Wow, this may not be new to you all, but as a newbie who shhoots pistol and lever target events, I was thinking how good it would be to do IPSC pistol-type events with a lever action, and my club president tells me that the Brits (when their handguns were restricted) invented 'gallery rifle' which uses mostly pistol calibre lever action. I asked him, "how do they reload quickly enough??'. The answer is, WITH THESE....gotta get one for my 1894c in .357!!

Seen setup like this in several law enforcement competion shoots, they were made of heavy walled PVC pipe, seemed to work very well. Take care and just keep on keeping on, John.
Just keep on keeping on.
It's not what you do, it's how you do what you do, that counts.
