  1. Hmmm maybe it was a typo! Good for you for finding it! Hugs! Scarlett
  2. I recently got my FFL. When “my ATF agent” interviewed me and went over rules/statutes, etc I asked about posting my FFL in my shop. He instructed me NOT to post it where it would be visible to visitors because scammers will photograph it and then photoshop it. Zelle is a person to person transaction that can’t be undone. It probably also doesn’t allow firearm sales. Neither does PayPal or Square…so beware… even if your money goes through with one of those apps, if there is an issue, the apps will NOT back you up because it violated their user agreement. Scammers have gotten VERY good - cloning web stores with legitimate FFL etc. I recommend doing business with known entities or face to face. Hugs! Scarlett
  3. Ours are sized after coating…they’re coated 3 times.
  4. It was an outstanding match! My best finish ever shooting the smoky stuff gunfighter style and a wonderful group of people! The stages were absolutely amazing!!Thanks, Fast Eddie and crew for an amazing match. Love and hugs! Scarlett
  5. The 125gr bullets I sell (and shoot) have no lube grooves OR crimp grooves. No extraordinary crimping is required to keep from collapsing in to the case in a rifle… the benefits are: you can adjust the OAL for your desired length specific to your rifle. Also, as for no lube groove - why have a lube groove for no lube? As for us, when replacing molds during Covid, the no grooves makes sense. They cast a better bullet, coat more evenly, are easier to inspect for quality… not a sales post but I’ve sold thousands of this bullet profile over the last year and a half and have heard of NO issues…
  6. I know of 3. One restarted after drawing pistol (and cocked it) realizing rifle was first. Shooter and TO failed to check pistol. When shooter got to pistol, touched trigger and it fired through holster and into thigh. Dr left it there. Two, drew and cocked pistol with strong hand while putting rifle down on table and shot through hand. Third one I don’t know details other than shot self in hand. I do not know of any fatalities, thanks goodness. I do think we can be careless…not having loading table officer, “I’ve been shooting since you were born little lady, I can check my own guns” attitude is what gets folks hurt… none of us is immune from making a mistake that could result in serious injury or worse. Hugs! Scarlett
  7. FYI, Blackhorn is not “legal” for use in the Frontier Cartridge categories. However, APP is in stock! Hugs! Scarlett
  8. You know, that’s true. Thankfully, there’s no 12 Step Program for it! Big hugs and look forward to seeing you and your family in Georgia!!
  9. Fort White Cowboy Cavalry are OUTSTANDING!! They put on one heck of a match. I wasn’t at the Ladies Match however, I attend the Dark Days black powder championships every January. FWCC club is friendly! Has great bays/berms. Many are covered and there are fans for summertime. If you have the chance to go…GO! If you want to be a part of the Dark Side…come in January! I hope to be able to attend the Ladies match in 2023. I had a previous commitment this year. Big hugs and May the Smoke Be with You! Scarlett
  10. That’s simple etiquette. I’m a chatterer (I know y’all ain’t surprised)… if someone asked me a question, I’d answer it. THEN, folks on a different flight or posse would see me and ask me to save some bullets or powder back for them… that’s an occupational hazard for me - and I politely say, go see Tommy… when the shooter before me gets called up, I CLOSE my eyes and my mind to EVERYTHING but the stage and hum so I don’t hear chatter and run through the stage in my mind. MOST of the time the outcome is something I can be reasonably proud of… others? Well, it was FUN! Hugs! Scarlett
  11. Yeah, yeah, yeah…it’s a game and you have nothing to prove to ANYONE except @Red Knee with the fastest ‘97 runs on Side Match Day! For me, it’s a little of both …AND a business. Bottom line: if it weren’t FUN, I wouldn’t work so hard… I love this game/Sport and all the folks who play it! Hugs!
