  1. Big Sage,


    Most don't care about it. They just want to shoot and have fun. I think SASS is doing the best they can. I'm sure if it goes non-profit, Misty will let us know. I don't care which way they decide, I just want them to remain in business.

  2. No need to state "Make XXXX Safe" If a shooter ain't smart enough to know that already, they need a talking to. What else are they gonna do? Make them unsafe? By saying make them safe you have practically DOUBLED the stage instructions.

    I have to disagree. Make safe instruction on a split pistol means make the pistol safe. Either laying on a flat surface pointed down range or holster. I do agree it is kinda of redundant to say make safe after each gun. Unless you are allowing it to be staged at another location from the shooting station.


    We shoot a lot of shooters choice, therefore I see a lot of make safe. It gives the shooter more options. Besides it is only two words but gives a lot of lead way.


    Good shooting

  3. I guess all shooting disciples, parent organizations, have the same problem. Clubs that aren't affiliated putting on shoots. It's just a problem that's not going to go away. Unless members police themselves. I doubt that will happen. Just the way I see it from my saddle.

  4. I don't believe they will interchange. I have a Pietra steel frame and an ASM frame I would sell. No grips, barrell, cylinder, hammer, bolt, trigger, springs, trigger guard or back strap. If your interested. They have been drilled for a cap post and ruger hand conversion. But we're drilled bigger and alas just have extra holes. Doesn't interference with function. I got these in a trade some time back.

  5. I think the categories in 2000 were: traditional, modern, duelist, junior, and blackpowder. Ladies were modern, traditional, I can't remember if there was a lady duelist.

  6. A couple of our C&B shooters have started applying a little nail polish to the nipples before seating their caps. They claim it helps keep the caps from falling off during a stage. They have had much fewer problems since they have been using this step.


    Is this a common practice? I had never heard of it before they started doing it.

    I've used nail polish but didn't find any better results. Joe West is a firm believer in it. Keeping hammer face clean, between stages, seems to help from cap sucking.
  7. Best way to fix this problem is get caps that fit nipple or nipple that fit the caps. Then use a capper of your preference. Squeezing caps isn't safe in my opinion. They are not suppose to go off just squeezing them. If one does when squeezing it........it will hurt and a trip to hospital will happen.


    There is a picture of a thumb on the web. It was Cuts Crooked's thumb from pressing on a cap. Not pretty.


    Be careful out there.

  8. My 87 is a Coyote Cap with a Lassiter action job. The fastest I recorded on a timer was 6.19 from the table on 4 know knockdowns. I use it mostly with BP. My loads are useful. I'm not trying to impress anybody. You'll be glad you sent it to Lassiter.


    Good shootin
