  1. Clarification of rule-need help

    Thanks Ace of Hearts. Got a little confusing with addressing GF and other categories together. Like Allie said, this is a lot to take in.
  2. Shooting After Shoulder Joint Replacement

    Good luck on yours Buckeye Pete!!! I'll call Johnny and see how he is doing. Can't keep him down. Thanks
  3. WTC restart/reshoot

    If a TO says stop and you do not, it is a stage dq. If a TO says go, and it is improper coaching, it should be grounds for a re-shoot. The benefit should go to the shooter. I understand it should not be grounds for moving with a loaded firearm. We should not be criticizing TO's that make a mistake. If we only allow TO's that make every call perfect, there will be no one left to time us!

    And so the discussion continues...... Discussion at today's match. Shooter shoots 4 out of 1st revolver, shoots 5 out of 2nd revolver; can the shooter draw the 1st revolver and shoot the final round w/o penalty?
  5. Shooting After Shoulder Joint Replacement

    Having a total right shoulder replacement surgery on Dec. 19th. There is no rotator cuff damage so the surgeon is confident I will be back in approximately 4 months. Said the shotgun should not be a problem. They decided not to do the reverse replacement. Johnny Meadows is having his in November. Keep us in your prayers and if you see us around bring ice!!!
  6. Who has action jobs on Ruger new vaqueros

    PS. If you do not want a short stroke, Bob James is also world class. Had him do an action job on a Colt last year and it is incredible!!! He has also worked on my Ruger's.

    SASS Kicker, Cody James and myself all have Shotgun Boogie actions. SASS Kicker and Cody James have won world and national championships with Lassiter action work. Both are incredible!!!!!

    If the shooter holsters a revolver after firing four rounds, isn't the shooter allowed to draw and shoot the fifth round, whether the hand leaves the revolver or not, as long as they have not fired the next rifle or shotgun? This would only apply if it was not holstered on 1/2 cock or cocked.
  9. Bordertown 2017

    Hi Wichita-The scores are posted on the wire either that night or the next day. Just type in the search for the wire 2017 Bordertown Results. There was a night shoot Thursday night and couples shoot on Sunday. I have been going with my kids for 6 years now and notice most shooters are in town due to the nature of the ambience of Tombstone. I maybe wrong, but I thought there was a costume contest. Maybe next year hit the famous bars and restaurants in Tombstone. Many of the shooters are wearing their firearms in town and catching up with friends during dinner and after.
  10. Bordertown 2017

    Hi Wichita-The scores are posted on the wire and their website. They were posted on the wire on October 29th or 30th within a day of the shoot. Just type in the search for the wire, 2017 Bordertown Results. On their website go under match results, them type in 2017. There was a night shoot Thursday night and couples shoot on Sunday. I have been going with my kids for 6 years now and notice most shooters are in town after the shoot due to the nature of the ambience of Tombstone. I maybe wrong, but I thought there was a costume contest. Maybe next year hit the famous bars and restaurants in Tombstone. Many of the shooters are wearing their firearms in town and catching up with friends during dinner and after. It is one of our favorite shoots due the stages and target placement and my guess is it will continue to sell out in 7 to 8 days. Hope to see you next year and continue to enjoy!!!

    Another question: What constitutes "returning a revolver to leather"? Even though I have placed my revolver in the holster but have not released it, can I pull the revolver out of the holster and fire it if the hammer is on 1/2 cock or fully cocked as long as it is in a safe direction? Sorry, but really making an effort to understand the rule book.
  12. Clarification of rule-need help

    The key words are that the action is closed. I may have answered my own question. The shooter that shoots nine and discards his rifle will almost always discard it with the action open which is correctable before the next firearm is shot. Is this right?
  13. Clarification of rule-need help

    Just want to check and make sure I understand. So if the shooter shoots only 9 rounds and releases the rifle before the TO calls it, and the shooter has not shot the next firearm, the shooter cannot be called back to correct it without penalty. Sorry, just want to make sure. I will add this page to my shooters handbook.
  14. Clarification of rule-need help

    Sorry, should have clarified. If the rifle is not angled toward the berm you may be called to correct it before moving down range. My concern on calling back a shooter regarding a case or live round came to me when the was looking at the pocket RO card on page 41 which states, "empty or live round in magazine or carrier of the long gun in which it was loaded after the next firearm is fired, or if the last firearm, put down at the unloading table". My question is whether the penalty can be corrected before the next firearm is shot, or does it happen once the rifle leaves the shooters hands. Hope this helps.
  15. Clarification of rule-need help

    A shooter sits down his rifle to move to the next firearm. Before the shooter fires the next firearm the shooter is called back to the rifle by the TO for an empty case or a live round. The shooter corrects the rifle and moves to the next firearm arm and proceeds. On page 17 of the shooters handbook it states, (There is no opportunity to correct this condition before firing the next firearm, as the penalty takes effect upon leaving the shooter's hands). Then underneath it states, "if the long fun is the last firearm used, it must be cleared prior to it leaving the shooters hand(s) at the unloading area. If it is stating that you do not have until the next firearm is shot, should you ever call back anyone on a rifle that leaves the shooters hands other than correcting a 170 violation?
