  1. LoL; Dealing with some issues has kept me away for two years now. but I am slowly climbing back in. It is a pleasure to hear from one of the finer gentlemen in the game. Cheers, FJT
  2. As the author and gentleman mentioned in his post are two of the better '97 shooters in the game, you are well advised to pay heed. Remember; none of the guns we use were ever intended to be shot as fast, hard, or often as CAS shooters do, and there is no better example of this than the '97. I will weigh in on the "Chinese vs. American steel" issue. If you have an early C or D model, the American steel manufactured at that time was using 1800's technology. That is virtually stirring molten steel with a stick, and hoping for the best. Where the Chinese fall down is in tolerances and assembly. For this reason, Jim Bowie doesn't like to work on Chinese guns. As they were made across literally generations, and tolerances have been mix-and-matched to meet convenience, Boogie doesn't like to work on American ones. You pays your money... My advice; have more than one with you. And stay away from C model forends. Cheers, FJT
  3. Create a stage protocol, and follow it, the same way, every time you shoot. Each stage has its own challenges, and you don't want to introduce variables, just before you engage the stage. Know the stage before you shoot it; if you're thinking about anything but the sights, you're thinking about the wrong thing. From the loading table to the unloading table is YOUR time. Be as fun and helpful as you want for the rest of the match, but between the lines, gently but firmly insist on no distractions. Remember, this is a game. Keep it light, and you'll avoid throwing a wet blanket over yours, and your posse's enjoyment. Cheers, FJT
  4. Sorry for those of you who are distracted, while listening to this show. As an aside, Hud and I encourage those of you who are shooting the Classic Cowboy or Senior Categories to do ALL your reloading, during the show.
  5. You might find this Sunday's show (11/17) interesting as well; Hud has lined up Patrick Wayne as a guest. Should be lots of stories about his time in Hollywood, his movie roles, and, of course, (hat over heart) his ol' man... Cheers, FJT
  6. Thank you for listening in, Rye; Thanks for calling in Yul, and thanks for the welcome, Reb; miss you all, too! (As Reb about the axe handle story, some day, if you don't know it. It's one of my favorites!) ;-) Goody steered you right; and we are on every Sunday morning. Wasn't Misty great, on the air? A more pleasant and articulate proponent of the game can hardly be imagined. We hope to have her back on the air, at some point in the future. Jeff /Hud and I intend to be doing this for a long time, and with your support, we will be. Once Hud gets his hooks into an idea, good things tend to happen. Stay tuned! Cheers to all, and again, thanks for the support, FJT
  7. As you may know, Hud and yours truly, FJT, are hosting a Sunday morning, firearms friendly radio talk in southern California, on KABC, AM 790. It is a good opportunity to spread the word on SASS, CAS, and the positive aspects of firearms ownership in general, to a broad public. That this show exists at all in today's political climate is a win; that it is broadcast from Los Angeles, deep behind enemy lines, is off the charts! We are delighted to announce that this Sunday morning, November 3, we will have Misty Moonshine on as a guest for a segment or two. Her presence, as a positive, articulate, and influential role model in the firearms world can hardly be overstated. If you'd like to call in, maybe have a question or two about SASS, CAS, or anything else firearms related, feel free to join us on the air! The show is broadcast live, and available over the internet, but is also available as a podcast. If you'd like to call in, the number for KABC 790 is 1 (800) 222-5222. (Actually, that's the number even if you DON'T feel like calling in... ;-)) It's a fast-paced, kicked-back show, and we think most shooters would enjoy it. Here's a link to what we do. The Gunslinger Hour The Gunslinger Hour Sundays at 7am My name is Jeff Taverner. I am owner operator of Gunslingers Gun Shop and Auctions. Open ... The show is Sunday morning at 7:00 a.m. our time (when Californians are driving to the range for matches.) ;-) Cheers, FJT
  8. Joyeux Noël et bonne année, Curly! Looking forward to seeing you in 2012!
