  1. I am new to this, but are you allowed to set up your shooting stick before the timer starts?
  2. I always wonder why people put a Yeti decal on their pickup, it like advertising you may have something to steal.
  3. The scratch is in the same place on all of he case and it is the same size also.
  4. I have not examined any other spent brass. Reason I think there is a problem is because i have reloaded for revolvers and bolt action rifles and never noticed this before. Never for leveler actions nor Uberti.
  5. I am just getting started in SASS/CAS. I recently purchased a new Uberti 73 in a .38/.357 caliber. I took it to a local gun range and fired 15 rounds. When I stopped to pick up the spent brass I noticed three things. First on each piece of brass about a quarter of the brass was blackened by what I assume is escaping gas. Second was in the “smoked” area there was a very small be notable scratch where i could see fresh brass, this was maybe an 1/16 to an 1/8 of an inch from the lip of the brass. Third was all pierces of brass were out of round, not much but possible to note with the naked eye. The questions are: 1 Are all three item caused by a single issue? I assume items 1 and 3 are and the problem is the chamber is somehow out of round. 2 If this is correct what is the remedy, again I would think the only solution is to rebarrel the rifle? As for the scratch I have no idea, the scratch runs horizontal across the brass. I took the rifle back to the dealer (a good man to deal with) and he has returned the rifle to Uberti along with the spent brass. I throughly like the rifle, but am wondering if new barrel is the only solution? Any thoughts will be appreciated. forgot to mention I was firing factory loaded .38 special ammo.
  6. Jack who? Oh great now I have to watch the movie again.
  7. I don’t have a dog in this fight...but I don’t want to be around when you tell Shane that.
  8. I just learned I am slow.... for a moment I felt so lucky.
  9. I just when thru the same process. I sent a USPS money order to an individual. I sent it first class, certified (recipient required to sign for letter). This allows you to track the letter thru the delivery. I am glad I did as it was mailed on the 3rd and did not reach its destination until 13th. It was posted on the east coast and sent to Texas, I thought it got lost, I took so long. Was glad I was able to track it in case I had to file a claim. Fortunately it arrived to the seller.
  10. I am new to SASS and in the process of acquiring the necessary guns and accessories. I have been looking at different revolvers and have been draw to the Schofield revolvers. But going to matches and reading post on the SASS net it is obvious that SSA Colts and its clones are by far the style of choice for SASS shooting. I am wondering if there is a reason beyond Colt SSA being the “ gun” of the old west. Are Schofield revolvers harder to shoot well, more difficult to tune, given to malfunction, harder to obtain a good sight picture, etc.? Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks in advance to all DB
  11. I know. People see my shop and say “So you are a wood worker.” I try to be honest, so I have to reply, “no I just buy the tools”
  12. Hello, do the holsters have material in the them that prevents the tops from folding in when reholstering the revolvers? Also you state that these were handmade for 5/12 NM Vaqueros, would these fit any 5 1/2 Colt SA clone? Did you measure the belt from the base of the buckle? Thanks
  13. Thanks to both of you. I have been to and watched matches. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I have decided on 38/357 cal as I already reload for both. I have not decided between new/used Ruger Vaqueros or used SA brands that had an initial higher cost.
  14. Hello , I am new to SASS and in the process of buying the necessary guns, equipment, etc. I would appreciate any tips or suggestions on ways to find out how reputable online gun dealers are since I can not deal with them in person. I would be confident dealing with many of the well known dealers and those who are mentioned here, but I have come across some guns listed with small businesses out of state. Their pricing appears to be very reasonable. And the posted photos don’t show any obvious flaws. Some are on Gun Broker some are not. I don’t know if listing there carries any weight as far as being reputable. Thanks for any help.
