  1. Thank you Pete! Lets not get into $$$ specifics please LOL, I don't want to think about it. The memories and friendships made along the way have been priceless and would have been just as good without the buckles etc. I'd trade em all in a heartbeat for a few more minutes with friends that have passed on. Unbelievable rewards in this game that you can't put on a shelf.
  2. Practice with dummies will do far more than blasting away with live ammo. There are some excellent videos for learning how to load a SxS for our sport on Youtube.
  3. Here are a few of what I could actually get to without tearing the basement apart. Some are my wife and some are mine. Proud of them all but feel bad cause we don't do anything with them as far as display. Good memory fuel for all the good times and all the places I've been fortunate enough to go shoot at over the years.
  4. Sorry have to disagree, locktime not a factor in CAS.
  5. Short answer, you don't. It's all personal timing. Catching your hammer or jacking rounds out of a rifle are products of your perdonal timing being off.
  6. Shot with Parson at EOT a few years ago. Very nice gentleman. Will keep him in my thoughts.
  7. I would be extremely suprised if they could get a 9mm to keep up with sub 2 second runs. Interesting concept but revolvers chambered in rimless cartridges can be challenging enough.
  8. Welcome, going to the State shoot will be a really good option and gives you the chance to support a vendor. Wild West Mercantile online is also a very good choice and has been a huge supporter of SASS/CAS over the years. While it is possible to start and stay with the bare minimum I applaud anyone who is looking to start off trying a little harder in the clothing department. What we wear along with the spirit in which the game is played is what distinguishes SASS from other shooting sports and I love to see it embraced. Enjoy
  9. Have shot hundreds of stages that use rebar stands and thousands and thousands of rounds at targets hung on them. As someone who has moved TONS of steel I love the versatityand ease if use. Yiur targets and stands look great!!!!!
  10. Seems to be a regional thing. My neck of the woods they are almost uncommon, but at a friends club in CA they are very popular.
  11. Off topic here but figure I can get a answer. Has anyone used the Wolff, Wilson Combat or Miculek spring kits for the S&W Model 10 and do you they work well for you?
  12. I'm pretty sure Rick is looking to use this method for his cartridge pistols so the wads are not a option.
  13. The quality and craftsmanship differences are so obvious thats it's not worth touching on. Yes Stoegers have been in the winners circle many many many times. But currently there are a hundred shooters than can outrun the best SxS shooter there was in the game 10 years ago. Everything changes. Techniques have evolved over time. I thought I would never stop shooting my BSS. Loved that gun. When I finally broke down and tried a SKB the handling differences alone cut 3/4 of a second instantly. Shotgun is where THE most time is lost in the game. The Stoeger fills a much needed gap in the game by getting many shooters into the sport economically and fairly reliably, still have mine in my safe (first cowboy gun I ever owned). And guys if you don't want to drop the cash for a SKB for yourselves and you are lucky enough to have your wife shooting with you do her a favor and buy her a SKB, she will love you for it.
  14. I am pushing the reset button on this and resisting had some email issues with my Mac. This is my personal back up that has been a safe queen and never has seen a cowboy match. It's in really nice condition and has a lifetimes worth of cowboy shooting in it. Very small crack on right hand side, a couple scratches on stock from handling but other than that it's a cream puff. 22" barrel action work by Doc Noper. I should be keeping this for a backup but funds are needed elsewhere right now. Again awesome gun and not a slapped out backup. $1385 shipped to your FFL. Price is firm and no trades. SKB's this nice are getting hard to find. First "I'll take it" posted here gets it. Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas.
  15. Interesting topic,with some good thoughts being shared. The match director side of me recognizes that we are in the entertainment business. I am all for recognizing as many shooters as a mach sees fit to. How a shooter chooses to feel about their own accomplishments is up to them. Recently at a board meeting for our state match the question was posed would shooters rather see a smaller amount of buckles awarded but make the buckles higher quality or more buckles making them not as "fancy" due to cost, the first reaction was higher quality buckles but stick with more of them LOL. It seems a lot of our shooters sport wide like lots of awards given. As Four Bucks pointed out what does it really matter. The core of this game is meeting individual goals and self satisfaction, because in the end there really is not anything else. Not to switch subjects but I always scratch my head when people talk about all that shooters have sacrificed to be successful in this game. Sacrifice is something that a soldier does,something a LEO or Fireman does, or even a Mom and Dad, not someone who chose to dryfire more than the next guy. I can speak with 100% certainty that the biggest award you will receive comes from within knowing that for that particular few days you happened to put together a match that got you to your finish. If you are expecting more you will be disappointed. Probably not a popular view but hey I've been there before. It's the contributions that folks make on and off the range that labels champions. Anyway thats the view from this old busted up soon to be wranglers saddle LOL.
  16. I like the qualification. It's goes against the "every kid makes the soccer team" mentality that seems to have crept in everywhere.
  17. The concept of trying to keep the shells spaced correctly from the belt,bando or whatever your using to the chambers while also trying to get max speed has never made sense to me I guess. I let the gun do that and try to do everything else as efficiently as possible. When someone shows me different on the timer I'll starting thinking about changing and teaching differently.
  18. Dern played a conflicted town marshal in Last Man Standing. He got Bruce Willis his twin 1911's back so he could smoke the whole town.
  19. No, it is not. But they are very high quality and tune very nicely and that can also be said of the action lifter/lever springs.
  20. There is nothing stopping a local club from offering a sub category like you propose. But in my experience of match directing even the most casual of competitors will not like placing below a adult shooter be it a man or woman who is shooting .22's when they are shooting centerfires.
