    At the 2019 Western Divisional I was awarded a JEDI Gunfighter buckle. Nasty Nels was the presenter and when he gave it to me I told him that sometime in the future I would build a gun cart to display it on and this is what I came up with. Widder helped me get another buckle out of Korrupt Karl because I like displaying the original on my gun belt. Double Diamond (Darrell Brinkmeier) designed and built all of the leather work and spent days working on the leather Josey Wales medallion on the front of the chest and did an absolutely amazing job. The cart is built out of African Black Limba lumber with through dovetails, sliding dovetails and mortise and tenon joinery. I used my Lichtenburg fractal burner to enhance the exterior of the cart and sides of the trays and sub trays. Double Diamond even carried the fractal burning affect onto the cup holder liners. The trays are set up to hold match necessities in a somewhat orderly manner and the double sub trays work well for holding tins with Magna tip bits, gun parts and other match incidentals. Below the sub trays is room for lubricants, more tools, car keys, etc... In the bottom of the chest is a divided bin that holds eight leather loading strips in an upright position. Pull one strip out and use it and put it back in its place and pull another, that system worked out pretty well on another cart that I built not to long ago. There is also room for my soft sided ice chest and shotgun ammo or other match needs around the ice chest.

    Sorry, but I need to vent!!!! I experienced the WORST customer service today. I don't want to mention the name of the shop because I'm not sure how I'm going to proceed. Last night I bought something from this shop. I paid cash for it. I took it home and found out it didn't work. So today, less than 24 hours later I took it back to the shop and asked if I could get a refund. The girl in the store told me “NO” even though I still had the receipt. I asked if I could get a replacement instead then. Again this person told me "NO." I asked to talk to a manager now as I'm really not happy and I explained that I had just bought the item, had got it home and it didn't work. The manager just smiled and told me to my face that I was "OUT OF LUCK." No refund. No FREE replacement. Grrrrrrrrr. . I''ll tell you what...I am NEVER buying another Lottery Ticket from there again.

    First off, I would like to thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, and good wishes. Momma is still in the hospital. She went in Wednesday for a heart valve replacement. The proceedure was to take two days at the most if everything went well. Be home by thursday. Well, they hit a snag and she was not able to come home yesterday nor today. I just spoke to her on the phone, and she is sounding much better than she did yesterday. I just wish to express my gratitude to all you good folks out there in cowboy land. God bless you all.

    After 28 years and three months my tenure at the law firm has ended. On January 1, 2021 I will be self employed running my own law office out of my home. I'm unemployed until then. I can't believe how big a jackass my new boss is going to be.

    Received my SASS membership renewal in the mail, $65. Wish I went life 21 years ago but with four mouths to feed, mortgage, car and general life I didn't have the money. 21 years ago I'm thinking membership was $25 or $30. Last few years I've debated, specially since it's been a few years since I've attend a State or above match. BALDERDASH! I've made up my mind! Went online I paid for a life membership. Assuming no rate increases in the the next 12.3 years I'll break even when I'm 79 years old. Merry Christmas to the Staff at SASS headquarters! So in the next years you see me tottering around at a match with 5 or 6 minute stage times you know I'm doing my best to get to my membership break even point!

    The last gusty day we had finally took its toll on our flag, and, frankly, I had waited about six months too long because of fading. Took it down Tuesday. Wife ordered a new one Friday night. It arrived about noon. Has the tangle free pole. Got the bracket up, grabbed the flag mounted on the pole, grabbed my phone, played Morning Colors as I put it in the socket.

    A vet up in Denver had his 100th birthday yesterday and his neighbors arranged a little parade for him. He served in Wyoming’s 115th Cavalry. They were Federalized in 1940 and served mostly along the Northwest coast during the war. Many of the opted for combat assignments. The first man ashore at Utah beach was a former 115th officer. Here’s a great photo of the 115th at Ft. Lewis Washington in ‘42.

