Keep in mind that if you are going to do Mounted Shooting you MUST use a 45 colt. It is not like SASS where you can use other calibers.

Also Buds Discount guns is a great place to get guns at a good price. Free shipping and all. Only thing is you will have to pay the FFL but that is usually less then what the tax would be.

Ok, thanks for the info. I thought 45 was needed but wasn't sure. Also am I correct in that you need a pair like for SASS? I will probably take up the SASS stuff before I get into the mounted. However it's going to be a bit before I really take the leap to either the way my schedule and finances are right now with a little one on the way. There is a sass shoot about 20 mins away. The closest mounted shoot is about 3 hours away.

I haven't checked buds discount guns. I've checked cheaper than dirt, some of the local gun shops sites, gun broker , cimmeron, Taylor's and the cowboy guns are kinda hard to come by right now. Well for a decent price anyway.

SASS is a bit different they CMS. First you can use any of several calibers. From a 38/357 to a 45 colt. Rifles must be a hand gun caliber and then you need a shotgun. All must be period originals or reproductions. Also you need a gun rig and an ammo rig. Your ammo rig can be part of your gun rig but most do not do it that way. They use 2. Also you might want to take up if you do not already reload your ammo. Off the shelf ammo for SASS will most likely be too expensive and most likely not legal. You will also need a gun cart of some type to haul all the guns and ammo around. I shoot 45 colt in SASS in both my hand guns and my rifle so I do not need a second set of guns. I also use a Winchester 1897 12 vs a stage coach although I am thinking about getting one to use. I will say that if you want to give SASS a try just go to a shoot. Chances are there will be someone there that will let you use their guns.

Both are fun and have different components to them. One thing I like about SASS is that I do not have to get the horses around. I can just load up and go. For me there are several SASS affiliates around here with in 30-45 min and there is a new CMS affiliate local to me (With in 5 min). So I can do both with little problems.

Even if you do not or can not shoot go and check them out. It will be fun I am sure.
