  1. I want to send a BIG ol' Thankee out to Sedalia Dave...! About two weeks ago I received a package from Dave ~ a "contribution for a deserving Boy Scout." Inside the parcel was a really cool mess kit, almost seventy years old and brand-spanking new! Stamped on the lid (which doubles as a skillet): GI Mountain Cookset U.S. F.E.S.C.O. 1952 Well, I am plumb tickled to report that this kit is now a most prized possession of a proud young Tenderfoot named Zhe (middle and last names I cannot pronounce - "You can just call me 'Z,' Mr C!") It seems that this youngster's ambition is a career as a chef, and he's presently working on his Cooking Merit Badge.* The lad was absolutely delighted! *(The Cooking Merit Badge is a requirement for Eagle Scout candidates. And it is tough - a few years ago I asked our staff nutritionist at work to review the requirements; she was astonished. Click on the link above and check it out!) Dave, you gave this guy a real boost... and his troop leaders were downright impressed, too! The gentleman on the far right exclaimed "Hey! I've had the same kit since I was a kid!" [Retired California Department of Forestry firefighter Tim Escobedo, Troop 117. Troop 117 will be 100 years old in 2025] Thank you again!

  4. Part of the problem is sass went from very inclusive and welcoming to very exclusive to get into. One of the biggest mistakes I see over and over is people saying buy once cry once. That you need To buy race ready slicked up guns to have fun. The way the market is currently you are looking at $6000 plus if you do that. Very few will be able to do that. I've seen many times new shooters heckled, teased, embarrassed or ridiculed because they didn't have big name action work. A new person cut corners, and saved to get what they could afford, only to have shooters who should know better belittle them. We are taking over a gun shop at the beginning of the year. Part of what we will be offering is sass setups. Im working with several leather shops but we plan to offer complete sets. Budget to elite. Used rigs used guns entry level. Mid range, or money to burn range. At gunsmoke this year I overheard an experienced shooter who should have know better. Talking to a new shooter about the run I had just made on the speed pistol side match. How it was due to me having slicked up fancy guns and the new shooters stock guns were junk. The new shooter was visibly affected and dejected. Definitely not what we need to be doing! Luckily I was able chat with the young man and put things straight. Easiest way to convince him was take his guns and shoot a time within .5 seconds of my guns. Then explain the differences between our guns let him shoot mine It helped that my pistols were set up by me. Not some big name gunsmith. I got more out of that than beating the fastest 2 handed shooter by a second.

  7. Yesterday I went to a Golden Corral buffet. Decent food, really clean and had a nice meal. Was on my way to get dessert and saw 4 bikers come in. These were actual 1%ers, wearing colors on their vests. They aren't bothering anyone, but some STUPID kid, looked about 17 mouths off to one of the bikers with "Get your stupid, slow F$%^$ A&% out of the way". I can see in the biker's eyes this kid is about to get gut stomped right there. Why I decided to speak up I don't know but I look at this kid and tel him "Kid, you are messing with a real biker. Before you get gut stomped and go to the hospital, you better apologize and get out of his way. He is not gonna be disrespected by a twerp like you." I guess some instinct for survival finally kicked in and the kid did apologize and ran for his mommy. The biker's girl looked at me and asked how I knew that. Told her worked Corrections for 26 years, all high risk or max prisons. I guess I just didn't want to see the biker go to jail for dishing out what the punk had coming...

