    And this is why I posed my question for the people that didnt know. It is easy for people to get confused on this and I wanted to show the difference to them.

     

    Chief, you are wrong because the shooter didnt engage the targets in the correct order. The 3 rounds left in the revolver are SCORED as misses. This isn't a miss causing a P. It is in fact a P plus the 3 misses. Go back to that miss flow chart and see if they were engaged in the correct order.

    TW,

     

    I stand by call - three misses.

     

    Think first five rounds - second five rounds.

     

    Per your scenario: with first five rounds engage P1 twice then engage P2 three times, then with second five rounds engage P3 five times.

     

    Shooter draws first revolver and engages P1 twice then holsters.  Shooter then draws second revolver and engages P3 five times.

     

    The correct targets were hit in the correct order.

    I'll do that when I'm able to get to s computer this afternoon. Can't see it on the phone.

    I know it doesn't make sense, but it happens. I'm looking for the P. I didnt say in my original reply what if it was a specified order and meant to.

    If the shooter starts to holster after the first two rounds as TO I'm hollering THREE MORE. 

     

    If they still holster and shoot P3 with five rounds, and they don't attempt to re-engage P2...

     

    That has me thinking. 

     

    Still just three misses for the three unfired rounds in the first revolver. The shooter is choosing to take three misses on P2.

     

    If they re-engage P2 after P3 - then it's a P.


  4. Just now, Tennessee williams said:

       Incorrect because there is no specified order on the string, right?

    If directions were:

    Put 2 rounds on p1, then 3 rounds on p2, then 5 rounds on p3.

    Shooter puts 2 rounds on p1 then holsters the first pistol and puts 5 rounds on p3 with 2nd pistol.

    Then its p and 3 misses, right?

     

     

     

    Not if there's a malfunction with the first pistol and the shooter chooses to take the three misses on P2.

     

    But then, the shooter couldn't holster the first pistol. It needs to be declared and grounded.

       As opposed to shooter holstering after hitting the first target with 2 rounds and skipping the 2nd targets 3 rounds and finishing up with the last revolver on target 3 with 5 rounds.

    Then, P and 3 misses correct?

    The OP stage instructions are for a round count - no particular order. 

     

    Why a shooter would holster after two rounds if there wasn't a malfunction doesn't make sense. 

     

    But, the shooter could still shoot the first target twice, holster and draw second pistol and shoot the third target five times, holster the second pistol and redraw the first pistol and shoot the second target three times.  No call.

     Others point out that there is a lot of ways to get a competition gun, SASS classifieds for example. 

    Or by going to a local match and asking if anyone has anything for sale...

     

    After you've shot it to see if you like it.

     

    May already be slicked up, even...


  7. Quizcat - have you shot either an 1873 or a '92?  Or a Marlin '94?

     

    Most shooters have a definite preference for one rifle over the other two.

     

    Then add the difference between a straight stock and a pistol grip - some shooters again find one better for them than the other.

     

    I strongly suggest you shoot some rifles in different configurations, that are slicked up by different 'smiths, before you hand over any money.

     

    I also recommend you do the same for pistols.

     

    All 'smith-work is not the same.

     

    If you've only ever shot a new, out-of-the box Uberti rifle, a Taylor-tuned version will feel considerably better. IMHO

     

    If you can shoot rifle's that have been tuned by any of the other 'smiths, side by side, you can start to feel differences in the action.

     

    Not to say that any one 'smith is better than another, but they are different.

     

    And, some people prefer the feel of one particular 'smiths work to another's.


  8. TW - glad you're OK.

     

    I wear prescription glasses, especially needed for close up work.

     

    I use to have a pair for regular wear and a pair for shooting.

     

    My regular pair did not have side shields or wrap-around lenses.

     

    I've since gone to wearing "safety" glasses all the time.

     

    Specifically, I wear WileyX Kobe frames with polycarbonate transitional progressive lenses.

     

    May not be the most stylish but I never forget to change glasses.

    If Cali got the rain we've been getting there'd be nothing but bare rock from the mountains to the sea.

  10. A lot of the different "brands" are actually all owned by the same parent company these days.

     

    This link to Forest River will show you their "brands".

     

    While not always true, quality also comes with a price.  What is your budget? (rhetorical question)

     

    Regardless of where  you go for reviews, you're pretty much only going to here from the people with problems.

    Howdy, Chief,

    It's been snowing hard since about 0300, and apparently will continue.  Road conditions are miserable; the plows can't seem to keep up with it.  Haven't heard about whether I-70 is open to the East.  Lots of accidents reported as of 10:00 news report. My wife and I are hold up in south suburban Denver.  I know that to truckers time is money, but if I had to make a recommendation to your daughter, I'd say stay put!  Hopefully, this system will move out in the 24 hrs or so.  Not bad weather...for January! :o :P  Oh, and we need to prepare for global warming! :unsure:

    She's not going anywhere.

     

    While she may not be making money, the company at least put her up in the hotel for the duration.

     

    All she has to provide for is food.

     

    My wife is actually laughing at most of the "news" reports.  While this is not the norm, it's not exactly unusual either I take it.  She grew up in Evergreen.

    Denver and vicinity: Second snow of the season, but this one started early Sunday morning and is still going on!  Forecast is maybe 8-inches accumulation.  Interestingly, the streets aren't all that deep, but the colder temps are making for black ice, and CDOT is saying stay off the roads!

    My daughter is a truck driver. Delivered to Denver last week and had to put her truck in the shop due to an air leak and APU problem. KW got the air leak fixed Saturday but now she can't get the tractor to ThermoKing to fix the APU. Hope she can get it over there tomorrow and get back on the road. 


  13. I've never used a Cody-matic rifle so I can't comment on that. 

     

    I'd call Taylor's and ask who does the work and then call that 'smith to discuss if you're interested. 

     

    Otherwise, call the 'smith of your choice and ask them about ordering the rifle and doing the work. 

     

    I do highly recommend feeling the short-stroke/action job of the 'smith you want to go with before ordering. Even if they all use the same parts, setup and feel can be drastically different.

  14. Comparing the 450 to the other two is kinda apples & oranges.

     

    First question - what do you plan on using it for?

     

    If you want to go trail riding, do the trails have limits on the width for ATVs?

     

    While it's true the military has been buying/using Polaris products - that doesn't mean they're the best for everyone.

     

    True, the Polaris units typically produce more power for a given size, but that power comes at the expense of more wear and required maintenance.  My experience tells me that the Polaris and Can-Am machines are purchased more for the high power and abused by the owners, which then leads to more repairs and bad dealer experiences.

     

    If you want a workhorse that will last forever, I believe you'd be hard pressed to look beyond the Honda products.  I am partial to EFI over carbs, though.
