Dr. O. R. Vet's Achievements



  1. Well I definitely enjoyed the "So easy even a caveman can do it" commercials.
  2. Last year I started shooting IDPA at our local Rod and Gun club. IDPA is a sport for self defense in which you use modern semi auto pistols and concealment for your firearm. For me, it, it is a way to improve my self defense skills. If I am going to carry a firearm for self defense, I need to practice the skills I need to do that. Frankly, IDPA shows me how bad a shot I am--and how slow I am. In IDPA your targets are cardboard cutouts in roughly the shape of the human body. Square head and the upper body. SMALL center areas are marked off to show center mass and then outer limits of the "body". Hit outside the center areas and you are `down a point'--a second is added to your time. Hit outside the body--add 5 seconds. More points down if you don't follow tactical priority--closest and most 'dangerous first. It is good practice for possible real life scenarios. But I love Cowboy! The dressing up, the people--and once in a great while I shoot a clean match! Dr. O. R. Vet
  3. I live in Sedalia MO and shoot IDPA with a guy that works there. From what he says, he gets some nice employee benefits.
  4. I've bought a couple of vehicles over the years--one not that long ago--from a buy-here-pay-here lot. Both times I didn't pay any interest--but the total was based on the asking price, not a nogotiated price. And the terms were not bad either. Hopefully, your daughter found one of those lots to buy from.
  5. This fall one of the members of the gun club in Higgensville MO brought a gatlin gun that was chambered in 45LC. It had a 30 round magazine but he only loaded 10 at a time. He had it at the last stage of our last CAS match of the season. Each one got to shoot it as the last "gun" of the last stage. Doesn't take long to run through 10 shots. And pretty hard to hit a regular sized steel target at 40 yds. I don't know if it was 3/4 size or full size but the 2 wheels were over 3 ft high iirc.
  6. I've been watching quite a few of The History Guy's videos. He has some really interesting topics and he really gets excited talking about some of his subjects. This particular one was really interesting--probably because I like trains so much. I have been going out to the NAMM show (National Association of Music Merchants) by train almost every year for more than 15 years. Sedalia MO to Kansas City, Kansas City to Anaheim CA and come back 8-10 days later.
  7. Pat Riot--that's a small price to pay for freedom.
  8. I just get really ticked off when an inanimate object does not cooperate and do what I want it to do. Especially if gravity is involved. Dr. O. R.
