  1. Glad to hear you're on the mend.
  2. I've only joined this sport this year so my perspective may be a little off. All the matches that I've been to it seems that there is a small percentage that shoot a "clean" match (no "P's" no misses). To me that says that even with close targets folks still miss or shoot out of sequence. Now if the targets were moved further or made smaller more shooters would not get clean matches. As far as time, it's relative, so with close targets if the stage is shot in 25 seconds and with far/small targets it's shot in 40 seconds, but everyone's time is slower than to me it's a perception issue. But as I said there'd be less clean matches and folks would be saying they shoot better close up. But don't take my word for it, I'm new and they just about use a calendar to time me. I have fun and try to better my time each match so one day I can be an average shooter.
  3. Yep, that's some big nuts! But you may want to check on 'em there green . Seriously, let them dry out and then you can use them to smoke meat on the grill.
  4. How about Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans? Or the Tchoutacabouffa River in Mississippi?
  5. How does Wordy Words work? I can't seem to figure out a pattern.
  6. I agree with all the good things said about TB. Plus those little "o's" are tasty in milk
  7. There are 2 things I don't mind spending a little extra on, buying things Made in the USA and supporting the Mom and Pop stores near me. To me if you don't support them they won't be there for you.
  8. If ya need another wagon let me know I can get ya one and a mule skinner to go with it. Seems like you like putting powder on a fire and watching everyone git scared.
  9. If you have shot coming out the top get a small pinch of paper towel and put it on top of the shot before crimping. I use 3/4 to 7/8 oz of shot and never met a target that wouldn't go down.
  10. If you think this is topic has a lot of opinions wait until you ask a powder question . Just kidding the pards here all have their opinions based on what works for them and rightly so. You have to find what works for you, either the hard way by trial and error, or the easy way, asking questions and having a mentor. Either way it's a fun hobby but the best advice I've read so far is get a reloading book (Lyman's 50th) and read. You're going to see at the front of the book they talk about what you'll need at a minimum and what's nice to have, the re-loader is only one piece. Finding a place to work and put everything, getting all the equipment, setting up your dies all take time and thought. Take your time, check and re-check everything while your loading and start out with a couple of small batches to see what you like.
  11. Widder looks like you got wars brewin' all the way around. I'm gettin' the feeling that this is going to be a daisy.
  12. ^^^ other than shipping it's a good price
  13. It won't stop anything. Bad people are going to do bad things no matter what. At some level I can understand the open carry might scare some uninformed people, but how can not selling ammo do any good? On the plus side maybe they'll have a good sale.
  14. I'm not going to slam any makes, I'll just say that I found that I like Dillon the best, if you can afford them. If you're only going to be doing straight walled cases then a Dillon Square Deal B is an easy to learn progressive machine and Dillon machines have a lifetime warranty. Look around you can probably pick up a good used one at a reasonable price. Or better yet post a WTB on this forum.
  15. I'm sure most of you have seen this already but I thought that I'd post it just in case. Uniqutek has .45 Colt and 12ga practice shells that use .22 caliber ammo here's the link: Cowboy Action Products I'm not endorsing this product, I've never used it but thought someone might be interested.
  16. @Crusty Knees do a little research on the type of windex you use windex with vinegar may not be good for your guns' finish. Here are 2 recipes you can also use: Mule Snot" Cleaner: One part Isopropal alcohol One part Hydrogen peroxide One part Murphy's oil soap "Moose Milk" Stabilizer/Lubricant: 80% water.... 20% Balistol Hope this helps
