  1. Shooter's Handbook, page 13: Doesn't matter if it is a shotgun or not. And it says NOT to shoot a target on the ground. So I would logically expect a "miss" - that would NOT be counted as a miss penalty. Since that target cannot be considered a miss since a shot was fired, that leaves that target out of the discussion. Part of my job for many years was to interpret rules and later write rules. Note: It is not humanly possible to write anything as good as the 10 Commandments. But the Jews struggled because they want to count steps to avoid being accused of working on the sabbath. That shows that we can all suffer from lack of good sense. Nearly all sabbaths (but 2) were noted as no strenuous work. So even there, you are judged by your own intent, and only you can God can judge that well. Fortunately SASS rules don't go there. God really does expect us to use the rules of logic He has given us to apply all rules of life. I am a strong believer that the IRS rules are way too loose. They need to be expanded to cover ALL eventualities. (Sarcasm alert.) We expect those rules to be completed after we are all dead.
  2. When in doubt, throw it out. Also, the "marker" in Clays is a donut with a hole in it. First time I saw the donut I wondered until I researched it and then understto. I too though a little Trail Boss was mixed in. Then realized I bouth that powder befor Trail Boss was ever sold. Markers are required in canister powders (and possibly commercial.) So if the larger bottle was labeled Calys it should still be okay for the loads we use. If loading to max loads, some recommend not mixing different lots of powder. Lots are allowed to vary up to 15% density, that is why the warning. But in actually it, they vary by less than 5% and normally even less.
  3. The link to helpful hints: https://wheelergunworks.weebly.com/helpful-hints.html
  4. Several programs will work but since Excel comes with almost any Microsoft package, I use it. Any spreadsheet should work well. Word is terrible because it is much harder to get the graphics to stay where YOU want them to be. Interestingly, the graphic stays right were you put it with Excel. You can then "print" the file to a PDF file for others - either using Microsoft to PDF or PrimoPDF, a free "print driver." https://www.gonitro.com/primopdf I find that Microsoft to PDF gives better quality graphics, but is a much larger file.
  5. They are a very nice, lighter rifle made as a copy of the Winchester 92. They can be slicked up quite nicely and are not difficult to maintain. But since they are a Browning design, they are slightly more complicated than say a 1873 copy. But still workable. They are fun, but not usually quite as fast shooting as a 73 or 66 due in part because of the design with an angled elevator system. They can be somewhat finicky with cartridge length. Some want a longer cartridge so you can merely load a cartridge to match it. By some work, most will work with any regular length cartridges either 38 Special or 357 Mag. http://marauder.homestead.com/Rifles.html There are some very good youtubes about them as well. There are also some smiths that are very good with them if you need help.
  6. We are so sorry to hear this. Prayers up for you!
  7. I'm so sorry to hear this. He is greatly missed. Prayers for Pinky and the family.
  8. No penalty. You are at a shotgun/trap match. Yup, that's true, but sure makes us SASS shooters a bit nervous at first.
