My view is 7 rounds all the time...unless we start to allow DA  revolvers. Then I can see the reason to keep the round count at 5. Otherwise, we need to be promoting our game to non-CAS shooters.

Since I can't pin this at the top comments are now allowed. 

I voted for 7 round mags.
I have no idea if 5 round mags has anything to do with WB growth, but shooting more rounds without as many mag changes sounds good to me.
I also like it because it does separate WB from CAS a bit more. I get really offended when I hear "WB is just CAS with a 1911".

Well SDD I am totally against allowing pencil barrel 6guns in our game. That would just be one more lame excuse to keep the 5 round in the mag limit that is currently holding us back.

DA revolvers of the period should be limited to a side match proposition. No need to mix them in with the mighty 1911 in the main match. No need at all. None. I have a couple and I would like to shoot them. But only in a side match.

That wasn't a proposeal, LD, just an observation. For me, allowing DAs should be the nly reason to keep 1911s at 5-round magazines.

Looking forward to Saturday! Been a long time for me to shoot. Hope my hands can take it.

Has a nice ring. Way more work to make it happen... Leastways mainstream. Club stuff perhaps. Workin on it. Have to "carress" the club lady to go there methinks.... Josey Wales went okay though. We shall see....

Excellent movie, BTW. I know of a club or two that base their "Wild Bunch" action shooting on that movie, including the DA revolvers. I don't have one, but....

I voted 7, but, I think I'd like to see it as an option more than a standard.

7.  Quit kiddin' yourselves, as long as the 1911 remains limited @ 5 rnds, it IS CAS w/a 1911.  When the choice is between WB & 3 Gun, where I can use my 8-rnd mags, stoke the 870 w/8, up to 30 rnds in the AR, use the rifle on targets out to 100, 200, 300, 400 yards or beyond; AND shoot till I hit; it ain't even a difficult choice.
No, I ain't ready, but let's do it anyway!

My local club was inspired by the seven round per mag model. Started with a seven round per mag standard. Grew pretty well with that charter. It now has succumbed to the 5 round pressures. Very sad!

I feel the fun has suffered and it is slipping into somewhat stale SASS 5 round sweeps and stage designs that seem like rehashed SASS stages. It will be interesting what happens to attendance.

Howdy,

Well....... it looks like after a month (almost) the overwhelming percentage is for seven in the mag. :) :) :) :)

How do we get this changed.  Through the TG's?  At the next SASS convention?

Now what? Written proposal or submittal?

I for one would like to see it changed ASAP.  Who is going to make the effort to get it changed, I will help as much as I can to get it changed.

The Wild bunch Committee will be meeting at EOT. We have also scheduled a meeting with the Ambassadors at EOT for Sunday evening. 7 rounds in the magazine will be on the agenda for both meetings.

Howdy,
  Are the Ambassadors supposed to notify the clubs in their respective regions to see how we want to vote?  Do we send them proxies like SASS and the Territorial Governors?  How do we know who is voting for what?
We should let as many WBAS folks as we possibly can know what is happening and be able to tell their ambassador how they want them to vote, on this and any other items that require their vote.

Thanks

Personally I really don't care . It all ends up being about rounds down the range on target,or not ,as in my case most of the time. For me more magazine changes are a good thing  it keeps it challenging and fun . Make it 3 /5/7 I will still shoot the game . Just my 2cents.