    I only shot 3 or 4 matches last year, none of them were big matches. I still felt like I got my moneys worth. I intend to pay my yearly dues again without knowing how many matches I will be able to attend. Heck, I'm just proud to tell people that I'm a member of SASS. ..........Widder

    MODIFICATION APPLICATIONS APPROVED - 2020 18 FEB 2020 MOD: Replacement of original metal magazine tube with one made of carbon fiber. PURPOSE: If the magazine tube receives a blow from the outside, it cannot dent. 17 SEP 2020 MOD: Replacement of 1873 loading gate with an 1866 type PURPOSE: Rounds are easier to load into the magazine “and specially ladies don’t break their fingernails anymore.” 11 NOV 2020 MOD: Installation of an internally-adjustable set screw on the carrier arm of 1873 lever. PURPOSE: Easier to adjust the timing of broke-in, worn, changed parts, etc. than spot-welding metal to the surface where material is needed (which is current practice). Negates the need for welding equipment to make necessary adjustments. 09 DEC 2020 MOD: Replacement of slotted magazine tube end cap on 1866 & 1873 rifles with a knurled “tool-less” version. PURPOSE: Easy to remove at unloading table in case rounds have to be removed from tube; no tools needed; and the shooter avoids hand being in front of the muzzle in case a live round is still in the chamber.

    This is going to probably be an unpopular answer but here goes. Classic Cowboy is a COSTUME based category. I can't ever fathom why someone chooses a category that emphasizes costuming then they try to do it with as little as possible. Go all out or go home. Classic Cowboys rule.

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/how-bullwinkle-taught-kids-sophisticated-political-satire-180964803/ Mr. Chairman, I am against all foreign aid, especially to places like Hawaii and Alaska,” says Senator Fussmussen from the floor of a cartoon Senate in 1962. In the visitors’ gallery, Russian agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale are deciding whether to use their secret “Goof Gas” gun to turn the Congress stupid, as they did to all the rocket scientists and professors in the last episode of “Bullwinkle.” Another senator wants to raise taxes on everyone under the age of 67. He, of course, is 68. Yet a third stands up to demand, “We’ve got to get the government out of government!” The Pottsylvanian spies decide their weapon is unnecessary: Congress is already ignorant, corrupt and feckless.

    A Salute to Ensign Jane Kendiegh. The First Nurse on the Front Line of Iwo Jima Checking over her kit of medical supplies is Ensign Jane Kendiegh, USNR, a Navy flight nurse, as she flies from a base in the Marianas to the Iwo Jima battleground, aboard a Navy transport plane, March 6, 1945. Miss Kendiegh was the first navy flight nurse to set foot on a battlefield at 22 years old. The evacuation mission lasted until March 21, 1945. These brave women were able to rescue and attend to 2,393 marines and sailors. When Kendeigh returned to the US, she participated in a War bond drive. Shortly after, she was requested to return to the Pacific. On April 7, 1945, Kendeigh landed and served at the Battle of Okinawa. She was the first flight nurse to arrive at Okinawa. Jane also served on battlefronts in Marianas and Hawaii. After the war, Jane returned to Lorain, Ohio. She married Lt. Robert Cheverton, USN, an air-evac Pilot, on February 14, 1946. They had 3 daughters. Jane continued to pursue her nursing career after leaving the Navy, and was well thought of in the San Diego Medical Community Jane died from cancer in 1987 in San Diego. She was 65 years old.

    Well done! And as far as the woman who proclaimed your lack of "social awareness," I might have clearly explained to her that if the woman had a legitimate need (ill child, for example), she could have simply asked and all would have gladly stepped aside for her. And that, Madam, is what "social awareness" is truly about.

    I haven’t had to but I have. Years ago I mailed several checks to a certain political party here in Kaleepornia for a few cents each. I heard a big time party committee member complaining on dons talk show how much it cost them to cash and process checks. It was something like $20 per check. I sent them about a dozen 5 cent donations to help alleviate some of the cost burdens they were seeing. I was just trying to help.

