SASS Kentucky State Match 2019

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure I gave my 38's to my niece when she turned 13. Think I will have to stick with the 45's. That is kind of funny pretty boy, I have a first generation Colt made in 1897 that is a 45 so not sure how that is not period correct.

I see where you specified a 73, I shoot 66's; only 73 I have is one I won one year in NC. That is a lot of one/won in one sentence.

Smokin’ Joe Anderson, the father of Possum Trot, had a ‘75 Remington that was fully engraved, serial number 22 that was chambered in .45 Colt.  He showed me papers that authenticated it and it spent the entire time that I kept a room with him under my pillow, in the cabin he shared with me and Schoolmarm. 

 

It went to a good home when he passed, but I sure wish he’d left it to me!!

 

 I recall reading of several instances where cowboys had their Winchester ‘73s rechambered  or re-barreled to .45 Colt to match their Colt or other.45 revolver.

 

I look at “Period Correct” with the same eyes that I view that other PC!!!

After seeing the buckles for this match I dont believe I will be shooting too much black. Pistols go pretty good but the Double Barrel takes some getting used to.

Yup, you were in Florida and didn't swing by and say Howdy to a fellow Outlaw.

Hurtful.:lol:

How close are you to Steinhatchee? How about Tampa? That is where we have been for two weeks. On the way home now with a new 5th wheel. How close are you to Orlando, I will be there next month for a few days and could use some bullets, assuming I drive down in the truck but may take the bike, or might even fly though I hate to fly any more. This work stuff is killing me but someone has to support all the retired cowboys.

I am sure we can take care of that swelling you are experiencing, I am assuming it affects you hat? If the gate needs expanding I am sure Boots would love to fire up one of the machines and make a hole.

 

See you in Kentucky.

Seems like Black Gold has been an effective "head shrinker" the last few years.

We'll see if Ky State at Ponderosa Pines will keep up the tradition

Today was our fearless leaders Birthday by the way, not that it matters to the the KY State match but it will get this thread back to the first page. By the way, he did not get what he wanted for his Birthday.

Other than that one minor happenstance Copperhead, I hope it was a good one.

Well boy's with ol Cheyenne getting turned, it could be time for turning for our selfs. So come on down to our Crap Shoot next weekend, March 16 & 17 and we will get started. Or at least talk about it. We might not have Cheyenne's weather but we going to roll the dice and might get lucky. Bring your Pro Steel gear we just might need to test some new targets.

Won't be able to make the Kentucky State shoot in May. SADLY.

Got some "issues" that need to be addressed.

Might involve a sawbones with a knife.

That part is in discussion right now.

But I will keep him covered just in case he's lookin' to collect a bounty.:o

 

I WILL be at BLACK GOLD 2019!!!

 

Best of luck to Copperhead and Miss Bo and the rest of the Ponderosa Pines crew in the new Kentucky State Match.
