  1. Dear Sedalia Dave. Loved the video of Comancheria Days. Best part was seeing the Confederate mounted shooters!!!!! With all the Confederate statues being destroyed by the left wingnut, socialist idiots who have voting rites, this video warms my heart.
  2. The new Shooter's Handbook is 45 pages. When I started in 1995 I believe it was maybe 6 pages. Of course I could be wrong by about a few pages. My how life has changed. Still "THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE WITH YOUR PANTS ON"
  3. A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to two of the nicest people I have ever met and to their family Tom and Darla.
  4. Wow, sounds like how our Nov. 2020 election results have spilled over into the "game" we love to play. If SASS is supposedly presently a Forum, where it's "customers" ie: members can post subjects and comments about the game they are playing, then when the Moderators decide to nix or move a post, why aren't they telling their "customers" why they made their decision? People who play our game do NOT have to pay SASS a membership fee if they just want to go to local club matches. They are SASS members because they want to belong to and support an organization they believe listens to them whe
  5. Why can't I win my category at every match I attend, and get a prize, because I spent money on the cheapest junk I could find at a swap meet or yard sale, even though I have no idea what I am doing? WAH, WAH, WAH!!!!!!
  6. Brett, Gary Risner of Rockin R Saddlery made Robyn D'Vault and Addie Rose's rigs. Info is 928-636-9329 2012 Eldred Road, Chino Valley, AZ 86323
  7. WOW!!!! So there are clubs that have 50 categories. Hmmm, pick your category wisely and you can come in 1st place at a match. In this current time of CAS, with how good competitors are in almost all categories between males and females, why do we need male and female categories? Show up, strap on, and go "mano y mano!" There are ladies in SASS who just love putting a "whooping" on the "boys" in the Overall at a match. "The times are a changing."
  8. The Henry Big Boy is nothing but a copy of the Marlin 336 and 1895 actions. These actions were made for big bore hunting cartridges not "go fast, race cars". If you want a competitive CAS rifle stick with a Uberti 1873 or Marlin 1894.
  9. Oh boy, have to qualify for a State, Regional, National, or World Championship like in other shooting sports. Has anyone ever been to a "big" SASS match where someone who has never shot a CAS match shows up and wants to be a "Cowboy?" Maybe the time has come for new shooters to show they can really shoot CAS. I have seen shooters who have been shooting CAS for almost a year who are lucky if they can shoot a 6 stage monthly match in barely under 450 seconds, where the rest of the shooters overall average is maybe 200 seconds. These are supposed to be Championship matches where the partici
  10. Yooo Phantom, hope you are doing well as an FFL retail dealer in this absolutely gun and ammo and reloading supply crazy time. As an FFL part time retail employee I know what you are going thru. My word of the day to customers is "NO" I don't have it and I can't get it. Hang in there pard, if our side wins the election we will still be in business.
  11. Dubious Don, you old rascal, miss you at Cowtown and ACSA, hope you are doing fine. Cholla, just met you at High Country Guns and Knives the other day. If you want to know about WR schedule, just contact me or Turqouise Bill, we are here to help you.
  12. WOW!!! Just saw what looked like and unfired in the box John Wayne "Duke" limited run Ruger s/s bird's head grip .32 at High Country Guns and Knives in Prescott, Az. Don't remember the price, but it was beautiful.
  13. Being an Arizona resident, and shooting in the Phoenix area for 16 years, summer and winter, I believe that the best weather in Phoenix is usually April and November. Not hot, not cold, not rain, not snow. I understand that the Rough Riders have to work with Ben Avery scheduling, but, I think these times of year would have better weather. But no matter when they can have EOT, I know it will be a great time.
  14. I've known Mickey and Maureen for over 22 years.  Met them when I started in CAS in Washington where they spent their summer months.  When I moved to AZ 14 years ago they were there to introduce me to the AZ shooters.  Two of the nicest folks you could ever meet.  We shot together many times and have many posse pictures of us together at big matches.  Mickey and I would communicate via E-mail with jokes all the time. After you have been in this game for many years all of a sudden you start losing the folks you "grew up with".  So sad.

    So sorry for your loss Maureen.  You two were inseparable.  Prayers up for you and family.
