  1. Some days you win, some days you lose, and other days you can't win for losing. You know you shot the only good primer out of the batch, the rest will be squibs at a big match that you waited months to shoot at and do well.
  2. I think you mean: Dry white toast (1st order) 4 whole fried chickens and a coke. (2nd order)
  3. Show up and have fun. Even if you only fire one shot and take misses for the rest, you got to shoot the match. Be well. Maddog
  4. Well, I got a job agian after being off work and hiding on my farm most of last year. I scheduled my vacation for Black Gold this week ( I get 3 weeks plus 5 personal days during the first year) and my son told me he is ready to go. I got hotel reservations yesterday in Manchester and will send the applications later in the week. Maddog McCoy and Just Jason will be there.
  5. I believe that a lot of the hand sanitizer is made from grain alcohol. (or it was when nobody could get anything else.) If you mix it with some Coca Cola you may be able to sanitize your insides with it. I would make a long post about masks and my general hate of them, but i am too tired and really don't give a $^% about them. The one's required a work usually give me a sore throat by the end of my shift most days. I only wear it there since they pay me.
  6. I scored 7 boxes of 12ga LNLR AA shotgun shells today. It was last of all of their ammo except for some odd's and ends ( 28 ga shells, 410s and some 12 ga I never heard.) Regular price, 7.87 a box with Illinois 9.5% sales tax.
  7. I will be signing up next week. I was 2 hours from there for a long time and now about 5 hours or less away. I think the last time I was there I was shooting a monthly match for practice before I left for Winter Range. Guess I better get busy, Got to find a camper and fix one of the golf carts I bought last year. See you all soon. Maddog McCoy
  8. The Range in Sparta Illinois has 1000 campsites, 12 Berms and Is big enough for the shoot. June in Southern Illinois can be hot or comfortable, just never can tell. However, it is owned by the State of Illinois and the state would cancel the shoot the day before it started if they felt that way. You can not trust the governor, he changes the rules on a daily basis. Where ever it is, I plan on going this year and hopefully it is closer to Illinois that New Mexico and somewhere the weather is nice and cool in June.
  9. I use 3 grains of trail Boss in my 44 Russians with 165 grain bullets.
  10. 8.5 grains of Win 231 was my standard load for 44 mag for years. In my Marlin 1894 with 20 inch JM barrel rifle, it performed well for 100+ yards. I used them in my 7.5 inch barreled revolver, worked well was a bit on the hotter side. I am now loading 5.5 grains of Trail Boss for a lighter cowboy load with a 200 grain bullet. It seems to work fairly well, In my Marlin rifle, need to do some more testing . 3.0 grains of trail Boss with a 160 grain bullet is my handgun cowboy load, I use a Russian or Special case.
  11. Well, I just drive to the other side of the farm and use the one in my dad's garage. On a good day, I also get the wood I need to cut out of his stack of lumber.
  12. I picked up Federal large primers at a local shop for 42/ 1000 and Winchester large pistol at 52/1000. He had a large supple of Federal Match grade large primers for 85/1000. he stated he was not sure when he would get small primers, About$50 or less per 1000 would be my buy price. I still have a good supply of large and small for now. I sold a 6000 small primers to a couple cowboys that were out, I charged them $10/ 1000 over what I paid for them and I doubt i can replace them for the price I gave them . I always try to write what I paid for components on the box so I know what I have investe
  13. If you go to Indiana or Missouri or any other state bordering Illinois and buy a big ticket item, you have to pay Illinois sales taxes on it. Cars, appliances, and anything they can figure out you bought. There is a place on the Illinois state income tax for for you to fill in your out of state purchases to pay the tax. The tax rate when i bought my last car in Indiana while living in Illinois was based on the county where you lived. I think it was 5% in Indiana and 8% where i lived in Illinois and the dealer selling the car added it to the purchase. Illinois has be trying to collect sale
  14. I hate my smartphone. i had a phone with a little slide out keyboard for texting and a button for send and one for receive. Never needed more than that as I would use my computer for anything else.
  15. If you can not find a use for it, ship it to me. I would use it for trap when I am not using my 20ga coach gun.
  16. That's not a big deal. When I worked on the south side of Chicago, they were shooting all the time on public property and everywhere else.
  17. I want to use my 20ga Marlin pump shotgun. I want to use my 16 ga 97. Wait, can't use either one as I sold them when I could not use them for everything. I want to convert my 16ga 97 to 20 ga and use it. I want Modern Category Back. Only allow Marlins in B-western---Wait that is rule, Don't allow 1873's in B-Western-- that is a rule too... I got it: Don't change the rifle requirements in B-western. Anybody got any cheese to go with my whine, I like Co-Jack sticks dipped in Prairie Farms French Onion Dip.
  18. I saw a brand new one in the box setup for 38/357 in a local gun shop for $375.00 plus taxes. I would say that you were on target for a used one.
  19. No, it was at a brand new Hospital in Bolingbrook ,IL. At the time I had the surgery, I had watched them build it and it had been open maybe 6 months and I figured since it was new, it would be the best place to go. My Doc was doing surgery there and 3 other places. I ended up in the Joliet hospital on IV antibiotics for 3 days, I was in the the hospital for the surgery just one day..I guess new is not always clean and better. This was about 12 years ago. If I had been in Fairfield at that time, they would have sent me to Evansville, IN or St Louis, MO as they don't do that type o
  20. I thought lengthening one's neck was done with a rope and a tall tree. Hopefully, that is not the the procedure they are trying out on you. Make sure to avoid those nasty germs at the hospital. I got a staff infection in my back when I had back surgery. Get well quick and be safe.
  21. His message kinda reminds me of jobs I have had in the past. i worked for Tyson at a chicken processing plant. We processed about 3,000,000 chickens a week and our sister plant down the road processed about 3,500,000 chickens a week. PETA and other groups were always complaining about how we treated the birds and posting videos and sending hate mail. These same people complain to no end when there is not any food on the shelves to buy at the store. I never realized just how much chicken was processed in a week by food companies to feed people. I think there are 12 chicken process p
  22. I have not been able to find any small primers. I went to Evansville, In and one shop had large pistol primers and did not have any small pistol primers.. The Federal Large Magnum primers were $42.38 ( w/tax @06.9%=45.30) and Large Winchester at $52.06 (w/tax 55.65) per 1000. I got the last box of Federals and I could have bought all the Winchester I wanted but not sure how much more he had. He had CCI large pistol for $55.98 per 1000. He also had bunch Federal Gold Match Large primers at just over $80.00 per 1000. (When he said $80 I quit listening). I don't load shotgun so I did not ask abou
  23. When I was married, I had an FFL and did gun shows. Anything new I carried home from the gun show was just inventory to resell. After I filled the second safe and she did the taxes and the books for my FFl, I got the look when she figured out how much was personal inventory and stuff for resale. I am single now so I don't get that look from anybody except the barn cat and he just wants fed every time I walk out to the truck.
