  1. I’ve been asked to write the stages for a upcoming match and have no idea how to import the props, targets, etc.. into my text what program do you stagewriters use?
  2. Early on I had the issue with them not fitting in the chamber but remedied that by taking about 1/16” off of the bottom of the sizing die to allow the case to be sized nearly to the rim and it solved the problem.
  3. I shoot the C.45S in ROA conversion cylinders but not in a rifle so blowback is not a concern for me. I used .45 auto dies for seating and crimping.
  4. A family gathering in Sedona for Halloween weekend and we have to dress as a movie character, I’m Bad Grandpa. Let’s see yours.
  5. Here’s my set up for making Cowboy .45 Special brass.
  6. The thing about any of the hot peppers is once you de seed them and remove the white membrane inside they lose 99% of their heat. I made scrambled eggs this morning and used 3 serranos, 3 habaneros and 2 jalapeños and there was hardly any heat at all. I’ve won bets before eating habanero chili’s that way. Smart bettors will make you eat the whole pepper, I don’t bet with them.
  7. My wife manages a citrus and avocado farming operation and some of the workers that live there raise most of their produce there on the ranch in their garden. Well they found out that I like hot peppers so they send some home with her on occasion and today they sent home a bunch. Habaneros, Serranos and jalapeño peppers. My step son makes salsa so I’m sending the box of peppers over to him the peppers outside the box I’ll use myself.
  8. Those that dump their unwanted pets out in the country are lower than septic tank sludge. Those poor animals have absolutely no chance unless someone finds them and rescues them. My wife and I have done it many times over the years and also have found them when it was to late.
  9. I’ve had very good luck with Cheddite SG primers.
  10. We got 6/10 of an inch of rain last night in north S.D. County.
  11. Seems to me that direction and support for any type of marketing of the SASS brand/label/identity should come from the top. With the new board onboard I expect to see some type of revamping of their virtually non existent SASS marketing approach. Many, many clubs nationwide, maybe worldwide are on the verge of collapse because of membership loss brought on by many factors. One factor that SASS has 100% control of is how their SASS brand is projected and marketed. Time will tell as to whether it will grow and prosper or wither and die. In many places it’s on life support.
  12. I posted a picture of Kyle Rittenhouse with his AR slung over his shoulder shortly before he was assaulted and used the rifle to defend himself. That was a gross violation of FB community standards and they pulled the plug
  13. For the last two weeks or so the Saloon screen has been white and the only way I could get into it was click on the current subject on the forums page. For the last hour it has been working like it should, no white page and it seems to be much faster. The Saloon is white again.
  14. Dimocrats fighting, how about that!!!
  15. It was my first time at Eldorado and won’t be my last. Great match and fun stages and I got to gig my old friend HELL’S COMIN.
  16. I got banned permanently after the election. Don’t miss it.

    SDQs & MDQs

    1. Cocked pistols in holsters. 2. Dropped guns. 3. Falling guns. 4. leaving loading table with loaded, holstered pistols to go to gun cart or somewhere. 5. Breaking 170. These are the ones that I’ve seen most often.
  18. Get Roger Rapids Lightning manual and he’ll walk you through the disassembly and reassembly. Pay attention to the cartridge stop lever information. On all of my Pedersoli Lightnings that is where problems occurred and I’ll bet that’s where yours is.
  19. My oldest daughter develops social media and hires social media employees for companies and municipalities and in her opinion SASS is really missing the boat by not developing and utilizing the social media venues. Keeping information up to date and current is critical to the success of social media as an advertising or promotion tool. If someone visits your FB page or other media front that has not been updated for weeks, months or even years they won’t pay attention. She was here last month and we were discussing CAS and social media and she commented that EOT 2021 is ancient history and it’s important to have what’s happening now on your social media tools. In my opinion having endless videos of old white guys or young white guys shooting fast or slow stages isn’t going to broaden our membership base. Videos of lady participants, Hispanic participants, Asian participants, African American participants, handicapped participants, young participants, etc….all need to be included. Hiring a full time promotions and marketing person or persons and investing in the hardware and technology to put this together would be a big step forward. The Outlaw Travis James and others would be a wealth of information if asked, I’m sure. Does anyone else out there think the SASS Homepage is extremely dull and boring? How tough would it be to have a looped video on the homepage instead of the same picture month after month? Maybe have a new video weekly. Not many younger folks get their information from the same places that we did growing up, like newspapers, local news and nightly news, etc.. they are focused on digital media and so are we if you really look at it. It may eventually move SASS to have a chat line for their Homepage. SASS depending on its clubs and club members to promote and grow the sport is not going to reap long term rewards, in my opinion.
  20. What marketing efforts? Lousy or otherwise.
