    More pictures please!

    That looks very doable for the non machinist to build,

    The main part that fires the primer is available online.  Look up 12 Gauge Trip Wire Alarm, available on Amazon and other vendors.  Plunger box would need to activate the alarm, not very difficult to do.   It is a cool prop, nice job building it.

    It was going off as I closed the action.  I purchased new firing pins and when I disassembled it, the original pins were dragging thru the bushing.  Looks like it was possible that at times the pin wouldn't be retracted causing the gun to fire as it was closed.

    I had the same issue with my shotgun.  The ramp inside the forearm that cocking levers ride on was worn and when cocked it wasn't properly setting the sear and trigger.  It was only catching the leading edge.  Vibration upon closing the action dropped the hammer, subsequently fired the round.  Found the problem by removing the stock so I could see the action when cocking.


    Had the ramps welded to add material, filling in the worn area.  Hasn't happened again in the last 12 years.


  3. Years ago I combined both parts of Larsen E Pettifogger's article on swapping the triggers on a Stoeger double barrel.  His article shows, in detail the trigger swap and is helpful if you want to do other work or cleaning of your Stoeger.  This was before all past Chronicles were available on Sassnet.com and many had limited internet speed.  The PDF I shared on my Google drive was much smaller than Chronicle files. 


    This year I received numerous requests for access to my drive file.  For account security I have removed sharing.  The articles can be found in the 2009 November and December Chronicles found at this link. Both segments start on page 40 each month.

  4. I saw this on Jackson Hole Gang's facebook group Wednesday, thought a NJ member would mention it on the wire, but haven't seen anything yet. 


    I didn't know him but his knowledge about reloading, shooting black powder and links he shared about reloading were helpful to me.


    My condolences to his family and friends,

    This is very strange. When I turned off wi-fi on my iPhone to use data, the Chronicle downloaded instantly.  The reason it's strange is because up until the new SASS website appeared, I could always download Chronicles with wi-fi instantly using either the Mac or the iPhone, and other pdf downloads (not from Sassnet.com) continue to download instantly on both devices using wi-fi. :blink:

    Maybe a setting on your firewall. New hosting server may require updates to your computer.

    I can't download the Chronicle. It stops about 2/3 of the way there and freezes.

    Works for me.  Downloaded October 2022 in about 5 seconds.

  7. The time has come, setup is tomorrow and the show starts Saturday at 9:00 AM.


    We have 37 members that signed up to help staff the show booth, however there are still three evening shifts without any help for Misty. Wed. 8th, Thurs. 9th & Sat. 11th, if you are planning on attending the show on any of these dates and could lend a hand, even for an hour or two, it would be most helpful. Dress the part in “Cowboy” clothes, stop by and help Misty for a while.


    SASS booth has been changed and we are now located at Booth #350, midway down the hall from the NRA booth.

  8. Over the past few years we have been hoping that SASS would be an exhibitor at the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg. We almost had a booth in 2014, but timing was not on our side. Dates for the Shot Show and NRA convention didn’t provide enough time to ship the booth for use at all three shows. This year SASS has made that commitment, there will be a Cowboy Action Shooting booth at the show. Their space will be located in the Shooting Sports Hall, booth #880. The Great American Outdoor Show scheduled to be held February 4-12, 2017 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.


    Misty Moonshine is flying in to run the booth, she needs help staffing the booth and help inform attendees of what SASS cowboy action shooting is and how the game is played. It is a long show, 9 days long. We have set time slots, two per day. If you are planning to attend the show perhaps you could help staff the booth part of the day. Currently there are seven slots where Misty is without any help.


    With this show bring in about 200,000 attendees, it would provide needed exposure to the sport we all enjoy. I am hopeful that this will help generate some interest in the show and inspire others to volunteer to staff the booth. It is a great opportunity to recruit new shooters. In order to get information out to helpers Misty has posted January 5th as the deadline for signup.


    You could contact Misty directly at: misty@sassnet.com or call the office at 505-843-1320.


    To sign up please follow this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040f4da4ae2ca02-thegreat1


    On the sign up page, select the time you can help, check the “Sign Up” box and click on “Submit and Sign Up” at the bottom of the page. You will be taken to another page to fill in your name and email. The qty box is where you can indicate the number of helpers, if you are signing up another helper at the same time. You could use your real name or alias. I would suggest putting your alias in the comments field if you sign up with your real name. Misty is pulling information off this sign up page so she can provide show information directly to each volunteer .

  9. Hi Misty,


    I signed up for myself and the Red Eyed Kid. I did it on the the sign up sheet. Not sure if I need to sign him up on his own.





    Dice, Your sign up is fine as is, you listed how many helpers and who will be there. Misty can see the signup live anytime before the show or at the show to view the helpers listed.


    Thank you,





    can't figure out that sign up thing.

    Dice and I are down for the 10-2 shift on 2/7/17

    Put both of us down for the 2-7 shift also; we'll do all day.


    Red-Eyed Kid


    Red-Eyed Kid, I signed both you and Lenny Dice up for the 2-7 shift. The only email I have is one for Lenny Dice, he should receive a notification on this signup. Please let me know if anything changes and I can modify the schedule.
