Making a comparison between my Byer-Rolnick Resistol 3X thin ribbon with hand-felted edge

And Jimmy the lid's Stetson thin ribbon with Mode Edge, originally from the rlk collection.

Under their broad definition (dimensions & blocking) some would call these an OR.

Have you ever been to a large SASS shoot? You’d fit right in with the B-western group.

Those cowboy shootouts are pretty serious business and some of the competitors are damn good. Better than the real gunslingers of old ever were. I'm not sure that kind of thing would be allowed in the United Kingdom, I know they have very strict gun control laws.

I used to shoot USPSA 30 years ago and I’ve tried some local unaffiliated three gun shoots, but I gave them up to do to time, expense, and bruised pride. Back in college I shot some bench rest (Hunter class) and had fun doing it. However, SASS is fun even if you’re at bottom of the standings. I don’t like how all the winners are shooting very light load .38 Specials and believe that they should have a “major” power factor requirement for all shoots. I love the atmosphere and the costuming at big SASS shoots. I plan on getting serious about it in retirement…not serious as a competitor, but serious at attending more events.
