  1. PM sent. Stock is yours. Al M. W couldn't use it after all. Still available for shipping. Al
  2. I have up for grabs a really short '97 stock. This was on a gun I traded for and would be great for a small person or youth. Original stock. No cracks, no butt plate. Wood measures 10 & 1/2 in long from butt to receiver. Yours for shipping. Should fit in a med one rate box. Al
  3. There are a number of molds available, but, in my experience, you will be better served using round balls. They will seat better, load easier, and shoot straighter than a conical. The above is IMHO. Enjoy yer new toys. Al
  4. A 200 count bag of 250 gr, gas checked, smokeless lubed commercial cast bullets (don't remember who cast them). I have gone to Holy Black, so I won't shoot these anymore. $25.00 shipped in a one rate box. Al Knew I forgot sumptin'. .378 dia. SOLD to cowrustler Pending. Thanks Al
  5. I use Alliant 5744. Clean, not position sensitive, easy ignition with std primers. Al
  6. I think my mule has died, so I'm just gonna' stop kickin' him. Won't do no good nohow. Best to all. Al
  7. Rolan, I take umbrage at that remark. I am A LIFE member, have been since their (SASS) earlier financial distresses', when I opted in for the life to help out. The use of the forum site and an ad filled chronicle seems to be the only perks I get from them nowdays. And in answer to the question, what does an annual have to do in reguard to the fees?? If you don't put one on, they aren't interested in you or your club. I know this from personal contact with the HQ. And yes, I have assisted in putting on a major shoot. Yes, it is a lot of work. Lone Star Frontier Shooting club/CVV are class shooting groups and have the premier shooting facility in North Texas IMHO. Shot there many times, but health has kept me away the last too many months.

  8. Again, well and good. BUT, our matches are shot on TWO bays, just changing scenarios, using the same target setups. We can't put anything on the range unless we are shooting it. We don't have the afternoon before the shoot to use the range. It is open to "casual" shooting by other club members. At the end of our shooting day, the range is again, turned over to casual shooting. We've explored this from every angle, and decided it isn't worth persuing. "Nuff said!! No annual. SASS Hq isn't interested in us, thus we aren't interested in them as our governing body. We still practice the "Cowboy Way", just don't pay them for the privlige. Al
  9. GCK, I laud the club for doing this. BUT, here again, crops up the problem we have. We have CAS range space for only 4 stages, and we get to use it ONE day a month, for approx. 6 hrs, and have to remove ALL targets etc from the range at the end of the shooting day. Pray tell me how we could put on an annual?? I asked the same question of SASS and received NO REPLY.
  10. We are part of a much larger shooting club, and as such, have limited range use time. Thus, a multi day shoot is out of the question. Best to all, and a good shooting year ahead. Al
  11. It wasn't the 100 bill, it was what we got for the 100. We were supposed to get periodic communications with HQ, names of new SASS members in our area, notices of local and regional happenings etc. What we got BEFORE the demand for the 100, NADA!!!! What we could expect after paying the "fee", more of the same, since we didn't sponsor an annual, we were ignored. I, personally, am a life member, and 12 of the rest are members, We still encourage joining, and support the larger local clubs. Just don't pay the tithe. Al (26238 Life)
  12. Our local club went "dark" when SASS demanded a min $100 yearly from our 15 members to remain on the "affiliated" list. Unfortunately, they offered us NOTHING in return. We are too small to have annual shoots, and struggle to maintain our insurance and equipment. Thus they had nothing to offer for the money demanded. We still shoot, still follow the "rules", and enjoy the comradrie without someone picking our pockets. Al
  14. One affordable source, with great products. Lee Shaver. Been using his sights for years now. Real quality for the money. You can spend lots more, but IMHO, not get too much better. Al
  15. They got all my money they gonna get for value received. Al
  16. Go to online reloading info. I won't quote any here per the rules. BTW, I find B'eye is dirtier than Tite group. Al
  17. I find that Tite Group and B'eye have same burning rates and I load them the same. Al
  18. Hint: Stick with the .457 round ball. Don't ask me how I know this. Al
  19. I have found that , at gun shows, if the item is on the aisle side of the table, it is junk, if it is on the inside of the table, it is a treasure and priced accordingly. I just don't go to any of them anymore. You see the same crap, just at a different dealers table, at a higher price than last time it surfaced. My musings Al
  20. Bonds are fine pieces, but hardly what I'd call a derringer. They are almost as large as a Colt Combat Commander .45 ACP. That said, they are easier to control due to the size and weight. BUT, they are costly for what you will use one for. Sold mine after 4 years of no use. Al
