    Truncated rounds in lever gun

    I'm now using TC in both my rifle and pistol. Formerly, I used DEWC in my pistol. However, the Mr. Bullet feeders Hubby got don't like to feed DEWCs.

    Lending guns to new comers is it Cowboy, or Crazy?

    To swing back the other way on trusting new shooter ability. Let me give an example of using judgment and flexibility. Hubby was always a PM at a certain club. We were members of the range and the club. A well-known, to us, shooter brought and loaned guns to a new-to-SASS shooter to the match. It was the newbie's first SASS match. Before the match, the local and Hubby talked about the newbie. Hubby said "ask to be on my posse and, at the shooters meeting, do not raise your hand when they ask for newbies. The club was extreme on who could shoot without an orientation by one of the Officers. That shooter came out in the top five shooters, ahead of some of the officers. Regards, Allie PS The moral of all my posts is to be cautious and flexible.

    Hi Pat, I was writing this when you replied to Phantom and OLG. I don't think you need to worry about SASS mandating no loans as that is a state-by-state legal issue (like you posted). It is just like they don't make restrictive rules to conform to some European restrictions that SASS affiliated clubs there must adhere to. One point I tried to make was that, if someone no one knows calls and claims familiarity with guns, you need to be cautious about loaning guns and letting them shoot a match. One thing that should set off alarms (referring to the jacketed ammo guy) was his haste to shoot a match without any guns or orientation. The new guy everyone loved, shot with different club members after several matches and observed many matches. In effect he had become well known (no one knew him in the beginning) and he had impromptu orientations. I don't think Phantom, OLG, or I want anyone to not welcome new observers. I think we would agree that one should be careful about the circumstances when loaning guns. I also believe that SASS will not step into this area. Sincerely, Allie

    Baby Kitties

    Another milestone, I saw the striped kitten use the sand box twice. They still won't eat cat food. They just walk through the dry as it is pebbles in their path. I'm also putting out wet kitten food.

    Baby Kitties

    Yay, Yippee, Yee Haw! The owner called today and said I get my choice of kittens. (He just told me two days ago that his step daughter got her choice.) Now Hubby says he wants a different one than I do. Like he's been their scratching post, jungle Jim,... for the last two weeks.

    45 auto rim question

    Hubby shot 45 auto rim Colt SAAs. I could ask him to try them in a 1911. However, I may not want to post what he says here.

    Traffic Lights or Round Abouts?

    I just went through our circle Monday. All four entry points have yield signs. One side didn't yield for anyone who arrived at the circle first. We waited while three cars entered without yielding the right of way to cars that were on their right and there first. So, IMO, circles elicit a free-for-all. He/she who it is "all about" has priority. Manners are lost on them.

    Lending guns to new comers is it Cowboy, or Crazy?

    PS About "know who you are loaning guns to" and know your state laws. I just heard a story this month about a DOJ "infiltrator." This supposedly happened after Timothy McVeigh bombed the OK Federal building in 1995. I don't know the shooting sport he infiltrated. He observed things for a while then made arrests for things that happened at the range. Part of the story was that the DOJ man was well liked. I tried to verify the story; but could not. If it is not true, I apologize. However, it wouldn't surprise me if it were true.

    Hi Folks, Hubby, AKA Gun Boy doesn't mind me loaning my '97s to newbies. Colts and Rifles are another story. Although he did offer pistols and rifle to newbie who I bragged on for a year. That newbie came to almost every match and picked brass, reset targets, counted, put out rugs... What a guy! He never took me up on it. He had his first match last month and did great. We had one new shooter who was loaned guns by someone (the club president who didn't know him) who wasn't even at the match. A third party brought them. This was a perfect example of something that should not happen. At that time I gave orientations before the match and told newbie when to arrive. He was late. So, I put him on the posse with the third party. They had to watch his muzzle control closely. At his second match, I saw him loading jacketed ammo in his gun belt. I explained not allowed and why. He said they told him at the gunstore it was okay for Cowboy. I said no. After he shot a stage, the brass pickers found jacketed ammo on the ground. The PM explained and told him to not do it again. I spread the word among local MDs. At his third match, after he was caught using jacketed ammo again, he was told he was done for the day, MDQ. He continued to shoot until health derailed him. So, the morals of these two stories are to be flexible and cautious. Know who you are loaning guns to. Regards, Allie

    Coming to loading table with empty cases in revolver penalty

    The ULTO is a very important position to ensure a cold range really is cold. Having empties in the pistol is not the problem, it is the round that was not fired that is worrisome. Or the shooter who loads four in one revolver and six in the other. When something bad happens it may be compounded into a full-blown "Train Wreck." Rance, I've seen it happen frequently.

    Patience, Grasshopper, Patience.

    We topped that once. We filled our manager's entire cubicle with them and put cat photos all over his walls. It was his birthday, so one of my co-workers made a cat box cake. He didn't like cats.
