  1. Some of the stick figure maps are difficult to interpret. Many of the roads have poor signage. Some roads have impassable breaks meaning starting on one end will not lead to the other. I would offer a club list it all physical address (with comment regarding usage of navigation systems) stick figure map turn by turn list gps
  2. Yes, extremely shocking. Dillon sent me everything necessary immediately. Which was nice. It is interesting that this has happened enough to replace the 650 entirely with a new model. Lets see if Dillon makes me/us and offer I cannot refuse.
  3. Lets try another route. I will be at the western Regional next week in Chorro Valley. I have many more, probably 1,000+ will sell at 5 cents each. Let me know if interested. I will only bring them based on a commitment. -wylie
  4. 325 AA hulls Some shot once Some more than once Wet tumbled no media dried immediately 5 cents each = $16.25 + shipping of your choice
  5. Done, from a visitor point of view
  6. A while ago at a match I overheard a cowpoke mention "Postal Match". I was not able to inquire as to what it was. I suspect it is a match where everyone shoots the same stages and then "mail" in the scores. Is anyone doing this? Any experiences to share?
  7. Actually this is a great question. There are many variables in making decisions as to which matches to shoot. One of those could be the timing of the match directors posting the stages. So I might suspect that the sooner the better as far as the match directors are concerned.
  8. Marlin, Are they still shooting at their normal monthly schedule?
  9. Hey Fanner, DW and I just returned from a 2000 mile trip (spending close to $2,000) where we shot 32 stages over two weekends. It was very clear that on the second weekend the locals knew what to expect. If we were aware of the stages and typical setup we would have been as prepared as the locals. An additional issue are reactive targets, clays & knockdowns. On this last trip I brought ammo in preparation for pistol-rifle knockdowns (plates) and clay poppers & flyers. There were none, regardless if there are then the locals are prepared, putting visitors at a disadvantage. It is disheartening to hear the locals say "Yeah, we always do that stuff here" and I have never seen it. I would like your suggestion to go a step further. If a club is having a match where it is expected that non-local cowpokes will be willing to spend the time and funds to attend, then I would like the club to publish the stage descriptions along with approximate target size and distance.
  10. Video replay will solve all these problems just ask MLB, NFL & NBA
  11. Page 24 does not address the OP. The OP stated "none of the counters saw the procedurals " so it is fair to say procedural errors when they have clearly occurred does not apply This is a game. Meant to be fun. I for one would not like to have a TO assess a procedure (wrong target sequence ) where none of the spotters agree. IMHO any TO doing this is overstepping their role.
  12. Please help me find the place in the "rules" that contradicts page 21 Page 21 at the bottom, SHB - Chief Range Officer/Timer Operator (CRO/TO) – is the Chief Range Officer (CRO) for the stage and is in charge of the firing line as long as he/she is running the timer, and has the primary objective to safely assist the shooter through the course of fire. - Spotters/Counters – have the responsibility to count shots and misses and to verify targets were engaged in the correct order for the required number of shots.
  13. If the P has to do with target order then I would hope the TO would depend on the spotters (his/her job) for the final word. If three spotters all agree that the targets were hit in the proper order then the TO should not intervene with his/her opinion. If the P is about firearm order then I would hope the TO is aware (his/her job) and would be the final word. If the TO does not like the outcome of the spotters decision on target order, then the TO should ask for spotter relief.
  14. Page 21 at the bottom, SHB - Chief Range Officer/Timer Operator (CRO/TO) – is the Chief Range Officer (CRO) for the stage and is in charge of the firing line as long as he/she is running the timer, and has the primary objective to safely assist the shooter through the course of fire. - Spotters/Counters – have the responsibility to count shots and misses and to verify targets were engaged in the correct order for the required number of shots. It appears to me that the TO needs to be watching the shooter not the targets. It it the job of the spotters to watch for "p's".
  15. Just to put some math-physics into the reason. Each "crater" on a plate acts as an Parabolic reflector. Each crater has their own focal point. Given a shotgun target mage from softer steel, it could easily have thousands of parabolic reflectors. read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parabolic_reflector A shotgun target with many craters will reflect back many of the shot pellets, regardless of the angle of the plate or the carpet/hay bale/ground/height (math and physics). Given a target with many craters, some of them will reflect back the shot in many directions, meaning you cannot hide. The usage of carpet/hay bale/ground/height will benefit targets that are without "craters". Grind them smooth like new and splatter will be reduced.
  16. Tex, Another question. Can the PC be used as a master database and be used to "setup" an iPad for scoring a match, ie. the PC sends data to the iPad? -wylie
  17. Howdy, I remember in the early 1950's my dad showing me his "duty" revolver. A Hopkins and Allen "Saftey Police" 38 S&W. I had forgotten about this until a month ago when my brother mentioned finding this pistol. It was dilevered as a zip lock bag of parts. Well it is assembled except for the hammer spring. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Wylie
  18. I consider the pocket clean once the new primer is seated for 38spl 357mag 45acp 9mm 40s&w & 12ga I deprime and wet tumble for all other cases.
  19. I would like the 1897 winchester
