  1. I use them purely for practice to see how fast I can go. It’s the only practice I get where someone else is running the timer so I have to wait for their pause between stand by and the beep. Also dealing mentally with the things that can get in your head, like the shooter in front of you blowing up on the stage or other distractions that can cause you to lose your focus. For me the game is probably 85-90% mental. Keeping my head in the game while distractions are going on around me is the hardest thing for me. I can’t get that kind of practice from just running drills on my own. This doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy seeing my friends while I’m there also.
  2. About 3 years ago I started working on loading over the top. Got it down to consistently under 2 seconds. Fastest I ever did was 1.2 but that was about to “run off the rails”. Still I was very happy with the way it turned out. Still shooting the same rifle but earlier this year I started having problems with the round not wanting to go in the chamber and standing on end. Rifle runs flawlessly other than it won’t load smoothly over the top any more so to avoid problems I’ve went back to loading through the gate. Not near as fast for me.
  3. Just talked to altamont and they are indeed making slim panel grips again. I ordered two pair. They gave me a shipping time of 2-3 weeks
  4. Congratulations to Missouri Lefty on being overall winner at Black Gold with a total 10 stage match time of just over 135 seconds. Outstanding performance!!
  5. Sgt., I have been on the waiting list for a couple pair from Altamont for over a year. They haven’t made a run of them for quite a while and said they would notify me when they made some more. Your probably better off looking into Eagle gunfighter series.
  6. Wellll, Happy Birthday Titus and safe travels. See ya in a couple days
  7. I had to go back to my original post to see what this thread was about. EOT stages and thanking those responsible for them. Since then we have gone to comparing sass to several other professional sports, shotgun targets favoring double shooters, discussing short stroked and raced up guns, talking about pizza, and now about Bud using borrowed guns to win an EOT. If our sights wander off target as much as our posts wander off topic it’s no wonder we only had 29 clean shooters this year at EOT. LOL
  8. Well said Stan. I had a great time also.
  9. I would like to thank Lassiter, Deuce, and all those involved with what I feel were the best EOT stages I have seen to date. Challenging but easy enough to shoot clean if you didn’t let your wheels run off the rail( of which I was one of the latter). I felt it was what a world championship match should look like.
  10. Thanks all! Randy, always a pleasure and an honor to bump heads with you. That’s twice now that only a couple seconds have separated us. I live for the fun and friendly competition. Faygo, I’m still legally a Michigan resident but Pinky and I should make the permanent move to Kentucky within the next couple weeks.
  11. Pinky and I send prayers and condolences to family. Rest In Peace Pardner
  12. Been shooting a pair of first gen Bisleys for well over a decade. Never a hiccup. Also thousands of dry fires through them.
