  1. This is a great place to shoot, and the food is good. I went there several years ago and shot the Indiana Black Powder Guild match. I sure wish I could make this one. Good Luck y'all
  2. This, 7/8oz shot , Gray wad, 14-15gr Clays. Good Luck
  3. Dang Dan, is that when I was stepping on your toes?? He dresses like Injun, as in no shirt, nor shoes...etc..etc...but he does drink alota water.
  4. Howdy Calvera, I filed the sights for SASS, it was probably 8 - 10 years later that I picked CFDA. I've had the pleasure to shoot with some CFDA top guns at both state and regional championships, I don't know of any that removed the front sight. The way you I draw the front sight is not dragging in the holster. IMHO it would be a waste of time and multi use of a good firearm. Go shoot it for a while first. Good Luck
  5. 1. Was SASS (or CAS) your first foray into an organized firearms competition? Yes a. What shooting game or games did you play prior and why start SASS? None - plinking. SASS looked like something I could without breaking my back b. Was the cost of those games more or less than your SASS cost? More c. Did you have to/ choose to delay SASS because of the costs? No If you answered YES a. What brought you to SASS as opposed to any other shooting sport? Saw it on TV while recovering from major back surgery b. What hobby/ sport/ game did you participate in prior? Offshore/Inshore fishing c. Were the costs of the above more or less than SASS entry? More d. Did you have to/ choose to delay SASS because of the costs? No
  6. I have a pair of GW II that I use for both. The front sight has been filled about 3/16" for my .45 Special 200gr Red Dot load. I don't think you are really gonna gain anything by removing the front sight. Good leather with a cant that fits you and regular practice will more than overcome anything you think you might gain by removal. Good Luck
  7. We sure are gonna miss him. Saw him for the second time a few years ago at Greenlake Park in Wilmington. Great Patriot and spokesman for us gun lovers. RIP big man.
  8. Yep, works great. I've used a small upright for years in my garage. Humid Carolina coast no problem, I have a Golden Rod stored on a shelf above it. Good Luck
  9. Hmm Nobody would shoot with only bibs, a hat, and no shirt or shoes. I'm just sayin
  10. Reload, you can get a Lee Classic Turret kit for what you'll spend in just a few matches. One kit includes dies, the other includes scales. Till then Scarlett's. Good Luck https://kempfgunshop.com/Lee-Turret-Press-Kit.html
  11. Star, one for BP and one for that other powder. Get your dies from 'lathesmith' over at castboolits.gunloads.com. Good Luck
  12. Red Wing Shoes is what I wear. Used Red Wing work boots for 25+ years, lots of choices, ankle boots too that look just like brogans. I still have a nice pair of 11" slip-ons for dress up somewhere, but I can't wear any kind of boot now, that's why I wear shoes. If you decide to look at them go to Red Wing store to be measured on their gizmo. Good Luck https://www.redwingshoes.com/
  13. I started out with Titegroup, 3.2gr in .38 105, 125, and 158 .357. Titegroup has a snappy recoil and a very loud report. I tried Clay's, good all round powder, light recoil. I switched to Red Dot for all my smokeless loads, 3.3gr for .38s works great. Good Luck
  14. S A L U T E ! ! Welcome aboard. And thanks for tutorial offer. JefroRelax-Enjoy

    Big Drink

    Yeaaa!! Here's mud in yer eye
  16. Pietta makes the Cimarron Frontier. Great guns, real CCH, coil plunger, smooth action. I have a pair of these and pair of GWII. Good Luck. Aaa ha, Abilene beat me to it
  17. Yep, the ones everyone loves are for straight wall cases. The fingers on the bottle necks will not give that type of crimp. Good Luck
  18. Most lever guns do not like SWC, use them in pistols. You said you bought a competition Uberti, most competition ready guns have had a short stroke kit with reduced springs, and a reduced stainless steel mag spring and follower. Does yours have this action work done?? Either way it should hold 10 rounds. Good Luck
  19. So sorry to hear that DJ, condolences to you and yours. Those pictures of you, Ms. Johnson and Gus tell a happy tail. Best Regards Jefro
  20. 14 grains of Red Dot, 7/8 or 1 oz. #8, Gray wad - STS hulls Good Luck
  21. I prefer Schuetzen, a little cleaner burning, Big Lube bullets keep the fouling soft . I just finished up a batch of KIK but now I can't find anymore. You don't have to clean them same day, I usually clean on Tuesday. If it's gonna be a week or more I'll hit them with a very light mist of Ballistol and put them in the safe. Makes clean up a breeze. Good Luck
  22. Howdy OLG, I've been using it about 10+ years. It's used in shrink wrap for cars, bikes, boats....Also a lota stuff is treated with it for packaging parts, the Hornady powder drum is wrapped in what looks about like brown paper treated with it, I think it goes under the Cortex brand but it's the same stuff. Dies and shell plates come with a little 1"x1" cardboard piece in the box treated with it, no more need for camisol or heavy bearing grease on all kinds of parts. One other product that I really like for moving parts like base pins or 1911 slide is Gun Butter, not bore butter Watch Todd Jarret run 1000 rounds as fast as he can I was glad to see how well Ballistol did on this fellers tests, except the smell part he didn't like http://www.gunbutter.com/
  23. They left out one of the best "Bull Frog" the original salt water tested rust blocker, lubricant and cleaner. Tested in Alaska and by the Navy and Coast Guard. Been using their products for years here on the Carolina coast. Bull Frog Rusthunter Firearm Cleaner and Bull Frog Lubricant with Rust Blocker for every day use, Emitter Shield for the safe, tackle and tool box.
