  1. In 1986 I was working at Steel Heddle Manufacturing Company in Greenville SC. Every morning on the way in to work, I would stop & buy a newspaper to read at lunch. While reading the sports page, I saw an ad for a Bersa 383DA pistol (Walther PPK copy in 380) for $79 at a gun store in the old part of Greenville. After I got off work, I drove over there & bought one (still have it, it's a nice little gun). The reason I remember all these details, the guy gave me $10 too much change. The next afternoon I went back over & gave the extra $10 back. The guy was stunned. $10 was big money in those days! Holler
  2. Kay Sadeeya & I both shoot JM single trigger Baikals. She would have occasional problems with doubling & I couldn't for the life of me figure out why. My gun never doubled. It was always totally random for her. She said that she could tell when it was going to happen because the trigger pull was suddenly REALLY heavy. As an experiment, we traded shotguns for a couple of matches. When she used my gun & it doubled, I knew that it had to be something she was doing differently from me. I of course did not tell her that, for the obvious reasons. One night we were doing dry fire practice & my finger hit the trigger while the gun was open. I heard a faint click, then when I closed the gun & pulled the triggers, there was a single loud CLICK. AH HAH! That was why her guns would double but it never happened to me, and why it was so damn random - she didn't know she was hitting the trigger while opening the gun. All 3 of our single trigger Baikals act the same way. We now make sure to keep our trigger fingers off the trigger when shucking shells. Holler
  3. FWIW Vitavouri N320 looks remarkably like grains of sand after it is burned. One of our shooters uses it & his guns look like they are spitting sand with every shot. I always thought it was unburned powder until I saw N320 in the can. Holler
  4. FWIW There are 4 clubs currently shooting in your area. Panhandle Cattle Company shoots in Chipley on the 4th Saturday, Panhandle Cowboys shoot in Cantonment (north of Pensacola) on the 2nd Sunday, Red Hills Rangers shoot on the 3rd Saturday in Midway (west of Tallahassee) & Big Bend Bushwhackers shoot on the 3rd Saturday in Woodville (south of Tallahassee). PM me your e-mail address & I can have you added to all of their mailing lists. Holler
  5. Kay Sadeeya & I will be there! Holler
  6. I choose a western movie & pull all the start lines from there. IMDB.com is a big help, there is a quotes page for each movie. Holler

  9. Kay Sadeeya & I went to EoT for the first time last year, best trip of our lives! We enjoyed every minute. Can't wait to go back in 2018. Holler
  10. Abe E.S. Corpus gets full credit. I had bought a Taurus Judge revolver & mentioned to him that it would be nice to have a rifle in 45 Colt to match up with it. He said "ever thought about a lever action rifle?" & it was downhill from there. Holler
  11. I am on my 2nd set of prescription safety glasses from WalMart. Full wraparound protection & very comfortable. Very reasonably priced if you get them in single vision, something like $75. I got them for distance only, which I prefer for shooting, but I did put a stick-on bifocal on the left lens, which covers close vision for scoring. The stick-on bifocal lenses came from Amazon for $15. Like Boggus said, safety eyewear is more about protection than being period correct. After seeing someone take a bit of lead to the eye while wearing very small lenses without side shields, I decided to go for safety rather than appearance. Holler
