    SxS "split times"

    I recently started shooting trap. Just about anyone I speak to about target aquisision says to not look at the front sight. It is ALL about shotgun fit. If the shotgun fits right, it will hit where you are looking....both eyes open. I'm sure this same philosophy has some bearing on hitting huge metal targets that aren't moving a few feet in front of us. So, if the gun fits, get it to shoulder and have at it! I'm impressed that someone that shoots as well as Renegade Roper is interested in getting even better. I've had the pleasure of shooting with her many times. I can only hope to perform as well as she does! You go girl!

    12g 960FPS shotshell load info

    I recently started reloading for shotguns. I'm looking for a load that duplicates the Winchester Cowboy Load , AA12FL8. Everything I can find lists powders that are discontinued. What say the board?

    Sold Locally. Uberti 1873 Border Rifle 45 Colt For Sale

    You can buy a 38-40 barrel from VTI and easily convert it. I did this to two 45 Colt rifles. No issues what so ever. Both headspaced perfectly. Sold the 45 barrels for just about what the 38 barrels cost.

    Loads for C45S

    Interesting observation about 45CB. I load 3.5 Trail Boss under a 160g round nose. My wife uses 3.3 TB under 125g in 38 Special. Recently on a ranch we were practicing shooting at a piece of 2x6 lumber. Her 38s went right though. My 45CBs barely entered the wood. The rear of the bullet was flush with the surface of the 2x6. I could simply dig the bullet out and could probably reloaded them! Love the 45CB....especially with black powder!

    Comin at Cha......"Done"

    Simply amazing week here at the Badlands Bar 3 ranch. Hard to explain, but the best I heard is ...."A week of partying with some shooting thrown in for fun!" Thanks to the whole team for making it all possible. Can't wait for next year!

    What One Thing Decreased Your Time?

    Transitions, transitions, transitions.......this is a game of transitions. I found this out by competing in speed side matches where I was actually competitive. But in a stage, my transitions are so bad I'm many seconds slower than I could be. I shoot with someone who is simply amazing with transitions. Yet when you watch her shoot she looks like she is going slow. So smooth. Then you hear her time! And she is a regional and national championship!

    Congratulations to Penny Candy - "Comin' At Cha" Cowgirl Champion

    Is there some kind of unwritten rule that an SASS clubs can not simply list the address of the club in its advertisement for a match? I can't believe how often I have to do massive research to find out where the match is located. Many time there isn't even a city or state listed. This is the latest "address" of a match I was interested in. Our CAS range is located 6 miles southwest of XXXX, XX or 11 miles east of XXXXX. And sometimes they give only GPS coordinates!!!! I'm not flying in or coming by boat!! Just give me a simple street, city, state, zip and I'll be happy.

    Hell Fire 2018

    Me too! Spent last night at "Downtown RV Park" in Little Rock........Temps yesterday hit 100 degrees. My trailer skin was 125 degrees. I couldn't get the camper door open. Had to spray it with water to cool it down to get it open. I'm from Boston area, not used to this type of heat. Gonna be fun!

    What is the "STOP" on the barrels?
  21. Rancho Roy


    I have two cars with built in GPS and a Garmin in the truck. Non of them show GPS coordinates.......... In the ads in the Chronicle, even City and State would help. Many times this simple info isn't listed.......

    New Product-CZ Sharp-Tail Coach Gun

    The Sharp Tail is a revised version of the previous shotgun. Now with more reliable coil springs....that is basically the difference. Workmanship and quality has always been top notch with Huglu guns.
