  1. For anyone coming to the Indiana State Shoot.....There will be a 3 stage Plainsman match on Friday at 10:00 am. There will be 3 categories for men and women; Modern, Traditional, and Cartridge for those without cap and ball revolvers. We will also allow adjustable sight cap and ball revolvers if you don't have fixed sights. Come and shoot some of those guns just sitting in your safe!!! It will be a good time for all!!

  2. 2022 LAND RUN





    For all of those who are attending 2022 LAND RUN SASS National Championship and are interested in shooting or watching the Plainsman mini-match here is an update on how to sign up, when it’s going to happen and what to expect.      


    If you have not already signed up to shoot Plainsman but would like to,  

    Please contact Missouri Mae at LandRun@OKCgunclub.org  and let her know what category you would like to shoot. 


    We currently have 25 people signed up and well,  that is just not enough!

    We would hate for you to miss out on all the fun we are going to have so here’s your chance and it’s only $10.00!


    As of right now we will be awarding 1st thru 3rd for the following categories.  Traditional, Modern and Ladies Modern.  We are open to adding additional categories if we get more people signed up. Please contact me or consult the SASS Rule Book if you have any questions regarding what category your rifle will qualify you for.


    The plainsman match will be four stages on Tuesday Oct. 11 at 12:00 noon. The Round Count will be approximately 40 Pistol / 35 Rifle / 20+ Shotgun.  Rifle targets will be set at 40 yards or less.


    If you have never seen or participated in Plainsman, this is your chance to check it out firsthand. If you like Black Powder, I guarantee that you’ll love it.

  3. As someone who enjoys the costuming part of our sport I try to look like someone of the time.  Its not always fancy or over the top but more that if I was in a movie as an extra or in the back ground I wouldn't look out of place.  Lots of movies characters have very simple costumes as was pointed out in an above post but when you look at them,  it saids  "I'm a Cowboy / sheriff / field hand or town folk.  They look like they belong in that time.   The term "Cowboys" covers a whole bunch of images and time periods when you really think about it.   The original post civil war cattle drive cowboys /  the 20s and 30s B Western Hollywood Cowboys and the later 50s thru 70s TV Cowboys.  Our sport represents all of these and any I might have missed.  My personal thought is that when you are at a match you should somehow look like you would if you were in any of these era's.   


    Like always,  my opinion is worth what cha paid.

  4. I guess the meaning of the award depends mostly on the shooters past performance.   If you regularly finish in the top of your category then 4th doesn't really mean that much. However to a shooter that has never done well before and finally gets his/her first plaque or buckle,  well that does mean something.  (I still remember and have my first buckle) 

    I agree that we probably give out too many places and should keep it to top 3 but I don't really care all that much one way or the other.

    I have owned the same rifle for 20 plus years. The thing is a beast but hard to get to shoot well because it is an "Express" cartridge.  The barrel twist is something like 1/26 so it it tends to key hole like a mother until you get the speed up.  I've had decent success with a 300 gr bullet and 70 grains of 2F compressed.  That got me a 6" group at 100 yards.  I have also played with the Remington 255 gr soft lead hollow base for 45 LC  with some success.  

  6. Well Happy Birthday to SASS and The Wild Bunch.

    This is my 20th year playing and I could not be more grateful for all this sport has done for me. The friends I've made and the good times shared. Thank you and Happy 30th Birthday.


    Best regards,



  7. Marshal,


    I did the work on it. I have always liked the 38-40 cartridge and though it would be cool to build an octagon barrel single shot with an ejector for plainsman and just to have. I have found that I like 38-55 better so I figured I might as well sell it to someone who likes 38-40


    The gun shoots great, opens and closes easy and the ejector tosses the casings as it should. I also added a notch next to the chamber mouth to pry a stuck case out should it ever occur. As for group size I have never put it on paper. I hit a steel 20" target at 50 yards off hand 9 out of 10 shots and called it good. Let me know if you have any other questions or comments.


    Best regards,
