  1. These folks are NOT using semi auto pistols and 10/22 rifles. How EXACTLY is someone using a 22 caliber firearm that, for all intents and purposes, looks the same as the guns you're using harming YOUR experience? The recoil? The sound? The brass? And if it is so harmful; and since 22 has been legal in our game for decades - have you previously been refusing to shoot on posses with Buckaroos and Juniors? Black powder folks talk down about smokeless. Warthogs talk down about mousefarts. 45 talk down about 38's and then dash cali

  2. I weary of these mask discussions. I wear one anywhere I might come in contact with people. If that labels me paranoid, panic stricken and cowardly, I don’t care. I don’t get in arguments over it. I don’t brow beat others who are maskless. I keep my opinions to myself. Too much finger pointing and hate going around. I’ve also been called fearful and paranoid because I carry a firearm.

  3. Where to begin? I was born in Pittsburgh, my Dad was Korean War veteran and Westinghouse technician, Mom was a nurse. I've worked since I was 11 years old delivering the Pittsburgh Press. In my teens I worked at McDonalds and, put roof's on with my dad. We went to church every Sunday. We were not rich, but we were not poor. I was lucky to get C's in high school, I stared out the window waiting for the bell to ring. Looking back I wish I had paid more attention. In my senior year I joined the Army Reserve as an E-1. I went to basic training 6 days after I graduated high school, I turned 18 at F

  4. A pretty little sonnet. An abundance of frilly language deigned to drip honey upon the ears whilst evading the sting of insult upon any party. But... We're cowboys - we speak plainly. We extend a hand when needed but we don't ask for handouts. We believe in being strong and self reliant. We believe in fair play and if a man betters you - you shake his hand and move on. We don't adorn with poison or back shoot. The shopkeeper has just as much right to a good or service as any one else. If he (or she) enters into a mutually agre

  6. A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand. Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk. He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching. For weeks, the tw

  11. I feel bad for folks who’ve developed such a fear. It’s not normal nor healthy. I went hiking over the weekend and came upon a family of five, in the mountains, all in masks. Sad state of affairs. My wife and I believe in prudence, not panic. And we allow grace to those who are panicking.

  13. For those that don'r want a vendor to buy the "good" deals how long should a "good" deal have to be up before anyone other than a new shooter can buy it? An hour, 8 hours, a day, a week? What decides what a good deal and what isn't. How do you know the vendor is not buying something for a son, daughter, grand child or spouse? What about the new shooter that asks his local dealer to find him a gun or guns. Is the dealer supposed to not buy the first thing he/she sees that fits the request because some other shooter is looking for the same thing? How is are the vendors that cater to

  14. Like what? Exactly? I do so tire of "this will cause the sky to fall" doom and gloom anytime a change is proposed. Especially when there is no reason expressed of "WHY" a change is so bad, so dangerous, so harmful. We have access to 22 caliber firearms that look, operate and perform exactly the same as our center fire models. So it can't be an appearance issue. Not ending with the rifle has been a "suggestion" for years and years - and shotgun and 22 revolver record just fine for the (competent) TO. So it can't be a timer issue.

  15. I understand both sides of the situation. As the seller, I want to sell as quick as I can for my asking price. The first person to state "I'll take it" is the person that I'll sell to. Would it bother me to sell to a vender. Not at all. The buyer is willing to pay the price asked and will probably not delay payment due to "unforeseen" circumstances. I may not know the vender personally but I have seen the evidence, over the years on the website, that I'm not going to have problems with the transaction. If I were a new shooter, I can see their point. They would like to g

  16. I would like to see a feedback link added for both the buyers and the seller. I am a merchat but I don't list here. I mainly use the gun auction sites and over a 22 year period I have accumulated over 500 all positive feedbacks. My point is I will bend over backwards to avoid a negative feed back. I also buy from those sites. If the seller has negative feedback the site allows you to see the complaints and the rebuttals. If the negatives are excessive, (to me more then 1%) or the seller comes of as confrontational I will pass on that item.

