Is this pistol SASS legal


Recommended Posts

28mm is over an inch, so no, but I'd like to see somebody do it... with paper targets... might make quite a dent in steel.

It depends on how big that guy is that is holding it.

Looks like one of the munchkins from Wizard of Oz.

Even if it were legal, keeping the round’s velocity to under 1000 FPS probably means the round hits at less than 10 feet in front of the shooter leading to a SDQ.  “BANG, ROLLLLLLLL, THUD” .  
second non PC thought, didn’t they shoot midgets from that thing at the circus in the old days?

If you show up at a match with that no one would challenge legality. Maybe have your own category " Super large extra big grandiose big grin on face category".:D

Would a caliber conversion make it legal? :D

That's it, convert to 4 gauge.

From Google, "4 gauge or 4 bore firearms are nominally 1-inch caliber. Actual bore diameter varies by several hundredths of an inch in either direction, though technically 4 gauge should always be have a 1.052 inch (26.72 millimeter) bore diameter."

Get a pair and shoot gunfighter.

If a guy can do that I’m not sure anyone would want to tell him he can’t shoot

How many hides would it take to make a holster for this thing?

A matched pair would require 2 holsters.

If they make a second one, will it have a consecutive serial number, or will it be from a different block of numbers?

Might be big enough to hunt rats in Texas.  :lol:

A little undersized for the mosquitoes in Minnesota but could work if you made a head shot.

That would put the hurt on a whole herd of cattle and the buckle would be the size of the radiator on my Impala.
