  1. Not talking legal or not. If you read my thread it is talking about what most people, especially newbies, would consider traditional. If I was interested in checking out CAS as a newbie, my first question would be”what is cowboy about that shooter?” You can read the rule book to get all the details. I am talking about first impressions of the sport. Plus, the short sleeves sure don’t help.
  2. I’m looking at it from a new shooters or someone interested in the sport perspective. Short sleeves aren’t legal and these look like short sleeves whether they are or not. Very confusing for a new shooter. This is cowboy action shooting, even though the hat is legal it doesn’t fit most people’s idea of a cowboy hat. Once again, confusing for someone checking it out or a new shooter trying to figure out the costume requirements. Why not show what most of us consider traditional cowboy dress for a cowboy shooting sport? That is my opinion and I’m sticking with it.
  3. I don’t think that’s the look that SASS would want to promote.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. How did you use the WD-40? Just spray on and wipe off?
  7. I had the same question. I just picked up 100 Hornady .454 round balls yesterday and was shocked at the price. I haven’t purchased any in many years. I can buy 45 caliber bullets a lot cheaper even today. I will be looking for a cheaper on line source for the round balls.
  8. They show their 45-70 carbines under the “falling block” tab. It looks like you hit the black powder tab. Thanks.
  9. Let me try that answer again. 100 yards most of the time but I have access to a 300 yard range and might try that. Thanks.
  10. It is a new carbine with stock sites. I haven’t seen it yet , plan on next week. I am more interested in the overall quality of the product. I was curious if anyone had any experience with them. Thanks. 100 yards most of the time although I have access to a 300 yard range and might try that. Thanks

  12. I may have the opportunity to look at a Chiappa Sharps in 45-70. Seems like I have read that the quality may be less than desirable and I should stay away from it. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on them? Thanks!
  13. 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.
