  1. Nope, I won't do it! I won't say a word about Ballistol.

    Thanks to all. It looks like our long time supplier will be able to help us after all.

    Man, I bet that hurt when they were put on while picking up your shooter's package! Maybe I could just brand everyone on the Left Cheek.

    Hey Match Directors, where do you get your name tags?
  5. I have not cut and replaced the Spur, but have notched, heated and bend down the hammer on several. As for the timing on a Colt or Clone, sometimes a simple swap will work, but my experience has had me do some work on the Bolt to get it to drop at the right time. In the early days I screwed up many of my own guns messing with the timing, just out of ignorance. It looks so simple, but can be a bit tricky. You might just try it and see where thing fall. Over dressing the Cam can get you into trouble, so go slowly if you work on it. Playing with the inside leg of the Bolt is the cheapest part to replace if you mess it up. If you are cycling the action fast, setting the timing a little early can be helpful. Just try it, then do some research on dressing the Bolt and go for it. If you need to replace it because you went too far... it's not an expensive mistake, and can be a great learning process. when adjusting the timing on a Colt, just go slow. Snakebite
  6. The “Good Old Days”. Most of us that have played this game a long time were a lot younger in the Good Old Days. Some of the things that use take place on a stage are not quite as palatable as the memory of them might seem to be. The more time that goes by, the better we were. Playing the game as the Good Old Days are perceived to have been must be tempered a bit in today’s game. Today’s retro match needs to have a measured amount of today’s game infused into it. It’s called “Balance”. Just writing stages that are full of everything that you use to do or have heard use to happen will just frustrate most shooters. I am a strong proponent of “Playing the Game”, but moderation and balance is important. Having a dish of Ice Cream is great, being forced to eat a gallon of it, is not.
  7. If the gun was fired out of battery because of a separated case, maybe the lever bent or the lifter bent and the timing is now off allowing the bolt to catch on the carrier.
  8. Does anyone have a 18" 357 Oct barrel for a Uberti 1873 rifle. Must be in very good to excel condition, both bore and bluing. I have a new 45 that I would like to convert.
  9. I have spent a lot of time running the timer. No doubt that there have always been shooters that have blamed the T.O. for the mistakes that they made. The 170 call is one that is often disputed rather heavily. One of the hardest situations is when a shooter pulls his/her pistol at the wrong location, and the T.O. yells "Move", not knowing that the shooter has already cocked the pistol. The shooter moves and then gets a SDQ. When a T.O. is slow to announce that a Shotgun Target isn’t down, it puts some shooter’s over the edge. A problem that I often see in today's game is the tendency to over use the "Benefit of Doubt” I'm very big on cutting all the slack possible, and NOT being a "Hard Ass", and in fact trying to find a way to NOT penalize the shooter. I find it more difficult to get folks to be Posse Leaders and T.O. today, than I did yesterday. One reason is because of all the rules, clarifications, the fact that it can take away from your own game. Being a Good T.O. means being a Benevolent Dictator.
  10. It's the T.O.s job to call "P's".
  11. Yeah, put a little on your index finger, but be careful if you pick your nose, you might poke your brain out when your finger goes all the way in.
  12. Man-O-Man-O-Man! That stuff does INDEED work, but you had better pay attention. Get a little too much and your guns will jump out of the holsters as you run. I've seen it on more than one occasion. I just do a good Wet=Fit on my leather and unless it is extremely humid there is never a problem. An occasional touch of wax polish inside the holster helps to keep any leather swelling down from excessive moisture. But yes.. that KG9 stuff will really slick things up, and you will drop everything that you pick up if you don't get it all off of your fingers. Snakebite
  13. Oh, I feel so ashamed.... I'll dig my 45s out of the safe and look at them.
