  2. My son wears a 7 7/8 hat and I am in need of one that is round-oval shaped. Preferably one that is in very good condition that has a large enough crown and brim to reshape. A Resistol or some other brand that is round-oval. Thanks.
  3. Tennessee Williams, I had a chicken foot on my gas tank.....The hoodoo must have worked...no train wrecks but the wheels came off on two stages. Congrats on the 2nd place finish.
  4. You cannot get the older hammers from any of the parts suppliers. I checked with all of the suppliers last week. My suggestion is to order the new type hammer and the trigger from both Taylors and VTI and get a backorder verification and they will call you when they get them in. You are not required to pay for them prior to the parts coming in.
  5. Kid....I called Cimarron about the Thunderstorm hammers... They had none in stock and referred me to VTI. VTI had none.
  6. I just purchased a pair of older CCH El Patrons and need to buy 2 Competition Hammers with the lower, wider spur. I have been told that Uberti no longer makes the El Patron Competition hammers or the Running Iron hammers without the new, retractable firing pin configuration, so will need to find a couple of older ones. Running Irons would be preferable but will gladly take either. My understanding is that the installation of the newer hammers with the retractable firing pin configuration would also require new triggers. I am also told that neither Taylors, Cimarron, nor VTI are able to get the older configuration and that the newer CCH hammers are out of stock and back ordered. Thanks
  7. Found them ...... Thank you Dallas McPewPew. YEEHAAA. WTB a pair of 1851 Navy Conversions to shoot Josey Wales. 38. 5 1/2" barrel preferred. PM me for my email address to send pictures. Thanks. Mac
  8. We’ll just say $5 for shipping and $40 for shirt. Total of $45 to

  11. I am a relatively new member...joined in 2015...and have only been shooting CAS style since 2014. I have also been on the boards of numerous non-profits and have been a small business owner for 35 years. Guys......it costs much more to run a business than the average Joe even remotely understands. Given the expenses involved in the "real world" for any consumer item, the annual dues we pay for our SASS memberships is almost nothing. Due to the huge increase in expenses involved in recent government regulation in my business, we (and all those in my niche) had to dramatically increase our fees effective January 1, 2016...by 35%, and that just about breaks us even after taking into consideration the additional costs to do business. I understand that some folks are economically and financially strapped for many reasons., but given what is provided to us for a minimal fee (almost nothing in the big picture), there is nothing to realistic complain about. My personal experience with SASS has been WONDERFUL. Misty is always watching the WIRE and being helpful. Sure....sometimes things might not happen immediately, but there is always a satisfactory outcome. This is supposed to be FUN, so keep it FUN. If you are not having fun, you are missing the "spirit of the game." I also agree with one of my pards in this thread who did not like the name calling. However, I agree... quit whining. The SASS membership dues are more than reasonable. Posse up and have some FUN. My club in Wartrace, TN has been nothing but fun....could be the most fun hobby I ever had.....terribly frustrating at times....but when all your equipment is running right and you are relaxed, it is great fun. All of the Wartrace Regulators are helpful and friendly and will do anything to make your match fun and rewarding. My profession is in the law (real estate and probate, so I am one of the good guys), so I am by nature very suspicious and guarded, but I have NEVER done business or had any dealings with a single cowboy who was not honest and respectful. Most will even ship things you buy on the WIRE CLASSIFIEDS before every receiving their money. How unworldly is that? Wake up guys!! This organization is the best. Support it. That is all I have to say about that.
