  1. Thanks. I was grateful when Mountain Man Champ shared the info with me, so I thought others might find it useful as well. Glad you did.
  2. Just posted to the Events Wire Fall Round-Up 2021, our 3-day annual event scheduled for Sept 24-26, will consist of Side Matches, a Warm-up match and a free pizza party on the 24th, a Saturday night banquet and two fun-filled days of Cowboy Action Shooting on the 25th and 26th, ending with a Sunday afternoon awards luncheon. Late September is a beautiful time of year in the upper Midwest. Whether you live close, have to drive a bit, or want to take a road trip, you should consider coming to Fall Round-Up 2021. Be sure to mark your calendars, put back a little ammo if it’s scarce, then

  4. Excellent info and just what I needed to know. What a crowd!
  5. I plan to shoot a little B Western this summer. A friend of mine thought there is a minimum rowel size requirement. The January 2021 SASS Handbook says only that "Western spurs with rowels and spur straps are required for men," mentioning nothing about rowel size. Am I missing another set of rules or is SASS silent on rowel size? PK
  6. As a newer shooter (not yet two years) I'm uncomfortable offering advice on this forum as there are members much more knowledgeable than me. on about every subject. I'm much more of a consumer of your experience and advice. For that, I thank you all - I've learned a great deal. However, I'm going to make an exception and post a video I made showing how I built my own set of targets so I could practice. I'm sharing this here because, as a newer shooter, this is certainly helping me improve and want to share it with other newer shooters who might also find having their own targets useful
  7. I've been tasked with exploring potential sponsor interest for Illowa Irregulars' annual 3-day match in September - Fall Round-Up 2021. I'm thinking business cards, ads, etc. printed in shooter booklet or samples for the shooter packets. Does anyone have any suggestions? For more information about our club and Fall Round-Up 2021 go to www.illowairregulars.com.
  8. Scout, glad to hear you're stopping by Camden Mills (Illowa Irregulars) on your way to EOT. I can assure you that you'll be warmly welcomed along with any other visiting cowboys that may wish to stop in. If you're unfamiliar with our club or range take a look at our website www.illowairregulars.com . I've been in College Station Texas these past 5 weeks (leave for home tomorrow). I had hoped to get in a different match each weekend, but the winter storm caused 3 of the clubs I planned to shoot at the middle two weekends to cancel their matches. At least I was able to shoot with Thunde
  9. SASS released the final list of the 500 people registered for EOT 2021. I summarized some interesting characters about the list and posted them to our club's website: www.illowairregulars.com . Of course, I wrote it with our club members in mind, but thought some on the Wire might find it interesting just the same. Here it is. ------------------------------------- As you know, EOT will be held East of the Mississippi (Paradise Pass in Indiana) for the first time. Needless to say, this generated unprecedented interest in many cowboys and cowgirls in the Midwest, East, and South w
  10. I second the Axil Ghoststryke Earbuds. They work well and provide the ability to increase the conversation volume in steps to just what you need. All this while suppressing the "bang." They come with different size foam tips so you can find the size that works best for you. The other thing to be careful of is to make sure the batteries last longer than the match. The Axial Ghoststryke earbuds come with rechargeable batteries and have never run out of juice for me during a match - they last all day. I just buy the GS Electronic version which is their lesser expensive model. I don't need
  11. I bought a couple thousand CCI primers midsummer 2020. I have two Ruger Vaqueros and a Uberti '73, all tuned by a well-known East coast gunsmith, and all use .38 Special ammo. I loaded a few hundred rounds using CCI primers last summer to test them. My experience was that both my pistols and rifle would occasionally not strike the primer with enough force to set them off- let's just say 10% to 15% of the time. It happened with both my pistols and rifle, one more than the other but I can't remember if it was worse on the rifle or pistol. Having said that, it was frequent enough on b
