This one of the monthly matchs that I have shot at. Its before I got me some cowboy dud's lol. But as you can see the dress is mainly what I already had. I have had the boots for several years before I ever thought about shooting in Cowboy Action shooting. Its pretty easy to start out, its once it gets in your blood that makes it hard to stop. I am going to there this Monday for a week day match not many folks show up there but it works better for me to shoot during the week as I don't get that many weekends off.
Sometime back in another forum deputy 125 shared a mounted sass event, the question was raised as to what they shoot. I found out that its a specail black powder blank that is loaded for the rider they don't roll their own. I read over some of the requirements aw don't think I'll be doing the mounted thing any time soon lol.

somethin' about a cross-draw SA rig that thrills my soul....one day, I'm gonna find my Vaquero 4 5/8" .44 Mag SS.....and I'm gonna spend what it takes to get a cartridge-studded belt...and I'm gonna wear that rig to bed and to church and to the ball park....may even get me a hat.....it's the cowboy in my soul......

I am a member of SASS at large I don't belong to any one culb at this time. This match was shot at Oakwood Texas, which was also where the state match was helded. I shoot the 49er class right now still working on my shooting skills so I can move up to classic cowboy. It will be a while before I get to there as I need to save up and buy a hammer shot gun of course a vest and wrist cuff's those no problem but the shotgun may take a while. lol

Classic Cowboy would be cool, but then I couldn’t use a Blackhawk or .38s.
There is some pretty tough competition around here in Classic category too!
One is Black Tom and another is Deadman Walking who became a friend and has a great collection of firearms. He even has a set of S&Ws in 44Russian from around 1880.
I would add a picture of them but this is your post and I wouldn't impose. I don't belong to a club either but I am thinkin about joinin up with the outfit at Hooten.
Send more pics, Please!

Drumer if you want to post a picture or two please feel free to do so. I don't believe we're like that here. At least I am not, I am sure we all would love to see the pictures. I know I would for sure.

Thanks for the invite. OK here is a picture I found on the net with me on the left and Deadman Walking in the background on the right next to the Port-O-Let. Also a picture I took of Deadman Walking and one with his S&W ‘Model 3’ in 44-Russian. And a picture of the 07 Ladies Kentucky State Overall Champeen. See for Overall Champeen, you get a pair of overalls for the prize! She is also wearing an End Of Trail buckle at her back she got for winning a few classes there. For those that do not know, End Of Trail is like the World Series of Single Action Shooting Society shootouts.
