SASS Wire Vet

SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. I'm down to 10 bottles. It helped that my wife severely injured herself and wasn't able to shoot at all this summer, as the TB is for her loads. Now to try and get her 100% healed.
  2. I seem to remember the Weather Channel website used to have a function that allowed a user to lay out a trip, to include dates/times of travel and start/ending locations and see the weather forecast. I can't seem to locate that now. Anybody using a similar website/app for this purpose?
  3. On the way home from work last week.
  4. Even then, depending on the prop/table, it may be a disadvantage. I've seen more than one revolver get dropped to the ground or spun around on the table/prop because it's not something the shooter is used to doing.
  5. The way you worded your response is what has me confused, as I am reading two different things: "I believe you can put it on the table instead of re-holstering if it is the LAST GUN. " "I also believe that you can put one revolver on the table, shoot the other one, and then holster them both before moving on to the next gun" Regardless of where the revolvers are shot during the course of fire, the shooter can choose to place the empty revolver on a table/prop, but, they must both be holstered prior to moving to the next position/moving to the next firearm type unless a gun malfunction is declared. In the case of a split pistol string, if a shooter places the first revolver on the table/prop and then shoots another type of firearm, then a penalty is assessed.
  6. Not quite. SHB Page 14 FIREARM CONVENTIONS Safety & Handling Conventions – Revolvers Revolvers are returned to leather (re-holstered in a safe condition) at the conclusion of the shooting string, unless the stage description specifically directs otherwise (e.g., “move to the next position and set gun on table or prop”). A shooting string is defined as shots from one type of firearm prior to the next type of firearm engaged.
  7. Flight 93 crash sight - Somerset County, PA
  8. I prefer containers that have a screen or mesh-type bottom to allow water, dirt and other debris to fall out.
  9. I don't find the price out of line with most other quality timers. My concern (if you will) is how long does it take to get it once ordered. Second concern, how will the company support warranty and/or repairs?
  10. How long did it take to get it after you ordered? Every time I've looked, it's shown to be on backorder.
  11. I'm currently shooting 5.8 gr TiteGroup over a 180 gr RNFP.
  12. It's a great rifle for the house/hunting, as long as you're not in a rush to run it. I won't call it rough, but it ain't "smooth" and the lever is heavy as you know what. Mine was gifted to me by my step-dad a couple years ago. Too much recoil for him. It's a safe queen for me even though the finish is really worn. Serial number 3351xxxM. Sorry for the bad pics, it's actually raining here.
  13. I used to load cotton balls/batting with a minimum load of shot over a standard load of powder for my nephews when first teaching them. Gradually increase the shot payload and decrease the filler based on your daughters ability.
  14. What do you intend to use the spotting scope for? Until this is answered, everyone making a recommendation is giving you an idea based on what they use a spotting scope for. If that's not the way you'll use it, you may be disappointed no matter how quality the glass is.
  15. Somewhere between the loading bench and the staging table for the shotgun, the SxS shotgun closes. What's the call when the shooter sets the shotgun down on the table, in the closed position? If noticed while in transit should the shooter stop, or be told to stop immediately, and be provided assistance? I know this has been discussed before but I can't find it.
