  1. While I still have been able to keep a steady supply coming in, I will not use up what I can't replace. We will still attend matches , and mindy and the kids might shoot. With the new shooting sport we are starting I'll get plenty of shooting in anyway
  2. I loved mine, was one of the last to go this summer. I would rather shoot it that some of the ultra light .357 snubnose revolvers ive shot. There is actually a video floating around of me shooting gf with it and a .460 factory loads I lucked into mine. The original owner bought it to carry for bear on his Alaskan moose hunt. Brought it back after the trip with only 1 round fired out of the box. He sold it to me for $500, on the condition I never tell his wife the real cause of the new scar on his forehead.
  3. The local gun store as well as myself were informed our orders will be in next week that's 180k federal sp lp and some 209s
  4. I had about 80, then My mother spent the summer in the icu. Now i have the essentials. Sometimes it's a kick in the nuts to walk past empty cabinets and safes. Moms home so it's worth it. Ammo I have some.... and components to load more.
  5. Bob pm me when you have time and we can go over some things. Before the owner died I was setting one up in mn
  6. Nkj is dead on. Every 97 and 73 we have has been shortened. Even mine. Better balance and faster moment
  7. I am not, but my brother in law is the pres of the club. I dont even know how many times he's scoped himself . multiple times a year for many years...
  8. Pee wee when the 25-20 came out it was labeled and advertised as the ideal deer rifle. It works very well for one as long as you don't shoot the deer in the butt and expect it to die. 25 20 and 50 70 are the only 2 bp rounds I load. Subs will give you more smoke, just remember smoke is subjective. It all depends on weather conditions. Ive shot matches with trail boss and had more smoke than bp shooters that were deemed acceptable
  9. I got in 10000 federal small pistol in last week. $25.34 a 1000. My guy at federal said there shouldn't be an issue getting my spring pallet of primers for around $27 a 1000 as long as I get a full pallet. Ive been doing a LOT of reloading this fall. First time ive ever had most my brass loaded but you just don't know when you'll be able to get a steady supply. I should be good for a while
  10. II know of 4 people that shot it all last summer in pistols. While it wasn't me , they were my pistols and I reloaded the ammo. Sorry on this one your wrong. If it wasn't for sass shooters using the old guns and replicas you wouldn't have half the choices in ammo and components. Just look back at when star line and other started offering the brass and components again
  11. I would be careful with that assumption. Generally its less talented shooters who assume top shooters want everything easy. A correctly calibrated target slows nobody down. Even if you have to shoot it in order. Too easy targets or scenarios get really boring, really fast. There is a better chance I wouldn't go to a match that has brain dead up close stages compared to one that might actually make me think. I have to shake my head every time I see a mediocre shooter whining how a top shooter wouldn't like something. Take Texas stars. How many times have you heard top sho
  12. Love. Personally I think every match should have reactive targets. A plate rack, popper, texas star or something fun. None are hard at the distance we shoot. After as many beginner shoots as I've done I have come to realize nothing sets the hook faster. Watch the face of the new shooter as they shoot a brain dead up close huge target array, then watch the same shooter on one where something moves or drops or bounces. It's not even close. Now should you do one on every stage, no, variety is key
  13. The key part is if your off hand is in contact with the gun or support hand. If you can plant a pinkie or something your good to go
  14. Simple question. Has anyone every seen a mag tube dented at a match to the point where there shooter could not continue?
  15. Grips are probably the most important but overlooked part of shooting revolvers well. . Im fairly proficient at gf and it's what I will pretty much always shoot. Try all the guns you can get your hands on. Take two identical guns, use different grips on them and they will feel totally different. My personal opinion is while you can shoot any stock grip properly, you'll never be as fast as if you have custom grips built. They aren't expensive, and there are a lot of competent makers. Or you can do it yourself. Get oversized blanks and slowly remove material
  16. So does an elderly/infirm or new shooter who shoots over 100 second stages. Last time I checked there are no rules that say you have to shoot the stage fast. My father, on the the few matches he shoots, walks from position to position. He has no desire to shoot fast. He is there to enjoy the day. He pays the same as everyone else and deserves the same consideration.
  17. There are several reason why top guns shoot them. At the top level you have enough time in your swing to reset. I have ran the splits on some of the top shots in this sport. Duece, carty, matt, lefty, they don't win because of the trigger splits they win because of the practice they do. Their reloads and lack of wasted time and effort. But pure fact is you can't get a single trigger to sound as one shot. Two triggers you can
  18. I have no use for a 308 never owned one and never will. My recommendation is a .243
  19. I was singing in Christmas pageants from the time I was little to after high school, with all the modern songs I learned over the years I still prefer the classics. But white Christmas is still my favorite. Bing just did it right, now favorite to sing is a little different.
  20. Actually you are incorrect everything being equal a double trigger is faster. Its been tested and timed many times. I really wish people would stop spreading that lie
  21. As some of you know my mother had some very serious medical issues this year. From being poisoned by her doc to getting purposely exposed and contracting covid in the hospital. While my dad had great insurance, $12k + a day for 5 months adds up quick and it looks like the lawyers aren't going to be cheap either. So to help out out I sold most of my guns. As each one went out the door I would reevaluate what I had left. At first it was easy. Guns we didn't shoot, or were collectible. Then went the ones that were duplicates. Next was the ones that were single
  22. Ive got the three colt sizes, and an uberti my father has a lightning bolt, As for the pistols I sold my 2 lightning's and thunderer Recently.
  23. I've been playing with outlaw a lot more lately... all guns from the hip. I even shot speed rifle that way at regionals a few runs. Shouldered was about 2 seconds fasted
  24. Yep. I have one with a drop in cartridge cylinder. Very fun plinking gun
