  1. I'm thinking about it. It is only about a 6 hour trip.
  2. No, not all. Many like to have the trigger set more "forward" where it is in the middle of the trigger guard rather than at the back. But it depends a lot more on the shooter than the trigger shape.
  3. Around Jackson: https://www.google.com/maps/d/view?mid=1a5THNVZ2Dm_-CUf9h8jW6-fO8k1DPpab&ll=34.75887289902522%2C-77.523650490625&z=9

  5. You can go down to 13 grains of Clays and even a little lower, if it is not cold weather (below 45 degrees.) Of course getting the gun to fit the shooter is a big help in reducing recoil.
  6. Those were great days!!! Enjoy what you have now pards, we cannot go back anymore than I can get younger. Love one another.
  7. He will be missed. Joining in on the prayers for the family.
  8. A very nice gun once tuned up. Well worth it to have a gunsmith slick up the gun and "re-time" it so it opens fully.
  9. Most consider the SKB as top of the line and is priced accordingly, especially one well slicked up. They come in different models with the 100 being the lightest and the 200, etc heavier. The BSS is also excellent but can be hard to find. I hear good things about the new Charles Daly and the older Charles Dalys were essentially SKB's as I recall. Not sure of the CZ but the folks selling them have a good reputation so they cannot be bad. Baikels are very stout and can bee good after being tuned up - but no longer readily available and not as smooth as s
  10. Looking at videos and getting a mentor would be great. If you are at all mechanically inclined, don't worry about a single stage as you do not need it unless you want to load precision rifle loads. For what we use, you do not need it. You would then have to learn the slow process of single loading. Then you would STILL need help to learn how to use your much more efficient press. The Lee book is great and the recommended Lyman Cast book is great for information on loads for cast (and powdered) bullets.
  11. Don't break your fingers! The little plastic things are not a good replacement. I tried them and kept dropping things.
  12. https://cylindersmith.com/Transferbar.html I did have one or maybe two break several years ago. I think it was when the "New Vaqueros" just came out. Just to be safe, I checked my Vaqueros and found one or two that did pinch, so I did that mod. Some have said that if the hammer timing is off, due to spring wear, it can increase the chance of breakage, but as others have noted, it is rare.
  13. I use 3.7 grains of ETR7 with 125 grain bullets in 38 Special. Nice soft recoil.
  14. I like ETR7 and wish I had more. But saying it is like titegroup is not accurate. I'll get back with you on what load I use for 38's.
  15. A link without the tracing: https://www.thecentersquare.com/arizona/arizona-ammunition-company-facing-135-million-order-backlog-others-see-more-than-1-billion/article_f387998c-3fe6-11eb-8832-e74a2ddd80a6.html
  16. I would also recommend a 30-30 and for hunting use Leverevolution ammo. Improved ballistics for further range, etc. https://www.opticsplanet.com/hornady-ammo-30-30-win-160gr-ftx-lvrev-20-82730.html https://www.hornady.com/ammunition/leverevolution#!/
  17. Thanks for the work and providing new ideas. Of course, the length of the document and number of sweeps shows that using names is "fun" but not good for stage writing as who can remember 320 sequences!!? I tired of the attempt at names long ago as it was shown to be a problem at many matches and merely listing the sequence is always needed other than "sweep" and "Nevada Sweep." (So I often use the Funk and Wagner's sweep as well as the doo-wah-didly sweep.) But having the list and spelling out the actually sequence will provide shooters great variety.
  18. An interesting history is the 1933 gun bills. They were set up to provide work for the former "alcohol police." Of course, it was at the early to mid "progressive period" where "progressives/liberals/marxists" wanted the government to take rights away from citizens. But due to the people understanding history, the laws were generally based on the idea that IF the army had the weapon, citizens could as well. Now, they didn't think about the BBARs and they should have. And they had not researched to show that "shorted shotguns" and some other types were in mi
