  1. And, hopefully, that light is not a train headed your way.
  2. On the advice of my CNP (based on her personal experience) I ordered the Compression Marathon Socks by PRO Compression off of Amazon and they have been a great help in controlling the moderate edema in my lower legs. They also feel very comfortable once they're on. Since these are the only ones I have tried I can't comment on the comfort/effectiveness of other brands.
  3. Okay, so I know we're only a couple days into the new year, but any word on if this match will be returning for 2020?
  4. Face it, Gary. Now that we're Super Seniors, we ARE old!
  5. Very similar to what Coach Lengyel would tell us. "Contrary to popular belief, practice does NOT make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect."
  6. Ssshh! Don't give away too many of our secrets.
  7. According to Dawson's website it's legal for both USPSA and IDPA .
  8. This has been pretty well covered before. In the end you'll just have to find what YOUR gun likes with the load(s) it shoots best. No real easy way around it.
  9. Please, people! You're messing with the mind of a Super Senior! Everyday life is hard enough without tossing in all these rules challenges.
  10. Let Smith pay for the shipping and repair. It was their mistake.
  11. Including a goodly number of its inhabitants.
  12. Can't wait to hear how a double reload was managed.
  13. Nice to know a match in the tradition of the Single Stack Classic is continuing. Unfortunately, continuing health problems prevented me from signing up this year. I hope this match will continue for years to come. I'd love to get back out on the range at PASA with a 1911.
  14. Everybody knows they eject faster than ones with carburetors.
  15. I remember something Rob said at the Bianchi Cup many years ago when he had decided to switch from revolver to semi-auto. He said that although he was able to shoot more Xs with the semi-auto he was also more likely to "jerk" a shot than with a revolver.
  16. Take the time to learn/relearn your trigger. Try to be smooth with the least front sight wiggle you can before trying for more speed. There's a reason we did walk-throughs and half-speed scenarios before running a play full tilt.
  17. Rather than the calipers, you may want to measure your cylinder throats with a set of pin gauges. They may provide a more accurate measurement. Don't be surprised if you find the cylinder throats to be different sizes.
