    There’s some pretty decent advice on here and some that I think is flat out wrong. Now you get to separate the wheat from the chaff.


    Red River Ray once told me you can’t win if you’re not willing to lose. I think that applies to all the guns we shoot, not just rifle.


    And if I might add another thing that RRR also told me:


    'regardless of how much we try, we often shoot our following shots based on the reaction of

    hitting the steel from our previous shot.   In order to help eliminate/minimize that........ shoot FAST bullets.

    They get down range fast, make a fast and resounding 'DING' and the shooter is ready to fire

    again quickly.'


    Although I shoot a .32 with 100 grain bullets, I push them fast...... pretty darn fast.  It has helped me.

    What did we do at dinner before we had smartphones?

  3. The incident above is true...... totally true.   Ole TW got swung at, but she missed.


    The thing that bothers me the most is that our wives should feel grateful because we sometimes

    look at another WOMAN.   They should feel glad it wasn't a man.


    TW....... keep ducking!

  4. Sounds like you had a double portion of crow for supper.


    So, instead of getting her that new iron and ironing board for Christmas, looks like she's now

    eligible for a weekly house maid to come in and do it all up for her.


    Now we know why they refer to your home club as 'WARtrace'.

    Try it...works great. You'll have sub-3 sec 4 shot SG strings in no time.




    Thanks for sharing my secret for speed....... ;)


    Hells Comin:  Mobil 1 in 0-20 synthetic.   You'll thank me later..... :D

    I have found that running them dry works best for me.  I have tried Armor All, Balistol, Silicone, and car wax with no improvement in how the shells shuck.  Keep the dirt off the shells and the chambers clean and maybe work on your technique a little and skip the hassle of coating the shells.  I found that most coatings make the shells slippery in my fingers and harder to load, and also attract dirt.  Neither improved my times.


    YEP, that is the secret.............. work on your technique and practice.

    Although I might build a few fast rifles, I'm not considered a fast rifle shooter either.


    BUT, I did improve my rifle performance by removing my REAR sight.   My rifle barrel only has

    a front sight.........which is a large brass bead.    I put the bead on the target and let it rip.


    AND..... I have no beads on my shotgun....... nothing.   Point and let er rip.


    Hope this helps.

    Probably handy in close quarter hand to hand.  They appear to be some type of ranger outfit.  But, I don't see any badges.  Maybe a militia?


    Except for the 2nd guy from the left on the 1st row, it could be the local 'Mustache' club..... ;)

    Never understood the logic of putting slippery stuff where it is sure to wind up on your fingers, which you certainly don't want to be slippery.  If your empties don't come out of your shotgun, a) consider cleaning your shotgun shells before you load them, b) hone your chambers, c) consider your technique.  If you insist on adding slippery goo, put some in the chambers with a bore mop.  Keep your fingers dry.


    My opinion, YMMV.




    THIS ^^^.


    I go so far as to pick up a little gravel and dirt before a stage just to help ensure my hands are also

    dry.    Keep them shells dry.
