  1. For your information I am a member, as my post shows. As are most of those that I shoot with at these clubs. I also attend regionals and state level matches. I also run or assist in running parts of these matches. The posted question was why some clubs are unaffiliated. I gave some reasons. I didn't get personal or state anything derogatory or belittling of anyone's' decisions.
  2. We do through another club. That is a decision each club has to make.
  3. What does a small club get from SASS other than the Hand Books and the listing? Initially SASS charged $100.00 to be affiliated, but has since lowered that to $50.00. I personally started a small club and paid all of the expenses out of my pocket. I provided the targets, tables, score sheets, brochures, etc. SASS had advertised that the club would get promotional materials, a flag, and the listing. We did get a listing eventually after a couple of corrections. A club has to have a Territorial Governor that will claim the club, a certain amount of insurance, funds to pay the local or sponsor, etc. There are several nonaffiliated clubs that are doing just fine. Most of the members do not attend large matches and are happy just shooting locally.
  4. Then Uberti, AWA, Taurus Thunderbolt, Pedersoli, etc.
  5. Several clubs in these neck of the woods dropped their affiliation when SASS initiated a fee to be affiliated.
  6. I have made four carts from these. I leave them at the range for folks to use. If you change your mind about shipping, let me know and I will take them off your hands.
  7. I have a ss Taurus Thunder Bolt, which was designated a tomato stake years ago. In my opinion, the Chaparral is just a prettier tomato stake. I have seen a couple and they all had operating issues.
  8. Ditto for the above. Posse #11 may not have had all of the winners, it did have some fine shooters, both male and female. We had an excellent Posse Leader who made the whole she bang run smooth. Everyone seemed to step-up and lend a hand with the posse chores which is always a good thing. And Fun was had by all. Frontier Lone Rider
  9. Now, if only you hadn't kept telling me about all of those mysterious misses that I kept getting. Other than that, this was what a Regional is supposed to be. Plenty of fast shooters, I am not one of them, good scenarios and excellent targets. The pards were friendly and helpful. Everyone kept asking me if I was OK? At least I am still ticking and shooting my SASS. As I tell my wife, I just make a lot of smoke and noise, plus meeting such friendly folks. (and Yes Cheyenne Culpepper is one of the nice guys). The Boy Scouts were there to help in so many ways. It was nice to see the young folks doing something right. I hope to be back again next year for Guns of August. Frontier Lone Rider
  10. I have several pair, all gloss. The sun has never been a problem and I occasionally look for the front sight, but most times do not.
  11. I have a Huglu and a Kahn, both made in Turkey. The Huglu is a nice looking shotgun and appears to be well made. It came with individual velvet bags for each part. I bought it for using black powder. But, it has a Dolls' Nose which gets in the way of loading fast, as does the Kahn. That is a part which protrudes from the barrels, between the chambers and locks into the receiver for strength. If you can navigate around that protrusion, it is a fine shotgun. I understand that the newer ones do not have that feature.
  12. 2-3 It has no affect on my decision to attend or not. But, I do like to see who is coming and who might be shooting in my category.
