    making Henry Big Boy SASS ready???

    Just a suggestion..... Use 357 brass in it. It makes it easier to to adjust the overall length to suit the gun.

    Words That I Thought I’d Never Hear

    You might wish to look seriously at Boulder City, Nevada. Small, no gambling, limited growth, quiet..... If you want noise, just go over the hill.

    I thought it was the jawbone of an ass? But then the scripture doesn't say for sure. https://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/40324/how-did-cain-kill-abel

    Pioneer Coil mainspring conversion

    I have two installed and have installed two others. The feel is completely different than the flat spring that come with the rifle. There is more effort needed initially and then the force drops to considerably less after the lever has moved about an inch.

    New alias idea

    CLOTHING & ACCOUTREMENTS Cowboy Action Shooting™ is a combination of historical reenactment and Saturday morning at the matinee. Participants may choose the style of costume they wish to wear, but all clothing must be typical of the late 19th century, a B-Western movie, or Western television series. SASS puts a great deal of emphasis on costuming because it adds so much to the uniqueness of the game and helps to create a festive, informal atmosphere that supports the friendly, fraternal feeling we encourage in our competitors. All shooters must be in costume, and we encourage invited guests and family also to be costumed. Shooters must remain in costume at all match events, including dinners, award ceremonies, dances, and other SASS related activities. All clothing and equipment must be worn appropriately and how it was intended, or how it would have been in the Old West or as seen on B-Western movies and television. Specific requirements for costuming lie within the costuming shooting categories; please refer to the shooting category section for a list of requirements. There are two(2) "costume" categories that have specific requirements. All other categories could easily accommodate most any costume.

    Rules for classic cowboy

    DO NOT BUY ANY GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go to ALL your local clubs. Do not concern yourself with categories. Try everything offered to you......... Talk to everyone.

    Ammo for us beginners

    My first and only suggestion is that you go to your local club match and let the person in charge make an announcement that you are looking for someone to reload for you until you get your equipment, or that will at least allow you to come over and teach you to reload your own on their equipment. You supply the bullets/powder/primers/cases. You will easily save $20.00/50 rounds over factory ammo. Take the savings and buy your own equipment. Saving $40.00 to $50.00 a match adds up quickly.

    WTB Look a like Quigley Knife

    http://www.stapelknives.com/quigley.html A little expensive.

    Cracked shotgun stock

    The 1878 is a heavy gun and the wood in the area of the trigger is very thin. Constantly grabbing it up off a prop will cause the wood to crack in the weakest place. It also appears, in the picture provided, that someone gouged out some wood to make it fit and then didn't bed back the excess space. In addition, factory stocks are the least expensive they can buy, and are usually kiln dried mixture of mostly sapwood instead of the stronger heartwood. Repairing a stock usually makes it stronger in the area of the break but it takes time to do correctly. Looking at the pieces in the picture, I don't think I could save this one.

    Cracked shotgun stock

    Bastogne walnut is a hybrid cross between English walnut and black walnut. It is superior in strength to both and can take the hard recoil of the largest caliber rifles. This translate, for cowboy uses, into a stock that can take much more abuse and keep on ticking.

    Cracked shotgun stock

    Unfortunately, a new hand made stock fitted to your gun would cost almost as much (or more) than a complete new gun. MSRP is $579.00. Good wood is not cheap.

    Whatever you do. DO NOT LOOSE ANY PIECES.
