  1. The Arizona Yavapai Rangers WR warmup match scheduled for Feb. 22 is being cancelled. Predictions of up to an inch of rain in the area starting after midnight, Fri. is forcing the cancellation. The forest road quickly becomes impassable. DC
  2. The Arizona Yavapai Rangers, Verde Valley, will also be having a 6 stage match on Sat, Feb. 22. Many of our members are WR contestants & for the 1st time in several yrs, we'll be shooting our Feb. monthly match. 'Bout an 1 1/4 hrs from Ben Avery. Sign up at 9, shoot at 10. Come join us!!
  3. And to be clear, the "how to shoot the stage" states ENGAGE the 6 plate rack targets and then alternate the buffaloes for 4 rnds.. Very clear directions. Seems purty clear to me but, considering my limited experience, maybe I'm wrong.
  4. Just sayin'. It's difficult to believe that a simple and correct call of a P & 1 miss in this occurrence has generated 3 pages of opinions. I'm a short-timer in Sass, only started in 2005. Been an RO2 since 2006 with several renewals. I've witnessed almost this same scenario more then once. It's a slam dunk call, folks! Stay current on the rules, understand them & problem doesn't exist. Just my considered & ( I believe) qualified opinion. DC
  5. "bout all we ever did was cut of about 3 1/2 - 4" off the stock spring. Easier to load & easily holds 10 38 spec. OAL was approximately 1.475. DC
  6. This a used Mernickle rig purchased in 2014. It is a Quick Cal shooting system with a new cost of $629 for the configuration of belt, right strongside holster and right-handed crossdraw holster. A left strongside holster was purchased in 2018 at a cost of $200. The holsters are molded to fit Ruger Single six 32 HR revolvers with 4 5/8" barrels. The belt measures 38" overall, 33" from tang to middle buckle hole. A 2" belt extender is included, as is a cartridge slide for 6 32 cal. bullets. There are a total of 9 holes punched in the belt to accommodate pinning the holsters with Chicago screws in different configurations. Asking price is $300 plus $15 shipping.
  7. Think I got what you're looking for. Been converted to 209 primer. Original musket cap breech plug & bolt would be included. Rifle is in very good condition. Scope is a Bushnell Sharpshooter 3x9. $200 plus shipping. PM me if interested. DC
  8. Most 200s & 280s were made with split extractors. My 10 yr old 200E still has them. Most skb smiths, i.e, Johnny Meadows, now weld them up as part of the action job. DC
  9. Proud to say we got a pristine 280 12g last spring thru gun broker for $765 & shipping. JM did his complete action work so we're in it for under $1,100. Retiring my old 200E with the stupendous wood work by Taz & the 280 will be my match SG.
  10. For those of you that shoot/have shot in the southwest for quite some time, you may have competed in the annual Yuma Territorial Prison Breakout. In 2004, a founding member of the Yuma CAS club was unfortunately killed, along with his best friend, in the hills north of Phoenix, by a crazy young man who snuck into their camp to steal their belongings. The two people killed were KC & Gimpy. KC, aka, Omer Casey, was Squeaky's uncle. When we attended Omer's funeral, we saw many people dressed in 1890's cowboy clothes?? At the memorial, Omer's gun cart & firearms were on the altar with the preacher. That's the day we found out about SASS! In Jan, 2005, we bought our 1st Rugers from Early Times in Yuma, followed by a set of 3 screw Blackhawks from him in Feb. We jumped in with both feet and in 2006 Squeaky won 5th place, Lady's Modern at the Yuma Breakout, dedicated to her Uncle "KC". We've never looked back since then but WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER Uncle Omer Casey, a true cowboy shooter, and BTW, one helluva 1911 gunsmith, nationally renowned in his day. (And one damn good custom farmer!!) DC & Squeaky Hare
