  1. Thank you PWB for the quick answer. One miss, one P it is!
  2. Please note the second sentence of the original post. The stage was not set that way, just simplified for the wire so everyone reading and commenting didn't have to wade through the stage to get to the important point, which was shooting the wrong knockdown and what is to be done about it.
  3. Thank you to all that answered the previous WTC. It cleared up some concerns I had when running the timer. Now I have a slightly different one based on the same stage Pistol targets have one dump target and one knockdown. Rifle targets have one dump target and one knockdown. Stage calls for 9 pistol shots on the pistol dump target and then shoot the pistol knockdown. Move to rifle and shoot 9 rifle shots on rifle dump and shoot the rifle knockdown. Shooter starts and shoots the 9 shot dump on the pistol dump target and then, instead of shooting the pistol knockdown, they shoot the
  4. This came up while working up stages. I've simplified the stage that is proposed. SG is not involved. Pistol and Rifle targets are set correctly and have plenty of room between them but are visible from either table. Pistol targets have one dump target and one knockdown. Rifle targets have one dump target and one knockdown. Stage calls for 9 pistol shots on the pistol dump target and then shoot the pistol knockdown. Move to rifle and shoot 9 rifle shots on rifle dump and shoot the rifle knockdown. Shooter starts and shoots the 9 shot dump on the pistol dump target and then, inste
  5. I live in Fayetteville east of the base. These are the clubs I routinely go to. In the Immediate area of Fort Bragg/Fayetteville are the Cross Creek Cowboys who shoot at Wagram on the third Saturday of the month and the Flat Branch Cowboys who shoot at Range 37 (North of Fayetteville) on the 4'th Saturday. I usually will be shooting there. Within in couple of hours drive, depending on where you live around the base, you have Creedmoor and Wilmington on the second Saturday, and Rocky Mount and Salisbury on the first Saturday. The New Bern group shoots every Saturday. Here's the link t
  6. If you don't have the time to shop or money is an issue, jeans, a long sleeve shirt, lace up shoes or boots and a straw cowboy hat will do fine. There isn't any club around here that wouldn't welcome you with that. The hat's not required, but it will save you from doing the "hot brass dance." I do some shooting with suit pants and vests. They came from various Salvation Army shops, Goodwill, etc. I looked for 3 piece suits and gave them the suit coat back. Usually the cost is under $20. Not necessary, but the belt loops were removed and I put bachelor buttons on them so I could use s
  7. I do not have any problems with Red Dot at the low range of powder loading. I shoot a 38 special in my revolvers with a 105 grain bullet and Federal Primers. The rifle is a 357 Magnum with a 125 bullet, same primer. Both have good crimps. Primers are all seated tightly. I check each match round, and any that don't have the primer seated below the level of the case either get reworked or go in the practice bin. We did have a couple of shooters have primer non ignition on the first cold Saturday that they didn't have previously. That may have been because the grease and oils thicken in
  8. I bought these from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YT5KRHI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They were delivered USPS. I can handle them reasonably well as far as setting up goes and they look like they will last forever. I'd stay away from any non hardened steel. They get pitted quickly and you have more splash back problems. NNV
