    There is of course merit to what you say. My comment was just a thought. For the first 20 yrs or so we only shot on Sunday and it worked out just fine, in fact I liked it much better. We have so many matches available around our area that a person can shoot every day on every weekend if they want to do so. But the fact is that ALL of these events are suffering from a lack of shooters. If the number of options were cut down I believe that it would help all of us. There are so many options that the turnout of most matches isn't worth the drive for me.  When we brought Saturday into our lineup it did indeed provide more options for the shooters but the numbers on Saturday have always been low as compared to Sunday. IMO if Saturday matches were not available the Sunday turnout would improve, and provide a better CAS experience. I would rather see one good day than two half-assed days. JMO. 

    I can't argue with that!

  2. If folks are running low, couldn’t they just skip either a Saturday or Sunday match? If they’re not doing that, should the club force them to by going to once a week?

    The only reduction in shooting from going from two a week to one a week will either be people who wanted to shoot both days and now can’t, or people who can’t shoot at all because the day they needed is no longer offered. 

    How is either of those outcomes a good thing?

  3. I think the biggest problem you will have with both of these guns is the lug between the barrels.  That's going to make loading quickly pretty challenging.  As CC said, find a Stoeger, or a Baikal.  Both of those are available on Gunbroker though Baikals are harder to find.

    Nobody should go thirsty Thursday or Friday night under the pavilion. I just loaded 57 Bottles of Liquor, 112 Beers, and approximately 14 gallons of mixers and soda. We are about ready to kick the doors open on the saloon.

    So you have the Georgia shooters covered, what about everybody else?


    Ammo is loaded and checked, suitcase is semi-loaded, guns need to be cleaned a bit, almost ready.


    2 days......

    Now hang on just a doggone minute, there's more "Northerners", a.k.a. d@** Yankees, in and around Atlanta, GA than there is in the whole state of Tennessee; let's not start hurling insults...

    One of the reasons I avoid Atlanta as much as possible.  I don't know if I would go as far as saying 'Yankees', northerners is bad enough.

  6. South Eastern Regional, 21 49ers including Stan, Delta Glen and Christian Mortician.  Hmmm, should I drop down to Wrangler or Cowboy where there are fewer competitors and I have a better chance of winning or try to run with the big dogs?


    I think I'll stick with 49er and I think these boys should play out their schedule.

  7. We had some people sneaking in after hours at one of our local ranges.  Shooting CAS targets, making a mess.  The range installed cameras.  It wasn't to long before we got a nice video of local high schoolers (one the son of a member) breaking into the range, shooting our targets, drinking booze, shooting the bottles, sweeping each other with loaded guns.  It's amazing how stupid some boys can be in their teens, and in some cases into adulthood.

    Local Sheriff prolly brings em back.


    No, that was me when I was in high school.  I would run away, stay away for a few weeks.  Mom would raise Cain.  Dad would go to the local PD and tell them to find me and bring me home.  They would check the beach, find me and tell me I had to be a good boy and go home.  A few months later the cycle would repeat.

    For your back seat drivers?  :D:D:D

    LOL!  Usually the people in the back seat are to busy catching their breath from screaming to do a whole lot of back seat driving.

    Reminds me of the old joke.  I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like grandpa......not screaming in fear like his passengers.


    Seriously.  The back seats aren't that bad.  I take my three youngest to school in this car 5 days a week.

    Did your car come from the factory in its present condition or has it been modified?


    Stock.  455 horsepower, 455 torque, 0-60 in 3.9, 1/4 mile in 12.5.   What really makes the car stand out from Camaro's of the past is the handling.  It was built for the track.  Basically it has the Corvette engine, suspension, and transmission, with back seats.
