No problem, my friend. I had too many duties last week with both the NV State WB Championship and the 23rd Annual Roop County Days to deal with much else. Thanks for your help last week. Your efforts to help our organization out are exactly why you were appointed to a WB Ambassador position.

See you this weekend (perhaps) at the Gold Country WB Match at DDCT.

JJ,

I wish you would have said something at the time. I'm no M12 gunsmith, but I know my why around them and would have happily looked at your gun.

Thank you for pointing this out.  It is a good question.  The committee will review it and get back to everyone.

Had a cowboy with a "new to him" 1911 that failed the weight check.  We found a tungsten guide rod in it when he disassembled it. It was news to him.

Wild Bunch Rules Forum / Weight of magazine with legal base pad?
« Last post by OzarkShark on September 17, 2019, 04:20:26 AM »
The current rules read "Empty magazines must weigh no more than three ounces."  I would like a clarification that magazine weight was not changed when base pads were legalized.

I have reviewed the records from several years of state WB matches and found the average weight was just over 2.5 ounces with a couple of heavy outliers at 2.7 ounces.  A glued-on pad should not make the the average magazine over weight, but a screwed on pad on one of the heavy outliers could push it over the 3 ounce limit.

Thanks!

The Wild Bunch Wire / Model 12 Action Jobs - Who ??
« Last post by JJ on September 16, 2019, 12:07:17 PM »
Hello the Wild Bunch Wire -

Late last year I purchased my first Model 12 scattergun for WB Shooting.

Last week, the Battle Born Rangers based in Fernley Nevada, hosted our 3rd Nevada State WB Match. During that match I had the privilege of being possed with many good shooters of which most were using Model 12's. 

The Model 12 I purchased many months ago just does not feed properly. I did address this problem on this forum and Goatneck, who is no longer with us, responded to me explaining the problem and how to fix the problem. Unfortunately I never took the time to have Goatneck fix my ailing Model 12.

Now, being out in the middle of basically no-where, I again have absolutely no idea on who does Model 12 action work.

Any help offered, either on this forum or in a PM to me would be greatly appreciated.

By the way - for our match last week, Tully Mars (a frequent contributor to this forum) came to visit us and again took 'Top Honors' for the match. It was a pleasure to be on the same posse with him, watch him shoot his 45 and Model 12 and an honor for him to call me his friend.

Our scores for the 2019 Nevada State Wild Bunch Match will be posted on the following link just as soon as our webmaster catches up from a week of heavy involvement with the Reno Air Races.

Thanks - J.J.

Boggus is right. FIRING that overloaded round is ILLEGAL.  Simple as that.

How is the ammo illegally acquired?   Carried properly in a magazine.    It's not illegal to load eight rounds in a magazine now.

As Boggus Deal also stated, the shooter only earns a penalty if they shoot more than 7 rounds from a magazine. 

Shooter would only have shot 7 rounds that were in the magazine.
There must be something else we need to know about why anyone would ever want to load 8 rounds in a magazine.

Good luck, GJ

Very simple, Garrison Joe. The Wild Bunch Rules Committee has said so. If a stage calls for 4 shotgun rounds, you load 6, jack a live one out and shoot the next round loaded, it’s illegally acquired ammo.

People would only ever want to load eight in a magazine because others keep perniciously,  ignorantly or arrogantly telling them it’s perfectly fine to do so.
Now, GJ, the question has been asked and answered.
