         I tie my bandana like a necktie.  I think it's called a four-in-hand knot. 

    It works like a slip-knot, it unties fast and if it comes loose, it can tighten back up by pulling a corner.  


         The bandana is large:  32" x 32" or 36" x 36" and made from silk or I usually get the bandanas from J. Hornaday Dry Goods made from the wicking material.


         Using the necktie knot keeps the bandana in a loop so you just slide it over your head to put it on and take it off.


    I hope this helps,


    Yep same here. Be careful with the Buckaroo knot if it gets hung up it only gets tighter.:wacko:

    As far as BigLube bullets, in my experience, I can shoot a 6-stage match out of a 24" barrel, and never have to swab the barrel, and get no fouling out.  I shot a 44-40 30" '73 for many years with Mav Dutchman bullets from Springfield Slim, and never fouled it out either.
    I personally hate to have to "clean" my guns several times a match, so I am a BigLube fan.


    This^ When Heather and I shoot BP we share the guns so I only have to clean one set of guns. Never had a problem shooting 6  stages X 2. I am a Big Lube fan too, 2, also.:)

  3. One idea that has worked for CFDA is, at the table have some forms they can fill out to win a drawing for a FREE one on one intro to cowboy action shooting. Later call them to let them know they won. Then arrange a time where you can handle two or three at a time on the range or at a match. Everybody wins:D Good Luck:)

    I started thinking about it.  If the shooter holds the watch, then they could close it at any time (like saying a starting line) and then "standby...beep".  If the whole song had to play, that would be a pretty long stage.

    I like that idea :D 

  5. L4 L5 S1 S2 nooo fun. I knew my offshore days were over:(, but I found SAS on TV while recovering some 18 years ago.:o Tequila and Co on the Outdoor channel. I said to myself "now I can do that". :D

  6. The best way now is to go back to how we used to do it when Dick Dastardly ordered from Lee. Get a group buy together with Lee six cavity molds. May need to send them an unsized bullet if they no longer have the specs. Set up was $100 then $65 per mould, I forget what the min order was. If anyone wants to set up a buy of the .32 caliber I'm in, that's the only one I don't have.




    The waaaaay back time machine:o

  7. Howdy all, having a little trouble with our club which is a private club 501 C7 non profit. Our members are restriced to two guests per member. In the past this applied for bringing out guests for casual shooting, not SASS, CFDA, and IDPA etc.. matches.  Our cowboy matches were always exempt from this. Now we  have new board members, new pres, new attorney. One suggestion was to act as third party, but that would mean having to purchase our own insurance  Anyone have a simular situation.??


    Thanks, Jefro

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

    Would like to see a MSDS on it.


    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

    Wyatt!!:o  I thought you gave up them fancy cigars:wacko::ph34r:

  11. A few things I do like about this, the hover feature, it's easy reading and posting pictures.

    Q: Can our signature lines be recouped. On another thread, Misty said she would check it out

    Q: And the Quick Navigator is gone, can we get that back?? It made it real easy to go back and forth to the other SASS sites. If you mean the little box on the right of the forums list, I miss it too. Like I wrote earlier, I asked the office staff to have someone monitor this thread. This is something I hope gets restored.

    Q: Can our notes be found. I had several notes in the profile section from when I first started. A couple of them were from Driftwood Johnson and J Mark Flint with some  early BP tips. Others were rules interpretations  from PW with examples. Help, tech support!


    03/11/2017 Saturday: Signatures were restored this morning (last night?).

  12. Red Dot is more temp sensitive than most.


    Huh?? :huh: Never heard or seen that before, and I know alota folks that use Red Dot, and some that load right at min. Red Dot is a clean fast burning powder, not position or temp sensitive. They have to be loading way below min to get it to act like Rangers. I load Red Dot in all my smokeless stuff .38, .45, 44/40, 45acp, 12 ga....never a problem.....but I prefer BP :D Good Luck :)

  13. Howdy John Boy, for CFDA loading 209s I just put the box upside down on the bunch and push tray-pull carton. They are all in line upside down on the bench. I like the primer feed on my Grabber, once you have the right height drop you may need to adjust the tube in or out to hit perfect every time. To fine tune use open end wrenches on retaining clip and ease up or down depending where you need the primer to fall. Minor adjustments can be made with feed tube installed using wrench on both sides of the clip. When in doubt remove the primer feed and add a filler block, or screwdriver tip or shaft to take up the space inside the clip. Then adjust in (down) or out (up) with good fitting wrenches. Good Luck :)
