  1. I certainly would hope that they citizens of that county would replace that District Attorney at the next election. The new DA could clean out the trash in the office. This was a case of prosecutorial over reach based on political motivation. Hopefully the citizens in that county will pay more attention to what they are electing to office.
  2. Rittenhouse doesn't have any money. The "victim's" families will try to go after the local police who were ordered to stand down and let the mob rule. The city has the money, not a 17 year old kid. If they got a judgment against the kid, it would just be throwing attorney's fees down a hole because they would never collect. They may also have a very difficult time collecting from the city, but we'll see. The city may settle just to make them go away.
  3. They don't seem to have any trouble delivering all the Medicare Advantage junk mail or the monthly bills.
  4. I certainly didn't take any offense at what Kid Rich said. I've shot with him several times and consider him a friend. We are blessed with lots of good matches around the southeastern U.S. We generally shoot about 7 big matches a year and try to camp on the range, if possible. Actually, part of our selection process includes the availability of range camping. I'd love to be able to travel the county endlessly and go from match to match. However, I married my sweetheart about 38 years ago and she has her limitations. She's not willing to give up the house for a nomadic lifestyle. She's ok with about 3 weeks as long as most of that time is stationary. Actually stretching the range out to Oklahoma is pushing my luck but we've done Commin a cha several times. That was my argument anyway and it worked this time.
  5. I don't think Wild Bunch will ever be anything more than a side match at State and above Cowboy matches. It's just got too many little irritating things about it to grow on it's own. I enjoy shooting Wild Bunch if it's convenient. It's not one of those things I'm going to pay a lot for or shoot in the rain.
  6. I got to go to my first End of Trail this year and will get to shoot my first National Championship next year. I'm glad some of these matches are being held closer to the center of the country. I just can't justify hauling my camper all the way to Arizona. It'll be interesting to watch the logistics of a 750 shooter match. My hats off to the workers of this match.
  7. Every time a gun store clerk ever handed me a pistol, they always checked that it was empty. Then I checked it too. I guess if you get sloppy, things happen.
  8. I bought a Stevens 411 for my son to shoot about 14 years ago. It's got blond colored wood and had 28" barrels, which got cut to 20". Its not a bad shotgun for the price and can be tuned up to make it more user friendly. If she's already shot an SKB, I'm afraid she won't be happy with a Stevens 411. Never let a person on a budget borrow your SKB.
  9. I've also got the Otter box cover for my SE. Well, it's the Pendergrass Flea Market version of an Otter box which was $10.00 and no sales tax. The Mexicans and Chinese have a very efficient relationship.
  10. I had the iphone 6 for about 5 years and was happy with it. I'm not a big technogeek so a working phone and a few apps works for me. Then earlier this year, I tried to download the Fidelity App. The phone told me that I didn't have the correct operating system to download the app. and couldn't seem to get the correct system to download. After inquiring at my local iphone store, I find that some of the latest apps are not supported by the older iphones. "Phasing out the dinosaurs" was the words he used. Hmmmm. I ended up getting the iphone SE. It seems to work just like the iphone 6 but will handle all the current apps.
  11. Temperature. It was pretty cool in the mornings at the S.E. Regional. Were the guns (springs) colder than they were when they worked well? Those gun springs may be tuned so close to the edge that when the temperature drops, they loose a little tension, resulting in light strikes. When I got a TPMS for the camper, I was amazed at how much temperature affects the pressure in the trailer tires. It has the same affect on metal.
  12. Capt. Bill, This sounds like the perfect time to put those factory springs back in his pistols. Might actually give you the edge for another 6 months or so.
  13. Never heard of S.W.O.R.D. but welcome to the South. Greenville isn't heaven compared to California, but it's a local call.
  14. Yee Haw!!! I'm on the who's coming list so I guess my application did arrive. I never did receive any email confirmation and the who's coming list shows me living in Colorado instead of Georgia, but that's little stuff. I guess I'll wait and see if I got a hook up camp site or do I need to bring the generator. I've got almost a year before I need to worry about that. It's just good to be on the list.
  15. The Super Stage at the Evil Bob match. I remember it well. I'm glad you videoed it. It's kinda hard to describe.
  16. We have really enjoyed traveling to away matches. We especially like camping on the range.
  17. It reduces the butt stock to the same circumference as the forend. That way when you're shooting tactical skeet in a hurricane, the cross wind forces will be be more evenly distributed. or maybe it's a multi-attachment point for one of those tactical single point slings. I'll let you know if I come up with any other ideas.
  18. A little Google-foo research shows that this Brian Worley works at a pool company. Is that the same email address that he sent the Paypal payment to?

  19. I mailed my application and check last Saturday and no confirmation yet. I hope it didn't get lost in the mail.
  20. From my understanding, the 750 has a different way of handling the primers than the 650. This is suppose to be somewhat safer and/or more reliable. Since both of my 650's seem to be working just fine, I see no need in spending the money to improve something that isn't an issue for me.
  21. This is no big deal to me. I've been hiding gun purchases from the wife for years. The federal government should be no challenge.
  22. RIP Officer Ella French. While the Chicago Police Dept. feels it necessary to posthumously suspend you for 3 days, I find that your biggest lapse in judgment was going to work for that department in the 1st place.
  23. I'm sorry but rap music doesn't belong in a Western. Maybe I turned it off before it got good, but I wasn't impressed with the first 5 minutes.
