  1. Yes, had it done, C6-C7 and C7-T1 at the base of my neck. I have a plate spanning those 3 vertabrae and 2 screws in each anchoring it, with cadaver bone in between. This was before I started cowboy shooting, so I can't speak to a time table. But I agree that is a question to ask the medical professionals that are familiar with your case. Since shooting long guns provide impact in the form of recoil to your shoulder, and the bones take time to fuse or grow together, I would want to be as sure as possible that I wasn't going to mess anything up. That said, I was scuba diving on the great barrier reef in Australia less than a month after surgery with the blessing of the surgeon more or less....
  2. Back at cha Branchwater, and to all ya'all else too!
  3. no no no lol. Before surgery. I will be in a cast for 6 weeks.
  4. no. as one who had thumb surgery Monday due to arthritis I found that the recoil of a 1911 hurt worse than using the thumb to cock a single action revolver.
  5. I make a deal with someone ain't nobodies business what the terms were. Leaving the asking price up with the listing for info purposes may be a kindness and a good research tool, but to require it, or even suggest it is silly. That's the view from my saddle, your may be different, and that's fine, I don't care.
  6. SHB page 22 My understanding has been that an unfired round is a 5 second penalty and scored as a miss only to make it easier to score. Under that understanding the scenario above gets a bit muddy as to if those unfired rounds are truly misses and can be made up with the shotgun. However, reading the above from the SHB it would appear that an unfired round IS included in the definition of a miss, and therefor making up those rounds with the shotgun under stage instructions is an option.
  7. Around the northern Colorado area we shoot year around. But this year I'm done until Winter Range. Having my thumb/wrist cut on this Friday. In a cast for at least 6 weeks will keep me from cowboy'n. After that, the PT sure sounds like dry fire to me... Having my other thumb/wrist done after WR which will keep me out until June, but that can you do, old arthritis don't care about a fellers need to cowboy.
  8. Wow Mongo, look at you being all logical and stuff! My Marlin was straight, and I liked it. When I first tried a pards 73 it was a pistol grip, and I liked it, and I like the looks, so my 73s have the pistol grip.
  9. Same load in both. I'm lazy and it works for me.
  10. I reckon so, maybe we should move on to Rank Points vs Total time, or maybe Ginger vs MaryAnne, or any of the other ageless debates.... Happy weekend all!
  11. You've gotten a lot of good input so far, so I'll just add one thing... If you got a 73 in 45 Colt it would allow you to shoot in any category except B-Western, AND you could use it for Wild Bunch. Just something else to think about. Grizz
  12. The best punch set is the one you can find when you need it. Otherwise you snip the point off a nail, file off the rough edges and use that.
  13. while reloads are not common, they are out there depending where you shoot. More common is jacking a live round out of your rifle requiring you to reload from your belt. I recently got a brace of 45s, and jammed a 45 into two of the 38 loops, it can be done. for matches where I shoot my 38s, hopefully I'll remember to take the 45s out...
  14. I've used Fed and Win SG primers and don't know that I noticed a difference, then again I didn't do a side by side comparison either.
  15. Perhaps, but from personal experience I can tell you that beer and Cap'n Crunch is NOT a good combination....
  16. My suspenders (braces) hold up my pants, I have a D ring on the back of them, and run a strap from the D ring under and around my gunbelt to hold it up.
  17. Any time I get to shoot with Shooting Bull it is fun.
