  1. I have not seen a 209 conversion made for U.S. distribution.   Thankfully, the supplies of percussion caps seem to be flowing again.  

    I too have enough cylinders to shoot a 6-stage match.  But, I went with stainless steel, so I just rinse the cylinders and put them in the sonic cleaner afterward.  Done.

    I no longer mess with rolling paper cartridges.

    On Fleabay, I found some rubber seals for the rear and front of the cylinders, cheap.   Because sure enough, you will shoot a multiday match with at least one day in the rain.

  2. I don't use anything on the shells themselves.  The shotgun has been properly honed.  When I reload the shells I use a MEC Super Sizer to make sure the base is properly sized.  Then I use Rubicon Ryder's shotshell sizer, (sold by Scarlett Darlin'), mounted on my cart.  It makes sure that there is no bulge at the business end of the shell and tapers it about 3 degrees.  (SASS Legal).  Reloaded shells, and even some factory shells, have a tendency to flare at that end.

    Can I use CFDA holsters in SASS comp.?

     

     

    We have a shooter at one of our clubs who uses a CFDA holster on his right side, in every way it looks just like a SASS competition holster.  You'd never know the difference if it wasn't for the deflector.   He might have had the same person make his left-side holster.  It matches perfectly.

    John,  got the picture. Local machine picture is what I was hoping to do.

     

    We cannot upload photos from our devices straight to the server.   You can post pictures from a photo-hosting site like Photobucket.  Or, you can post a link if you have it somewhere like FB.

  6. This game is primarily about entertainment and having fun, safely.  Toward that end, we will do everything we can to accommodate any shooter's disability.

     

    Boots are only required in the two costume categories.   We have shooters who need a walker, and those in wheelchairs, crutches, and canes.   One-armed shooters, double amputee shooters, and shooters with all sorts of implants.   All that's required is for the shooter to get to the range somehow.   If it can be arranged for the shooter to participate safely, we'll do it.

    I'm confused... Hillbilly Jim bought the revolver, which is en route and due to arrive tomorrow or Tuesday, but Kid Death got scammed out of $500 somehow... ?

     

    "Kid Death", got took by a scammer. The scammer saw his post, and since the Kid's email address is plastered across multiple threads, the scammer simply impersonated Deuce and convinced Kid to send a Paypal F&F payment.   Deuce never responded to Kid's offer.

    Why is this on mine and no one else’s 

     

    This message was posted on every ad on the first page of the Classifieds last night.  We have several pinned posts that aren't getting through to people or are just being ignored.  Buyers have been scammed by outsiders, not wire members.  They've been impersonating the sellers and intercepting the payments.
