  1. No way to prove it one way or another but I think it's a very safe assumption to make that yes, holding the match during the school year does have that impact.
  2. Since the current version has only existed once I'm not sure that gives you enough data to draw a conclusion. But in your OP you indicated the current EOT and the previous Winter Ranger are essentially the same match. If we use all that data I'm still not sure you can draw a conclusion because, as was just said, they're the same match. Nothing's changed except the name. More to your question though, would they draw more young shooters if the match was held outside of the school year? In theory this would seem obvious but there's really no way to tell without trying it. I highly doubt they're going to try since it's sold out pretty much every year. And the only time to move it that doesn't fall in the school year would be Summer. My guess is they'd actually lose shooters if they tried to hold a big match in Phoenix in the middle of summer. All in all I see your point in that we need to do everything we can to attract young shooters. Not totally sold on this idea though. Speaking of young shooters, I found Mini Me this year.
  3. Got my new neighbor and his son hooked on our game. Son's birthday is this month and Dad wants to get him a pair of SASS Vaqueros. So the deal needs to be made pretty quickly. Thanks, Bull
  4. Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! I want to meet him. Who is he???
  5. You're going to be waiting longer than 8 months if that's your criteria.
  6. Did somebody say unwrapped treats?!?!? Tell me again which category you're in.
  7. You forgot to mention the best part of all, they'll get to meet ME!!!
  8. I'll toss in another vote for Johnny Meadows
  9. NOTE TO SELF: This is a family site. No making jokes about "just the tip".
  10. I wonder how much shipping from Oz would be?
  11. Mystery solved. Tab on the bottom of the bolt was bent. Bolt is being replaced with the new style that has a replaceable tab made of spring steel. New tab will be less likely to bend in the first place and easy to replace if it ever does bend or break.
  12. Absolutely loved them when I had them. As a fellow Duelist I found them almost perfect for one handed shooting. I say almost perfect because I prefer the extra heft of the SASS Vaqueros. That's the ONLY reason I switched. Buy with confidence. You won't be sorry.
  13. Thanks for all the info everybody. I've already talked to Boogie and have it all boxed up ready to ship. WHEN this happens again I'll keep all the above suggestions in mind. Especially the mail from Beaver. Thank you my friend.
  14. Been using one of these for many MANY years. Works great on gun parts. The one thing to note if you plan on cleaning brass is that yes, the brass will be perfectly clean but it won't be shiny. If you want shiny brass you need to stick with either a wet or dry tumbler.
  15. Straight trigger will definitely cure the pinch but will introduce another problem, timing. The face of the straight trigger sits further forward in the trigger guard. That means there's less distance for your finger to travel to get to it. That means until he adjusts the timing of his trigger finger he'll be hitting the trigger early. Since he's new this is a good time to make the transition, but he needs to be aware there WILL be a transition.
  16. Took both rifles apart and compared parts. I can't see any difference between the levers and the lifter arms. Also, the lifter spring seems to be sitting on top of the lifter lobe (Is that the correct term?) correctly. Not gonna mess with it anymore and potentially screw it up even more. Will send it back to Boogie to see what he says. Thanks for all the help. Much appreciated.
  17. Today’s Sunday and tomorrow’s a holiday. I plan on calling him on Tuesday. I’ve got a spare and am not shooting any matches for a few weeks so it’s not an emergency.
  18. Yep. Everything was buttoned up nice and tight.
  19. This was the first match after a thorough cleaning. Nothing is dirty all is well lubed. Dry fired perfectly after cleaning and performed perfectly during the match. It’s a Shotgun Boogie rifle with his short stroke kit in it. I do have an identical rifle. Will compare lifter arms and levers between the two. Will report back. (Probably tomorrow.) Gateway Kid Q1: Yes, you understand the problem.
