  1. That brings up the elephant hiding in the closet. Single action shooting.. Where we use guns designed pre 1900 or modern replicas. Because im sure you saw a lot of shotguns honed, funneled with a stay open notch. Or short stroked, wide lowered hammered colts. Short stoked 73s with straight triggers. Titanium parts. The leather we use. Boots. Even clothes are designed for speed. The sport has changed from what it was to, as long as it looks somewhat close the sky is the limit. 20 years ago how many of those mods would have been allowed? I had the chance to talk with judge roy bean
  2. Most of our awards and buckles are still boxed up from our move. Ill have to dig them out and take a pic. To answer your other questions. My favorite buckle is my first place gf at our regional gunsmoke last year. Fourth place finish overall. Its my favorite because of the group we shot with. Jackpine bill has pushed me to beat him since i started shooting. I finally managed to do it at a big shoot. We possed with our friends from the dakotas who are great friends. My favorite award is the spirit of the game award my family won at state last year. My wife and i both shoo
  3. My son wears one of mine. My loaner belts have them on too. My wife used to wear some until she started shooting and won her own
  4. Do you wear your awards buckles in everyday life or just for sass? Personally i only wear the first one i ever earned that was a 5th place gf at state. Although that will change now with my regional win. I'm kinda fond of that one too. As for the rest they get displayed in my gun room but never really wear them. What does everyone else do?
  5. If your fumbling bad on your reaload for a double some times it's faster to drop the rounds and go to your belt again. Take a few breaths and make sure your ready to go before you say your line. Once you pull the trigger forget the round. Either it hit or it didn't. No changing the outcome instead focus on the next shot
  6. The gun store here had two go through already. On their way to a collection Didn't even want to touch them because of the cost. Sure were pretty
  7. Hutchinson mn. Pop under 40000 45 min from the twin cities joanns in town 2 clubs under 30 minutes away. Perfect weather 8 months out of the year
  8. This year I'm shooting one match dressed in matching b western with my wife so I'll have to shoot a Marlin again. Also I'm shooting one of our specialty shoots with my slow guns. A single shot 12, long barreled .45s and .45 schofield spencer
  9. Looking to get a pair of 5 1/2 vaqueros in .357. Stainless new or large frame. what do you have? Not looking for abused guns. Used is fine Thanks
  10. Have nice fat elk backstrap in the smoke house now. Should be ready by 7.... If you're in the area stop on in and have some
  11. I picked up a second gen new in the box 7 1/2 in .45 for 1200 last year. Id see if he'd come down a bit
  12. We purchased a farm this year so that was my christmas present. my wife received some new ar 500 targets, her rifle is with carty getting slicked up, and the kids got way to many toys
  13. That's what happens to you for picking on Sweet innocent me... And for not liking that beautiful white stuff
  14. I'm toying around with the idea of rebarreling one of my rolling blocks from 45-70 to 30-30. This is just going to be a cheap plinker but i would like to get decent accuracy out of it. It's an old egyption action if that makes a difference. Looking to keep the barrel short for a handy little brush gun. Not interested in a heavy match barrel. Ive other rifles if i want to stretch out the range. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Wow now there is an skb i might actually be interested in
  16. I've been looking for a s&w for a while. But only an older one. I help out at the local toy store and have seen the junk they put out now. By actual numbers 3 out of every 5 pro shop revolvers they get in go back for quality control. Its to the point that as of the new year they won't be carrying new s&w revolvers anymore. Now they're older stuff i love to drool over. A joy to shoot
  17. Picked up a cute little 410 sxs for my kids. Other than that kinda going the other way. Sold off most my irons. The best gun related thing for me was i was able to give my brother and his boys their first center fire rifles.
  18. I've tried skbs brownings bikals and steogers. I shoot steogers because the chambers are closer and thinner. The skb and brownings are high quality and you have less of a chance of getting a lemon. The biakal is tougher but definitely needs work. All of them have guns you can run stock. All have guns that must be worked on. The lower end guns just have a higher chance of getting a lemon. The average shooter will never reach the potential these guns can achieve. Shoot what feels good to you
