    Mossberg JM PRO TACTICAL 930.....SOLD

    Had a Mossburg JM PRO when I tried 3 gun (big mistake at my age). Had over $800 in it and didn't have all the improvements that this one has. A REAL STEAL --IMHO. Somebody better jump on this one. Dr. O. R.

    making Henry Big Boy SASS ready???

    My HBB is in 45LC. I have been loading 250 grain rnfp bullets from MO Bullets in the Rossi in 45L and they work well. Read in one of the comments that the truncated shape worked better in the 38/357 Rossi but don't know if that is true for the HBB in 45. When I get it guess I'll have to get a little range time to find out.

    making Henry Big Boy SASS ready???

    Might as well put my 2 cents worth in.... Am in the process of buying a used but almost new HBB from my local gun store that I do a lot of business with. Traded in a very problematic Rossi 92 in 38/357. Had that Rossi to 3 different gunsmiths-they all tried to make it better-the gun just wouldn't cooperate. I have a Rossi 92 in 45LC that runs as fast as I can-no problems. Go figure. I also shoot long range at Parker KS. The HBB will be my long range - pistol caliber rifle. Fitted with a Lyman front sight and a soule rear sight it should be fast enough for that range. : ) Dr. O. R.

    As a piano tuner, I've gotten some strange directions on how to get to someone's house out in the country. One was"turn right at the pasture with the spotted cow in it!"

    Would you, personally, round it up?

    Well I find it interesting that the chapter number is "491", their post office box is "491" and the check number is "491". Too bad they couldn't have "rounded up" to make it $2491.00 !

    New Member and Guest Questions

    Why did I join?....... I had started in 3 gun about 18 months ago and realized that I was too old, too fat and too slow for those guys! So I started looking around for another shooting sport that I could keep up with. Discovered SASS by accident on the Internet and went "Wow, I get to shoot guns AND dress up like a cowboy!" As a kid growing up in the western Era on TV, the clothing requirements just added to the fun. (It didn't hurt that I didn't have to run around like a mad man, either) The toy guns we played with as kids--SA revolvers, lever action rifles, doubled barrel shotguns--we get to shoot for real........fantastic! I visited some local--and not so local--clubs as I was waiting for my new member kit and was thoroughly hooked. My only regret was not finding out about SASS 20 years ago. At 69, there's just a lot fewer years left to enjoy SASS and especially the PEOPLE in SASS. For anyone out there sitting on the fence about joining--hurry up! Time's a'wastin'! You're missin' the fun!

    Tuna? or Tuna fish?

    Or how about pizza pie. (Pizza means 'pie' in Italian, I'm told).

    Badger's Ponder for Today

    Can't STAND the feel of wool against my skin. Especially WET wool. Makes me itch just thinkin' 'bout it! Had to wear it as a kid when it was cold and snowy. Sit in class after recess when we'd all gone out to play and gotten wet. YUCK!

    Happy Winter Solstice

    Happy 47th Anniversary to Warden and Sawmill Mary. Takes a little effort on both your parts to make a marriage work. Seen you two in action-both of you do a good job of it! May you have many more. BTW, 1st wife and I got married on June 6th-D Day! That's another way to remember your anniversary. Dr. O. R. Vet

    participation awards

    I think maybe we need to make more of a distinction here between the words “participation” and “awards”. In my book, you get a participation souvenir for showing up and paying your money. An award is something you earn by achieving something difficult and/or outstanding—whether it is a fireman rescuing a child from a burning building or shooting the quickest time with the fewest mistakes at a match. We all like to take back souvenirs from a match; it shows that we were there and “participated”. That for some, is a big deal. For me, as a first year beginner in CAS, just making an out of state match will be a big deal for me—and I would love to have something tangible to show for it when I get back home. However, I am also realistic enough—and know my age, weight and lack of quickness are all factors—that I will probably never get an award for my shooting ability. Doesn’t mean I don’t have a good time or that I am not competitive. As has already been said, we’re here for the fun and stay for the people—but it doesn’t mean we don’t like to have some kind of acknowledgement of at least being in attendance. That's just MHO.
