  1. 17 days, or 2 matches, whichever you prefer, until Ambush!

    Good ole' Rocky Top!!!!!! It could be our year. Our injured reserve list includes Widder and Randy Saint Eagle, but we have some other good shooters to carry some of the weight.

    I think TN is going to get edged out by Georgia again.  We'll see.  The rubber is about to hit the road!

    That's why you called and asked me about cipherin'. I knew it wasn't to pay me back that money I didn't let you borrow.:ph34r:

    I'm glad you don't want me to pay back the money you didn't let me borrow because I wasn't planning on not paying you back anyhow.

    Cap'n -

    EDIT - this link should take you to all the vids I took from both 17 and 18.


    Best I can to to answer your questions is to share the vid of me shooting Land Run in 2017.  You might want to speed up the playback using the gear icon on the bottom right of the screen.  I ain't never been fast, and that year I was on bad knees and using a cane.


    Thanks for posting that. Those look like fun stages. No confusing sweeps. There’s clearly an emphasis on accuracy, particularly rifle.

    Don't be trying to sabotage our Tennessee shooters CBB. We want TN. Williams lean, mean and hungry for a prize!


    If you want to help your fellow Georgia shooters out, Purly is looking a little tense. He really needs a deep tissue massage.


    Hey, you have to take every advantage you can. By the way did I mention I just happen to have a bottle of whatever your favorite liquor is, I’ll bring it, but unfortunately the expiration date is 10/9/2020 so you won’t have much time.

    Yes, it would be a bugger, but if you're going to talk Small Block, then the place to start is 1955 with the 265. This was chevy's second V8 engine... the first was in 1917. IMO, there isn't any engine out there that sounds as good as Chevy Small Block with a decent exhaust system. I'm not a pro or expert, just another old man that grew up in the 50s.



    My exhaust has ‘stealth’ and ‘track’ modes. Needless to say it stays in track mode. The engine is an LT1 6.2 liter cranking 455/455.

  6. In my dream world, Hellfire, CaC and Land Run would be held in that order in 2022, one per week in that sequence.

    Most people in the southeast could get to Quitman LA in a day, shoot Hellfire and head to TX, shoot CaC the following weekend, then head to Land Run. Those are all easy drives. You could shoot all of those and get home in 18 days or so if you scheduled it right.

  7. Lots of positive reviews, but very little hard data.  Well run is something most shooters can agree on in terms of what that means. Fun match, good match, great match, those are very subjective statements.


    Are targets big and close, or small and far, or somewhere in between?


    Do all stages follow generally the same sizes and distances, or are some big and close while others are small and far?


    Lots of movement? Very little movement? A mix? Downrange, or lateral, or both?


    Are the stages written for speed runs (double tap Nevada for example) or firing pattern of a small block Chevy? Or a mix?


    Lots of props and off the clock stuff, or not?

    What does the speedometer go to?

    The speedometer on my mom's 4 cylinder 2010 Hyundai Sonata goes to 160.  Why??? :blink:  

    My speedo goes to 200, sadly the car will only do 181.


    But to the topic at hand, I suspect my Camaro will be parked in Edmond for a few days in 2022. This change is a good one for me.

    If your route takes you through Nashville, pick me up and we'll take turns driving/split gas.  This increases the odds of me attending WR a hundredfold.

    LOL, you might find the back seat of my Camaro a tad cramped (Sharyn would be with me) and some folks object to driving 90 mph.  I never have understood why, it's only half the car's rated speed.

    I also got this stage painted. Wasn't too bad, it's only one target set a bit close. I put it in just in case Widder shows up. This is it from the furthest shooting position...

    Cap'n BB will probably just shoot this one 12 times. I'll let y'all know when the scores come out:ph34r::D20200930_182004.thumb.jpg.f7f04da3e95d29cc02a51471bc958916.jpg

    I didn't see a stage that called for 12.  Trying to get me a P are you?  If that's stage 8, and the closest target I'm thinking it will get 6.

    I hope these moves will only bring in more shooters that couldn't or didn't want to travel as far west as NM or Phx. I did get out to WR in '17, but had to fly. Not that much of a deal but it may be for some folks. OKC does seem like more of a central location though.

    Great minds think alike.  I was just calculating the travel to Edmond.  I think I could probably make it in 11 hours, long day, but just one day.  I've always thought if I went to Winter Range, or EOT, flying would be the best option.  Now driving to one is a viable option.

  12. I think we get a little of both type matches depending upon where you shoot.  Accuracy can matter more at some matches and the ability to 'run the gun' matters more at other matches.  Some matches reward both skill sets.

    Sunday Sharyn and I went to a match that had a stage with 5 standard pistol targets at about 5-6 yards with a ~3 inch by 3 inch 'bonus' target at the same distance.  It also had 5 standard rifle targets at about 12-13 yards, with a ~3 inch by 3 inch 'bonus' target at the same distance.  Five rounds on the standard target, then dump five on the bonus target for a 1 second bonus for each hit.  To be successful you needed to be able to run the first five at high speed, then back off a bit for the 5 round dump. 


    IIRC the stage winner shot that in 17.54, with 8 bonuses taking it down to 9.74 total time.

    Don't forget Capn' BB and the Krazy one is coming. That should help me too. Less'n someone was to fill me up on nanner puddin' so I can't move too fast. 

    Ahem. Let me draw your attention to the name at number 2 with 94.5 seconds and number 6 with 106.99.
