Re: Retiring from silhouette-FS in Pa.

Anytime I'm buying a wood stock gun I want a picture, the Cooper sounds interesting but who would ever buy one sight unseen when there's such a huge variation in the stocks?

Re: Smallbore in Colorado

As you can tell we don't have a common firing point, range safety dictates the targets are all in the same place safely behind that hill.
We move, gives us some exercise. :)

Re: Smallbore in Colorado

There's also a range/club at Lockheed Martin but you have to work there or know someone that does, another range in Sedalia but you have to know Gary or myself, ha ha.
Sedalia range.

Tikka T1x

D.I.P has finally completed the replacement base for the Tikka T1x, gone is that ugly shark fin base, makes a nice flat place to put your support hand/palm.

Re: Anschutz 1761, has that replace the 1712?

Sell the primo gun and buy a cheap gun so you can afford to practice a lot and get as good as you can with the lesser gun then buy another primo gun, in the long run it should only cost you an extra 8-900 for your genius plan! :-\

Regardless of your scores it matters almost as much how much you like shooting the gun, if your happy shooting a cheap gun sell the expensive gun to someone that appreciates workmanship in fine firearms.

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

The number dropped dramatically in 2009 probably due to the economy going in bottom of the tank, it's hard to say weather or not those people that dropped off then will return as the economy rebounds. As far as them being replaced by new people that's up to the recruitment department of which every ...

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

My truck thermometer read 108 for about 10 minutes today on a trip through Denver on I-25, in the high 90's at my place.

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

Back to the secondary thread drift: The typical deer hunter rifle in our area is a 7 mm Magnum or 300 Win Mag with a pencil thin barrel and scope and rings costing less than $200. Oddly enough I shot my first highpower silhouette match with a 264 win mag, once a year Gateway rifle and pistol had a ...

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

I believe a little history lesson is in order to shed some light for some and remind everyone else how we got to where were at today in hunting rifle class. What started the custom rifle craze for hunter gun was two different things, first was people changing internal parts on factory rifles improvi...

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

Bob, Can you please explain how modifying the rules to require everyone to buy two rifles and two scopes is more appealing to a new shooter than rules that allow everyone to compete with one rifle and one scope? If the thought of having to build a rifle to compete "intimidates" new shooters I don't...

I had chicken enchiladas last night smothered with green chile and a side of sour cream. The only thing missing was blue corn tortillas.
Your pissing me off now, Gary and I are expecting you show up with some authentic NM green chile btw.

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

If you wanted to save the silhouette game create a game specifically geared towards the AR guys. Silhouette is too boring for those guys. They want the run-and-gun, Afghanistan firefight, operator fantasy camp stuff. L-) Your probably right about this, the club I belong to has huge percentage of AR...

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

The hard pill to swallow is the military style AR-15 rifle has become the rifle of choice for todays shooters, M1A's and M14's were never that popular with civilians but the bolt guns and clones from WW1 andWW2 took the civilian market by storm after those wars. I can imagine there were lots of folk...

Re: Update on Nationals Numbers

I might point out that David Tubb used a Model 7 Remington in both divisions and won the Nationals in both divisions.......so much for the baseless theory that factory rifles are inaccurate with bad triggers I was referring to smallbore guns, sorry about not clarifying that. I've watched many a cas...
