  1. This trick is so cheap and works like a charm. I pick mine up at Home Depot. Diamond Curly has been using this with great success and he passed the trick along to me. It is just flat the best there is.
  2. I have used Run-N-Iron out of Nebraska for my CZ and it runs nicely. I am sure Johnny Meadows can give you great service as well.
  3. As a SASS member in the 100,000, it would be smart of me not to join this string of comments and observations. Please notice I did not split my infinitive; however, I am fascinated by how quickly Small Pistol Primers did leave the shelves. It clearly shows having a reasonable stock of reloading components for one year or two years of shooting is a wise thing. Having said that I am down to one year's worth of powder and primers.
  4. I lost one of my holsters yesterday at Badger Mountain Range War. It was a fantastic match, perfect weather, location, and shooters. My Posse 6 was filled with excellent Cowgirls and Cowboys and the stages gave us some challenges. Thank you to the M Lazy C Ranch whose accommodations and meals were top notch. Not sure you would find more than 1 lost holster, but just in case I have attached a picture of mine. Thank you for looking as my other holster is in the safe crying for its partner. Russ The Red
  5. Notice I didn't mention who wrote the stages! I shall remain a secret.
  6. In the midst of a very trying year, the Border Vigilantes put on one Hell of a championship match. Hell on Wheels, for all the shooters I saw and talked with, was outstanding and just what the good Doctor ordered. But, in every shoot there is never enough time to really "Thank" the hard workers in the background, so I'm here to give a big shout-out to Assassin's team starting with his wonderful wife Belle, Water Boy (from Chey-Cast), and Hawkeye Sam ( a great RO instructor) and his wife. Lastly, I want to thank the writers of the 12 stages, who gave us plenty of movement, thought provoking sweeps, and an excellent Top Gun shoot-out. By the way, keep an eye on Cimarron Sonia as she won overall Top Gun while remaining as cool as a cucumber in going up against Cobra Cat, who was as gracious in loss as he is humble in victory.
  7. Thank you. I qualified on an M1 in 1962 and two years later on a M1A, better known as the M14. If life doesn't teach us anything, it teaches us it repeats itself. One of my 10 Grandchildren shoots SASS with me, sporting clays, and at the range. He can't wait to get his hands on this rifle after hearing all of my stories. He is only 12 and yet has shot most everything. Is the barrel the big difference on the Match Grade?
  8. I will buy it. How do you want to close the deal? I sent a PM to your address. Russ the Red

  10. Hey, that's only about 15 hours from Denver.
  11. Please add your own story. I lost my wife Kayla to a brain disease just two months ago. It has been a rough two months, but two SASS Cowboys have been there to help lift my spirits. I want to publicly thank Diamond Curly and Buckeye Al. Both have been a huge blessing over and over again. Buckeye Al was quick to send a condolence card followed by several phone conversations. He lost his wife of nearly 60 years just one year ago and he is there to help me find a path forward and encourage me to share feelings. Diamond Curly followed shortly thereafter with telephone conversations and a trip out to shoot black powder at his Gun Club. He set me up with powder, flask, caps, balls, and other tools of the trade for my new 1860 Colt Army. It is indeed a blessing for me to know Cowboys like this are all around me as we head back out to the range in Briggsdale County, Wildcat Ridge, and Border Vigilantes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Russ the Red
  12. When I was a young kid in Oklahoma (50's) the local Army Surplus store had these stacked in barrels selling for $10. The school I attended was built on an old rifle range and we would pick up spent and misfired bullets which fit these carbines.
  13. You must have shot at Wild Cat with the gentle wind blowing in your hair. I was in another posse.

      +Happy I do have this address and funds are on the way.

  15. Sorry to hear about your illness. I am going to see a very good friend of mine who is dying of Parkinson's as a result of Agent Orange contact. He is a 25 year Marine and tough as they come by some of these diseases don't give a damn about toughness. Thank you for your time "in country."