  12. I've done many things in my young life, most of them overlapping, running simultaneously: Appalachian Ohio has not the tax base to pay for all the social services that are taken for granted here in the Glaciated Yankee Flat Lands, and the responsible citizen must wear several hats. I did. One in which I delighted, was the blue shirt of a working medic. Okay, a blue shirt isn't a hat, but you get the idea. I did my level best to deliver the highest quality of care for every last one of my patients. Cast your bread upon the waters, we read in Scripture, and in the vulgar, "What goes around comes around." It came around last night. My wife is being admitted into ICU with multiple pulmonary emboli. She hit the floor at 3 AM, and when the squad arrived to transport to ER, I am most pleased to report those fine young men exhibit every bit of care, compassion and understanding -- and excellent medical care -- that I did my best to give. Thanks to current restrictions, she'll be allowed one visitor a day, family is far flung and not likely to struggle this far north: I'll keep them updated. If the Prayer Posse would be so kind, I would be very much obliged for a bent knee on my bride's behalf. End of this month will be a quarter of a century as a married couple, and we're still just as happy as if we had good sense. I hope to arrive at that delightful anniversary, still holding hands. UPDATE AS OF TUESDAY 19th -- They ran a cath on her lung, kind of like a heart cath only they made a left at Albequiquie (to quote a certain cartoon rabbit), went into the pulmonary circulation and removed the clots. One lung's circulation was completely blocked. Melissa described her relief as immediate. Did not find out until today -- while I sat in ICU, holding her hand and listening -- they nearly lost her enroute. Good people, well trained, and my bride yet lives. Pards, turn to your beloved, give 'em a hug, tell them they're loved. I learned the hard way, you might not get another chance. I will have that chance again, by the grace of God alone, a lesson I do not intend to ignore! UPDATE II: Tuesday afternoon I am so tired I am shaking. I also benefit from the sound advice of those who have trod this path -- both as patient, and as spouse: my thanks for wise counsel! Melissa is being weaned down on her oxygen: with two lungs working now instead of one, her sats are good, if they can get her down to room air with acceptable sats, they'll freight her to a med-surg floor and out of the Unit. She has a spectacular collection of bruises from where she passed out and hit the floor at home, which is when this adventure started, and the anticoagulants aren't helping the general appearance of having been hit by a truck (face plant on the laminate does no one any good, nor the points of both elbows, nor both kneecaps, ouch!) After the ICU nurses came in to find I'd already given Melissa her bed bath, changed linens and tended the necessaries I felt safe in handling, they told me to report to the main desk and they'd put me to work. We also traded nurse jokes and they were greatly amused when I told them that, as nurses "back when", we had to carve the ear tips for our stethoscopes out of horn or bone, the bell was flint with animal skin stretched tight across, and we used hollow reeds for the tubing. No word of installing a Greenfield filter to catch any more -- there are known clots in both lower calves, she remains on anticoagulant -- she Face Timed her father this morning, and her sister early this afternoon. I'm sorry. I'm so tired I fell asleep on that last line, had to edit out a long line of kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk's. Time for a nap.

  14. The question that has been resent to the ROC is whether ANY shotgun round fired downrange that misses a shotgun target can be assigned as a "shoot where it was" HIT on a target that is down (for whatever reason) before the shooter begins the shotgun string. This would only apply when there is no "order of engagement" specified...unless the down target is the first one of a designated order. Any other scenarios will be addressed separately after this basic question has been answered. The consensus ruling of the Range Operations Committee will be "posted and pinned" on the Wires as soon as all members have responded. Sidebar commentary that is not relevant to the discussion will be dismissed.

  15. First of all let me express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you who responded. I still do not have a full update, but apparently the two older girls are responding quite well and there is not a great deal of fear about their full recovery, the 1 year old is apparently ok and the 5 year old boy came down with it, but apparently not as sever as Mom and Dad. Anyway, I thank my Maker and The Prayer Posse for your attention to my call. God bless you all.

