  1. Ace Hardware sells brass channel that fits almost perfectly over the front of the site. Inexpensive and easy to glue on with black max.
  2. WB sounds fun. I have an 1897 shotgun. I have A 1911 and a lever gun. But the 1911 and lever gun are not .45. I've spent so much money on guns and stuff for cowboy action I can't justify buying more guns for Wild Bunch. if I could use the guns I have I would love to try it.
  3. The first match that I watched had a split pistol stage. I saw three or four Shooters draw an empty strong-side gun. Because of that I do draw my weak side first when there is split pistols.
  4. I didn't expect it to be so complicated. It seems that the consensus is to let the stage determine. That makes sense. I get so easily confused already, changing how I draw with each stage could be interesting. I may need to stay with a set order for a while. There is a story behind that alias. When I started shooting I got so nervous and confused that I frequently got a procedural. I had picked a different handle but I referred to myself as Procedural Pete. When I officially signed up for SASS and I saw I needed alternate names I used Procedural Pete as one of the alternates. That the name they picked. I don't use that name at the matches. By the way, I haven't had a procedural since...this afternoon.
  5. When I started shooting SASS about a year ago, as a right-handed shooter, I started drawing my right or strong-side pistol first. I've noticed many shooters draw their weak-side pistol first. I noticed today while practicing transitions that I could be laying my shotgun down with my strong hand while starting to draw the pistol with the weak hand. That seems to be a good argument for a week hand first draw. What are your reasons for drawing the weak or strong hand pistol first?
  6. I read about the Henry 22 soft stroke done by Widowmaker Hill #59054. I had previously bought commemorative Eagle Scout Henry 22 rifles for my 3 Eagle Scout boys. I wanted to soft stroke the rifles so my son's could have maximum enjoyment. I emailed Widowmaker Hill and asked if it would be possible to get some information on how the soft stroke was done. He graciously spend a considerable amount of time on the telephone on two occasions talking me through the process. He even sent along some Springs free of charge. His generosity is greatly appreciated and I hope to get a chance to get even one day. At the very least I'll watch for opportunities to pay it forward.
  7. Amen! Especially useful when searching for something in past posts.
  8. About 20 monthlys a year. Practice once or twice a month.
  9. Thank you!
  10. Thanks for your response Larson. I am aware that other things need done to remove the transfer bar. I have installed the power custom hammers with the half cock notch and have been considering removing the transfer bars. It was my understanding that you need to weld up the hammer to make up for the Gap caused by the removal of the transfer bar. Marauders answer to the post above left me a bit confused on the subject. I guess I would just being hopeful that one could grind some away rather than Welding which of course is much simpler.
  11. Marauder, by filing the hammer are you referring to a cure for transfer bar pinch or allowing the removal of the transfer by filing the hammer rather than welding up the hammer?
