  1. I put a Kelley Soule sight knows my 76 45-60. Works great!
  2. Bullseye. Cheap, available, works well.
  3. I have one that I use for a cleaning bench. The vise is handy for standing up a rifle in for scrubbing the bore. The drawers were a little weak, but some glue did wonders. I’m sure it’s sturdy enough for a press. Overall very pleased.
  4. Texas Stiles is a good guy. We gonna miss him! I know his guns. They are all top drawer. And Stiles is good to deal with.
  5. Our club has an annual “Iron Cowboy” match. Shoot a different category every stage. Gunfighter, dualist, outlaw, 2 handed, buckaroo, and wild bunch. Club officers supply the 22s and WB guns for those that don’t have them. lots of fun! I bought a 410 double just for this match! It is optional, shooter can shoot their regular category if they prefer. I always threaten to shoot a regular monthly match buckaroo, just because it’s fun to shoot 22s.
  6. I used to shoot 130 grn Bullets both rifle & pistol. Then tried 105’s in pistols, using a timer for comparison. The 105’s were almost 1 second faster in a 10 shot string. A bit more on a dump, a bit less on a multi-target sweep. 8/10ths or so ain’t much on a given stage but 8 seconds in a 10 stage match can definitely make a difference!
  7. Very few matches I’ve ever been to have a LTO. Not saying it’s right, just saying it’s the way it is. I have a pretty set routine, lay my shotgun down, then lever my rifle twice, decock and lay it down, then pull my pistols. Load rifle first. I stick with the same routine every time. Limits forgetting! I also eyeball every rifle at the table and let shooter know if they have a hammer back.
  8. It’s frustrating to me that this rule gets ignored. It’s one of the easiest SASS rules to prove (other is dropped gun) there is no question of “did he or didn’t he”? I know lots of folks want this rule to go away. I’m not totally against that, but, as long as it’s in the rules, should be enforced. if you shoot your shotgun, shuck the shells, move to another position and shotgun closes and you take a step it’s SDQ for moving with cocked gun. Nobody complains. Nobody wants to do away with that rule.
  9. The bar goes parallel to the rear axle. Basically just in front of it. I tried one, did not care for it. It took up some space under the long guns where I put extra Bullets etc. and I did not find it stable. plus when the cart was folded it stood up too high to fit under the bed cover on my truck.
  10. I tried those after shooting a plainsman match. Yes it cleaned the bore. About as well as a bore snake with a shot of Balistol
  11. Trick is on diamonds is to hold your pistols at an angle like a gangsta from the hood. Then the bullets will perceive them as squares

    And you are 100% entitled to your opinion! I don’t avoid clubs with down range movement stages, just not my favorite. I do prefer when there is downrange that requires rifle to be left behind to have a table with an angled marker to restage on, as opposed to vertically.

    berms are a good thng, for lots of reasons. That being said I dont care all that much for downrange movement. seems like somebody always forgets to prpoerly stage their rifle, or when done turns around and has gun pointed uprange. in my opinion many (not all or even most) stages with downrange mvemen seem contrived and more trouble than they are worth.
  14. I was giving it serious consideration. I have an original 74 trapdoor carbine. Good shooter. I use it in plainsman matches. Kinda thinking I want to try Cody Dixon single shot, but I don’t want to shoot my original that much. Now I’m going to be looking for another H&R trapdoor!
