Noz

Wow! I just woke up

Recommended Posts

That's not fair.

 

I am having to go up there cold.

Have not been able to shoot in I believe 3 weeks now.

And won't be able to until I show up there.

 

So you all take it easy on us poor ole Texans.

 

 

I can't speak for others; but, I promise to go easy on you Al. And, there won't be any star targets, so you shouldn't have too much of a problem anyhow. :lol:

Star Targets :o Now you went and done gave me nightmares. :unsure:

 

It's not the star that gets me. It's ALL them HOLES AROUND IT. :wacko::blink:

 

IF we changed it to who ever can shoot through the holes.

And NOT hit any of the target.

I would be World Champ. :rolleyes:

Cause if there is a hole in a target.

I can find it. :huh:

I know of the targets of which you speak.

 

I shot them on a monthly match and had four misses with one pistol, all of which went through the holes.

I'll bet you loved the 'don't mess with Texas' stage at CaC last year then! I was amazed how many people missed the hole in the target!

We don't have a Texas star yet, but a buffalo swinger has been added since last year that some of you might not have seen. He's a big one, but surprisingly agile sometimes. Or so I delude myself when I miss!

We're not talking Texas Star Slim. They're easy - as are swingers. These are 20x20 plates with a star cut out - 5 nice pie shaped holes - that seem to draw lead through them. Even my laser guided BP bullets seem to be drawn to the non-steel portion of the targets. They are diabolical. It's a wonder my alter ego didn' think them up.

I have not had a chance to measure the bloody things, but I'd bet the holes are at least 20% of the target area, so you gotta figure one miss per cylinder full if you are not taking a refined sight picture...

 

I agree, they are truly diabolical. Even when you are not having mechanical difficulties!

Whoa, sounds like a real conundrum! If you try to hit the holes, you hit steel and if you try to hit steel, you hit the hole?

I and a few other shooter 3 yrs ago at the Missouri State I believe would have had clean matchs if it wasn't for those damn stars. I was happy two years ago to see Missouri State got read of them. Of all targets I've shot in this sport I truley believe they are the ones I hate the most. I don't even mind the Texas Star. And J-Bar,Noz I did clear the star 3 weeks ago with the Ruger Old Army. I got lucky and all my caps went off that time. But I new I could do it I watched J-Bar a couple years ago do it.

Well. That sure seemed to be my problem when I went by to shoot at the SMR about a year or so ago.

Kept shooting at um. Thinking that them targets must be dead sounding targets. Because I did not hear

any dings when I was a shoot'n at um.

Found out when I got done. That it was because I seemed to be able to find all the holes. :wacko:

But it was fun anyway.

Then a big storm hit and we all scattered out of there. Think it saved me from embarrassing myself any farther. :blink::wacko:

We will be pulling into Cottonwood on the 9th also. But not sure about dinner.

After getting up early and driving 9-10 hours. Getting set up. The wife may just

want to crash for the night. So will have to play that one by ear.

 

 

I guess you know about the MC Rally happening at the Cottonwood that weekend also.

She warned us about it when we called to book our spot.

But told her it would not be a problem for us.

Anvil,

You can practice all the way here. You know how to pretend don't you. Shoot all out of state license plates(using whatever state you are in as "in state"). We all know you will shoot well.

See everyone Friday morning. :rolleyes:

Fingers, thought I better update you on refreshment supply(s). Not only will you, Lady Fingers, Curley Duke, Dainty Dasy, Doc Hurd and I be at Super 8 with Aussie's. Add: MO Prairie Dog, Coyte Kate, Sassie Starhurst, Cole Starhurst, and Col. Moore. It might be very interesting at our Motel. No repeats of New Year's Eve, Titus won't be there to get the party rollin. I know Lady Fingers and I will miss Fannie Kicker's classes. We still have not taken our test to see how much we learned!

I saw Mohawk in the lobby of the Super 8 'bout an hour ago. Me and Hatfield are staying here too.

 

They say the range won't open 'til 8:00 a.m. Friday. I'd sure like ta' get in an' get set up before then. Shootin' and vending makes for a hectic day or four!! :lol:
