Howdy All,

Well you couldn’t believe it was the middle of June with these temps and breeze but sure ain’t complaining either. Is it possible to order this for next Saturday? If you aren’t registered to shoot Smoke, it’s not too late as long as you are a SASS member in good standing, other words, paid up. We will be shooting the Smoke On The Mattaponi next Saturday. Even if you aren’t registered to shoot this, please help us by supporting Reb’s Bullets. Our main match sponsor.

Congrats to Dakota Rambler as our Overall Match Winner. Congrats to Cotton Connie, Flatboat Bob, Jackass Flats, Kuba Kid, Major B. S. Walker, and Potter County Kid for shooting CAS.

We wish all of you, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!

Hope to see y’all next Saturday at the Smoke match.

Mattaponi Sundowners match for 6-19-22

WPGC Double Action: DA Results

We had a most unusual day for a DA match. We did indeed hold the match using the same guns we brought for the steel match. Unfortunately, only 4 people came, so setting up the steel didn’t seem practical, especially with the heat. Instead, we went to plan B. The shooters seemed to enjoy the match and even asked that we do it again. I am going to need to solve some problems before next month. Two of the four reported that they didn’t receive emails using the address above. I will confirm their addresses and make sure they are on the list. We will likely start requesting a RSVP before committing to the match. We might even continue to shoot “Plan B”. We scored the match before we left and the category winners know who they were. Stay tuned. 


WPGC Double Action: DA

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. 

We will be having our monthly DA match on Thursday, June 9. The format will be the same as always with 6 Main Frame Revolver stages, one of which will include a J-Frame, a J-Frame stage and a 1911 stage. Please come early and help with set up. 
Gates will open at 8:30 and the match will begin at 10:00. If you need to contact me my email is: b4bluegrass@aol.com

Mattaponi Sundowners: Smoke On The Mattaponi

Howdy All,

Well it’s only a week away from the Smoke On The Mattaponi deadline for signing up. You are more than welcome to come shoot, if you miss the deadline, but you must shoot in an established category or you risk not getting an award.

Attached is the shooter application, sponsorship application and who’s coming list. If you would like to sponsor we will gladly accept such a gift.

We will be having a Plainsman stage. If you would like to shoot this please let us know.  You can reference the SASS handbook for more information on that. Potter will be furnishing the guns and rifle ammo for this stage.

We are looking forward to the match and to seeing everyone there for a fun day of smoke.
