  1. I have enjoyed shooting 10 gauge Magnum AyA Matador doubles using Holy Black, two have legally minimum barrels and one has a long barrel for cowboy trap and occasional duck and goose hunting with smokeless powder. The short ones have a cylinder bore and the long one has an extra full choke bore. I load my own into brass shell cases. The AyA guns have NEVER failed me. They are of the highest quality and, if you ever need parts, they are available. FWIW, I also have a 10 gauge 3-1/2" Ithaca full choke semi auto that I use for waterfowl and turkey with slugs for hunting in the jurisdictions that only allow shotguns.
  2. I shot a double of 8 gauge 4", 10 full loads of 10 gauge 3-1/2', 30 .45 Colt in my Henry, 12, .41 Long Colt, 20 .45 Colt in Vaqueros, 100 .22 Long Rifle in my Les Baer and 12 .38 S&W Specials in my little "Lightnings". That was just another Saturday in my personal cowboy town. However, I also fired 3 rounds from my cannon! The cannon was for celebrating remaining being alive!!!
  3. I had a zoom visit with my grandchildren, ate a free take out meal from our truck stop's cafe, ate the 3 sides, gravy and cranberry sauce I made and blasted my metal targets with Holy Black from my .45s, 10 3-1/2, 8-4", and my C. Sharps ..50-140. Lots of emotion, good food and celebratory smoke, flames and joyful explosions. HAPPY THANKS GIVING TO ALL AND TO HELL WITH BIDEN AND THE CHINESE VIRUS. I love Idaho and nullification.
  4. The closed Canadian border and all of the US cancelled matches because of the virus had one positive aspect. I have thousands of rounds for the expected election riots.
  5. I have six OM Vaqueros: two .45s, two .44ss and two .357s. have not found anything identifying them as West Fargo guns. I love them.
  6. Once in Canada, I shot my ten gauge 3-1/2 chock full of heavy black in an enclosed jail house. There was no wind. I darn near asphyiciasted the TG. Tex was right after me. That sure finished off that guy!!!
  7. That's Fremont County. It has the Western part of Yellowstone Park on its Eastern edge. My great uncle and my grandfather got an incredibly awesome elk in the Park. Back then, it had not been clear cut on the border and, until they double checked at our place, they thought they were out of the Park.
  8. An interesting bit of information is my forebearers carried our revolvers in cross draw holsters. So did those of our hands that owned a gun. Most riders did that. I still do that. My only exception is a shoulder holster while elk and deer hunting. ASFAIK, only Hollywood depicted cowpersons with same side holsters.
  9. My .45 Colt Henry Big Boy is my go to SASS rifle. I have fired many thousands of rounds of Holy Black through it over the years. It has never failed me. I also have one in .44 Remington Magnum and another in .357 Magnum (My loaner gun). I have not had to modify my .45 Colt version. It has done a good job for me in Canada, EOT, Winter Range and in lots of matches in eleven states.. It's not light but that just helps with its accuracy.
  10. AWESOME!!! Congratulations. It's such a great proud feeling when your grandchildren do so well. I'm glad he didn't have to use a T-10. My other favourites were skiing and SCUBA diving. For a young guy like your grandson. the opportunity to continue to enjoy fun sports as a Marine or soldier is priceless. My own son, Captain Bill (Silly Billy 55550L), followed with Sky Diving. George H. W. Bush jumped at 90. Once my ankle and knee surgeries are completed, I will emulate that President. Again, Congratulations to your grandson and to you.
  11. I'm looking forward to a 90 year old category followed by 95 and 100. Most of my pards have given up but, as a Marine, I cannot surrender to advanced age. After a lifetime enjoying sports, there's no room in my man cave for any more trophies. Further, at my age, I don't give a d--- for any more. I like age based categories. They are an incentive to others when they see that they can keep shooting forever!!! Importantly, it's nice to have others that don't mind regular potty breaks. Lighten up all.
  12. I have hunted all of my life. I really like elk and moose. Even well buthered venison is not my cup of tea and I don't care for antelope meat. I have been a handgun hinter since Smith and Wesson made the .44 Magnum. Before that, I hunted deer with the .35 Remington Marlin Model 36 that I bought as a teenager from Sears. and antelope and elk with my Browning semi auto in .338 Remington Magnum. I got a buffalo with my C. Sharps .50-140 using black powder and a 650 grain Postel bullet. That meat was delicious. I use one of my tens for birds usually my semi auto. My moose is Canadian. You have to win a chance to hunt one a lifetime here. I don't care for bear meat so I don't hunt them. Since I live in grizzly country, I go armed in the forest but propose to leave them alone if they leave me alone.. The last two years, I used my walker for elk hunting.. My balance sucks and it's also handy for a seat. I could shoot deer right out of my bedroom window but there's no room in my freezer. I plan to hunt until I die.

  14. Nullification remains an important bulwark against federal overreach. It remains a tool as it has been for well over 200 years. Idaho will use it. I love Idaho!!!
  15. My category (El Rey 0ver 85) is brand new and I am just eligible as it was added by SASS this year. I really enjoy it even though as a Holy black gunfighter I cannot compete in it. I still shoot even though 99% of my old pards have quit. I don't much GAD if anyone doesn't like it. IMHO, when complainers get to 85+ I might listen to them. Until them they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. Darn kids in their sixties, seventies and early eighties think they know it all.
