put the front sight on the target, its a hit. One of these days, I will put a tang sight on the second rifle. I will have to say that the tang sight, though faster for me, isn't really noticeable on my raw times. It is noticeable on my miss count. That's my story and I am sticking to it. Chancy
  2. I prefer to start with the Shotgun. If I fumble finger the first load, I can get a restart. Of course, I never do. Its the second load I fumble around with. Chancy
  3. Warden - Its a vertical rack for long guns after loading. Very handy. Chancy PS - Got my trailer out of storage and starting to pack.
  4. This was covered in another post a while back. Search for "Short gun cart with coach gun?" Chancy
  5. That's the biggest list of ner-do-wells and reprobates I have seen in a long time. Should be fun. Chancy
  6. The added weight reduces felt recoil. I would leave it there. YMMV Chancy
  7. I have the same gun. If you take the butt plate off, you will find a deep hole. In that whole is a bolt head. When I take mine apart, I remove that bolt first. The stock comes off, revealing that T thingy. Reinstall is just the reverse. (Thingy is a technical term you might not be familiar with.) your problem might be that the bolt in the stock is loose in the T thingy. Good Luck! Chancy
  8. Popcorn - I will be shooting BP Gunfighter for the near future, so using my '73. You could borrow the Marlin I was using for BWestern for a couple of matches. Chancy
  9. The match director for our November shoot writes each stage to be "friendly" to one of the shooting styles. When signing up, the shooter can choose the "open" category and is then supposed to shoot each stage in the style that stage is friendly to. No one is required to shoot in the open category. We have been doing this for several years. If memory serves, there is about 30% participation in open category. Mr. Uriah - you might consider this. Chancy
  10. A minor correction. From the shooters handbook in the BW section. Leather Rules: - Buscadero holster rigs or drop holster rigs are required. All revolvers must be carried below the top of the gun belt. My rig has drop holsters that had the pistol buts just above the belt. I cut a slot in the belt that moved the holsters down 2 inches. Now the pistols are well below the top of the belt. I can put them back in the original position and the slots are covered. Now I can go either way., Classic or BW.
  11. I had the same problem. After a while, I tried using the rear trigger first, then reached ahead for the front trigger on the second shot. I think that caused me to grip farther back on the wrist. I did that for a while and the bruising went away. A couple of months later, I was using the front trigger first and did not notice switching. I think I trained myself to grip farther back and then forgot about which trigger to get first. If I was to recommend a fix, train yourself to grip farther back. Chancy
  12. As the gun sits in the picture, it is about 19 inches out. When complete, there will be a stop to hold the butt out about 14 inches. That way, the gun will be more upright and allow a little room for storage (maybe for an ammo box) ahead of the gun. Gun carts are a series of compromises. Good luck, Chancy
  13. With the geometry of the cart in your second link, I would think it would be important to use the bungy strap before moving the cart. I have built several and I put the shotgun butt a little farther ahead so the barrels are more vertical. That's a little more forgiving when going down hill or over bumps. Here is a picture of the one I am working on now. Not complete, but you can see the gun placement. Chancy
  14. I made some little screwdrivers with .45 Colt brass. Can't afford a screwknife. Chancy
  15. The cowboys I shoot with got me interested in Air Pistol Silhouette. A completely different type of shooting. There is still the instant gratification of Bang / Clang. Since movement is not required, I think I will still be shooting this long after I have to give up Cowboy. Chancy
