  1. If I practice it is with 22s unless before an annual. Not interested in sounding time and gas money to go to a match that has been dumbed down because some do not have ammo. I have offered my 22 gear and ammo to those in need and so far none are going that route. I suspect I will shoot my 22s at matches this summer so my primers can last me another year or more.
  2. Phantom, I am sure you are right about match 22s but what I buy is just random whatever they have. That being said, what is a brand of match quality ammo I should look for if I wanted some for matches? Right now I just practice with 22s.
  3. I have paid from a little more than six cents a round counting tax to a little more than ten cents a round counting tax,
  4. I live so far I have not shot with them in years but the couple of times I did get to go, you are correct, they are great.
  5. “Lever and sear tuning springs” is what the package says and my smith is pretty busy till end of May so I will get it to him then. Long Hunter will tell you that even after he tunes one, the gun will be a bit stiff till you shoot it a bunch and I found that true. I have no idea what he uses for springs. Works out two of mine are from Long Hunter and the third is not so my buddy will work on it. At this point my first one is perfect in my eyes and I will not have my second Long Hunter one till at least Monday.
  6. Long Hunter recently got in some CZ Sharptails. Do not know if all are sold or not. I ordered one from him and it shipped today. I got my first from him back in January. He had to wait for this shipment to send me my second one. Only additional thing I had done to it is to narrow the extractor. So far I have about 1,500 rounds through mine and love it. I do shoot a little high with it so I aim at the feet. I have sold my three SKBs and by next Tuesday own 3 Sharptails and am not looking back as I love the CZ. The second one I got I bought from an individual and am going to have a gu
  7. Hoping to hear from you that day. What will be the area code? Try not to answer those extended warranty calls
  8. Yep, once again Comancheria Days, the annual match put on by the Texican Rangers, was a huge success. Congrats go out to Top Cowgirl Panhandle Cowgirl and Top Cowboy Colorado Jackson. If you have not had the pleasure of shooting with the Texican Rangers at the Stieler Ranch located between Fredericksburg and Comfort, Texas, you should consider putting Comancheria Days on your list. Thanks go out to all who had a hand in putting on this fine match.
  9. The Texas Historical Shootist Society hosted this year’s State Championship and Panhandle Cowgirl and Rusty Remington took Top Honors as our State’s Champions. Hats off to them and them and to category winners. Thanks go out to THSS for hosting a good match.
  10. I LOVE mine. I am a very obese woman and if I wear a shotgun belt properly (in regards to belly button) then I can not see my shells. I see many, many who do not wear shotshell belts properly but I do not want to be that person. The bandolier not only allows me to see the shells but also means my band has to travel less distance to load the shotgun if I have properly gotten it to my shoulder. Important to put the shells perhaps only about 1/3 of the way down into the loops. Also, do not pull straight up but instead when you grab lean them forward and rock them out. One other thing is t
  11. Only a few addressed how much can’t they have. I was hoping to see all ranges and see which seems to be the one preferred by more and why.
  12. 12 gauge for sure. One tiny additional positive is others will have ammo if you run short. If buying try to get Winchester low noise, low recoil at 980ft per second rather than stronger stuff.
  13. Hmmm, for general timing (dry fire probably would not matter). I like the competition electronics be. As I recall with it, when timing someone and you touch the buzzer it goes fast right 5hen whereas, if I am corr3ct, the Pact model does not go off till the finger is released. Your current need might be dry fire but down the road you may wish to time others. I live the Competition Electronics and my friend lives the Pact. Mine has held up to being dropped. Read the comments, pick one, and regardless of choice you will probably do well.
  14. I got some of those yellow, I think #10, dry wall plastic things you use when hanging pictures so you screw in to them. Obviously I do not remember what they are called.
  15. I’m a follower as it Keystone. Wishing Velvet Glove and family all the best.
  16. Never have met Velvet Glove and due to where I live likely never will but I follow her story every day. So glad she has love surrounding her and happy she is able to return that love. Her progress is remarkable and an inspiration to all.
  17. I love the wooden/leather loading blocks Missouri Marshall makes. His are more rectangular in shape with rounded ends. Fit well in a back pocket or slip between the belt and you. I prefer them over the square ones or the total leather ones. Try to borrow a couple of different styles and see what you like. Quite awhile back Colt Faro had a video on making inexpensive leather ones.
