Dirt Merchant
SASS # 61422

aka Wayne Taliaferro
Dirt started cowboy shooting in March of 2005 and quickly chose the B-Western category as his favorite. It allows him to dress in a manner which he enjoys and shoot guns. He was a hunter who had been able to fulfill his dreams in hunting - and hunt where most of us could only dream.

Dirt actively supports SASS where ever he can. Pretty much like his picture above, he is always smiling, and welcoming others and willing to help the club as well as the newer shooter.

He quickly became proficient in his shooting and has had the plasure of shooting at local matches as well as many across the country.

As you can see by his accomplishments below, he became a talented cowboy shooter just as he did in his hunting.
