  1. Poney, Rev, Josie, and all workers at Tulsey Town did a great job of putting together the 2nd Classic Cowboy Showdown, Ghosts of the Mohawk. Don't think the Classic Cowboys there had any better time than the large bunch of us non-CCs. Seven good stages and Rowdy Beller served up some fine chili to go along with all the visiting and hospitality afterwards. Sassy and I enjoyed our first trip to Tulsey Town and hope to get back soon. We needed a little time away from home and the location was excellent to fine restaurants and hotels in Owasso. Congratulations to Overall winners, Scott Wayne and Della. In the CC was OK Dirty Dan (smokeless), Naildriver (BP), and Checka Bow Wow in Ladies
  2. TW, I agree with your thoughts here and suggest that your 4th point (which can blend into the 5th point as well) might be one of the more valuable reason to be DD.\ As someone mentioned earlier, Doc R P. is the exception of perhaps all the "transfer" duelist I have seen, an awesome duelist.
  3. shot tens of thousands GM200M. Excellent primers. Grab them.
  4. Interesting, I just had my 1956 Benjamin reworked by ol' friend who I used to shoot against in IHMSA, now in the refurbishing air gun business in Brownsville, Tx. Works as good as it did when I was 12.
  5. Got to spend drug money somewhere. I thought it was going to save my shooting at time with the then rumors of powder shortage. $16/lb then...I'd take my money back...and give discount now. I bought a lot and Non Stop even took some. Not sure NS ever tried it, perhaps in shotgun. Stuff is Spanish powder by Maxam. Claims one can use Universal load data. I found with the amount that suited my accuracy criteria, it produced more recoil than I liked as "ol duelist". I don't reload shotgun so it just sets unused. May be a time it is needed...of course, would need primers.
  6. I like to have a 147 or 135 on my belt. 135 is round point with just enough flattening on point to be magazine safe. 147 has more flattened point but a nice sleek cone shape for loading into gate (crimped on ogive). All crimped where crimp die is set for loading of the 105s...KIS, same powder charge also.
  7. FWIW, I find loading in gate more successful. I do it somewhat different from LH as I drop rifle from shoulder, holding flatter, so I am looking down at gate. Although the drop from shoulder may seem to loose time, and perhaps it does, I do not feel a struggle to see and get cartridge into gate as I do if I am holding on my shoulder(time loss) . Of several shotgun belts, all have at least one loop in center of shotgun pairs so that a round is somewhat center of body and near where rifle is in hand when lowered. I suspect learning to retrieve round from loop on left side of shotgun rounds should also be efficient with practice. ( I actually like a couple on each end of shotgun loops, but not necessarily for the purpose of rifle reloads). I find this technique of loading round into gate can be practiced to some extent even at loading table as I load for stage, just use the left hand to load. One does not have to do it with every round, but a few helps maintain the feel and ability. Note: a strong magazine spring negates success in thru the gate technique.
  8. How about CSB-1? I bought a bunch of that back years ago when there was big scare of long time shortage.
  9. Personally, I have found that the serious "rookie" BP competitor will often ask a well established BP shooter to give opinion to their smoke so that they feel comfortable with what others see (as meeting standard). I know I have been asked to observe, and I might note that the question of data is not important since it is all about smoke "appearance". I find the sport we love so much is very much about a good competitor wanting to be accepted in the eyes of their peers. Sure there are those who may push the borderline, but "at the end of the day", want to be on good side of that line. There are those in BP that push far above standard as there are those that push well above power factor in smokeless.
  10. Yes and at a eot. Competitor passed test with his 32s
  11. I hit 77 next August. God has blessed us. We sure had some good time in our silhouette days also.
  12. CATTLE BARON....surely not. But wait, WE are, aren't WE?
  13. Doc R.I. Pain won one of the AGE BASED Duelist categories.
