  1. And that, as they say, is how it's done. Congratulations! That was a lot of work to set up, but I'm sure you all had fun doing it. Awesome.

  3. There is a monster taking shape in the Illinois General Assembly called the "Aurora Gun Omnibus Pro-Gun Safety" bill being floated around. Pro-Gun Safety bill. Who could argue with a title like that? When you create something you can pretty much call it whatever you want. Remember when the USSR controlled East Germany? They called it the German Democratic Republic. Same here. Good thing we have that Firearm Owner's Identification Card (FOID), huh? Some of the bill's bonus points: 1. Increase FOID card fee from $10 for ten years to $50 for five years. That's a 1000% fee hike. 2. Require local law enforcement to get a warrant to seize FOID card and firearms from the household of anyone who has failed to comply with a revocation order. 3.Failure to comply with a FOID revocation order becomes a felony. 4. ISP (Illinois State Police can revoke or deny a FOID card for anyone charged with making a "terrorist threat or material support for terrorism (not defined). I guess if you shout "kill the ump" at a ball game, they can come after you. 5. Mandatory fingerprinting for FOID and CCL holders. That's an extra $100 easy. Times 2.5 million gun owners in Illinois, that's a new $250,000,000.00 tax on your Second Amendment rights. 6. FOID application will be a mandatory "in-person" process. If you like the long lines in the Driver's License/SOS buildings, you will love this one. 7.Failure to call in a private gun sale is a felony. Currently NO penalty for this. These are just some of the ideas going around the legislature. They have not, as of this writing, been introduced in bill form. Please forward to all SASS clubs and any others who will benefit from this information. If there are any other SASS clubs that want to be added to my email list, please let me know. Thank you.
  4. That's a good idea. I actually do that for Shortcake and I for our everyday carry autos. On the job we called it the "ball and dummy" drill. You would pair up, and load your partner's magazine with a dummy or two in any order, and then insert the mag into his/her pistol. Keeps you on your toes.
  5. Add this to the reading list. I picked this up from one of my kid's football coaches. A good read. https://www.amazon.com/Mind-Gym-Athletes-Guide-Excellence/dp/0071395970/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=174229554949&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9022074&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=3216778836190705329&hvtargid=aud-649564993678%3Akwd-7262061691&keywords=the+mind+gym+book&qid=1553213223&s=gateway&sr=8-1&tag=googhydr-20
  6. If Gillibrand thought boiling live puppies would get her votes and contributions, she'd be filling a pot with water now.
  7. This will be our third year going! Great people, great vendors, and some can do alterations while you wait!
  8. +100 How easy it would have been to just walk away? That is a great example of mental conditioning.

  10. Do it. Last year was our first year on the road. We met a ton of great people at these matches, where the "cowboy" way really is the way things work. Yes you will make some mistakes. And you will see more experienced shooters make mistakes. And both of you will share a laugh about those mistakes later. And at the end of the match you will wonder where the time had gone. Assassin had a good point. Don't change your strategy right before or during the match. If you see a shooter run a stage with way that seems better than your way (the way you have done it before) stick to YOUR way. Try out the other ways when you get home. Might find out your original one works better for you. Best wishes for a fun year!
  11. That is a brilliant deduction, sir.
  12. Always knew John Wesley Hardin had a screw loose somewhere! sorry! could not resist.
  13. I started telling them I was dead and I was the attorney going over final arrangements with the widow. They were falling all over themselves apologizing for bothering me. Shortcake said that was terrible making them feel bad. I said they called me. so too bad. Now they have these goofy recordings that respond to your voice. Or a hang up after two rings. We have three sons that travel pretty regular for work and business, so I kinda have to answer just to be sure. The middle boy went on Southeast Asia trip a couple of years ago. This goofy number comes up, so I answer the phone. It's him in Bangkok. He asked if I could wire him a couple of hundred for a Monkey Shot. I asked what kind of a moron goes into a bar and orders a shot of booze before checking the price? Especially in another country? He then explained they were rafting down a river. When they came ashore, a group of monkeys approached looking for food, as tourists fed them so they could get pictures. When he stepped backwards to take a picture he stepped on a monkey's tail and it bit his leg. Had he said "rabies shot" first, I would not have made the tavern connection. I sent the money and he got the "monkey shot." One more reason why my hair is grey.
