  1. We usually get them down on the deck doing contour flying on the lake on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We live at the junction of the main channel and the Gravois Arm. They're often flying downstream on the main, then take a hard bank to port to fly up the Gravois as they rattle our windows. Love it.
  2. Understood. It was unclear in your post, and that was why I said, "IF."
  3. The TO was correct. As long as the shooter staged all firearms on the line, it's safe and the TO's call to allow the shooter to retrieve their shotshells. Had I been the TO, I would have opted for have them return to the loading table as Ranger Dan suggested, so they could regroup and keep the stage moving.
  4. And, IF the shooter "borrowed" that ammo during the course of fire, that is illegally acquired ammo and subject to both a procedural and misses. "Illegally acquired ammunition – ammo NOT carried to the line or staged by the shooter in an approved manner." - SHB, p. 45 "The penalty of using “illegally acquired” ammunitions (i.e., NOT carried to the line/staged by the shooter in an approved manner) is a PROCEDURAL. Any targets hit using that ammo are scored as MISSES. NO adjustments will be made to the stage raw time ." - SHB, p. 19
  5. New info from the CDC which is good news for our shoots: https://www.foxnews.com/health/cdc-now-says-coronavirus-does-not-spread-easily-via-contaminated-surfaces
  6. Well, the article at the beginning of this thread uses the NYT's database which has been shown to be highly error ridden. I wouldn't base any decision on it. And the data quoted was only through May 3. Lots has changed since then. I don't blame you for questioning covid19.healthdata. It is funded by Gates which is why I watch it closely for bias. That said, there is often issues with the raw data sent that takes time to validate and cleanse. I think that along with the change in metrics being reported is what you observed. My analytics team is pulling and comparing data from multiple sources including covid19.heathdata and Johns Hopkins covid19 tracker to prepare analyses. We're not observing any significant bias in the covid19.healthdata. And the good news is with all the credible sources the key indicators peaked in April and have been on a healthy, historically normal downward curve since. The US has also hit the 1% of population test per day threshold which finally makes the actual case numbers more statistically meaningful. I share your concern on this being abused to support agendas and the censorship of other points of view. Epidemiologists long held as leaders in their field are being kept out of this discussion by the tech giants, the CDC and the WHO. There's big money on the line for those currently being allowed a voice which is why I question their motives in silencing other knowledgeable opinions. FOLLOW THE MONEY it will lead you to the truth. https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/05/15/we-could-open-up-again-and-forget-the-whole-thing/ https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/05/18/why-is-youtube-censoring-scientists/
  7. Impressive. On the opposite end of the spectrum was the strip mine shovel operator who thought he could meter out a bit of the 50 yards of spoil he had in his bucket into the "bed" of an F150. It blew out the sides of the bed, flatten the cab and compressed the hood and fenders into the shape of the engine below. Dad fixed a lot of them for the mine, but that one was an unrecoverable total.

    Big Drink

    Fantastic news! Great to hear my friend! Hope to see you at the range soon.
  9. Not to mention all of the cash that passes through strip clubs and the places it's "seen."
  10. I'm not a doctor, but I work with my share of them in my consulting work which includes healthcare operational and strategic analytics. That deep in the data you can't help but learn a lot about the realities of the healthcare business.
  11. Truth. Even the N 95 is only 95% effective at it's best. With enough exposure, the odds are that a healthcare worker is going to contract the virus.
  12. Nothing short of an N 95 mask will stop most viruses including COVID 19. The N 95 filters particles down to 0.3 microns. At it largest, the COVID 19 virion is 0.14 microns; half the size of the N 95 filtration limit. N 95 masks are a high-tech design that utilizes four methods of filtration; inertial impaction, interception, diffusion, and electrostatic attraction. Given that the COVID 19 virus is significantly smaller than the direct filtration limits of the N 95, virions can be suspended in the filter through the first three methods only if they are also trapped in some larger form in the aerosol like a water molecule. It's primarily the electrostatic method that captures virions and that has a limited lifespan (8 hours of continuous use according to the CDC). Home-made masks have no electrostatic capacity and the cloth weave even in layers is too loose to have any filtering effect on virions, but they are damn good virion incubators as they trap moisture and are rarely properly sterilized. Knowing this, I won't voluntarily join in the farce by wearing a homemade mask. These mandates are not based on science but sociology and politics. Here's a good analysis of the filtering properties of cloth masks compared to the N 95. https://academic.oup.com/annweh/article/54/7/789/202744
  13. To my knowledge only Shotgun Boogie offers a titanium carrier. https://sbgwllc.myshopify.com/collections/rifle/products/aluminum-carrier-38spec-357mag-for-uberti-mod-win-73?variant=28011742167126

    Primers???

    Federal is my choice. Small Magnum Pistol Primers for 777 loads in .38spl. The better burn keeps the fouling down. Small Pistol for Trailboss loads in .38spl. Large Pistol Primers for .44-40 with 700x and .45 ACP with WST. Winchesters are my second choice.
  15. Current rule book reads: "A full-size single stack steel frame 1911 style semi-auto pistol in .45 ACP caliber is required." No mention of a revolver. https://www.sassnet.com/Downloads/SASS WILD BUNCH Action Shooting Handbook Vers 14_4 031420.pdf
