  1. Thanks Sedalia Dave, I figured it out based on your tips!  I think I figured it out. 

     

    One last question, so there's an online facet of PS?  I take it that I can go online to manage my matches and shooters can go online to see their scores instead of the club having to email scores?

  2. Quick question: Due to the inability to download ACES on our club's newer tablets, we need to transition to a new SASS program and I think Practiscore is the preferred replacement program. I've downloaded PS on a device to start learning it but having a few issues. I can add stages and shooters and enter times but I'm not seeing how to add SASS categories for shooters. I can see that with work it can be used to score a SASS match but it doesn't seem overly CAS friendly. 

     

    Are we on the right path? How do we set up SASS categories and are there any training videos or options for help setting up our first post ACES match?

  3. Quick update for everybody:  Our range and large clubhouse at the Bayou Bounty Hunters in Amite, LA survived Hurricane Ida and our state match is still a go!  We'd like to cordially invite y'all to our 3 day, Hangin at Coyote Creek / Louisiana State Championship Nov 12th - 14th.  We're forecasting 4-5 Posses, 10+ campers on site and shooters from Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Michigan, Arkansas and North Dakota.

     

    We have very unique buckles for LA resident category winners with big Concho's from Molly's for out of state winners and 2nd & 3rd place winners.  Lunches are included and our Saturday night banquet raffle will offer a Ruger RPR long range rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor, a 1911 WB pistol, a Dillon 750 press, a carved western SASS cow skull, a box of Pres. Trump M&M's from Air Force One and a Solaris, smokeless portable firepit.  All stages are based on great stages from other great matches that many of us missed last year.  We borrowed stages from Winter Range, Land Run, Comin at Cha and Rootin Tootin Shootin in MS. so our shooters can experience what SASS shooters are doing at other great matches, but with our targets. 

     

    We'd love to have you visit us for a match where we've truly spared no expense.  Email Dusty_Sometimes@yahoo.com for more info or visit our BBH website.

  4. This pin secures and holds in the firing pin and the spring.  When installing a Shotgun Boogie short stroke kit, this is one of the final steps since a lighter spring is needed for the SS hammer fall.  You drive it out from bottom to top, replace the spring and lightly tap it back into place, after noting the orientation of the pin as it goes back into place, due to the slope of the pin's top.  Probably the hardest step to installing a SGB SS kit yourself.

  5. We're here in Baton Rouge, between both CAS clubs (The Bayou Bounty Hunters of Louisiana and The Deadwood Marshals) and the eye should pass right over us in 7 hours with effects starting in about 3 hours. It'll be a rough afternoon and night but it should be over by 4am. Got window A/C units up, generators fueled, gas cans topped off and bags packed and ready. Keep us, our 2 clubs and all members in your prayers. See y'all in the morning!

  7. What's the best, fairest method to call hits or misses on a shotgun "spinner" style target, the kind with 3-4 ears or plates that spin the target?  A knockdown is a knockdown, but a spinner is subjective, since you can't poll the Spotters if it was hit during the stage, to tell the Shooter that he needs to re-engage.  I'm asking because I'm thinking of the possibility that 1 BB could have hit it.  Can you say "A hit must spin it" and if so, how much?  As a Shooter, I'd be upset to hear afterwards that Spotters gave me a miss without telling me.

     

    Is it fair to write the stage that the Spinner only needs to be engaged and all shots are considered hits?  It's different than a simple knockdown.  Is this not a good target for big matches?  How have you seen them scored?

  8. One of my heroes, a great man, a fellow Texan, I loved being around him, my heart hurts.  Sincerest thoughts, prayers, love and support to Melissa and family.  He'll be long remembered.

  9. 6 months ago I wasn't a whiskey drinker but this past summer I toured the Jameson factory and Guiness Brewhouse in Dublin, Ireland while on an assignment. At the end of the tour, they give you a complimentary Jameson drink with ginger ale. I'm hooked and most nights before bed I enjoy my Jameson & ginger ale as I wind down.
