  1. Probably best to just ship it to me in AZ where neither of us will have to worry about it
  2. April 22-25, 2020 http://cowboy.okcgunclub.org/LR/Land Run 2020/index.html Edit: Damn -- I just discovered this conflicts with the Four Corners Regional. I guess I won't make it back to OK for this one.
  3. Soooo, I didn't read the entire thread, but isn't it always time for a 1911? OK, OK -- I know the intent was to offer alternatives for folks who can't comfortably run wheel guns, but I can't help but smile when I pick up any 1911. They just feel right. Similarly, it's always a good idea to shoot Wild Bunch, and it may make you a better cowboy shooter. In fact, 4 out of 5 doctors recommend all cowboy shooters at least try Wild Bunch (the other one is a liberal). You certainly don't need to worry about power factor at most monthly matches. So, load up some light loads, grab that SINGLE ACTION semi-auto 1911, and see if you don't smile a lot.
  4. Norm Purcella at Quality Cast Bullets has a few color choices (including green), but the lightest .358 bullet he has is 125gn. They are all hi-tek coated. https://quality-cast.com/pistol-bullets/ I use Norm's bullets for all my BAMM loads, and I really like them. I get my pistol bullets from another company with fewer color choices.
  5. Well, the trigger I received was blued, but it fits fine. It needs to be profiled a bit as it's quite a bit heavier break than the old trigger. Although I ordered two from cylinder-slide.com, they only had one. They did refer me back again to Jack First, so if you need one, that's the place to go. No love on any stainless parts, though.
  6. Edit: Thanks for the suggestions. I think I found a couple at an online retailer, but there wasn't a lot of information on them, so we'll see what arrives. I'll post an update once I receive them. ___________________________________ I managed to break the trigger in one of my ROAs, and I'm having trouble finding a replacement. Ruger referred me to Jack First, and they only have blued Old Model Single Six triggers that supposedly fit, but nothing in stainless. The trigger in my other ROA also looks like the tip is cracked, but that one is still functioning -- any advice on why this might be happening would be helpful too. Thanks in advance.
  7. I had to move some things around, so the links Go West and Boulder Canyon Bob posted are now broken, please use this link: http://www.bordertowncas.com/2019.php
  8. The round count for the Plainsman match is now available: 40 pistol 25 rifle 16+ shotgun
  9. All you Bordertown Wild Bunch shooters, plan to come check out the Bolt Action Military Match after we finish WB on the 2nd day. The course of fire will require 15 rounds, will be shot standing/unsupported, and includes targets between 75-150yds. Also, here's the round count for the 8-stage WBAS match: 196 Pistol 54 Rifle 36 Shotgun
  10. Bordertown is just around the corner! Check out the Bordertown website for full update details. I've also attached the update letter that will be going out to our registered shooters soon. ShooterUpdate_BT19.pdf Here are the highlights: - Wild Bunch (Oct 22-23) -- There are a few spots left for this 8-stage match, and you can shoot one or both days. - BAMM -- We'll be hosting our first-ever Bolt-Action Military Match after the WB match finishes on Oct 23rd. Check the website for info. - Doily Gang Ladies Transitions Clinic - Offered on Oct 23rd, but seats are limited. See the website for full details. - Help! -- The Bordertown board could use a few extra hands around the range throughout the week. If you have some time and can lend a hand, we'd love the help. - Costume Contest -- Costumes will be judged by a secret panel while shooters are shooting the 2nd day of the main match (between 10am-2pm). - Pocket Pistol and Derringer Event -- Just-for-fun side event before Main Match awards on Sunday. - Pre-Bordertown matches around Southern AZ -- Check out our October calendar for places to shoot before and after Bordertown. - Tombstone Thunder (Nov 2-3) -- Check out OPSA website for info on this black powder preferred two-day match following Bordertown. The registered shooter lists for Main Match and WBAS have also been updated on the website. Remember, no category changes are allowed after September 30th, and you can still register for any of the side events (Wild Bunch, Plainsman, Blast, Speed, Long Range) even if you are not registered for the Main Match. See you soon!
  11. +1 Huh, I guess I do agree with Phantom on at least one thing OP: I, too, only intended to load .38s at first, so I picked up a new Dillon SDB. I loaded about 20k rounds on it -- it's a great machine. Then, I won a 650 at the Four Corners Regional, and it's incredible. I really wish I would have just started with the 650 (now 750). I'm now loading .38, .45ACP, .45 Colt, and .30-06 on the 650. If you can afford it, and you're confident you'll need lots of ammo, go with a new 750.
  12. They look great -- I'll drop a money order in the mail today. Thanks again!
  13. Hey Rum Crook, if the tan and blue shirts look as good as the red, I'll take em. Please PM me with payment instructions.
  14. Man, this is a great video. I was already excited for our monthly match coming up this weekend, but now I gotta figure out how to make it 3 more days without a mag change. Thank you for using the platform to spread the good word about WBAS. I really want to shoot gunfighter at a monthly WB match. With the rule changes this year, I think we can do it safely by staging both pistols on a table with a loaded mag inserted and the slide locked back. To keep things simple, no reloads. Just pick them up, drop both slides, fire them dry, then re-stage. The main problem is correcting malfunctions, but if one gun does malfunction, you can fire the other dry, set it down, then fix the malfunction. If they both malfunction, it'd be tough to avoid a stage DQ. Maybe I'll see if my local club will let me try it this weekend -- whaddaya say, @LostVaquero?
  15. Do you mean 9.2gn for shotshells and 1.8-1.9gn for pistols? I might take a look at this powder too. I'm about out of Titegroup, and this stuff is cheap.
