  1. I’d be interested in seeing what’s available too... I’m “fun sized” and looking for a rig as well (not to high Jack)
  2. Lol... I did read that topic about backup’s (and backups for your backups! LOL). Really appreciate all the feedback. Thanks all!!!! Looking forward to more than just scorekeeper duties (but hey at least I’m involved & helping out, plus learning a ton). Local club meets next Sunday (1st Sunday of the month) and can’t wait. I look forward to each meet. seriously... “Thank You all” for the feedback.
  3. Thanks everyone for the input/ feedback. how’s about them shotty recommendations? I’ve shot a stoeger coach, just thinking the hammered would open the door later for CC if I decide. I’m not dead set on it, just want a decent (Not top) quality That will last and perform. Everyone has probably heard this A hundred times, but I’ve been eyeing the Longhunter units. Hammered or not? I’m a cry once kind of guy and would like to be at $1k or less.
  4. Thanks for the feedback... never thought about construction belt as a shooting rig. Weird cause I use a full construction setup for metal/ relic detecting.
  5. Long time lurker, first time poster (in the forum as a “topic”). Yes I don’t have a SASS number cause I’ve wanted to collect my irons prior to officially joining, but I’m close, super close and getting fired up. I’ve picked up a Winchester 73, pair of SASS vaq’s (both in 45C). Still need to get some leather, and yes I keep an eye out in the classifieds, but I’m a wholesome fella (big boned.... ok, ok I’m fat!!!) and belts in the 49” range seem to be rare in the used section or snapped up quickly. I attend my local club matches and keep score just to be involved. Yes they urge me to shoot, which I typically shoot a stage at the end of the match. Anywho.... my questions: as a newb I plan to shoot in age based category (Wrangler). 1) What scatter gun to select!?!?! Was thinking hammered double just cause it opens CC if I ever felt inclined at a latter date. What brand & what to look for!?!?! 2) in the age based groups “dud’s” (cloths) Have no regulations except outlawed items, no lug boots and period correct lid (hat) correct? So if I wanted to wear mountain man Rendezvous get’up I could. Just looking for some guidance here. I’ve read the rule book “a lot!!!” But still scratch’n my head at times. Sorry for the long post.
  6. Wish I was closer... trying to gather some gear to get into the game
  7. Mongo- I’m not a leather-smith, but wanted to say hey. I’m in Colorado Springs as well. Not yet a member, long time lurker though. Still trying to collect my iron’s (not easy in today’s market)
  8. For what it’s worth, & not trying to hijack, I just picked up a Miroku ‘73 that I eyed on the wall of my local dealer for a couple years. Anywho, brought it home and cleaned and cycled action quitE a bit. The spring on the lever/ trigger safety seemed to “slip off,” cause that linkage vanished (I could barely see it in the stock. I removed the stock and Was able to finagle the spring back over the linkage bar. Just my $.02. As a newb trying to collect my guns it was a lot of dough spent to have an issue Like that, right off the bat & yet to be fired.
  9. Beautiful guns... would love to have them & trying to source my guns as a new shooter (just bought a ‘73), just outta my price range a bit
