  1. Agreed, but I do manage to get through part of it by whiling away a few hours doing the full season's reloading. Time in the nice warm gun room makes the blowing snow and -20's seem a bit farther away...at least until I have to go out and shovel! CS
  2. Try 2,500 pcs. of 250 grain...ships in two flat rate boxes. In-town delivery mailman leaves a yellow "we missed you" slip in the box. I toss the two-wheeler in the van and head for the post office. Guy at the counter uses the two-wheeler to fetch the boxes from the back room, and is very happy he doesn't have to lift them. CS
  3. Just type SASS in the discount box... CS
  4. Makes more sense than it being called a "deer stand" anyway...How would a deer get up to such a thing? CS
  5. Our city-sponsored neighborhood association received a "cease and desist" from USPS just a couple of days after we started placing our newsletter in mailboxes and door slots of private residences. Never did find out who complained, could have been the carrier herself, I suppose. Call it in! Count
  6. Congratulations to Daisy Ann and J. W. James, High Overall Lady and Man, respectively, at The Mississippi Fandango match at the Holmen Rod and Gun Club, Holmen, Wisconsin. the annual match of the Western Wisconsin Wild Bunch. They have both put in a lot of hard work to get to the top of the list, and very much deserve the accolades. If the weather 100 miles to the north was anywhere near as cold and windy as it was here this past weekend, just hanging onto the guns was hard enough, and they both deserve a perseverance award as well! Well done! CS
  7. Local Stage Convention #1, copied from the shoot book for Fall Round-Up, the Illowa Irregulars' annual match: "1. All stages start with shooter’s choice of body posture, unless specified." I haven't received even one complaint in the years since SASS Default came into being. CS
  8. Illinois River City Regulators at Chillicothe - $10, five stages, 2nd Sunday. Illowa Irregulars at Milan - $10, six stages, 3rd Sunday.
  9. Link below should work, Patron scores on Page 12. If not, then go to SASS home page, click on the EOT box (doesn't matter that it says 2020), click on match results, then 2019, then category scores. CS https://www.sassnet.com/EoT/downloads/Scores by Category Main Match 062019.pdf
  10. Both of the clubs I represent exist as disciplines under the auspices of parent private gun clubs. Neither "cowboy" club collects membership dues, with income being completely from monthly entry fees, and also, in the case of Club #1, from our annual, which averages 110 shooters/year. Club 1: 1. Yes 2. Annually, in January. 3. Yes, primarily due to older members passing away, and in a few cases lately, to folks escaping the "great" state of Illinois. 4. Yes, if anything major. 5. Yes, but primarily in regards to profit/loss from our annual, and to our total yearly contribution to the parent gun club. Club 2: 1. Yes 2. No, except informally if some issue arises. 3. Yes, but gained others, so the total number hardly varies. 4. No 5. No CS
  11. But then you wouldn't have the single slot to put in perfect vertical alignment... CS
  12. But Checkov did mention Russia, quite often! E.g.: The Cheshire Cat was a Russian story about a disappearing cat from Minsk - The Garden of Eden was located just outside of Moscow, "a wery nice place" - "Fool me once, shame on you..." was actually a Russian proverb, etc. CS
  13. Found this explanation, which fits with the dialogue in the video. The underlining is mine. "There are three general types of inertia starters: hand, electric, and combination hand and electric. The operation of all types of inertia starters depends on the kinetic energy stored in a rapidly rotating flywheel for cranking ability. Kinetic energy is energy possessed by a body by virtue of its state of motion, which may be movement along a line or spinning action. In the inertia starter, energy is stored slowly during an energizing process by a manual hand crank or electrically with a small motor. The flywheel and movable gears of a combination hand electric inertia starter are shown in Figure 1. The electrical circuit for an electric inertia starter is shown in Figure 2. During the energizing of the starter, all movable parts within it, including the flywheel, are set in motion. After the starter has been fully energized, it is engaged to the crankshaft of the engine by a cable pulled manually or by a meshing solenoid that is energized electrically. When the starter is engaged, or meshed, flywheel energy is transferred to the engine through sets of reduction gears and a torque overload release clutch." From Aircraftsystemstech.com CS
  14. My son, Colonel Kit Coyote...anyone remember the source of the alias?
  15. Finally! The photo really I wanted to include back in Post #5 - found the thumb drive lurking in the bottom of my travel bag! Also, adding a photo of Bookworm Sandy, who passed away a few years ago.
