  1. Wild West Merc is an incredible supporter of SASS and a long time sponsor of End of Trail, the Wild Bunch Match and Costume Contest Sponsor, to be exact. Any time you're in there be sure to thank Melissa, the manager, for their support.
  2. The guy on this ShotgunWorld post makes 3D printed ones. The ones that I ordered were a harder plastic than the MEC rubber, but they worked well to replace a worn out one without having to buy a new bar.
  3. Most times I have to add a little extra graphite to reclaimed shot, sometimes a little in new shot too. Just don't overdo it or it will stain your clear bottle so that you won't be able to see through it. Best to mix it in an expendable container. Here's more than you could use in a lifetime for $14 Amazon
  4. Texas Maverick, all of the Clay Target Center sites are pull throughs designed for large RV's. El Chapo, typically Ben Avery fills up for the two weeks around EOT. Your best bet is to secure a site early, like within the next couple of days. I don't know what their cancellation policy is, but it's better than not having a spot whenever you decide. Anybody can feel free to email me with your questions about the schedule or anything else: leo_96150@yahoo.com
  5. Monday, July 8, 2024 at 8 a.m. MST time. For campers participating in competitive matches, events or registered shoots Monday, Aug. 12, 2024 at 8 a.m. MST time. For campers using the Ben Avery Shooting Facility for all other shooting sports activities Below that is a link to "Request a campsite" where you type in your information regarding your request. Then someone from Ben Avery will get in touch with you. It works that way for both the Rifle/Pistol and Clay Target Center facilities.
  6. Spectator hours at End of Trail are 8:00am to 5:00pm Wednesday through Saturday. There is no charge to enter, but the local Rotary Club collects $10.00 per car for parking and shuttle service to and from the event. SASS members that are not shooting the event can buy a Conventioneer badge for $65.00 that allows additional access to the evening events, shoot-off, and awards ceremony. The evenings include a complimentary dinner, swap meet, bingo night, and a live western band. Conventioneers can also shoot the Wednesday speed and long range side matches for free (warm-up matches, cowboy clays, and Plainsman are an additional fee). We hope to see you and your family there. You must be a current SASS member to sign up as a conventioneer. More info, as it becomes available, can be found at: https://endoftrail.org/
  7. Howdy EOT Shooters! Monday, July 8th at 8:00 Mountain Standard Time, Ben Avery opens 2025 campground and RV park reservations for competitors. End of Trail is 2/24 through 3/2 in 2025. Mor information can be found here: https://www.azgfd.com/shooting-sports/ben-avery-shooting-facility/basf-amenities/camping/ctc-camping/. With any luck it will be below 100 by February, hope to see you here!
  8. Happy Birthday Jon, from all of the Rough Riders!
  9. Sent you a PM with local contact information.
  10. I have one printed by the UPS Store every year for End of Trail. I download it and send it to the closest store online. In color and with covers it's about $25.00, probably about 1/2 that in B/W and no cover.
  11. +1, white or off white, looser fitting the better.
  12. The Colts and Remingtons feel totally different, you would be wise to try a couple of each if you can find somebody else shooting them. Also, different barrel lengths feel and balance differently. The Colts have an advantage there because you can swap barrels. I bought a pair of the "Man With No Name" guns in .38 just for fun. They felt and handled so great that I haven't shot my Vaqueros since.
  13. I just crossed from AZ to CA Monday in my RV. They asked about produce, plants, and firewood. I told them I had produce from the grocery store and they said "Have a nice day".
  14. Check back issues of the Cowboy Chronicle https://www.sassnet.com/resources/cowboy-chronicle for bullet merchants who support our game. Some even offer discounts to SASS members. Bullets By Scarlett, Bang and Clang, Desperado Bullets, Chey Cast, and Bear Creek Supply are a few that I have seen sponsor and support local and championship matches, I'm sure others can add to the list. Remember, we should support those who support our matches year-round.
  15. Bullets by Scarlett https://bulletsbyscarlett.com/ has .38 spl in smokeless and black powder. Choice Ammunition https://choiceammunition.com/cowboy-action/ has .38 spl and .44 spl in smokeless. Both are HUGE supporters of cowboy shooting and the shooting sports in general. You won't go wrong with either of them.
