  1. I started in this shooting sport back in 2003.. I thought.. I'm gonna be wearing and standing in these boots fer maybe 4-5 hours.. I wanted them comfortable.. I found a pair of Double H western boots.. When trying them on for sizing I wore a thicker pair of knee high socks and put a thick padded insole inside the boot.. I got a size big enough to accept the thicker sock, the insole and my foot.. I still wear the same pair when I go shootin' .. Rance Thinkin' they're still comfy..
  2. Your only real potential problem with the '66 Yellowboy?? Is the loading gate.. If you like that brass look?? Get ya a '66 Yellowboy and reinforce the little tab on the loading gate.. It WILL bend or break off at the most inopportune time... Just reinforce it.. many threads on this ol' wire on how to do it.. Only other thing is the '66 doesn't have a lever safety.. Rance Thinkin' that's just my 2 cents.. But then agin.. There's a coin shortage
  3. Also.. Lever the gun to cock the hammer.. Now push the hammer forward hard with your thumb.. If it closes?? Probably sear work.. Rance Still ain't a gunsmith tho
  4. Is this a '66 with a lot of rounds (wear) through it? Could be the notch that holds the hammer back has just worn down.. I had a '66 that done this after years of shooting.. I reworked the notch and it got rid of the hammer locking problem.. Rance Thinkin' I ain't a gunsmith
  5. I kinda go along with Black Hills Barb.. I started back in '03 shooting the big old model Vaquero's in 38 special.. 5 1/2" barrels.. When my wife started the next year (after shooting my Vaquero's) she wanted the same set.. She has small hands but handled them fine.. She wanted purtier ones so I got her a set in stainless.. After shooting them for a year or so a couple ladies in our group TOLD her she NEEDED some smaller pistols.. To fit her hands better.. Sooo... I got her a set of Ruger single sixes.. in 32 cal.. She shot them about a year maybe.. Said they had more recoil.. She went back to her original Vaquero's and hasn't looked back.. Rance Thinkin' she finally let me sell 'em about 3 years ago
  6. I set my par time at 30 seconds and do all my guns.. Rifle 10 rounds, both pistols 10 rounds, shotgun 4 rounds.. I set my first beep on random start.. 1 second minimum to 4 seconds maximum. Doing all the guns will help a lot with your transitions.. That's where a lot of stages are won or lost.. Doing your guns individually will not give you transition practice.. If ya make it in 30 seconds.. Lower your second par beep on par time.. and keep going.. Rance Thinkin' this might help.. oh yeah.. Ya need some dummy shotguns shells.. I use the plastic orange ones..
  7. I'll 2nd. That.. Double pay.. And yes.. PaleWolf does an excellent job and I sure appreciate it!! Rance Thinkin' yer job is purty darn safe..
  8. My wife Lacey Corsette has quit shooting.. She has some riding skirts and complete outfits.. She needs time to get them together from her closet.. Also.. I've never been good at posting pictures here but she is excellent with messaging pictures.. The things she has will always be quality stuff.. Rance
  9. When I made glitter shells for my shooting partner Lacey.. I put the glitter in after lead was dropped.. I put it in with a very small measuring spoon.. I then put that shell on the lid of my vibrating brass cleaner.. It sifted down through the shot and then I did the crimp stations.. Rance Thinkin' I don't remember a whole bunch of glitter all over but there had to be some
  10. Just got back from a little practice with S&W 38 special w/3" barrel Ruger 22 auto and Ruger LCP 380.. I shoot at target that are on 8"X11" paper.. Targets might be 7" circle.. The other day at 20' two handed.. The 38 special was all on target in the circle.. The ruger 22 auto was all on target in the circle.. The LCP was all low and all over the paper and some not on the paper.. Today I shot all of them ONE handed at 12'.. The 38 special were all near center on paper.. Even shot 2 at 20' and hit within 2" circle.. Sweet little shooter.. The 22 auto.. Was all within a 4" circle.. The LCP were all on paper but all on the lower half.. No sight adjustment.. Thanks for all the feedback and info.. Rance Thinkin I'm going with accuracy and speed right now.. I shoot each gun til empty with multiple shots.. Not singles and re aiming every shot.. I will still need practice on offhand and different positions..
  11. Thanks for all your advise and input.. I always know I will get the straight honest scoop from fellow SASS pards.. Rance Thanks
  12. Marshall Hangtree.. Good point shooting one handed practice.. I also thought shooting from the hip practice?? Rance
  13. Went out last week.. Was practicing at 30' for concealed carry.. when I got home I googled it.. Mosts Google posts said 6' to 10'.. What do you all think.. Rance
  14. Rye.. Picked up one.. I got an "Uncle Mikes" and the 3" barrel works with the same one you got.. Thanks a lot.. Rance Thinkin' my local gun dealer had 'em
  15. Rye.. I also have that pistol.. just wondering if it will accommodate a 3" barrel? Rance Thanks for your reply.. the rest of it looks good..
  16. I just got a S&W J model 36 in 38 special with a 3" barrel.. I think I'd like a cross draw (right hand dominant) inside the waist band.. Any suggestions?? Rance
  17. Just have it cut down, recrowned, front sight reinstalled and short stroked by 1 reliable gunsmith.. Rance Thinkin' easy peasy
  18. Central Illinois.. No!! still waiting for July .. maybe..
  19. Well.. I reckon I would agree with PaleWolfs call.. Rance Thinkin' he got it right!!
  20. No resemblance of a shooting order and you have 10 people in line to shoot and 3 people and the RO working the stage.. Rance Thinkin hey.. you asked
  21. As many have already said.. My first rig had maybe 20 cartridge loops.. I kept them full and showy fer about 3 matches.. Then I took them all out.. I already had 5 loops on each side of my shotgun belt.. I use them for my rifle reloads.. (Nickel plated cartridges so they don't mold) When I had a new rig made.. NO cartridge loops on the belt at all.. I Still use my same old shotgun belt for rifle reloads.. Rance Thinkin I had enough weight to carry around me
  22. This was the only negative I saw when reading the scenario.. Rance Thinkin' yer good to go on the rest of it..
  23. I found the bullet and powder load I was gonna use. When sighting my pistols in.. (Yep years ago) I happened to file one down way too far.. I bought a set of Slick's brass front pistol sight covers to raise it back up.. Rance Thinkin' solved my problem of taking off too much..
