  1. I knew them up to 25x25 in engineering college, it came in handy on some quiz questions, but haven’t tested myself in years. I’ll get back to you, especially if I do well!
  2. Missouri River is flooding out of it’s banks tonight at Jeff City. Dang. As if the tornado wasn’t enough.
  3. Natural Selection applies to humans as well as other living things. Unfortunately it’s often the kids who pay the price.
  4. I wish more stages would allow the shooter to start himself; timer on the table, or in the TO’s hand, shooter’s finger on the button. The “TO” could pick up the timer and follow the shooter when he moves to a new position. I don’t like being touched/tapped/whatever if I am having trouble hearing the beep. Why not let me start myself? Is it really that important to start with my hands on my hat?
  5. Putting some sort of spacer between the base of the hammer spring and the frame can make a big difference using the original factory spring. A washer or little piece of leather with a hole for the screw to go through can be dramatic. Remember the hammer not only pops the cap but also holds the cap on the nipple when the powder ignites. Going light on the hammer spring can allow more blowback and cap jams unless you have a cap rake on the gun.
  6. Yeah I knew that. I shouldn’t post late at night! Thanks.
  7. I don't shoot gunfighter style very often, but I think you would be allowed to stage OR holster one revolver with the hammer down on a fired chamber, clear the jam (use one hand to rotate the cylinder while cocking the hammer with the other, and continue, either by completing the stage Double Duelist Style, or by re-drawing the holstered revolver and continuing to alternate shots until the revolvers are empty. I wait for more knowledgable folks (Pale Wolf Brunnelle) to confirm or correct me.
  8. Brisket + beer + 6 hours on low in the Crockpot = delicious. Thanks to all, especially my evil twin.
  9. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas delivered this address at Hillsdale College on April 9, 2019. I learned a lot about Arlington and the Old Guard from this. With Memorial Day upon us, I thought some of you might find it interesting. https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/sacred-duty-soldiers-tour-arlington-national-cemetery/
  10. Warden Callaway is posting in other threads this morning, so he and Sawmill Mary are OK.
  11. No comments on trimming or crimping, just glad to see you on the Wire after last night’s storms. Back to the topic...
  12. Warden Callaway and his Owl Creek Raiders are close to Jeff City. Here’s hoping they are all OK and they check in soon.
  13. FR- You just got a compliment that the rest of us yearn for. Well done Grandpa!