  16. There appears to be a little bit of "flat" (cylindrical shape) at the very mouth of the case. That means the crimp die can be backed off a little. What you have works. But it is a little bit more than is needed, and could give you shorter case life due to more cracks at the mouth. All that most factory crimps will show is the case mouth rolling into the crimp groove (or bullet), not the flat above the crimp. good luck, GJ

  18. Decided to try a short on-line article. There are few things more frustrating at a match than having a hull stick or jam in your shotgun. Hopefully, here are a few ideas to help avoid that from happening. Shotgun ammo needs to be gauged before shooting it at a match. Even brand new Winchester AA feathelites (LowNoise, LowRecoil) have sporatic problems. I have found many individual shells in a case of shells that had slight bulges in the side walls and were difficult to chamber and would not shuck. You want to find these shells before a match, not during a match. I shoot doubles, 87s and just recently tried a couple of 97s I have had for over 20 years but not shot. I also shoot trap several times a week. At present I have three gauges. What is truly amazing is that ammo that fits into one of these gauges may not fit into the other gauges. I do cross checks occassionally but use a specific gauge for a specific gun type. Here is a shot of the gauges. . My favorite 97 is a late E series solid frame. At several matches I had jams and malfunctions I could not intially explain. This was with new and reloaded ammo. I finally completely disassembled the gun so I could get an inside micrometer into the chamber. Chambers have minimum and maximum dimensions. When reamers are new they are close to the maximum dimension. As they wear they get smaller and then need to be replaced. My 97 is dead on the absolute minimum chamber dimension. Must have been the last gun chambered before they threw away that reamer. So a maximum round in my minimum chamber and things got sticky or jammed when the gun was fired. For the 97 I use a case gauge that is made to measure a minimum spec chamber. Rounds that are above minimum chamber spec hang on the edge of the gauge. I use a collet style sizer on my 97 ammo to make sure the ammo head diameter is BELOW the maximum spec for factory ammo. This ensures the shell will drop freely into the gauge and, more importantly, my 97. If loaded rounds stick in the gauge and cannot be corrected by a second trip through the sizer they go into the goof around practice box. For trap loads I have a gauge that was cut with an actual chamber reamer. If the rounds drop into the gauge they will fit any of my trap guns. If they are a slightly tight fit it makes no difference as you can manually push the shell into the chamber and the ejector will kick it out when it is fired. Ammo for the double barrel needs to be the most precise. The rim has to pass the gauge test but more importantly the crimp area has to gauge properly or it might not shuck after it is fired. Most problems with shucking are not caused by the case head expanding as SASS ammo is loaded light so that is not generally an issue. Most problems are caused by the crimp unfolding when fired and not shrinking back enough to be released from the chamber mouth. The more often a shell is reloaded the more apt the case mouth is to get a slight mushroom shape. The next gauge is designed to help fix that problem. You are checking for two things with this gauge. First if the rim is sticking it won't seat in the gauge. The bigger problem on most shells is, however, the crimp area and it is the more likely culprit in keeping the round from dropping into the gauge. To fix the problem you stick the shell in the other end of the gauge and give it a couple of twists or wiggles and then try it again in the other end. IF you can drop the shell into the gauge and it drops in freely up to the rim AND drops out of the gauge when you turn it over it will most likely work fine in your double. If the rounds do not drop in and dump out freely put them in your junk box practice rounds. Trying to wring every reload out of a five cent shotgun hull is a false economy, especially if it sticks on you in a match. When the plastic gets pin holes the crimp will tend to loosen after the shell is reloaded. Even using this gauge the case mouths can open a bit if they aren't fired within a reasonable time of gauging the shell. I do a final gauge of my shotgun ammo at my cart when I am replacing shells fired during that stage.

In preparation for the decommissioning ceremony for the USS Enterprise NCC-1701D, we have the exceptional honor of being escorted by one of the newly re-engined Federation ships...the B-52X. First flown April 15th 1952, the B-52 has been in continuous service, undergoing multiple upgrades during its lifetime. The now reengined B-52X is expected to serve up to stardate 53000.0 and beyond if no suitable replacement is available at that time. >>>Sierrahotel.net<<<

  21. You know...the one who enjoys things you do. Shanley and I were just discussing being married, come April 24th, 22 years! We have been SASS for about 15 of those... Hmmmmm.... We also have a close mindset... We like each others company, but don't have to be 'side x side' 24/7. We have been spending vacation hours 'on the road' (as NM is under thumb...one of only 7 STILL mandating masks) in Texas, Co, Ok and Az... Most of the near future time will be in Co...untill time to winterize and close up. Come December...I will start posting on upcoming EOT happenings...as we will travel once a month for work parties... Here are a few of my favorite times....in our short time...

