  1. I sent my application in today. See you all at Ky state. I have Marlin camp 9 for the Pro Steel match. I will be coming sometime on Wednesday if nothing changes. Maddog
  2. I got Friday off work so I mailed my Application Today. See you all Friday morning
  3. I just called and got a room for Friday and Saturday nights. You can sign up for the main Match Friday or before 8:30 Saturday morning. if you think you want to stay at the hotel, you best call for a reservation as the hotel is getting full from the way the lady at the desk talked. I am planning on being there by 6-6:30 on Friday so I see you all then. Maddog McCoy
  4. I don't remember where I got some of it, But I remember it was really good. I think my Grandparents got some of it, they farmed and was over 65 at the time they were giving it away.
  5. Last time I checked, Sparta had not completed a long range bay that would go 75 to 100 yard. The bays are good (12) but not all setup for cowboy any more. It is for rent by the state of Illinois for ANYBODY willing to pay the fee. It use to be about $3-$4 per shooter per day and the camping is a separate fee. If you contact the range, they would work with you to put on the event and you would have to talk to the local clubs about help, I am a member of the one at Sparta but it would take more than just the group there. I would like to know if B-Western would be included as I got rid of all my cowboy stuff that would rate good enough for classic cowboy. I would love to shoot a match like this. If you need some help. Feel free to contact me. Maddog McCoy
  6. No............ had to go back and what the video to see what you were talking about. I saw the cat jump the first time I watched but missed the guy hitting it with the rake. I would have shot the snake since I am a firm believer that only good snake is a dead one. Everybody has something that they dislike with a passion, mine is snakes. The ones that crawl on the ground and the 2 legged ones................
  7. AND THEY DID NOT COOK IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. These guys put on a great match. I won the Iowa challenge one year, it was called low on ammo and my partner had ran out of ammo and I had to throw him a reload from about 25 ft away and he had to load it and hit the last target to stop the clock. I think it was 21 pistol, twenty rifle and 12 shotgun. We shot it clean and he caught the reload which was how we won. The thing is I met him at that match and had loaned him my pocket pistol and ammo and he won the side match for pocket pistol and I came in second. Funny thing is that was the only match I ever saw him at and have not seen him since. It was a great weekend.
  9. I think I have shot this match twice? I will add it to the list for shooting in April. Currently Looking to try and make Iron Cowboy, Alabama state and the Kentucky state. I guess I had better go load more ammo. Maddog McCoy
  10. I will be at the KY state shoot, I probably be alone as my son will be graduating high school this year sometime in May and I am not sure when he will be done. He has already told me to sign us both up for Black Gold as he does not want to miss it in July. See you all soon, Maddog McCoy

  12. Last year was not good, and I am glad to see it gone. My dad said he felt this would not be a good year for the family in January of 2018, and he was right. In January, my grandmother died and I lost my job, had to sell almost everything in Alabama and move what was left into a storage unit and moved in Grandma empty trailer in Illinois. Found a job and moved to Kentucky, still missing a lot of stuff I had to dump so I could move. One of my nieces her husband left her, refuses to pay child support on the 2 boys (1 1/2 and 3 years old), she moved into grandma's trailer. One niece totaled her car, my dad's suburban, and died just before Thanksgiving in her sleep at 30 years old from a migraine headache. She left a 10 year old daughter that goes to her ex-husband that lives 200 miles from the our family. ( lots of problems with that and my sister is a mess as she moved back to Illinois to help raise her granddaughter in July and now she will be gone). My divorce from my wife was finalized after being married 32 years and together 38 years. These are the highlights, I have forgotten some of the details. My family will not miss 2018 being over. I wish you'll well and hope this year is better than the last one.
  13. I have gotten a Nickel Stoger in 12ga for the Plainsmatch and Sidekick is picking up 3 black powder revolvers for me and 12 ga reloader at EOT that I got here on the wire. Since I have my trapdoor, I have the guns now for Plainsman match and if I can figure out how to make the ammo, I am good to go. I am begining to think I will see if I can load some black for my regular match rifle that I may shoot Frontiersman. I will figure it out in the couple weeks.
  14. When I go in to a restaurant I tell them I want a corner in the back by the wall. They look at me funny and will try to seat me in the middle of the room in a crowd. Usually I end up telling them that I don't hear well and I want a quiet place so I can talk to the person I am with. Most of the time it works. I was in a restaurant with my Mom and Dad a while back and they seated us under a TV that was blasting and a bunch that was watching a game on it. The girl came up and asked for our order and my dad and I just looked at her and never heard a word she said. She looked kinda irritated and repeated herself and my mom spoke up and to her neither of us could hear her over the noise. She got them to turn the tv down and talked louder when she came back. The manager came over an offered a different table but there was no anywhere in the place that was any better. The hard part for me was she had a voice that blended into the noise that was hard to pick out. Most of the time I am ok but the ringing in my ears get really loud sometimes and other times it is quieter. It started when I was about 14 and a bicycle tire blew out when I was airing it up with the air compressor. Shooting and working in factory years without hearing protection has not helped.

  15. Thanks everybody. I usually buy shotgun shells as work interferes with my time to get stuff done. I use cheap promotional loads for local matches, and trap, and AA or STS for big matches. I will probably just order 2 or 3 boxes to start, then if I find I need more, I have several 100 AA hulls or I will get some brass hulls and try making some. Maddog McCoy
  16. Does anybody know where I can buy some 20ga Black powder shells? I will be shooting black powder some this year and I only have 20ga shotguns. I am looking for shells with black powder or Black powder substitute. I don't reload shotgun shells and would need like 6-10 boxes. :angry: Maddog McCoy :angry:
  17. Twenty Dollars Apiece On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed. This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed. Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined. Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank. She explained that for the more than three decades she had 'charged' him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments. Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, 'If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!' That's when she shot him. You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut.
  18. Let's add an Indian Category !!! (or Native American). All targets must be shot with a Bow and Arrow and any Knock targets must be knocked down with a tomahawk. You must dress period correct (historically accurate)for the category ( Dress code to be debated at a later date.) The category can be split in to modern (Compound Bows)and Traditional(standard bows). All arrows must be completely made of wood to prevent sparks for using metal or flint arrowheads. The timer stops when it is hit with the tomahawk at the end of the shooting string. Maddog McCoy Note: Pass me some popcorn but don't tell anybody as it is not listed on my diet...............
  19. Call SnS Bullet, they are just north of you. I use their 44 200 grain RNFP and they feed fine in all my 44's. If the carrier is a V shape, Change it to one that is a half moon shape, these work better in a 44. Also, change the loading gate with a new one and see if that helps. After that, call Widder and send it to him. Maddog Mccoy
  20. I get the joke!!!! (after I googled DD-214)
  21. I got one at Wal-Mart after Christmas for $7.50. They were 19.99, then marked down to 15, then $7.50. At one store, the guy told me they stole more of them than they sold. Check in Automotive and electronics, I got my 2 weeks ago when they marked them down and one store had like 40 of them left over. It on the counter at home if you want me to send you a picture of the box or the UPC Code. I have not got around to hooking it up yet. Maddog McCoy
