  1. What I'm hoping to hear is that Ruger will completely modernize the production of the 1894 and re-tool from scratch. It would be kind of fitting if they made both great pistols AND a great lever rifle for SASS. Also they make the 10/22 and the Vaquero in stainless... how about a Marlin 1894 in 357? That might really be a possibility now.
  2. Yeah, it's sprung out. Replace it. That can also happen if you have a round stovepipe and ram the extractor into it. It only takes once if you close it hard enough.
  3. Smokin' it up as usual I see. Congrats man!
  4. We have been using 1/4 AR500 for years now in cowboy matches. I think it has been more than 4 years of monthly matches and annuals and a few of them are finally starting to bow just a little. No cratering issues at all. Still a lot of life left in them. Very light to move and very affordable compared to thicker sheets.
  5. Or it might be like our range, which requires the guns to be covered or enclosed when switching bays or loading/unloading from cars.  Rules is rules.  We play by them or we don't get to play.

     

    Covers are just a good idea to have for a ton of reasons.

  6. The OP's shooter did it exactly right. Minimized the damage to 1 miss. Very quick thinking. This is one of those never ending sources of confusion. Only the correct type targets exist for the gun you are shooting. Other common examples: Hitting a rifle or pistol target with your shotgun. (it's just a miss) Knocking down a shotgun target with your pistols or rifle. (it's just a miss, shoot where it was during the shotgun string.
  7. Here! http://ccsa-az.com/upcoming-events/ And instead of "Winter is Coming" I think we are all hoping "Winter is Going."
  8. Yeah, I see the operational difference. Just similar issue. The double barrel 45acp also fires two rounds with one pull... just out of both barrels at once. Does this slide through by being treated the same way? If multiple projectiles come out multiple barrels at once simultaneously it's... what? A shotgun? (Of course, short barrel shotguns require the tax stamp also)
  9. Binary firing system. Apparently it's been done on ARs for a while. Gawd Awful sent me this video link a month or so ago. The number of lethal "whoops" events possible is more than you can count. "What could POSSIBLY go wrong!?!" :o
  10. We also had an order for Federal primers cancelled by Cabellas at the end of December. No warning was sent that we know of. Very annoying after waiting a couple of months for something they said would be in stock in a couple of weeks.
  11. Those look solid. It's awesome when someone steps up to do the carpentry. Sounds ok on tabletop dimensions. 22" is about as narrow as you'd want on one side of the table but should work just fine. Gotta sheepishly agree with the other comments on the height. Consider 28" minimum and 34" top max.
  12. You do whatever your guns need to keep running their best. In general, I don't take down the guns for cleaning more than once a month. Sometimes less. That's shooting every weekend. It's a balancing act when you shoot them constantly. Too much maintenance will wear things out as surely as not enough. Carry plenty of your favorite spray cleaner/lubricant to hose out dirty areas before it dries out and cakes on. You won't need to tear down the guns as often.
  13. Getting security certificate errors on multiple machines when loading the SASS wire. Time to check the settings.
  14. Was down on our action range at our local gun club getting certified to use the range. Ended up doing it through the cowboy action program since I'd seen it on TV and all the other programs for cert were full for months. Did the day, shot a couple of sass stages and went through the other classroom stuff not related to sass. Near the end of the day I wasn't really hooked yet. Loden B Kwik and Sgt. Poker Face wanted me to shoot one more stage. Loden said "Put on my gear, use my guns and shoot one more. Come on, just do it." Been hooked since.
  15. Big +1 to the real 3M blue masking tape. Super fast labels that stay on until you remove them and come off with no mess. The generic blue tape like from Harbor Freight is ok for some things but falls right off plastic boxes. One roll of the 3M will last you years for box labels. It's like a post-it note that won't fall off no matter what.
  16. Ok, what is the algorithm going to be? Take the number of rank points from the mid point in the shooter list, take the number of misses available in the stage, divide by 2 to get the 10second value then apply that number of points? Problem is, that's going to be a TINY number in a match with only 50 shotoers and a GIGANTIC number in a match with 800 shooters. half of 50 shooters is 25, 24 misses per stage divided by 2 so 25/12= 2 RP for a MSV. Half of 800 shooters is 400, 24 misses per stage divided by 2 so 400/12= 33 RP for a MSV. Hmmm.... I don't know. Might work. Deserves thought.
