  1. I did it poor boy style with a cordless drill and a socket like CC does.
  2. This was a fun match. The Spanish stage was even read in Spanish only because the posse didn't need it in English. Good job Gunpowder N Grace.
  3. My point is to reduce BP fouling in my rifle's action so I don't have to strip it down after each event. The cases seal way better with my action being at least 90% cleaner after six stages.
  4. Probably should have said Bay Area to be most accurate.❄️
  5. CRPA and Calguns are a big help but we have to pay attention to what the Libitards in Sacramento are doing hour by hour. It's unfortunate that Marin and LA Counties have the population to dictate to everyone else because much of the state is conservative.
  6. Big thank you to Colorado Coffinmaker for suggesting anealing 45 Colt cases to limit blow-by in a rifle. Finally got off my butt and did 120 cases for a test today at the Lazy Arrow. There was hardly any blow-by into the action so I deem this a complete success. Thanks again.
  7. Now it's one evil feature with a detachable magazine. The Garand only can hold eight and has a clip so is 100% legal.
  8. The M-1's are legal but you cannot bring in the magazines if they hold over 10 rounds. You may have to remove a bayonet lug if it has one as it is a California evil feature. The Garand is 100% good to go. Check out the DOJ site to be sure.
  9. I recall a specific incident at a monthly where a Black Pin instructor stopped the posse after three 170° violations in a row while holstering cross draws to bring it to the attention of the entire group. It was effective for a stage or two then the same violaters were back in the same rut. No SDQs were called, the BPI simply gave up and stopped running the timer so he wasn't in a position to make an unpopular call. Breaking the 180° with straight hang holsters happens too but usually less frequently and generally when the holster is missed. It happens with long guns while moving as well so this isn't solely a cross draw problem, it is a consistency in enforcement problem. The cone would officially address the holstering issue and give the shooters a bit of latitude.
  10. To understand the magnitude of the violation, set up a camera at 180° to the firing line. You'd be surprised at how often it happens.
  11. Howdy pard, shootout at the Lazy Arrow this Saturday if yer interested. Nice range on the historic Camatta Ranch.
  12. While this is true, it isn't the sweeping of oneself that it the issue, it's the angle of the sidearm pointing uprange while holstering, albeit with the shooter in front of the barrel. Phantom is right in that the folks that transition to the weak hand to holster a cross draw are the bulk of the offenders. I started a thread a couple of years ago and was summarily trashed by the folks who said they always make those calls and that they rarely happen. The thread went for several pages with no one really understanding what I was trying to get across. The fact is, the violation happens all the time while rarely being addressed. I have actually had to demonstrate the violation to guilty parties so they truly understood what they were doing wrong as well as a technique to alleviate the situation. Most were unaware of the sidearm's orientation during the holstering sequence.
  13. I totally agree. (Oh crap, I just agreed with Phantom )
  14. I think of the opening scene in Gunsmoke where Matt is standing upright with his feet spread as an example of SASS default.
  15. Great to see you hear Shorty, learned allot from the Colt discussions.
  16. Comin At Cha WR Fort Miller Hell on Wheels
  17. 38WCF is my choice. I run an original born in 1892 and a Chaparral. Both are sweet.
  18. Actually, it's not nearly as bad as folks want to make it Captain. The sections relating to the carry and transportation of firearms is only a few pages long and simple to understand. I like your parable of boiling the frog and yes we are used to the heat but our firearm transportation rules are easy to comply with :-). You can come to California with your SASS guns secured in your trunk without worry. The trunk is considered a locked container, just have them unloaded. If you want to bring your CW, as long as it has a magazine capacity of 10 rds or less, it must be in the trunk or in a locked container and unloaded as well. It's a bit of a PITA but not hard to comply with. If you get stopped for speeding :-), the CHP will not ask you if you have any firearms unless there is probably cause to believe you have committed a crime. The difference between DDD and me is he is a regular citizen with a CCW whereas I am a 30-year LEO with 25-years as a rangemaster. I am required to know the current laws regarding firearms and legal carry of concealed weapons as well as the specific parameters of the use of deadly force. Many folks simply don't take the time to do their own research and rely on what someone says. My whole point in injecting my comments into the thread is to keep misinformation from being spread. When I travel out of state, even though I am covered in all 50 states under LEOSA, I make sure I know the state laws regarding CW carry because some jurisdictions won't honor Federal Law, that's just good business and keeps me out of trouble. The biggest difference out here is we don't have the Castle Doctrine so our threshold for the use of deadly force is much higher than where you live. That doesn't mean you can't defend yourself or that you are required to retreat, it just means there has to be a defined threat to life in order to use deadly force. Come on out to California if you get the chance. There are a lot of great clubs and folks who will welcome you. Let the clubs know in advance and I'll bet you get guns offered up for you to use if you're not comfortable bringing your own. If you want more information, you can PM me and I will be happy to pass on or find out what you need to know.
  19. CAPC 16850 speaks to what is considered a locked box. The console and glove box are specifically spoken to as not a lawful locked container even if they are lockable. What is on your CCW may be a local suggestion, recommendation, or requirement that is not supported by the CAPC. If you carry a lawfully permitted firearm in an area along with your vehicle registration, inform the LEO contacting you of the presence of your sidearm prior to opening the area to retrieve your registration so there are no surprises for him or you. Long guns are considered unconcealable and are not governed by the CAPC when transported in a vehicle. In rural areas, you will commonly find farmers/ranchers/hunters with unloaded long guns carried in open sight within reach of the owner as they conduct day to day business. The language is ambiguous when said firearms are carried to and from your vehicle in an urban environment but when open carry was abolished, there was some talk of including long guns in that order. I am unclear if long guns have been included in the open carry restriction or not. It would make sense to err on the side of caution in such instances and have them in a suitable carrying case, no lock required. While not required to be kept out of sight in a vehicle, it makes good sense to keep long guns covered up in some manner if you must leave them unattended. The CAPC sections on firearms and weapons is more than 130 pages long and is very enlightening to read about things we assume are true. Don't take what someone says as gospel, read the book or call the CADOJ for an answer.
  20. DDD, if you are going to cite applicable law, please be accurate. 1) Carrying a firearm in consoles and glove compartments are prohibited ONLY because those locations are specifically not considered lockboxes. You MAY carry a firearm in either location with a CCW. 2) Only handguns and rifles that fall into the assault weapon category must be carried in a suitable locked box. Standard hunting/sports rifles/shotguns may be carried in other manners that are not secured by a lock. JJ
