  1. That looked cool! https://www.full30.com/watch/MDIzNjQz/the-guns-of-1873---winchester-and-saa---on-the-clock
  2. I found these Kent low recoil 2 1/2" shells a few months ago and they worked great! They shucked out of my honed '78 Cimarron. Another bonus is, being 2.5", they let you hold an extra shell in a five round tube magazine, so good for '97's in Wild Bunch. They are less expensive as well. https://kentcartridge.com/us/shotshell/elite-low-recoil-training
  3. Our club allows something similar, I call it Prohibition Category. Basically anything that is pre 1939 and can meet SASS ammo requirements. Semiauto, pump, DA revolvers, etc...
  4. In the reign of King Brimstone I, I would like to see 'engage targets as they are presented' style stages. W3G probably is the closest discipline I could name. Yes, I know they are more difficult to set up, but a stage like this, every so often, would be great:
  5. Movement would be great, every other gunsport I play allows it.
  6. Pictures from the match: https://www.gulfcoastgunforum.com/showthread.php?53956-This-past-weekend-was-the-Retro-Wave-Shooting-Match-in-Tallahassee-FL-amp-it-was-GOOD
  7. https://www.militarytimes.com/off-duty/gearscout/irons/2019/02/20/youre-going-to-want-to-check-out-this-new-80s-themed-firearms-match/ Any Tallahassee area shooters going? Looks pretty interesting.
  8. There is a 3rd and unique manufacturer of conversion cylinders: https://www.facebook.com/cartridgeconversion/ He has worked on several of my conversion revolvers although I do not know much about his Thuer cylinders.
  9. No, Uberti's cartridge guns and percussion guns will not interchange parts. All of their "open top" cartridge revolvers use the a slightly larger frame than the smaller percussion frames.
  10. I shoot about 2/3 of the time at CAS and 1/3 of the time at IDPA style matches. I want to try some 2-gun style matches next.
  11. I took my 1878 Cimarron/Colt shotgun on a quail hunt. I actually took it as my backup. Well the primary autoloader decided it wanted to be a single shot, so I broke out the old hammered double. Some of my friends laughed and asked if that was a muzzle loader, but I shot it better than the other gun. I even tried a few blackpowder shells near the end of the day, I don't think I hit any birds with them, couldn't see anything after the first shot!
  12. I was watching InrangeTV discussing a new type of polymer/copper bullet and half way through the video they mention using these in CAS matches. start at about 4:00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yELW25D8zdE
  13. The Franklin Arms Binary trigger and the Fostech Echo triggers for AR15's, work by firing on the pull and then firing on the release. They are legal non ATF products. Some over and under shotguns use this tech also. This thing appears to fire two on the pull. I don't know how this thing is legal.
  14. No, it was chambered in 44 Henry. Unlike today's replicas, the old '66 had a shorter action than the '73 and could not handle the longer 44-40.
  15. Just a suggestion, if you make these can you offer a gray color so they look a little more historically correct? I use red for my 40S&w and black for my 9mm, but colorful old west ammo is odd looking .
