  1. Don't have a trade but would be interested in buying your stock if you would go that way.
  2. My opinion only - every time they have "improved" it - it's gotten worse. I made the mistake of sending them my old one back when they offered a discount for it in exchange for a new one.
  3. Pm says you can not receive messages..

      Try it again - I cleaned some out

  4. What works best for me is listen to the read through - ask questions if needed, dry shoot rehearse it, walk away when I think I have it to avoid the babbling about how others are going to shoot it. I like to spot as much as possible and shoot near the end of the posse.. Might be just superstition but I try to use the same routine at the loading table each time and when loaded leave the pistols on the table and dry shoot a few more times.
  5. Picked up stock this morning.  Excellent packing job although the post office tried to beat it up.

    Thank you

    Probably was there last Saturday - but this was first I could get there when someone was there.

      Great. Got your check too. 

      Enjoy. Shoot straight 

      Happy Trails


  6. Check with people in your local area, you can probably find some one to do it for you for the price of the components (and maybe some rolls, a dinner, jug of hooch, you get the picture). I'd suggest a box or two before you go whole hog with ten boxes.
  7. I think it was Davidsons - made a special run with 32 20 cylinder and a 32 H&R Mag cylinder, "Buckeye Special"?
  8. The mice are well trained and well rewarded - they drop the bullet after they unload but they don't have the strength to crimp the case. Currently cross breeding some with stronger sphincters - but they will be several years out until they are mature enough. Thanks for all the input, snagged an older Lee die set for only slightly more than just a seat/crimp die would have been.
  9. My regular 32 H&R mag and 32 S&W long dies won't seat and crimp the short cases. Anybody loading shorts and if so what seat and crimp die are you using? TIA
  10. Interesting question. My category has some mighty good shooters in it and the only way I place near the top is when I'm at a local match and they're off at a bigger match somewhere. Did manage to come in ahead of one guy once who had a passel of gun trouble. Went up to him afterwards and told him I always wanted to beat him - but not that way. Same situation with another fellow who I aspired to best who has some health issues and has slowed down considerably. Several years ago I bought a buckle and had these words inscribed on it - "I bought this buckle". That said - I've gotten some certificates, but I'm more interested in how I placed in my category and overall than if I get an award or not. I will always remember my first "clean shoot". I don't know the answer - like you I keep coming back for a number of reasons - trying to better myself, trying to outdo the good shooters, watching them to see what they're doing that I'm not - but most of all getting and giving some BS, hearing the steel ring and being with a great bunch of people. So, I guess my input is that it is nice to be recognized, but in my head and heart I know how I got there and if it wasn't head to head, toe to toe, all things equal and no hiccups - I still didn't "win".
  11. General practice is separate boxes for rifle and pistol, only because I load the shinier brass for rifle in hopes it will make it easier for the brass pickers to find. Hasn't worked all that well so far, but it proves I'm thinking about them. Shoot splits in the pistols and mark them with a Sharpie stripe down the side for double precaution. If I'm playing with different primers or loads, will put them in a different box, color code the head and put a slip of paper in there so I know what's what. Works well except on windy days when the paper blows away and I forget what color is what.
  12. Happy New Year! Hope to see you at the next match. We have "The Great Chili Shootout" comin up soon.. Jan 28th. Have a promo movie on the GCG web site at www.gcgunslingers.com. Look under videos and then view the Event flyer. It's gonna be a great time. Last year we made the "Cowboy Chronicle" with this event.. See ya on down the trail.. Amen S.
