  1. Actually believe it or not we’ve shot several LAMM matches in with BAMM limited to rifle cartridges only and shot LAMM as it’s own class. We have also shot this as a Doughboy type match and called it rebelde Gringo ( excuse the spelling) and LAMM was what it was called from the start. LAMM welcomes the 95 Winchester,86,94, etc. savage 99 but no 44wcf or 38 wcf. Or pistol calibers. We opened this category at club level so that shooters could get their 30-30 out and shoot it in a fun competition that was something different than a long range side match. We have a lot of fun shooting different old guns in competition and at Comanche valley vigilantes on the fourth Saturday when we shoot wild bunch we always have BAMM, Lamm and here lately GAMM. You don’t have to shoot WB, cowboy is at the other end of the range and all cowboy shooters are invited to the BAMM ‘s. We have a great club president and officers that stand behind wild Bunch and BAMM and are always receptive to new ideas. Dusty Boddams
  2. GS, so cowboy match that morning then I guess lunch so right after lunch is BAMM and GAMM? So around 12:00 12:30 starts the big show?
  3. Grouchy Spike, so tell us are you shooting one stage of this or a couple? Will you have a load facilitator for those newbies or a demonstration of how to load? What about your targets ? Are you shooting this at the same location as where the state BAMM was held? If so that’s a perfect location. I predict a big success! Dusty Boddams
  4. H.k. Did your friend reduce the weight of the inertia block or springs? Or is he running around 1700-1800 fps? I think the 32wsl was the idea for 30 carbine,can’t remember where I read that now. I’ve got a 35wsl but never played with it. When zoot shoot first came on the horizon I bought 3 ten round factory mags for my 351 wsl and a pair of nickel colt 1917’s. at this same time wild bunch came on the scene and I never shot a zoot shoot. Around here zoot shoots just didn’t get any traction. Wild Bunch has taken off nicely in Texas and Oklahoma along with other adjoining states.
  5. Model 8/81 Remington’s are powerful rifles they are about like a 30-30, 25-35 and the 35 rem was considered a bear gun. the 351 Winchester won’t operate unless ran nearly at factory specs. At least that’s the way mine is. The 351 could be thought of as an obsolete 357 maximum and in fact cases for the 351 can be built from 357 maximum. Better carbines for close in zoot shoot work would be the soumi in 9mm or the Thompson or of course our pistol cal lever actions.
  6. JB, give BAMM a little time. Bring ammo,good targets and let anyone try it that has a remote interest. Be sure and explain how easy it is to load for these rifles and if they don’t reload offer up HooDoo Brown who loads custom ammo for BAMM and GAMM. Lots of folks are interested when they get that rifle in hand. GAMM is just a club level match and it’s been really well recieved so far and works real well with BAMM. Several folks around here have had garands for years but didn’t have any competitive arenas to shoot them in except for cmp and they desired something else so we are all having a large time! Matter of fact at our next WB fourth weekend Saturday we will have WB with a Doughboy class and after lunch a BAMM and GAMM . If you’re ever this way drop in and shoot with us. Dusty Boddams
  7. S.D., as HJ says they are posted on the WB wire. Y’all about to get BAMM up and running at your club?
  8. It’s with a sad and heavy heart that I report the passing of Griff’s Girl, Dian Griffen. She represents the spirit of sass in the early days and was instrumental in the organizing of the first SASS affiliated club in Texas the Lonestar Frontier Shooting Club. well known in California at sass events then her ,Griff and 4 aces moved to Texas and brought the great sport of sass to Texas with them. She will be missed.
  9. LEP, dark blue? If so it probably needs more air in the tiresthat or the chrome muffler bearing needs tweeking
  10. I've actually taken a primed case put it in a vice used a pair of pliers to hold a round nose bullet and beat the bullet with a hammer and it did Not go off. I've done it several times same result. Try it for yourself. Also thousands of rounds over many years out of my 66 and 73's but I say this if your not comfortable with it then don't do it. Dusty Boddams
  11. Really no reason to get velocity obsessed. 1200 -1300 fps out of that rifle will drop anything in the great state of Texas! I reduce my 44 mag. To that and have had really great luck but then again last few years I've been killing deer and hogs with my 45acp 1911 and they appear to be just as dead. Happy hunting! Dusty Boddams
  12. W3G! WTG didn't look right when I wrote it! On thinking about it I bet I know some folks who could be game........ I will keep you posted. Dusty
  13. Allie Moe, WTG looks to me to be lots of fun. I'm not aware of it being shot in north Texas area but if ever happens around here I would sign up for it. I do shoot a fair amount of combat style matches featuring a lot of movement around here and just to keep it interesting I use a Suomi 9mm carbine or a 27 Thompson carbine . pistols are hi powers or 1911's. At the carbine matches I've ran my m1 carbines against the black guns........Of course we still shoot a lot of wild bunch and are having a large time with it also. As far as worry about changing rules for different types of matches I don't think that's really an issue unless it's how you earn your moneyI mean we are all doing this for fun and entertainment aren't we?