  22. Linn Kellers post makes me even more proud of my grandson. He has put away his childhood, given up a fairly lucrative job as a lube center manager, and is going to college to become an EMT. When he's finished with that schooling he has a pretty good chance of going to work for the Las Vegas Fire Department Academy and a year or more OJT, then more tech training to become a full-fledged Paramedic. He's very enthusiastic about this and so far has good grades. I truly pray that someday someone will give him the compliments that Linn gave his ambulance support team. And, Linn, please tell them how appreciative you are. They deserve it.

  23. OK, in all honesty, the answer is, I was thinking "these are horrifically bad ideas..." So our - well, Mrs. Doc's - Jack Russell passed a few weeks back. Everyone is aware of that. I had every expectation that come time for the Quarter Horse Congress over in Columbus, that if there were Jack Russell puppies, one would likely be riding back home with us. Then, two weeks ago, Sid came home. He joins Fred as cats around the house, and things seem to be going well, considering Fred was raised by humans and dogs since about three days old, and never had mama cat or siblings to teach him manners. This weekend, we went to Congress. The picture will speak for itself. Ten weeks old and in the house two days and Coraline is letting the two bigger dogs know she is not to be trifled with. Rosie, our Border Collie - German Shepherd mix that was a rescue thinks any time is play time, but I have a feeling here in a couple of months, this Jack Russell may be wearing her out.

  24. A family owned grocery store in town has a pharmacy. A few days ago Shortcake and I were shopping when I got a text message from the pharmacy-you have a prescription ready. Cool. We were already there. Walked up to the pharmacy counter. Two ladies working, the pharmacist and an assistant. Adjusting my cowboy hat, I announced, "I just got a text that this pharmacy was looking for a handsome cowboy." (Shortcake groans. I can HEAR her eyes rolling) Pharmacist says, YES WE ARE! DID YA BRING ONE WITH YA? Much, much laughter all around, entirely at my expense. I quietly returned to my cart and let Shortcake handle the transaction. As soon as they all got up from the floor.

  25. We are way too hesitant to call shooters for violations. Vertical guns break the 170. Carrying your guns from the stage in a lazy fashion with the SxS muzzle forward (and broken open of course) breaks the 170. I’m so tired of some shooters attitudes - it’s unloaded…. You know it’s unloaded… blah blah blah. It’s really quite simple. Break the 170? SDQ. New shooter - warning unless it’s egregious. It’s not subjective… If I’m timing and look down your barrel or you otherwise break 170…it’s a SDQ. I don’t want to be nor do I like being hard ass but complacency is dangerous. Not understanding gun safety is dangerous. Hugs, Scarlett

  26. My oldest daughter develops social media and hires social media employees for companies and municipalities and in her opinion SASS is really missing the boat by not developing and utilizing the social media venues. Keeping information up to date and current is critical to the success of social media as an advertising or promotion tool. If someone visits your FB page or other media front that has not been updated for weeks, months or even years they won’t pay attention. She was here last month and we were discussing CAS and social media and she commented that EOT 2021 is ancient history and it’s important to have what’s happening now on your social media tools. In my opinion having endless videos of old white guys or young white guys shooting fast or slow stages isn’t going to broaden our membership base. Videos of lady participants, Hispanic participants, Asian participants, African American participants, handicapped participants, young participants, etc….all need to be included. Hiring a full time promotions and marketing person or persons and investing in the hardware and technology to put this together would be a big step forward. The Outlaw Travis James and others would be a wealth of information if asked, I’m sure. Does anyone else out there think the SASS Homepage is extremely dull and boring? How tough would it be to have a looped video on the homepage instead of the same picture month after month? Maybe have a new video weekly. Not many younger folks get their information from the same places that we did growing up, like newspapers, local news and nightly news, etc.. they are focused on digital media and so are we if you really look at it. It may eventually move SASS to have a chat line for their Homepage. SASS depending on its clubs and club members to promote and grow the sport is not going to reap long term rewards, in my opinion.

