  1. In an effort to get back to the friendly spirit of the original post, let me throw out some personal perspective from a long-time member (family of 4).......... To me personally, SASS simply represents a harkening back to childhood and westerns, let's me use guns in competition that I find a helluva lot more interesting than "modern" ones, has unquestionably the finest bunch of folks I've ever been around in any shooting discipline I've tried - and I've dabbled in many, and allows those same fine folks to provide a great influence on my teenage daughters at events we attend. Old fashioned v

  3. Lunger is a SASS member that is always first to help new shooters with tips on how to improve their game and gear. At annual matches when he is dog tired you'll still see him working on shooters guns (free) helping them to the last minute. He is a advanced shooter that will help new and old shooters alike. He has helped me immensely. He also is not a braggart so I'm surprised this thread has got as much out of him as it did. Paying for a clubs SASS membership dues himself is just another thing he has unselfishly done to promote SASS. We'er not talking who is the better MAN here but who is th

  4. For starters, I paid the entire sass affiliation fees for a local club that dropped sass recently. I didn't need to spend a nickel because i'm a life member as of a couple yrs ago, but feel I should help out when i'm able. New shooters come to my farm for cas shooting lessons for free, I fix their guns for free, I go to WR every yr and support my friends, and sass in general. Donate to wounded warrior program, that sass took up a collection for. My wife does at least as much, and is there for me. I'd say I have a fairly good reputation. Hoping I can quit there dedeye george, most of my frie

  6. Good Evening: Some of you may remember a while back, our generous pard, Sippin' Whiskey offered to do some minor leather repair free of charge. Well, I sent him a gunbelt that had one end chewed up. Sippin' Whiskey fixed it up for me while I was in the hospital gettin my knee replaced, and it was waiting for me when I arrived home today. It looks right nice! I just wanna say............................... THANKS PARD!!! --Dawg

  7. When I got home from school back in the late 50'S the local TV station had a kid's program that included cartoon and a Little Rascals or Our Gang short. Every now and then I have to watch a few. The old film versions have have been cleaned up and restored. I always get a kick out of Spanky in his early years. I'd like to know how they could get the kids to perform - especially the toddlers.

  9. Tell every NY resident that you know to be conservative and then tell them that they need to vote. All of NYC cannot be liberal. Until, be smart and keep the law as much as possible.

  12. Grits, the NRA is comprised of several tax entities that are both 501{C) -3 and 4. Because I like to determine how well the NRA progresses annually with membership revenue as an indicator, I go to the Guide Star website and read the various NRA Form 990's Guide Star keeps 3 years of Form 990's online Only the SASS SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION INC and SASS MUSEUM AND COWBOY ACTION SHOOTING HALL OF FAME are listed as 501[C) 3's. So believe SASS has not become a 501{C) -3 or 4 yet.

  13. Hello Judge, I'm sorry, I don't see much difference in the following. "If you still don't understand the difference between Lunger's "What's in it for me?" and "what being a member really provides me?", I feel sorry that I can't explain it to you better." One just sounds nicer. I do agree that SASS could benefit from more marketing. I think it might be valuable to hear why new members joined. Regards, Allie

  14. Clearly, not a single one of you has understood what I had posted when I asked for a value proposition for why someone who doesn't shoot at a state or national level should join the organization? You're all hyped up on "What's in it for me?", which is a MIS-QUOTE from Lunger. The actual quote was "what being a member really provides me?". There's a huge difference between the two. My question is the one that SASS needs to address to get new members. Lunger's question is, well, just insulting. Why should someone join the organization is the key issue here. If you're competitive, you have an

  20. I've been using the Lee Auto-Drum for a little over a year. It works great for both Real Black Powder and Smokeless Powder. I don't use black powder subs, so I can't comment on those. It's very accurate with smokeless, but for some reason, with black powder I will get very slight differences. Nothing that affects the load. I always get enough in the case to get slight compression. I load .45ACP and some .45 Colt with smokeless and .38WCF, .45 Schofield and some .45 Colt with Black Powder. I've never cleaned the Auto-Drum and I use the same plastic powder reservoir for both smokeless and

  23. Big Sage, Most don't care about it. They just want to shoot and have fun. I think SASS is doing the best they can. I'm sure if it goes non-profit, Misty will let us know. I don't care which way they decide, I just want them to remain in business.

  30. Up here we have a few clubs that at times allow a Wild Bunch Military category. (1911, Model 12 shotgun, Tommy Gun) We also have one club that once or twice a year sets up a course for "Cowboys and Aliens." Lots and lots of targets from up close to 100 yards. Any and all guns you want to bring are good to go. From Cowboy guns to AR's to M1's to???... No times, No misses or hits called. Just follow the course correctly. Blast as much ammo as you can afford and have fun.

  31. Rye, I went on Pandora and found "Instrumental Folk Music". I liked it so much I created my own station on there. Of course once you start "liking" certain songs Pandora plays more songs in the style that you "thumbs up" so my station is now more or less instrumental Blue Grass....and I used to be a Metal head.

  32. At 500 yards, I would invest in a GOOD scope AND tripod. Otherwise, I'd find myself ultimately buying the scope and tripod I should have purchased to start with. And, I wouldn't loan it to the club, either.
