  1. I've had a ccw for 40+ years, but before I got it, I carried a charged, uncapped Black Powder revolver under the seat of my car. I kept a capper in the glove box. No, it was not real fast to grab and cap, but it was certainly doable for a developing situation and I was glad to have it.
  2. I've never had any problem separating the SS pins. I just dump into a rotating separator and give a few turns.
  3. Larson, my heart goes out to you on this very sad occasion. We lost our little lifelong friend a few years back. My wife was working in the garden, weeding. She reached in to pull a weed and Mandy, our little Min Poodle raced in to take the strike of the Rattlesnake that would have certainly hit my wife. Mandy died in her arms while we race to town tying to find help. We have new K9 friends now, and they are just as loving. They pick me up when I am down and are always glad to see me and just be my friend. They are without doubt one of the Joys of my life. It will take a while to deal with the pain, but please get yourself another K9 companion. Don't try to replace the one you lost... let it be your new friend. Snakebite
  4. Our club just had it's 25th annual match. For most of the past 25 yrs our Cowboy club was by far the largest group at the shooting facility upon which our range is built. That changed a few years ago, and now the IPSC club is the Big Dog. They have many new faces on their range (most of them don't have any wrinkles) and are still expanding. We have been bringing in new shooters, not at the rate we use to, but they are still drifting in (most of them have wrinkles). I think that Ike's post was pretty accurate as to Why. The one thing that I noticed at our most current annual event was the absence of a good number of shooters from a particular area, and a marked increase of shooters new to us from a different area. As more and more clubs suffer the ravages of time, I see many of the folks that truly enjoy the game reaching out to areas that are somewhat new to them. I fully expect to see our club attendance grow, not so much from new members to the game, but from old members coming from other areas looking for that last Water Hole. We have a Superb club, with a range far above what most clubs can offer and we have a tremendous pool of talented folks that jump at the chance to improve our range. I expect to see this increase in seasoned shooters turning up at our club to enjoy the game.
  5. This is all very interesting, but it is a very one sided discussion. The starring and ogling goes both ways. I finally got tired of it and started wearing pants under my Chaps. Snakebite
  6. I guess that it is all relative. For me, it is the Old Game and the New Game. At our club it's still the Early Days.
  7. 35-37 gn will do nicely. use a wad that will come up to just below the crimp, fill it with shot and crimp it. it don't make a Tinkers damn how much shot.. Few BP loads will do a better job for this game. I prefer Green Hulls, but AA will work fine. Don't be afraid to adjust the charge a bit in order to get the wad to line up. This is not Rocket Science. Snakebite
  8. Well I for one meant no insult. Just having fun. I would hope that most folks would see the humor.
  9. I have a rare 1894 Marlin. It left the factory sometime after 1879. I'll post photos when I can find film for my camera.
  10. I keep a extra 2 shell shotgun clipon in my cart to add a couple more on stages that have 8 shotgun, just in case I need them. It's quicker for me to pull them from a shell holder than getting them off a table. However, it is ok to stage ammo on the clock.
  11. It's been a longtime since I've thought about the Woodpecker. WA6CKJ

  13. Bernie, the Fort Miller match is in Clovis, Ca. It is Bigger and Better than Ever. Third Weekend in April. If yer still getting around you owe it yourself to make a run at it. Snakebite
