  1. Trying to help  a new shooter get guns.    He has a ss 5 1/2 old army fixed sights he's going to sell to pay for cartridge  guns.  What's a fair price for these I know nothing about them.  GB. Has them  from 900 to over 2k. Is there anything special that would drive the price that high?

    This happened at the Colorado State match last weekend. Everyone in the peanut gallery including the TO told the shooter to move. And, he earned a SDQ.

    Not my posse. People need to learn when to stay quiet. Another situation where "no coaching" is better.

     

    It's not on the peanut gallery or the TO.  if the shooter chooses to move with  cocked gun it's on them.  And it's not improper coaching.    Why do people keep trying to put blame where it doesnt belong?

    Let us say that that the shooter pulls and cocked their pistol at position A. However, they were supposed to be shot at Position B.

     

    If the TO indicated that the pistols were to be shot at position B, that is technically proper instruction, but having the shooter move to position B once the pistol is cocked is technically not correct instruction.

     

    However, if the shooter moves with a cocked pistol to position B, they earn a SDQ. There will be no reshoot. The shooter cannot argue that they received improper coaching causing which impeded them causing them to move with the cocked pistol and should receive a reshoot.

    Yep seen it happen twice at regionals.  Sucks but right call

  5. 1. Taylor's 32-20   case hardened.  4 3/4" shot less than a box.   $425 obo

     

    2. Winchester 1886. In 45-70.  Bull target barrel lymann peep sight.  Some dings and scratches it's a shooter not a collector.   $1100 obo

     

    3. Long barreled 97.  12 ga D model takedown non matching.  No bluing left.  Functions right and smooth.  $350

     

    4.  Uberti 73 in 44-40  18" barrel shortened stock with cover.  Leather wrap 3rd gen short stroke.   New firing pin. Bought it used so I don't know the round count.   Shoots well.   $750

     

    5.  Old model  vaquero.   .45 colt 4.62"  case hardened first year gun.   Some light holster wear.   Replaced hammer spring and deburred internals.    Fast action   $800

      If they don't sell at the shoot then they are price plus shipping if anyone is interested. 

     

    Edit to add only trades interested in are a short 30-30 carbine, ruger .357s  or single six 32. Bisley or birdshead.

  6. Depends on what mood im in.  Either way he earned the no interpersonal conflict.    It is something that is not given out enough.     It's clear cut in the rule book.  There minute he gets in your face his  match is done. 

     Personally Id that finger touched me he also would earn a new bend to his finger. 

     

      To many people put up with bs because they don't want to be that guy.      On our posse at eot this year a kid had an ad.  Took part of the table off.  Should have been a mdq.  He was given just a miss.  His dad blew up and threw a fit that lasted for 2 stages about kids only have to engage. Not hit.   Per the rule book both should have been gone.  Yet nobody called them on it.

    He hasn’t had that ‘light bulb’ moment yet. 
     

    He can run 16s, 17s, and 18s, on easier stages, but his shotgun is probably 5+ seconds for 4 shots. He also isn’t consistent yet, maybe because he’s trying to hard to beat me.

     

    When he works out his shotgun and gets consistent he’ll beat me.

    I know the feeling,   both my kids started shooting this year.    My son went from 90 seconds to high 30s. My 8 year old daughter from 140 to low 80s in 5 matches.... I give it 2 seasons and I'm going to be the slowest in the family.

    Capt BB,

    If his SG is a SxS or 97, not only will the class help him, but there are MANY good SG shooters

    at the state that he can hopefully pick up a few pointers that can help him.

     

    ..........Widder

     

    Don't be corrupting the innocent with that heathen 97 crap..  lol

     

     Sxs or single shot all the way!!!

     

     

    By the way, since little evil decided to shoot a 97 I've been playing with them a bit more.   Even won a few things with them.

  10. Lower recoil affecting speed has a hard line.  Once you drop below it your actually slower.  

     

      Ive shot nmv, full size vaqueros in 357 and .45 and recently I picked up some .32 single sixes for my daughter.    The vaqueros I can run within .10 of each other. Those new single sixes with stock springs and factory ammo are right there as well..  I believe when I have the springs swapped and find a load they will be much faster shooting gf.

      Shooting supported I shoot the fastest with light loaded full size .45s.  

      It's all about feel for what your shooting.
