  1. I was thinking that as well. Leupold Delta Point on it would work well.
  2. That is the debate I have going on in my head.
  3. Funny you say this as that is what I have him shooting right now. The 22/45 is a killer gun and I totally agree with you on it. I just am at the point of wanting to move to 9.
  4. I also am concerned about something that I can get a nice crisp light trigger in. The kid is just skin and bones.
  5. So after taking a 10 year hiatus from USPSA I started shooting again and now my 10 year old wants to join me. I took him to watch Tuesday Night Steel at Rio Salado last night and he loved it. So now I need to decide on a gun and gear for him. Obviously I will get him comfortable with the process etc before going to a match but I wanted to know what people use for guns on this. He is 10 but light, like 70 pounds. I don't really care if I have to buy something or care about costs. I was thinking a G34. But then I got thinking about a shorty open gun shouting 9 minor, initially. Does anyone use open, or other comped guns to reduce recoil? My concern there is that the gun is too heavy.

    RIP Stoney

    Sorry to hear it.
  7. There is something special walking out of a pound with a dog. You know that you most likely saved its life. I think that they also know it.
  8. I notice this behavior pretty much anytime there is a woman at the range. The older guys have to help the poor defenseless female.
  9. Thanks all and thanks for the cyclone for the links. Near as I can tell the firm I linked sounded legit and their fees, all inclusive for a simple US patent,(I think mine's simple) is around $5000. So if they deliver as promised maybe that's not bad. Dont be fooled by their pricing. Read farther down the page. The 5K is to file. That is not the whole picture. A response to an office action is 2-4K. If you find me a patent that the USPTO did not make you respond to at least 1 office action then it was a poorly written patent. Common is two office actions. Now you are at the 10K level. Here is patent 101 for your benefit. Your attorney's job is to write your patent as broad as possible so that it covers as much as possible to catch all infringers. The patent office's job is to narrow your patent as small as possible. After you file then send in an "office action" which is an objection or rejection, of all or part of your patent, including subparts and specific claims. Your attorney then responds or edits the patent application to deal with the office action. This can occur multiple times during the process.
  10. Jeeper,

    My cell number is (602) 570-2606, but it might be easier to reach me at my office at (602) 867-2121. If you get my office manager just tell her it's shooting/patent related and she'll do her best to put you right thru to me. I'd like to hear what you have to say about the patent process and who you might recommend.

  11. I knew there were some other patent attorneys on this site beyond myself. Coincidentally I also live in Phoenix. I don't do patents anymore but am still licensed and I teach a few classes each year at U of Arizona's engineering school on patents. PM me your number and I will talk to you about the process and so forth and refer you to someone if you need it.
  12. Sorry Trapr, As somone who had to put down two dog this year that I had for 15 years, I know your pain. I met Scout at many matches and you are a lucky guy to have such a good dog. This are my favorite quotes. I explained it to St. Peter, I'd rather stay here Outside the pearly gate. I won't be a nuisance, I won't even bark, I'll be very patient and wait, I'll be here, chewing on a celestial bone, No matter how long you may be. I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone, It wouldn't be heaven for me. The Last Battle If it should be that I grow frail and weak And pain should keep me from my sleep, Then will you do what must be done, For this -- the last battle -- can't be won. You will be sad I understand, But don't let grief then stay your hand, For on this day, more than the rest, Your love and friendship must stand the test. We have had so many happy years, You wouldn't want me to suffer so. When the time comes, please, let me go. Take me to where to my needs they'll tend, Only, stay with me till the end And hold me firm and speak to me Until my eyes no longer see. I know in time you will agree It is a kindness you do to me. Although my tail its last has waved, From pain and suffering I have been saved. Don't grieve that it must be you Who has to decide this thing to do; We've been so close -- we two -- these years, Don't let your heart hold any tears. This Youtube is also really good
  13. After taking my 6 year old shooting for the first time he also wanted to load some ammo. He is a little short to do it but got the hang of it loading some 7.62x39.
  14. I finally got organized and set up my reloading equipment. It had all been sitting in a box for the last five years. It was depressing seeing it in my garage. I haven't shot much since I moved back to phoenix but have decided to get back into it more. I even went last night and shot Tuesday steel. And since I have that new 38 super that I posted about in the other thread, it was great timing to get this all set up. The new loading area is no where as nice as the old one but it will do. I weled up the strongmount for the one 650 and the rockchucker myself instead of paying $50 for one. $3.00 of steel and an hour or so of work is a better deal. The normal strong mount is also not tall enough to put it in a cabinet with closing doors since the arm hits the table.
  15. After not having any of my stuff set up for the last 5 years, I finally got around to it. Here is the last setup Here is the one before that
