Target & Plinking / 100 Yard Pistol Shooting
« on: June 28, 2015, 11:56:18 AM »
Just got back from the Spring Nationals at Friendship Indiana. I decided to shoot the 100 yard
pistol match. Well let me tell you, that target looks mighty small at 100 yards. I won 1st place
with my score of 81 X  Second place was a score of 70.. I used my little 32 caliber Caplock using
15 gars Swiss FFF, Hornady "0" Buck. I'm 72  and hope this might give hope to any of you old
farts out there.  I shot this with one hand un-supported.

This was shot at the Nationals at Friendship two weeks ago. It was shot using the one hand hold.
I did not shoot it. I just happend to be walking by and seen it being shot by my old friend Peter
from England. Just had to get a picture . I know what he uses. He is about 67 or so. He does this
all the time.

Target & Plinking / Results From The Nationals
« on: June 23, 2014, 02:42:52 AM »
Just got in from the 11 hour drive from the 81st NMLRA Nationals held at Friendship Indiana..
Attendance was up from last year. Thousands of people. Wife won the Women's Pistol Championship for the 10th time. I got second in the "As Issue" Revolver Championship and second
in the Replica Revolver match. My old Euroarms 44 came thru for me. Had a great time.  Going to
bed now.

Well in my 50 years of being in this game, I have had several brands.  I have had all of them
apart doing things like lighter trigger pulls and replacing stuff when it breaks. All of the inside
parts look like stamp metal. Except one. And that is the one I bought about two years ago for
85.00.  I had just finished shooting the "As Issue" matches at the Nationals at Friendship In.
and I was sitting at a picnic table next to the range. I took it completely apart. I used to work in
a tool & die shop for 20 years in quality control so I know what good machining looks like. Well
the hand, trigger, and bolt all looked they were machined . I have never seen anything like it.
Either someone did machine these parts, or it came from the factory like this. What kind is it
your asking. Well it is the Euroarms made in 1974. How did I do you ask. Well I won two 1st place
gold medals. It does shoot and had a very light 1 1/2 lb. target trigger. I don't know if all Euroarms
made in the early 70's are like this or not. Never have seen another one. If any of you have one
let me know. There is a picture of it in the thread up a little. I did the de-fared and the antique

I have a Euroarms 1858 that was made in 1974. It's chambers are .450    The groove dia of the barrel in .450 also. The
chambers are champered.

I shot this at the Nationals at Friendship about three years ago. I was about 67 at the time. This
is 10 shots at 50 yds. The rules say one hand hold un-supported. This was with my little .36
Remington. Yes it won 1st place.

Introductions / Hello From Kansas City Mo
« on: December 08, 2013, 12:35:42 AM »
Name is Phil. Live in Excelsior Springs Mo, but nobody would know where that's at, so Kansas City.
Excelsior Springs is 25 miles NE. Been shooting Black Powder revolvers for over 50 years. I am
71, so The Old Man.  Been shooting at Friendship for over 25 yrs. Shot there this summer in June.
Been married to a hell of a shot Paulette for over 30 yrs. We have a daughter Halie who shoots
also. She is 15. Just comming into that awkward age. My right eye is about gone, so I can't see
to shoot rifle anymore, but I still shoot pistol. Won my share at Friendship thru the years. Even won the "As Issue" revolver Championship in June. Wife has won the Women's Pistol  National
Championship 9 times. Including this year. Daughter won the Sub-JR's when she was 10, and won
the Jr Championship when she was 13. This is not to brag, but to avail myself to the members of
the Fourm to ask me any questions you might have. There is nothing wrong with tin can shooting.
So you don't have to be a great shooter to have fun. That is the name of the game, Have Fun!
I realize also that not all really good shooters shoot at Friendship either. Lots of really Excellcent
Shooters just never make it there for one reason or another. So, hope you will accept me and if I
can help with something don't hesitate to ask.
