I live near you,and have shot at the same club. I'm fairly new to SASS,but have been shooting cowboy guns for years.
Hickory is the ramrod at Tri-County,and you';ll have to see hime about an "indoctrination" before you can actually shoot with the group.Basically, a safety rule review,and a SASS overview.Then he';ll run you through a stage or two to verify your gun handeling skills.That';s how it went for me anyway.
Come on out and have a ball.There are usually plenty of extra firearms avail. to loan a new shooter,and I'm sure there are some guns avail. for sale too.
The SASS website has a classified section with guns and accesories for sale also.
See you there. "Mort"
