  1. Have not logged on in months, and now I remember why.
  2. This is off topic a bit but I shake my head a bit ar how easily folks want to call the game dead/dying. The shooters both current and potential are out there. Nobody wants to talk about the actual issues we are facing as a game, like how we’ve painted ourselves into a corner. It is still growing in areas. And presentation has everything to do with it.
  3. Title says it all. Looking for a Greener GP shotgun 12ga in good working condition.
  4. Notice I didn't say it makes smoke standard.
  5. Most "champions" are using about 6gr. of it.
  6. I can tell you that the last time BJZ practiced was about 6 years ago, and that was ONE session. I know because I was there LOL. Extremely busy and driven individual who literally never touches his guns in between matches. Naturally talented in many ways with the attitude and mindset to accomplish great things. BJZ is the complete package when it comes to a CAS shooter. Completely selfless in what he gives to the game and a straight up competitor who plays 100% by the rules. One of my heroes.
  7. Congrats to one of the sweetest snd most positive genuine ladies on the range. One of my favorite people in the game that brightens any event she attends. Oh and she can shoot too!
  8. Uberti/Taylors 1873 Deluxe 18” in .357 mag. Average cart and handling marks in wood. Nice CCH. Super short full action job by Colt Mcallister which includes lightened brass carrier, whisper springs, stainless mag spring and follower and grabber front sight and lever safety has been retained with trigger job. Gun was mostly a backup. So actual round count is low. This was part of an estate of a retiring cowboy so no it was not slapped by me LOL. $1425 shipped to your FFL. If you are interested in this rifle feel free to email at deucestevensllc@gmail.com
  9. I have noticed the trend yes. Whether it’s noticed or not is directly affected by your involvement. Those involved more on the match administration side of things will hear and see it more than what can be observed on a posse. It ranks right up there with holding match directors responsible for your own personal shooting performance. “
  10. I'm not exactly sure what you are asking for. Misty has been the most transparent CEO we really could ask for. You are on a internet forum owned by the organization that you consistently complain about yet offer no real solutions other than thinly veiled attempts to discredit SASS. You are using the very format that is responsible for periodicals going by the wayside and advertisers using their budgets differently. I joined when the big paper chronicle was still king. It was fun, it was informative...now Facebook and Instagram fill that need for a large portion of the folks out there. I'm glad to see that SASS knows when money is NOT best spent. Thank you Misty!
  11. I'm interested in some alloy, please pm me. Deuce

  12. Slicks products are great and he is a excellent support of SASS. On separate note it is very possible to shoot a Marlin out of battery, I have done it dozens of times during matches over the years.
  13. terrible thing drinking alone......I mean you get used to it but still.....
  14. How about Vaquero Viejo and Vaquero Nuevo in keeping with the Spanish theme. This also makes us much more multi cultural and trendy, which will equal a mass entrance of hipsters into SASS.........wait never mind bad idea.
  15. Awesome! Been15 years for me and cannot begin to express all that SASS has done for me. Could never repay all that I have taken from it that is for sure. What a ride it's been and going to be.
  16. Doc Noper welds them up nicely and also modifies them to allow for more extraction of the hull since the ejector guns have slightly less than the extractor guns. For me I would want that little bit extra shell extraction.
  17. If the cylinder is sjipping bolt notches it's a new model.......
  18. Some people are very passionate about everything they do. I have seen tempers flare at matches dozens of times and almost always they are very upset with themselves. But on the rare occasions you will run into people where it seems to be very much a habit.......spotters are always wrong........the posse has it out for them....wind always blows when it's their time to shoot etc etc etc. My mentor told me about 15 years ago that it takes years to build a reputation and 5 seconds to ruin one. I have tried very hard to keep that at the front end of my thinking. We have all done things at some point in time that we wish we hadn't and I believe in giving people a second chance. But eventually you have to come to the realization that you cannot control the way someone wants to play this game. I often see competitors leave the match early and skip awards if things did not go their way, they always say something like "I'm in a time crunch and gotta get home" when you know full well had they shot the match they wanted to they would be there. I have no respect for that personally and feel that it's terrible sportsmanship, but if that floats your boat so be it. The awesome thing about CAS is that everyone is nice, the bad thing about CAS is that everybody is nice, so folks with bad behavior tend to be tolerated for quite awhile. That all being said after traveling all over the country for all these years and shooting so many places there is nobody I would flat out refuse to shoot with, and I think that pretty cool.
  19. Amazed by the irony of some who use the living snot out of this forum yet claim to have no use for the organization that owns it............wow
  20. in my experience the positives have not outweighed the negatives so I will continue to shoot and produce a traditionally lubed bullet that has served me very well for 15 years of CAS shooting. Try them and see they may just be the bees knee for you but they were not for me.
