  1. Much like TW I would have to break them up by category. My absolute favorite cowboy gun to shoot is my Uberti 1873 built by Harlan Wolf. My favorite non-cowboy gun to shoot is my Colt Commander with XS Big Dot sights. It feels like the gun is an extension of me and the bullets just seem to go where I want them to go. My SHTF favorite working gun if I need to shoot someone is my Mossberg 930. The only time I really needed it, it came through for me. Picking it up was like a glass of cold water after a week in the desert.
  2. I think they look funny, but I try not to laugh.
  3. So do we have to provide our own axe/hatchet/tomahawk, or will there be a spare or three available? (I am woefully unprepared with regards to bladed throwing chopper things)
  4. All the local matches have enough cover to park your carts out of the rain every stage, so the focus is on staying dry between stages and minimizing exposure when shooting or doing posse duties. Depending upon temperature I wear a light or heavy long coat and have a decent hat that sheds rain. Moving between stages I either use a trash bag, as other’s have mentioned, or I drape my coat over the cart. I always bring a towel for wiping down guns after a match, usually with CLP, but on rainy days I use WD 40. Most loading and unloading tables around here are covered, or can be, so other than the tables getting wet that’s not an issue. A bandanna helps. I usually have two.
  5. I hope your FIL gets better soon Dan! Hands on the cell phone while driving is illegal here in Georgia, so she'll get a whopping $50 fine for that part of the accident.
  6. I think he goes Gunfighter on those and uses a spork in one hand and a spoon in the other.
  7. I respectfully disagree. This point has been covered many times. We're nowhere close to being re-enactors. Our guns aren't period correct, much of our apparel isn't even close to being period correct (think B-Western). Somehow I don't think cowboys ever thought, 'I'm going to stand here out in the open and shoot a Nevada sweep on those four bad guys." We're a fantasy western shooting sport. I always get a kick out of this statement and it keeps popping back up. We're all shooting for fun, even the fast shooters. Some of us just define fun differently than you do. That is a statement I've never heard from anyone at a match in 9 years of CAS. I've heard it here on the Wire, but never at a match.
  8. Obviously short strokes do affect the operation of the gun and aren't according to the original design, BUT they're also included under the "Internal modifications not referenced here" statement. In other words, they are explicitly referenced as being OK. Your difference of opinion is not about what short strokes do with respect to original design, it's about whether they should have been approved. That ship has sailed.
  9. That’s a strange quote, Joe said that, not me.
  10. No, it wasn't. Neither were short strokes. I don't believe that a perceived disadvantage is justification for not allowing these. BUT I am concerned about how they impact our current rules and I can foresee them causing slow downs on stages.
  11. So when the OP asks for reviews only those who have something good to say should respond?
  12. Post them on the classifieds. From what I've seen the best way to get a package deal done is to offer a discount for the package, but also have per item pricing available. It can be hard to find someone who wants all of what you have.
  13. From my perspective the gamble occurred when the shooter knowingly brought a pistol that was illegal for his category to the LT and loaded it. The question then is why would he do that? To shoot it I suppose. Why would he knowingly plan on shooting an illegal revolver? The best conclusion I could reach would be because he thought a 10 second P was better than 25 seconds worth of misses. I think that's a pretty clear cut SOG. Pretty different than a duelist who cocks two pistols, or a BP shooter who gets a smokeless load mixed in with his BP ammo.
  14. Fast Eddie, cause he’s the best SKB gunsmith our there. I’m happy to say we have 3 Fast Eddie SKB’s.
