In two days of shooting cut rifle barrels win 5 matches without paying any extortion money.How did this happen?

Mel, just a wild guess, but maybe those shooters didn't want to pay the excessive "Import Tax" that's accessed on any barrels from Borden. Again, it's just a guess! Thumper

Thumper Those barrels were right out of the box ,No import or switch barrel tax.

Mel, it sure is great to see that winning barrels can be produced and installed without the wave of the "magical Doodlestick" that exists only in the above mentioned domain! I feel better already! Thumper

How can that be? I thought the oracle had decreed that it would never be so.

Extortion is a funny old racket! Great, if you can make it work. But you have to keep at it to stay ahead of the posse. Sit back and try to rest on your laurels and the G men will eventually have you surrounded. You get plenty of time to daub a few inane water colors whilst waiting for the warders to come and toss your cell.

Congrats to Greg Davis, I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of those barrels on the line.

Oh well I guess he's just obsessed

It's sad and pathetic what is happening over there on RA in that bogus thread titled "Barrel Question". We watched a legend self-destruct over there and now we'll witness the madness of a couple people actually having bogus conversations with themselves. Didn't their Mommas tell them that what they are doing over there can make them go blind?

Thunnus thynuss.....the bluefin tuna is the largest tuna in the sea.......that is a good thing. God forbid it be Cyprinus carpio......the Carp. LOL. Best of luck folks on trying beat ole Calfee on the other side. He has protection that compares to no other in the internet world. Good or bad, I don't really know yet.......but either way, if winning costs everything....then we are all a step behind.....or 2....or 3.......

Carp

p.s. I keep my friends close to me....my enemies closer (from the Godfather of course). I have found nothing more than the simple thing of confidence as a deciding factor in head to head competition. Mr. Eck is getting very, very close on the confidence part of his customers....from the outside looking in, I see nothing but a sea of Eck winners in the future in Sporter Competition.

John ......You can hear both sides here .....I don't think anyone cares except to try and stop the slander......We have all shot matches and won and lost and a great deal of it is the shooters job......Guess some people will never grow up

Come on Buskey ,Tell the truth, you`ve been reading those Livonia post and wishing she was giving you some Head Cheese instead of Calfee. And it could make you go blind! Yall do like to beat a Calfee don`t you? I noticed Mel posted 0n that thread 2 times and deleted it or did he .

I'm not slandering anyone......especially the shooters.....I'm one of them and we have that in common. Won some lost many....at least in my book. There are some that will not progress to the difinitive ability to say that MANY guns work and MANY gunsmiths build GREAT guns....no matter who thought or said they developed some technology. There is no MAGIC GUN! There is no MAGIC GUN! There is no MAGIC GUN! This is not directed at you, Jim. It is directed to those that think there is.

10-03-2011, 10:44 PM
And Jim, I can take what I can throw......3 out of 4 ARA club matches in the last 30 days can tell me that I can tell you that There is no MAGIC GUN! My gun can shoot 5 shot groups routinely in the 0.175" center to center in good conditions. It cannot, however, shoot in the 0.099" or less...ever! Most of the time it shoots 0.250" or abouts in a match while fowling with 6 shots and the 6th shot never widens the group. If my gun were MAGIC......then I'd win every match I entered....just like I'd like to.

Carp

p.s. 0.250" center to center is not a five shot group that could produce all 100's!

Mel,
That is a good one! I get what you mean....I think. Trombones and tubas are sounding quite a lot out of my ear range. I just wear ear plugs anyway. Things are achangin' in the world of rimfire and it isn't the equipment.

Mel ,Greg must have done that ,he drinks Frozen Ale 8`s with Indexman and is obcessed at covering him , I have asked wally to mussel him some ,there for a while he was deleting everything I posted,and he don`t even shoot BR. Tim and I was the Decalfinators and that is needed, found out Livonia don`t get deleted since she don`t exist. Greg is a good guy , just over doses the protection of opposing views of BC

Mel,
You are between a rock and a hardplace unless you talk to other barrel manufacturers. I wonder what Lawton paid to Remington for cloning their action that probably was patented? Just wondering also about what Baity's paid Flash when making bolts? Just wandering can lead to meltdown and epiphany...just not necessarily in that order.

Barney probably paid what all these guys making CNC centerfire 700 knockoffs pay, Zero.

It's good to have an opposing point of view, I didn't know on blog's it's my way or the highway. I guess the gang of 9 are incompetent and unworthy to challenge nonsense.As for fake names it isn't hard to figure it out now is it. People hide to protect their insecurities and boost there ego. But in the end it's up to the reader to form an opinion this is American and we are free to believe what we want.

Hi Guys,

I rarely visit the other board. I know I am missing a laugh or two. It seems EGO is running amok over there. Every time I visit that board my BP spikes! Thankfully freedom of speech is sill practiced on this board

I have sold my "Kathy" built sporter. Just did not enjoy shooting it anymore. Next year I will be a proud owner of a Gordon built Sporter. You know, the ones with one of those cut rifle bbls that won't shoot? Then I can join TEAM ECK!

Out of idol curiosity how many of those winning barrels came with 6o'clock FP's?

They were all won with Copperheads with both 12 and 6 o'clock ignition.

I got one from Jerry for Greg out of the small batch he ran this summer I think it was around 10 or so with a different style bolt handle I think, and a trigger hanger in it. We wanted to get one in the hands of a top shooter using a Copperhead and a new 6 groove so we could really see how they would do, because obviously, how I shoot, ain't gonna tell nobody nothing about the actions or barrels true capability. I think my nickname should be "middle of the pack Paul". ;)

Thanks Paul, Mike Plaxco got one of those also, Seven Ring sounds better than Mid Pack Paul, since I shoot ARA Mine could be Minus Fifty. Stiller is being held hostage by Kiff ,instead of Armageddon,his should be Dances with Dave or Kiff`s Revenge.
