    You'd sell a .45 Vaquero??

    While they are my favorite and some of the few guns I have left, i just dont shoot them enough.  I have a case hardened in every barrel length from 3 to 7 1/2 and a stainless 7 1/2.    Best part is none are new models

  2. Since eot will be close enough to me that I might actually make it, a decision has to be made.

      Do I sell the last of my .45 vaqueros to afford to go, or not?

     

      What says the combined intelligence?

    I think mindy still has a video where I did a glory run in practice that was sub 1  with her marlin

     

     Kind words sir. Thank you

  4. Sell them for what it would cost you to replace.   If you can't buy new ones for less than 200 that's a fair value.  If you can replace them for 40 a k then that's what you do.   Right now I won't sell any of mine for less than 100 a 1000. my supplier said I won't be able to get another pallet anytime soon, so what I have may need to last me years.

     Boulder canyon bob has been using a shoulder rig as long as I can remember.   

     Ive shot using two shoulder holsters several times.  As long as you don't sweep anyone they are perfectly legal.    You may want to brush up on the rules

     

     

    Outlaw what is your chest size i may have a spare double rig that i use in ahlmans melodrama that may fit you.  If i remember right your a little bit bigger through the chest

    So sorry, didn't mean to step on toes. I don't really care! I was hoping to save someone from buying something he couldn't use in a match. By all means spend away!

    There is such a thing as an overall winner.  Many believe that shooting .22s instead of centerfire gives the shooter an advantage and therefore .22 shooters shouldn't be eligible for the overall. 

    So if a buckaroo was good enough to win overall you won't honor it if they are shooting a .22?

  8. 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

  9. 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.

    So the SD Game and Fish along with a very generous individual is in the process of buying 400 acres to set up a first class shooting complex. I was contacted to see what Cowboy Action Shooting needs would be. I'm sure others have set ranges from scratch. I'd really appreciate some info.

      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

  11. 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 

  12. 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

  13. 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

    Folks that have watched me shoot will be flabbergasted that I, of all people, would say... :if you're waiting to see if a plate falls, you're WASTING TIME!  And if the MD sez to "knock 'em down in order", fast shooters will be voting with their feet!  

    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 shooters don't like them??    top shooters generally run a star in under 2 seconds they are really easy once you know how to shoot them. 

     

       I am not a top shooter,  but I would put myself better than most on my good days.   Generally in that 13 to 17 sec a stage time for non stand and deliver matches when I'm actually interested in winning.  Falling in order is not a big deal.  You know when you pull the trigger if you hit or not. if you know you hit it low and you can reengage hit it again. If you can't reengage there is no point waiting around just move on

  15. 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
