    2018 Hangin at Coyote Creek in Louisiana, a great success. Thanks!

    Thanks for the positive comments! Please check out our Bayou Bounty Hunters website for photos and scores which are now posted. PS: My 4 misses at the Fort were due to my 73 rifle locking up with 4 rounds in the tube. Dagnabbit! Chief Rick, thank you for the great WTC lesson on Saturday, hahahaha..... Dusty
  2. Our 2019 annual match in LA at the Bayou Bounty Hunters, was smaller in attendance (44 shooters) but still just as large in quality. The month before, we purchased and cut new targets (squares, diamonds and Louisiana State shapes) and had them hung in time for Friday. We had plenty of campers to keep the campfire going through the chilly wet weekend. Friday side matches, long range and speed matches were done under cover from the showers. Main matches had no rain and sun to warm the temps. At the Saturday night banquet, the dinner was excellent and every shooter went home with a prize. For the raffles, a local shooter (Sassy Schoolmarm) won the real C-Sharps 45-70 Buffalo Rifle and a visiting shooter (Sharpeye) won a complete Dillon 650 and a coupon for a Rugged Gear gun cart. Another shooter won a complete 1858 BP pistol kit. At Sunday awards, all first place winners went home with flashy nickle plated buckles and engraved mugs for 2nd and 3rd. Duke City Deadeye was top Cowboy with Macon A. Longshot just 1 sec behind him, followed by Dakota Steele. Diamond Lily was Top Cowgirl and we had plenty of clean match awards also. For Side Matches, genuine Morgan Silver dollar coins dated from the 1880s were given to the top inspirational Cowboy (Macon A. Longshot) and the top inspirational Cowgirl (Dixie Deadeye) not just for times or scores but for their tenacity. We'll do this again next year. 2018 Hangin: Great stages with new targets, rebuilt stages from the 2016 floods, all hot meals included, awesome guns and raffle prizes, BUT, a truly honorable memoriam for our pard that passed, Parson Delacroix, who continues to be missed at every match, and the camaraderie of 44 of the best cowboys & cowgirls to ever walk this earth! See yall next year! Dusty Sometimes Match Director

    Whats' the Call???

    Just to help me think this one through, I know a Shooter can only get one P, but technically is it a 2nd P when the Shooter loaded the 2nd Pistol with the 6th round at the second Pistol position and then engaged the targets, 5 on 3, with the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th rounds? Is that a 2nd (not assessed) P by loading extra rounds in your pistol and engaging the targets, but only the 1st P is assessed? Just curious and want to learn the entire call exactly and correctly as I was the stage writer and Asst Match Director. Dusty

    Please share your ideas for marketing your club and SASS

    Gotta have a good, up to date, easy to understand and informative website. This is how I found my club! I bought a Uberti SAA because I wanted one and then didn't know what to do with it. I Googled about SAAs and first found Fast Draw and then SASS with two nearby clubs. It's truly awesome having two good quality clubs in my area. I can shoot 4 weekends a month or if one match is rained out, I can shoot the next weekend. But a good up to date website is a must. DS

    Gunfighter -Confessions of a Double Cocker

    Last weekend I held a Gunfighter friendly match at my club and shot GF out of curiosity and had a blast. I double cocked while holding low then came back up on target to shoot. It amazed me at how hard it is, with the extra target thought process that's needed. Still, a lot of fun, not sure I'll do it again unless I try FC-GF!

    RE: Mernickle Cotton Canvas Elastic Loop

    I just bought one, to match my Mernickle HP rig I bought last year at EOT and it just arrived. Can't wait to use it this weekend. I'm interested to see how well it works on pulling 4 SG shells at once. Dusty

    ACES Instructions - using SASS Premier Scoring Program

    Thanks for posting this, I was searching for instructions last week. Quick question on versions. There seems to be two current versions, 1.2.1 and 1.2.6. I'm an Android user and can only get 1.2.1. Is 1.2.1 for Droid users and 1.2.6 for Apple users? Thanks, Dusty

    Whiskey advice

    6 months ago I wasn't a whiskey drinker but this past summer I toured the Jameson factory and Guiness Brewhouse in Dublin, Ireland while on an assignment. At the end of the tour, they give you a complimentary Jameson drink with ginger ale. I'm hooked and most nights before bed I enjoy my Jameson & ginger ale as I wind down.

    Anyone use a full buckhorn sight?

    I love my full buckhorn sight on my rifle. Coupled with a big brass front sight, I have it sighed in so that all I have to do is quickly put the target inside the buckhorn and pull the trigger.
