  1. I have been posting these on our club FB page for all the new shooters. Keep it up!
  2. Heck fire, just getting a sock on without snagging a toe nail is enough challenge for me-- Seriously, every person I take to a SASS match says that there is no way they can miss, and then they do, over and over. I rarely get a clean match.
  3. I mailed my order in mid-November for a Winchester version. They received it November 30th. They sent me an email giving me a customer number in March. They have sent out orders after mine. (You can track other folk's orders on the CMP forums.) In March they marked the Winchesters sold out. April 10th and still nothing.
  4. Di I need to sign up in advance or do you allow walk ups? I was thinking of going to the Tucson gun show and visiting Tombstone that weekend.
  5. Classic Cowboy requires cocking and shooting one-handed. Age-based categories allow two hands.
  6. Robyn Gold, Here's my advice. I believe NCOWS had posses in Texas. Attend an NCOWS match and see how you like it. They have targets a little farther out and are a little more challenging. (You will notice Raton Rick "liking" a few comments on here. I have shot with Raton Rick at NCOWS and SASS matches. He is a top shooter either place.) I personally like SASS and NCOWS. (I hope to start an NCOWS posse here in central Arizona.) To me, it's like eating out. While I have favorite restaurants, I don't like going to the same one every week. Each one has something that makes it spec
  7. No, I mean does the cylinder spin when the loading gate is opened or does it have to be taken to the half cock to allow the cylinder to spin. On my New Vaqueros I just open the loading gate and the cylinder spins freely to load/unload. My Colt SAA has to be on the second notch to allow the cylinder to spin.
  8. Do the original Vaqueros have the free-spin feature when the loading gate is opened?
  9. Are you kidding? Some folks on here live to argue debate certain topics. You just made a lot of folks happy. Now, start threads on changing Frontiersmen, shooting Outlaw, who are gamers, should Steam Punk be a shooting category, and are we historical enactors or fantasy shooters and everyone will love you.
  10. Same boat. I found some here in the states but the dang shopping cart wouldn't allow me to add any primers... The search engine had bypassed the page that said all online sales were suspended and I had to buy the primers in person, which was a 1900 mile drive!
  11. I am tired of messing with this rifle. The lifter doesn't line up some times and the bullet doesn't want to feed properly most of the time. And after having it apart 30 times, now the hammer doesn't want to stay back most of the time. Are there any experienced Model 66 smiths near Prescott, AZ?
  12. I'm not trying to be difficult but I work so I have to put in for vacation for something like this. I have others telling me that slots may open up as folks drop out. Is that true? Or do I need to make different vacation plans because there's no way I'm going to be in this? Again, not trying to beat this horse to death but I don't want to take my vacation and then in September I get a call telling me a slot opened up and I'm in.
  13. Just so we are clear, if we are not on the list, we need to wait until September to see if anyone drops out? Is there a way to see where we are on the waiting list to guess the odds of getting in?
  14. I have been playing with this 32 rimfire SW Model 1 1/2 using Ramset power loads and modified 32 SW brass.
  15. 22) - Lyman .22 Neck Expander M Die...$15.00 I'll take this. Add it to my total.
  16. 10) - RCBS .38/357 Expander Die...$10.00 I'll take this. Please PM me with your mailing address.
  17. I was reviewing the offerings on the Perdersoli website and I no longer see the Lightning. Am I late to the party or did this just happen?
  18. I would guess they are balloon-head cases. You can look inside and see. Balloon head cases are not as strong as modern solid head cases.
  19. Wild West Mercantile has NCOWS compliant boots as does a few other places. Many NCOWS people like River Junction. https://www.riverjunction.com/Shoes-Boots_c_16.html https://www.wwmerc.com/cgi-bin/Category.cgi?category=7100&type=store Have you read the guide that NCOWS has on their website?
  20. A few years ago they sold for $250-$300. I don't know what they are going for in todays' market. Full-sized metal 9mm have fallen out of favor. I would think your gun came from the Prescott plant as my wife used to work on that line back in the early 1990s.
  21. RC has not been on the wire since 5:29 Saturday so he probably hasn't seen your PM. Paging @Rufus Cogburn You've got mail!
  22. His real name was Jim Elliott. He was the plant manager at Ruger in Prescott at the time.
  23. My 2005 Ruger catalog featured SASS member Elliott James. Anyone know him or of him?
  24. I was told there was a Cowboy World Records website that had Widder's epic GF record on it. Anyone have the address?
