  1. I shot at that range in the 80's, when the area around it was developing rapidly. Eventually, some yuppies house got perforated and the club installed huge cement culverts on the rifle range so you could not physically elevate the rifle enough to go over the backstop. Lighting off a .300 Win Mag in a pipe is quite the experience.
  2. Founder's will also be hosting the 2018 New Mexico Sporting Clays Championship in September. Seeing that the 2017 shoot in Lincoln Co. last weekend drew 197 shooters, and lodging was 1 hour away, this should be another big plus for us.
  3. Clocked it this morning, 9.2 miles from the parking lot to the main gate at Founder's.
  4. A knock off was made by the Japanese, in 7.7mm, which was their nomenclature for the .303 British.
  5. You should see Sporting Clays shooters, guys with $20K guns obsessing over 5ยข pieces of plastic. I think they'd trade their firstborns for a bag of once fired 28 or .410 AA's.
  6. I still fast forward past the part in "The Professionals" where Lee Marvin wrist snaps a Colt New Service cylinder shut. Guns are just props and dramatic vehicles for Hollywood.
  7. Seems these things are popular to the Zombie apocalypse crowd and millennial trench coat Nagant cultists. Whatever floats your boat. You can shorten up your regular shotgun by clamping the butt stock under your arm. Easier to control, and harder for the bad guy to get away from you if they grab the barrel.
  8. Have shot both 200 (Ultramax) and 250 (Black Hills), and also some Schofield 230 (Ultramax) and at Cowboy ranges could not tell any difference. This is out of a Cowboy Limited with the 24" barrel. I really ought to put them on paper at 100 yards.
  9. Thing I can't stand about social media are college classmates looking you up and saying "I haven't seen you in 30 years!" They never seem to understand there's a reason for that.
  10. I'd buy every one I could find at that price. Screaming deal.
  11. I've got one in .45 Colt and have shot it successfully out to about 230 yards with 250 gr. bullets. How much terminal mojo the bullet had I can't say. It's not a particularly flat shooter, I had to hold over about the same amount as .45-70 cowboy loads.
  12. Fellow "Toughskin" hater here, and those iron on patches when the knees went out. Remember trying to convince my Mom that Converse All Stars really were worth $5.95.
  13. Men working on roof and most of the windows are in. Pretty big crew there today.
