SASS equipment

I played hell trying to find all that I needed for CAS. wanted it all in the same cal but had no luck. Then an email from the local club leader about some extra guns he had for sale
So for 1500.00 i got me:
twin ruger NM blackhawks in .357
Rossi 92 in .357 with slick work done already for CAS.
Norinco 12ga coach gun with twin hammers.
double holster rig that only fits my daughter.
Approx 120 rnds of reloaded 38spcl.
The folks i'm going to be shootin with are very friendly and really
enjoy recruiting. Now all I need is a belt for the holsters in size 52
and all necessary reloading gear

you can buy a 3" leather tool belt type deal, usually runs about $30, from what I've seen, or make one, which may cost more, but you could make and stain it as you wish.

Are those 50th Anniversary Flattops? Those are my favorites; wish I'd bought a pair back when CDNN was blowing them out for $369. Now it's hard to find a used one for much under $450.

I'd say you did well, all things considered.

You are going to want shotshell loops in your belt or bandoleer. It's hard to shoot the shotgun fast when you are fumbling for reloads in your pocket.
Most stages require a shotgun reload or two and in anycase, the shotgun is staged empty.

That is sweet, and you got a good deal. Everything you got is perfect for your intended purpose.

IdahoMike will hook you up with any belt and any loops you might need.
He's the man, when it comes to things made of leather.

finally got em out to the range this weekend. need to adjust the rear sights to my liking on the rugers. The sight picture on the rossi 92 is weird and is going to take some getting used to. Of course the street howitzer is just fun as hell!!
do need a leather belt though. I'll see what touch of yellow has to offer. I'm a big boy so I need extra leather on my belt

It only costs about $20 or so to get a replacement flat top rear sight, assuming that there is a full buckhorn on it now. Mark
