Thread: Livonia's next match...

    Livonia's next match...

    Livonia's next match...


    CYA friends:


    I stopped competitive shooting over 10 years ago...


    But I still love trying to advance rimfire accuracy.......more than competing, or anything else.



    I may try to get someone to shoot my new MD-PAS pistol at Livonia's next match.



    Your friend, Bill Calfee

    Howdy Bill,
    I don't think you will have any trouble getting someone to shoot that pistol!

    Take care,

    I just came from the range......


    Greg I agree, a lot of folks would love to shoot this pistol...


    But, I want a "player" to shoot it.....

    PS:


    Greg, the sport of RFBR is ready for something new and fresh.

    And this pistol represents that.



    A lot of folks would love to shoot it; I'd love to shoot it, but that simply isn't going to happen.


    This pistol is as serious as any RFBR rifle on Earth....


    I want a "player" to shoot it for that reason.

    Howdy Bill,
    I don't think you will have any trouble getting a SERIOUS player to shoot that pistol!

    Shucks, you might even end up with someone coming to the match for the express purpose of shooting that pistol. I'm looking forward to hearing about who turns up and how they do with it. After the match of course. That'd be a ton of pressure on someone...........but you have a lot of people who shoot your rifles and pistols who are accustomed to pressure.

    I have enjoyed following along with the progression on this project!

    Take care,

    Greg

    Thank you.....


    A bunch of folks are interested in these pistols, just like they were during the first pistol revolution.



    Greg, the Broughotn 4-groove I have on my new MD-PAS pistol is not the barrel I intended when I started this project.


    It happened to be threaded, chambered and fit, with no extractor slots, which made it easy for me to quickly fit it to my new pistol so I could shoot it without fitting a new barrel from scratch.


    I had to profile it down to .800", which straightened this very crooked barrel up......the bore itself always seemed straight to me.


    The barrel was used for a spearment years ago, which didn't turn out too well as the thing just shot so-so, so I couldn't determine if my spearment had potential, or not.


    So when I turned it down I really didn't expect too much.......


    And then something funny happened on the way to the Forum.


    This so-so barrel actually shot!



    And I've not even post chamber lapped it after distorting the bore from the re-profiling.


    I want to see it all.............


    Therefore, do I spend time casting a lap and post chamber lapping this Broughton?


    Or, do I spend my time fitting a new barrel?


    Your friend, BC

    Duck Hawk and the Earharts..


    CYA friends:


    I was talking to Wally, and he told me that Duck Hawk, and the Earhart clan, did some outstanding work this past Saturday and Sunday at Livonia.



    CYA is not a match results site....


    But in this case, you ain't going to see these results on any of the other sites......cause it looks like TCA's dominated.....like they've done for the past 20 plus years...



    Be as it may......


    Congratulations to the Earhart folks and Duck Hawk....

    Thanks Mr. Calfee. Tim shot good like he always does and Tad and Carrie did good to. Livonia is tough but I really like the place. Its really hard to find a condition to rely on and it dont stay around long. It was a little warm too.
