    Why do so many people shoot Western Action using two hands? I've seen as many western movies as anyone else and can't remember any cowboys ever using two hands to aim and fire their pistol, have seen women in movies using two hands.

    How did the two handed grip come about to be so prevalent? Has it been from the get go or did it creep in and slowly become the norm for most?


    You have to remember the roots of Cowboy Action Shooting.  It started in the late 70's with a group of action pistol shooters (early IPSC) who decided to give it a go with Western-looking firearms.  Whatever they could dig up.  They just continued the way they had been but with different firearms.  They shot the way they had been traditionally shooting... (therefore the "Traditional" designation).  Once a core of them formed the Single Action Shooting Society in the 80s, they began to slowly designate different categories.  Those shooting the fixed sight guns with two hands formed the Traditional Category.  Those using adjustable sight revolver were placed in the "Modern Category".   There was a "Black Powder Category", and soon those who wished to shoot one-handed got the "Duelist" category.

  3. 500+ pcs mixed headstamp .357 Brass.   Most once-fired, some new, never fired.   These have been sized, deprimed, and wet tumbled, then inspected.

    some extra added just in case.

  4. Do you reload ammo?

    If not, be prepared to spend 120.00 per match plus tax and shipping for .45 Colt ammo.

    That's not counting any practice you might want to do.

    If the bug bites deep, as with some of us, and you start to shoot 2, 3, or 4 matches a month.  Price to fuel the hoglegs rises steeply.


    If you do reload, it seems to be a little easier to get large pistol primers than the small pistol primers.

  5. 1000+ pcs of one-fired Remington-Peters .38 Special Brass.   These have been sized, deprimed, and wet tumbled, then inspected.

    1000 pcs plus some more tossed in, just in case.

    Any Aussies ?


    I put entries on the list as I get input.  So far, just these on the list from the U.S. and one from Canada.  Come on folks there must be some good gunsmiths in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe!   What about the States missing from the list?  Anybody?

  7. One of my canes is a Cold Steel with a weighted stainless steel knob.   I haven't walked with it much.  It's legal in my locale with my permit.  But, it's easier to use a crosier handle for resetting shotgun targets.

    Thank you!  I've done the addition and the deletion.  Appreciate it.

  9. Help us update our Cowboy Gunsmith reference list.  
    If you know of a Cowboy Gunsmith who has an extensive background working on our guns and/or modifications for our game.  Let me know and I'll update the list.   Also, if a gunsmith on the list has retired, let me know so I can take them off.  This is what I have so far...

    So Colt SAA's are only available in 45 and 357?



    Makes sense.  Those are by far the two most popular calibers.  If they prove to be profitable line, CZ might possibly expand on that.

    G'day all, what method do you use to separate your media from your shells?


    I use a wet tumbler and gold pans.  The tumbler comes with a "strainer" that lets the pins and dirty water out while keeping the cases in.  The pins stay out of the waste water via a wide screen gold pan on top of a fine mesh gold pan.

    After that, I pour the cases (along with any remaining pins) into the gold pans on top of an 8 gal. bucket. 

    During the rinse, any remaining pins fall into the lower pan.  Cases are then seperate from the pins.  Cases are rinsed.  Ready to dry.

    Just seemed strange to make age groups for everyone but those. Everyone has the oppurtunity to compete against people in their age groups except those, who have to shoot Cowboy/Cowgirl and compete against everyone.


    Just caught my eye is all. Being well into my late 50's doesn't really matter to me. 


    Don't forget that most of the age groups have an open top end.  Meaning, if you are a Cattle Baron and you want to shoot with those young whipper-snapper 49ers, you certainly can.

  15. A judge in New York dismissed the case against the two New York City jailers who were "asleep, failed to make rounds, and played on the computer", while Epstein supposedly killed himself.   Both the cameras focused on his cell were apparently asleep at the same time also.  


    I wonder what "they" had on the prosecutor and the judge.   Seems like when a "little black book" of rich, entitled, pedophiles wants this all to go away.  It will.

    Wonder how long it's going to be, before Ghislaine passes due to "natural causes".
