JEDI Gunfighter of the Year - 2010

Widder, SASS #59054

Recommended Posts

Well, in 2008, it was Manatee for his efforts in getting the Pale Rider GF category into alot of BIG matches.


In 2009, It was Calgary Kate and Mescalero for their efforts in supporting our troops overseas.


This year, The Jedi Council has decided not only to award the Jedi GF of the Year but to also honor this Cowboy with a Lifetime Achievement recognition.


2010 JEDI GF of the Year:





He has won his GF category at Winter Range and been a National Champion.

He has finished 2nd at EOT in GF Category (World Champioships) a total of 7 times. Five of those were consecutive.

He has travelled overseas to help promote SASS/CAS.

He is one of our more prominent ROII Instructors

He and his home club host one of the best Regionals (Mid-West) every year in Ohio called Guns of August.


He is prominent at most big matches, coast to coast, and is always ready to help in those matters that enhance a match and help a shooter.



Congratulations Lassiter. You do us all proud.



..........Widder (representing the Jedi Council)


Council members:

Badlands Bud

Jed I Knight

Possum Skinner

I am fortunate to live very close to Lassiter, and therefore get to shoot with him almost every weekend. The man eats and sleeps cowboy, He has worked on my guns, always gives good advice and always willing to lend a hand..He personifies the cowboy way and I am proud to call him friend. I wish I could somehow help him out a fraction of how much he has helped and guided me in my short cowboy career so far. To watch him shoot you simply have to say "wow" and then you relize the amount of work and dedication it takes to get to that level. He makes the 87 look positively smooth and flawless and this past year he has been tinkering with the lightning rifle and its amazing the speed and lack of jams he has mastered with it...Tom I tip my hat to ya....and look forward to march so we can start playing again...

The last match of the year, I shot gunfighter for the first time! I was along side of Lassiter asking advice on how to shoot each and every stage. Tom is the kind of pard who loves to teach others. I have spent many occasions in the back of his horse pasture "in school." Well deserved my friend!

Add my congratulations!

I was privileged to time for him in "speed pistol" at the US Open. The man is scary fast!
