Welcome Capt. Augustus
I've heard good things about the .45 LC & I in fact own a single action Target Model Uberti Revolving Carbine (16" barrel) in .45 LC & really like it........it will make short work of a hog or whitetail within 50 yards.
I own a 16" Rossi Puma in .44 Mag which will do anything the .45 LC model will do & I dare say more.
If I see a cheap deal on a 16" barrel Rossi Puma 92 sans the safety .45 LC I'll probably grab it & blame the guys on the Rossi forum for talking me into it.
I'm situated a long way from a range where they hold SASS competitions so I don't see me becoming a SASS member anytime soon.
SASS seems to be a shooting discipline that is sweeping the country and a couple of friends of mine drive lots of miles to attend the SASS shoots.
I kinda think SASS creates an opportunity for them to get away from "the old ball & chain" for a day or so & toss back a few cold ones........nuthin wrong with that in moderation
