  1. Never a problem with pin sticking in primer pocket but have had multiple problems with pins getting crossways in 38 special case. I keep thin needle nose pliers handy and check each case before reloading. Why, because before that I broke several decap pins. I did get some more pins that must be smaller because now I have fewer issues but still check them. I do thongdps the hard way. I first decap everything and then wet tumble. Check for stuck pins and then put in my press that does still have a decap/resize die. This is where I may get my decap pin ruined. I did order new pins but do
  2. Hoss Shoer, a problem I had with the SKB is it has what I call fluted metal where the wood joins the metal. Those pretty little “flutes as I call them” create a weakness and cracks have occurred for many people. I have three SKBs and all three have developed cracks. These guns have been worked on by well known gunsmiths yet cracks happen. Cracks can get real bad and guns do not work. Replacement wood is expensive. Other than that, the SKBs are good guns. Found they point better than a Stoeger. Like the single trigger that SKB and CZ has because it allows more room between trigger guar
  3. Received my CZ Sharptail from Long Hunter yesterday. It was too late to go shoot so I went out this morning and put 80 rounds then it. Too early to know for sure but figure I may be selling my SKBs and getting a second Sharptail for backup.
  4. I always only buy slicked up guns so good for you. I started with a Stoeger but they wear out sooner than higher end guns. Moved to SKB and felt it pointed better. Single trigger so I found the recoil did not come back on me as it did with double trigger. SKB is nice but I am sick of having the sticks crack/split due to stress of where metal has little flutes where it joins wood. For a cowboy shooter I practice my shotgun a lot, from picking up and shooting to putting it down as in a match. All three of my SKBs have had stock issues. I am a true believer in Long Hunter and have a new, t
  5. You will get a lot of answers but some may forget to say you should get a flip tray to help load primers with primer tubes. I prefer metal over plastic and got mine long ago from Dillon.
  6. At this time I am calling our adult 22 shooters “aged buckaroos”.
  7. Our Academy stores ( three within seven miles of me) have barely been able to get ammo for people. The ones who buy to resale at two to three times the price get there 30 minutes to an hour early to buy the three boxes they are allowed and so within 20 minutes of opening all ammo is gone. Today I got hope that maybe it will not be more than a couple of months till primers become available because today there was plenty of ammo on the shelf even two hours after opening. I have been buying 22 ammo for me and my cowboy friends. Our tiny club will have an “aged buckaroo” in order to let shoot
  8. Goody, I just sent you a pm about primers and pistols.
  9. This is so funny because I was going to ask you Saturday for your sweeps. You read my mind.
  10. Agree Cholla, our club uses facebook but all scores and information we want our shooters to have is sent through email. We do not have a website because that is "over my head" but we do use facebook and emails. I do love to go to clubs that have websites and see what they are doing but in the past year have found more than a couple that are not updating their websites which disappoints me but realize it is all volunteer work and perhaps they are just moving away from websites to facebook and email announcements. All of our club shooters do emails but not all do facebook.
  11. Like one who lets me know immediately if I jacked out a round or missed a shotgun target. Do not like one who says standbye and immediately buzzes or who speaks softly to scorekeeper when giving time.
