  1. Just drove down Rockwall parkway in Rockwall TX.
  2. If at all possible arrange for all firearms to be picked up directly from the dealer. Warranty paperwork is much easier. No club members can be accused of straw purchases and the club is shielded from liability. I am am a member of a club that gives away several firearms every year to club members and our LGS is happy to assist us every year in exchange for the free advertising.
  3. Count your blessings. Venison is by far the most expensive meat there is in TX.
  4. Alpo is correct. BB ricocheted into the engine. As part of every preflight inspection a person crawls down the intake and inspects the front of the compressor for damage and FOD. Unfortunately the BB was not discovered and it caused the engine to fail. At full power, a jet engine can create a strong enough vortex to easily pick up objects near the intake if the aircraft is not moving. However even a small amount of forward movement is enough to disrupt the vortex. There is an airline in Canada that flies supplies to mines accessible only by air. They fly 717 or 727 aircraft and utilize gravel runways. To prevent the engines from picking up FOD they have a probe that disrupts the vortex. They also have special rock deflectors on the landing gear to protect the fuselage from rocks kicked up by the tires.
  5. There are lots of good AR-15 options under $800.00 Do you have a local firearms dealer or gunsmith that supports the local clubs? Especially Annual and above matches. Go to them with your request and see what they can do for you. Bet they will order you a firearm at or slightly above cost, hold it until the winner is picked, and take care of the transfer. In exchange you put their name on all your raffle advertising. It is a win win for you and the dealer. Another option a club I know is contemplating is providing the winner with a gift certificate not to exceed a set dollar amount that they can use to buy the firearm of their choice. The certificate is not redeemable for cash and is only good at the LGS.

  7. It was obvious that the Red River Valley Cowpokes went all out in putting on their first state match. Iron Tomahawk Kid, Calamity DiBar, Tomanator, Storme, Cowboy Shooters Supply plus a whole host of others went above and beyond to host one heck of a match.
  8. My money is on the stump. I'll occasionally loose but more often than not I'll win and get a good laugh in the process.
  9. I wonder how many hours it will take to find all those little plastic pellets? IIRC the Marines lost a Harrier because someone up the chain of command decided that using a BB gun to get rid of the birds in the hanger was a good idea. One BB found its way into the intake of one of the Harriers parked in the hanger and evaded detection during all the preflight checks. As the jet cleared the runway during a normal take off roll the engine failed and the Harrier crashed a short distance past the end of the runway. Once the cause had been determined there was a priority safety bulletin informing all Navy and Marine Corps aviation units banning the use of BB guns and pellet rifles inside hangers or on the flight line.
  10. Pull a couple rounds and see what color the brass is inside. Know a shooter that picked up some 10+ year old 10X in 45 colt loaded with a BP sub. 8 out of 10 split when fired. Pulled a couple bullets and the brass inside the cases had a red tint to it. Suspect something in the powder attacked the brass and made it brittle.
  11. I never have problems with these. Federal Top Gun Extra Lite Ammunition 12 Gauge 2-3/4" 7/8 oz #8 Shot. Buy them on sale with free shipping for %5.99 to $6.99 a box.
  12. Have you tried Remington Gun Clubs? Cheaper than the STS and also slightly smaller in diameter than the AAs
  13. That is what I got from my Kindles the August match. Raw time Number of misses, Total penalty time. (sum of all misses, procedurals, and Minor safetys. Total Time
  14. But the rails keep the train from wandering. At 60 MPH a car travels about 88 feet per second. That is just shy of 300 yards every 10 seconds.
  15. One important thing to point out is that the menus on the ipad version are slightly different than the Android version. And the menus will be slightly different when installed on a phone vs tablet. The differences are minor but just wanted to point that out. If you have problems or suggestions be sure to fill out a bug report. The programmers have been very receptive to fixes and improvements. https://practiscore.on.spiceworks.com/portal/tickets https://practiscore.com/
  16. Commercials don’t lie they just “ misspoke “
  17. Problem is they can’t see the brass either so you end up only getting back about 1/2 your brass.
  18. Never have skipped ahead when reading a book. Have done it with a couple of movies. When I first started reading Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time books they were really good. However as the books progressed he started getting too detailed about things that had no relevance to the story line so I lost interest. The first book in Steven King’s Dark Tower series is a little boring but I stuck it out as it is key to understanding Roland in the rest of the books.
