SASS bowling pin race gun (?)

Just got an email from DAMIPHINO about his latest inspiration, a SASS bowling pin race gun. Now I know it's been a long Winter and it's been really cold in Montana, but still, sometimes I worry about him.

Here's his email:

Blog Inspirations

I usually try to read Mr. C's blog daily and every now and then I get rewarded with a really bright idea.

Here's the latest:

In a recent post Mr. C. was talking about shooting his Taurus in the speed pin shoot and how he found that after watching SASS shooters shooting single action he found that he could shoot his Tarus quite quickly in single action useing the SASS techniques. Then in the next post he gave information on mounting a Red Dot to his S&W 422.

Well since I'm mostly a SASS and Fast Draw shooter the inspiration struck with a vengance. The pictures show the necessary equipment and the resulting SASS bowling pin race gun.

You carefully clamp the Tongue depressor stick in the mounting rail on the Red Dot and then run a couple of narrow strips of genuine Duct Tape over the stick to fasten the scope to the top of the barrel.

The next step requires great care in order to get the best stability and be able to zero in the scope. Loosely tape the bottom of two pairs of sticks together to form two V's. Slide the V's up past the ejector rod housing and pinch the top of the V together hard enough to secure the Red Dot in place, run a strip of tape around the top to keep them in position. And TAA DAA!

The only thing left is to get the Period Correct rule relaxed a bit since Duct Tape isn't quite period correct.

Have Fun,


I guess if he hasn't managed to kill himself so far, I really shouldn't worry too much.........

At the very least he should make Red Green proud!

Well, I guess DAMIPHINO pretty much "hammered" your single-action hammer-fanning in the Pin Shoot.

And how about that load of SASS? SASS Bowling Pin Race Gun!!!!

You can't keep the sass out of this gunblog, can you?

With what looks like around 200 minutes of extra elevation built into his scope mount he's either shooting long range or about 150 fps.
