  1. You call that lunch? That was just the best BBQ meal that I have had in a looooooong time!
  2. If you reload, and you're willing to experiment, and you are persistent, you will be able to make a Henry run at normal speed without jamming. Probably even for a whole match. NOT FAST, but at a normal operating speed. I started with a HBB in .357, and I was a long time reloader, so I was willing to put in the time to find the right overall length (OAL). Eventually I sold mine and bought an already tuned Browning 92 for only about $100 more than I paid for the HBB. It doesn't matter whether you are into competition or just shooting for fun; a malfunctioning firearm is frustrating and takes most of the fun right out of it. Since you don't already own a HBB in an allowable caliber, why buy into frustration and a guaranteed handicap? Marlin, 92, 73? Buy whatever you can currently afford. If you buy a viable rifle now, selling it later to move up will be much easier.
  3. That's too bad. I visited the monument and battlefield while on a Texas RV trip in 2010, it was awesome. The monument museum and video were great.
  4. Brian, I bought that exact gun from the EMF vendor last month at Winter Range. I was impressed with how surprisingly smooth it was right out of the box. I got a substantial discount as a "scratch and dent" model, but I had to ask what the defect was, and couldn't even see it after the representative pointed it out! It might be worth asking EMF if they have any more imperfect ones in stock. By the way, I shot last summer with the Johnson Creek Regulators in Plymouth. They were a great group and I had a wonderful time. Give them a try if you haven't already.
  5. On the chance that you might have at some time blocked Survey Monkey, you can go to this page and opt-in. https://www.surveymonkey.com/user/email-opt-in/?ut_source=footer
  6. Check your spam folder if you haven't received it yet. That's where mine was, and I thought I was SPECIAL.
  7. If you were a Winter Range participant, a survey has been emailed to you. It bears repeating, every WR Board member reads every single survey. Some make us smile, some make us sad, and some make us go hmmmmm. But the reality is that most of the improvements in Winter Range have started as suggestions from our shooters. If for some reason you didn't get one, PM me and I'll see what I can do. We hope your travels home have been pleasant and we hope to see you next year.
  8. Phantom nailed it. Our goal is to put on a match that is safe, consistent, and most of all FUN. Your feedback is a huge part of our continuing success. Thanks.
  9. The World Championship is EOT. If anyone in the world can win the National Championship, then what's the point of a World Championship? That's the reason behind the change.
  10. This is only about 2/3 of the boardwalk that we have already made. Although we have discussed the need for more, the question is where do we stop? Every vendor wants it inside and outside their tent. And painting or coating it? We already have to recoat the floors in the permanent stages (Saloon, Fort & Coosie's) every other year because we can't find anything that holds up longer than that. I would love to find a product that would hold up to 750+ pairs of cowboy boots year after year.
  11. Special thanks goes to Sly Puppy, Jackrabbit's wife. She did extra duty between being the Vendor and Entertainment Coordinator and tending to ol' Jackrabbit when he was "feelin' poorly".
  12. I'm sorry, I had no idea that quoting a post implied any argument, disagreement, or accusations, falsely laid or otherwise.
  13. Folks, just a reminder to please, please, please fill out the email survey that will be sent to all WR competitors. Most all of the recent changes to WR have started as a result of these surveys. Every WR Board member reads every survey at a very long meeting, it matters. BTW, we set a record for precipitation in October, the range was a muddy mess in November too!
  14. Mr. Quigley works tirelessly throughout the entire Winter Range event and is definitely entitled to fair compensation for his work. He takes beautiful pictures and is a valued official Winter Range vendor.
