Wild Bunch Rules Forum / Re: When to make call on moving with slide forward.

GJ,

Not so much keeping up, but being in the proper position to actually see the slide being racked. I'm speaking of moving out of props and forward to another position, such as what we'll have at WR. Some of those buildings aren't suited for having a spotter in position either.

Maybe I'm overthinking it?

The Wild Bunch Wire / Is a "Bobtail" 1911 legal for Wild Bunch?
« Last post by Rolan_Kraps on February 07, 2018, 01:36:59 PM »
I just like the way a Bobtail grip feels and balances.
If you had a 5" 1911 and cut it for a bobtail, would that be legal for Wild Bunch Modern?

This is my carry gun, a Commander, so not legal for any Wild Bunch.  I just like showing it off!

Wild Bunch Rules Forum / Reference to Summary of Rule Changes
« Last post by August West on February 07, 2018, 10:31:48 AM »
Help!  I can't find the summary of the new rule changes that was on this site a while back.  And, one of our shooters had another summarization of the new rules at our last match, which I believe originated with Happy Jack.  Can someone please post links to those summaries?  I have tried to find them and failed.

GJ,

I agree and will make the call on behalf of the shooter if I'm not right there and 100% positive of what I see, unless directed differently well before WR. You and I both know how difficult it could be to keep up with some of our shooters. It otherwise becomes to subjective, just like spotters saying "I think"! Nothing worse than someone voicing those words unless it's to the benefit of the shooter. We all see things differently at times, but once "I think" is voiced everyone starts to question what they themselves saw.

Thanks, See you soon!

TM -

I too have concerns about when to call.  I'm probably going to take the route of stay quiet regardless of what I THINK the gun condition is, until shooter stops at next position.   Then watch to see what pops out when the slide gets racked.

If a live round comes out upon racking, well, SDQ called then. 

If no round, remember a Minor Safety that will be given at end of string.   No way for shooter to correct it during stage, once he takes steps.   So no need to call anything out loud for the MSV until the end.

Don't just look down to see if a live round is on ground to tell difference between the SDQ and MSV call.  It could well have popped off the top of a magazine being drawn from holster and loaded.

And, unfortunately, the spotters probably will rarely be able to help the TO to make the call.  It will all hinge on the TO's ability to position himself to the right side of shooter as the shooter comes to a stop, and to be WATCHING the gun as slide is racked.   

Now, we will also want to speak up if shooter lays down the 1911 with slide forward.   Shooter has until next gun fired to correct that.  A verbal warning would help shooter avoid a MSV for having re-staged an empty 1911 with slide closed.

I believe we will find this (TO seeing the slide rack clearly) to be a hard thing to do when RO'ing high speed shooters and when dodging around props.  WR will make a good  proving ground.   ;)    (Wish it had been put together with simplicity for shooter and TO in mind.)

If a TO does make a SDQ call out loud and realizes that was a bad call, do not be afraid to (ask for ability to give reshoot, which major matches are requiring, and then) give the reshoot for having interfered with the run.

Good luck, GJ

The Wild Bunch Wire / Free Ruger 1911 pistol
« Last post by Back 40 on February 07, 2018, 09:17:36 AM »
....that got your attention, didn't it.  YES, Free Ruger 1911 to one lucky registered shooter at the 2018 Illinois State Wild Bunch Championship on April 7/8, Sparta, Illinois.  The Kaskaskia Cowboys voted to graciously donate a Ruger 1911 Pistol to the shoot. So, here is how we will give it away. All paid registered shooters will receive one ticket. IF you pay and register by April 1st., you will receive 2 additional tickets. IF you pay and register by March 1st. you will receive 4 additional tickets. Early paid registrations help me considerably with ordering meals, ordering trophies, door prizes, attendance prizes, and printing match programs. All checks for registration will NOT be cashed until after the shoot, thus, if you need to cancel, 100% refund. PLUS, this year we will be having side matches on Friday, April 6th. Fastest 1911, fastest shotgun, and NO Shell Stuffer can NOT enter. PLUS, we will also have a BAM match. Bolt Action Military rifle match. Shot 100 yards. This will be fun!

Go to www.kaskaskiacowboys.com  for registration forms. LET'S GET'EM IN!!!!!
THANKS,
Back 40

PS And thanks a bunch to the Kaskaskia Cowboys for their great donation!!!!!
