    RO-I and RO-II classes at Eldorado

    The club house/classroom is located on the range and is air conditioned. This is important, as the first weekend in October will usually see temperatures in excess of 90 degrees. It is always helpful if you download and bring with you a Shooters Handbook.

    De-cocking Rifle While Reloading on the line

    You statement is false. On a toggle link rifle you must close THE LEVER to load through the gate. You can do an over the top reload with the lever open. The same is true for Marlins but on Marlins and Henry Big Boy a one round reload is usually done by throwing a round in the ejection port with the lever open. On a Model 94, a single reload is usually done over the top with the lever open. Please explain your statement..... On most Rifles! Also.Be aware. That the penalty only applies if you are de-cocking to avoid a penalty. If you are reloading your rifle on the line there should be no avoidance of penalty.

    making Henry Big Boy SASS ready???

    Many times, the current members of Cowboy Action Shooting forget that this sport is about fun. But that "fun" is different for everyone. Sometimes that fun is just shooting the guns we have to the best of the tools ability. I have watched many a cowboy struggle with pistols, shotguns, and rifles of the not so common variety and enjoy every minute of figuring out what makes them run. Enjoy your Henry Big Boy. If I can help you with words and pictures privately to make it the best it can be, I will. If at any time your not having fun due to your equipment, then and only then is it time ti change to something that will stir the fun gene again.

    making Henry Big Boy SASS ready???

    The Henry rifle does not have many parts available to make it better for Cowboy Action Shooting. http://www.uniquetek.com/product/T1337 This mainspring will make it easier to lever the rifle as the original is way over sprung. The Henry will work much better with 357 brass and not any lighter than 125gr bullets. Keep your loaded rounds at near maximum length. Do not over tighten the screws. This gun is not a Marlin!

    How can you shoot this?

    So if I were presented with only one (1) target and a load of 4 rifle.... Scenario says triple tap the target and then then place the last round on the target, I would get a "P" for quad tapping it?

    How can you shoot this?

    Let's see. "Triple tap" the 3 targets in any order....... I shoot 1 - 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 - 2 ......... This is a correct way of shooting the sequence as written..... NO PROCEDURAL AT THIS POINT. NOW Then place the 10th round on target 2....... According to some, I cannot complete the instruction without someone saying in is a procedural. To those people, and those people only, please advise me on how to shoot the 10th round without getting a P....... Or does shooting the 10th round on target 2 cause the preceding correct order of engagement to suddenly and magically become an incorrect order?

    How can you shoot this?

    That is why there are posse leader walk through at major matches, and the question should be brought up at that time.
