  1. You missed a really good match... and the weather was to die for. Light jacket in the evening and covers in bed at night. Do you still travel?

      I sent you a private message.

  2. Miss Allie,

    It will show how long I have been on the sideline by my question, but what happened to my info on the website?  Is there a way to recall it or do I rebuild?  

     

    Thanking you for your kindness in answering.

      I am no longer an Administrator. Here is a link to the contact page. Ask them to reset the password on the old account and delete the new.

  5. Allie Mo, saw the photos of the buscadero rigs you posted in forum on Nov 18. You were standing between two other cowboys and ALL that leather looked sharp. I am shopping for some BW leather and yours really caught my eye in that photo. Can you tell me where you got it?

      Hi Gal,

       

      Thank you!

       

      A friend, Anita Margarita, who lives near Knoxville now, made our holsters. She is a meticulous crafts person. I don't know if she makes holsters commercially though. You can contact her through her Hubby, Jackalope, on the Wire Private Message process.

  6. Wow, Carolina is really losing it.  A bit of an ego problem.

     

    We need folks that can spot, time and watch the loading and unloading tables.

     

    All tasks are important even when we cannot do every single task.

     

    You hang in there!

      Maybe someone else could use them. Thanks.

       

      BTW, you do know this is a public post on my status. So, I'd like to delete my address. Do you have it noted yet?

  9. Hi Allie Mo, I changed my alias from Black Hammer to Captain Black Hand.  I tried to change my SASS Wire Forum ID to Black Hand but can't.  Could you do that for me.  Thanks

  12. Hello there Allie Mo, when I first signed up for the wire I put my name as leadbone, I would like to change it to Lead Bone but can't figure out how to change it, help would much be appreciated, thanks Lead Bone...

  14. I followed the link to the guidelines that you just provided to Texas Jack and it may (or may not) surprise you that I had never read them before.  I just rely on my own sense of decency to guide me and it serves me well in most cases.

     

    Well... I still haven't read them, 

     

    I got through the first 30 lines or so before just scanning the rest of the way and deciding that it was going to be way too much work for me to parse that out in a way that my brain can absorb it.  The guidelines are written in a fashion similar to the terms and conditions that many organizations publish.  In the case of Ts & Cs, they are done that way on purpose to discourage people from actually reading or truly understanding them (along with using microscopic fonts).  I don't believe that is the intent here.

     

    I took technical writing classes in college but that was so long ago that I cannot quote all of the rules and/or suggestions but one that I am always conscious of is: You need to provide adequate empty space between thoughts and paragraphs to give the reader a chance to catch their breath, ponder, and understand what they have just read.  The forum guidelines I just looked at are in desperate need of empty spaces.

     

    If you were to poll your local community, you may find someone that does technical writing for a living or sideline and might be willing to do some editing.

     

    Anyway,  I hope that you will accept this bit of criticism in the friendly manner in which it is intended.  I chose to present this privately in light of the current climate and didn't want to provide some folks with more stuff to rant about.

     

    I do want you to remember and consider that many of us truly appreciate the work that you and the others volunteer to do for the benefit of all.  I don't always agree with you but then, I never always agree with anyone.  (not even myself :huh:)     I am not trying to be sycophantic!   (I learned a new word today and I'm practicing using it in a sentence. :D)

     

    Now!  back away from that computer! Grab your guns and ammo and go shoot something! (inanimate, of course)

      Hi Cody,

       

      You did not Private Message me. This message is on my profile for all to see. As is this answer.

       

      I agree wholeheartedly that the Guidelines are hard to read. I also agree about the empty (I learned it as white) space. I am well versed in Business Communication and Technical Writing. I have a 1998 BS (LOL) in Business Administration (Accountancy Concentration) and at my last job, took several classes in technical writing. I just do not choose to spend more time than I already do on the Wire.

       

      I've searched and searched; but cannot find it. Someone, rewrote the Guidelines in an easier to read format. I sent it to HQ and nothing happened.

       

      Thank you for your message!

  16. Thanks pard, I'm waiting for Allie Mo to ban me for not going with the public sentiment.

    Somebody does what's been suggested and thing could go very wrong, very quickly.

    Some of the yahoo's think they're Wyatt Earp and are going to clean up the town....HA!!

     

    Happy Trails

      Hello Gentlemen,

       

      I doubt you knew this was a public post not a private message.

       

      What is it about? If you see anything amiss on the Wire, I wish you would report it. Can you give me a link to the thread.

  17. Hi Allie, I have changed the spelling of my alias to Magill from McGill.  Can you change this on the wire for me.  I have received the certificate from the SASS office with the change.

     

    Thanks!

      It is done. :) You're welcome!

  18. I like the new dates.

     

    2017, I saked to shoot Grand Patron or Grand Patron Gunfighter. The ladies changed me to Gunfighter.

     

    It still seems absurdly silly to restrict someone as old as Me from shooiting my way, especially in Grand Patron!!!.:-(

     

    It is not as if here is a massive amount of octogenarian competitors!!!   :-)

    1. Allie Mo, SASS No. 25217

      Allie Mo, SASS No. 25217

      I'm with you. I've brought up changing age-based categories to allow all shooting styles several times. It is an argument that has been answered by some ridiculous comments. Alas, I give up.

       

      So sorry!

       

       

  19. AHOY, Young Lady:

     

    Anything new on Crand Patron Gunfighter????

     

    I stayed home from EOT in 2017.

     

    Geez, after 80, who cares what style we shoot!!!   :-)

     

    Mud Marine

  20. Whatever happened to Grand Patron being allowed to shoot "Gunfighter" style. I applied for EOT but finally gave up. My problem is I have used that style since I was a small boy. I sincerely doubt that I would be safe trying to switch pistols. I also have no idea why Grand Patrons were not allowed to shoot any style. Gee, isin't enough that we are still alive?   :-0

      Dear Muddy,

       

      I've brought this up and got thrashed every time. Some of the thrashers have poor reading comprehension.

       

      I give up. Just shoot GF with the kids. ;)

       

      Sorry!

      Howdy Snake-eye,

       

      You sound apologetic. No need. No worries.

       

      Our man in Florida (Colonel Dan) beat me (in California) to it.

       

      Regards,

       

      Allie
