  1. Taurus Lightning in 45 Colt..... So much blowby you needed to wear a welders helmet to shoot it! ( But that was only if it ever loaded a round without jamming!)
  2. Looking for a Smith for a magazine fed wild bunch 97. I have a Norinco and IAC.....both are driving me crazy feeding from the magazine.
  3. If I open a topic and read it, then go back to the forum, the topic I just opened is gone. If I want to return to it, it doesn't exist any longer. Any way to configure to change this?
  4. Recently I was at a three day shoot with 60 or so shooters. Only one clean shooter. What does that tell you? A few months ago I was at a 3 day match that was sold out with 200 shooters. Super big and close......50 clean shooters and some amazing fast times.....What does that tell you?
  5. This isn't about mistakes. We are all human and mistakes are part of life. That is why there are three spotters. Call them as you see them with ANY doubt going to the shooter. This is all about the words "I think"...."if you think it's a miss....." Etc.
  6. I never knew there was a WW2 museum in Natick. BTW, there is a fantastic museum at Fort Taber in New Bedford, MA.....simply amazing collection of arms from Revolution to Iraq. one of the best WWII museums is in New Orleans
  7. I posted this on a Face Book SASS group and received enormous response. Folks said it should be posted over here.... SPOTTERS...COUNTERS... What ever you call them, we need to talk. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems calling misses and hits has become quite bad. Not sure why. At Winter Range this past year I witnessed some of the worse spotting I ever saw. This past weekend I saw folks losing top ranking at a state shoot due to questionable spotting. Here is a rule to live by....if you even think the words “ I Think”...it’s a hit. If you say the words “ I Think”...it’s a hit. If you would like to go down range and inspect a target...it’s a hit. If you have no idea what the heck just happened...it’s a hit. The DOUBT...ALWAYS goes to the shooter. Stop looking at the other spotters fingers. Call them as YOU see them. If you are a questionable spotter, DONT spot! It’s not a dishonor to not spot. Especially at a state and above shoot. If you are an RO and have someone that is not a capable spotter, ask them to man the loading or unloading table. Or expedite the line. Don’t embarrass them. Simply give them another job. I don’t mean this to berate anyone, just an observation ..
  8. Now if he was drinking Critters Aiming Fluid, and had that lit match....it could have gotten interesting!
  9. Eastern Tenderfoot is BACK! Whipped me like an old mule......I need to put some banana peels out in front of his camper..... :-) Fantastic match....if you didn’t go, you missed a great one!
  10. Where do you get lemon shine? Is it a powder or a liquid?
  11. If you have access to Amazon Prime, there is a great docudrama called Quest For The Bay....8 intrepid Canadians live as 1840 fur traders and undertake an 800 mile trek in a period correct boat that weighs a ton with three tons of provisions. All clothing, food, tools etc are 1800 correct. The portages are grueling. The crossing of the big waters are perilous.Very interesting....
  12. I went to a shoot once where the directions said nothing about crossing a river.....with no bridge! Sports cars need not apply....
