This is the letter I sent to SASS HQ asking for an exception for Ruger 327 7 shooters.
I have never shot one, but I know of some folks who would benefit from a 32 caliber pistol. Until Ruger makes a 6 shooter for CAS in 327, I think the 7 shooter should be allowed.
Discuss. If I am wrong I am wrong. But I think allowances can and should be made.
I am writing to submit an exception to allow the 7 shot Ruger 327 revolver to be allowed for SASS matches. The current handbook does not allow for anything but a 6 shooter (with one exception I believe) for sanctioned matches.
However, I think an exception for the New Model Single-Six / Single-Seven. Many smaller shooters, youths, women and many older shooters would benefit from a 32 caliber pistol. Also this would be advantageous for people who want to use a 32 caliber rifle such as a Henry.
Ruger products are well known to SASS members. The 7 shot Ruger can be loaded with 5 rounds and used for CAS matches.
We must look to the future and adapt current products in order to help recruit the next generation of shooters.
