  2. Don Elms of Albuquerque has passed away this last Sunday. Don was a long time leader in the Albuquerque shooting sports, and a mentor to many. He will be missed. He was known for, among other things, his one-liners. My favorite has always been "This is America, you can do what you want."
  3. Rainier, Good price! https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1050337508/rainier-leadsafe-bullets-40-s-and-w-10mm-auto-400-diameter-165-grain-plated-round-nose-flat-point
  4. I know the new owner (management). He has not announced anything formally yet, so I won't either. I do know he knows how to make it work, and I have no doubt he will.
  5. I use small rifle primers, so the extended firing pin gets a more consistant stike. I understand the rifle primers are a little tougher?
  6. When did this happen? I can't find anything about it.
  7. No, I did not. Saw it happen to someone I don't even know.
  8. The course specifies an unloaded start and the shooter has 11 rounds in his mag. Many do to begin a loaded start, but it is easy to forget. So that calls for a bump to Open: However, if a competitor fails to satisfy the equipment or other requirements of a declared Division during a course of fire, the competitor will be placed in Open Division, if available, otherwise the competitor will shoot the match for no score. Appendix D4, 9: Yes, maximum 10 rounds loaded in any magazine after the start signal So, my question is: Isn't that a bit harsh? To ruin an entire match because of 1 extra round? Perhaps just a procedural would be appropriate?
  9. All i could get last night...
  10. Seriously?
  11. When did a number sign become a hashtag?
  12. Don't know the answer, but it works for me under Ipad safari. It automatically logs me on when I open the site.
  13. Nice! Is that the "sawtooth" serrations? Not sure. Back in the day, Speed Shooters International was a stocking dealer. Got it from them. No wait. Serial number is SSI-nnnn
  14. 70k rounds. Working Dog.
  15. The new sign up process worked for me, and it is tons better than last years "wait list". There are a few things.... It required a middle initial. Wierd. It required a country be typed in, when it already said United States. Worst was it would not work on Ipad Safari beacause it said I had to choose a payment option at the top, when there was none visible. I switched to Chrome, and the option for adult or juvenile was visible.
