  1. Did any of you guys ever shoot in the Golden Eagle match near Evansville, Indiana? My brother and some of our friends used to do that one. I know one who won a Springfield M1A that turned out to be a sweet, sweet shooter out of the box! The only "big name" that I know used to shoot the match was Mr. Barnhart. There had to have been some others!
  2. I want to hear more about the money changing hands! It's my understanding that at some clubs in the 80s, there was always money on the line, even at club matches! Nowadays, unless there is a side bet, the idea of cash prizes at a club match are foreign to us around here!
  3. As it should be! Amen! If I had some fancy commemorative gun, the first thing I'd do is make sure it was clean enough to shoot, lubed, and then load it and shoot it.
  4. "Hot" means your can should be in whatever condition it needs to be in to fire. Typically that's cocked'n'locked for a single action gun, or hammer down on a loaded chamber for a double action. "Hot" is how we carry in real life! The real world is a hot range.
  5. I don't obssess over it, but I would never knowingly delcare major if it didn't make it. Jakester and Sunny ... thanks for the feedback on hot ranges!
  6. Just wanting to know how common it was. I'm getting some e-mail from some people who have shot ISPC since the late 70s who never saw a hot range. I still think hot ranges are at least as safe as cold ranges, perhaps more so in a lot of situations.
  7. OKay ... did any of you old timers ever shoot at clubs at that ran their ranges hot in the old days? If so, were there any problems?
  8. Gamer! My brother's old faithful load is 5.8gr of WW231 under the same bullet.
  9. My brother tells me of the days when the eight round magazines were for gamers! The martial artists all used seven rounders, usually with 200gr LSWC loaded to whatever was major back then. Should we blame Devel for creating the equipment race?
  10. I'm going under seven seconds this year ... I will!
  11. Today I'm going to go with "So I Married an Axe Murderer" with Mike Myers, Nancy Travis, Mike Myers, Anthony Lapaglia, etc.
  12. We just don't know how to have fun anymore.
  13. Hah! The increased HHF did not affect me. My score was already below 2%!
  14. I'd better shoot it again before it gets changed!
  15. It's my understanding that my Kentucky buddies now build props to accomodate and withstand moi for big matches. At the 2003 Kentucky State Match, they rebuilt the operating room table to hold me. At the 2004 Area 5, they made sure the seatbelt on one stage was long enough for me to use just like everyone else. I think it's very cool that they show that much concern for me specifically and I am very grateful. The side benefit is that if it will handle me, then it's likely to handle just about anyone. I'm not sure what "they" might have done in the old days. I suspect LTC Cooper would have