    And then there is this: The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they should not interfere with God’s divine will. At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistry and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week. The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later, the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water-slide. The Episcopalians tried a much more unique path by setting out pans of whiskey around their church in an effort to kill the squirrels with alcohol poisoning. They sadly learned how much damage a band of drunk squirrels can do. But the Catholic church came up with a more creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter. Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven’t seen a squirrel since.

    Sorry guys but elbow to trigger just doesn't work for the ladies and kido's. The crook of the elbow to the trigger method is a good method for skeet and other games where the gun is already mounted and you don't have to work the action. Doesn't work well for what we do. What I've found for both but particularly for the ladies is the stock should be just long enough to allow the thumb of the trigger hand to be no closer than an 1" but not more than 2" from the shooters nose. Generally, if the stock is longer the crook of the elbow will be extended beyond 90% and because the ladies and youths generally don't have the upper body strength that men do and the ladies also have those protrusion there on their chest that can get in the way, so the gun will be too front heavy. When you see that new shooter leaning way back struggling to hold the gun up that is usually the reason why, the stock is just too long. Also the stocks on most of the CAS SXS guns are designed for aerial targets. When you point them toward the ground the positive toe of those stocks tends to dig into your shoulder when you fire. This will eventually cause the shooter to let the stock move down on shoulder which brings the front end up. Shot goes high. Savvy shooters will lean way into the shot but that usually doesn't’t work for the lady shooters. So, now that positive toe is nailing them. For the shotguns besides shortening the stock I like cut them so the pad is about 5 degrees negative. That helps take some of the felt recoil away shooting at our ground targets. Here’s a good example. This young lady was 11 years old when this picture was taken. This first pic is her with one of the youth size Henry 22’s and as you can see she is still struggling to hold it up. [url=" Here she is with a 12ga Baikal SXS that is cut to about 10”LOP with a mercury recoil reducer and good pad at about 5 degrees. Her stance isn’t that great but she is definitely in more control of the gun. [url="

    An Englishman is sitting at the bar between a Scotsman and an Irishman. He turned to the Scotsman and asked him, "If you weren't a Scotsman, what would you be?" The Scotsman thought a moment, then replied, "I'd be an Englishman". The Englishman then turned to the Irishman and asked, "If you weren't an Irishman, what would you be?" The Irishman responded, "I'd be ashamed".

    Asking for any prayers you can spare. My wife is going into the hospital tomorrow for a heart valve replacement. She, like myself is getting along on the trail, and her health is not 100 %. Any spare words to the trail Boss would be appreciated. Thank You and God Bless. Just got a call from my daughter who has established a line with the hospital. My wife is still in the hospital due to a complication. I would there fore ask for your prayers, Thank you.

    Seems that lately if someone cries loud enough SASS responds. For example, there was rank scoring. Wah, wah, wah. Now it is total time. The rule for years was to discard your long arms OPEN and EMPTY. Wah, wah, wah. Now if you throw you long guns on the table and they close it is a no call. For years if you went from the loading table to the firing line with a cocked (or half-cock) firearm it was an SDQ. Wah, wah, wah, now it is a no call. On the wire right now a guy violates the rules and puts a carbon fiber mag tube on his rifle (which is significantly lighter than a steel tube) and after the fact gets a “one-off” personal exemption. Wah, wah, wah. What would you like? Maybe we can have a group cry. I’ll start off. Why can’t I shoot a 97 in the BP categories. Wah, wah, wah. Why can’t my double barrel have ejectors? 87s and 97s have ejectors. Wah, wah, wah.

    UPDATE: Stolen Browning Hi Power Recovered Spoke with the deputy on the details of this recovery. Gun was NOT used in a crime but was in the coat pocket of a parolee that had broken parole. Bad Boy!!! They are sending the gun to the FBI for forensics testing to be sure it was not used in any crime after 14 May 2020 which when the burglary happened. Sheriff's Office will search where he was staying for other firearms that might be there as well....could be mine or someone else's. Apparently when you break parole, LEO's don't need a search warrant to search the premises. Didn't know that..... The process is still unclear as I have yet to speak with the FBI agent in charge. At least I know WHERE it is at......now the process of going through whatever hoops are put in front of me. Randy AKA Bugler
