  1. We still have camping spaces available for the Georgia State Championship. In my opinion, this is one of the nicest on-the-range camping areas I've seen. We have water & 30A & 50A electric. No sewer, but there is a dump station. Also, there is a shower & some of the nicest restrooms I've seen. You need to get your application in if you want to lock down a camping spot.

    Thanks Doc,

    It was a great match, copperhead Joe and crew set up some fantastic stages.

    They left some options to the shooters, some stages had a defined order.

    Everything was shooter friendly.


    The fish served  for Saturday night was worth the trip to Kentucky 



    If anybody talks to John Derringer,

    Please tell him that I found a replace loading gate screw.

    Send me your mailing address.

    I'm pretty sure I saw those on Shotgun Boogie's website also. And, hello, Cole!

    Kajun, I told you were wrong - that Badlands Bob is good for something!! And, here you have it! He found this classic video & song for us that could have been lost forever. Way to go, Badlands, Bob!!!

    Do we have posse lists anywhere??

    It's a great gun to shoot targets, varmints,  etc, but it's a terrible gun for this game. Trust me I made the mistake. Bought a 73 withing the first 2 weeks of starting. Their very stiff,  have a long lever stroke, and to my knowledge no one does any slicking up on them. I still have mine,  it's very accurate, and I like it, but it's not a "sass gun" as it's advertised to be. 

    And, if you try to run them fast, they jam. I have one. Beautiful! Doesn't work for SASS.

  5. Ophelia & I have shot almost every single weekend with Fast Eddie for about 8 years now. It is very, very rare for him to miss, & very rare for him to not win the overall at the same time. The match yesterday that Capt Bill mentioned above had 48 shooters, which included a plethora of very fast cowboys. The 2nd place shooter that Bill mentioned was his son, Iron Cowboy.

    Speaking of punishment. I will be there and since school will be out Iron Cowboy, Kid Flash and Shootin Sharyn are coming too. I’ve already reserved our usual place. 

    Iron Cowboy has been taking Sidekicks advice, lots of misses, but the raw speed…! He says you’re not going to slip by him this time.

    Iron Cowboy was 2nd of 48 fast shooters at Ocoee Rangers yesterday. He was smokin!! Kicked Dad's butt along with lots of us.

  7. Shocked & sad to hear this. First time we shot with her & Bucky was at Cherokee Cowboys. Toots was on our posse also, & she & Whisky looked so much alike I thought they were mother & daughter. Whisky, Bucky, & Toots were all fine people & great to be around.

  8. Really hate to hear that. I must admit that there's a fear in the back of my mind that one of my regular pains/etc. will suddenly make it so I can't shoot one day. Scary indeed.

  9. The camping is excellent as compared to most shoots I have been to. Water & electric on all sites, with both 30 & 50amp. No sewer, but there is a dump station. And, there's a shower as well. We almost filled up all 54 spaces last year, so you might consider getting your app in as early as possible. If you have any questions, email southrivercamping@yahoo.com.

    I imagine Sharyn has less interest in a Camaro than in a truck.

    Yeah, but driving a Camaro is a lot more fun.

    I wish I could make it.  I don't think that will change, but I guess anything is possible.

    I definitely enjoy shooting with you too!  Not to overshare, but the company I work for was sold two weeks ago.  The founder and I had a great relationship, and I had a lot of seniority.  That, plus my five weeks of vacation a year is all gone now.   Supposedly I'm entitled to 'unlimited vacation' now, but we'll see how that works in the real world.


    The last time a company I worked for was sold I lost my job within about a month.  I'm cutting back on expenditures and traveling to matches is a big one.  I'm dropping Dark Day, Alabama State, the National Championship, and probably Comin Atcha too unfortunately.   I might have to drop the Regional as well.  


    I also stepped down as a RO Instructor.  I need to basically live at work this year, like I did when I was first starting out.

    That's awful! Very sorry to hear this. I hope things work out for you in a big positive way.

  11. I have two of the Frankford arsenal vibra tubes. They hang up about 5-8 times while I'm loading 100, & I have to take it apart each time & straighten it out. I've tried everything from holding it at different angles, tapping it on the bench, using silicone spray (don't do this one), whatever I could think of. I even bought the 2nd one thinking maybe it was the one, but the new one does the same thing.


    This machine is a pain, but it's better than using the pickup tubes.


    If I knew the Hornady works perfectly, or close to perfectly, I'll spring for the price.
