SASS Alias:  Turkey Flats Jack

SASS #:  107643

Where you are from:  Live in Roswell, Ohio.  Raised outside of Turkey Flats on Blizzard Ridge. 

How long you’ve been Cowboy Action Shooting:  Officially became a SASS member about June of '18 although I shot CAS in '06 & -'07

 

My back story: Having just turned 16 in the beginning of '61 and wanting to be my own man I rode off to join up in the army. I knew my local unit wouldnt have me so I made my way to Richmond. Upon my arrival I lucked out and was signed up to ride with the Radford Rangers out of Camp Davis. Having my own horse turned out to be a great advantage. I didnt get stuck in the basic infantry. There were 6 of us named Jack riding under LT Col. Langhorne. At muster they started calling us by where we were from. Not wanting to admit I was a yank I went with what the area was called where I was born. I became known as Turkey Flats Jack. I wasnt a model soldier but I followed orders and kept calm under fire. I somehow managed to ride out the war mostly unscathed. After Lee surrendered I wasnt sure what to do. I didnt know how to do much other than ride, shoot, and follow orders. I ended up being a deputy marshall here and there among the small towns up and down the Ohio River. Musta been right about September of 1871 I found myself in Chicago IL with a prisoner that needed turned over to the local marshal. Wanting to rest a bit before heading out to look for more work I figured spending a few days in a big town, might be interesting having never done it before. I found a nice spot with rooms called the Palmer House. Sitting in the lobby having dinner there was a bit of a squabble break out over a card game. Not wanting to see such a nice place get broke up I stepped in and put an end to it. Dealing off the bottom of the deck isnt something i'd put up with either had I been playing. The kid didnt put up much of a fight with me and went along peacefully to the jailhouse. Figure he knew he was better off there than in a pine box. When I got back to the Palmer House the old timer that had been sitting next to bar introduced himself as Allan and offered me a job with his Pinkerton Detective Agency. Well i've been drawing a monthly pay plus expenses riding shotgun on the CH&D Railway for a while now.

Alias: Sloe Moe

#108017

 

I'm in the NE end of Denver, Aurora, technically.

Never been to a Match, didn't own a SA until a couple months ago. Bought a used NM Blackhawk .357, 6.5" from a guy at work 'cause it was cheap. It was cheap 'cause it came with the 9mm cylinder, no .357 cylinder. So I got a .357 cylinder and a bunch of spare internal parts off Gunbroker and started watching the youtube about SAOs . Musta clicked a SASS video by mistake and here I am. The hard workin' Ruby Ruthless informs me that my SASS packet might arrive tomorrow in the mail. 

I do have a few handguns, all stainless and all .357, except for the Smith 629. Oh, and except for a Baretta 92G Brigadier, 'cause everybody needs  9. 

I do reload a bit, but only ,357 and .44. On a single-stage.

Sand Creek Raiders is my closest SASS club, I hear that they won't have a Match until Springtime. I hear that I'm not to buy any guns until after I've shot somebody else's, but I've pretty much got my heart set on a pair of NM Vaqueros, in stainless, 'cause I just love the stainless, and in .357, ditto sort of. And I really, really want a Win 1897 SG. SASS legal and will work on zombies too. My lever action rifle I'll hafta think on, assume it'll be in .357.  But I am shoppin' for a good hat. A good pair of boots, too.

I'm right-handed, but left-eyed, and grew up shooting a rifle left-handed on account of the eye. Now, I shoot both hands about equally slowly and poorly. So the idea of shooting double duelist does appeal to me some. I will be shooting in one of the Senior categories, depending on how long it takes me to get my stuff together.
