  1. We have begun the planning for our annual BEST SHOOT BY A DAM SITE. As always it will be a great traditional cowboy action fun filled match!

    Please make note the dates of April 2nd and 3rd as Dam site will happen in April this year instead of May.


    We will be getting the registration forms and information up on the website within the next month and will also post a reminder here when that happens. Keep checking the website for updates. 


    We are looking forward to seeing everyone out on the rage! 



  2. I don't run a Dillon Bull, but I can talk you through a few things this weekend and try to help. But to start, have you looked in the dies and ensured they are free of build up and debri?

    Will you be shooting this weekend?

  3. check for over rotation of the cylinder when cocking aggressively.  I just helped a fellow shooter with a new pietta having the same issues. If cocking the hammer say one handed, it cooked and caught the cylinder as it should. But using two hands with any speed, it would fire the first two rounds fine. but as the aggression for speed increased, the cylinder would over rotate and the firing pin would hit the rim of the casing or sometimes between casings. The timing of this new pistol was so close that the bolt would sometimes not catch the cylinder and the inertia would let the cylinder over rotate causing the same issue you are describing. If we would pull the hammer fast when testing, it would over rotate even on the first pull during testing. Under his normal shooting style it would not show up till the second or third round.

    hope this helps

  4. We have just 24 days left before the first round goes down range at Eldorado. The exitement is starting to build. Registrations are steadily rolling in and the list is growing. 

    The whos coming list is up to date for registrations we have recieved as to date, and have been updated on the website. I am hopeing to see some old friends, and make some new ones this year. The campground pot luck will give us all a chance to catch up and tell lies with each other. We have some fun and playfull stages planned out, a cowboy clays evening shoot and a full run of side matches that will be good for some freindly competition and hopefully a few smiles that we could all use. 

    Please send us you applications if you are planning to come and have not already done so.  Thank you. 


    Looking forward to seeing you all out on the range.

  5. Take your time Creeker. Your body will let you know. Listen to it (and Painted Lady, because she knows when you are not listening to it!)

    I was proud to see you out this morning and giving it a go. Stop beating your self up and let it all happen. I am pretty sure that everyone was just glad to see you out doing your best at what you enjoy doing. There is so much understanding amongst the cowboys everywhere I have ever shot. It is no different right here at home. Other than the lack of stamina that you were suffering from, You shot well and preformed well. As others have said here Creeker, set some goals. Next time try for three. We will all be there to help you through it so the next time you can stay for four! It will come back as long as you keep trying to reach for it. Recovering form these sorta things is like running a 5k marathon. You dont just wake up one morning and go run one. You have to run up and down the street a few times. Then work your way around the corner a few times, then then the block. From there you keep expanding. All the while, know when to quit and try again tomorrow. But the next time try for a few more houses than the last time. Believe me, it will come back. A positive mind is a powerfull tool!

    Anyhow, it was good to see you out, and I hope to see you out again soon.
