  1. Nate is known as "The Rossi Man." Contact him before purchasing.
  2. Get TV stations to come to a match or practice day, film and interview people. Get with sporting goods stores like Bass Pro and have cowboys show up dressed up and share experiences with possible future shooters. Have your club have a table at gun shows where club members show up dressed up and have pictures of matches and clubs nearby. Get with your friends that have kids or grandkids and bring them out to shoot at matches or practice days. If they can't afford the guns and ammo, furnish for them to let them try it and offer to share your "spare or backup guns" which many of us have available. Get with any youth organization that you can and offer to have a day at your club where they can try out shooting under supervision and with borrowed guns and ammo your club member provide.
  3. As others have mentioned, don't buy any guns until you've tried out several at matches. Yes, try out whatever guns people are offering you to try. Bring ammo or at least offer to pay for the ammo you use. Talk with lots of shooters and get their reasons for using what they use. Good leather is a must. See what others are using and decide what will work best for you before you buy. Cheap leather is a waste of money for many reasons. While a hat isn't a must, it is a good idea. WELCOME to the greatest game there is where almost everyone is friendly and willing to help you out.
  4. Yes, they are expensive, BUT living in the HOT Gulf Coast of Texas and having been through more power outages due to hurricanes than I have liked, I decided when I could afford one to get one. It is a Generac and has come on several times when the power was out for hours at a time due to whatever reason. The last time was 4 hours during August when CenterPoint was working on the power lines and had notified us in advance. Since I'm retired and home all day almost everyday, 4 hours during August without power would have been unbearable. It comes on for 15 minutes every week and I have Generac to service every year or six months. Get an estimate from at least two or three dealers as each may tell you different things. Decide how much you really need, but get one large enough to keep you comfortable whether it is to keep cool or warm. Also check with your homeowner's association to see if you need their approval before installation. Several of my neighbors now have Generac generators also so when the power does go out, we are the only ones with lights and air conditioning when it is 90+ degrees in August at 9 p.m.
  5. Tex doesn't like me posting prayer requests for him on the SASS Wire so please keep this one private.


    A message from Cat:


    "Tex in hospital with very bad infection-sepsis. Is in critical care unit in Pres downtown. Thought u should no. Cat"

  6. Dear Lorelei,


    Thank you for your response. The type of brass bag I’m looking for is made of soft canvas. It has ties on the open end, and the shooter’s alias, badge number and club name, all in bold, black letters. A local fellow - not a shooter - made them for a reasonable cost. I bought several for gifts. He quit making them years ago, so I looking for replacements.


    I see that you will celebrate another birthday next week. May you enjoy many more with good health.

  7. What about old messages 9 years old? When I click on "Messages," some of them don't have the little blue box. They have the red box and show that they are 9 years old. I'd like to get rid of them too. Maybe I don't know how to get to INBOX. I just click on the envelope at the top of the page. Am I missing something?
  8. Thanks for the clear, simple, specific instructions. I used to be computer literate, but have gotten behind the times.
  9. My mailbox is full so I can't respond to a message sent to me. Can someone explain in very simple, explicit terms how to delete messages? Thanks.
  10. Sausage cheese balls made with Bisquick, hot sausage, and grated cheese. Easy to make if you have a food processor. Harder to mix if you don't.
  11. Remember specifically where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news about both tragedies. Sad days.
  12. Consider Texas. No state income tax, lots of great SASS clubs. Just make sure you are south of Amarillo where it does get really cold sometimes. South Texas and East Texas are great. Houston had 80 degree temps here yesterday. Today highs in the 60s.
  13. Hi Lorelei,

    Wish I could say our paths will cross soon. I'll be at the Convention and that's about it for SASS this year.

    Hugs to you and Laz!

  14. Just wanted to say "Hi." Hope to see you again in person soon.
