Ok to be here?


Recommended Posts

I’m headed to the Orygun Cowboys match on July 24! Hopefully get there early enough to shoot and chat a little and if not just watch some of the competitors and hang out. Thanks all!

 

hopefully I can put a few (hundred) more rounds through my 45 Colt while there as well. Interested in getting my hands on some of the lighter cowboy load 45 to see if I may want to use that in CAS. I know lots of folks use the light 38spl, I just cannot stand that round! Anybody else feel that way?

 

ultimately I’m looking to shoot and have fun anyway, so I reckon it doesn’t ultimately matter

My post in the classified section was deleted, despite people here saying you don't need the number if you want to buy.

Now, now....don't go bashin' my .38 rounds!!!

BP sub, and full case.

We shoot .45 when shooting CC or have extra .45 ammo, and are too lazy to load more .38's.

Remember SASS CAS requires lead bulletts...

Shot shells are lead as well.

Have fun at the match!!!

No I totally get shooting a 38, easier on the body, easier to keep on target, there’s just something about it I don’t like haha. But I’m sure I’ll change my mind a hundred times, probably just going to need to get setup for both 45 Colt and 357mag

Most of us shoot .38 for the cost factor.

Components are cheaper, as well as less powder used.

Need .40 and above to shoot CC (also one handed and costume specific) is why we have kept the .45.

We won a set of .45 Smoke Wagons at our first big match at Tin Star Ranch!!!

Go to SASSNET.COM and download the Shooters Handbook (bottom of the page)

RO I and RO II would not hurt either.

Lots of information.

 

 

Pay special attention to:

I'm still wondering what incident caused that clause to be put in.  There has GOT to be a good story behind it.

Thanks for clarifying...guess it is yet one more perk for your membership.

Hangin in there for the most part.  Trying to think about what to do withmyowndangself when I can finally retire.  There's time to ponder.

When I retired I wrote a couple of books, moved to Arizona and bought a house, odd jobs and remodeling, building models and playing with my trains, collect pocket watches and walking sticks.....whatthehellever I want to do.  You may find new interests, too.  For instance, I'm trying to earn a black belt in napping, messing around in the kitchen inventing new dishes (NOTE: refried beans on a stick doesn't work), accumulating more guns than I can find time to shoot....and can't afford ammo if I do find time, picking on the few liberals in out valley, spoiling my dog, and the kist goes on.

 

Stop by for a visit and I can tutor you on goofing off and lazing around.

I'm pretty dang good at goofing off and lazing around.  I'm also really good at napping.  But a visit sounds like a good plan.

Good people. I could tell you some stories, just suffice it to say they took the high road. I used to shoot there often, before I moved to Texas.

That could get you jail time Okie. :D

Now for the one rule. Always capitalize Saloon  (ACS)

 

Bottles start a tab. NO NO NO; not with my name on it. Wyo Joe needs one as he's buying the first of many rounds. :P

First match yesterday at the local club…. Check!
 

12g sxs coach…. Check! 

 

Pair of Vaqueros (faced chamber, crowned barrel, trigger job, action job, transfer bar removal and weld over, ejection rod smoothing and extension, bisley grip swap, accurized (real word) for cowboy action, sand blasted)…. Check!

 

Now I’m just going to need to hunt for a cheaper leather rig and an 1873 rifle and we are close to in business

Congrats.

 

Do yourself a favor and get good a good leather rig; don't cheap out. The Mernickle Starter rig is good or ask around at your club and see if there is good local maker. Get something made for THIS game.

 

I'm sure you'll find a 73 with a little patience.

The saying goes...

Your biggest mistakes (and expensive) is buying the wrong guns and leather!

Buy a good set of leather...

Your pistols are GREAT!

You'll find that '73!


talking to the misses about why I need a $500-700 rig right now actually hahaha. I mean, I’m like look if I get a cheaper rig I’m just going to end up getting this rig anyway later on, so it’s actually cheaper to get the more expensive rig now! I think that’s logical hahahaha.

Seriously though.

I did finally treat myself to a lower end Mernickle rig, after 15 years.

I don't and won't need more for what I do.

My times have improved, as the fit is there, the better ease on drawing my pistols, no leather in the way...ect.

It was a good investment.

Ended up scooping up Major Art Tillerys Rig that he was selling on the wire. Gonna start cross draw for now!


Picked up a Johnny Meadows Uberti 1873 so in a few weeks hopefully I’ll be ready for my first match.

Welcome to the fire, Wyo Joe. :D

 

Check out the Molalla River Rangers in Canby. I shot with them when I lived in Oregon. Great bunch of folks. 

They will have a SASS orientation on Aug 15th and again on Oct 17th.  Clackamas County is a good location for cowboy shooting.  Also, check out the club in Ariel, WA.  I know the people who run it and am sure they would welcome you.  Time to get started before the cold, winter rainy season starts.
