  1. The only limitation at my club on such matters is that you shoot the fastest firearm first. Say you signed-up for Open and Single-Stack. You have to shoot Open first. The reason is that too many very fast, Open shooters were using other classes to warm-up on each stage.
  2. Thanks for the feedback. I can imagine the SLO/Morro Bay fog must feel great to a valleyite during the summer...
  3. Only the section's State Championship in Sept. How did you like it? That's my home range.
  4. Great input, thanks! Ever shoot at SLOSA's Hogue Action Pistol Range?
  5. Thanks for the list. That Quickclot is amazing stuff, aye? It doesn't burn too bad...
  6. In addition to firearms and ammo, eyes/ears, something to drink/eat and possibly extra clothes, what (e.g. lube(s), screwdrivers, etc.) makes up your match "kit"? Thanks.
  7. I guess Ruger is already offering its own version. For 900 bucks... https://ruger.com/products/1022Competition/specSheets/31120.html
  8. I have long been thinking about setting up an "open" rifle for Rimfire Challenge action shooting competition. I was reading about the Thompson/Center Arms T/CR22 and it seems like it's close to being ready to go for ~$285.00: - Machined aluminum receiver with an integral Picatinny rail. - It's light -- #4.4. - Magpul stock well-suited for action shooting. - Pre-threaded for compensator. - Accepts trigger groups (including BX) and magazines designed for Ruger 10/22. - Last shot hold-open feature (when using T/C mags.) - Stock fiber optic sights for possible Limited Class competition. - Best of all, based on Youtube feedback from some reputable people, this thing flat-out runs reliably on just about any 22LR ammo. It's possible to spend quite a bit more (easily 2x-4x) to get these features in a Ruger 10/22 based firearm, or another based on the 10/22 (e.g. Magnum Research MLR.) Is the T/CR22 as good a deal as it appears -- is it T/C (Smith & Wesson) attempting to take a bite out of its main competitor, or am I missing something? Thanks.
  9. Please delete. Wrong forum.
  10. Yeah, I agree. I almost always double-up too. Plus, those ears that go around the back of the neck rather than over the top of one's head tend to be uncomfortable. Someone said they wear a wide-brimmed hat except when they are actually at the line. I think I might start doing that too. Now to find a warm hat for the winter that provides at least a bit of UV protection. Maybe I'll grab an Irish Walking Hat?
  11. Why do you have to act rude/childish? I received a number of good inputs on my question and I appreciate it. Yet a handful just had to be rude/childish. Just why is that? This isn't AR15.com or CalGuns.net. BE has always (and I have been coming here for nearly 10 years) a place of learning and good information exchange. If you can't contribute to a specific thread, why not simply skip it?
