I went out to the shooting range where I'm a member, the Otto Road Range, this morning to do some plinking with my 270 and 30-06 and forgot that the 4th of July Hell On Wheels SASS competition was going on.
The bays are all closed except for competition so I hung around a while to watch some of the shooting. Fun to see everybody dressed up in their cowboy and cowgirl outfits and shooting old style revolvers, rifles, and shotguns.
A while back the SASS started including a 1911 "Wild Bunch" competition which added another level of fun to the events.
If any of ya'll are interested in getting into Cowboy Action or Wild Bunch shooting here's a link to the SASS.

The following was announced in the July edition of Cowboy Chronicle:

Effective October 1, 2020, the current SASS Wild Bunch Board of Directors — many of whom are the founders of the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting and SASS — will step down from their roles within the organization. Judge Roy Bean (SASS #1), Tex (SASS #4), Cat Ballou (SASS #55), Hipshot (SASS #7), Wild Shot (SASS #51), and Mrs.Slick Shot (SASS #691) will no longer play a role in the operations of SASS.

After nearly 40 years of dedication and hard work, they are poised to enjoy their retirement and enjoy their families, their friends, and their future as SASS members and Cowboy Action Shooters.

Their retirement creates the opportunity to form a new SASS Board from within the membership, comprised of SASS members who possess the talents, commitment, and desire to shape the future of the sport and the organization.

In the coming weeks and months leading up to the October 1 transition date, fundamental shifts in operations will occur in an effort to streamline membership benefits and operations, enhance SASS club experiences, and to garner key information from within our membership ranks to solidify the future business model for SASS.

They use those in 'Zoot Shooting' (really) - that 'sport' requires a fedora...
That looks like as much fun as the Cowboy Action competition, giggles galore! Unfortunately I don't have a Thompson and my 1907 Savage .32acp uses a double stack mag while they specify single stack mags only. I do have a couple shotguns, including a M12 Winchester that qualify though. Need more toys! :)

"The Winchester Model ’12 pump in 12 gauge is also allowed. If using a Model ’12 see the extra safety procedure required.

The extra safety procedure is on page 11 and 17 of the Wild Bunch™ Action Shooting Handbook, and is quoted as follows: “Shooters using the Model ’12 hotgun must follow this additional safety procedure: Under the direct supervision of the TO/CRO on the firing line, they must point the muzzle in a safe direction and pull the trigger. If the hammer falls, SDQ. Failure to follow this procedure is a SDQ. It is the shooter’s responsibility to ensure this procedure is followed before beginning the course of ire.” Of course, SDQ means stage disqualification. "

Did a search and found the above any Wild Bunch shooters have any info? I thought the old Mod 12 was a safe to use shotgun.
