  1. I don't think there's any way to put an exact number on this. "There needs to be a five inch separation between each target". Instead we TRY to use common sense and leave enough space between targets in all four directions to allow a miss on one to also pass by the others. This spacing should be maintained no matter what angle the shooter is looking from. As you correctly pointed out, we have a wide variety of sized shooters in this game. (No Grizz, I'm not poking fun at you. )
  2. That’ll be my first purchase after I hit the lottery
  3. That’s another reason I’m ditching the pins
  4. I like how clean and shiny stainless steel pins get my brass. I hate the process of separating the pins from the brass. I’m thinking of switching to ceramic media. Is it easier to separate? What’s the best way to do it?
  5. So terribly sorry for your loss my friend. I've never lost a pet in that manner but they all hurt terribly when they leave.
  6. Yeah! It's Shooting Bull's fault!!! Wait! What???
  7. Since we're talking about wasting time with the shotgun I noticed another thing I was doing (not doing) that's wasting time. Let's assume you have four shotgun targets, two on each side of the bay. After you engage the first set you need to move your barrels while you're shucking empty shells and loading fresh ones. Don't just stand there with your gun pointed at the targets that are already down. When you finish your reload and close the action you should already be pointing at the two new targets. Waiting to move to the new targets after you reload is wasting time.
  8. Talking to the TO between guns really helps speed up your time too.
  9. Had the exact same thing happen just a couple of weeks ago. Not only did Dillon send a couple of new clips, they also sent a bowed washer to go under the clip and act like a shock absorber.
  10. This past weekend I was blessed to be on a posse with Ole #4. Not only is he a hoot to shoot with and an all around nice person, he’s also a fantastic Cowboy Action shooter. He was kind enough to share some things he noticed I could improve. One of the things he noticed was on a stage with movement. When I finished shooting my rifle I put it down and started grabbing for the next gun while standing still. I knew better. If you’d asked me I would have sworn I was moving. Nope, standing there flat footed wasting time. If you truly want to improve, this illustrates the importance of having someone watch or video tape you. What you think you’re doing might not actually be what you’re doing. So, what are some of the transition improvements you concentrate on? And what are some of the common transition mistakes you see people make?
  11. I’ve read the whole thread more than once. Not one single time do I see anyone accusing you of doing anything unsafe. That’s why we’re not discussing major or minor safety penalties. We’re discussing a procedural penalty. You earned one. How you earned it has been explained more than enough times. You obviously don’t like the explanations so have decided to start throwing insults. There’s an unwritten rule you’re in the process of breaking, it’s called The Cowboy Way. You should consider doing some serious self reflection. This game is supposed to be fun. And this Wire is where we come to try to help others have fun. We darn sure don’t expect to be insulted when we try to help someone.
