  1. Thanks for sharing! Very cool!
  2. Charlie worked hard to distance himself from his early days, where he supported smokin' dope. Regardless, "Long-Haired Country Boy" and "Uneasy Rider" were stone-cold classics. He was a real American, and an unabashed supporter of our armed services and law enforcement services. In light of that, he has no apologies to make for his early recordings. (and Uneasy Rider was a riot!)
  3. Like a soup sandwich... Ain't that the truth. I've seen a few situations like this in my time in this sport, but it's always the shooters responsibility to maintain safe control of their weapon (there I go again, pissing off the NRA again by calling it a weapon. . .oh, well). That includes some dumb-assed RO walking in front of them. And that's as it should be. The shooter is ALWAYS responsible for their weapon, and where it's pointed. No question. Regardless of all else that's been said, the shooter DQ'd themself in this instance. But I hate to see so much asshatery involved in what should have been a simple situation. Unload and Show Clear, and let some RO see to the problem downrange. Yeah, I've had a bunch of shooters stand on the line with a loaded gun in their holster while an errant popper was reset, or other range equipment malfunction was attended to, but I sure as Hell wouldn't ask the shooter to pull their loaded blaster out as part of the remedial process. There just isn't a process within our ruleset to appropriately punish the dumbassed RO at that moment. I can't think of proper wording for such a rule, and I guess no one else has been able to either, or it would exist. It's sorta like one of those heart-breaking ASPCA commercials where you think, "That shouldn't be that way". . .but it is.
  4. I know that, Gary. I'm saying that a more immediate, local consequence would be nice. And if they're not a certified RO, the process doesn't really apply.
  5. I've been reading this since the minute it started. A lot of good points have been made. I can't deny the competitors responsibility for their muzzle discipline. They are ultimately responsible for whether their muzzle flags themselves or someone else. I think most are agreed on this. New or not, you don't let your muzzle cover anything you don't wish to destroy. To do so is a DQ. But, the RO in this instance isn't roped in as tightly, according to our rules. He unfortunately gets to walk away unscathed. I know it's not right, and I know there's not a path to discipline the RO, but he should at least not be allowed to hold a timer again until he gets some serious training.
  6. It's never happend to me. Are you mobile-surfing? TapATalk, maybe?
  7. So many hits. I met him briefly at a restaurant opening in North Atlanta about 30 years ago. A very nice gentleman.
  8. Got it. You had me worried. You went from Thank You, to F%#k You in lap-record time.
  9. I think he's wondering if it was a socially-distanced sweep.
