  1. I was VERY lucky when I started. Had my first pistol and very nice uberti and was asking around for a second. The guy that was running the local club told me a shooter was moving and looking to sell some guns. Bought two colt SAA in 45 that were worked over by Bob James for 600.00. Still have those and learned quickly that a good gunsmiths who could smooth out the Colt were limited and worth their charges. Now about the endless list of guns that I let get by or sold off, SKB,Colt and Winchester.
  2. Look at the sales on the SASS wire most Rugers posted for sale only last a few minutes.
  3. LGS in my state had federal small and large pistol as well as CCI for 55.00 a thousand with sale tax. Limited to purchase a thousand of each size per visit. That’s the best price I have seen in many months. I did buy some to carry me over until prices stabilize. LGS owner said at present their costs are up but he was hopeful that would change. He also told me he would not raise the price on the primers as he figured if he charged a fair price to his customers they would stay his customers.
  4. Recently at a small monthly shoot we had a fairly new shooter at the line. I was the TO in order to carefully watch and assist the shooter. First gun was ten rounds from the rifle. The shooter safely fired the ten rounds but did not lever the rifle and eject the last empty. As he placed the rifle down with the lever closed I as the TO ordered him to open the lever. He did so and out popped the empty round, he continued the stage and completed it safely. At the end of the stage I explained to the shooter and posse (most new to SASS) that in a match we do not call the shooter back during the sta
  5. Federal small and large pistol primers at my LGS are 52.5 a thousand. Limit a thousand of each per purchase. not like two years ago when federal had rebates but at least they are in stock
  6. FYI, I have purchased a rifle (44-40 lightning) from Yul. Honest cowboy and I would not hesitate to deal with him. I found that the rifle I received was nicer than he described. that being said these ROA that he has listed here are worth every penny. Ruger does not make them anymore and with the extra cylinder and engraving these would be a good investment just wish I had the extra gold
  7. I shot in the same posse as Griff, he was determined to shoot a clean match and we all admired his commitment to do so. that third day the rain was constantly falling just the amount varied. I loaded the guns under a large umbrella taking care to keep it dry. The guns once charged were placed into holster under my rain slicker. The caps all fired but as mentioned three failed to powder. Powder was APP fffg. Grif was using real black and as you can see on his video experienced failure to ignite the powder. I did recap the chambers that failed and they fired with the second try.
  8. I shot my first EOT this year and really enjoyed it very much. On the third day of the shoot I was in the mid day group and was faced with four stages in the rain. Moisture is a real problem with cap and ball ignition. I made it through three stages with no issues but on the fourth the rain caught up to me and had three fail to fire. Got a pop of the cap but no ignition of the powder. looking for suggestions to improve my shooting. Would a magnum cap help? best regards
  9. LGS in Wisconsin has limited supply of federal and cci primers. Limited to 1000 primers of each size. Price for federal is $55.00 @ 1000
  10. Sad to hear about the accident, I hope who ever did it contacts you. With all of the RV's in the lot along with the trailers I guess it is also possible one of them struck your truck as they were leaving.
  11. I believe the base model (fixed choke) will run $500.00 delivered. That certainly is a fair price. They will take orders on the shipments no deposit required at this time. Delivery after the first of the year Given the up and down history of 1887 and 1897 guns from China I hope that they come through. Regards Thank you to those who have severed in the Military
  12. When my father past I acquired a second Model B style Tumbler. No need for two so I am offering one for sale. Checking with Midway USA I see the new price is 219.00. These are a large capacity very strong tumbler, will clean large numbers of brass either wet or dry. Very well made unit. $ 75.00 plus actual shipping
  13. I have one like this also worked on by Long Hunter. As you said they do great work and are very good in communicating with customers and delivery on time. I have some other guns by Long Hunter and they all are great.
  14. Glad to hear not lost brass, with the difficulty in getting reloading components now and foreseeable future I will gladly contribute to some youth group to retrieve my brass. will the Rest of EOT matches have brass pickers?
  15. Looking to thin out the safe some and this beautiful rifle needs to be used. A Pedersoli Lightning carbine in 357. I sent it to Lassiter and had him do his magic on the gun. Set up to slam fire this gun will feed and fire as fast as you can pump the action. Will feed and fire 38 spl as well but the gun is designed to use the 357 length shell case. Gun has very low round count. Some very light safe marks on the walnut stock. These are a fun gun to shoot in SASS. Sold Pending funds
  16. I know there are several vendors that will display at Land Run. Is there a listing of the vendors for the shoot? Its been a long winter and find myself in need of resupply. Regards Marshal Fire
  17. Be great if they would come to winter range to display their products!
  18. Ted Cash makes a brass snail style. Works well and holds 100 number 10 caps.
  19. The current discussion on the media is that the airlines can impose a rule that would not allow ammo on the aircraft. It is the fastest and easy way to regulate without a law passage and difficult to fight. Hope not as I plan to fly to Winter Range this year! Could cause issues for th honest people.
  20. Wadcutter ammo is mainly used for paper targets. The wadcutter will cut a round hole on the paper target which is helpful with the scoring. If a round cuts the line of the next higher scoring ring on the target the higher score is counted. In some cases a target plug is inserted into the bullet hole to check the score value. While many are correct that the Smith & Wesson Mdl. 52(semi auto) used wadcutter ammo it was and is used in many other handguns for target shooting. Back in the old days when the wheel guns were the issue weapon of law enforcement they were also the handgun used in PPC
