  1. Looking at these Cimarron Model P Revolvers in .44-40, opinions? I have a set of new vaqueros in 357 but feeling like adding to the arsenal.
  2. Yes, he most certainly is licensed to manufacture and sell ammunition as well as manufacture and sell firearms, I thought that was pretty clear the second time around. Merry Christmas to everyone and thanks for the reply’s. Wade
  3. I’m new and just got my first match under my belt a few weeks ago so I don’t know squat but for a shotgun I always had a hankering for a hammered double. Steve Young supplied me with a blued TNN with reversed triggers and I absolutely love the thing. It falls open, loads and empties without a fuss and the hammers cock easily with one thumb. It was the only gun that I didn’t have a chance to fire prior to the match but it was dead on and a pleasure to shoot. When I buy another shotgun it will be probably be another hammered double.
  4. I should have been a bit more clear, the “guy” is actually local ammo supplier/custom gun maker, he’s insured and I trust his work. I’ve used his ammo for a number of firearms for range and personal defense. I have no safety concerns over the ammo.
  5. Hoping to get to my first event as a shooter in mid -December, this with some mods will be my starter cart. Wade
  6. Thanks everyone! great information. I’d love to start reloading my own but I have to figure out the methodology for an easily convertible space in our only spare room, I’m working with only 1060 sq ft of condo so the gear will have to disappear and stow away when not in use. It can be done but that’s not the priority for now. It’s all about the gear and actually getting out there. My single actions, rifle and first 1100 or so rounds of ammo are due to be picked up Wednesday, plan on hitting the range Thursday and I plan on spectating at an event on Saturday. Exciting stuff. Wade
  7. I won't be reloading because I don't have the space currently. but I'm curious as the question came up with the guy that will be loading for me, do you devise loads that seem equally effective in both the rifle or pistol or do you devise a load that runs perfectly in your rifle even if its a bit heavier then you would prefer in your pistols? I'm a complete novice at this game so I'm going with the thought that only stupid question is the one I don't ask. Wade
  8. 35 waist , large/XL shirt, I’ll send a PM with my contact info. I work in Clearwater so I’m passing through most days. No shotgun but I’m partial to side by sides, hammers a plus. No sixgun leather or shell holders yet. I’ve just took delivery of 1100 125 grain bullets from US Reloading Supply in Venice FL, GS Customs Guns & Ammo in Largo on 66th street will load up those for me. I’ll check out the names you provided for the next run. Thanks! Wade
  9. I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate your responses support and advice. I’m taking it to heart. Other then the marlin that ships today and the Vaquero’s that Jim says are nearly ready for shipping all I have is a hat and a comfortable pair of boots. I don’t have room to reload but my preferred FFL will also load cowboy rounds with lead bullets I supply, apparently he provides that service for others in my area that I have yet to meet. That will help with my ammo costs. I can gather ideas from the matches I attend in the next couple of months to get fully outfitted. Thanks again!!
  10. Thanks! I spoke to Moog on the phone. It will only be to spectate but I’d like to go to one day of the Fort White event, was told there would be no November shoot at the Antelope. Wade
  11. Thanks so much for the advice!

    Howdy, New SASS member here looking to get into the fun, I haven't attended a match yet but I see one is scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of the month locally at the Wyoming Antelope club in St Petersburg Florida close to home. Jim Finch at Long Hunter Shooting supply’s Is fixing me up with Marlin 1894 lever action and a matched pair of Ruger New SASS Vaquero’s but it will be a while before I’m fully fitted up but I’m looking forward to slinging some lead.
