    I'm not questioning your actions as they seem to be within the rules. I guess I just thought that, if the seller accepted your offer for less than the posted price, it would make the sale an auction.

     

    Again, I don't understand what is okay in the Classifieds and had many questions about them.

    Howdy Miss Allie, lets say Hoss has that hat for sale (1st I'll Take It) for $6.00. I call him on the phone and tell him "I don't want that ugly hat band on that hat" I'll give you $5 bucks and you keep the hat band". Hoss says "well, you give me $5 bucks and then buy me an RC Cola next time I see you". "ok" "ok". Now, I still have go to classifieds and post an "I'll Take It" so Hoss can mark it SOLD. If while we were haggling on the phone (or PM) and someone posted an I'll Take It first, then that's the end. They get the hat and the ugly band.;) 

        By the way, we now have our neighbors cat:wub: First one I ever liked:)

    In my mind, if a poster says “first I’ll take it, gets it” then a buyer asking a question assumes the risk that someone else may buy it no questions asked. 
     

    ive seen items that I was interested in, but not at the quoted price. I typically send a OM with my offer. If somebody says I’ll take it at posted price I respect sellers right to sell it to him. 

    Ta Daaaa!!;)

  3. Local eye Doc knew exactly what I wanted. Left lens my regular script + bifocal........right eye for front sight. Added a pair of B-52 side shields. Works great, and easy to read stages. Used the same type wire frames I wear now with the darkest gray progressive tint. Good Luck:)


  4. Howdy BK, lotta matches between now and October...go to as many as you can. Call the MD and they can usually have enough guns and gear for you to try. Most of the time folks will be handing you all the guns you need to carry;) Best to try before you buy...Good Luck:)

  5. 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:)

    CLAYS will indeed be a great choice.  Unless you like REALLY light loads, stick with 7/8 ounce in the CB 1178 wad, with about 15 grains of powder in the Winchester AA hulls (also works in Rem STS hulls).   Neither will require more than just "touching the powder" wad seating pressure.  And at the low chamber pressure this load makes, any primer will be fine.

     

    Good luck, GJ

    This, 7/8oz shot , Gray wad, 14-15gr Clays. Good Luck:)

     I guess the point is to wear 100% natural fibers, keep your body completely covered, wear your Western hat, and drink a lot of water.   

    He dresses like Injun, as in no shirt, nor shoes...etc..etc...but he does drink alota water.;)

    Thanks Jefro.  

    Did you file down the sights for SASS then?  Or to help you fast draw?

     

     

    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:)


  9. 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

    But the reason is to use one of the same guns for CFDA...and SASS.  

     

     

    Calvera

    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:)

    There is a shooter who comes to the West Virginia State Match that wears bib overalls, a moonshiners hat and always goes barefoot.

    Hmm:unsure: Nobody would shoot with only bibs, a hat, and no shirt or shoes:wacko:. I'm  just sayin:ph34r:


  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:)

  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:)

    I never heard of it. Does sound interesting. When did it come out?

    Would like to see a MSDS on it.

    OLG

    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:wacko: Watch Todd Jarret run 1000 rounds as fast as he can:o I was glad to see how well Ballistol did on this fellers tests, except the smell part he didn't like:D
