  2. I guess this is what confuses me, because that is the exact wording used in this rule (P 17-18). I understand that it is the live round in the chamber regardless of lever position that rules a SDQ. If it said "live round in the chamber" it would make more sense. Long guns will be emptied and discarded with their barrels pointed safely downrange. This condition may be corrected on the clock, prior to the next round being fired. If the long gun is not discarded empty prior to the next firearm being fired, only the shooter may return to open and/or clear the firearm at the end of the stage under the observation of the CRO/TO. Should an empty casing/hull be ejected or found in the action or chamber, or a live round on the carrier of an open action, a Minor Safety Violation (MSV) will be assessed. However, if the action is opened and a live/unfired round is ejected, a Stage DQ (SDQ) will be assessed for a long gun with a “live round under a cocked hammer having left the shooter’s hands”. In this case, there is no opportunity to correct this condition before firing the next firearm, as the penalty takes effect upon leaving the shooter’s hands.
  3. Is a detonator the same as or more than a blasting cap?
  4. Slick, I have a set of consecutively numbered, SASS Ruger Vaqueros, .357, Stainless, 5 1/2" barrels. No work done on these. Like new, only around 100 rounds thru each. My wife decided she didn't want to shoot after I bought these. (Pictures to follow) $1200.00, plus shipping.
  5. I'll pass on oatmeal pudding, when donuts are available.
  6. Yep, sits a horse like it was a natural thing to be a'doin'. You an always tell a cowboy by the way he acts around a horse.
  7. After living in the Peoples Republik of Kaleeforneeyah for the last 53 years, I know full well that any use of a firearm against an intruder will be a total life changing event. The State or the perp's family will destroy you with lawsuits and criminal charges. It will take everything you own, just to defend yourself. Knowing this, a split second decision is required to decide between financial ruin or being dead. Sometimes, it is hard to know which is worse. I want out of this God-forsaken 3rd world hell, but cannot (so far) find a place to go. The wife wants NV.. I just want OUT.
  8. I first met Judge many years ago in the early years of Possum Trot. In a sport full of great people, he was one of the best. He will be missed.
  9. Great catch. I'll update to reflect " .40 to .45 rimmed and .36 to .45 cap and ball" Thanks!
  10. In for a penny, in for a pound Grizz..........might as well get a fist of whisky!
  11. As we creep closer and closer to the match date here, was wondering if any local cowboys or cowgirls could provide some of us out-of-towners with some good local food places. I can Google touristy places but what are the BEST local joints in and around Cheyenne? Thanks!
  12. There is an exception for 56-60 in a rifle
  13. Everybody but Americans call it the Seven Years war. I never new that until I talking to an SAS officer one time.
  14. At the Michigan State match each year they have a fun evening of "shotgun games" on the trap range. One year I picked up "my" 30" 97 from the rack only to notice it wasn't my gun. About half of us were shooting 97's. I started looking around and spotted another shooter with what I was sure was my shotgun. He initially assured me that it was his gun but, upon closer inspection, admitted he had the wrong gun. The problem would have been on his trip home. He was from Canada and apparently he would have had a problem at the border trying to reenter Canada with a different serial numbered gun than the one he had brought into the states. Apparently, it's easier for Canadians to bring their guns into the U.S. than to take them back to Canada.
  15. Nope, TTN/Cimarron => Lindsey Vonn Fast, fast, rugged, fearless, strong. Good luck, GJ
  16. Great Matrix!!! Many thanks Some more detail: Now it looks like one could shoot REALLY BIG BORES in classic cowboy/girl, as it only states: " .40 or larger rimmed, .36 or larger cap and ball " But of course, the overall upper caliber limit for SAS main matches is .45 (SHB p.37/39) Equanimous
  17. Today
  18. BMC, Haven't heard from you in a while. I always enjoy your posts, and your commentary on others. Hope you're well, and things are good out in Pacific NW.

    wrong rifle!

    and pre drill the holes. Abeline beat me.
  20. I don't watch it! I checked what was going on when the Indians game went to a commercial! I'd like to see him lose already, like I said before it's like watching baseball games and they're blowouts every single night. I have nothing against this guy I just can't get excited about it! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
  21. I have several hammered doubles, including a very nice Rossi. I have always felt that the TTN/cimarron 1878 is the tops for cowboy action, the Rossi is next. With a little work the CZ works fine but with the hammers spread wide it is a little harder to get it cocked than a TTN. I have given up my FFL license and am selling off most of my inventory, which are now personal guns. Thank you, Johnny Meadows
  22. So don't watch it, we'll let you know when he's gone, I'm thinking sometime after the 4th he'll get bored and stop pressing the buzzer.
  23. Plains tribes are famous for using the same style of mural to tell the story of important events. One of the best known is a pictorial history of the Battle of the Little Big Horn. I wonder if, at some point, if that room was used by some Indian that had fought in the French and Indian War. Then again, literacy rates were low enough back then that it could have been done by a white man as well.
  24. It's a form of self-punishment. I have some bad habits. High volume weekend ice cream intake is one of them.
