Hi Folks.
I have finally joined the forum after two tries and being a 'lurker' for a while. My main interest is NRA Action Pistol (Bianchi) and have shot the Cup approx 10 times with varying degrees of success. I own four 1911s, all in 38 Super. My STI based Open gun, a Colt Metallic Sight gun, a retired Les Baer Open gun with a cracked rail and an Auto Ordnance bitza I am building up as a 'spare' open gun.
My current Open and Metallic guns run a 'front block system using a bush fixed to the frame. I have been a stockmaker for 30 years and still dabble although I am supposed to be retired. I have a 3 in 1 machine but just required a bench top mill so I can retire the POS one on the combination machine.
Looking forward to catching up with you guys on the forum and you never know I might actually meet some of you at the Cup.

Glad to see a Bianchi guy here. My friend, Benito Martinez won the last World match down there. We hope to send him for a repeat this year

Thank you for your warm welcome.
Chuck, I met Benito and his friend LT while they were down here and got on well with them. Shot with him at our National Champs and at the World Shoot. Give him 'Coatesy's' regards next time you see him.
Don't know where the next World Shoot will be, as the NRA Pistol Division seems to be imploding at the moment.
