  1. To kind of give an update. I have had several clubs interested in hosting this. Where would most people like to see this at? Obviously I can make it happen in mn but that's a long way for most. What if it was in the Missouri/ Illinois area? Somewhere warmer over winter may be a good idea. I have had plenty of vendors offer goods and to come vend. Bullets, leather, gun parts, steel targets and gun carts. As well as some great gfs offer to do classes. From transitions, bp gf, outlaw, practice, and setting up guns best for one handed shooting. Thanks for all the feed back. I believe that this is something im going to try to make happen but it's all in the planning stages now.
  2. Kinda curious, how long do you think thousands of rounds will last? More than once ive burned through almost a thousand rounds on side match day with both of us shooting.
  3. We have debated going to wr but for our family it would use our entire shooting budget for the year. Oklahoma just may be doable
  4. I worded most of that last one poorly. I completely agree that you can learn from anyone, and I never said dont listen to those who aren't fast. Just be leery, I've seen a lot of advice on how to go faster that had nothing to do with going fast. One of the absolute best rifle to pistol transitions ive ever seen was by a gentleman who averages over 2 minutes a stage. At the same time if someone who runs 30 says something is the only way to go fast. I'd ask someone who runs low teens if they agree. As for the sub twenty second stages. If you take a shooter who can hit it on 10" targets, and give him 20". Its really easy to throttle up, and his times drop drastically. At the same time take someone who is going all out on 20"and barely making it. who do you think runs a greater risk of missing? Who is going to be more consistent, faster, over the match? The few times I actually practice speed I generally do it on 9" rounds. I'm content with running around 3 sec sweeps from holster, knowing that when the barn door targets come out I'm good for at least a half sec faster. Rifle I'm worse at so the times slow a bit but it's still consistent. 4 sec on the 9" and half a second or better on the larger. I'm good with going to a match knowing I'm in the 3 sec range for both that won't run with the big dogs but it's not far off
  5. There is good advice here and some not so good. I'd be a little leery of taking speed advice from someone who isn't really that fast. 20 second stages just doesn't cut it as fast anymore. You can learn to shoot top speed and hit on any size target. If someone needs a 20" target to get teens, well they will get their butt kicked by the good shooter that can do the same on 10"
  6. Get what you can. My own personal targets range from 3" to 3' .
  7. I don't think i can remember that ive ever shot at a match that had a dedicated Lto.. some have the shooter in front or behind check but that's it
  8. I don't shoot when it gets below 0. But I've been dog sledding when it was -60 in 96. You didn't really notice..
  9. Oh we aren't Alaska we only get nippy here. It hasn't gotten past -50 in a long time
  10. Well then Cram as much as you can into a single day.
  11. Everybody is different. Some take more time than others. Ive been shooting with both hands since day one. Not only since I started sass but since the first day I shot a handgun. Im willing to work with anyone that's interested in trying it. Ive been doing it 4 years now in my classes. Im by no means an expert but I hold my own
  12. Also 1 proper grip fit 2 roll cock or straight pull 3 holsters 4 transitions to optimize speed 5 lead changes vs cross over
  13. I need to get input to see if this crazy idea I had is worth while. A multi day gathering of gunfighters consisting of: A challenging yet fun Multi day match with multiple gf categories Side matches with speed/ skill as well as fun stages. A charity stage where all proceeds are donated, with the winner getting to choose the next years charity Classes taught by skilled gunfighters Gun/ leather/ grip/ gunsmith reps on hand. Maybe steel vendors too I know I can get leather and steel vendors there possibly a ruger and a cimarron rep Open to beginners to experts. So what's your thoughts. I know of several ranges I might be able to swing it at. Edit to add So far we have Bullet vendor 2 leather companies Steel vendor Clothes vendor 3 Match sponcers 13 jedi, 6 offering to teach Maybe this could work after all
  14. My nephews live 1300 miles away and wanted to see me shoot. So I've been doing short videos. Normally just one stage per video. Iron Senorita wanted to do a better video for them. It's not for the club or anything promotional. Those videos we have a professional do
  15. One of our new shooters is helping me upgrade my videos. We are looking for advice on how to make it better. These are taken from my lackluster performance at gunsmoke this year. Advice is appreciated.
  16. Life is too short to worry about losers like that. If someone has that low of integrity, anything I say wouldn't make a difference. I see it as a learning experience and make sure I never do business with him. Although I haven't seen him in years so it's not a big deal either way
  17. Its complicated. I put up a rifle a few years back. A cowboy gave a big sob story about getting back into sass and not having the money to pay full price. So I let him have it for way below what I was asking. Feeling good about helping a fellow shooter. Only to see him 2 days later at a match sell the same rifle for $700 more than he paid me for it. With about 30 other guns on his table and a bunch more in the trailer. A lot of us mark guns lower than we would normally would sell it for, just to help out the sport. If it bothers you that someone is just trying to flip for a profit. Dont sell to dealers.
  18. The problem with that is people would complain if they didnt have a TO that caught it. Same reason why it was changed that a TO can't stop a falling gun before it hits the ground.
  19. I have the 6.5 creed and 7-08. Both are flat shooting low recoil rounds. The 6.5 a little flatter. Ive never shot them at deer but have taken several elk with both calibers. Deer I generally use my .45 or .357 vaqueros
  20. Ive got a 4 3/4 colt clone sitting in the safe . Only one. Shot very little. If your interested I can dig it out and get you more info on it
  21. Well i had one last fall but I sold it already. Bought them together as a package deal
