Madame Moog and I made through IRMA with no major damage. The cleanup was faster than getting power back on though. The storm cancelled the AJR match and The Lake County Pistoleros match as well as people were still recovering. I had booked a trip to Pennsylvania to shoot with my dad at his local match but the first flight was canceled. We cleaned up and Madame Moog rebooked my flight so I did get to shoot last weekend. The Titusville PA Sportsman Club has challenging match once a month. The ...

The day started out normal, picked up Shelleen and headed out to the Wewahootee Vigilance Committee’s monthly match. It was guess what, HOT, again, in Florida who would have thought it. Overcast for the first 4 stages and sun shining for the last 2. If you don’t know, there is nothing like leaving your long guns on the loading table in the Florida sun before you shoot the stage. Your guns get a little toasty. At least it didn’t rain on us. The match started out normal, however it ended a litt...

This past Sunday I shot with the Roughshod Raiders in Gainesville Florida. And it was as one of the starting lines was “Hot and Sticky”. It rained about 90% of the way to the range then stopped long enough for us to get in 6 stages and then it started again. It’s a bit of a drive for me but riding with my shooting buddy Shelleen made the trip go by faster, we talk about what we have been doing for practice, who John Snow is and stuff like that. We got to the range and set up our carts did our...

This past weekend I shot at the Lake County Pistoleros monthly match. After 4 weeks of no shooting the rust had built up a little. It was warm when we started and got hotter from there. But at least this range is shaded. The stages were well written and fun to shoot. Some of the starting line made the Posse Marshall blush ad we all got a laugh out of that. My first stage i think i was ready for it, 21 seconds. I had a couple 20 second stages, still trying to shoot sub 20 second stage and it f...

It sure has been a while since i blogged here. But moving forward on the site and app has sparked today's blog. Some of you may know that I attended EOT for the first time. Those that don't know End Of Trail is the Cowboy Action Shooting World Championship. Held this past June in Edgewood New Mexico. A couple firsts here I guess, first trip to NM too. Let me tell ya, we had fun. People had me worried about a few things like the altitude, seeing I'm a sea level person and the heat. Neither really...

I shot this past weekend at The Lake County Pistoleros, what a good match. The range is nice and shaded in the summer to try to beat the heat but it was still hot. I shot ok for me stages hovering around 22 or 23 seconds and 3 misses for the entire day, even though I think I had 3 on 1 stage but spotters only called 2. Sometimes it works out that way. a good bit of the shooters on my posse were shooting raw times of like 14 to 16 seconds, that made me feel a little slow. But, I played my game an...

Sunday started out nice and cool and warmed up by the time the lead started flying at the Doddle Hill Regulators monthly match. Everything started off well even though I had 1 miss on the first 2 stages I was playing the game I showed up to play. I have been trying to get faster by thinking about and cleaning up my transitions and running the guns a little harder. That was working, I had 22 and 24 seconds with 1 on each. I was really happy with the 24 second stage because that stage I also misse...
