  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. 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!

  3. Howdy All, Let me shed some light on the decisions made. With the current status of restrictions in New Mexico, it was not practical to invest in non-refundable deposits and contracts to start planning EOT this year at FR since it was almost imposable that the state would allow it to take place. Misty decided to host EOT at Paradise Pass in Indiana because; Our restrictions appear to be much lighter Our Governor is very pro business and is working hard to balance this with the virus restrictions We are a privately owned property so there is no "board"

  4. 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.

  5. The mail carrier left a slip in the mail box yesterday. Postage due, large envelope, two dollars and fifty five cents. It wasn't in the post office when I went up with cash in hand. It came today. Here it is. I about fell over. I was nominated by an old squad partner. In better than a quarter of a century of putting my life under the lights and siren, this is one of the only times anyone ever said thank you!

  6. To the Moderators: If this ain't allowed feel free to delete without prejudice. Some observant and concerned cowboys noticed that my website has mostly unavailable products and that I am selling bullet molds in the Wire Classifieds. Let's stomp out a few rumors and misconceptions. This will be a huge relief to most folks that know me. I AIN'T DYIN'! (yet) More important OUTLAW BULLETS IS STILL AROUND. I am replacing old molds with newer ones to make an even better product. With the pandemic a ragin' all around us

  7. Following @Creeker, SASS #43022 thoughts, and the thread on growing the game Grow the game: Reduce barriers to entry - SASS Wire - SASS Wire Forum (sassnet.com)...I wondered if we couldn't explain the costuming requirements for new shooters a bit.

  8. Stolen from castboolits forum: The Old GentlemanYears ago I got a M94 30-30 for my 14th birthday. A year later my grandmother gave me $20 for my 15th birthday. The next day found me in Fosters Sporting Goods in Dallas, Oregon trying to figure out how many 30-30s in combination with 22 LR HPs I could get. There was an old gentleman observing my one person conversation and he decided to butt in. He convinced me to get a Lee Loader, an 8 oz can of Unique, 500 CCI 200 primers, a small plastic head mallet and a tapered punch. I even had enough money left over for a couple boxes of 22s.O

  9. I had mentioned my son and his new company in another thread. One of the local news channels interviewed him last night. The first airing was at 11:05pm last night. By 11:15 his Facebook page and phone were lighting up. Today he was turning people away. Incredible! Here is the link. https://wpta21.com/2021/01/29/its-a-relief-snow-plow-companies-prepare-for-weekend-weather/

  10. But it is well stated. From a Marine Corps Colonel in Afghanistan: "So with all the kindness I can muster, I give this one piece of advice to the next pop star who is asked to sing the national anthem at a sporting event: save the vocal gymnastics and the physical gyrations for your concerts. Just sing this song the way you were taught to sing it in kindergarten - straight up, no styling. Sing it with the constant awareness that there are soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines watching you from bases and outposts all over the world. Don't make them cringe with you

  12. Before I had my morning Joe, I spotted some morning doe out in the yard. 5 of em and a little buck. Then about 100 yards out, I saw the Big Boy. Couldn't get a decent shot through the wintry window so I snuck out the back door as quite as I could and as the doe moved off he actually came closer to pose. Thanks, Buck.

  13. THE GOOD: I survived open heart surgery. The real good part is that they had to open me back up 3 times to stop internal bleeding after the surgery was over and I was stapled back up. They had to remove wiring, etc..... to open me up, give me lots of blood, etc..... Still healing but doing well. THE BAD: poor Red Knee. The surgery didn't slow me down! ..........Widder

  14. Recently I acquired a Colt Detective Special but it had issues, light primer strikes. I got a new main spring for it but the spring didn’t fix the problem so I took it to a gunsmith. Recently I sent my New Vaquero to Ruger for some warranty issues. It would skip a chamber on occasion and it shot the left of POA at 10 yards. I sent it in and after it got to Ruger I decided to call and see if they could make a .45 ACP cylinder for it. I was told “probably not as we aren’t doing elective work right now, only warranty repairs.” Last night I got a call that my Colt is repaired and

  18. Here's a sad story for those who want to shed a tear. The year was 2006. My late wife ,Miss Ann, loved Founder's Ranch and we had stayed there a number of time when there was not a match there. We saw it when shooting area was mostly a thought. Anyway she had gotten a promising Pet scan results early in year and felt great at Winter Range in February. As so often the case with cancer, things can change quickly, by June she was weak and using a walker, but she wanted to go to EOT. Although not a shooter, she loved so many folks within SASS, from members of Wild Bunch to hundreds of sh

