  1. Prayers on the way from Pinky and I. We have shot with her and her husband several times in the past. Very nice people. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
  2. I’ve had a couple sets of elk horn grips for several years. They were always a little blocky for my grip. I filed and sanded them to where the panels are nice and slim and fit the gun and my hands well. In the process I had to remove almost all of the bark and the grips look more like bone now than stag. They are really white. What’s the best recommendation for darkening them a bit. I’ve heard soaking them in tea would work.
  3. In my early days I preferred the pistol grip only because it was offered with checkered grips and forearms. Now you can also get the straight stock rifle checkered from the manufacturer. I shoot both equally well but do notice that the pistol grip rifles tend to be slightly heavier.
  4. Sent our apps in today along with apps for the Kentucky state. Now just hope winter rolls by fast.
  5. Pinky and I sent in our apps today. Wanted to make sure to get a camping spot.
  6. I don’t see what the problem is. It’s a simple matter to lever the rifle closed and lower the hammer before you begin loading. If a lightning style rifle, load, then work the slide forward and drop the hammer. The last thing I want as a TO is to have a shooter walking toward me with a cocked rifle. If your excuse is being distracted at the loading table and forgetting to lower the hammer, then shame on you. As a shooter you should be as focused on loading and unloading your firearms as you are in shooting.
  7. TM if that’s $20 shipped for all 4 j-frame speed loaders I will take them. Doc
  8. I’m your Huckleberry!
  9. MGM, you are the BBQ master. Can’t wait to try some of that
  10. Nice looking set of guns. Wish you would have left the bisley hammers in them. I would have jumped on them like a fat kid on a cupcake. Lol
  11. Just got home from CAC. As always Pinky and I had a great time. We would like to thank the Bar 3 for welcoming us as family once again. I could never name all those involved in putting on the match. T-Bone has a crew of volunteers second to none. We have attended the match 7-8 times now and every year we see improvements that have been made either to the stages or the grounds to please the attendees and make their time there more enjoyable. If you’ve never been there you are missing out on one of the best events held anywhere for cowboy shooters. Please try to put it on your schedule. We will see ya there next year.
  12. I’d like to publicly thank Lefty for taking the time at the end of side match day and showing me some things I could do to keep my rifle running through the main match at CAC this week. I’d been having some problems with it but thanks to his advise I was able to run 24 clean stages with it this weekend. My hats off to you Lefty!!
  13. Congratulations Billy. Been fun shooting with you this summer, even if you do think I’m a pain
  14. Seen that bunch before. They are pretty rowdy lol. Started getting the camper loaded up today. Wouldn’t want to miss the show
  15. 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.
  16. Been shooting a pair of first gen Bisleys for well over a decade. Never a hiccup. Also thousands of dry fires through them.
