  1. Just an FYI regarding external-hammer 12ga. SxS's Rossi Coach guns (20" bbls.) have IC/M chokes TTNs (20") are cylinder bored. I know a number of shooters who have used them successfully for clays and trap (as well as reg'lar CAS).
  2. Have you seen that happen at a SASS match? Were the shooters MDQ'd for "Any discharge at the loading or unloading areas." ?
  3. The Wranglers are the same frame/grip size as the Single Six.
  4. $179.99 x 2 today! Cashed in a $100 gift card = $259.98 + $10 OSP fee. Twenty minute transaction! Add-on $25.98 for two Wolff spring packs...under $300 total for the pair.
  5. $15 flat tax on new bicycles with 26"+ tires and retail price > $200. Collected at point of retail sale. Source
  6. Don't forget to replace the front sight! "Ruger Blackhawk and Ruger Old Army adjustable sight frames may be modified by removing the rear sight assembly, welding up the sight cutout, re-contouring the frame top strap, and cutting a new sight notch to replicate Colt SAA or Vaquero frames. The ramp front sight must be replaced with a blade-type in order to be allowed as a fixed sight model revolver." SHB p.37
  7. He could shoot "Duelist-style" in the Senior category if he wants to. Revolvers may be shot in any SASS legal shooting style – EXCEPT Gunfighter SHB p.5 "AGE BASED CATEGORIES"
  8. NO. Senior Duelist is a sub-category of Duelist and must comply with the rules for Duelist category. When breaking down all style/costume categories, the regulations for the base category is to be applied first, then the age limits. SHB p.10 "CATEGORY MATRIX"
  9. I would consider that a legal repair as opposed to a modification. Same as using pins or dowels to repair a cracked buttstock.
  10. Then why post it on an open forum?
  11. As mentioned numerous times during the past couple years' discussions, the method specified in the approved rule change was used for many years by many clubs before the automatic SDQ was codified in the SHB ten years ago.
  12. The link to THIS PAGE is accessible from the SASS HANDBOOKS page (just below the RO Course Materials)...and has been up for quite a few years.
  13. The Territorial Governor Wire is a CLOSED forum. Access is only available to TGs for posting or viewing.
  14. That has been noted. The actual verbiage in the SHB will read. "...pointed safely downrange..."
  15. What part of "...the shooter will be directed to point the rifle safely into the back berm..." are some of y'all choosing to ignore?
  16. The categories that disallow "adjustable sights" specify "Any main match FIXED SIGHT revolver". "Any main match revolver" includes Ruger Blackhawks. Revolver requirements are on p.38
  17. FWIW - The rescinded rule was NOT universally applied throughout the SASS community for that length of time. It was only added to the SHB in 2009 (see item #21). Previous to that, there were Regional variations (including the rule as changed). The ROC (at that time) discussed the two primary applications and voted to standardize and codify the rule. (That vote was not unanimous, BTW)
  18. If/when that happens (while resolving a cocked rifle situation), ejection of the unfired round when the rifle is levered to begin the shooting string would result in the same SDQ.
  19. The agenda item that was approved for a vote (and subsequently passed) only addressed moving with a cocked RIFLE from the LT. That had been discussed "as is" for the past 2+ years; having been approved for a TG vote in 2018 and reiterated in 2019. REF: 2018 EoT TG meeting & 2019 EoT TG meeting There was no rule change proposed regarding SHOTGUNS (which are generally not loaded at the LT). Closed shotguns from the LT had previously been addressed in a number of "WtC?" threads on the various SASS Wires over a year ago.
  20. The rule change only applies to RIFLES The applicable rule is a SDQ for: Changing location/moving with a live round under a cocked hammer or firearm with the hammer down on a live round. Regarding shotguns closing from the LT to the stage, it depends on what type shotgun. An external-hammer SxS or single-shot shotgun would be a "no call" if the hammer(s) are down on empty chamber(s). (Same condition a rifle is brought from the LT...simply open the shotgun before staging). A hammerless SxS, single-shot, 1897, or 1887 which is cocked on opening that closes would be a SDQ. Changing location with a long gun with the action closed and the hammer cocked. SHB p.23 - Stage Disqualification Best practice is to immediately STOP and open the shotgun (assisted if necessary). or Learn to carry the shotgun in a manner which doesn't cause it to close.
  21. Proposed rule change: Eliminate the automatic Stage DQ penalty for leaving the loading table with a cocked rifle. In such instances, the shooter will be directed to point the rifle safely into the back berm, bring the hammer to full cock if it is in the half-cock/safety position, then pull the trigger. If no round is fired, the shooter will be directed to finish staging firearms in order to start the stage (No Call). If a round fires when the shooter pulls the trigger, the shooter will be assessed a Stage DQ and directed to proceed to the unloading table. PASSED by vote of the Territorial Governors. YES - 208 (75.3%) NO -- 68 (24.6%) Effective January 2020
  22. Minor Safety Violation (MSV) infractions include: - Leaving empty or live round(s) in a magazine, action, or carrier of the long gun in which it was loaded SHB p.22 NO PENALTY for making the shotgun "Safe for movement" by closing the action and dry-firing to drop the hammer on the empty chamber. Also safe for restaging in that condition, but NOT with rounds in the magazine.
