Cowboy Action - SASS?

Recommended Posts

Howdy from Texas.  I do BP and cowboy shooting.  I'm visiting my daughter in Succasunna and didn't bring any guns, but I will be back.

 

Just wondering if y'all have SASS or cowboy action shooting matches in NJ, and what the laws are on cap & ball revolvers, and period lever action rifles and shotguns.

Yes, SASS is shot once a month (third Sunday) at Shongum Sportsmens Assn in Mansfield, not far from Succasunna.  However, NJ gun laws are such than quite frankly leave everything in Texas, and just visit with family.  To simplify the issue, unless somebody goes with you to the range, stays with you, and supplies you their equipment, the pitfalls are too great and NJ may end up to be your permanent home.                     

FYI, all NJ firearms are treated the same.  Makes no difference, if it shoots a projectile it's a firearm, including Cap and Ball, even BB guns and pellet guns. Sorry, dude.

Old Bridge R&P is doing its' "Old West Shoot" this Saturday morning.  A paper shoot with black powder, BP cartridge as well as some smokeless.  Six-guns & levers.  .22 LR shooting tree man-on-man competition too.  So come dressed-up & bring ammo & someone is bound to loan you guns that are already dirty :)   It's a little South of where you are & about 1/2 way to Central Jersey Club (GRIZ mentioned) in Jackson.

Nice to see that at least folks can still go to range and have some fun up here.  All we hear in Texas is horror stories.

I appreciate the invite, unfortunately I'm at the mercy of my family's schedule this weekend (this is our first visit).  Also didn't bring any gear, but will put it on the list for next time.

Actually, I'm also a BP guy.  I load my own 45LC and shotshells in BP.  I have a Stoeger Coach, couple of Piettas with cartridge conversions, and a Rossi 92 in 45LC (keeps it simple).  I am Trickster Dick in SASS..

Have fun!

Actually, 4th Sunday of each month.

I wish there was a club around that did a Saturday shoot.

I based my response on the calendar which shows CA on the 14th of July.  I really dont follow it.  That may not be the normal schedule.  I've been thinking of trying it as I have the "correct" era firearms to do so.

Ah, the 14th is the Wild Bunch match.  1911s, 1897s or Model 12s, and lever gunz.

    • HAHAHA,  Torx! Hopefully it was not Security Torx! I think anyone who does not work on a German car takes for granted that the majority of americans have never seen Torx bits/heads. I think my first, before buying my Beemers was the Torx head deck screws used by USPSA in CJRPC... I will say, have become a fan of Torx and have 2 or 3 sets of Torx bits... both in security and standard varieties.  You can at times, use regular allen keys for some Torx... or was it the other way around?
    • Thanks for sharing. I am fairly positive Rutgers was involved in the past with other gun policies and proposals. Would be interesting to attend to see if this will be anti violence or anti 2a.
    • Did anyone notice this? Rutgers is getting in on the Anti-2A bandwagon, hosting a seminar where our awesome Gov. Murphy will be the keynote speaker. It's going on Tuesday , April 23rd. They're increasing the brainwashing of students even more.  Liberal indoctrination at it's best of a captive audience. .... This event will introduce the Center on Gun Violence Research to the public, and allow for a broad audience to engage in a conversation about the future of gun violence prevention in NJ and throughout the country. It will begin with a keynote from Governor Phil Murphy followed by a talk from Dr. Stephanie Bonne who will present the state of affairs of gun violence in NJ. " https://gunviolenceresearchcenter.rutgers.edu/preventing-gun-violence-in-nj/ And here's the newly formed leaders: Stephanie Bonne, an assistant professor of trauma and critical care surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, has become one of the nation’s leading voices on taking a public health approach to prevent gun violence. Her experience at University Hospital drove Bonne to take the lead last year on New Jersey Medical School’s winning application when Gov. Phil Murphy announced that the state was taking proposals to create a $2-million center for gun violence research, a role that has helped put her in the national spotlight. Bonne will be a keynote speaker at the inaugural conference of the New Jersey Center on Gun Violence Research on April 23. https://news.rutgers.edu/preventing-gun-violence-new-jersey/20190418#.XL5uJy-ZO7A    
    • That was a FFL about 5 years ago. Very sporadic hours back then. Hopefully better now...
