    1. @Johnnie or Jim Scoutten or anyone else. What is the difference between this and the “Leather Slap” contests that used to be held?

    2. It’s fast draw with a safe round of wax in a 45 shell casing. There’s a shotgun primer that sends it downrange at close to 750 feet per second. The wax bullet hits a metal target with a sensor on it. It’s timed from the instant a light comes on in the center of the target and then you are pulling the 45, cocking it simultaneously, pulling the trigger and sending the wax bullet down range – hopefully hitting the target – from the hip. Fastest time hitting the target gets the win. It’s harder than you think.

    3. Michael. I’m not quite sure if I know what you’re referring to here? However, for an example, you could put a 44-40 or 44 magnum, in a rifle that was actually better known to be a revolver round, and then technically you could call that a rifle round. Of course, those are just two caliber examples of this, as there are many others that fit the bill as well. I suppose you could put a “rifle round”(i.e. 30-06 30-30 ect) in something like a Thompson Center Contender single shot pistol, and it truly would be better know as a “rifle round” even though it’s being shot in a hand gun However, if what you are talking about is the rifle round in that persons ammo belt, then I would compare that to Josh Randall – Steve McQueen of he series “Wanted Dead or Alive” who had a gun belt full of 45-70 rounds, even those he was using a Mare’s Leg which was designed for the 44-40 pistol round of that time. Go figure huh… In this case referring to the gentleman in the photo above, it would be anybody’s guess why he has a bottle neck style rifle round in his belt? Anyway, that’s just my take on this. .
