  1. The irony is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
  2. Yep! But from threat recognition to CNS shot in less than 2.5 seconds against someone who already has a bead on him? Then a less than 2 second reload? Big Uns!
  3. This guy is something https://youtu.be/Pd_3Q1PCsDw
  4. I think you're right. I remember reading something about that a while back. I think it had to do with the blanks not working well in 1911s.
  5. I'm not trying to be argumentative, but since the 38 special cartridge wasn't developed until 1898 it could be easily argued that a weapon of that caliber would have been much more likely to be used in something like the Wild Bunch scenario than in the vast majority of westerns films.
  6. Interesting. I like the idea of keeping the power factor requirement but removing the caliber restriction. It would be relatively easy to load heavier loads for WBAS matches.
  7. I like this approach. Stick with SASS rules for SASS shooters (no 1911) but offer a WB match to run concurrently. If we had more interest in WB locally I would consider adding that as an option at Doc Holliday's. Unfortunately WB is currently not much in demand and is only sporadically offered at one of the local clubs. I think the requirement that the rifle be large caliber discourages many prospective WB shooters. Most local shooters use .38 special. By adding the rifle requirement prospective WB members often have to buy at least two new guns and often three. Add in the need for reloading equipment and components and you have a substantial increase in the time and money needed to join the game. In my case I already have a 97 and a 1911. I have reloading dies for 38 sp and 45 ACP, plus all the components. If 38 sp were legal all I would need to buy is the leather. As it currently stands I would have to buy a new rifle, new reloading dies, a different caliber of bullet and new brass. That's a $2000 dollar investment rather than a couple of hundred, not to mention keeping three different calibers sorted and loaded. I wonder what the rational behind the WB rifle requirement is....?
  8. What is this cleaning you speak of? I started out treating my guns the way my military training dictated: obsessive cleaning. Now I'm with Creeker, a minimalist.
  9. Saban has brass ones. He just fired Kiffin and replaced him with Sark, a week before the National Championship game. I think that SI interview really ticked him off. I guess Kiffin still hasn't grown up.
  10. Thanks Jack! We're glad you joined Doc's!!
  11. Mean Matt McCord passed away a couple of years ago.
  12. I read about SASS in Guns and Ammo. Easy Rider and Buck D. Law helped me get started. Despite that I never took up Gunfighter.
  13. We have a wonderful young lady named Rebecca who provides a homemade lunch for the modest fee of $6.
  14. 18 inch half round half octagon straight stock for me.
  15. Hey Katelynn! Thanks for the kind words! If it wasn't for you and all the other people who befriended me and helped me through my cowboy growing pains I would probably have given up after a certain match, you know the one. See you at the next DHI match!

  16. Thanks for the info. I know exactly what you mean about the macho thing. I like to buy my ammo in large amounts and I don't want to end up with stuff that will jam up the '73 I'm about to get. Preciate the help!

  17. Great guy, gave me a tip on a shotgun belt that saved me a lot of money!
