  1. Especially important on her birthday! (which one is the tongue in cheek emoji?) Regards Gateway Kid
  2. So is it like after your fifth sentence they just send you your pin or is it something you have to purchase at their online store? asking for a friend Regards Gateway Kid
  3. Good man! Everyone knows shiny guns are faster!!! Regards Gateway Kid ps traded all them blued guns I used to have for shiny guns and stage times dropped by nearly .001! Less wind drag I guess!
  4. Midway doesn’t have any but it works out to $3.22 per ounce for the 9 ounce bottle and approximately $52 per pound in a two pound jug. Plus shipping, plus hazmat Regards Gateway Kid
  5. Glad you are back. Always appreciate your point of view and heart for making things better!! Will have to catch up at EOT. Not sure of posse number but will be a marshal for one of them. See you there Regards Gateway Kid
  6. As long as we are chatting, I had the pleasure of shooting with Miss Scarlett last EOT (things blur together these days ) Fun to shoot with, great posse member and really nice person! Very knowledgeable about her products. Even bought a few things that have worked out well for me. Looking forward to seeing her at this EOT! Regards Gateway Kid
  7. Welcome! in no particular order any of these would build you a terrific rig to your specific needs. Kirkpatrick Leather Mernickle Leather Michigan Rattler Regards Gateway Kid
  8. I have three 9mm guns that I use the same Cheycast 124 gr. bullet in. Ruger PCC, Sig 938 and a Glock 19 with a Lone Wolf barrel. All seem to like 1.11 OAL with either 3.2 gr. Clay Dot or 4 gr. Bullseye. My jacketed load with 115 gr. Remington uses 4 gr. Bullseye at 1.10. All feed flawlessly, are more accurate than I am and the empty brass tends to all be in the same place. I also have a few left of OLG’s load of 7.2 gr. Blue Dot with a full jacketed 115 gr. Remington. Since I am currently out of BD I have been reserving those for either my Beretta 92 or a Taurus 99. They cycle really well in the bigger pistols and are very controllable shot to shot. They are also at 1.1 OAL in my guns. Regards Gateway Kid
  9. Watched them all. worked fine and nice shooting! Regards Gateway Kid
  10. Congratulations! Just remember three rules…. 1) Be Safe 2) Have Fun 3) Be Safe! Depending on what part of the country you’re in maybe we will catch up with each other and enjoy a match. Regards Gateway Kid BTW one more thing CAS is not the Wire and the Wire is not CAS.
  11. Praying for your health and a complete healing. Take it easy and get well soon, Champ! Regards Gateway Kid
  12. I love those videos! Up to number 42 I think it is. Regards Gateway Kid
  13. Cool! Next up…. 325 yards offhand You know, just for a little challenge! Regards Gateway Kid
  14. Shot shell presses run the gamut from dirt cheap ($100 or so) to pretty expensive ($3000 plus). Something like a Lee Load All might be all you need, but will be fairly slow. A Spolar Gold or PW will make a lot of good shells very quickly (and last forever) but upfront costs might outweigh any cost benefits unless you are a high volume shooter. Middle ground would be one of the MEC’s. Moderately inexpensive so you can buy a model that fits what you need. I started with a Sizemaster which makes good shells, is fairly fast and most importantly resizes the base with a collet system to minimum specs. If you choose to upgrade to a progressive the 9000GN works great (what I use now) and is much faster. The 600 series are less expensive, make good shells but are not as automated. great to learn on. One very important point, shotshell reloading is not nearly as forgiving of interchanging components as cartridges, manuals are very specific and should be followed. A mentor would be wise. If you are already reloading your cartridges you can reload your shot shells. Good Luck Gateway Kid
  15. Or the 5 feet of emptiness between their ears! Regards Gateway Kid