  27. It was the final leg of the Triple Crown. Unfortunately, we did not have Belle as a recruiting tool at that time due to the fact that the shoot-through for the Tennessee State match helpers was on the same weekend as Ambush. Both her and Branchwater shot Ambush's shoot-through in order to participate in Alabama's State match which is their home state. Tennessee and Alabama shares custody of the Dupree family although Alabama only gets every other weekend and some holidays. Some behind-the-scenes stuff you might be interested in: For years Whiskey Hayes and I have tried to schedule the Tennessee State and Ambush (be it state or regional) to make the matches avoid conflict scheduling conflicts for both shooters who travel all the time and those who have difficulty shooting two big matches on consecutive weekends. As you know, in 2022 the two matches are months apart. When it comes to How To Put On A Good CAS Match concept, I've always taken the Sam Walton approach; check out what others are doing and copy what they do best. In the case of Whiskey and the Tennessee match, he could have written the book as there has always been much good to copy. Tennessee has always been a great show. To ramble on a bit more: I first met Branchwater Jack in 2010 at the Tennessee State match where he was serving as a berm marshal. I'll never forget the first time I saw him. Here was this fellow wearing what appeared to be the dirtiest pants and the most ragged shoes I had ever seen on anyone other than old photos from the depression and before. I remember thinking, "This guy is too poor to play this game. I hope he doesn't have a family who is suffering in order to enable him to play." Later the same day I attended the banquet only to see him in the fanciest Civil War Cadet uniform I had ever seen, or have seen since. It turns out that he made it himself. The pants and shoes from earlier that day were from his Civil War reenactment days. A year later I would attend the last match at Possum Trot where I shared a cabin with Randy St. Eagle, Tombstone John, Dobber, and Branchwater. Branchwater ended up on the bunk above me and that is where I first began to get to know the most anal retentive friend. . .of all my anal retentive friends. At the 2013 Ambush shoot-through I got an inside look to his thought processes regarding stage design. Where had he 'trained?' Tennessee. Every stage you will see at Ambush, Jack (uh, Branchwater, uh Ryan) knows how far each target is away, the space between targets, how it affects a left handed shooter, a two-handed shooter, a duelist, a gunfighter, a black powder shooter, any combination thereof, and other things I have not thought of. I tried recruiting him for years, but he always told me he would not be deeply involved in match management until Donald Duke was out of high school. Well, two years ago the North Alabama Regulators needed a stage writer on short notice and I sweet talked him into doing it even though Duke is still in school. Branchwater's first big match to write was the 2019 regional immediately on the heels of a few NAR matches where he did his best to test ideas. His stages are popular to say the least and I can only imagine what our numbers would be by now had we not had Covid to deal with in 2020 and 2021. The fact is I have what I believe to be an incredible team gathered to play hosts to everyone. Barkeep Casey is my sounding board for basically everything that goes on. He is also chief bartender Thursday and Friday evening as well as emcee Saturday night. Graywolf Tate manages range maintenance (which is a lot on a range where most stages are out of their teens as well as playing chef to everyone Thursday evening. Drake Robey handles registration, shooter packs, too many other details to list, and ultimately scoring. He has served more time on the board than anyone and recently became one of the land owners. Toolman is responsible for awards, runs side matches, and oversees the costume contest. These are jobs that are often taken for granted. Big Iron Ranger is the newest member of the board and serves as secretary, chief communicator, and keep me straight-or. That's a handful for sure. Reno Mustang is our TG and is possibly the most well traveled of all of us. . .and that is saying something because there are a number of us who have been around the block a time or two and bringing back what we've seen and liked. And the Co-posse marshals: They are not accidents or just whoever happened to be available. They have been chosen based on observation of their knowledge of the game, their sense of fair play, and willingness to apply the rules. I use two in order to spread the load (it is a distraction to run a posse, particularly at a big match) and to hopefully prevent them from being approached with a problem while at the loading table. Okay. Anyone who read this far, I'll buy you a beer at Barkeep's bar.

