  1. Here's a hoist of a cool one to our very good Pard, Buckshot Pete. Pete passed away last year on Oct 6th, 2023. SASS NO. 12668

    Pete was well known up and down the I-5 corridor in WA. and OR by hundreds of shooters of our game, and he was the friendliest, most willing to jump in and do anything Pard there ever was. 

     

    Buckshot and i shot a plethora of matches together and he will be sorely missed by the Pacific Northwest shooters.

  2. fyi for those who say 'too 'late', I"m on several reloading pages on Facebook,and the number of newbies to reloading might just surprise ya. 8 years ago when ammo all but dried up,the number of newbs was thousands. It's backed off some,but they are still out there.

  3. "Visualize the MD asking for fly inspection volunteers to go into the crowd and check everyone's crotch"

     

    uh,,that would be a...............NO !! lol

     

    for as long as this game has been around, we are still making rules. Ah well, makes for lively Wire convo .

  4. unless you need a wall hanger,don't even thing about the Thunderbolt. The rossi 92's are good little carbines,I only gave mine up because a '66 came along at a great price.

    I"m not familiar with Tradition's single actions,but my old Uberti's have many many miles on them,and still going.

     

    Welcome to the fun !

  5. I"ve never felt the need to own a gauge for .38's or .357.

     

    why?

     

     

    All my bullets I shoot are cast ,with a crimp groove. And all my . 38's are shot in .357 Blackhawks.Just never seen the need. You may not either, depending on your circumstances.

  6. Doc S. has shaky hands these days,and has had for a while,so pretty much got out of shooting, I chat with him on Facebook,he's into mountain bike riding these days, rides a lot,from his fb posts.

     

    he's on facebook under his 'other' name, Joel Shapiro.
