    New Remington Marlin 1894C and SC 38/357 now available

    I think the best way to be disenchanted with the whole SASS thing is to show up at your first meet with a "Henry" rifle. And then try to run it ten times without a hick-up. So sad to see this. Of course the peanut gallery will offer lots of encouragement......Like, "You shouldn't have bought a Henry"......"Run it like you stole it"........"You should have bought a $1600 Winchester 73 for your first match"....etc If the new Marlin even runs half as better than a "Henry", it will be a great way to get involved with SASS......And maybe a few gunsmiths will figure out to tune them so the new shooter has a path to better performance.

    Honda 2000i Storage Solution

    The only thing more ubiquitous at a SASS event than a Winchester 73 is the small Honda 2000i generators. Now that my trailer has a large capacity solar sysyem, the only time I use my Honda 2000i generator is for AirConditioning and my wifes hair dryer. I usually haul a pair of Honda 2000i generators in the bed of the truck. Even though the truck has a cap, the dust still gets into everything while on the road. I needed a way to transport and store them and keep out of harms way. Searching at Home Depot for a solution, with tape measure in hand, I found RUBBER MAID #0141 / #42 (these are the numbers on the bottom) totes with covers. When I put the Honda into the tote they fit perfectly! But the covers had a slight bulge as the generators are about a 1/2" too tall for these totes. A solution was to cut a strip out of the top to accomodate the Honda's handle and then cover with a piece of plywood sealed with Dicor. A couple coats of clear finish and done.... Now they are protected during transport, and the totes with the new top make great tables when sitting around camp.....Nice!

    Shipping antique guns via usps

    This is the part that makes a pre1898 Rifle, not an antique.... Most ammunition we are talking about is readily available and still manufactured in USA