  17. Why does selling and buying need to be non offensive or for the good of the majority? The SASS classifieds are for buying and selling, those that invest the time will most likely get the "good" deals. Since when has SASS become the "cancel culture" if something is offensive or not working for the "majority" in someone's eyes? As a buyer I'm certain I've offended sellers with offers that I believed were fair. As a buyer I've been offended by offers that in my opinion were ridiculously low. In the end if an agreement is made between the buyer and seller there shouldn't be

  20. Let's look at this problem from another angle: I went to three drug stores and Walmart trying to find Alberto VO-5 hair goop, a well known and very old men's hair product. I finally found some at CVS.....three tubes on a bottom shelf of the men's 3/4 aisle section. Yet they have about a hundred feet of women's product, maybe more, down four aisles and across an entire back wall. If this were an isolated case I wouldn't gripe about it, but I can't find any brand of mustache wax (lots of sticky crap for spiked hair and women's hair), most places never even heard of B

  21. *I never get upset when someone gets a good deal. Whatever their reason. I'm happy for them. I also don't get mad when someone gets a better stage time than I do. I'm happy for them. *I don't like the idea of giving one type person(new shooter) an advantage over another type person for the purpose of "first dibs". Or any other reason for that matter. Even college entrance preference, or job hiring preference, or loan preference. Earn it, if you want it! *I don't like it when someone posts a want to buy thread and people say, "if he doesn't want it I do" or some such. It's just kind o

Provided, of course, that you have nimble fingers and do not hesitate in your actions A true gentleman's weapon and capable of facing AND OVERCOMING the vilest and most dastardly attack! Does not perform very well in wet conditions, but, Oh Well!.

  23. ROOTERS NEWS AGENCY EXCLUSIVE: In a stunning announcement from the latest Mars Lander Team, comes word that Canada has already landed on the surface of Mars and built a structure, familiar to all Canadians and essential to Canadian habitation anywhere. The Mars Rover has not yet reached the site, but early photographic evidence has just been released leading scientists to scrambling to determine how long this structure has been on the surface of Mars and if it is fully operational. When reached for comment, Canadian officials stated, "Well it's gotta be handy for us wherever we

  24. Well, this reminds me of a story. Upon arriving home yesterday evening, I was met at the door by my wife, sobbing her eyes out. Tearfully she explained, "It's the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone." Immediately, being the caring husband I am, I got into my pickem-up truck and drove downtown to confront the druggist and demand an apology (or I was gonna open up a whole can of whoop-ass on him). Before I could say more than a few words, the druggist told me, "Now, just a minute, please listen to my side of it... This morning the alarm failed to

  25. My Mother and Father had an incident about 40 years ago. "Lady" barged in front of my Mother and Dad in a line-up waiting their turn at the cash. "Lady" pushes her way in front of them with the words, " I'm in a hurry!" My Father, a usually patient and courteous man, in his 70's says "Yes, but so are we" to which "Lady" tells him to "F.O. Old Man!" Now, my Mother was about 5'2", 1/8 Algonquin and 7/8 Fightin' Irish. Mother reached up and back-handed the "Lady" and knocked her on the butt.

  26. Possum, I recently responded to a WTB post on a Marlin 39a. I remarked “you and me both, been looking for one for a while” later a seller posted some pictures. I replied I would be interested if original poster passes. He did pass, and told me it was all mine if I wanted it. Made the deal. I didn’t feel like I scooped the OP. I made it clear I was 2nd in line. as for merchants snatching up the good deals, yes it bothers me. On one hand, it’s the American way. But, I also think new shooters should get 1st crack at “deals”. I even once saw a reseller claim a “free to good home” item

  27. Be aware that any vender has to pay a substantial amount to SASS to be in the Chronical. Far more than dues cover. The folks on this forum are only a fraction of those in SASS and attending matches that are clamoring for guns from venders like those here. The venders offer their wares to folks that don't frequent other venues like this board. From what I have seen, they don't make that much profit when scaled against the risk of investment. I know of one vender that lost $700 on a gun that was never shipped and he has no recourse. I see the same folks with sour grapes over and over

  29. She would be better served, IMHO, with a properly fit 12 gauge shooting very light loads. My wife had her 12 gauge Stoeger fit to her for shooting ground targets (not flying targets), by a knowledgeable gunsmith, and I developed a 7/8 ounce load using Clays that is lighter than a featherlite, and knocks 'em down every time. In my experience, women who shoot a 20 because, they believe it to be a lighter load, just get beat-up by the gun. My 2 cents, --Dawg

  32. Clip-on WW's are not even close to pure lead, stick-ons can come close. But that is a good thing, because pure does not work the best for normal smokeless cowboy loads, while WW's are decent, although little softer wouldn't hurt, especially if you have lots of pure to cut it with. If you want to learn about lead and casting then www.castboolits.gunloads.com is your best bet. Sometimes there is even lead for sale there from people you can trust. I have been reloading for 50 years but only casting for the last 15 years, but doing so for 4+ people in my family has taught me a bit about
