  1. Splits and dry fire par mentioned above work well if you are looking for something free to start with
  2. Oh I didn't mean to imply dangerous. Just based on the concensus, I just might not be happy with the performance. They actually did just fine though so all is good.
  3. I use TB and 5.5 gr with 200 gr bullet is the same formula I was given. I did about 500 loads of 5 gr TB for a shoot today. Based on the posts here it sounds like I'm not going to be happy about it lol
  4. I've been wondering the same. I think people are thinking things will go back to "normal" come November, but if the election goes a certain way, I don't see this drought ending anytime soon. I just keep buying supplies when I see them. I have a few friends who keep an eye out for me too. Primers are certainly the bottleneck.
  5. You ALWAYS NEED backups of backups. Any gun enthusiast know this! :-D seriously though, sorry for your luck on two crapping out at once! True story though, my first shoot ever, I had a guy who was loaning me some of his reloads to shoot. He had a high primer in one load that I didn't notice till I had rotated the cylinder too far and it got stuck. I actually have an extra set of pistols so I finished the match with those. My girlfriend had come to the match with me and I got to say "and this is why I have extra guns...". So much more affective when it actually applies to a real life event lol
  6. I was just commenting this morning that the biggest difference between my slicked up Uberti and my stock Miroku is that dang lever safety spring. If that were as nice as my Uberti's, it wouldn't be that bad. Still not as smooth as the Uberti though. It's so stiff you almost have to wrap your thumb around the stock to get the safety to reliably come off. Wrapping the thumb is a big no-no for optimal speed but I wouldn't know. I'm slower than molasses in winter time! Lol
  7. I am sure this topic has been discussed a bunch already but I thought I would start another. I'm thinking about picking up a Derringer. From my research, Bond seems to be a great choice. Specifically I'm looking at the Cowboy Defender model. Those of you with knowledge on Derringers for side matches, or just in general, is this a decent choice or should I get another model? I just want to shoot 45 lc with it. I'm looking for some other opinions to make sure I'm not missing something. Thanks in advance!
  8. Great to hear! We are trying to do a local match here this weekend (just found out it will probably be canceled though) then will be in Benton City the last 2 weekends of Oct for cowboy then wild bunch. I will have to plan a trip over there soon. My sister lives in Bellingham so the smokey point shoot would be easy to make. I will definitely let you guys know. Would be great to see you all again soon!
  9. I figured as much but thought I would ask. Thanks all! T-Bone how are you bud? Missed you in Medical Lake. How did the fast pitch tourney go?
  10. Hello, I have a husband and wife that I'm trying to get involved in this. Do they need to be members of sass to shoot their first local match? Probaby a question for my local chapter but thought i would post here. Thanks! Deuce
  11. Rest in peace brother! I enjoyed your music and the one time I got to see you live!
  12. Crap...sorry about posting twice...I think I finally need to buy some reading glasses for using this phone to post lol
  13. Welcome! Being new myself I can share what I found. I would go to a match and you'll probably find something that will work. I think you might have said that's not possible as there wasn't much going on in your area. I bought my stuff ahead of time because I'm a weirdo and don't like using other people's stuff if I can help it. I regret that because I bought some stuff that isn't really optimal because I had no clue. I did wait on the cart and picked up a great used one to get started. The last bigger match I was at had a lot of used pieces for sale. I've been to one local and a couple larger regional type matches. It's a blast and I've met the nicest, most helpful people along the way! I'm addicted! My bank account and chores around the house have been paying the price! :-D
