  1. Everyone seems to agree situation 1 is a miss. I appreciate the responses. In situation 2 it would be best if the TO did not say "load one" if the jacked out round came before the 10th shot and shooter shot everything else correctly prior to the 10th shot since they would just have a miss rather than a procedural. Is this correct?

    Why reload?

    Directions: With the rifle-Shoot 1-3-1 and then repeat from the same direction. Example 1 Shooter shoots 1-3-1 correctly on the correct targets, then repeats the same sequence correctly hitting the first target with one shoot, hits the second target with two shots and jacks out the third round, then hits the third target with the last shot. WTC? Example 2 Same directions. Shooter shoots the 1-3-1 correctly on the correct targets, then repeats the same sequence hitting the first target correctly, then hits the second target with 2 rounds correctly but jacks out the third round, then hits the last target. Shooter then reloads and hits the second target or the third target. WTC?
  3. PS. I never keep practice ammo in our carts during big matches!!!!!!!
  4. Good to hear from you CG. Hope everyone is doing well. We start with new Starline brass and reload it 5 times; two in the rifle and three in the pistol. It then goes in a bucket for monthly matches until it starts to split. All other brass goes in a practice bucket. We have not experienced primers backing out in big matches, accept one where one of the kids grabbed a practice box for a top ten shoot and a pistol locked. It does happen occasionally in practice. We have used Clays powder for almost eight of the nine years we have been shooting, cold or hot temperatures. I am sure other shooters have experienced success with other brands of brass and powder. This is just our method. See you at Winter Range.
  5. Is it Sasskicker or SASS Kicker. She has been away so long I had forgot. Until she kicked my SASS last month.
  6. Incredible work Colt. That is an amazing rig. Congratulations on your holster business. I am seeing them around and they have all the bells and whistles and are extremely thought out. I had no idea you were back in business. SASS Kicker is still shooting one of your rigs from 9 years ago. Fantastic......

    We will know how to call it in the future. Wish you were all there when it happened. We would still be there. LOL Thanks everyone and good night!!!
  8. Brian Enos has a great forum where topics like this is discussed. Excellent.Forums - Brian Enos's Forums... Maku mozo!.html You will really enjoy it.

    This is what I an getting out of this: when the shooter shot and missed the 5th round he had a miss, then shot the 6th round and had a hit, then shot the 7th round at the plate rack causing a procedural due to the engagement of the wrong target. He then alternated the three targets and the procedural did not allow him to miss the 10th target. (Procedural cannot cause a miss due to double jeopardy). Then made up the miss with the shotgun. Wouldn't that be a procedural with no misses?

    It might be that the plate rack targets are not always set the same as what it takes to knock them down. This will get us another two pages. LOL I have shot many matches where the the plate rack or knockdown misses shot with a rifle or pistol can be made up with the shotgun on a separate target. Some even make you carry the shotgun with you so you can make up misses with your pistol or rifle if you do not knock them down at the next position. I have learned to enjoy matches with these options. Again, the stage was written so everyone but one shooter shot it correctly. There were no questions I can remember after the stage was read from our squad. The discussion with the posse after the stage was: can a procedural cause a miss and was it an advantage to shoot the shotgun for the missed target as directed by the TO. There was as many opinions, well not as many as the responses on this post, so we gave the benefit of the doubt to the shooter.

    This was an excellent stage that everyone enjoyed and understood. One shooter earned a P. Every time someone gets a P does not make a bad stage, bad TO or bad shooter. Trust me, I have had enough P's, just not this time. Simply shoot the 6 plates on the plate rack and alternate on the two stationary targets for four targets. . Doesn't get much easier. It even gave the opportunity to make up a plate left standing by using your shotgun on the bell after the ten shots. My purpose of posting was to make sure I knew the correct penalties. As noted by 3 pages of discussion, the penalty to be assessed was confusing to some of us. I appreciate everyone 's input and your keeping up with our madness Pale Wolfe. Your a patient man!!! Thanks

    Is the call a procedural with no miss on the original post? No other instructions were given and all the other shooters on the posse shot it correctly. Appreciate King Snake for posting the stage.
  13. This happens to me often. I went of the Brian Enos website and Brian responded with two ways that have helped me. If it is an unwanted thought, say to yourself, "what am I going to think of next". Took me a little while to get use to this but it helps me. The second is a visualization technique. Picture a Roman Numeral I over a Roman Numeral I, then a I over a II, a I over a III and so on... until thoughts go away and you are relaxed. You can also use numbers. Quickly Downunder has a great test you can do before you shoot to see if you are calm. By the way he likes to stripper fish on big bodies of water. You can talk to him about it. If your still not ready, ask to go to the unloading table and ask for permission to unload. Start your process over ( Zen Golf). Good luck. Some of us have busier minds than others .

    Directions: from position 1, with the rifle engage the 6 cowboys on the (plate) rack, then alternate on the two buffalo's for 4 rounds (buffalo are stationary targets). Shooter hits the first four plates, misses the fifth, hits the fifth and sixth then alternates for 3 rounds. Misses on the plate rack can be made up on a shotgun target which the shooter does. Everything else is shot correctly. WTC
  15. Shoot Boogie Ruger's and do not worry which side the revolvers go in. Any differences are taken care of by the buzzer.
