  1. When I was a student I would have been happy to protest most things if a cute girl asked me or if it involved skipping class.
  2. The only time I have seen that there was a very minor imperfection on the inside end of the barrel.
  3. Itchy Trigger


    Order: Rifle (10) / Pistol (10) / Shotgun (6+) Scenario -) Position 02 (Doorway): Shoot Rifle out of Doorway -) Position 03 (Window): Shoot Pistol -) Position 03 (Window): Shoot Shotgun Targets - 2 -) Position 01 (Window): Shoot Shotgun Targets - 4 Action -) Shooter Shoots Rifle at Position 02, -) Shooter runs to Position 03 and Shoots Shotgun at both Targets, EARNING A PENALTY, -) Shooter runs to Position 01 and Shoots 2 Shotgun Targets, -) While shooter is shucking and reloading the TO realizes he hasn't fired his pistols and tells the shooter to put down shotgun and go back to Position 03 and shoot the pistols. Shooter follows TO instructions even though he believed he should have been allowed to finish shooting the last two shotgun targets and then return to Position 03 to shoot his pistols. It is better to follow the TO instructions when at the firing line when it would not a dangerous action and discuss the specifics later away from the firing line. -) Shooter places shotgun on table and runs to Position 03 and shoot pistols. -) Shooter runs back to Position 01 and shoots last two shotgun targets. Discussion -) Shooter immediately discusses with an RO2 instructor (BIPN) at unloading table who believe that if shooter had not gone back to Position 03 when TO told him, he would have also earned a spirit of the game penalty. -) Shooter believe that he is "entitled" to a reshoot ONLY because the TO increased his overall time by 10+ seconds. It is not the TO's responsibility to stop him from firing in the incorrect order and earning a P, but he should have been allowed to continue shooting in the incorrect order once he started. Shooter decided NOT TO request a reshoot because he didn't feel he should be "rewarded" with a lower time when he was the one that made the first mistake and the TO was making an "honest" attempt to assist the shooter. IMHO -) This is not close to a "Spirit of the Game" issue, he should have been allowed to finish his current action and then rectify the situation. He was not dumping on a target or doing anything other than the stage directions, he was just doing it in a time inefficient manner and earning a P in the process. -) TO could have corrected shooter before shooting at the shotgun targets (great TO), inform the shooter before leaving Position 03 to shoot pistols (Good TO and Shooter has earned P), inform the shooter after shooting shotgun at Position 01 that he hadn't fired his Pistols (Good TO and Shooter earned P and extra exercise), or said nothing since it is the shooter's responsibility (Shooter earned a P and 10 misses). -) But, by changing the shooters actions and increasing his time, the shooter should have been allowed a reshoot if they desired. -) Surprisingly, there were several shooters that almost made the same mistake and picked up their shotgun before firing pistols, but TO's were then prepared and able to rectify. Thoughts?
  4. Anyone have pictures of the targets and stage descriptions?
  5. As hard as Totes is on his gun, he should get a full backup rifle for either him and GV. Of course, it isn't my money.
  6. I remember that formula from Physics, but I also remember the well-known "Taylor Knock Out Index" which was developed by John Taylor, an extremely experienced African hunter. His formula was based on killing thousands of large game animals with nearly any caliber you can imagine. His formula also adjusted for the bullet diameter and referred to it as the "power yardstick" for African rifles. The Taylor KO factor multiplies bullet weight (grains) by muzzle velocity (feet per second) by bullet diameter (inches) and then divides the product by 7,000, converting the value from grains to pounds and giving a numerical value from 0 to ~150 for normal hunting cartridges. Basically, it says that everything else being equal, a bigger impact circle equals a better knockdown capability! I agree with that, but I have never understood why he didn't take into account the exponentiality of the velocity!
  7. A standing static target was left to aim out, but they shots did not have to actually "hit" it, just be fired at it. It is the yellow MU (Make Up) target on the stage 9 schematic.
  8. Sheesh Abilene, what did you do, remove every third frame to decrease the viewing time like they do on TV.
  9. Buy a piece of crap (non-CAS) Miroku '73 and steal the sear from it! Still a bit to replace a small part but might be cheaper than having a custom piece machined.
  10. Interesting, the MAX JAIL TIME is only 18 months IF someone deviates "from known standards, practice and protocol directly caused the fatal death of Hutchins," ... and "By not receiving the required training on firearms, not checking the firearm with the armorer, letting the armorer leave the firearms in the church without being present, deviating from the practice of only accepting the firearm from the armorer, not dealing with the safety complaints on set and/or making sure safety meetings were held, putting his finger on the trigger of a real firearm when a replica or rubber gun should have been used, pointing the firearms at Hutchins and Souza, and the overall handling of the firearms in a negligent manner, Baldwin acted with willful disregard for the safety of others and in a manner which endangered other people, specifically Hutchins and Souza."

  12. Wow, several liberal groups have filed briefs (agreeing with 2nd Amendment advocates) that the latest New York gun control law requiring concealed carry permit applicants to register their social media accounts is unconstitutional (even if they claim the 1st instead of the 2nd). Kathy Hochul's 'overbroad' New York gun law panned by liberals opposing social media registration (msn.com)
  13. I'll take Blue striped Hamilton Dry Goods Pants (NEW- worn once)-38x32- $30.00 shipped.. Scully Shirt- L- $25.00
  14. Deaf people in the next county can hear El Catorce's Gritos!
  15. There is no problem with an FFL (on a National level) accepting a gun from an individual (either in state or not) BUT ........ there are several additional rules and legal hurdles that they have to make sure that they jump through. With today's ATF (one strike you and you are out) looking for ways to remove FFL's from the food chain to "protect Americans" most FFL's do not want to accept the risks. I ask at every LGS that I go to and basically the bigger they are they less likely that they will be willing to do it. I have found a couple and I try to move as much of my business as I can to them.
  16. Not at a price point of $1,500
  17. You can print this out if desired, 51 pages. Shooters Handbook Vers 27.4 - 2023 FINAL.pdf (sassnet.com)
  18. I used to only use CC for the convenience and the ability to put off paying for 45 days (when interest actually paid something). Now I use almost exclusively cash because I am tired of ALL of my data being sold!
  19. That was quick, I guess I am dead.
  20. Something that hasn't been mentioned much, was that the AD Dave Halls who pled guilty and is getting no jail time, was already fired from another film set (Freedom’s Path) for a NEGLIGENT discharge which injured a crew member. Once is bad, but twice???? 'Rust' assistant director Dave Halls fired from past gig over another 'unexpected' gun discharge (nypost.com)
  21. Baldwin is double screwed. As the Producer he changed the standard definition of the Armorer job to include handling many props that were not firearms as well. This is extremely unusual, and most armorers would have (and I believe that at least one did) refused the job. She took the job because she was young, naive, and wanted to get some credentials for future jobs. Many of the crew had already walked off the job due to "unsafe working conditions," and that was because of decisions made by the producers. She was busy handling other props instead of the firearm at the time of the discharge. I don't know if she even knew that the gun would be used for rehearsal at that time, however nobody else should have had access to the gun if she wasn't there to unsecure it and then observe the handling of the firearm until it was safely secured again.
  22. Not some type, almost for sure "ANTI-GUN" related community service. I can see the TV promos now, "Woe is me, see how evil guns can hurt law-abiding gentlemen like me." The only reason this has not already been decided (even if not announced) is because it was in New Mexico and not California!