  19. We should all know now of Misty Moonshine's dedication to us, the members of SASS. With the current situation throughout, Covid and EOT moving, she continues to "do what's right" for us. Many of you probably do not even know of a commitment numerous members made in 2005 in a special investment to SASS. Since the move of EOT at the time was to a place called Founders Ranch, the "catchy" name for the investing group became Founders Club. There were a number of "benefits" to persuade the investment, many of which perhaps never materialized and perhaps just forgotten thru the years. However

  21. Today our doctor took my wife off of one of her blood pressure meds. And if her weight loss continues and her blood sugar stays where it is he will take her off of Lantus (insulin). Also, we know that God loves us and cares for us. What is better than that?

  22. When we decided to leave Southern Illinois to be closer to our family, one of our nephews wanted us to move by him and his family, but they were in Iowa and since both of us grew up in Chicago, we did not want to go back to that weather. So we eventually decided on Arkansas so we are just minutes from 3 nieces and nephews. As soon as we got here, temps went below normal! Now we have about 6" of snow, single digit temps! The Missus has been standing at the window, staring, for about 30 minutes... Guess I ought to let her in...

  23. I worked for that organization for a number of years. Y'all ain't got NO idea how bad it was...! I could tell some stories, but won't here, as I don't wanna end up in jail or "disappeared." I will say that in a one year period ('89), three of my colleagues died and I ended up in the cardiac ward. One fella came out of the boss's office, went home and died. Another came out of the boss's office, went into his office, closed the door, and died. The third came out of the boss's office, went home, and did himself in. When another colleague told my boss

  25. Happy 72nd birthday to my dad BAD RIVER MARTY one of the fastest gunfighters with a pistol you never hear about. In 2010, at age 61 he won senior gunfighter at EOT. He also won the side match of speed pistol with the all day fastest time out of all styles of shooting at EOT that year. Yes, he beat all the people that were on TV consistently back then. He has been to EOT 1x in his life. Since then he had a heart attack and two bouts with cancer. He is now cancer free for a couple years now and has shot in his 1st regional in 10+ years in 2020. He has not left Michigan since 2010 until 2020. I a

  27. I seldom win anything, so this was just amazing. My grocery store, like many others, has rewards cards. And they give you points based on how much money you spend in the store. Each dollar you spend gets you one point. And points can be spent on groceries. 100 points is equal to $1. So you buy $100 worth of groceries, and you get a hundred points, and the next time in the store you can use that hundred points to take a dollar off of your grocery bill. They also have surveys, on how you liked your latest shopping experience, and what you think of this great idea they've

  28. I just want to give a huge Thank You! To the Misty, her staff and the SASS BOD for their efforts in making EOT happen in 2021. It would have been very easy for them to cancel the event again this year due to COVID-19 and no one could say they didn’t do the right thing. I know this couldn’t have been an easy decision and I am very excited they figured out a way to make it happen. I would also like to say Thank You! to CC Top and the whole Paradise Pass Gang for stepping up and taking on this awesome event. I personally couldn’t be more stoked about it and know they will make this a World Cl

  30. Alpo's question reminded me of another story from way back when. I was a 2LT at FT Carson, in the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment (they lost the "armored" part a few years ago, but they were armored then). I had a soldier who played a prank on another soldier, but it went very badly for him. The nature of the prank is not appropriate for this forum, so suffice it to say the NCOs brought the matter to me and recommended we give the offender an Article 15. I agreed. For that level of Article 15, the approving authority is the company commander, who, back in those days, was the guy I reported t

  31. What are the odds of a brand new shooter actually winning overall? I'd say very slim even with only one revolver. Match directors have the ability to allow a whole bunch of stuff at monthlies; including less guns and .22's. I don't see the issue. Don't see that we need ANY rule changes; handle it at a local level like it always has been. When you get a visitor; make sure they understand that they can shoot with .22's or less than 4 guns; just take penalty's and no eligibility for overall winner. Personally I don't think we need to do anything other than S.A.S.S. itself

  33. Ok, I don't normally post for any reason let alone personal, but at work we had a boss retire and then got a replacement. I am 57 yrs old and I have worked in a wide variety of work places but the "retiree" was the worst self-proclaimed genious know-it-all I have ever come in contact with. Idiotic is a kindly and generous description. New boss is so completely 180 that is is very hard to comprehend how much nicer this crappy job (but it is an "essential" job) has become. I may even make retirement myself. My wife noticed a significant change within 2 days. Best Christmas present s
