  1. http://www.oowss.com/_RO_ Corner/OVERLOADING EDITED 2020.pdf
  2. There is NO codified restriction regarding that distance.
  3. That design was introduced by Ithaca in 1963. SOURCE If you can find a similar lever-action single shot "of the period" (1860-1899) it MIGHT be considered...otherwise NOT LEGAL in any category. REF: SHB p.40
  4. I acquired an original GW .357 Atomic as payment for a $50 debt many years ago. It was non-functional due to a solid brass "replacement" bolt having been installed. A few months after taking it to a LGS for repair (fitted a Colt bolt and trigger), I foolishly traded it off at a gun show for a Hawes Western Marshal. About a month later, "Guns and Ammo" printed an article on the history (and current values at the time) of the Great Western SAs. Major regrets for THAT deal!
  5. Here's another example of the importance of reading the ENTIRE section of a rule in the proper context: SHB p.28 Does that last line mean that the shooter can drop the loaded firearm, break the 170° rule, or sweep others with the loaded "malfunctioning firearm" on the way to the ULT (after making it safe during the stage engagement) with NO PENALTY?Does declaring a malfunction negate the 5-second "miss" penalties for any "unfired rounds"?It does NOT if that statement is read & applied in the CONTEXT of the previous two statements re penalties for "round(s) remaining".(and common sense re safe firearm handling).IMO...the rule re assessing a SDQ for arriving at the LT with uncleared firearms needs no "editing" for clarification.
  6. Take up WHAT, exactly? How to handle a shooter who might LIE to get out of a penalty? If I was the T/O or PM, I would be verifying whether anyone observed the shooter clear both revolvers on the previous stage and/or ask the shooter to prove the existence of an "extra" revolver. If caught in the LIE, the penalty would be a MDQ for "unsportsmanlike conduct" instead of the SDQ.
  7. That completely ignores the very FIRST sentence in the referenced section: Which is what I meant regarding CONTEXT. ...and, BTW, that quoted response was hidden, then deleted for a reason.
  8. There hasn't been a penalty (of any kind) for "overloading" a rifle since 2011...up until then it was a MSV.
  9. To reiterate: "The revolver was not used on the previous stage, so there was no penalty for "failure to adhere to loading and unloading procedures" as that ONLY pertains to firearms actually USED on a previous stage.That section of the rules must be read in its entirety and in the correct context."
  10. What part of the quoted statement is unclear?
  11. How exactly does one individual's action/inaction reflect on how complacent WE have become about gun safety (unless the violation was ignored) ?
  12. NO CALL. The revolver was not used on the previous stage, so there was no penalty for "failure to adhere to loading and unloading procedures" as that ONLY pertains to firearms actually USED on a previous stage. That section of the rules must be read in its entirety and in the correct context. IMO...New rules or amendments are neither necessary nor required to cover the OP situation. ........................ Walking around with a fully LOADED (w/ unfired rounds) firearm off the firing line is a violation of: SHB p.17 as well as: SHB p.23 (aka the "Cold Range Rule"...with penalties up to and including a MDQ depending on range rules)
  13. The only SHB reference to NRA rules is in regard to OPTICAL category regs (p.33).
  14. Any of us who might be immunocompromised and/or immunosuppressed (due to disease or medications) are extremely at risk...particularly to new strains of viruses or infections. Limiting physical contact (e.g. by wearing gloves or masks) would be a "common sense" precaution under those circumstances. Having already experienced GPA, pneumonia, MRSA, BK, E.coli, and parvo, I personally have no desire to become another CDC statistic.
  15. Working on that right now. SHB references also being updated THNX YES...see the referenced doc. That is stated there more than once.
  16. There is NO PENALTY for overloading a rifle at the LT. It used to be a MSV...until 2011: REFERENCE
  17. Any way to relay it via "Cowboy Express"?
  18. Yes, Territorial Ryder is there...the "Who's Coming" list shows 26 from Orygun.
