  1. Those of us who have fussy '92s still use 158. My '92s will pitch a fit over anything else. For rifles I use a 158 over 3.4 grains of Titegroup seated for COL of 1.586, for our revolvers I use a 105 over the same 3.4 grains of Titegroup. Neither my wife or I have any problems with correctly set knockdowns.
  2. I nominate Morgan Daniels. He is an all around good guy. He is quick to help wherever needed. He is the TO everyone loves to have. He lives the cowboy code. He has a ready smile for everyone, and that cheerful attitude that infects the posse.
  3. Five second penalty for hitting a rifle target with the revolver. Then a "P" for incorrectly engaging the rifle targets. Total of 15 seconds penalty time. There was no miss with the rifle, shooter engaged the dump target 10 times instead of the 9 times called for by the stage instructions. Pale Wolf beat me to the answer. He sure is quick this morning.
  4. Yellowhouse, that is what I had always thought. But she said that she does not want a shiny finnish on her rifle. So she did some research and came up with linseed oil. I am not about to argue with her. I am just elated that she wants to start shooting with me. Already got her an '87 shotgun, going to order a set of SASS Vaqueros, and had her old beat-up B92 sent out to be hard chromed. Before that I had Huckleberry do an action job on it, now it runs as smooth as oil on glass. Next I am going to find a Chiappa "87 and have Lassiter work it over, and have it hard chromed. Then the CIA '87 she has now can be her backup.
  5. Thanks OLG, I am in the process of refinishing the stock and forearm of a B92 for my wife. I had intended to use tongue oil, however she brought home linseed oil. She says she read that Winchester used that to finish the stocks on their long guns. I have never worked with linseed oil and was at a small loss as how to proceed.
  6. Outlaw Gambler usually has them on hand ready to go. Classic Old West Arms, is on the internet.
  7. Thanks J Bar, that was just what I was looking for. Now I can make the wife a happy lady!
  8. The front barrel band is in front of the front sight and has a screw, that one makes sense. The rear barrel band is about in the middle of the forearm and it does not have a screw, looks like maybe a pin? How does that come off?
  9. Looking for some advise, before trying to take it apart. I recently had a B92 carbine hard chromed for my wife to use next year when she joins us on the firing line. We just got the gun back from Outlaw Gambler and it is gorgeous, except for the scratched up stock and forearm. My wife would like me to strip off the old finish and redo the stock and forearm with a flat tounge oil finish. I know how the stock comes off, but have no experience with removing the forearm, so I am hoping someone here can give me guidance.
  10. The dues structure is not the entire reason for members leaving SASS and just shooting monthly matches as unaffiliated shooters. In the past several years the Wild Bunch has been seen by many as trying to push shooters away. I know many shooters who no longer maintain their SASS membership, and will list their reasons. 1. Saying that match directors and people who set up and organize matches are cheaters if they shoot that same match. This comment and attitude resulted in the loss of many good workers and shooters. Some still shoot, but don't pay membership anymore. I tried to discuss this with Tex one night at a match, he was very rude and would not discuss the issue. 2. The disrespect shown to the Territorial Governors over the open and empty rule. For the WB to step in and over rule the TG's, showed great disrespect for the membership. Some shooters who left over this have returned, but many have not. When I wanted to become our club's TG some shooters asked if I was nuts for wanting to deal with an organization that does not respect its members. 3. The disrespect shown for shooters who wear jeans. The SASS rules allow jeans, yet members of the Wild Bunch have stated time and again that wearing jeans is not "cowboy". 4. The big jump in dues. Sure dues had not increased for many years, however the increase could have been eased in over two to three years. That way hardly anyone would have said a thing. 5. The loss of the monthly printed Cowboy Chronicle. This was seen by many as the main benefit for joining SASS and paying yearly dues, taking it away caused them to just quit paying dues. The new quarterly came too late to be of benefit; it should have been done in conjunction with the elimination of the monthly. I hope this answers the questions of why people no longer pay SASS dues. They still show up at monthly matches and support the local clubs, just do not shoot at SASS sanctioned (State and Above) matches.
  11. I do not encourage the use of non-SASS legal guns or equipment. It can lead to problems for shooters when they travel to a big match. Was at a Regional match once, lady shooter had a '93-'07 shotgun. Posse marshal told her she could not use that shotgun. She got upset, saying "I use it at home all the time, for three years now, why not here"? We showed here the rules, and she calmed down when I gave her my backup '97 to use. In my opinion we do a severe disservice to shooters when we let hem get by with something that is not allowed at the State or above level matches.
  12. I wear a State Category buckle for dress that my wife bought from the SASS Merchantile for me. For work and everyday I wear one I won at Mississippi Fandango. On my shotgun belt I have my first Regional buckle from Gunsmoke. Just a shame to let pretty buckles sit and gather dust.
  13. People trying to enforce NCOWS rules and attitudes at SASS matches have place. Two separate organizations, and should stay that way. There is no rule in any of the SASS handbooks about pants having to have button flies. Anyone who thinks otherwise is welcome to post their findings. I have asked twice and have not gotten any response.
  14. Where in the rules does it state pants need to have button flies? What book, what page? We don't need another category to accomodate a phantom rule.
