  1. I had the wife measure between face and front sights with rifle and pistols. For me, this was 34 inches for both. Taped a pencil to a yard stick at 34 inches and took that to the eye Dr. I am right eye dominate and so the right lens has a focal length at 34 inches. Left lens for distance viewing. It does take a couple of minutes for my brain to adjust when I first put them on. I have to take them off to read stage instructions for the posse. I shoot gunfighter and this seems to work for that also. Chancy
  2. I will take one of those if you will ship to iowa Chancy Shot
  3. How do I locate the Q&A section? I don't see it at the top of the page 1. I clicked on the Forums located in the Home>Forums>SASS Wire at the top of the page and got a list of the forums. No surprise there, but there was not Q&A. Then I clicked on the Forums located above Home>Forums>SASS Wire next to the Calendar. Now there is a list of the forums with the Q&A right at the top. Chancy PS - I would call Cowboy Carty, Carty Allaman, Western Gun Works, Monmouth, IL (309) 536-0163 if I needed work on a Marlin.
  4. but,but,but.....where does he carry his back up guns, extra ammo, lunch cooler, bug spray, sun block, umbrella, beverages, squib rod, tool kit, shooters handbook, stool, etc., etc.? Chancy
  5. There is a cowboy that has spilled some to have to come up with that idea. Now I know what do to do when it happens to me (again). Chancy
  6. At the Illowa Irregulars (Milan, IL), we have a different match director at each of our 7 monthly matches and Fall Roundup. All are run by our TG, Count Sandor, to eliminate any confusing wording or safety problems. Having 8 different cowboys with eight different opinions of a good stage keeps things interesting. We keep a new rope handy in case there is a really bad stage, but have not had to use it yet. It is fortunate our club has enough people step up to do the writing. I know that is not possible at all clubs. Chancy
  7. You are ready. Just as a curiosity, how many stitches did it take? Mine took over 40,000. Yours look a lot bigger.
  8. You are just trying to light a fire under the gunpowder. What could go wrong? Chancy
  9. I added one of these. I like it a lot. KMS Squared - UFO 550 Reloading Press Light Chancy
  10. There it is.....The point that is on point. And that joker will be in the middle of the room, not next to a load bearing wall in a corner. Chancy
  11. I would get 2. A little one for yourself and a big one for Short Cake. Let her pick the colors! Chancy
  12. Since I am cheap frugal, I modified my belt to be either BWestern or Classic Cowboy. The first picture is in the CC mode. The holster has very little drop so the pistol butt is above the top of the belt. For BW, I cut a slot through the belt that lowered the pistol enough to meet the requirements of butt below the top of the belt. If you are starting from scratch, make the loop over the belt narrow so the slot in the belt can be narrow and thereby covered up when the holster is in the CC mode. Mine is pretty well covered up but visible is you are looking for it. Chancy
  13. The marshal is right. With your concert about accuracy and low round count, the lee is more than adequate. Take that money and buy a new gun!! Chancy
  14. If you can get free to shoot with Dave, do it. Nothing like being at a match for find out stuff. If they are like my club (Ilowa Irregulars (shameless plug)), they will shove guns in your hands and get you going. Chancy
  15. I received a pound as a gift. I mixed it at about 1/5 in with the FFg I use in my rifle and pistol loads. Mixed in small batches. All went bang with no noticeable change in recoil or point of impact (Of course, I was doing the shooting so who really knows?). Chancy
  16. Here I have been using Skippy all these years. Shows how much I know about shotguns. Chancy
  17. I am using a Baikal also. Same problem starting out. I started using the rear trigger first, then the front. It caused me to grip a little farther back. After a couple of matches, it seemed was an unconscious movement (muscle memory). Then I switched to BP which is much softer(see profile picture). Now I am not sure which trigger I use first and I don't care. Chancy
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Cowboy Rick and Double Tap have the right of it. I do the same. Chancy
  21. I have an example that might be considered, outrunning my gun. I have 2 SXS shotguns. A biakial bounty hunter and a hammered double from Coyote Cap. The lock time on the on the biakial is such that I pull the trigger, it goes bang and move to the second shot. After several years of shooting this gun, I have no trouble hitting the first shot. Along come the hammer gun. Pull the trigger, expect the bang, move to the second shot and bang between targets. I have to wait for it to go off. My timing will have to be adjusted to shoot this gun effectively. That's my story and I am sticking
  22. I use 41 grains of FFg. I think that is enough. http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g226/wildemuthstevenl/_93R9337_original_zpsieochize.jpg Chancy
  23. At my club, the Illowa irregulars, a poker chip is awarded to the winner of each category if there was any competition. You have to beat somebody to get a chip. Everyone seems to enjoy the announcements as each winner is announced. Chancy Shot - First Place FCGF --- No chip Someday I will beat somebody. Chancy
