  1. Artic Fox has a reputation of being a very well built travel trailer. Nice setup.
  2. I wonder how long this stupid idea lasted.
  3. Perhaps something for Cowboys that attend all 7 matches would be appropriate. After all, boosting attendance is the goal. Just a thought.
  4. I know a lot of scammers use Venmo. I guess if your familiar with the customer and trust them, it would be alright. Using an online payment service to pay for a product to the shipped from a stranger is asking for trouble. That's what Visa is for.
  5. Wow. That's a lot of glasses and tuning. All they have to be spaced at just the right distance.
  6. I think it sounds like a great idea. Count me in. I might not make all 7 matches but it'll give me an excuse to try. Badlands Bob
  7. This is just putting a remote controlled gun on one of those robots that police bomb squads use. Most agencies with SWAT teams have been using this capability for 20+ years. Inserting tear gas and using a 12 gauge door breaching shotgun mounted on a robot is nothing new. Disrupter rounds out of a shotgun have been used on suspected explosive devices for many years. I guess in San Francisco, they have to debate everything that might hurt a criminal.
  8. Soccer is like watching golf or paint dry or tennis or the wife shop for shoes. If you want something entertaining to watch, tune into the UGA vs LSU game this weekend.
  9. He also cuts the barrels to about 22" and puts a new bead on. Very nice work. I have two Fast Eddie SKB's. Everything else is just....something else.
  10. Some people should just not try to take certain things to certain places. Waimea taking guns to France is one of them.
  11. It's easy. Just use the Cowboy mail service to get it to Fast Eddie down in Georgia. Within a month, you'll be ready to go. I like to do things myself but I don't think I would practice on a $1,200 SKB. I'll leave that to the experts.
  12. Capt. Bill, we don't disagree as much as you think. I ran a Wild Bunch match at Cherokee for a year and allowed any SASS legal rifle. Most local matches I've attended also allow any SASS legal rifle. State and above enforce the caliber and power factor restrictions. I was just trying to explain the thought process behind some of the restrictive rules. I don't necessarily agree with all of them. Most of the matches I've shot recently have had 7 rifle rounds and 21 to 28 pistol rounds. Obviously, just shooting 7 rounds out of the rifle is a small part of the stage. I shoot a Marlin 1894 in Wild Bunch because it was cheaper than a 73. No need for me to upgrade. Changing magazines, getting lead bullets to work in a 1911 and hitting all those far off pistol targets is much more time consuming than shooting 7 shots out of a rifle. Even shooting 6 shotgun targets with a preloaded pump shotgun doesn't take very long. Most of the emphasis has been put on shooting the 1911 with full loads.
  13. If you drill a 1/2" hole in wet pressure treated lumber and want to drive a 1/2" carriage bolt through it, you're going to need to hit the bolt squarely on the head.
  14. I've been shooting Wild Bunch, when available, for the past 10-12 years. It tries to separate itself from Cowboy Action Shooting by imposing caliber and power factor restrictions. It also minimizes the number of categories available. The 1911 pistol is by far the dominant firearm in the stage. The rifle is probably the least important, as long as you hit everything. Wild Bunch is almost a protest match against the things in CAS that the inventors didn't like. Gamer rifles, loading shotguns on the clock, mouse fart rounds and 40+ categories.
  15. I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it. Mark Twain
  16. IDPA is a whole separate game that is dedicated to shooting your CC. I vote no. Keep Cowboy as Cowboy.
  17. At least the Ukrainians seem to have the will to fight. The last couple of wars we sponsored didn't seem to be as motivated.
  18. I'll be there. I had to order a new printer cartridge so I can print off my application. Should be here next week.
  19. Cancelling vehicle chases has been pretty routine since about 2000. The liability of pursuing a traffic offence was not worth it. Our chase policy was so restrictive, we couldn't even chase stolen cars or burglars. It had to be a forcible felony like armed robbery or murder.
  20. The Triple Crown was promoted by T Bone Dooley sometime around 2012. You needed to shoot all three matches and the awards were presented at Alabama, which was the last on the list of 3 matches. The awards were presented by category and as I recall, there were about 20 people who participated in the Triple Crown. It was only done once.