  12. I’m coming!! I want to be there when you shoot your first state match!! Can’t wait to see you @Ruby Ruthless SASS#105922! Hugs! Scarlett
  13. Black MZ was 2.5F from APP for Alliant. Alliant had storage issues or something and unloaded it to Sportsman’s Warehouse for CHEAP. Now, Shooters World (full disclosure, I’m rep for both SW and APP) offers Multi-Black - the same formula as Black MZ also made by APP. I say all this to clarify that there was not some huge price increase or gouging situation. It’s because the Black MZ was sold so low and we got spoiled…now we have to pay “real” money for it. @Cholla let us know what you find out in your testing! I’m gonna start shooting my 45-70 again and want to use APP! It’s gonna be fun. I’ve missed shooting long range! Big hugs! Scarlett
  14. My suppliers show our wholesale cost between $58-68. They don’t have any for me, of course, but if I needed primers? I’d buy whatever I needed for $90 or less. Hugs! Scarlett
  15. Replied to your email just a bit ago. I’m not gonna be at OH but can probably give to a cowboy in Georgia who is going…
  16. Welcome & Congratulations! Great big JEDI hugs! Scarlett JEDI #235
  17. It trickles in… I have NO IDEA about exporting. I’ll ask ShootersWorld. Is there a particular shop in AU? miss y’all! hugs! Scarlett
  18. I was at the match. I’ve been shooting since Dec 2012. I’m not sure I’ve EVER had as much fun AT A MATCH as I did this one. There were folks from 11-12 states. There were some extremely fun and unique side matches. It was NOT a bank breaker. It also SOLD OUT. Not in minutes like BT. The stages were sent to every shooter a month in advance! Some folks even set up the scenarios to practice the sweeps! I understand the question however, I find it tiresome that matches are judged yay or nay by the size of the steel. I’d take the match I shot this weekend over a lot of matches I’ve been to over the years because I, and the folks from far off, (on my posse and others) had FUN! I did NOT shoot my best match…I shot the most fun match I believe I’ve ever shot. Fine damn weekend if you ask me. Hugs! Scarlett PS why is the % of clean shooter the metric by which we “rate” matches?
  19. I clean my guns between matches always. I do that when I shoot smokeless too unless I’m crazy busy. I just shot FC at our state match … BP side match on Thursday, main match Fri/Sat. I cleaned my pistols and SG each day - stainless NMV and SKB 100 - and sprayed receiver really well on my 73 ran some patches through it and did a final full cleaning today. My pistols take 15 minutes each with PAM - peroxide, alcohol and Murphy’s Oil soap. The crud just runs off I don’t really even need a brush. SG is super easy, too. 73 takes me the longest and I will pull the bolt out every 24-30 stages to be proactive that it’s not gonna fail. Learned the hard way. It’s so much fun shooting the FC categories that the cleaning really isn’t much of a factor once you get used to it! Hugs! Scarlett
  20. @Sandhills Slim, SASS #22998 and his bride, Miss Jewel are the NICEST couple! I adore them both and they will welcome you with GREAT BIG OPEN ARMS!! Big hugs and welcome back! Scarlett
  21. I have never bought anything on FB - certainly not firearms. I’m very sorry for the new shooter. I know that MOST OF US cowfolk ARE honorable people however, I have a couple Customers who have been scammed/shortchanged/not gotten what they paid for via the SASS Wire Classifieds. Greed is an equal opportunity vice/sin and the lessons here are BUYER BEWARE! Especially now! Only deal with known entities or people that friends/shooting pals KNOW to be decent and honorable. Hugs! Scarlett
  22. If you’re wanting BP subs - APP 2F and 3F are in stock and with a few shipping issues should be at your house within a couple of weeks - 3 at the most. Let me know! Hugs! Scarlett
  23. I bought an XL 650 and a bunch of accessories from a pal a while back and one of the accessories was a Dillon primer tube filler. HATED it! Could not get it to work right and when it did work the 63rd primer would be upside down and my OCD brain had to start all over! so, I traded it for a MEC Jr! BEST trade I’ve ever made! Cowboy got the filler thing to work and I got a MEC! I don’t mind hunt and peck but at gonna look into this gadget! Thanks for sharing it! Hugs! Scarlett
