    Loading Table Officer

    Absolutely a first time shooter is assigned an experienced shooter to monitor him from gun cart to loading table, then loading table to firing line. Turned over to TO. Then when done escorted to ULT, cleared and taken back to guncart. Remind them to breath ! Usually they have a big silly looking grin on their face! We stay with them for as many stages (or matches) as needed until they are comfortable with the procedure
  3. I must have missed that. But I bet thee are others wide enough
  4. Try a cinch Latigo. 6’ long. Plenty heavy. https://www.statelinetack.com/item/oxbow-latigo-cinch-strap/E031207/?srccode=GPSLT&gclid=CjwKCAjwwab7BRBAEiwAapqpTJRI9EJAaAcUVHXChE4JIK3uP7ZdvU9osrqUxELrNxCPWzTs5rTEFxoCstUQAvD_BwE
  5. Just use sand paper to rough up the leather
  6. Just curious, how many of you shoot at clubs that have a LTO? I know what the rules say, but at least where I shoot LTOs are rarely seen. At most somebody may say “check my pistol” but that’s about it. One club used to insist on dedicated LTO, and only one person loading at a time. They seem to have relaxed that policy over the last couple of years. For the record, Every club I shoot at requires a ULT. often the previous shooter stays to clear the next shooter. I’m curious if this is a regional thing or pretty much everywhere?
  7. You are correct. But I can tell you that in the parts of the country I shoot at LTOs are scarce. I dong know if that’s regional to S Texas or not. One club I shoot at used to insist on an LTO, only one person loading at a time. They seem to have relaxed that policy tho. And I’m not saying an LTO is a bad thing, I’m just talking g how it is where I shoot. Some shooters will ask another to “check my pistols” but that’s about it. I do try to look at everybody’s rifle hammer while at the table to make sure they are down.
  8. That’s the call! Never mind phantom and I. We would argue over what day of the week it is!
  9. As others have said, shotgun belt is better location. You doing want to be reaching way back for a bullet for a reload!
  10. Ok phantom, Please answer this question and this question only: shooter comes to line from loading table with revolver loaded with 5 Rounds. Opens the gate. (No cylinder movement) empty chamber under the gate. Is there a penalty?
  11. To be clear, I don’t get my kicks issuing penalties. Just answering a what if call. And I think it’s easy to determine the cylinder position in this case. Just ask the shooter if he rotated it.
  12. So far (at least) I haven’t gone On you. (Yet .) I think it’s relevant if he turned the cylinder or not. In the OP, it said he opened gate, inserted round in Empty chamber.no mention of rotating cylinder. If he had 5 loaded, and pistol was properly indexed, then the empty chamber would be under the hammer. So unless he rotated the cylinder it had a live round under hammer. Clearly a rule violation. I’m not sure how I can be much clearer.
