  1. I'm sure the hammer was down on the rifle.....and he meet requirement for revolver hammers down on empty chambers...…..next shooter
  2. Ta Daaaaa!! At least you beat max score, good job
  3. Stick with real BP and Big Lube bullets, you'll be glad you did. Clean up is real easy with any water based cleaner, I prefer Murphy's Mix. Lube and protect with Ballistol. Check out the "Darksiders Den" and the ""Dark Arts" at CASCITY for more info. Good Luck http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php?board=19.0 http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,18257.0.html
  4. You don't have to wear boots, leather shoes are just fine, as are leather work boots. I usually wear my Red Wing oxfords, have a pair of captoes for dress up Good Luck
  5. HuhI remember the Blue Plate Special down at Woolworths...…..countertop and bar stools. Meatloaf day was almost as good as two hot dogs or hamburger steak 'n gravy Yum...Yum
  6. Yep, I took a pair of Piettas to my gunsmith to have the bushing removed. He asked me "why?? they were put in with a press just like Colts.....but if you want them out I have a press to remove them and I'll polish them for you." I had them removed anyhow cause I shoot BP and was worried about fouling getting in there. He told me I worry to much, keep 'em clean and lubed and they'll be fine. Good Luck
  7. Clean with Murphy's Mix...…...Spray, patch and wipe with Ballistol So easy a caveman could do it Good Luck
  8. Yep, we still do them about every other month. Reload one and hit the bonus for chance at door prize, (free match) a miss is not a miss. I wish we still did more pistol reloads, I though they were fun, and fairly easy with a little practice. Good Luck
  9. Yep GW II by Pietta, Cimarron Frontier by Pietta are really nice, same gun as the GW II but CCH is real and they're slicked up a little. Uberti models with real firing pin, I prefer the grips on the Cimarron Model P. Don't buy anything until you have been to several matches and handled the different models. Get ahold of the match directors, they can often arrange several models to try. Good Luck
  10. Howdy Toranado, straight up to and from loading tables has been allowed since as long as I can remember, ("Muzzles Up, please proceed to the unloading table") especially when loading tables are well up range from the line. Straight up and slightly downrange is recommended for common firing lines. Straight up during the stage with a loaded long gun could be a problem either racking the slide or lever, clearing a jamb, moving with shotgun, or resetting inertial triggers. Straight down is where the toes are. Same thing in WB and the 1911, clearing a jamb straight up and it goes "bang" where does the bullet go? Straight down are the toes/feet. When we first started WB trying to clear a 1911 jamb straight up happened more than once, we quickly addressed it in our safety briefing. Maybe a first time warning since a lotta folks are not aware of it. Good Luck
  11. Howdy Hoss, we go over the 170 and shotguns at the safety briefing. I use my cane to demonstrate the most common violations , straight up is the most common. We also cover it in WB for clearing a 1911 jamb. Good Luck
  12. Howdy Cy, 357 magnum and light load just don't sound right. Try loading your .38 bullet a little long, also the 147 grain bullet is a long bullet with no crimp groove, and they work well in the Win 92 and .357 Marlin. Also check out Steve's Gunz for the Win 92 CD and spring kit. Until you get it right let her shoot your 73, which will soon become hers. 3.3 - 3.5 TG is a good load for .38 or .357, that's what I used when I started. However TG has more recoil and louder report than some of our more popular powders such as Red Dot or Clays. Stay away from TG maximum as they often exceed SASS max FPS. Good Luck Hodgdon BRM 2009 .38sp 125gr RNFP 3.2-----3.8...………………….357 125gr RNFP 4.0----5.4 .38sp 135gr RNFP 3.1-----3.6...…………………..357 135gr RNFP 3.5-----5.2
  13. Yep, Murphy's Mix for cleaning, Ballistol for after Good Luck
  14. Only that good ole German charcoal Flames and sweet smell.....Good Luck
