  1. Howdy all.  Crusty Knees started a thread asking about after market triggers for his '73.  I offered to send him a couple of Slix triggers that I have laying around collecting dust.  He was excited about the offer and said he'd send me a PM with his address.  That was a couple of weeks ago and I still haven't gotten that yet.  I sent him a PM asking and have not gotten a reply.  I've had other folks ask me about the triggers but I don't want to welch on my offer to Crusty.  Does anyone here know him?  If so, can you please have him contact me?


    Thanks, Bull

    I've gotten in the habit of agreeing with OLG


    The first step toward fixing a problem is admitting you have one. Good job on that. Now go seek professional help. We’re all praying for you. ;)

  3. I have the exact opposite problem as you, not enough room in the trigger guards  So when I put Slix triggers in my rifles I didn't care for them much.  (To be fair, I was having other problems with the rifles at the same time.)  I've since gotten the full Shotgun Boogie treatment so I have two Slix triggers collecting dust in the gun room.  PM me your address and I'll get them heading your way.

    Just so I understand, the rifle not last because the the timer may not pick up the last shot?  Is this because of the rifle barrel being further away from the timer itself?  And pistols don't have this issue because the barrels are shorter?


    That's half of it.  The other half is very soft loads that aren't very loud to begin with.  But as Phantom has so rightly pointed out, a good TO knows where to hold the timer so it picks up shots from even the longest barreled rifle shooting the softest loads.  It's not rocket surgery.

    ...we duelists don't go bitching (too much...), when a match has a bunch of "Dumps".





    Speak for yourself :lol:

     Is it habit, or something else that has the stage always ending with the SG?


    Must be habit.  Our stages are pretty evenly split between ending with SG and pistols.

    You must be a mechanic.  Mechanic's hate Dodges because they can't make any money off of them.  Fords put food on their table, Chevys put gifts under their Christmas tree.

        I also hesitate after my shot string for 1 second


    As I mentioned earlier, that's one of the big things I've been working on.  MOVE after that last shot. Along with that I'm working on moving with purpose.  As has been very widely documented, I don't run.  But I do have long enough legs I can take a few steps and usually be where I need to be.  I noticed that sometimes I shuffle with little tiny steps and thus waste time.  I'm working on getting from A to B faster.

    But "I" do not do any dry FIRE practice.  (it works for others - I cannot deny the practice - for others)

    But I find that I (personally) lack the discipline to ensure sights are on target when dry firing.



    Lately I’ve been debating the merits of my pistol dry fire practice for that exact reason. 


    If I wasn’t so damn lazy I’d break out my laser dry fire system. Did I mention I’m lazy? :(


    What I’ve been concentrating on most with pistols is picking up the sights quicker to speed up the first shot. Also firing the last shot and MOVE while re-bolstering. 

  10. I had an epiphany this morning.  (The light bulb finally came on. ;))  When practicing my shotgun loading and shucking I always do six.  That way I'm ready in case a stage calls for that many or in case I need to make up one.  After "firing" the last two I save time picking up my snap caps from the floor by simply dumping them into my hand and then put them in my belt.  


    This morning's light bulb moment came when it occurred to me, that's not how I do it in a match. It then further occurred to me that one of the most common time wasters in my SASS career has been having to reshuck or finger pluck one of the last two empties before leaving the shotgun.  The final thought was that shucking and re-shouldering the shotgun to load new shells and shucking empties and laying the shotgun down are two entirely different motions.  I should practice both.  


    That's the mistake I discovered in my practice routine.  Do you have any you've discovered over the years?

    Better watch out or you'll be whipped by Shooting Bull!




    And I'd do it Duelist style, with one hand tied behind my back. :D
