    :thumbsup: Cool! We already have shots fired!
    Got your PT Halftail. Purty good start. So far you're winning. :haha:

    Y'all can turn in your scores as early as you like, but there's no rush to enter, just make sure to PT me your scores by Labor Day. (I think the guys got how to do that covered. :thumbsup: ) Be sure you're happy with your target and it's the best you can do. Then tell me your score in a PT.

    Please don't post your scores here! I will post them all at the end of the contest. This way everyone will just be sooting against themselves, not trying to beat a known score. Also, some people wouldn't post their score at all if they weren't winning. I'm hoping to get lots of entries. :grin:

    Good to see a bunch of you guys have recovered from gettin' killed in the duel. :haha: And plenty of fresh competition showing interest too. :thumbsup:

    mykeal, I think you just need a new stock for that gun. Looks like the length of pull and the drop are both way too much, the breech needs to be inlet quite a bit deeper, and the fore end looks kinda blocky to me. :hmm:
    Send it to Roy. He can fix it. He fixed my .36 after I started workin' on it. :haha:

    I dunno, some folks think I have a pretty weird shaped body, so it might kinda fit...

    But yeah, I'd sorta been thinking it would look better with some curly maple, or perhaps even cherry. Maybe I could brown the barrel while I'm waiting for the stock...anybody have a couple of gallons of LMF they don't want? :grin:

    How much do you figure it would cost to ship?

    Yep. We'll give it a try. PA F&G just closed my range for "lead remediation" 'til Sept.18. So I gotta shoot in my yard.

    Sounds to me like the F&G guys are gettin' low on ammo. "Time to run some ball. Now where can we get some cheap lead?" :hmm:

    Well, maybe... :hmm: but ain't everything in Texas bigger? :haha:

    It don't really matter anyway 'cause you're gonna be measurin' from the center of the dot. Use a dime if ya want to (aim small, miss small). Heck, use a half-dollar if ya can't see a quarter at 25. In the end, center is still center. :thumbsup:
