  1. But where else will we learn about bad dog food and bad non-cowboy guns?
  2. Thanks for the kind words, @Hoss. We're very excited to be hosting the SASS State Match for the first time in our history. We will be offering Sharpshooter and of course Cody-Dixon categories for State, but the THSS version of Wild Bunch will not be offered -- only SASS Wild Bunch that Thursday. And yes, @Dragon Hill Dave #59561, the Outhouse with the "barn door" will be there. I managed to screw that up pretty royally while trying to slam fire my 1897 shotgun during the TSRA match last month. Didn't miss but my time was way up. Won't do that again! @Anvil Al #59168 I
  3. It's a really funny movie, especially if you ever worked in any kind of corporate America cubicle environment. If you don't like cursing, I would recommend watching it off Comedy Channel or something like that.
  4. Just like they fished in Support Your Local Sheriff.
  5. The one piece missing for me to become a Jedi Gunfighter is to have a completely clean match. So I'm a perfect candidate for a Stormtrooper.
  6. If all they care about is misses, and you do not have too many stages for the match, what I do for our club is after the match, go and print reports to HTML inside the Practiscore app. It then shows number of misses. P= total penalty seconds so that would include misses, penalties, etc. Here's an example from our last monthly: https://www.thss.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/2020-11-THSS-Sun-Results.pdf
  7. For the 30th anniversary of Trailhead, THSS (Texas Historical Shootist Society) will be hosting the SASS 2021 Texas State Championship. ALL SASS RULES APPLY. The match will be held March 25-28, 2021. Full match details at www.THSS.org/trailhead Click on the icon below to download a fillable PDF application.
  8. When I first started hunting, I used my Dad's Savage 99 in .300 Savage caliber. Loved that lever rifle, and it's the only one I've ever seen that has a counter for how many rounds are remaining in the internal magazine. Shame it's not legal for SASS.
  9. Plans to introduce Ruger lever rifles "in latter half of 2021." https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2020/12/01/ruger-marlin-assets/?fbclid=IwAR2uQ_58Y1-TwuOTaYyshJb5qsi7MeLU2q-dZ65ebdpkXZW90AFyuNuf_bg Here's to a Ruger 1894 on my Christmas list next year.
  10. SASS isn't NFA-friendly. Shotguns have to be 18 inches, and when I asked if it would be Ok if I used a lever rifle that had a threaded barrel, they said no, even if I didn't use a suppressor on it during a match.
  11. As written, the HPA provides for a refund of the stamp tax for suppressors purchased after October 22, 2015. This is so people don't completely stop buying them in anticipation of this passing. https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/367 I really hope this passes. I have an annoying uncle that stops by during hunting season every time there's a shot in the area to see if I got anything. A suppressor won't get rid of the sound completely, but it will help.
  12. 24" barrel seems long for something you want to attach a suppressor to. Plus it only holds ten rounds :/
  13. I was actually looking at the 2.5" mini. Looks closer in size to the American Derringer.
