  1. Right now, I think the media on both sides are using him to advance their ratings.  He is still going to have to ride out the inevitable civil suits.  He is in therapy for PTSD.  He has nightmares.  He will have to live somewhere else.  And he'll always be, "that guy".


    I pray that he will find some peace.

       I see a lot of misuse of the term "benefit of the doubt goes to the shooter". It seems to me atleast this is the first go-to to explain away a call. An example:

      On a social media page there was a wtc thread about a hammer not being fully down on a revolver. The shooter finished his shooting string with the revolver and it was found the hammer was not fully down after reholstering. Many many of the first calls were a no-call. That's not really the point of this post. The point was some of the reasoning. There was a lot of "benefit of the doubt goes to the shooter". Now this wasn't just from very new shooters using the term. Atleast one was an RO instructor.

       Now there was no doubt the hammer was back. They doubted the reason why it was back. 

      Is it just me, or do yall often see the overuse/misuse of this term as well?


    "When there is no doubt, there is no benefit"  Either the hammer was down or it wasn't.  A malfunction wasn't declared...


    Then it turns out the OP got it wrong, and it should have read"...he was shooting gunfighter. He lost count dry fired his left pistol and started to cock his right pistol then stopped and put it away. It was not locked back, but it was not down."

    Yes, here in Oz its a requirement.




    Just for the sake of my own curiosity.  What does "Holster Qualification" entail?  Is it a course?  Do you have to prove to them that you still have 10 toes?  A demonstration that you can draw, fire, and put it back without maiming anyone?

    The Bullet coming out of round 7 hit 8, driving it into 9, setting Bullet deeper in case a bit. Rounds 9&10 were unaffected. 
    no damage to rifle. I suspect I was unluckily lucky! 


    Glad you and the rifle are ok!  I was timing a gentleman when the entire magazine detonated in his '73.  Nothing left but the barrel!  Magazine ballooned and split, the forearm exploded into splinters.   His very good shooting glasses saved his eyes.  He went to the ER to get metal splinters taken out of his face.

    I have a gent offering me a Winchester 24, it is well used, non-collector grade. Are these any good for CAS?


    I used one for years.  It was worked over by Jim Bowie.  He made it slick, fast, and it opens wide. 

    Like GJ said, not many gunsmiths work on them, but Cowboys & Indian Store did mine just right.

    There certainly were no celebrity unicorns at Founders Ranch, and I seriously doubt they will be attracted to Akron.  Getting them at our events is about location, location and location. 


    Cheap shot.  Akron is an office location.  Do you think any events ever happened at the offices in Yorba Linda, or in RJ Poteet's basement, before that?  End of Trail is being held in Phoenix Arizona, in a major population area.  (The 5th largest city in the US + the population of the suburbs and surrounding areas).  That's your location, location, location.

    I'd like PWB to confirm this.  That would settle the OP and then the group can go on with other scenarios.


    We may be waiting a bit on this one.  PWB may answer, "in my opinion", but it's not a ROC consensus until he can get the others to respond to him.  From Larsen's post, not all ROC members are of the same mind on this...  


    See you in Alabama!

  8. It's a 1994 Armi San Marco "1851" in .44 caliber.  A gun that never really existed.  Shoot it and have fun!  If you look close at that stylized "A" it's really an A over an M..   ASM early on had excellent quality, later years... Not so much.  Don't let that concern you.  If you can find some percussion caps, go to it!
