  1. No offense taken! i would send my PM offer as I am interested in your item at $xx. If you don’t get any other offers let me know. Seller can leave it listed, reduce price to something between what I am offering and original asking price, make a counteroffer, or sell it. In my mind doing it via PM gives others the chance to buy it at asking price anytime prior to us making a deal.
  2. In my mind, if a poster says “first I’ll take it, gets it” then a buyer asking a question assumes the risk that someone else may buy it no questions asked. ive seen items that I was interested in, but not at the quoted price. I typically send a OM with my offer. If somebody says I’ll take it at posted price I respect sellers right to sell it to him.
  3. While I agree 100% that anybody can buy, I have seen items that were priced below market(or free), seller even says hopes a new sass shooter can use it. Then see it snapped up by a known re-seller for a profit. That didn’t seem quite right.

    Old Colt pistol

    An elderly man in my church has this. I think it’s a 1862 pocket navy. London address model. I’m pretty sure it’s an original Colt, 4 digit serial # all match. what do y’all think?
  6. You dont have to own property to be a resident. And for goodness sakes, this is SASS’s game, they made the rule. It’s clearly stated. Why the argument?
  7. About 1/2 the ranges I shoot at are timed for tie breakers. My Uberti does not cock. It is a tad slower when time matters. Ones that cock slightly increase your chance for an AD. Especially if you have a light trigger. If I found a deal on a Rifle I liked cocking or not cocking would not be a deal breaker.
  8. The Smith & Wesson pocket pistols are arguably the best built. I have several. I prefer the hammer model over the lemon squeezer, but that’s just me. I also have Iver Johnson, H&R, Merwin Hulbert, A Colt Lightening, and a couple of others. They are fun to shoot, not overly expensive so fun to collect. I primarily only shoot BP or BP sub APP in mine.
  9. I’ve not heard of a “baby Schoefield”. Baby Russians are spur trigger single action im guessing you are looking at a S&W double action. There were several models, in .32 and .38SW. Top break like a schoefield
  10. Might have been better to say Bullseye was original powder for 45ACP Worked then, works now. Pay attention, don’t double charge!
  11. Banquets are fun. Most have shooter prizes and/or raffles. Tx State last week had 2 73s, a bond Derringer, a Dillon 750, a rugged gear cart, and several other prizes. Go and enjoy yourself. Sit with your posse. You will make friends. Side matches are fun. You may not be able to mow down a rifle run in 2 seconds, but many matches have other side matches that are not just about speed. I’ve seen them where you look at the scenario, then name your time. Closest to their named time wins. go and meet people. Check out the pocket pistols & derringers Some will likely tell you here, try mine! while idea is to have fun, make new friends.
  12. I’ll check it out!
  13. Wow, that one looks to be a Beaut! I k ow they are rare. I’ve never seen one live in person. I haunt the gun shows. That’s where I found my lightening. It’s mechanically sound, finish ok, grips worn. ive probably put 25 rounds thru it. I’ve seen a few Thunderers, but none I wanted to buy. Too rough, I want a shooter, even tho I won’t shoot it much. so..... I gotta ask....your Rainmaker for sale?
  14. you are correct, TO primary responsibility is not to watch targets or count, but should be aware of where bullets are hitting. How do you coach shooter if needed if he asks which target? How do you point out an edge hit, since the book says TO MAY be in be in the Best place to see an edge hit? TO duties when the beep sounds 1) watch gun 2) count shots 3) coach shooter as needed 4) anticipate shooter 5) be aware of where shooter is on target sequence. (by watching muzzle movement and/or targets peripherally. 6) about 14 other things! there is more to being a good TO than just saying STANDBY and pushing the button. phantom, I Know you are a good TO.
  15. I take into consideration which way shooter will be moving so as not to impede him. On the really fast rifle shooters I don't even try to watch the targets, I watch the gun for jacked out rounds. newer, slower shooters who are more likely to get confused on target sequence I try to watch targets more. TOing is an art, not a science!
  16. This is my setup. Full gram pistols on top shelf. Pocket pistols/derringers on wire hangers.
  17. Those are tough! No parts, Unless you buy a “parts Gun” or find a guy that can machine a part. The model 77s were very delicate. They were called “the gunsmiths best friend”! i have one, and like to shoot it every once in a while, but I’m very careful with it. I’d like to find a .41 Thunderer and a .32 Rainmaker to go with it.
  18. As we got to the end of the match I would not even look at Totes. He was on fire! I think it was our next to last stage, a progressive sweep, which I know is Totes favorite and he can really mow it down with the rifle. I was standing next to Ginger Vitis (Totes wife) we were both holding our breath that he did not jack one out. When he put the rifle down we both breathed a huge sigh of relief! I had a hunch then that ole Totes was going to be tough to beat. WAY TO GO TOTES MAGOATS, TEXAS STSTE 49er CHAMPION!
  19. I had a brasser interfere with a shooter once. Clearly in his way. Shooter got by but did lose time. I offered a re-shoot, he declined.
  20. That’s what has me wondering. Brass picker is not a TO, spotter or scorekeeper. If he said something that impeded shooter no call. But if he physically impeded shooter then I think that’s grounds for reshoot. But reshoots carry over safety penalties??
  21. That would be a tough penalty to enforce. Shooter was impeded by outside factor (did not trip over his own feet) I’d be inclined to give the reshoot with no penalty. PWB, what say you?
  22. I understand that. I just think it should be an option! I just hate to penalize shooter for something that was not his fault. If I had an otherwise clean stage I it would take a pretty serious impediment for me to take a reshoot.
  23. Let him finish and offer reshoot. remind brassers to not be so overzealous in their duties! If shooter fell or was really impeded it’s easy to take the reshoot. its a risk to take a reshoot for a minor delay. I’ve seen a guy have a decent,clean stage. Maybe lost 2 seconds due to an impediment. Takes the reshoot, Miss and a p! in some respects I think in that situation the shooter should be allows you take to better of the 2 times.
