  1. Not exactly HSTN, but the Plum Creek club shoots 1st Saturday, near Lockhart. Texas Riviera Pistoleros shoots 2nd Saturday, near George West (Between San Antonio & Corpus) If you come for the match, I'll pay your entry, and feed you after! THSS shoots in Columbus 3rd Sunday, I think.
  2. 33 at my house in S Texas this morning. I guess I cant complain! I too have some loading to catch up on, loaded 44-40 & 45 Schoefield with 777 yesterday, will lad 12g 777 maybe tonite. then some 45-70, then work on 38sp. I load all throughout the year. We shoot year-round, although in the summertime it does get HOT.
  3. I had sent an email to club a couple of weeks ago, asking a question about Trailhead 2017, they said they were having a board meeting in mid December to get details ironed out, so I'm guessing will see something soon. I'm looking forward to going!

    at the state matches I've been to I've never heard that the spotters, Loading/unloading table officers, expediters or scorekeeper had to be RO trained. Heck at most larger matches in many cases a non-shooting spouse keeps score for the posse. I would agree that TOs/posse marshals etc should be RO I & II at a state level or above match. Not necessarily that it makes them a better TO, but it would generally indicate that they have more experience. I'm thankful top those who are willing to grab the timer at large matches. its a big responsibility. Nobody wants to DQ somebody, even if the shoo

    refreshers are nice, but not necessary, especially at a monthly match. at state or higher, it would be a good idea. more importantly, is having a flow chart handy, with rules. then you don't have to "think" you can get the card and figure it out. Everyt shooter ought to take the classes whenever they have an opportunity. I hope to take refresher this spring.
  6. If anybody has actual knowledge on how this could be made to happen, maybe let Misty know. I for one do not have enough computer skills to suggest a fix.
  7. tempting! I may have to look at that for one of mine!
  8. check out these guys for 45 ACP. I shoot 4-6 WB matches a year, so really did not want to start reloading another caliber. found these, and they have worked fine. Zero failures in my Remington R1 1911. https://goodtogoammo.com/product/45-acp-230-gr-red-viper/
  9. Misty Moonshine emailed me back, will look into it. She too does not know why we cant post direct, has heard different reasons. she is going to get back to us, but will probably be after the first of the year.
  10. I sent Misty a email. asking why. Looking forward to her reply.
  11. I wish we could post direct. I've tried the photo bucket route, no joy. I can post pictures direct to Facebook, craigslist, emails etc, why not direct to this forum? I've heard it takes up too much bandwidth....whatever that is..... but I don't really know. Seems like if we can send a man to the moon we ought to be able to fix this. If its a question of $$$$, I bet most of us would pony up a few bucks a year to pay for the privilege. What say you SASS?
  12. Godspeed John Glenn. thank you for your service to our country. When I was a kid I lived in Central Florida. when NASA had a launch, we would go outside to watch.
  13. Slippery little boogers. I tried some in 38 sp, they work fine, but hard to grab with my big ole fat fingers. I've tried wearing fingertip gloves, can't stand them. Same with any sort of rubber glove. I like them SPG lubed bullets from Ringers Bullets!
  14. hoping to make it. will get my application in soon.
  15. he only needs the 1 spur. If he gets one side of the horse going, the other side is naturally going to go too! My old dad told me that when I lost a spur when I was a kid. Fond memories!
  16. The cap in the palm will definitely get your attention!
  17. some wimmin just have no taste atall! Mine put the kibosh on a stuffed aramadillo.
  18. my wife shoots those, but with 5" barrel. called Lightings. (maybe the longer barrel?) anyways, she likes them more than my Rugers. they are much lighter. I've loaded some 105 grn bullets and 130 grn bullets for her. She, nor I, can tell any appreciable difference in recoil between the 2. Best advice I can give is if she wants to shoot, get her what she wants. they likely down in value, so you can get your money back. if you are sharing a shotgun, get it cut to fit her.
  19. Where are you from? Go to a local match, find a mentor. If you want to be "competitive" you probaly want 38sp. Hard to beat the Ruger Vaqueros. Couple if options on grips/hammers. You won't need a back-up Rifle wise a 66 or 73, from Cody Conager or Long Hunter. I have both. I like the 66 more, but I think the 73 is probably better. If you get a 66 reinforce the loading gate. Bakail SXS by Johnny Meadows. For another $1000 you can get the SKB. Get quality leather from a cowboy leather maker. I got mine from Johnny Meadows, j-m leather. You have to decide on cross
  20. I put date on my 38 Sp, mostly because I usually load 100-1500 or so at a time. Don't want to have a box get "old" My others I don't worry that much, if I'm loading with BP I put a black sharpie mark on primer.
  21. Be still my heart! I love these old pistols, wish I had the discretionary funds fro this one!
  22. I have 6. They make great gifts, or, shooters prizes. We gave some away at a match, had the club name on them. MM is a great guy to do business with.
