  1. Some days I check the wire just to see what Phantom is up to!
  2. +1 for wolf gun springs. 14/30 in new model vaqueros. Fires ever brand of primers I have tried.
  3. Go to Starline. The best brass avail!able
  4. Try Chey cast Bullets. I think there the best. Great customer service and prices
  5. It’s understandable just disappointing we all seem to have a fondness of reading the printed version over a digital version. I think it’s just more comforting to read and what most of us have grown up with. Remember you can print it out at home and staple it together. That may not be exactly the same but business is business and they have to do what they have to do to stay in business.
  6. Scaring the crap out of yuppies My daughter works in a very high end architectural firm as a office manager. She explained to me that the company asked her to find a community service project for the office to do this fall. My daughter came up with a bunch of different options. The company rejected All of the options because they were not related to the field in which they deal with i.e. construction. She did some more research and came up with an opportunity to help out at a urban farm, you know one of those places that they have in the inner city to try and help city folks understand what really happens in the country on a real farm. They said yes that would be fine. They started questioning her at the office on what kind of items that they would be doing as their work projects. She said she wasn’t sure but since it was a farm even though urban and it’s fall time she thought that there would be weeds to pull up gardens to clean out some fertilizing possibly stocking feed and hay and straw for the winter for the animals things like that. you know real farm things. Being the Ornery smart ass that I am I said you should tell them that you’re going to be inseminating cattle. In fact I suggested that she talk to friends of ours who are cattle ranchers and stop by and pick up a pair of those shoulderlength plastic gloves that they use in that process. So this morning in the office some of the people cornered her trying to find out what they were going to do how they needed to be dressed all of those kinds of things,without looking up from her computer while typing a letter she’s quite simply said we’re going to be inseminating Cattle and advise them to dress appropriately! She said at that time you could’ve heard a pin drop inside of the office the people just looked at her with this confused ,scared and slightly nauseous look on their face and asked what did you say. She said you know impregnating cattle artificial insemination rubber gloves up to your shoulder that kind of thing. She said she thought they were going to throw up on her desk then she started laughing. They all thought that it was a funny joke. She didn’t even get fired and no one called HR to make a complaint even though she did partially say the word semen as in insemination in an office setting. I guess were still safe here in this part of our world. The good thing is that the cows at the ranch feel totally safe after they realized that they would not have architects elbow deep in their business trying to re-design cow sphincters to be more Aesthetically pleasing-you know architects can be!
  7. It sounds like what most of you are saying is a positive action to keep from having any issues. From what I see most people that are having sticking issues with their shotgun are using non-brass based cheap shotgun shells. A lot of them have very minimal chamfering or polishing done to their chambers. I think the combination of those things cause a lot of issues. One of the biggest issues that I see is that people have a very weak or poor method of shucking their hulls. A lot of people do the tip the barrel up and shake them out. Or they open the gun and start plucking out them with their fingers. Your fastest shooters have a very forceful movement of the gun to force the shell out. Either pushing it forward or pulling it back and snapping the shells out with inertia.
  8. Welcome. Go to YouTube and look at the Longhunter videos. Great videos really good information and he explains it very well. I enjoy watching them I’ve seen some of them 10 or 15 times.

  10. I have a set of new model vaqueros. I put super Blackhawk hammers in them 14 pound wolf springs and 30 ounce trigger spring. I have shot them for one and a half years and had zero failure to fire on Winchester CCI Remington and federal primers. That combo has worked great for me
  11. I agree that it would be nice to have some information about how the side matches are to be run. Especially for new shooters it can be intimidating enough to try something new. Just a quick rundown on what’s going to happen would be very helpful. And I do like the idea of posting the rules at each side match event that way it can help people get prepared mentally for what’s about to happen. And can also clear up confusion during disagreements
  12. I’ve only been in the game 2 1/2 years. But from my experiences my two favorite are The return of the Buffalo at Briggsdale county shootists. And He’ll on wheels, with Border Vigilantes’s . Two great clubs, Two great shoots that draw all the great people from near and far!
  13. Because it’s fun. Sometimes you have to do things differently than the same old 10 pistol 20 rifle 2+ shotgun. very simple very easy just use common sense five in your first pistol four in your second pistol count to nine simple math. we should all be able to do it. Oh yeah Phantom you don’t need to chime in I took care of it. Ha Ha.
