  1. She’s a beauty alright, just wish I wasn’t on a cash diet
  2. Nothing too interesting an Uberti NMA short barrel in stainless and a .31 caliber 5 shot pocket pistol.
  3. Congrats to Rowdy Bob, and I’ve never seen a bigger trophy in CAS.
  4. Folks I saw this rifle first hand at Comin’ at Cha this week and it is one beautiful gun! You also won’t find a more honest pard to deal with than SD.
  5. I guess we all have our own comfort level, I don’t like trying to remove caps, I’m always worried about an AD. I still think it’s best to either go from the ULT directly back to the line or being escorted back to the LT.
  6. You must have the “Luck of the Irish”
  7. See that’s what I love an open discussion and to get different perspectives
  8. You bring out a good point if it’s easy enough to take the cylinders out then a designated (by the TO) person could bring the cylinders to the LT. Then the shooter could load the rifle and put the cylinders back in. Of course only the shooter knows how difficult it is to remove their cylinders and it may not be practical for everyone.
  9. I had a ‘73 have an OBD last year, it put a chunk of brass into the palm of my hand and I was thankful that’s all it did. The internals of the ‘60 Henry, ‘66 Yellowboy and ‘73 are pretty much the same so an OBD can happen with any of them and as others have said it all has to do with the timing of your finger and the trigger.
  10. I’m still going with @Tennessee Tombstone on this one, it sounds reasonable to me to have the shooter go back to the LT with someone if the shooter can’t go directly from the ULT back to start the stage.
  11. I’ve got an Uberti NMA stainless steel sheriff’s model, never fired. Also a Pietta 1863 5 shot percussion pocket pistol.
  12. You’re right, and it’s a good habit to get into. The first time as I noted was completely my fault and that’s why I called the penalty on myself. The questionable scenario really only applies to folks shooting Frontiersman since other pistols can be unloaded safely at the ULT. So, Mr. Blade how do you handle the situation if it ever comes up?
  13. I agree on the “2 person rule” when the shooter goes from the ULT to the LT. IMHO the guns are safer in the holsters, and the shooter is remaining in control of their weapon. I’m pretty sure that this situation doesn’t happen very often but it does raise a question when it happens.
  14. We all know the rule IRT leaving the ULT with a loaded gun gets you a SDQ, I understand the rule and agree with it. But every once and a while there can be a situation that leaves you (at least me) scratching your head, case in point. Earlier this year at a state match I’m shooting Frontiersman and the stage instructions had that the shooter start with the rifle, pistols were holstered. I got up to the line, buzzer goes off and the first rifle round got hung up on the carrier. Since no round had gone down range I went to the ULT to clear it. I made the mistake of leaving the ULT to get a screwdriver with my loaded pistols still holstered, I called a SDQ on myself and told Posse Marshal, never did figure out why the round got hung up, everything including the round in question ran just fine after that. Couple of weeks ago at a local match I got into a similar situation except this time I had left a snap cap in the rifle and had to go to the ULT to clear it, this time I left my loaded C&B pistols at the table when I went to the gun cart, learned my lesson the first time. Once I got the snap cap out of the rifle I asked the ULT officer to bring my loaded revolvers back to the LT. This got me to thinking why is someone walking with loaded guns in hand safer then the shooter walking with the same loaded revolvers holstered? And before anyone jumps in and says that the revolvers should have been unloaded at the ULT remember that they are C&B guns and it’s a lot more dangerous to de-cap them. So, the question is how would you and your club handle that situation?
  15. @Misty Moonshine if you read this you’ve seen that there is some interest in these. I for one would be willing to preorder, if others also do this you should be able to get a price point and order quantity.
  16. Maybe this will generate enough interest (like the Patriot Badge) that SASS will revive it and offer it again.
  17. Been looking forward to LR for 2 years. In 2020 I was there but 2 days before the match my house got hit by a hurricane and I had to leave before I sent a round down range.
  18. You’re right, lynchin is too good for a child rapist! I’m thinking more of a good skinnin knife and a good day or two.
  19. My luck it’ll be a paper plate
  20. Thanks everyone! I’m going to try Mark’s first, after reading what’s been said I don’t want a round that’s going to hurt me almost as much as the target. BTW, the reason I was asking this question is because of an email that I got from Land Run. Their long range side match is at a distance of 300 meters, which is about 328 yards. Hell, I don’t know if I can even see a target with iron sights at that distance. @La Sombra, @Sedalia Dave, @Crazy Gun Barney, SASS #2428, @Cholla, @Texas Red, @C N Dubble SASS#38003, @The Rainmaker, SASS #11631, @Bailey Creek,5759
