  1. Man, I wish I could be there, but I’ll be back next year. To anyone who hasn’t shot the plainsman match at BT, do it! Those boys know how to have a good time.
  2. Congratulations to Coyote Carson and Camp Hag on their overall wins at the Western Regional.
  3. Does this rule change apply only to ROAs, or to all cap and ball revolvers? If an ROA so modified is no longer considered a percussion revolver, what then is it, and where is it allowed to be used? Will this verbiage be removed from the SHB? “- All center-fire or rim-fire ammunition must be designed to package the bullet, gunpowder, and primer into a single metallic case precisely made to fit the firing chamber of the firearm. The primer must be of the type that uses only a small charge of impact sensitive chemical that may be located at the center of the case head or at its rim.”
  4. What ended up being the cause of the problem on the Stoeger?
  5. I prefer the Forster collet puller on the bullet profiles that it works on. Much faster and easier on the body than the inertia pullers are.
  6. With the stock off, open the action all the way and observe both hammers. If the sear doesn’t set, reach in with a prying tool and manual cock the offending hammer a bit more, if that causes it to set, you have most likely a wear issue with either the cocking lever, or the metal in the forend that it acts against. If that doesn’t make the sear set, the gun will need further disassembly to find the reason. If that’s the case, STOP SHOOTING IT until it is repaired. I’ve seen a piece of shot smashed into a hammer not h that caused a similar issue but also sometimes would fire when the action was closed (not good).
  7. Not all Turkish guns are equal. I’ve seen Tri-Stars that are junk to put it politely, and Weatherbys that are quite nice quality. There are hundreds or more manufacturers in that country, don’t judge them all by the work turned out by a few.
  8. LOL. Do you hold gunfighters to this instructions as well?
  9. Nope. Not in a match anyways. The only time I’ll consider doing that is in a side match when going back and forth with a very close competitor and they do it first. It may be a teeny tiny bit faster, but a little too gamey and risky for me. Seen way too many times where the pistol hits the table just right and spins earning a SDQ. Time spent practicing laying it in a table would be much better spent learning to re-holstering more efficiently.
  10. Most chokes in SASS are somewhere between cylinder and modified. Try some different ones and see what works best for you. Oh, and do not fire the gun with no choke tube installed.
  11. I hate non knockdown SG targets. You may as well just have everyone burn 4 into the back berm. All they do is cause peoples panties to get in a wad.
  12. LOL, so if the spotters can’t keep up, assess a miss? Wow. It’s perfectly legal. If the Md didn’t want close splits on that target they should have written it differently or used knockdowns. Next shooter….
  13. I bet the ‘97/‘87 guys loved that stage….
