  2. I fully understand the 170 rule,  but I would like someone to explain to me what safely issue one is fearing from an open action shotgun pointing straight up at 180 deg.????

    I have always used a common sense approach, if see it begin to get out of the 170, WARN by saying "Muzzle",  then discuss with the shooter after the stage to be careful and watch their muzzle.  Flagrant side to side violations are a different matter,(they ARE a safety issue)  but a firearm pointed straight UP is about as safe as we can be!

  3. When the summer heat sometimes gets brutal for us here, we do institute casual dress for the match.   Cowboy hat, shorts and T-shirt approved.   Rather have people come out and shoot and survive vs having issues just for a local match.


    Never seen adjustments at a state or above.

    Brand new in package from Ruger, Never installed on guns.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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!

  9. It's only $50 bucks for the year and very sad that anyone posting on the wire can justify why their club can't come up with $50 bucks for the YEAR to support the organization who created the sport we participate in. Who gave us years of enjoyment and friendships can't justify why to send $50 bucks for the year!! For that 15 person club. That's like $3.50 per person???? The same people who spend thousands on guns, leather & ammo. It's all what have you don't for us lately, how about what they have done for us all for over the last 25 years!


    Last year I changed my monthly match fees and gave a discount of $5 off match fees for sass members and hinted to those to join sass because I'll pay the first $40 bucks( $5 times 8 matches). Had some people who refused to shoot because the felt I was charging them more because they weren't sass member. Refused to join sass again because said they "weren't getting anything", yet still wore the sass badge got along time ago, used the sass alias and attended many sass state shoots over the years and had a large group of friends they never had before sass. Weren't getter my anything??? BS. Sass gave them a lifetime of stuff. What I came to understand, some people just like to complain about everything and are never happy. I say. Good riddance! (Now off my soapbox)
