  1. Had a T.O. (more than once) Shooter ready? Yep! No beep.. He laughs a little and again. shooter ready? Yep! No beep.. He laughs again.. and yes we're good friends.. He's just joking around.. But now ya just don't know if you're gonna get a beep or not.. Rance Just sayin'
  2. I have reloaded with TrailBoss since it came out.. 38 special.. I reload 110 grain TC to OAL of 1.435.. for pistol and rifle.. I use 3.0 grains for pistols. Little less recoil and 3.6 grains for rifle.. I have also used the same powder load with 105 TC and 125 TC with no problems.. Rance Thinkin' it's just what I do..
  3. Illinois is months behind on issuing new FOID cards.. and many months behind on new concealed carry and renewals.. Approval to buy a firearm with a valid FOID card.. A week.. Ours is controlled by the Illinois State Police..
  4. I shot a '66 with 38 special for a little over 10 years.. No problems with 1.435 Overall length.. i switched to a Uberti '73 a few years back.. It would not cycle as smoothly.. Somtimes it would lock up.. I took the brass lifters out of both.. I used an angle gauge and changed the angle of the ramp on the '73 lifter to the same as my '66 lifter.. Haven't had problems since.. Rance Thinkin' I ain't a gunsmith tho..
  5. Dang!! Thinkin' I finally won High Overall!! Who woulda' thought??
  6. My license plate # SASS90 My SASS # 54090.. Not enough room for complete SASS #.. only got my last 2 numbers
  7. I turned better times with a 3rd. Generation SS than I did with the Super Short a Stroke.. but hey.. I got older too Rance Thinkin' age and attitude might have sumthin to do with it
  8. Empty holster rig, SASS badge and holder on the back, and a small knife and sheath on the back to hang my loading strip on when ready to shoot.. I wear a separate shotgun belt with 8 rounds of shotgun and 5 rifle reloads.. Rance Thinkin' Keep it light
  9. Most cowpokes have cartridge loops on their first rig.. Most cowpokes have them full when they're new to our sport.. Most cowpokes empty them out after about 5-6 matches.. Most cowpokes find they don't need to haul around the extra weight.. Most cowpokes don't have any cartridge loops on their 2nd. Rig.. I have 5 rifle cartridge loops for reloads for my rifle on my shotgun belt.. Rance Just my thinkin'
  10. As of now.. 297 views.. 2 responses.. seems like lots of interests?? Thanks Cypress Sam for passing along your info.. Rance Sorry folks.
  11. Just wondering if some cowpokes that are in the know.. Could post some pictures of how the carrier is modified for loading "Over the top" Many pictures and suggestions would be great.. Oh yeah.. Shooting 38 special in Uberti rifle 18" barrel.. Rance Thinkin' I'd sure appreciate it
  12. Stef75 There was a '66 Yellowboy for sale in the SASS classifieds for maybe 3-4 months.. decent pricing but it had a 24" barrel.. I realize it's not a '73 but.. I thought the reasoning for it not selling was the 24" barrel.. The seller kept lowering the price and it finally sold.. Barrels can be shortened but if you really want a 24" barrel.. Get it.. If ya don't really want one?? I wouldn't buy one.. Rance Just my thoughts..
  13. Just kinda wondering about an update on your carrier situation Hellbender?? Rance
  14. Howdy and welcome.. From reading yer post yer an old frustrated kid.. (Just like us) You dream of the toy guns you had as a little kid.. (Just like us) You have yer favorite cowpokes like Roy & Gene.. (Just like us) Ya might read up on the Classic Cowboy or the B Western catagories.. Cuz they are gonna have requirements of gun leather, guns, costuming.. Like some have said.. Go to a match to look and see.. Touch and feel.. Yes.. Those other cowpoke shooters will let you touch and feel all their Shootin' irons.. Probably offer to let you shoot them.. When ya go to a match.. To watch and learn.. Notice the pards not shooting too.. (They're called yer Posse) They'll be busy helping other shooters shoot the stage.. Don't get in the shooters way but help the posse.. Figure out the game (class) ya want to play and THEN.. BUY ALL THE GUNS YA CAN!! Trade in some of them there police firearms.. Yer retired ain't cha.. JUMP IN WITH BOTH FEET!! Rance Thinkin' just some friendly advice.. Oh yeah.. the class ya pick ta shoot may determine what kinda holster rig ya want..
  15. If your replacing the loading gate.. Be sure to reinforce the tab.. Not for "IF" it will bend or break.. But "When" it does.. Rance Just sayin'..
