  1. If % clean =fun....Black Gold must be great fun with 25% clean shooters! Crips, I even shot it clean! I've long suggested that we should be allowed to throw out our worse stage and be scored on the remaining. I want to change my alias to " One Bad Stage"
  2. Just interested....if a Ruger 1911 is illegal to purchase new in CA, how does an FFL do a transfer from one out of state. If you think CA gun laws are terrible, visit MA!......To buy a plastic shotgun wad or any other reloading components you need to take a minimum 4hour safety course, apply for a permit from your local police chief, pay $100 and wait a couple months for approval. And nearly all SAA revolvers from ALL manufacturer are illigal except for a very few models of Ruger. Hard to play cowboy here.
  3. I have converted a number of Uberti 1873 rifles from 45LC to 38-40 and 44-40 by purchasing replacement barrels from VTI in Connecticut. They all headspaced within limits and no other modification was needed. I have not done the same with Rossi/Taurus. But I have replaced a round barrel with an octagon on a Rossi. Same caliber...45LC to 45LC. I found the octagon barrel on Ebay. It fit fine only needed to cut new dovetail for the forarm hanger. No headspace issues. Contact Steve at Steve's Guns https://stevesgunz.com/ He is the Guru for what you want to do with a Rossi/Taurus 92 and he might just have the barrel you want.
  4. 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!)
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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 ..
  11. Now if he was drinking Critters Aiming Fluid, and had that lit match....it could have gotten interesting!
  12. 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!
  13. Where do you get lemon shine? Is it a powder or a liquid?
  14. 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....
  15. I went to a shoot once where the directions said nothing about crossing a river.....with no bridge! Sports cars need not apply....
  16. And while I'm on a rant...... In the Chronicle, there are ads for matches and most times they dont even list the state they are in......a few didn't even list the city!
  17. I've shot at a whole bunch of gun clubs all over the country. I go to their web sites and they have "Turn By Turn" directions to the club, but only one or two had actual address listed. Even when I register for a shoot, some forms have T by T directions but no darn address!! Some folks might have entered this century and own a GPS.................... :-) Why the prohibition?

    1873 in MA

    They did a NH transfer two weeks ago for a friend that bought a shotgun. Must be over $300 purchase.
  19. That kid can shoot. 10 stages at Black Gold....total time 130 seconds

    If you buy at Kittery, be sure to have the rifle or shotgun transferred at the Kittery NH Transfer Station......then you do not pay any sales tax!
