  1. Every type of target / stand is going to throw the occasional large, odd piece of lead the wrong way too fast for comfort sooner or later. Golden BBs are bound to occur, it is the law of averages. Wife got hit in the thigh one day so hard it left a bruise through her jeans. Se was a good 20 feet behind the firing line when it happened and it hit hard enough that thought she had been shot. Lead generally leaves the target at 90 degrees to the direction of impact, just like the balls do on a pool table. 98% of splatter is caused by the double bank shot of lead hitting one surface then hitting a second that sends it back towards the firing line. Most SG KDs have 90 degree inside corners in their design. This is why splatter from them is so common. 100's of projectiles means that the odds of splatter are pretty high. Rebar stands have more angled surfaces so the odds of one throwing splatter are greater but a good design that places all or most of the frame behind the target will greatly minimize this. Personally I think more splatter comes from targets that are WAY TOO CLOSE. The current trend of pistol targets at less than 2 yards and SG KDs at only 5 is going to create a lot of splatter. Eventually the law of averages is going to win out and someone is going to get hurt by splatter coming off a target that is too close. Prop ledges, loading, and unloading tables covered with small pieces of lead should make the MD take notice that the targets are too close. How many MDs have taken the time to look at the target side of your range props. Are they full of lead splatter that hit hard enough to stick? If so maybe it is time to move those targets back. Shot a match recently where myself and at least 5 other people had been hit by splatter hard enough to draw blood.
  2. I have had good luck with Michelin all terrain tires. Put them on my Sequoia and really liked them. They were M&S rated but the tread was not overly agressive and they had a 60K warranty. I found them by reading a lot of reviews on different sites. Sometimes subtle differences can make a big difference in how a tire wears. The tires on my wife's mini van fell into this category. By switching to a T rated tire the tread wear and customer ratings almost doubled but the tire only cost an extra $10. Had to order them as that model wasn't stocked but it was worth it.
  3. That is why I have a stash of 2 liter soda bottles by the freezer. Use then to take up any excess space. Need more room I remove a few. They also double as an emergency source of fresh water. A chest freezer will keep a lot longer than an upright.
  4. Would consider a trade for something 45-70 or 38-55 orientated. Right now I don't have any 45 cal firearms
  5. Retired from my first career at the ripe old age of 49 years, 10 Months, and 3 days. Plan on retiring from my second one as soon as my 401K will let me.

  10. STANDBY........................................
  11. 98% of us don't have that option. I would love to be able to shoot real BP but my current residence will not allow me to safely store real BP.
  12. I thought you were going to say it started with all the rules on ONE sheet of paper. :D
  13. All liberal arts degrees have the mandatory requirement of being able to say "Do you want Fries with that" in both English and Spanish .
  14. Definitely dampen first. Eliminates the dust and makes it easier to remove. Cover the floors and up the wall to at least the top of the baseboards with a large sheet of plastic drop to catch any that falls to the floor Rig up a low scaffold so you can cover a larger area rather than using a ladder. I used cinder blocks and a 2X12 so that i could cover an area about 3 feet wide by 10 feet long. Much easier than constantly moving a ladder. My shop vac had an 4X6 attachment for the large hose. I used 2 hose clamps and a couple of wedges to clamp a scraper to the attachment so that as I scraped it fell into the shop vac attachment. This caught 90% of the material. 99.99% chance that after the popcorn is removed the ceilings will have to be re mudded before they can be painted. If you are selling the house I would leave the ceilings alone. I highly doubt that you will get enough extra in the sale price to cover the expense much less the hassle of removing the popcorn and remudding the ceilings. I removed it from ONE house because the ceilings were heavily smoked by a fire place used incorrectly the previous owner. Before I do it again I'll paint over it.
  15. Before his death, Arvo Ojala taught many a hollywood star start how to handle a gun. He also patented lining a holster with steel to facilitate faster drawing. http://youtu.be/JVZ4IbSjHAQ?t=8m9s
  16. You know a couple of well placed rounds would have stopped all that before he/she got into the building in the first place. Its a wonder someone didn't get run over.
  17. What's the slotted holder for on the LH side? Beautiful work
  18. +10 Use STS hulls and Claybuster CB0175-12 pink wads
  19. PBT, Is this a stock Rossi 92? Stock 92s are know to deform the case mouth of 44-40s during the ejection process. Easy way to test for this is to remove the ejector from the bolt and then insert an empty case into the chamber by hand. Close the bolt and then open it. It will extract the case but not eject it. You can remove the ejector without removing the bolt by removing the pin holding the bolt to the lever. The ejector can be removed from the bolt and then the pin can be reinserted to allow the action to cycle. This damage is one of the reasons NKJ developed his spring kit. This will also let you see any case deformation caused by a piece of case lodged in the chamber by eliminating the ejector as a source of damage.
