  1. I just put on my fire retardant underwear, so I'm ready to be flamed. We ignore/ modify the dress rules because it get hot, what rule Is next. How about dropping the penalties for misses and a procedural because they decrease our chances of winning. No MS for an empty hull left in your shotgun/rifle/pistol cause an empty can't hurt anyone. (End of sarcasm) My point is we follow all the rules, not just the we like or agree with.
  2. I have the Balloon on my 2020 F250. It's my third one, all have been trouble free and work well. I have no experience with the others bit would highly recommend the Balloon.

  10. My friend uses #10 Remington caps as do I. Before I changed the nipples I never had a problem with caps falling off. I had shortened the old nipples a bit so that when seated the caps where we're on a fatter section of the nipples. I never had time to do these as I got the nipples the day before the match. I use a short plastic rod to set the caps. I do occasionally have a spent cap fall off,usually between my hand and the grip,not a fun experience.
  11. He also pointed out that a lot of conversion cylinder must be taken out to be loaded so what is the difference?
  12. He doesn't like using a capper because of sometime they fall off, his reason is he can squeeze the caps and put them on with confidence that they will stay on. I did for one match by hand with the cylinder in the gun and it was a pain. And that was on new nipples, the match before I had at least one cap per gun come off per stage with the new nipples. I had replaced them because the other were becoming deformed. They had been on the cylinders for about 12 years
  13. This was brought up in a discussion with a friend recently and I could not give him an answer that I knew was absolutely correct. I have looked through the Shooters Handbook and RO1 mamual,did it very quickly at work so I may have missed the answer to the following question. Is a shooter allowed to remove the charged cylinders from his C&B revolver at the loading table to cap them by hand the put them back into the revolver?
