It's a key pinch style lift connected directly to a loading pin. I'll see if I have a video of it.

Can you provide the dimensions of The Payne?  I'll build one.  I need the top width, bottom width where it touches the base plate, and length, and height.

Deadline for signup will be Sunday November 3rd. This will give me enough time to get tshirts and awards.

I just paid.  Let me know if it went through.  Let me know if it went through.  Like a Boomer, i don't always trust the internet.

If you register, then you can peer pressure Rosendaul to come out!

Hello Saff. We met at Hillbilly Hand Wars.

I would really like to enter, but I'm not sure if I will be able to make it.

The axle and little bit horn will be sanctioned by GSI? I thought it had to be 4 attempts and not last man standing. That won't affect whether I attend, just curious.

Last man standing is now permitted by GSI.

What Eric said. Send me an email if you are still thinking about it. We can get something figured out.

Aside from the Silver Bullet, are the other events rising bar format?
