But are the shotguns shells loaded on or off the clock.  I always thought that stoking the pumps would be fine on the clock in any match.  as long as all shells would be loaded on the clock it wouldn't make a difference if you load 2 at a time or 5 at a time.  but if the shotgun is staged loaded then that is different.  I'll just have to cope.

Shotshells are loaded off the clock.  I am almost sure somebody will have one you can borrow.

I am hoping I can get some .265 bullets in intime to shoot the Wild Bunch side match.

For contingency reasons, I have ordered .308  brass, bullets, & dies from Midway. Then I can at least have a 93 conversion (FR7) for the Wild Bunch match.

Well, it appears that after nearly a year of planning and wishing, I won't be able to attend.  Nor will the rest of the Indiana guys.  Dave, Tony, John and Bart have to work.  Bill and I can't afford the trip with just the 2 of us paying for gas.  I blame 99.9% of this failure on the petroleum prices.

And if this weren't enough, gas prices have risen nearly $0.50 per gallon because there MIGHT be some damage due to the hurricane.  I must be in the wrong business!  I mean, what other industry can get away with what the Big Oil companies do?  Back in the spring the cost of gas passed $131/barrel.  Last night it was just below $101/barrel.  That's nearly a 24% drop - but when the oil cost-per-barrel started going down did the retail price end up dropping the same 24%?  Of course not - it dropped a shade more than 10%, and that's all.  Now, the hurricane has caused some havoc down in the Gulf and the Oil Barons have zoomed the price back up "just in case" some of the refineries get damaged.  "Just in case!"  Bah Humbug !  Those thieves have us over a barrel and it's full of crude.  Top it all off with several of the largest companies reporting "record" profits.  Again.  It's a load of crap, and we're forced to eat it.
 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

And it's ruining my shooting and meeting old friends and friends I've not yet met!  (Now I've gotten to the REAL issue!  ;)  I was darn sure lookin' forward to eating at Del's Diner, too!  :(



Anyone between Indy and Ft. Hartstuff want to go in on a ride-share?

I can Sympathize with Jeff about the gas prices.  It is a little over 700 miles for me to come up to Neb. from Texas one way.  I haven't driven my pickup that far since I got it.  I hopin' that it will get about 20 mpg on the trip. I'll be comin' up there by myself. I have wanted to attend one of the Musters, so this may be my only opportunity to attend due the gas prices.  The SASS convention and NCOWS convention fall under the same catagory. The cost of Airline tickets are also a factor. It is unfortunate that economics have to come into play to put a dent in the activities that we enjoy and attend.

Indeed!  I wish I could get 20 mpg out of my pick-em-up.

I can feel for you guys as my  Mazda (read Ford Ranger dressed in noodles) PU gets a whopping 15 mpg no matter how you drive.
But then, I am taking my car (Buick) that gets between 31-35 loaded, again no matter how you drive it.  Michelle Torrence and I just love those "old people's" luxury cars.

My new PU is a GMC Sierra 1500 with a V6. I've never really checked the mileage on it and I have only driven it about 60 miles one way on a trip. This will be the first long trip in it. I plan on driving about 62 mph with the cruise control. My 99 Silverado has the 350 4 barrel V8 and it gets about 16 mpg. It's in good shape, I think the V6 will get better mileage.  I'm hopin' that 20 mpg is realistic.

I hope so, but don't hold your breath. I have 2 p/u's A 1987 K-10 with a 350 and 4 speed, and a 2003 S-10 4WD with a 4.3 auto. I haven't checked the '87 in years because it seldom leaves the farm and when it does it's pulling a trailer but it always used to get 15-16 mph. The S-10 usually gets around 17.  >:(

My 4-banger (2.3?) 1994 S-10 gets about 30 mpg when the aircleaner's new, running back and forth to work (16 mi. each way).  I haven't checked the mileage on a long-haul trip on the highway. After a few weeks, mpg drops to about 26.

My 750 Honda Shadow ACE gets about 55mpg - about 160 miles before going on reserve (2.9 gal).

On the otherhand, my '95 Tahoe 350 V8 gets maybe 18mpg on the higway on a good day, but about 8 when I'm towing my 26'camper.  (I learned the hard way about towing in O/D - going to the 2005 Muster in Garnett, by the way).

I'm splitting the difference, and the wife and I are driving our PT Cruiser (24 mpg) to Ord next week.

I was committed, too - I just couldn't broker the travel deal.  Dang fuel costs!  >:(

My wife tells me regularly that I should be committed.  ;)
