  1. The ROC has discussed allowing accommodations for differently-abled shooters in the past. The SHB used to include a statement regarding doing so, but it is no longer there. . The "final word" in the ROC discussions was that any accommodations for shooters with physical limitations is up to the Match Director of an individual match. That would include equipment modifications, footwear, as well as providing "hands-on" assistance. (an example of which would be having a helper provide assistance for a wheelchair-bound shooter as a "pusher"). I've personally shot mat

  2. 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

  3. When you are wanting to go shoot, don't just leave...don't just tell the T.O. that he/she needs another spotter and walk away. Find one yourself before you leave! It's rude to expect the T.O. to do EVERYTHING for you. So...have a nice day. Phantom

  4. I had the pleasure of shooting with Oklahoma Dee at Comancheria Days last week. For those of you that don’t know Dee he is a very accomplished shooter and is a always a favorite for not only catagory but overall at any match he goes to. Last Friday, 1st stage, first gun, he missed his holster. Dropped gun, SDQ. He cleared his guns, brought then to his cart, came back to line ready to resume posse chores. Never a sour look, a pout, or anything but smiles and helpful for the rest of the match, even though he knew he was out of the running for any awards. I hope if I ever have a simila

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Well, good news. I was hired this morning as a Manufacturing Engineer by Anvil Manufacturing in Ozark, Alabama. It's only a 30 minute drive, salary is reasonable, and most of all they have good medical insurance. So Monday morning, no more wandering aimlessly around the property or perusing the internet for jobs. BACK TO WORK!

  10. I wonder why... A farmer walked into an attorney's office wanting to file for a divorce. The attorney asked, "May I help you?" The farmer said, "Yea, I want to get one of those dayvorces." The attorney said, "Well, do you have any grounds?" The farmer said, "Yea, I got about 140 acres." The attorney said, "No, you don't understand, do you have a case?" The farmer said, "No, I don't have a Case, but I have a John Deere." The attorney said, "No, you don't understand. I mean do you have a grudge?" The farmer said, "Yea, I got a grudge. That's where I park my John Deere." Th

  13. I started hanging out on this forum and shooting SASS nigh on 20 years ago. Back then I was a 2LT at Fort Carson. You guys and all my shooting partners seemed old to me, because the average age of this game is quite a bit older than other shooting sports. After a few years on active duty I switched over to the Reserves and have kept going. I have since retired from the career in civilian law enforcement I left active duty to pursue, and have begun another career. But I'm still in the army as a reservist, and now I have soldiers who have no memory of 9-11, nor what it means to fight from t

  14. My grandson (only grand child) turned 20 on the 20th of February. Today (his dad's 55th birthday - another senior citizen in the crowd.) he informed us that he is starting a class to learn and get certified to be an EMT, and has been approved, assuming he gets that certification, a place in the fire fighters academy in Las Vegas. I couldn't be prouder of the kid. I guess he isn't a kid any more. Drinks are on me.

  15. I do a fair amount of traveling - but mostly weekend trips or short hops to buy something or close a deal. In the course of these trips; if I can - I like to pop into a local match and shoot. I will be in California in August; so I decided to look at clubs that their shoots (according to the SASS club listing) coincide with the time I will be there. What do I find? Websites that have not had schedules updated since 2016 - no monthly shoot dates or times - advertising shoots from two years ago. C'mon. It is not that hard - if you have a website; show a littl

It makes you feel young again, and inspired with hope for the next generation. And the in-laws have warmly accepted him, despite the fact that he's a Yankee. Both are UNC grads. LL

  21. For years and years it's been common for folks to slight the cost of a Shotgun. They would buy a new set of revolvers and have $1,500 invested in them by the time they were in the holsters. Then they would buy a Rifle (usually a 73) and have $1,500 invested by the time it was on their shoulder. Then they would go out and buy a cheap Shotgun. For some reason folks just didn't want to spend money on a Shotgun. I've always considered the Shotgun the "make or break" gun of the set. Having a quality Shotgun is just as important as the Revolvers and the Rifle. No doubt there are deals to be had on g

  26. 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

  33. J & S Old West Cowboy Museum Yesterday at 9:14 PM · Have you ever wondered why they cut a mules tail in "bells"? Back in the day.....the Army used mules in service. A green mule had its tail shaved. By the time the mule was broke to pack, a 'bell' was trimmed in the tail. Once broke to drive, a second bell was added below the first. Broke to ride, a third tassel was trimmed below the second. Thus, a three-bell mule was a well-schooled animal. This way, when looking at a corral full of unknown mules, it was easy to identify w

  34. Cut down the amount of stages or round count and no one will shoot...kind of the Socialist effect. Take from those that have and everyone has less. I too covered my butt by having inventory. If you lived through the previous shortages and didn't learn your lesson...then take up fishing or something till the components come back on the markets. Don't make others pay for your poor planning. Phantom

  35. Phone rings. Robo voice announced that they have sent me multiple mailings about my car warranty. (They always say this, but have not) Press 5 to speak to an agent, or press 9 to be removed from their call list. (I've pressed 9 a BUNCH of times in the past. Nine dinna work) So I pressed 5. "Agent" eventually answers and asks me to tell him the make and model of my car. Instead, I said "No. But what I WILL tell you is this: The next time you people call me, I am going to crawl through the phone line, grab you - or whoever else it i
