  1. As an old Texan once told me, "Never let the truth get in the way of a great story."
  2. You bring up an excellent point. Once they are where you want them, you don't want them to move.
  3. No doubt that the Buscadero can look cool, but they have some issues shooters need to consider. Our competition holster have improved SOOO drastically since we started. We used to try "authentic" thin leather holsters patterned after 100 year old designs that were made more for secure holding the gun rather than actually using the gun. Now we find rigid holsters to be much easier and safer to use. Look at the set you picture. First, the holster position is locked in - and normally not where most shooters would like - especially as we get a little older and lack full flexibility. Thhis applies to both the position and the holster angle. Next, it helps if the mouth of the holster is slightly flared outward to make reholstering easier. Notice that this set uses leather straps to hold the lower holster in place. That is an option, but it makes movement, setting down, etc more difficult. Most really good holster rigs (Holster & belt) now can hold the holster in place due to their more rigid construction. So the need for the extra string is eliminated.
  4. Still praying for Michele and the family!
  5. I didn't weld it.  All I did was use a file/stone and removed the notch on the hammers. 

     

    No need for welding.  Just make sure there is no "catch" for the sear there.

      Thanks. I thought I might be able to do that.

  6. Don't give up!

     

    Fast Eddie wants as much feedback as possible and he does consider input very important.  So he may very well decide to do the 5 and 5 as we have done in the past, but as you can tell it is a balancing act.

     

    And thanks for the offer to help with the scoring.  We can always use more help, especially as many of us are not what we once were.

     

    Sorry Petey did n't have his usual match.  I always enjoy shooting with him as he has been one of my hero's in the sport.

      Still had a great time!

  7. Titegroup does work well, but it is a little louder than some and have a sharper recoil  It can also be used for a 12 gauge load.

    "I was looking at the Hodgon load data website and they have loads listed using Titegroup powder, This peeked my interest as I have lots of it on hand for pistol calibers I load for. the lightest load I see they have listed is for one ounce. My question is would it be okay to use this data for a Lee 7/8 oz slug.Or would anyone know of a source of load data for 7/8 oz loads.The loads listed below are starting and middle of the road so I assume I would be ok.


    Hodgdon Titegroup Rem. 209P Rem. TGT 12 17.3 8,900 PSI 1,235 fps
    Hodgdon Titegroup Rem. 209P Rem. TGT 12 18.6 10,100 PSI 1,290 fps"

     

    Unique is a little dirtier but is also a great powder for both.

     

    Clays is a great option for 12 gauge and can be used for the 9mm.  But since it is a little fast for the 9mm, you will have to load near max for a reliable load.  My only concern is that if the pistol is new it sometimes wants a higher velocity load to break them in.  But i have shot a lot of Clyays in 9mm and it has worked well in nearly all my pistols.

      Thanks, Marauder!  That's all great information.  I appreciate it.

  8. Wow, Carolina is really losing it.  A bit of an ego problem.

     

    We need folks that can spot, time and watch the loading and unloading tables.

     

    All tasks are important even when we cannot do every single task.

     

    You hang in there!

      I got them today.

       

      Thanks!

  10. I find that Trail Boss is cleaner and better with a little more powder. 

     

    So I use 3.6 grains with 105 and 125 grain bullets.

  11. Not sure about if they will post the stages.

     

    But many matches no longer post posse lists due to so many wanting to swap posses - only to want to swap again when someone else does.  So it creates a LOT of extra work. 

    But they will allow folks to ask about switching when they sign up, but probably get only one change per person.

  12. You are in trouble now :D:D

     

    Now we all want to hear your program.

     

    Can i give you a call?

  13. Thanks!

     

    Yes it was Squaw Creek Rose.

  14. I sooo agree with your comments on the "safety rules!"    Both about moving and about an empty round in an open action. 

    I also worked with safety for about 40 years and understand that as you add more rules, you almost always create more confusion and reduce safety.

     

    Thanks for your well reasoned comments.

      Thank you for your comments.  It's so hard to get some folks to understand the concept that more rules create many more problems.  It's like they are blind to anything they don't agree with.  It's more like the government trying to protect us from ourselves making us reliant on someone else to think for us and/or giving folks someone else to blame for our own mistakes.

      It further became a problem in the late 1800's when they thought up "social sciences."  They thought that they could even create a "perfect contract" that people would not break.  Along with the idea that we can communicate verbally much better than we actually can.

       

      Thus, if we create the right rule and word it just right. . .  

      Then we don't have to think. .

       

      Our govenment and society are now eaten up with the idea even thought they hate it.

  15. I bought some ETR7 powder a couple years ago and like it.  But I don't think it is readily available anymore.

    Do you know of a source?

      Yes it could in some ways, with the flakes that get all of the media attention.

      The real folks of Colorado are still the same.;)

  17. As a student of statistics, sampling and measurement, it does make a difference in the impact, although not the process. The number of shooters defines the index or sampling for the accuracy of the system. Just as a valid sampling is needed for a poll. So the larger the sample, the more accurate the measurement. If you are in a gun fight close up, misses are much more dangerous to you than if you are at 20 yards - because your opponent is much less likely to miss at close range than further out. . So it is entirely appropriate for the impact of a miss or mistake to vary, depending on the circumstance. For example, if you stumble and lose 5 seconds in a race.. If it is a sprint, that stumble has a MUCH larger impact than in a longer run. Are you saying that is not fair? Similarly, if you fumble on the 2 yard line in football, it normally is much worse than fumbling at mid-field. Should football change it's scoring to make that more fair? In a rank point match, it is important to beat out as many people as you can on each stage. So if it is a fast stand and deliver, a miss will hurt you much more because many more shooters will beat you. That is fair - they beat you.
