Man the current Stangs have both OHV and OHC engines?OHV motor :lol:
I mean, OHC works great if its a 4cyl honda that wants to rev to 8-9k but not for something like this that you would want gobs of low end up off idle torque, and spinning it to 6k or whatever still shouldnt be to big of a problem...but I doubt ford would put decent parts in it to do that.
Yeah, it's tough when your eyes start to go. I thought about going with a scoped pistol but they're not legal in a lot of classes. I'll turn 66 in January of 08 and have had no trouble with my eyes at all until 3 years ago when I had cat. surgery on my left eye. About 6 months after the surgery the implant fogged up and had to be repaired. After that I had a retina detach and three surgeries later they got the retina anchored but it left my eye with areas that I can't see through. Because of the strain of trying to make up for the weak eye the other eye had started to go. The Dr. said that I will probably never be completely blind but that was before I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes which has hastened the deterioration of my vision. I used to reload all my ammunition, do my own gunsmith work, and shoot Sporting clays, Trap, Skeet, Large and Smallbore rifle, Sniper Training, Paper Targets, Combat, Bowling Pins and Fast Draw. I've got literally hundreds of pieces of equipment for reloading, gunsmith tools, Targets, Powder, Primers, Bullets, Shot, Wads, Hulls, Cases, Shotguns, Rifles, Revolvers, Semi-autos, etc. If you know anyone in the game give them my name and tell them it's all for sale.Hey Snake 42, I`ve just turned 43 yrs old and had to get me a set of them there spectacles this past year, it helped my shooting, but now I`m worried that when I start hitting my "golden" years that it won`t be enough. Guess I`ll have to make hay while the sun is still shining.
I shoot IPSC, IDPA, PPC, Bullseye (occasionally), some silhouette, plus shooting plates at the gun club for fun.
The gun in the avatar is my personal favorite, it`s a Les Baer Concept III with a S&A magwell custom fitted by yours truly, plus I slapped a pair of tulip wood grips on it and lightend up the sear spring a hair to get about a 1 3/4 lb pull, still safe and reliable. I`ve been shooting competitively for about 15 years now, and love it just as much as when I started. With my reloads (Dillion square deal) it will shoot a ragged one holer off of sandbags if I`m having a good day. Les Baer claims it will shoot 1 1/2'' at 50 yds with a ransom rest, but I`d have to see it for myself to believe it.
I shoot this gun in IPSC , IDPA, and PPC (semi auto class) mostly.( yes I know that the trigger doesn`t make the weight for PPC, but I`m usually the only one shooting semi auto class anyway)
Sorry to hear of your eyes going south on you, at our club it is mostly the older generation that is showing up, I wish more young folks would take an active interest in this outstanding sport. It has to be at least as much fun as them video games.
