  1. Hopefully they are sending you prepaid shipping labels.
  2. A good friend and smith I know who goes through a ton Rugers selling as match ready packages returned a pair a few years ago for some pretty major issues before starting work on them. He is very OCD and numbers stick in his head. A year later he received another batch of guns from a different distributor, The numbers stuck out to him on one pair and he confirmed in his log book that they were the very same pair and had made it way back to him a year later still with the same issues that he encountered before. He confirmed with the original distributor that they had returned them to Ruger..........now that's pretty crazy.
  3. Hate to say it but it's not exclusive to the SASS Vaqueros. I bought some Talo Rugers for my son and it was virtually the same story. The good news is they cleaned up well and slicked up very nicely and have been great guns but the amount of buffing compound that was on and inside the guns was laughable. I have known two people that work/worked for Ruger and they said that the amount of temp. help they use is amazing. They also both stated that the expectations for getting guns out in "x" amount of time was basically unrealistic while having any expectations for quality control. Still love Ruger and I am ok with dealing with some of the smaller issues. I transfer quite a few guns (actually the bulk of my business) I give zero consideration to inspection other than confirming the serial number. If you buy the gun from me directly I will bend over backwards to make sure it's right, hazards of doing business online. Clean em up and put some springs in them and shoot them. You'll forget about the dings after you put a couple dozen in them or at least it won't sting as much.
  4. I can only speak to the ones I have handled. They seem very robust and a hybrid between a Colt and Ruger. The mainsprings are flat Colt style and will take aftermarket Colt mainsprings. They have Colt style half cock with a transfer bar which some people report as being a little fragile. Boomstick Jay I think has welded up several and removed the t bars. They are attractive from a price standpoint especially with Ruger prices increasing as well as the Italian guns. What I like about them is they are different. I might get a pair to play with and review sometime.
  5. With 14 NM counties already declaring 2A sanctuary they are gonna need more troopers.
  6. Last night the city of Edgewood NM voted to become a 2nd. Amendment Sanctuary City. Our very own SASS CEO Misty Moonshine and Wildshot spoke at the meeting. I could not be more proud to be a part of a organization that walks the walk. You can listen to the audio here Misty starts at about 1:08-15 followed by WIldshot.
  7. Spoke to him this afternoon, I am going to go with him for the authentication.
  8. I have a Colt SAA that is known as an artillery model. I came with and interesting story from the previous owner. I have had it lettered by Colt and all they really did was confirm that it was indeed at one time a service revolver. Does anyone know of anybody that tracks down the service records of Colts. I was given the name of the man who apparently carried it in the Spanish American War. I don't mind paying for the service either if it is authentic and reputable source. Thank you for any help on the subject or experience shared.
  9. Hi Deuce,

     

    After having the holsters in storage for 14 years, I think I'll show up to a few shoots this year.  Hope to see you around!

      Hey AJ! Has it really been 14 years?!?! Wow. Be good to see you again.

  10. Remington discontinued that offering quite some time ago.
  11. Paradise Pass will be launching a pretty cool program at their monthly match in April. It's going to be a category called Linerider. For $15 (plus the cost of a normal match fee) a person looking to try out CAS/SASS will be able to rent an entire rig which includes Revolvers/Rifle/Shotgun/Ammo/Holster rig and a cart. The revolvers and rifle will be in .22 and shotgun will be a SxS or 97' with Featherlite shotshells. Many of us have and are willing to loan gear to folks, but on many occasions I have seen people balk because they are not comfortable borrowing someone else's firearms. They will also be assigned a mentor for the day to help them. I think this is going to work well and it gives folks a better feeling of "ownership" of their day.. Paradise Pass is a privately owned range and also has a full service gun shop on sight and is very experienced in interacting with new shooters. Because of that we get 12-20 spectators who come and check it out. They also have a large social media following and we will be using that to launch the program and get people interested.
  12. Sam, that actually helps a lot and makes me feel less like a crazy person. Thank you.
