    Colt: What's the weather like that time of year? Covered areas to load cap guns? The reason I ask is that I prefer not to shoot cap guns in the rain -- That's why God invented cartridge guns. Thanks --Dawg

    Elderly - Disabled Category?

    He can also shoot the shotgun targets with a 3rd pistol, like a Josey Wales shooter. Has to hit them, but they do not have to fall. Or with his rifle, if it will hold 14 rounds Just a thought

    Repair, replace or? Handguns.

    Here is what I would do..... Buy a new set of Model Ps & have them slicked up Then sell the old ones to a new shooter who is looking to get into the game on a budget, or to a tinkerer who maybe would like to buy a set of "project" guns & wants t rebuild them himself. That will partially finance the new purchase. Then, sell them when you quit shooting That will partially finance the purchase. When all is said & done, the new pair won't end up costing you much. or Buy a set of Rugers & shoot the piss out of 'em. Then, when you're done, sell 'em for more than you paid for them. If you've shot Colt-style guns for the last 18 years, you might never get used to Rugers tho. I've tried to like Rugers for many years now. Had several sets Always ended up selling them, cuz I like my Colts, USFAs, Piettas, & Ubertis too much --Dawg

    Elderly - Disabled Category?

    At Tusco we have a pard who shoots from his wheel chair His category is "Stage Coach Reinsman" He can safely handle his guns Everything is staged, and some shooting positions are modified for him. Everyone helps him negotiate the stages & he has a good time. He and his lovely wife even come to the 3-day if they can. I'm sure your local club will accommodate your dad. --Dawg

    Reduced Recoil Shotgun Loads?

    Hi Folks: Yes, a shotgun with an appropriately shortened and buttplate-profiled shotgun is importsmnt. Here is a link to a superlite shotshell that is lighter than a Winchester featherlite and knocks 'em down every time. http://www.dakotaskipper.net/ebay/ClaysSuperliteShotshell.pdf --Dawg

    Hammered SxS

    I'm not talking about the checkered part of the hammer. I'm talking about the razor-sharp projections just behind the hammer face. --Dawg

    Hammered SxS

    Used to waste my $$ buying antiques, like those from American Gun Company & "hardware store" hammerguns Then hope they worked correctly, or paid a smith a bunch of $$ to fix 'em Years ago, I read about the new TTNs being made in China Bought one from Nate Kiowa Jones & Been shootin' it since they were introduced. Never needed anything but a pair of new hammer springs. Removed the "ears" off the hammers too, since it was cutting my hand. Retired it to "back-up" service this year & replaced it with a lightly shot TTN that I bought from Rye Miles a while ago. Replaced the lever spring with a new Slix -- What a difference Have a NIB Cimarron (TTN) in the safe as a "back-up to my back-up" I love hammer shotguns, and the Cimarron/TTN guns are some of the best for this game. I had a Pioneer at one time. Built like Tanks. Nice shotgun, but I always chose my TTN to take to a shoot. My good pard Colorado Coffinmaker shoots a Pedersoli Wyatt Earp They are really nice, but pricey! The Cimmaron coach guns can be had for $500 - $600 on GunBroker, at Bud's gun shop, etc Worth every penny I personally would not shoot an antique shotgun with Damascus or Twist barrels. I know some folks do, but I value my left hand too much, and I shoot BP, but there are a few well-built modern hammer guns, so why risk it?, is the way I think. --Dawg

    OVV this Saturday June 23rd

    I'll be there. Don't forget, boys & girls, that yer shooting in the shade & the area around the stages is grass, not gravel, so it's about as cool as can be had on a Summer day! --Dawg