  31. I go to local Gun shows. I buy a table with my own money to display SASS and cowboy action shooting. Yes, I have business cards but it’s not about promoting MY business, it’s about promoting Cowboy Action shooting and the clubs in SC. I dress ALL THE WAY UP, have my guns, Chronicles, badges, buckles, awards… I have recruited a few people that way - at least gotten some Folks to a match! My husband usually has a table - he sells some custom knives, guns, etc…. It’s not that hard to promote SASS. Everyone will talk to someone dressed up as a cowboy! We are our own best advertisement! Reach out to folks. Be like Evil DoGooder. You don’t have to have a shit ton of money to get started! As for someone doing a movie? CJ Landers of Maverick’s Custom Hats and Restoration wrote, produced, and starred in Messenger. It’s available on YouTube. Can’t get link to show up. It’s sci-fi and I haven’t watched it yet. Search YouTube: Messenger Red Jack & Ace Productions. Hugs! Scarlett

  33. When my Dad was 90, I took him to Gillette Stadium to see his first pro football game. We tailgated with friends in the parking lot, and then headed toward the seats. Per his usual habit, Dad was wearing his WWII Navy Veteran ballcap. He walked, with difficulty, with a cane, and had to stop frequently to rest. As we made our way through the crowd, we were repeatedly approached by folks who wanted to thank him for his service and wish him well. After the first 10 or 12, the tears were streaming down my face. I was overwhelmed by the kindness and appreciation of so many strangers. Young women and men wanted to know where he served and what ships he sailed on; they were uniformly stunned when he told them that he had been at Normandy on D-Day; for them, he was a living history lesson. When we reached the entrance to the stadium, we were separated from the crowd by stadium security, and led to a private elevator that served the luxury boxes; we did not have box seats tickets, but to save him the long walk up the winding ramps to the cheap seats, they treated him to this special access, seating us in some unused luxury seats. I was totally blown away by their courtesy and concern. After that day, you could not convince me that young people lacked an appreciation for the service and sacrifice of vets, or that the Patriots' staff was anything but patriotic. It was a day my Dad never forgot. People do remember. LL

  34. Just about eighty years ago right now in 1941 , in North Africa near a mostly useless little village called Tobruk, the Australian 9th Division spent a heroic 242 days ruining Rommel's plans to take the Suez canal. His professional tankers, artillerymen, and foot soldiers were fought to a standstill by a smaller number, in every category except courage, of these Aussie soldiers who were stubbornly determined to stop and hold the mighty Nazi Army where it stood. They did exactly that.....at great cost.....but they by God did it. They earned the title The Desert Rats long before a TV series of that name was conceived. I offer a toast to these brothers in arms (and a lot of Aussies that I met in Vietnam) for their outstanding service and I've asked bottles to put it my tab. Cheers!

  35. Have had the bug for a year or so now on and off to try out Cowboy action shooting. To be honest the cost of just getting started held me back for quite some time now. Was talking about getting started into the sport when I had a offer from a CAS shooter that had stopped because of the club changing the shooting day to Sunday. So I ended up trading for a Rossi lever rifle in 45 colt , a Rossi hammer double, double strong side rig (San Pedro Saddlery Tombstone)shotgun belt, 3-45 colt belt slides and a SASS badge slide. Then right after that had another former CAS shooter that had to quit shooting do to health offer me a pair of Stainless, NMV in 45 colt for what I thought was a really good price. Now if I can get my schedule to line up from working offshore I am planning on heading to a match that yet another CAS shooter has invited me to. So far my impression of CAS and its cowboys is that the sport is ate up with really good, genuinely nice people. I can't wait to get to my first match even if it looks like it won't be until November.
