  1. Yep - Bonuses are bogus. Just call it what it is a target that must be hit if you want to score well. Pain for scoring as well since folks forget to mark it on sheets and harder to proof.
  2. When I was in College some 40 years ago, I had a Lyman spar-t mounted to a board about 18"x24". The board was mounted to a 2" diameter pipe of about 3 feet long using a floor flange. I had another 18x24 board on the bottom again with the other end of the pipe in another floor flange. and I would sit and put my feet on the bottom board and load. Easy to store in a closet and I could sit and reload quite easily.
  3. On a different note - You can use the Martini in the Bucky Oneill single shot event at Winter Range.
  4. I suspect, since the powder was titegroup, the rat was having difficulty moving its bowels.
  5. I consider everything pre SASS wire as old days. So 2000.
  6. That is the way we score WR. There were a half dozen scores that were longer than the maximum score for the stage (which varied from 140-160 sec depending on number of shots) and so were defaulted to the maximum score.
  7. Folks need to start thinking about their responses a bit more. If you wouldn't say it to their face, perhaps the tone should change.
  8. I like to use Woody lines from Toy Story; Reach for the sky! This town ain't big enough for the two of us! Somebody's poisoned the waterhole!
  9. Interesting discussion - much that has been said before however. I enjoyed this years EOT but I didn't shoot it well. Worst finish in nine years. My excuse is not that the match was too hard. I just haven't been shooting much in the past two years. I liked the movement, I liked the target placement. I also think that folks are comparing to the the wrong sport. IF you want to compare it then compare it to GOLF. Why golf, because the courses change. The US Open is traditionally set up much more difficultly than a standard pro golf event. You could also compare it to Old time Pro baseball. Some stadiums had very short outfields - read up on the old Polo Grounds - the home of the New York Giants. I've seen EOT with very long rifle targets - heck in 1992 some were 40 yards out. and Pistol yards were 15-20 yards out. And slowly over the years, the targets got closer. I think when T.A. was in charge they were down almost to Bordertown distances and attendance did go up. So this year they were out a bit more - works for me. I'd recommend it to anyone.
  10. Send me your address so that I can tell you what the shipping will be for the butt plate
