  1. As my mom would say, "...bright eyed and bushy tailed."
  2. The lead shooter holds the world record for most shot in an hour at over 3,000 rounds. Here's a Guinness link for 12 hours https://guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/most-clay-shooting-targets-broken-in-12-hours-(team)
  3. A little bit of smoke? Apparently this guy isn't at all familiar with black powder.
  4. Our local Cabelas is a ghost of what it was when I started shopping there 10 years ago. At that time, they complimented the local Bass Pro. If you wanted hunting gear, firearms, ammo and reloading supplies, you went to Cabelas. If you wanted camping, fishing gear and clothing, you went to BP. Yes, there was overlap, but each had its own niche. The trigger lock policy and scarcity of reloading supplies sealed the deal for me, so there's no reason for me to shop at either store. I'm guessing the Cabelas name will eventually disappear. If there was enough money in the stuff that appeals to us, they'd still be offering it. But I'm sure the bean counters and lawyers have decided we aren't worth the effort in the overall scheme of things. I have other options, so it's no skin off my nose.
  5. Our home club is the Powder Creek Shooting Park which is a trap, skeet and sporting clays range. Today, Professional shooter David Miller of CZ-USA Firearms and four youth shooters are attempting to break a world record. They will be trying to break the most number of clay targets shot by a team in a twelve hour period. The current record is 4,602. That's targets broken, not shots fired. I watched for a few minutes after our cowboy match where each shooter shot at pairs of trap targets. There's no time wasted between shooters and those clay birds are being thrown up like fireworks. The event started at 10:00 am and ends at 10:00 tonight. I'm tired just thinking about it. Whew!!

  6. This happened in my community's school district and police department. The Overland Park police have a good reputation and aren't prone to overreaction. I'm betting there's much more to this story than just pointing fingers like a gun. As such, I'm not gonna point my fingers at authorities without more info. We'll likely never know the details as it involves a juvenile and out here these things are kept private.
  7. Unless the rules have changed recently, the larger fixed sights like on my Colt govt. model are acceptable for traditional. The white dots however, have to be blacked out. To the OP, that's pretty cool. If I had some excess cash (and it seems I never do), I'd consider getting one.
  8. I’ve a box of Sears 12 gauge shells my dad bought in the early 60’s. Look like new and still go bang.
  9. Capt’ Baylor reviews on in the latest Chronicle.
  10. ...and runway behind you and gas in the truck. I know this type airplane well. Could be the fuel selector valve was mismanaged.
  11. Yuck! And I was getting grumbly because it's supposed to get into the 30s on friday!
  12. Not being made anymore. The OP’s list is guns still in production.
  13. Sad, ain't it? I stopped going to the annual air show in my area. Ticket prices kept going up and the entire flight line was blocked by viewing stands reserved for those willing to pay NFL-like VIP prices. And beyond a performance by the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels, there's been little to see. Gone are the days of back-to-back civil aviation performances and military demonstrations before the climax of the day of TB or BA jets.
  14. Bet he can't do that so easily with a roll crimped bullet!
  15. I had an identical one 'cept it was green. Might have been Cabella's branded or RCBS, but it broke after a few years. Replaced it with a Lyman brand with metal shaft. Works like a charm. I'm sure it's offered under different brands. I'm guessing they all come from the same factory but with different labels.
