  1. That's a mighty fine looking cart and this seems like a very worthy cause. I'm in.
  2. I agree. Some Match Directors don't have their finger on the pulse of what the vast majority of SASS shooters are looking for. Some mistakenly think they can slow down the top shooters and give mid pack shooters a better chance with more difficult stages (the opposite is what usually happens). Pistol reloads can be a problem for many shooters. Add in the fact that some of us have to take our pistols to half cock in order to load, and have engrained a habit of doing that with our right hand, then transferring the pistol to our left hand to do a right handed reload and you're setting shooters up for a DQ. I would walk away from a match that included this and not return unless assured it would never be included again.
  3. I agree. Easier to replace, and visually not much of a departure from the 'traditional' look. I would likely not even notice the dovetails if I weren't attracted enough by the octagon barrels to have a closer look.
  4. Looks like fun. My kids have aged out of buckaroo, but I've held onto their .22s on the off chance I get an opportunity to compete in a rimfire match.
  5. These look nice! If I weren't sitting on more revolvers than I need already I would get in line for a pair.
  6. I will send them via Oak Ridge if he is at the Cleveland match in July. We'll miss the June match as Shootin Sharyn and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in Maui that week.
  7. This is an incredible SASS family in a bunch of ways, not least the fact that they can shoot blazingly fast. I'm glad I got the chance to meet them all at TN State!
  8. Whiskey and his crew put on another great match. As @Sixgun Seamus said, this is a bucket list match. Great facilities, great stage writing, great target placement, great door prizes and most of all great people. Posse five was a pleasure to shoot with.
  9. Another Magnificent 7 is in the books. That's bittersweet because it means spring is over and with it all the wonderful matches we are fortunate to have between March and June. This time we went into the final leg at Tennessee State with three people in contention to win the Men's overall. Cottonmouth Cole, Groundhog and Arcadia Outlaw all had a shot at winning it all. Arcadia had an excellent match and pushed us into a rank point tie with 5 rank points for him and Groundhog with 5 rank points. Total time is the tie breaker. Because Tennessee State is a 12 stage match and all the others are 10 stages, I 'evened out' the times by taking Arcadia's total time for TN and dividing it by 12. That gave me his average stage time for the match. I multiplied that by 10 and recorded that as his ten stage total time for TN State.

Tin Can Sailor won the Paige Custom Knives screw knife. Arcadia Outlaw won the Ryder Shotshell resizer from Bullets by Scarlett. Everyone was present to pick up their prizes except @Mister Badly I'll get those bullets to you Mister! If you weren't present to get your match pin I'll either Cowboy Express it to you or mail you one. FYI, I had trouble tracking clean matches. Several states don't report clean shooters, so the only one I know of was @doc roy l. pain. Doc I'll mail you your clean match pin. Anyone else who shot three of these matches clean please contact me and I'll get your clean match pin to you. Thank you to our State Sponsors, Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. Thank you to our Main Match sponsors, SASS, Outlaw Bullets, Paige Custom Knives, Buffalo's Wild West and Bullets by Scarlett. I plan to run this again next year. I'm hoping to add one more main match sponsor and I plan to keep the cost at $20 per shooter. The All Around Cowboy category WILL be back! https://southeastopenmagnificentseven.com/
  10. Just minutes away from wheels up. I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning! Posse 5!!
  11. Same here. Then he started simplifying things.
  12. I imagine TW talking to his psychiatrist as being a lot like Tony Soprano talking to his shrink, just substitute feetless chickens for ducks in the pool.

  15. I agree, up to a point. Dead Eye Dillard (or any number of top shooters) with a pump rifle would certainly beat me with a lever gun, but would he choose to compete against Matt Black with one? I think not. I appreciate your point of view, but let's be real, pump rifles aren't popular in CAS, and there are multiple reasons for that.
  16. Respectfully, I disagree that a pump rifle is a good choice for a shooter who wants to be competitive simply because you can cite a single shooter who does well in his category with one. I could easily counter by mentioning dozens of shooters who do even better shooting a lever gun.
  17. I have. In the last 10 years have you ever seen anyone in the top ten at EOT who was shooting a pump rifle? How about anyone winning the overall at a State or Regional match with a pump rifle?
  18. I do occasionally buy guns for the 'cool' factor even though I know I won't be shooting them much. I'm keeping my eyes open for a reasonable deal on an 1887 shotgun even though I doubt I would shoot it very often. I never saw pump rifles in any westerns, or any other movies that I can recall, so they've never really appealed to me from a cool factor perspective. If I thought shooting one might help from a competitive perspective that would be different, but I doubt that's the case.
