He's been cowboy shooting longer than I have.

He started when he was 5 years old.

In my mind it feels like I am going that fast.

 

Why does the timer show 25 seconds when I’m done??

Jerry M. has a great amount of followers in Youtube, making a race with Matt Black will be amazing to watch and outstanding promo for the sport and firearms in general.

Allow me to link which bring me to SASS, beside my firearms attraction since  Lucas McCain (got my confession there)

Btw.

Since I have the opportunity here I would like to say thank to the maker, for an energetic, funny and family oriented short film.

There must be a speed limit somewhere but Matt Black keeps lowering it.

 

I enjoyed the video, the young man is amazing.

Thank you very much

Thank you so much my friend! I showed this to Dylan and he had a smile on his face from ear to ear. He’s always looked up to you and those kind words mean the world to him. 
bless you my brother.

How does one sense an ammo issue (in time) at that speed? Hopefully a squib would tie up the action.

When someone reaches the level or speed and proficiency that some of our Top Shooters have acquired

thru practice and more practice, trust me..... they know immediately with something isn't right.

 

An old Nash Rambler might get out of timing and nobody, even the driver, might not realize it.

But let a true race car get out of timing or a tire out of balance and the driver will know immediately.

 

Thats about how it is with our top shooters.   They use good ammo, firearms, etc.....and I

would count it an honor to TO any of them.

 

P.S. - ya don't become a champion with squibs or inconsistent ammo.

I thought a heard someone say he uses full powed springs.  It would be interesting to know how his guns are configured.

I seem to recall from an earlier thread that Dylan's guns (pistols at least) are stock.  

 

What's real scary is that he's still young and he's going to get even better.  This time next year will we be looking at 5 or less seconds?

This is going to get very fun to watch but very hard to compete against.

He uses the heaviest springs shotgun boogie has. He does not however have short strokes or any other mods to his pistols. He does use gunfighter grips and a little wider front sight and that’s it. It’s as close to stock as you’ll find on the range for the most part.

Thanks for the info.   Just my thoughts,  but I'm thinking folks go past the point of sensibility for light springs.

Howdy Warden.

Some folks might..... but I would venture to say that your top shooters don't.

They like a fast hammer.....matter of fact, to reach some of their speeds, a fast and sure hammer is required.

 

There are some folks who relate a smooth pistol or rifle (or even a shotgun) as a firearm with

light springs.   Quite the contrary with our top shooters.

 

If I ain't mistaken (and I've mentioned this many times on the wire), the Traditional and the GF

Cowboy World Records were set with either stock springs or slightly heavier springs.

That hammer has to fall fast and fall with positive ignition force.

AND, none of the pistols used were short stroked.

 

I ain't surprised that Matt runs those pistols.

Widder,

I'm not surprised either. There are guns I call campfire guns and then there are guns I call competition guns. 

Campfire guns = hey, look how smooth this one feels while showing it off around the campfire and not competing. The problem is a slow hammer hammer fall sets a speed limit.

Competition gun = hey, look how this one functions when it counts. 

'IMO, no one will every compete competitively with a campfire gun."

 

Seems like a lot of the newer shooters are convinced they need a campfire gun when a competition gun that goes bang every time with a quick hammer fall is what's really needed. Been there done that myself. :-)

Lighter main spring means slower hammer drop and that’s a factor for Matt Black’s style of shooting.

Longhunter and Widder  are 100% correct with what they are saying. We learned the hard way that if it feels too good to be true it is. Also there is the dependability factor. We want our stuff to work so nothing we shoot is taken to the edge. 
The bottom line is you can’t buy a win which is what I feel many try to do with having the best of the best gimmicks out there and believe me there are plenty. That being said there are good solid mods that work and continue to do so.

These Cimarron Eleminator 8s came "tuned" with the wispy spring on the right. The Wolff reduced power hammer spring is in the middle. The left spring is a standard Pietta spring.  I put the heavier Pietta springs in them a couple of weeks ago.

Amazing. So smooth!

 

Can you give a breakdown on the splits in the run?

1st rifle

10th rifle

1st pistol

5th pistol

6th pistol

10th pistol

1st shotgun

2nd 

3rd

4th shotgun

 

Is there anything left?

Ringer,

you should be able to ENLARGE the screen and manuever the timer correctly to let you see

those splits.

 

Basically, 8 seconds split 24 times ain't much, no matter how you look at it..... :o

With my video editor and my videos, I can measure time down to a frame - 1/30th a second. If I shot in high speed, I could measure down to 1/60th a second.  There are ways of embedding a timer display in the video - provided you use an editor that has that function.  I did one of my stage performances and broke down splits.  More than half my time was in transitions.   Matt and Missouri Lefty can shoot a stage while I'm making a transition!

I wish I knew how to slo-mo that sequence and study his technique(like it would do me any good:P:P). It goes so fast I my old eyes can't follow the individual shots.

Well except for the 4 shotgun rounds.

Astounded , Rex :D

If you hunt for the video on YouTube you can slow it down to 1/4th speed.  Three dots in upper right take you to a menu that you can change settings.
