  1. $110 gets you all the side matches, BBQ, match entry, and shooting in the shade! The gift bag when you check in is pretty good also.
  2. Its because you are shooting those Chinese short barrel tiny 12 gauge. All American Winchester original 10 gauge with brass shells and fully stuffed with black powder. Look how puny that 12 gauge looks at the top. (That's an original 10 gauge Remington in the middle). Accept the challenge.
  3. Taylor's Firearms Open House is 2 days Friday and Saturday. You could stop by Friday morning on the way in to the range. Side matches start at noon at Singing Hills Ranch.

  5. BTT. I have a 24" and it works great. Others more knowledgeable than me say it matches a gen 3 short stroke right out of the box. The inside toggles are finely machined and clean.
  6. If you already have non BP lubed bullets, you should run APP. That is a substitute compatible with smokeless lube bullets; no flame but boom and smoke. If you want to purchase and use Black powder, purchase Missouri bullet Company BP lubed bullets for your revolver. Shooting in a rifle? Purchase big lube bullets.
  7. Pyrodex....Pyrodoesn't... Just load 2.2 cc Goex 2F under that 200 gr bullet for real fire, smoke, and a manly boom. And no running around with your skirts up panicking about corrosion.
  8. Star line brass and reload BP or if you don't plan on much shooting https://www.buffaloarms.com/32-s-w-short-black-powder-ammo-311-90-grain-lead-fn-box-of-50-amobp32sws
  9. Possible to share your methods for a successful introduction to so many?
  10. The best hand held deprimer. https://harveydeprimer.com/
  11. Remington Rolling Block model 1 45-70 made pre 1890, 1887 10 gauge 30" made 1892, Remington 1882 10 gauge 32" made 1883, Winchester 97 12 gauge 30" made 1906, Hopkins and Allen hammerless safety police revolver 3" 32 S&W made 1901, American Gun Co (Crescent Arms model O) 12 gauge 30" made 1900. KMart Boito SxS 12 gauge now 20" (otherwise it weighed 15 lbs) made 1975, Pair of Ruger OMV Bisleys made 1995. Like to keep those old ones belching flames and smoke a few times a month.
  12. Don't be driving to Alexandria. Stay to the west and head to Winchester straight up I-81 to get to Taylors. Exit 317. Open House is same weekend as the nearby West Virginia State Shoot. Appalachian Showdown. September 25-27 http://www.wvcass.org/showdown/
  13. Had a great shoot yesterday at Singing Hills Ranch Largent WV. 15 shooters, used 2 timers, 2 score keepers, shot just 5 stages instead of 6, no lunch like we normally do halfway through. Brass pickup with tools, 2 people at loading, one at unloading. It was a cool calm cloudy day in the mountains. I even think 2 of the stages were good enough for Appalachian Showdown September 25-27. We are back in business. Taylors open house is the same weekend, stop by there on the way in Friday and shoot your new toy Saturday. http://www.wvcass.org/showdown/
  14. Ironwood here (we crossed the state line to drink on Silver Street in Hurley with the cheddarheads) with the 4 year stop in Houghton.
  15. If you’re shooting a black powder category when do you ever see your sights? I think the question should be do they have a good enough memory to remember the stage to shoot it blind and can they crouch and get back up from the crouch without using their hands to look under the smoke?
  16. When I shoot smokeless...8 gr unique under a 200 gr rnfp for both rifle and OMV revolvers.
  17. Shoot it! I have put more rounds through my Miroku in 2 years than my Marlin 336 30-30 in 40 years. Soft Brinnel 12 bullets won't wear out a steel rifled barrel. Remember Ar's shoot fmj.
  18. Any $300 semi auto shotgun with a selection of chokes will be sufficient to start. I start people out with a Hatsan Escort i picked up on sale under $300. Skeet will use cylinder, Trap mod or full. A field shotgun will work great for skeet, the addition of the $25 Beretta gel pad will raise her angle when shooting the rising trap target. And if she doesnt take to the sport, you will have a great dove gun.
  19. No name (Hatsan?)Turkish semi auto 12 for doves. Black plastic and lightweight handles any cheap Wally World shell. Ithaca 37 12 for ducks. Bottom ejects shells into boat or blind. No cleanup. Marlin 336 30-30 for deer, just got my high school dream rifle, an old un fired Winchester M70 Lightweight Carbine 30-06 eager to try this fall. Stevens SxS 20 old from 40’s with Tenite stock for bunnys. BTW got a few whitetail with the cowboy 92 and 73 45 colt.
  20. I just noticed another benefit. 6’ social distance in that photo!
  21. Remington gun clubs should be plentiful at your local trap range. One and done. After you use up your APP you will migrate to BP. APP different sound, plenty of smoke, no flame. It’s a good intro.
  22. Must obviously be a troll that lives under the bridge. Those of us from the state of Superior are hardier stock. It acts as an ice reducer in our blood when we run out of the sauna into the creek.
  23. Saw your reaction St Louis Suomi...Hancock was a half mile further. Sisu
  24. When I shoot a 12 ga sxs I found a $99 Boito KMart that slicked up well, cutting the barrels, lightening springs, refinishing wood, etc. Might be worthwhile to find an older used orphan that needs a home. Practicing your smithing skills on that will give you a lot of confidence at little to no risk.
