    Land Run!

    Because I got bored and curious on my lunch hour. The states which have shooters attending along with the number from each state.

    Land Run!

    I didn't make a particular attempt to format it nicely, but I did rearrange the order such that all shooters appear in order of posse. See attached. 2021 Land Run Attending by Posse Number.pdf
  4. Everyone seems to be thinking of SASS Premier Scoring, but are you talking about the app for iPhone/iPad which is specifically named CAS Scoring? If so, I'm fairly familiar with it and would be happy to help if I can. Send me a PM if that's the case and we can put our heads together.
  5. A good majority of my reloads these days are in Gun Club hulls, and in both my Stoeger and Cimarron 1878 double barrels they shuck just as easy as their STS brothers.
  6. I'll take #2: Universal "shuttle" charge bar. Sending you a PM.
  7. As long as both pistols meet the qualifications for whichever category you're choosing to compete in you'll be fine. There's nothing in the Shooter's Handbook stating your revolvers have to be identical.
  8. I just talked to Bustin' Head Lead this morning and he'll be vending at Land Run. His email is bhlead23@gmail.com.
  9. When I try to go to his old website, it forwards me to onlineoutpost.net. Seems to be an outfit which perhaps bought his stock and or designs and is now making/selling them? I've never heard of them before so it does make me a little concerned about ordering from there with the website all of a sudden forwarding like that.
  10. I just bought a pair from Pioneer Gun Works a few weeks ago. Perhaps they still have some in stock.
  11. These are either out of stock everywhere or people are asking twice MSRP. Anyone have one laying around they aren't using? Brand-new they're about $30 and I'm willing to pay around that amount.
  12. If my math is correct, all of the 38 Special brass should fit in a Medium Flat Rate box and ship for $15.50. If I'm correct and you're willing to do so, I'll take all of the 38 brass. If that works out, please PM me and I'll get the money and info to you. Thanks!
  13. I will take numbers 4 and 5, the Hornaday cooler cowboy shirts. I'll follow up with a PM for payment and shipping. Thank you!
  14. I think this is a big one right here. Revamp the homepage of SASS, and have callouts to the new shooter front and center. That homepage is the number one place where we need to both catch the interest of the new shooter, and give them all the information they'd need in order to feel comfortable and motivated to show up for their first match. With the mess the homepage is now, I think many would-be shooters could be easily confused. As sad as it may sound, we have well less than one minute to get the hooks into that first-time website visitor, and I don't think the current homepage does that we
  15. I think this would be a good compromise. Basically something in the rulebook stating that you do not HAVE to have the sanctioned gear to come out and participate at local matches. People would find this out if they come out, but as others have noted in this thread, getting them out the first time is the real trick.
  16. I didn't take yours--or others--responses like that at all! We all have different viewpoints and it's those varying experiences that make a community strong. On this, I just happen to appear to be in the minority.
  17. So many keep responding with some variation of "I've never seen an established shooter not offer guns." And you're right--I've never seen a time when at least one shooter on a posse didn't offer a newbie the use of their guns and ammo to try the sport out. That's great and I love that about our community. But I still feel from anecdotal evidence of talking to individuals that I or others have brought out to give it a try, that there are those new shooters--I was one of them--who simply are not comfortable with consistently asking others to loan them their gear. And at the same time
  18. Perhaps I'm new enough to SASS that I just haven't become bored yet, but around here I wouldn't say there's a lack of movement or different scenarios. Heck, Steel Challenge is by definition the same eight stages and from what I can tell it's doing alright. I can't blame anyone for being disappointed that the things they love are no longer in style. And of course you're not wrong that the heydays of western cinema are gone. But I don't think that has to be the death of our game, and if there are people dedicated to advancing it, growing it can be done.
  19. Again, the problem in my view is twofold: Because it isn't codified, anyone who might look up the rules before coming out is not going to know that it's an option to start out with guns outside of what is listed in the Shooter's Handbook. People like to attend different clubs. If any rule or allowance is local-only, it becomes highly difficult to keep track of what's allowed where. If that's someone's view already, where's the harm in allowing actual .22s? We're going to start making decisions in our game based on what outside parties think?
  20. With Indian Territory SASS we're making a particular effort to update our Facebook pages and website often. It's definitely paying dividends in views, and we've seen new shooters come out as a result. Hopefully that will continue. As others have mentioned, SASS putting more resources into marketing would help. But I've mentioned my solution to one of the primary challenges facing an interested 20-something already: reduce the monetary cost of entry by allowing 22LR guns--which tend to be well less expensive than centerfire--to be used in official competition. Not merel
  21. I get where you're coming from, but I completely disagree. The fact that fewer westerns are being made is exactly why we need to focus on outreach to younger shooters, because they don't have that external trigger to bring their interest to SASS. That may be fighting an uphill battle, but I think the alternative of just ceding them to other shooting sports would be a poor choice.
  22. Everything I've read on this thread is a valid point, for or against any rule changes. I appreciate the discussion. To me what it all boils down to is this: Every single individual is different. Some are price sensitive, some are time sensitive. Some may be adverse to recoil or the perceived difference to the volume/pressure at their ear. And probably dozens of other differences that I can't even think of. Because of this, anything which can extend participation to all those different people should be considered and probably has been--I'm sure these types of things were discussed b
  23. The family thing is big too--of the shooters I regularly shoot with in my area that I'm sure are younger than I am, there's only one that I know of who is the "first generation" of SASS shooter in their household. No organization can expect to truly grow if that growth only comes from the offspring of its current members.
  24. Generally speaking I agree with you. But I'll use myself as an example (and risk ridicule on this forum): I'm 38 and grew up with G.I. Joe and Rambo. I've seen two western movies/shows in my life, both after joining SASS (Tombstone and Lonesome Dove). The costuming part to me was not of interest, even when I joined (although it is now). I simply enjoyed the type of guns used in SASS far more than any other discipline.
