  1. Hey Cap looking forward to see you up and around!
  2. Special prayer for T-Bone! Get well Pard. You'll whip this.
  3. This was the hardest Winter Range, ok most challenging, that I've attended. That begins in 1999 with a couple of missed years (you still owe me an anniversary packet/bag ) I liked it. I would like to see more matches reach this degree of difficulty. My first view of the main match setup was the Posse Marshal walk through. Many stages appeared to have pistol targets at further distances with some "intricate" positioning with regard to the target numbering and shot sequence required by the stage instructions.. Stages 1-4 stood out to me in that respect at that time. Stages 9-12 seemed to be the most forgiving. Appeared to be closer and bigger. Stages 5-8 appeared to be in between on the degree of difficulty meter. After shooting them, I lump 1-8 together in difficulty and 9-12 less. None of the stages were of the point and shoot and clamp down on the trigger variety as with some of the big & close of which we've became complacent. I never measured any of the distances. I did step off one stage before my morning rotation. Front pistol targets were 8-10 steps, back pistol targets were 9-11. Steps not real precise. I estimated rifle targets to be another 3-4 steps. I noted that closest shotgun targets were in line with the front pistol targets. Misses were the result of as follows: hurried shots timed to mental cadence due to muscle memory developed on repeated big & close targets;, breaking shots while pistols moving due to lazy mechanics brought on by in your face targets; lack of trigger control and follow through not required on close targets. Winter Range 2020 was a great match! It was a fun match! It had choice, movement, variability, innovation, good starting positions, and great props. All of the non-shooting activities were A number 1! KEEP IT THIS WAY! Personally, I would welcome more matches like this one. All of any one thing gets repetitive after a while. I fully understand the customer satisfaction concept. There are plenty of "up close & personal" matches across the country for those that just don't won't the challenge in which to participate. Whom are we trying to attract when our philosophy becomes "make it as easy as possible" so that more will be fooled into thinking they are "skilled" at something?
  4. I really want a 44-40 commemorative to be my shooter. I still haven't seen one close enough to purchase.
  5. I'm so thankful for SASS and the Wild Bunch. I've already paid to extend my life membership for a second lifetime. If they would find a founders club place for me I'd pay for that too. Only the short sighted, uninformed, selfish fools can't see how vital SASS has been to the shooting world. The only folks for which I feel some sentiment are those that truly are pinched by economics. But in all reality, at any level of cost, someone would be in financial stress. Where there is a will, you will find a way. The participation, experience, and relationships are priceless. Additionally, before complaining about SASS membership, have you complained about the rise in prices of shotgun shells, reloading components, firearms, gun show tickets, boots, clothing, automobiles, trucks, tires, auto repairs, camping fees, gasoline, food, motel rooms, ice, cookies, candy bars, beer, booze and road tolls? Every one of those items have risen as great a percentage as your SASS membership which is still within the price of a good pair of shoes! I say again. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to every Wild Bunch member living and dead. It's my belief that your efforts have not only been pioneering, but time will show them to be historically significant. And, you fellers are lucky, I say LUCKY to have someone like Misty Moonshine to lead the fight, all the while, standing up to the headwinds of ignorance! She certainly has much more patience than I. To her credit, when she should be telling some of you peckerwoods where to get off, she spends hour upon hour patiently enlightening you as to how good you actually have it. It's time for you cowards behind a keyboard to load up, dress up, and posse up to be part of the solution instead of just bellyachin'.
