Oh, and about the Chabot-style Shoot.  "Rowdy Yates" says: 
  • The Chabot-like Shoot is 4 or 5 stages.
  • A miss is 10 seconds.
  • Chabot Mulligan Rules apply.  That means if you take a Mulligan, say good bye to your prior stage results, cause there ain't no taken 'em back if your Mulligan stage is worst than your first.
  • Take note:  This ain't no SASS shoot!  Targets are smaller and a little ... well, sometimes a lot ... farther out, and you can stoke your 97.
  • Did I say you can stoke your 97?!
  • Bring your real rifle, cause you just might have the opportunity to shoot it.

Cast Iron Skillet, anyone?  In case any of you need yet another reason everyone should own a Lodge 17" Double Handled Cast Iron Skillet ... Well, it makes a might fine vessel for drying your just cleaned brass shells in a low oven!  As "Rowdy" found out by using the Mrs.'s Lodge Skillet and parchment paper below.
