  1. This ↑ ↑ ↑ . But I seen you've already handled that. But not this ↑ ↑ ↑. Not a requirement except in the two costume categories.
  2. SASS has a great many "anomalies" within the covers of the SHB. Understanding the logic would be a trip thru time from the inception of SASS (1987) to the present. For over half the contents of the SHB, the inclusion of a rule is because "someone"... gamed the competition because there wasn't a rule prohibited their charade of "...well it's period," even though it wouldn't be thought of by most folks as "...in the spirit of the game." Take "...ownership of the stage after the first shot downrange".... This came about because a former member of the Wild Bunch would game his performance with
  3. Try these also: Historical Emporium; and here: Wild West Merchantile; also try Spur Western Wear; or Cattle Kate; or Old West Trading Company; There's a couple of others... but inventory in large sizes can be hit or miss! Good Luck.
  4. I don't remember where i got them or what they were, probably owned them 20 years. Lost in the move to TX. My last set of spurs I bought in Columbus, TX at the very 1st THSS shoot. Hand crafted by a fellow named Higginbotham. Browned steel, I've remade the jingle bobs several times!
  5. Then again if you let it out that you have primers you'll be inundated with "friends"!
  6. In Wild Bunch the magazines of the shotguns are stoked. It's only in Cowboy that it's load two, shoot two, repeat as necessary as a nod to the limitation of the double shooter. When I started the faster '97 shooters were dropping one in the ejection port, closing the action and shoving the 2nd round in the magazine. It wasn't until '89 or '90 @EOT that I saw Tequila (EOT Winner '98) use the single loading technique. IIRC Evil Roy (EOT Winner 2001) taught the technique in his classes & videos. The ONLY time I shot a '97 in a Cowboy match was in AL, borrowing g
  7. I always thought they were called a "Lightning"... but mine might be a misprint?
  8. Here are 2 affirmative answers to your question. Along with an equal number of negatives... the rest... not so much! Maybe it depends on the actual coating?
  9. If you're not going to reload... you'll probably be best off going with the 45-70. If you're ultimately going to reload, it probably doesn't matter, from the 38-55 the 40-65 or the 45-70, it becomes a matter of bullet selection, powder choice and what your goals are. As for barrel length, the only advantage of the 32" is the increased sight radius, whether you use are the barrel sights are install a tang sight. Which I would recommend. Some feel that anything over 28" is a waste of steel, as all the powder is already burned by that point in the bullet's travel down the bore. Yo
  10. OH YES YOU CAN! And FARTHER south too! In fact, so far west, it turns into Tomorrow!!!
  11. I still like mine for that reason. I have two "C" series 1851s for my main match guns, a back up in a Signature Series and and OLD ASM marked one that was made with parts from the batch produce by Uberti. All have been reworked to have Manhattan gates, Ruger plunger and hand spring, Slix nipples and as long as I do my job, as reliable as my cartridge guns.
  12. It's a "thing"... I had a fair amount of success with it and 240 gr HPs. I actually had three guns stolen at the same time... The police recovered the Blackhawk, and I found another mdl 64A Winchester...
  13. Actually, the top eject version was made for only one year... 1969. Hits hard at both ends, has problems feeding ammo other than RFN or TC shaped bullets... the one I had stolen was especially problematic with wide meplat Keith style semi-wadcutters. As I understand it, it was the shortest run of any model Winchester 94, including all the Commemoratives. Like all other mdl 94s, or mdl94AE, for that matter, it isn't especially slick when chambered in pistol cartridges.
  14. A sense of fashion?
  15. Or, just take yours into work and leave it in the break room.
  16. I can see a need for training on how to keep your cool in the heat. Fluids are your friend... sweat is your friend. If you're NOT sweating in the heat, you're at risk!
  17. Frankly, I'm fed up with this entire subject, it reads more and more like whiney millennials asking for everything to be given to them. Like those of us that have been playing this game didn't have to scrimp, save, go without or trade other things so we could play. Whittle it down so just dies a slow death? Our club is 30 years old this year, and for the year prior, I'd been putting on matches at gun range that wouldn't even let me join. If all the clubs around folded up tomorrow, I'd scrap up some berms, buy a bunch of steel, shoot by myself. I'd enjoy the distinction of having started
  18. HEAD. Surely the Lady was talking about the part in her hair!
  19. Well... What's there to like/dislike about it? Ejectors, or...? As heavy when compared to the Handi-Rifle, like their tomato stakes are when compared to other leverguns?
  20. Surely that must be a rhetorical question! But, seein's as you're way up there in "Yankee Land" (Please note, I capitalized it, not a derogatory label)... of course not!
  21. WHAT? Are you kidding? I take you've never been to very many cowboy shoots. We've had everything from, "I've never shot a gun before..." to "...how do you load this?" More 1st time shooters have started at a cowboy action match than any other discipline. I've shot from coast to coast, the Canadian line to further south than Mexico, even competed in international SASS matches... Can't tell you how many times I've been asked to teach someone's wife how to work her SAA... Why do you think I shoot so slow, interrupt myself during the course of fire to discuss the weather and target order.
  22. What Pat Riot said. Be cautious in how much metal you take off! BTW, is this a mdl 94, or a mdl 94AE? If the former, I'll take off you hands, it'd replace the one I had stolen...
  23. Like what ya did there!
  24. If it's too hot to wear a long sleeve shirt, it's too hot to sit on the patio having a mint julip! 'Sides, nobody wants to see those hairy-azzed sticks you call arms! Snakebite, are you wanting someone to back you up on enforcing the rules? I'll be right out, right after CARB relaxes their attitudes...
