  1. Thank you for asking. Our host, the Milan Rifle Club is just outside of Milan, IL, very close to the Mississippi. Membership is about half and half - Illinois and Iowa. Hence the name - Illowa. Here are the official (because I wrote them) rules for: Shotgun Star – ‘97/’87 Target: shotgun star at approximately 9 yards. Ammo requirements: 6 rounds loaded, fingers MUST BE outside trigger guard. Starting position: Standing with shotgun in any safe position. At the Beep: Shooter will engage plate with one round. Shooter will engage 5 clay targets. Each miss
  2. Shooter loads 5 rounds. At the beep, he shoots and time and hits are recorded. Shooter reloads 5 rounds. At the beep, he shoots and time and hits are recorded. Recorded times and hits are added together for final score. Number of hits determines winner with time as a tie breaker. We use this system because some rifles can hold more rounds than others. Targets are about 24 x 24 at 100 yards Come on by in September and give it a whirl!
  3. I have the privilege for my sins to be the side match director for our annual ((Insert Shameless Plug Here) Ilowa Irregulars Fall Roundup - Sept 24, 25 and 26 in Milan, IL). I will list the matches we have available this year with a very short description. We typically offer first and second place awards (certificate) in men's smokeless, men's BP, women's smokeless, and women's BP for each event. That means I printed out (8 X 13 =) 104 certificates last year. OOPS - add a few more for the team events. We do not publish scores, but I do try to announce the winners times during the award p
  4. In this time of shortages, I find myself short of lead shot. I did a quick search for lead shot and and reclaimed shot. Found some but really expensive. Any help on a direction to go would be appreciated. Chancy
  5. They all go bang. Some are cleaner than others. but I have to clean the guns anyway. I get the cheapest least expensive. Chancy
  6. 200 grams of each: Soy Wax Beeswax Crisco Plus 1/2 cup olive oil The list of recipes will go for at least 4 pages. I have several more if you are interested. Chancy
  7. " I figure around Mark 5 I will feel satisfied." Maybe, but Mark VI for sure Chancy
  8. I used the red one for several years. The top compartment was used for ammo. The drawers and bottom compartment for stuff. The big disadvantage was it does not fold. I drive a minivan and it worked great. I could load it by myself with everything on board. Chancy
  9. I have found that after shooting cowboy loads, pellet guns have unmanageable recoil. Chancy
  10. Popcorn - Don't worry. I have been told size does not matter. Chancy
  11. My app is in, hotel room reserved, and in the process of counting out ammo. Can't wait!! Chancy
  12. 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
  13. I use Pro Ears Pro 300. I can adjust the volume of normal sounds, but loud sounds are cut off. Behind the neck band works well with a cowboy hat. I took a look at Planetoptics web site and could not find the model I have with a behind the neck band. If I was buying today I would get these. http://www.opticsplanet.com/pro-ears-pro-tac-300-nrr-26-hearing-protections.html Chancy
  14. Cowboy Rick and Double Tap have the right of it. I do the same. Chancy
