Ok, now we are tracking. My Dad built a 40-60 barn for that. Then he made 1/3 of it an efficiency apartment with reloading room with room for play toys. He also says it’s his dog house when he is in trouble. Lets face it, we don’t grow out of toys, they just get more expensive.

This is the type of fun which you have been wanting to do for some time. You also have the rig to be very competitive.

Re: Specialty Handgun Competition

Rich called me yesterday to tell me that he has changed his mind on the weight for the production class SP's.
The weight class for production class is now set @ 7.5 pounds or under.
Everything else remains the same.
