  1. 1 year old birthday coming up. Powder could be a special present.
  2. yes, HazMat Squared. I bought about 15,000 small primers to supply my nephew and a friend; both new reloaders. Paid $121/K for 5000 first and then got 10,000 for $65 per 1000. Figured I would sell the "extra" on gunbroker. Oops. I offered the last 5000 I had "leftover" for the $121 at a local range. No takers....then. (Plenty of requests now). I had already given them to a friend to sell at a gun show in Morgantown PA for $100/k because I "had enough on hand". Didn't want to be stuck with primers you know. "extra" "leftover" "enough on hand" geez Now with 10-20K on
  3. Seems every group or club I've been involved with has discussed increasing interest to new people. Seems hard to resist. I do it too. I've brought my tenth new person to a CAS match. One of them bought the gear though I don't know if they've been to a match in two years. They shoot actively otherwise. I haven't given up 'recruiting' but I don't try to hard either. Personally I'm hitting four other types of matches each month and try to catch cowboy with the Quinton Mavericks...though that is the same weekend, different day, as a USPSA match nearby. Cowboy is good and Quinton is open to suggest
  4. Gouging...a word from the Social Justice Warrior Handbook.
  5. btw; having End of Trail move East a bit looks to have gotten a good response. The Shelby car collectors club (SAAC) does that each year, rotating East, West and Mid US. I bet some interesting Press might occur with EOT getting around. Maybe that will catch to attention of some new SASS shooters. In my spare time . . . anyway. . . I'd like to arrange a hybrid match that embraced Cowboy Action and Modern Action shooting. Have any of you been involved in that sort of thing? What works? I'll check with the http://www.jacksonholegang.com/ in New Jersey. They've had a couple Cops n Cowboy eve
  6. 6 segment crimp vs 8 segment was biggest difference for me and my Stoeger. I like Rio ammo in three gun because they have loads in all sorts of increments. I think it was their ammo that had a six segments crimp and it flared out more than then AA hulls and they grabbed the double barrel too well.
  7. I have plenty, including hard stuff with XRF scanned detals
  8. Nice piece. I have a Lyman 4500 with a heater. The Star was a nice machine but I used the 4500 more - until I started powdercoating. The Lyman is for sale now.
  9. Looks like I may be in for once of these. Now how do I message you directly . . .

    Feel free to message me. 

    Also, if anyone has a black Bisley grip frame;  let me know. And for that matter,  if Doc doesn't want the other one I guess would take the pair. 


  10. Ah good! Manual vs inertia… these real light ones might challenge a inertia gun and perhaps some knockdowns. Might need to keep something more potent around for those.
  11. For a consistent soft load consider using Alliant e3 instead of Clays. You can use Clays load info for e3. With e3 your loads will not be pressure or temperature sensitive, very consistent. Titegroup might use a touch more. I seem to recall that Federal primers should be avoided. I loaded up, and chrono'd, loads for shooters that had medical issues. I had ⅞oz loads going 950fps using 12.5 -13 gr of e3. That is a Power Facter of 363 vs 525 for a common 1oz 1200fps trap load. I use 1⅛ and 13-14 grains of e3 in a SxS regularly.
  12. I hope you get out there. Bet you'd have fun with those Schofields. If I wasn't so cheap I'd like to try them too.
  13. 45 Colt Marlins may be the best value. No premium for versions in 45 and my two have been completely reliable.
  14. Btw; using CAS guns in 3Gun style scenarios is challenging because your brass is all over the place. Regarding the photo below from Irish Ike… when my daughter was learning how to drive we walked out to my car. I said oops there's a flat tire. She said where I don't see it. I said let's pretend and threw a rolled up pair of coveralls to her. She asked what to do and I said well if you had a flat tire and I wasn't there you'd probably end up looking at the manual in the glove box. She got the tire off and "Now what do I do with it? " "Well, it's still good so let's put it back
  15. Hi all, A couple thoughts on the subject. Basically pivots around making it interesting and exposing people who are already shooters to our Cowboy Action guns n gear. I enjoy Cowboy Action and have brought 9 or 10 new shooters to SASS events. I usually do dry fire practice in front of a large projection a video that I've taken from SASS matches. I have videos of slow, medium and fast shooters. Having to load, lever and reload like we do and then dry firing in sync with the video (watching the same targets as the video-shooter) has made it easy for people to get comforta
  16. Looking for a way to connect....feel free to email me at meeester11 AT gmail. ty, PT
