  1. When my kids decided they were going to shoot I bought a 5 gal pail full of .22s. they switched to 38 pistols after one match so I have a crap ton of 22 ammo , so I practice with it. when I actually have time to practice . The guns aren't the same but the mindset is.

      I'm getting older and my joints like it better when I do large volume in a short time. It's a lot easier on the body. now that my kids have decided they want more buckles from above state or regionals, I've had to break out the back yard range and dust off the cobwebs,  it's not unusual for me to shoot 1 to 2000 rounds in an afternoon practice session with them.

      There are a lot of kernels of knowledge posted above.  There is also some not great advice. 

      Proper dry fire is very good, BUT, improper dry fire will cause major issues if not corrected. its really easy to get sloppy if you don't get live feedback.   Transitions, shotgun reloading, and your mental game is what wins a match.

      There is nothing better than live fire with the guns and rounds that you will be using,but any gun can be used.  I've used my three gun gear before practicing transitions and stage layouts, pacing.  If you have the guns, then by all means use them. Even if you don't and you plan long term usage. 22s are still cheaper.  If you only want to practice 50 rnds here and there, just use the money on ammo.

    I love my .44s, been my main pair for over a dozen years without a hiccup. I'm a little confused as to why an FFL holder is asking where to source a gun?


    It's pretty simple. I can order him new ones no problem.  But as most know used are generally cheaper than new believe it or not new guns don't have the markup most think they do. Plus used sass guns generally have all the bugs worked out and are smoother than factory.

    Desired barrel length?

    5 1/2". But it isn't critical. He's not going for speed, he's more into the clothes and historical aspect. His rifle is a 30" and he's going to shoot an original hammered Remington shotgun

    Insurance guy, huh? So he can send me the money, and then I'll decide whether or not it's enough, and if I'm going to actually send him any guns based on what someone who knows nothing about guns says. Then I'll send him another bill at the end of the year, because I might have sold them to someone else for more, even though I didn't. If he decides not to buy my guns, I'll fine him for non compliance at the end of the year That's how it works, right? 


    Kidding aside, I do actually have a pair, I'll send you a pm. 



    Generally I have the same opinion of insurance companys.  However getting insurance to cover a small gun shop is nearly impossible.  He went way out of his way to find us a policy that we could actually afford.

  5. Finally talked our insurance agent into shooting sass this year. He had one condition, that is he wants to shoot 44-40 Remington clones.   So I need to source a pair for him. He's  early 30's with a young family so used is highly important.   

       Full disclosure I'm the ffl he's going to be transferring them to, but I'm not making anything in the deal. He's a good friend I'm trying to help.

    Great! Slick one up, document it (videos work well) and give us a full review. Would love to see the content. 

    That's actually in the works.  I just need to get someone who can be in front of a camera without breaking the lens to do the talking part. .

    Actually, I shot, relaxed and had fun.   BUT this year, I ain't gonna think of any buckles or awards.  




    I got of the buckle, award chase two years ago.  I don't really regret it.   It's fun to scare the good shooters a time or two but going for sub 10 second stages just burned me out.   Now I just enjoy the time with family and friends.

  8. I played with the prototype that they had at the big rock trades show.  Injection molded Hammer that I have serious concerns about holding up. Also the grips are a definite no go. But that's an easy swap.   They haven't done any serious testing as of January on longevity.   We have a couple coming that we are going to do a first shot, and 5000 rd review on. 


     They also have what looked like a steoger clone coach gun coming out as well. It's lighter and needs some love from springs and action work but might be a good entry level shotgun

  9. I've recieved star shaped Steel awards. A small tin bucket with a couple bullet holes in it. One of my cooler ones was a wolf statue carved out of stone. About the size of a softball carved with a dremel tool then polished. Another i really liked was a bowie knive with the match name etched into the blade
