  1. Yes, to the above, BUT they can also access to "Inspect" after.   I had my locks broken off by TSA (it was them because there was another TSA form in there) one time when traveling.   Filed a claim for new case and after that bought TSA locks.   They're cheap type locks, but that's all you need.   If someone wants to get into your case, they will.  No heavy duty lock is going to stop them.   So why not buy the TSA type locks is my opinion.

  2. In the picture, the arm is in the "down" position (inserted).   You insert a shell on the black shell holder with the arm in the "open" position, and then move the arm to the closed position, and it inserts it into the taper to taper the shell.    


    Works great!!!  have been using it for a few years now and feel it has really improved my getting shells into my shotgun.

  3. Running Mr Bullet feeder for about 2 years on my dillion 650.   Using 38sp,   105 gr coated bullets.    Love it,  runs great.    Spend a little time at beginning getting the right angle for mounting the feeder but after that runs like a top and help me crank out rounds very fast.

  4. Ponsness Warren.   I own two now after having loaded on a Hornady Apex some time ago and a Dillon 900.   Own a 800+ and a 900 elite.   Both great machines and produce great shells.   As I read someone say,  the PW's don't reload shells, the "remanufacture" them!


    Found one of the machines I bought on facebook marketplace.


    And I have not had any problem getting any parts I needed from PW,  even for an old 800b I had,  all were available.

  7. Simple?


    Okay, who do you propose pay for the monitoring of that 6-9 month period's expiration or for the programming changes.


    I do not want to pay for it; nor, am I willing to volunteer to support it.





    I believe there is a basic function in the setup of IP board that will send an email notification to someone when a new user registers. Just drop that name in a simple excel file when receive notification. Once a month review names who are about to expire with the SASS office to see if the many have joined. And if not, delete. Yes, simple, no programming costs and take about 30 min maybe a month.


    Yes programming and running this board is and can be expensive, that's why this benefit of membership should be for current members in good standing or guests for a limited time

  8. Hello Folks,


    I would not favor limiting posting to members only. In the last year, we have had several potential members post questions and later join SASS. I know this as they asked me to change their name to their newly acquired SASS Alias. That alone is sufficient, in my mind, to not limit posting.





    Simple solution. Guests get 6-9 months before their web access expires and need to become paying members


    Dues and membership pay the funds for SASS to support this website. If your not an active paid member or in that 6-9 month guest bucket, just read only access IMHO


    In my opinion the decline in paid membership is because of the generousity of SASS to still offer these services (like this website and being able to shoot matches without fees, unlike other pistol sports) to all for free trusting that the membership will continue to support them, while you have many shooters who proudly wear their sass badge and use their ailias, post on this website and haven't paid dues for years. That's disgraceful in my opinion.

  9. And in answer to the question, what does an annual have to do in reguard to the fees?? If you don't put one on, they aren't interested in you or your club. I know this from personal contact with the HQ. And yes, I have assisted in putting on a major shoot. Yes, it is a lot of work

    What do you want SASS to do for you???????? What interest do you want SASS to take in your club???? Been a match director for he past 10+ years and never was wondering what INTEREST Sass had in my club or what they can DO for me, BUT more what WE as a club and me as a member can do to hep grow and promote SASS or help support our community

  10. Our club sent SASS $100, the fee depends on the percentage of club members that are active SASS members. There is really no way to audit the number of active members. I know $50-100 bucks isn't much. To many clubs it's the principal and they just bailed. I'm pretty sure there is a big annual event that is not affiliated and it is well attended by non-SASS members and current members alike.

    $100 bucks was 2015, 2106 was only $50


    In an effort to simplify the process and eliminate any misunderstanding, there is a change in the pricing structure this year- as a result of your requests and feedback, the affiliation fee is a flat $50; regardless of your SASS membership status within your club members


    Again no excuses not to support the organization that created what we love to do!
