  1. Thanks for the replies. I appreciate all the different ideas. Not sure how I’m going to proceed but at least I’ve got some options. Thanks again!
  2. Does anyone use these? I need to drift a sight on a 92 Rossi. They have a 4 pin starter set that would probably be all I need. I am looking at something made in the USA and these came up. I haven’t found any brick& mortar stores that carry them and the shipping is about a third of the cost but that seems to be way it is now days. Any other suggestions?
  3. It is amazing how much impact the media has on western clothes from boots, hats, holsters etc. I always enjoy looking at old photos that show how they dressed in the period.
  4. It would also be nice if SASS would fix their website. There is still an error message when you try to open a club page after you go to locate a local match. It has been that way for a long time and I have seen the excuse for it. I know you can click and get around it but not everyone, especially new or perspective members, are going to know this. Looks like we would want to make it easy for people to find a local match on our own website.
  5. Thanks for all of the replies. I think I will try the procedure to start with empties to shuck and then load dummies to try to replicate a match as closely as possible. Got some good suggestions on how to load the dummy rounds. Thanks again.
  6. I’m sure this has been covered before but I tried several searches and couldn’t come up with anything. I would like to make some practice rounds for my 12 gauge shotgun that simulated the weight and feel of a live round as closely as possible. I know that I will need to fill in the primer hole with something , unless it’s best to leave the spent primer in, and need some weight in the shell. I think it would be good for me to mark the practice shells somehow although I plan to keep them completely separate from any live ammo. I’ll be using feather lite cases. Any suggestions are appreciated. T
  7. I think the other thing that happens is that we unintentionally scare people away by making them think it costs more than it actually does. I see new questions about a rifle or revolver someone is interested in purchasing and they are asking for advice. I see a lot of well intended answers about that gun needs “slicking up” by a gunsmith to be competitive. I wonder how many potential shooters are turned off by this additional perceived cost. I know the advice is offered in the best intentions but new shooters may miss the fact that they can “shoot “ a match with stock weapons as many of us do.
  8. I think it is critical to keep the cost as low as possible both in firearms and ammunition used. I think a category such as working cowboy or whatever you want to call it, with one revolver and one rifle would help people get started. They could compete and would use less ammo while competing. This might help more people get started and they could pick up other guns, if they so desired, at a later date to compete in other categories. I also like the thought of .22 being a permanent category. By using the 2 gun category a person could get started very reasonably with a Ruger wrangl
  9. My eyes are not what they used to be and I'm wondering if a different rear sight would help on my 1866 rifle and my 92 I use as a backup. They both have the semi buckhorn sights now. Is anyone using the full buckhorn and any pros and cons of the sight would be welcome. Thanks.
