  1. My wife and I simply need to get the heck out of the house. We want to hook up the travel trailer and head south from Massachusetts. Would like to spend some time in SC. I see a number of clubs hosting shoots. Would we be welcome or are there limits on attendees during the pandemic? Are the dates and times listed in the SASS website accurate?


    Are there and big matches scheduled in the area for March? NC, SC, GA?


    Any advise on camping also would be appreciated. We will be hauling our 20' travel trailer.   We dont mind "Driveway Camping".....if available.


    Thanks in advance!

  2. In the ATF regs it says something about a pre 1898 firearm NOT being an antique if the ammo for it is readily available........


    "For the purposes of the National Firearms Act, the term “Antique Firearms” means any firearm not intended or redesigned for using rim fire or conventional center fire ignition with fixed ammunition and manufactured in or before 1898 (including any matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap or similar type of ignition system or replica thereof, whether actually manufactured before or after the year 1898) and also any firearm using fixed ammunition manufactured in or before 1898, for which ammunition is no longer manufactured in the United States and is not readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade."

  3. I recently bought a used Browning BSS. It was gunsmithed for SASS. Nice gun, but way off face, one hammer spring is cracked and one firing pin is defective.


    Any recommendation where I can get hammer springs and firing pins and a shotgun gunsmith that might be able to repair the "off Face" issue?



  4. Now my grand daughter want to start shooting SASS! Took her to one match and the "very nice people" got her into shooting and she's hooked


    I have a rifle and shotgun for her and one revolver.... but I need a second Ruger NM Vaquero, 4 5/8 barrel, case colored frame, 38/357


    Anyone got one they want to part with?



  5. First, NEVER ask the state police for advice on anything to do with firearms. I can't tell you how many times my state police told shooters coming to my Egg Shoots the wrong thing. I tested them a few times myself and got totally different answers depending on who answered the phone. A lawyer well versed in these things is your best resource.


    You can transport firearms anywhere in the country as long as they are out of your control and secured in some type of container or locked compartment. UPS and FEDX drivers that pick up a load of Smith and Wessons in Massachusetts MUST go through NY state to get just about anywhere in the country. I'm sure all those guns are not registered to the driver or he has a licence to carry/possess in every state he traverses.


    But I've still never received absolute resolve about the over ten cartridge in a lever gun in NY question answered.

  6. I'm so sad that they are making us run down these rabbit holes simply because of the look of a gun......Here in the horrible state of Massachusetts, the sale of ALL AR type Modern Sporting Rifles have been totally banned.......But you can legally buy a Ruger Mini 14, M1a, Remington 7400/740, Browning BAR etc..........


    I'm glad I'm approaching being an old bastard and don't worry too much about this stuff any longer....
