I just checked in before hitting the old bedroll. It is 1:30 am here and I find I have actually won something.

Thank You Ashley and Marshal'ette. Thanks to Ruger. Thanks so much.

WOOHOO is right. 

Now me and that crusty ol' Forty Rod can look like the Bobbsy Twins next time we meet up.  ;D

Marshal'ette, I will send you a PM with the info.

Ok.. I have a small announcement to make.. Forty Rod just sent me a note and explained in very funny detail why he can't wear pre-made and pre-sized shirts. he had to decline on taking it and ask that I pick another name..
So I just did.. I did just like Ashley did.. I stirred and I stirred those folded up names...   and I picked.

The winner of the Ruger shirt is :

Congratulations Rick.

Since I retired I almost never wear a shirt.  Hell, I don't even wear pants unless I'm goin' to town.

Oh my, did you have to paint that image? I'll have trouble sleeping, keeping my food down and my
general health is now failing.
What you really don't want to mention is wearing that yellow moo moo around the house with the
bunny slippers   ;D ;D ;D
Seriously, though. That is so cowboy of you to give up for someone else a shirt you could have easily
made some kind of use of. You are a gentleman sir, I mean it.  :)

Bring back the Old Army!!  I have coveted a pair of them short barreled Ruger Old Armies in SS ever since I saw Howdy's. Beautiful and reliable revolvers, iff'n you remember to put bullets in them;D

In 1993, when CAS and I were younger than we are now, and the Vaquero had just showed up on the market, I decided that it was the game for me, so my dear old dad, rest his soul, and I went out to the local gun store, and I bought myself a Vaquero. It was a polished stainless beauty with a 7 1/2" barrel, and I decided that I was most likely the fastest gun alive! I bought a cheesy rig, and went plinking a couple of times. Then, sadly, life got in the way, the Vaquero went in the drawer, and didn't think much about it for most of the rest of the decade.

In 2001 the time had finally come for me to start shooting some steel with that dear old revolver, so I hauled her out of the drawer again. By this time I had bought a companion for her and my father-in-law, Martin Riley, leatherworker extraordinaire, had provided me with a gorgeous, silver mounted, two-gun rig. I looked good. No one knew then that I was about as slow as molasses in the winter. I approached the line and when the buzzer sounded, I drew. Every single time I cocked that first Vaquero, the timing missed and the cylinder ended up halfway between the next two chambers! It was a nightmare. The revolver would cycle adequately when plinking, and taking my time to cycle it successfully, but, when cocked aggressively, it would absolutely not work.

So, nine years after I bought the original revolver, I packed it up and shipped it back to Ruger. Within a week and a half, they shipped it back to me, and it was pristine! The put a new cylinder in it, marked with compatible numbers and sent it back. Best customer service EVER!
You know what I think? I think there's just a couple of guys up there, and I think this asshole's one of 'em!

Many thanks to you, Marshal'ette, CAS City, and last, but definitely not least, Ruger!!  ;)

I know you do  ;D

OK, I had Heidi's digital camera and trying to take pictures at a monthly up north at Murrieta Posse shoot. I wanted to get as many shooters as I could, since a pard called Sauerkraut had a website and could post pics on it. I was roaming around to the other posses and got back to mine and someone, probably Champaign Charlie, tells me it is my time to shoot. I grab my shotgun and rifle and head for the loading table, where with all the confidence in the world, I load my rifle and cap my Ruger Old Armies. I am gonna blaze this stage, if I can only remember the scenario. My turn to shoot and I remember it was Black Jack Traven timing. Shooter ready? Yup answers I. Standby! Beep! I yank my first hogleg and it goes poof, piff, piff. I yank number two and again, poof, piff, piff. Yup, I had forgotten something. Like to put some powder and ball in the chambers of both guns. DUH! Well, I slunk over to the unloading table and luckily no one got hurt. I say that because, the whole danged posse was in contortions and holding their sides from laughing so much. Some where even rolling in the dirt. Now you can laugh too. If you laugh too much, then I will have to give you a payback though. So, don't tell anyone about this or I will be the laughing stock at every match I go to from now on. Whats that you say? I already am the laughing stock anyway. ;D ;D ;D
BJT gave me a reshoot, since nothing went down range except my pride and dignity.  ;D
Happy Now?

Not to poke fun, but I guess there is a lot to be said for conversions.   ;)  At least it was just a match and not a intruder standing over your bed at 3 in the AM!

The best part of the whole thing was that Howdy cycled through all ten shots, just like he was blastin' away at steel. It sort of reminded me of that scene at the end of The Outlaw Josie Wales when he is finaly face to face with Red Legs and he is going through all his revolvers to find one that is loaded, only a bit different. Nonetheless, when the stage was finished, he holstered up, turned to the onlooking posse and said, "I am soooooo embarrassed!"

Truly, a classic in the annals of CAS.

It's OK Howdy.  My wife, Lilly, inherited an old Mouser .30-06 that was equiped with a scope.  We finaly picked up a box of ammo for it and headed to the free outdoor range.  Me being an open sight guy and liking the feel of bolt action, cracked off three shots before realizing that there was a large amount of blood spouting from my forehead.  Just as Lil informed me that I had brained myself with the scope, I heard someone say that I'd be the laughing stock of any hunting party.  I looked his way and it was an old fella in a wheel chair with one of them pee bags attatched to himself.  Needless to say, I swallowed that one and still proudly carry a decent scar above my left eye.

Just realized what day it was.  Had my mind on that magic bowl ever since.  If it means anything of a difference, I lost all my shirts in a terrible fire cause I was busy saving my Ruger (her name is Daisy).  It's snowing here and awfull cold--sure could use something to keep the ice sickles off my chest.

All of the above is complete BS, but I figgured I'd keep tryin.
