Re: What's with slow GTO?

Been wondering the same thing. Shooter friends tell me Bullseye is dead. No, not that Bullseye. CMP has killed Hardball. No, not me. The game requiring Hardball, with all the relaxed rules. Those of us with real Hardball achievements can stay proud. Users browsing this forum: Hardball and 0 guests ...

Re: Williams Fire Sights, almost

Good luck with the retirement, second time around. My FIL had to retire 3 times before it finally took around age 70, same with my own Dad except he farmed & raised cattle & horses. Dad finally rented out the crop land, then sold off the range cattle a few years later. Never could sell the horses, t...

Re: new to me mk1

IIRC, Gil Hebard used to sell grip panels for the RH left eye cross dominant 1911 shooters.

Bullseye's spot on. I've been a Hunter Ed instructor for over 20 years, every class I go through a eye dominance test with them. Cross dominance is much higher in females than males.

bluing

If you ever get a wild hair and want to try a cold rust bluing, keep this stuff in mind. I did a new Caspian wad gun and an older (rough shape MKII) with it this spring. Came out really good. far better than the Birchwood casey products, Brownells Oxopho bluing, or 44-40 I've tried in the past. http...

I'm thinking it's in the thought process. With no concrete plans for that big a change for at least the next 5 years. But changes do have to be made on the target turning equipment. Elevated shooting points and elevated target turners would be nice. Having a covered firing line would be really, real...

Perry

Well Bullseye, you missed a memorable one. Thursday, 22 day, was a miserable rainy mess. My point wasn't as bad as some, but muck boots were the order of the day. Some incredible scores were shot in spite of the wind & rain (not by me) Friday and Saturday were really nice. Fairly calm conditions and...

When it counts, like competitive match shooting, I only rely on Ultradot. Other brands seem to loosen up their intensity knobs and that is what typically causes intermittent dot presentations. R, Bullseye +1 I've been using UD's for well over 200,000 rounds, nearly 65,000 of those being 45's. I use...

I have a good drill press, but no mill. So I guess I could have used the press to keep things aligned. My issue is that you don't have the same "feel" when doing things with a press. And, all my tapping experiences have been by hand, I know what that feels like. I just wouldn't trust myself any othe...

Drilling & tapping

Well, I picked up 2 older MKII's. A 5 1/2" blue and a Stainless 5 1/2" 22/45. As they were older ones neither came drilled & tapped. so I ordered a couple Weigand bases and went to work. thanks for the drilling template Bullseye. I've done a few blued ones over the years, so no issues there. Just be...

If it's just built up fouling and lead deposits, just wrap a few strands of ''ALL COPPER'' Chore boy pot scrubber around a used 22 brush. Chuck it into the drill and give each chamber 10-20 seconds at low speed. Keep adding strands if it gets packed into the bristles. Very important to use an all co...

cupon

I don't remember ever seeing one either. But when I was checking out there was a section for a coupon code. So I figured I'd ask. On the plus side I finally found a MKII stainless 22/45. I've been looking for a good deal on one since taking my blued MKII on a canoe trip...With predictable results. R...

Thanks Bullseye!

The last one I did kind of Redneck (I say that with pride, cuz I are one), and just used the base as a template.

Wanted: Ruger MKII base

I thought I'd throw this out there before ordering one. I'm looking for a factory base for the MKII target. I picked up an older one that I intend on putting a Ultra Dot on after I drill & tap it. That way I have a back up for my backups backup. Anyone out there have a base lying around that they do...
