    Fort Miller, Madera CA 1999.  I had all my hair then, and it was still brown!



    Bernie, the Fort Miller match is in Clovis, Ca. It is Bigger and Better than Ever. Third Weekend in April. If yer still getting around you owe it yourself to make a run at it.

  2. 60.00 ! Were are you shopping ?

    They are bending you over at those prices.


    I just bought a New 12ga Lee load all on Amazon for 43.59 Delivered.

    But the bottom line is if someone does the Math of buying BP loads,

    Vs buying a Lee load all .

    And making BP loads them selves.

    Cost wise its a No brainer .

    But Not everyone can or wants to reload .


    There is a lot of good information here for them to make that decision.



    This is just what came up when I typed it into the browser.Obviously they are available for less.

    Point being made was that for the occasional 20 ga BP shooter they could get setup to produced a few boxes without spending much money and avoid the task of trying to find a place that sells 20 ga BP shells.

    It would certainly not be my first choice for shell loading, but if I only wanted a few boxes a year, and didn't already have a shell loader, I would consider one just for those few occasions.

  3. Lee makes an inexpensive, attractively priced shotgun shell reloader, the Lee Load-All. It's available in 20 gauge. I suggest you investigate that option to start with, then see where you can get the best deal. It may be your best option, given what seems to be your limited requirement.


    I had one in 16 gauge and it worked very well. I later switched to 12 gauge and decided to use commercial shells.


    Start with this link.

    I second this... the Lee machine can be had new for $60. BP 20 ga shells would most likely cost you at least $XX/box. If you buy the loader, shot, powder, and primers, I'd bet that you would still come out ahead just loading 10 boxes. Loading BP Shot shells is easy as pie. I'm sure that you can get a recipe from any number of people on this forum.





  4. I hate it when there are posts Not Selling anything!



    too many post selling nothing!

    Humm, I looked through what I could, and this is the only one I found not selling, wanting to buy or give away something. So, I guess that this one post asking about this forum is too many to suit you. IMO, this is the perfect place to find out what folks think of the Classified forum. There are many who look here first, often, and only here. It is their opinion that I was wanting to hear. I had a recent less than stellar experience here, and just wondered if it was a fluke or a trend... sounds to me like it was a fluke.



  5. Out of curiosity, wouldn't it be more cost effective to just get a cross draw holster for that setup?

    Yes it would if, except that I have a couple of very nice custom Cross Draw rigs. My wife got this same setup, and loves it... so I thought that I would try it. Of course she has only used two strong side holsters, so didn't have to change her memory or stance. O-well, like Ringer said... it's only money! Ha!

  6. After a 4 month wait I received my Mernickle High Performace Holsters, Gun Belt and Shotgun Belt. Models HP1REF1, HPSG1REF1. Size to center hole is 43". Fits 36-38" waist, with a hole either way. Cartridge slide is for 38/357

    Cost $400 for the Holster rig, $140 for the Shotgun Belt + shipping = $560 total cost. I used it for two hours, that's all it took for me to decide that after 25ys of using a cross draw rig in this game that I am not going to change now.


    For sale $400 + shipping No 4 month wait




    Go to Mernickles web site to see what they look like. They are the Gunfighter Brown. Can't seem to get photo's to post here.




  7. I've bought and sold on the SASS wire. All transactions have gone well. I've gone into it figgerin' if I can't trust a fellow Cowboy/Cowgirl who can I trust. A couple things I sold I shipped B4 getting paid based on the Cowboy trust and wasn't let down.

    This is the best bunch of Pards going, in opinion.

    Most of the folks go by the admonition that their word is their bond. I've only found one person in all these years who has tried to cheat me. Hey, if he needs the money that bad, he can keep it.

  8. What has been your experience Buying or Selling on the SASS Classified? I've completed quite a few deals using the SASS wire and they have gone very well. I find that most folks in our Cowboy community are a honest bunch of folks who do what they say. Most!



  9. If you shoot Duelist and are old enough to shoot Elder Statesman at EOT 2017


    When you fill out your entry request Elder Statesman Duelist, if they have enough to make a category in the comment Box.


    I know of 4 Members who would like to shoot Elder Statesman Duelist.



    Yeah! :P



  10. I can't even remember how many pairs of hearing aids I've had.... at least 15+ pairs. They have come a long way. My insurance buys me a pair every two years, so I sell the old pair on ebay for CHEAP. Years of Jet blast, and thousands of high pitched muffin fans while working for the FAA just totally destroyed all of my high pitch hearing, and greatly damaged the mid frequencies. These new hearing aids are really neat... they take the sound that is too high for you to hear at any volume, transpose it to a lower frequency that you are able to hear. It works very well. The OLD way of doing it just tried to amplify the higher frequencies, which leads to very poor sound, and lots of feed back. All of this forces you to use a closed canal type of fitting, which gives your "In a barrel", un-natural sound. I get NONE of that with these new aids.(Phonak B-R series), and no batteries to buy, ever!


    I hate the Timers that have the high pitched tone (like the one's that they use to use at WR), because I can not hear them with my ear plugs in. This leads me to remove them in order to hear the start, which just further hurts the situation. IMO, touching my shoulder is not a good option, and is only done as a last resort.


    For every 3 db of increase the sound doubles! So... if you go from say 70 db to 73 db, it is twice as loud.


    Wear your hearing protection!



  11. Tnx for the advice.. I'll do it tomorrow. I have been using a handful some putty like stuff. I like the 1/2 ball idea. I've also been using a large hammer to regain strength in my wrist... the handle allows for adjusting how much weight you use by choking up or down on it.
