SASS Wire Vet

SASS Wire Vet (1/1)



  1. I use C.45 Spl. my rifle too. However, if my arthritis is acting up or it's cold out and a stage requires a reload, I often find it easier to use a .45 Colt cartridge for the reload.
  2. I have not had a problem. I use C.45 Spl. in both rifle and pistol. I always keep a few .45 Colts around just in case and it's never been a problem during a match.
  3. I never had symptoms that I could say were directly related to lead (though I wouldn't be surprised if symptoms my docs relate to other causes might not be related). I became aware of lead levels years ago when I was a police firearms instructor, and a range was shut down. Lead testing was mandated, and I was put on the shelf for awhile. Within the last 15 years, I've insisted that it be an annual part of the blood tests taken for my annual physicals.
  4. Not a very good photo, but you get the idea.
  5. I just built a couple of moveable store front stage props. I did not use any plan, just kinda winged it. Built them in three sections out of 1 x2. Each section is about 4 x 8. The middle section is a doorway. Each side has a single window. Remember to make the doorway big enough for a tall cowboy wearing a hat. Same for the windows. Make em wide and high. I adjusted the bottom of the window height to fit the portable tables we use for staging/. I used flag style lift off hinges to hold the panels together. One of our club members had access to heavy cardboard sheets. Another member painted them. They came out pretty good and are portable.
  6. At one point mine was in the 40s. I have it down under 10 now. Yes, I had calls from the State Health Department. I refused to discuss it with them and they eventually went away. I think the primary cause was shooting and instructing indoors. Now when I shoot indoors, I wear a respirator style mask. When I get home from the range, clothing goes directly into the washer. For reloading I've gone to wet tumbling. At the reloading table, I'm using coated bullets. I did note a slight uptick when I started TOing.
  7. Congratulations and welcome.
  8. Glad to hear you have personal experience. I wasn't clear on that in your original post. With all of the fraud going on, I was concerned when I went to their web site. I couldn't find an address listed. Next step was to Google them for reviews, and that was what I found.
  9. The buyer may want to do more research on this company before ordering: https://www.pissedconsumer.com/cdnn-sports/RT-F.html#:~:text=CDNN Sports was first mentioned on PissedConsumer on,company is 1.6 and consumers are mostly dissatisfied.
  10. Our club offers a category for adults shooting .22s. It is separate from the others. We also offer a separate category for those having only one pistol. Neither of these categories are eligible for overall match winner.
  11. I have worked Deer antler and Giraffe bone. I think you are going to find most Deer antler is too small. Probably need to step up to Elk. You may want to check out your local pet shop. They frequently have dog chews in sizes that might be useable for what you want to do. You are probably going to want to stabilize it. You can make a container out of a canning jar and pick up a cheap vacuum pump from Harbor Freight. Minwax wood hardener works fine.
