 :) PLUS ONE for the Deacon  ;)

My reading results are same same.  Primary targets were tin cans on a fence rail and empty bottles.  Paid no attention to broken glass laying around.

Pay Safe Out There

What, where is everyone at it's morning.   ;D

All those years of pretty much being on second shift I seem to have switched while gone, not sure if it will last because it makes no difference.

Riley is not happy, he glares at me, gets up and goes to the couch, glares at me and goes back to sleep till about 10.  Poor guy has lived that schedule most of his life.  Often don't go to bed with me ad someone let's him in later.

Do tend to nap in the afternoon if nothing is going on. ::)

There you go  :)  Dave did nice work with ASM's

At one time I had decided I'd like to have one example of each of the then available custom makers.
I was nearly there, the only one I never obtained was John Gren..

I had the afore mentioned "Anderson USPFA Shot Show prototype" (ASM) that gun was used extensively in NCOWS matches. Sadly, it's whereabouts now unknown the owner passed in 2021.

My Millington example was a thin plate Remington on a Euroarms donor,
  I also had your first Uberti thick Plate Remy conversion, do you recall that trade?  I sold both of those.

The Strite Navy conversion I had was from his Eagle Pass days before he moved and teamed with Walt Kirst in Texas. I traded it away after I got over the notion of the collection. 

I still have the Kenny Howell 1st Model Richards
 and my Gary Barnes Navy conversion.

I never heard of "Cramer" except on Jerry Steinfeld  ;D

It was a blast to meet so many fellow Krag enthusiasts!!  I was thinking of starting a support group for krag owners... how many did we have in all?

Internally it is facially similar to a Smith & Wesson single action, but with differences.  The most obvious difference is the spring that applies pressure to the hand--it's very lightweight and goes around the axis of the hammer as opposed to the stiff spring that is inlet into the face of a Smith & Wesson hammer and pinned in place.

Tin cans and playing cards were both common. Also, bottles were plentiful.
Oh, and I do remember that poker chips could be used.

The shoots down at Western were a blast (expensive, but loads of fun)!  There was always at least one match that looked at a past shooting question, and when you put 50-100 serious shooters on it, you can get a better idea of how things may have gone.  Krags v. 1903s was one.  Another time we did the Hickok-Tutt shooting.  No one was able to pull off Hickok's shot using a Colt's Navy, but several shooters made the shot with an 1860 Army.
