Warm up? WARM UP? You don't need no stinkin' warm up!!! Especially if that scoundrel Shell Stuffer is coming with you!
Seriously, as HJ stated, there won't be time for a warm up at WR. However, on the Friday before the match starts, there is a WB match at Cowtown. I do believe the practice bay will be open at WR on Sunday. I will check and if I find out anything, I will report here.
Look forward to seeing you!

Back 40,  Boggus Deal is the MD this year. I don't think there is time during setup at WR for a warm-up. He might be able to give you some more info. You might get in touch with Legendary Lawman who is always there a few days early to see if they shoot somewhere else.

The usual is no Wild Bunch Warm-up.  Shooters meeting at 8:00am Monday, shooting starts at 8:30.

Thanks in advance

I stumbled across this today on Gunbroker. Thought there might be a traditional shooter out there that might be interested. I'm not selling it nor am I buying so I don't have a dog in this fight.

Understand where you coming from BD, but there might be one being used in need of repair?
I'm really not interested if it can fire or not.....you maybe right but it did happen to Kathouse Kelli in Texas last year where she racked the slide and 3 shots went of automatically before stopping. We can only deduce that the securing plate for the firing pin was not quite lined up centrally, thus holding the pin forward, it chambered 3 rounds. I have checked the gun had it checked by others and it's perfect, so it may depend on different guns.

BUT......I'll refer to paragraph two of my original post. Check it again.???

Just why oh why do we want to break our own set of basic rules for this game.??
Why then do we have that rule in the first place?
This ruling is really not necessary and I only see it being pushed by shooters who are VERY familiar with other shooting disciplines where they maybe be allowed to do that!.. That's fine, let them be, but why are we continually changing rules, to me what seems to suit a few of those particular shooters......what to gain a tenth of a second????
If it's because you think it may attract more shooters, I think you are all sincerely wrong,...and it could have just the opposite affect. :)
Wild Bunch to me and to many other cowboys, is a game to have fun with a 1911, & that it is a tack on from the cowboy era; with a lot of folks totally new who are unfamiliar with is game, ....I see it all the time, some of them have never handled a 1911 before.
SASS advocates that all new WB shooters do an orientation course as outlined in the manual, to make them familiar with the rules and the 1911 when they first start,...(it's not an RO course) but I haven't met or spoken to anyone here who has undergone one.!
We do do them in Australia cause I have done several, and they work very well.
But at the end of the day....BD,....do we really need to go down this path and break our own set of basic rules....might as well change the RO course and delete the rule in my paragraph two!!!
Merry Christmas. :D

Stuck firing pin.
You are right JFN I have had it happen, the gun becomes a canoe anchor cause that's all its good for, the round absolutely will not feed.

Sorry kR that is BD not JFN. I have purposely avoided this discussion.
JFN

P.S. BD is correct.

Jackaroo, if someone puts a pistol down with the slide locked back and the slide falls and a round discharges, that pistol is in serious need of repair! While a 1911 can be made to go full auto, it ain't easy and a stuck firing pin will not cause it to. A stuck firing pin will not allow the cartridge to ride up the face of the slide and chamber. If you have a stuck firing pin, the only way to load a round would be to single load a round in the chamber and drop the slide. It might fire then but will not chamber the next round.
If the pistol fired when placed on a prop, and the slide closing, it would fire when the slide is dropped with the gun in hand. That is for the safety notch on the hammer.
