  1. Pretty good sales plan. Sale you a gun with a goofy action. Then sale you the parts to fix it. But at least there is an option available.
  2. I'm not sure how well this would work for a light load of smokeless but I have weighed cartridge to try to find those out of spec. I was loading BlackMZ and after a while I noticed the powder was bunching or bridging up. It would cause a light charge on one then a heavy change on the next until I finally caught it. I weighed a charged case and bullet to get a normal load weight. Then weighed each loaded one. I separated the light, correct and heavy weight loads. Then broke down the light and heavy loads. There weren't many.
  3. Seems like we get more gunfighters every match. I'd be interested in what kinds of fhings you would be covering?
  4. It may be common knowledge and I'm the last to know. But I was looking at Uberti parts on Taylor's web site and stumbled onto retrofit 4-click hammers and triggers for the Cattleman II guns. Reasonable priced too. https://taylorsfirearms.com/catalog/product/view/id/12766/s/old-style-parts-kit-for-uberti-retractable-firing-pin-revolvers/category/464/
  5. Do you have a source for that? I read a Guns and Ammo article online that said primers are on ships heading our way. But will have to get here, get unloaded and past customs, and out to distributors. (I hear all kinds of rumors. One gunshop owner told me all the primers were made in China and they shut us off.)
  6. And it appears to be isolated to one chamber.
  7. Have you taken this up with Ruger? I bet they cut the chambers in some automated gang operation. Maybe one chamber didn't get a final cut?
  8. Your title should be: I am shocked at what people are paying for primers. it's not what people are asking but are actually bidding to buy.
  9. I can't see that the primer shortage is worldwide. Surely with the market potential primers could be imported from South America or Europe or even Asia. I remembered the last run on primers there were plenty of Tula and Wolf.
  10. We try to have a loading table officer 100% of the time. But sometimes nobody will step up and relieve the table guy. Then we have another shooter at the table check the next guy. I check for number of rounds loaded and hammers down on empty. And sometimes I catch one that didn't end up down on empty. Another violation I watch for is shooters strolling back to their carts with loaded pistols. Experienced guys are as bad as new guys when it comes to that.
  11. At our monthly matches I try to set up two inexpensive action cams on tripods out in front. I cut from one to the other. You can see one clearly in the shot from the other camera and the leg of the other from the other camera. At first shooters were real leary of the cameras and I had to place them far away behind a tree. But they have become accustomed to them being up close. I use the waterproof cases to give protection from splatter but drilled holes for the microphones. I set them up with battery packs and go on with the match. You can see me manning the loading table for much of the stage. Introducing Texas Joker shooting his very first stage borrowing three guns.
  12. I just take 50 grit sandpaper and scuff the butt area of the butt cover. Sawmill Mary sewed me one up out of denim. I laced it over the buttplate with leather bootlace. That worked real well.
  13. Box stock. Check with CZ-USA. They will likely send you another set of springs for free if you've had the gun less that 5 years. We came across a Liberty that was made by the same company and the springs had been Dremeled to death. I replaced them with springs from CZ-USA.
