    Spotting scope

    Thanks guys. Looks like I have some affordable (read cheap!) options.
  2. From the handbook A pocket pistol is a small frame, fixed sight, pre-1900 design revolver having a barrel length of four inches or less. Pocket pistols must be .31 caliber or larger. Model ā€•Pā€– Colts and clones and revolvers with swing out cylinders are specifically not allowed regardless of caliber, frame size, or barrel length. Pocket pistols may not be used as or converted to main match revolvers. So yes, 31 cal would be legal. I only shoot BP subs in mine, usually APP. Most of those old guns were made in the BP era, and really can't stand up to the pressure spikes of smokeless powder. I really enjoy shooting my pocket pistols, it's neat shooting g 100+ year old guns!

    yea, I ain't Jim No Horse with mountains of money to spend! I guess my question is can I get a usable scope for <200?

    Spotting scope

    Been dipping my toes in LR shooting. Likely going to need a spotting scope. Not going to spend big bucks, but what is about the least I can get away with? Anticipate out to 500 yds.
  5. I've had 2 SDQs once for moving with a loaded closed shotgun, another I tripped and fell and dropped an unloaded shotgun. both earned and deserved. the dropped gun or moving are easy, nobody should get their nickers in a twist over that. the more subjective ones, breaking the 180 etc, are a little tougher. usually if somebody breaks the 170 its only for a second, happens fast, and if your angle is not just right, then its a hard one to call. they are easy to see on videos, but harder in real time.
  6. Nothing but good experiences. I've bought and sold guns & gear. Never a problem. The only thing I don't care for us if a seller requests PayPal (for gear, not guns) and ask that I send it as just money to a friend, instead of paying for an item. If you use PayPal services you ought to pay for them!
  7. Great day! Great range! Only going to get better. Thanks to Judge Menday Coming and his bride for allowing the Cabs to rebuild there. They have done a ton in just a few months. Lots more room for development. The property is beautiful. You owe it to yourself to go check it out. Even got to visit with Jim No Horse. Was good to see him, plus I like shooting with him, that way I don't have to worry about finishing last!
  8. Well, I hate to hear this. I met him a year ago if so, bought a rifle from him. He was an upfront guy. Prayers up for his family.
  9. While I would not reload for others, nor use others ammo (except for a very select few) I would think a match worth if shotgun vs a match worth of cartridges would be about right.
  10. The one thing I don't like about them is they are slicker than snot on a doorknob. I didn't necessarily drop them, just harder to manipulate. I guess if I were using a bullet feeder I might like them more. I don't care for the red or pink ones. The ones Colorado Jackson sells are a very dark grey.
  11. You are correct in no "official" SASS rules for Cody Dixon. My understanding is this category was started by the good folks at the Texas Historical Shooting Society, and they made the rules. I have heard some clubs do allow H&Rs. As you said, since its not an official SASS category each club can make their own rules. I have found that the clubs I shoot C-D at use the THSS rules. http://www.thss.org/rules/cody-dixon-rules/ C-D is my favorite category to shoot. Just something about the thump of that big bore rifle. I use a 45-70 Marlin 1895. I have a H&R Buffalo Classic, but it is not legal (at least at THSS) I just bought an 1885 HiWall in 38-55, it would be a "legal" C-D single shot rifle
  12. Not sure about the Henry. I know the H&Rs are not Cody Dixon legal. Given the very simular design, I'm guessing they would not be legal either, but I'm not the one making those rules.
  13. One has to wonder why they did not make a nice double. Has to be a bigger market for them than a single shot. The rifle would be about like a H&R Handi rifle. Legal for plainsman, not for Cody Dixon.
  14. Found my HiWall, hope to pick it up Saturday. I got a deal I could not resist on a Uberti 38-55. I've ordered brass, bullets dies etc. Can't wait to shoot it! And yes, I've started dreaming about a 40-65....... I have been sight shopping. Narrowed down to MVA or Kelley. Kelley cost a few bucks more, but they are nice looking! I know MVA sights have a great reputation, anybody have experience with the Kelley sights?
  15. several of us S.Texas cowboys are making the trip up. Looking forward to seeing the new range. Also looking forward to seeing my partner Jim No Horse.
  16. It was out if commission, is back up now at www.plumcreekss.org
  17. Sounds good! Will we b Sounds good. Will we be able to post pictures direct?
  18. 1860 Henry and 1875 Remington's in 44-40. Or my 66 and Rugers in 38. Maybe all of them!
  19. What ya gonna shoot Bob? I'm thinking I may shoot BP Sharpshooter. Of course, I'm just a young pup, won't be in the old folks posse
  20. thanks for all the info. I cant wait to shoot it!
  21. I wonder if a heavy blanket or tarp behind the target would work?
