  1. I went to sleep in my Queen shirt and woke up to find my mother hog tied on the floor.
  2. The video I saw was a heads up math between just the two shooters with half a dozen or so stages. There's a part of me that swears Mickey Fowler was the pistol shooter and and Ed McGivern was shooting the revolver. But I can't find any evidence they had such a match. I really want to study the revolver shooter. He was dead on accurate with the barrel just inches above the holster. Obviously a VERY practiced index and absolutely amazing how he was as fast and accurate shooting that way with a DA revolver.
  3. The video appeared to be from the mid 80s and there were spectators. I've searched pistol vs revolver and every name I could think of.
  4. Wasn't Jerry. Wasn't Mundon. Searched for Bill Jordan, no joy.
  5. A few years ago I saw a video on youtube of one of the older revolver greats shooting a sort of challenge match against a more modern great shooting a 1911. The revolver shooter was firing from the hip while the 1911 shooter used a modified Weaver. It was actually a pretty close match, drawing and firing on targets at about 25 feet if I remember correctly. I really want to watch the video again and study some things. Problem is I can't remember who the shooters were and I have searched for hours using different names but can't find the video again. Anyone know or have seen the video? Can you help me with a link or the shooter's names?
  6. A lot of people find frame mounted dots "easier to track" because it's not moving with the slide. Here's a news flash for you. You're not going to see the dot whole the gun is cycling anyway. And quite frankly, if you are, you're doing it all wrong. If you are focused on the dot transitioning to the next target you are going to overshoot the target and have to readjust. Once the shot fires I don't care where the sights go. My eyes are shifting to the next target and I bring the sights to my visual focus on the target. Believe it or not, if you have mastered your index, your body can FAR more easily stop your, gun with the sights aligned, on the target. Try this: Hold your arm out straight and point to something on the wall. Then track your finger to a chosen point on the opposite wall. Now do the same drill again but ignore where your finger is an visually acquire the second target as you turn. I'm betting the second way is quicker for you. And it is no different with a gun. Hardest part is mastering your index, which you should have done by now anyway.
  7. Mel McDaniel - Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On And just then, her mother bursts in And said "You're that son of that bitch in the wind Get outta my house and hit the road And I kept falling like a rollin' stone song
  8. Folgers has many sizes. And Olive jars are great for primer storage.
  9. Cost is kind of the same issue with the new Timney Alpha Competition triggers. But they are getting rave reviews from everyone. If I was a Glock guy I'd be all over it. So I got one for my best friend's birthday instead. He can install it, like it and tell me all about how fantastic it is.
  10. I have always used pieces of pencil eraser but this looks like a far better idea.
  11. He was one of my Fathers favorites, and thus one of mine as well. I love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucksSlow movin' trains and rainI love little country streams, sleep without dreamsSunday school in May and hay
  12. R.I.P. Robin Miller. The man who told the truth about the sport, regardless who might not like it. I have a huge admiration for him. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/motor/indy-500/2021/08/25/robin-miller-who-captivated-race-fans-worldwide-dies-71/5194352001/
  13. It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (the 1963 original with Spencer Tracy and Ethel Merman)
  14. Jackson Browne is always good. He a tremendous artist all by himself, but when you add David Lindley and Rosemary Butler... It just blows your mind.
  15. While I have a great appreciation for the original, it's the 2003 remake that really got me. It has all the elements, assembled masterfully with details that may go unnoticed yet still provide the appropriate hook. The sounds of the rice paddy workers becoming the music for the opening credits is a good example.
  16. Opera is only truly appreciated in live performances or recordings of a performance you have seen. Without the visual aspect, it loses most of its meaning. Especially when sung in a language that you do not understand. You need the visual aspect to give emotional context to the the lyrics and vocal expression. Hearing it can be moving. But not nearly as much as putting facial expression to the vocals.
  17. Well, here's another great session for ya. Pay close attention the 2nd banjo player. (yes THAT guy)
