I found it somewhat amusing that some young guys I didn’t recognize attended and frequently talked about their hardware. Which manufacture was better, which caliber, etc. They all shot semi-autos. Roger W, when shooting a revolver, had stage times which were approximately one-half of theirs. I’m not sure that lesson really sunk in for them. But one of them did comment that they didn’t have to pick up nearly as much brass after I shot as when they shot.

The hardware makes a difference but it’s the meatware that wins or loses.
