we sure talk about big and important stuff here in mississippi
where's everybody at???
They're all hunkerin round grandma's air conditioner
Me? I spent the morning and most of yesterday fabricating Steel Challenge steel. Yes, it was hot!
Because of my (and several others ) efforts we will have 2 steel challenge stages at the July 28th ICORE match in Byram.
Yes, that will be a Saturday match. Will you and Amber make it?
Have a good 4th everybody!
you said 2 stages wow
yes we are going to do are best
happy 4th everybody
Oh, and Haras....If you try to say I'm gettin' old. I'm not listening!!!!
..............I.....shot the match yesterday!!!
Humidity, don't forget the humidity. It was 97 in Las Vegas on June 17, when Navin and I shot the match in 14% humidity. Sunday just about did most of us in here in Mississippi with the high humidity. I drained a Camelbak filled with ice and water before finishing the 2nd stage, and broke into the cooler on the 3rd stage.
It was so hot I even let Steven & Phillip sit in the vehicle with the AC running at the 3rd stage.
I suggest I try to get there earlier next month and help set up earlier, do you think we could try to start shooting at 8 AM to get away earlier.
Get's my vote.
Ask John H.
And, the humidity is making it hard to breathe....
HELL GETTIN' OLD AIN'T IT!
I'm STILL in my 30's!!!!
Hot's putting it nicely...
Everyone have a good 4th..We're taking the baby to see his great-grandmother in Texas...
Yeah but... you've come out of turn 4 and are headed for the checkered flag
Be safe and have fun!
I haven't even seen the half-way mark.
You, on the other hand....
think i will sit back and watch
I was looking forward to the ICORE match this month, sadly I'll be sitting on a beach in Hawaii, flying out of Jackson on the 27th. No worries, I get back the Saturday afternoon before August's (IPSC) match.
This past weekend I didn't get to Pearl till 4pm on Sunday, woke up that mornin at 5 to come to the match, decided sleep was more important.
Bought a SW 460, if I could find speed loaders for it, I'd use it for ICORE.
.460 is a tough gun. You're really gonna try to shoot that in ICORE?
No magnum calibers are allowed on our steel. Sorry. You'll have to save it for a bear hunt or something.
45 colt is legal eh? No different than 38 special in a 357 Mag. I'd figure that the 460 would be quite punishing to the steel, a 200gr @ over 2kfps.
For speed shooting, the 200gr Hornady load would suck, but it's hardly a thumper of a load. Recoil increases with heavier bullets they say, hopefully I'll get to reloading for it this week.
They had an airlite 44mag, that 26oz beauty would be a real thumper! Also an 8 shot airlite 357 snubby weighing 16oz I believe. The 460 is quite a blast to shoot, pun intended
I'd also think that the 5 shot would put me at a disadvantage capacity wise. I'd think 8 shot wheel guns aren't legal?
Looking forward to getting back down there
