View Full Version : Afraid I may get sucked into this CAS thing

Hi Bill,(or should I say Howdy http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/smile.gif)
Well the title pretty much says it all. where can I find out more about it? I have read a few articles about it (CAS) and it looks like a blast (pun kinda intended). I guess the biggest question is where? I live in NE Ohio, and I've asked around at the local gun shops, they look at me like a Clint Eastwood wannabe.

Howdy Hal,

Nothing wrong with a Clint Eastwood wannabe,but you do need a clever alias,
unlike the Man with No Name.http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/smile.gif

There are five clubs in Ohio,and a bunch in PA. Chances are one or two are close
enough to make it an easy drive for you.
<a href= > CAS City </a> Check this page for a listing of clubs in your area. If you don't see one near you,let me know and I'll send you a listing of the clubs provided by the Single Action Shooting Society. Find a club near you and go watch a match. You'll find friendly folks who are more than willing to show you their guns and fill you in on CAS.
The CAS City page will also answer a bunch of the questions you might have,or just ask them here,and you'll get the info you need.

Thanks for the info. I'll check into it. I already see there is one location about 4 miles from home http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/smile.gif , now all I gotta do is come up with the guns and the dud's, and a name of course.

Rich: hehe Well, I'm 46,blind in one eye, have about 70% hearing loss in one ear,have arthritis so bad I have to get up at 3:00AM so I can type by 8:00AM and am a superb physical specimine for a 98 year old http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/wink.gif so I guess a name won't be too hard to find. Something like "Lucky Hal" http://www.thefiringline.com/ubb/smile.gif
