    Holster angle and position

    I had the holsters more to the front and canted for awhile. I have long arms, and from hands at your sides the move to get to the revolver is up and towards your body center at the beep, grab the grip and semi reverse direction to get the gun out of the holster. Since I've gone to the buscadero style it's a short straight rise to get my hand on the grip and the gun is pulled straight up with no direction change. Try different stuff. YMMV. NNV

    Your favorite 12ga load for CAS.

    1 ounce of 7.5. Any wad for 1 ounce. Remington Nitro hull. 14 grains of Promo. Winchester Primer (works better in my pump)

    Ammunition and light primer strikes

    Not seating primers deep enough is usually the problem, not the other way around. If they are not deep enough, the anvil is not in the primer compound and the first hit only seats the primer fully. Then the second hit usually sets it off. They need to be flush to a bit recessed. I take all my match ammunition and, one at a time, put them on a flat plate. Any wobble, they go in the rework bin. I then use a gauge to check the round before it goes into the ammo box.

    Who makes holsters for Gun Carts?

    E-bay has regular holsters that you could use. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Western-Leather-Gun-Holster-Single-Action-Revolver/232931932166?epid=1132213911&hash=item363bd33806:g:RokAAOxyqUpQ9OB9

    making Henry Big Boy SASS ready???

    I started with one and was fine until my speed started to come up. Then it would jam the cartridge on the chamber edge and would not allow the lever to reverse. It was jammed and done for the stage. The lever had to be removed to fix the jam and no one had a solution. I traded it in on a '73. I know a couple of shooter that use them successfully. Their stages are in the 35 to 40 second range. If you're good with that and the rifle cycles for you at that speed, enjoy it. If you want to get below 30 second stages, I think you'll start to see problems.

    How can you shoot this?

    It's like a car wreck that you have slow down and look at. I just can't stop reading.

    How can you shoot this?

    If a quadruple tap is not prohibited, then it is allowed. If you don't want one, say so.

    How can you shoot this?

    If the stage writer wants a triple tap sweep starting on either end and then put the 10'th shot on the center target, they he/she should say so. Otherwise, the way it was shot is fine. The other way to say it is triple tap in any order, 10'th shot goes on the middle, no quadruple taps allowed.

    WSP Magnum for 38 Special?

    I use Federal Primers and most of the time they are magnums. The magnums are easier to get and I can't tell any difference in the cartridge performance for light loads both for 38 special (pistols) and 357 mag. (rifle)

    Ruger 357/9MM

    I have Ruger Blackhawks in 357 Mag as my backup guns and won't hesitate to use them.

    Cody-matic questions

    200 grain RNFP crimped in the groove works fine for me. I use Trail Boss loaded mid range. This is definitely one cartridge that doesn't do well as far as blowback with light loads, in my experience.

    WTC - reloads

    Once you declare a gun "broke" it no longer can be used. In this case if you declare the gun "broke", the only thing you can do is put it down. A FTF can be fixed with a reload. However, in this case, if you only can take one gun to shoot and declare it broke, you're done.
