Choosing an Alias

Every SASS member is required to select a shooting alias representative of a character or profession from the Old West or the western film genre. Your alias may not in any way duplicate or easily be confused with any other member's alias. The following guideline should help you in choosing an alias:

Your alias must be printable before a wide audience. No duplications are permitted. If it sounds the same, it is the same. Adding "too," "II," etc., is not acceptable. "Ranger" could become "Texas Ranger" but not "The Ranger." "John Henry Chisum" could be modified to "Jack Chisum" but not "John H. Chisum" or "Jon Henry Chisum." Historical names may not be modified to make them different. "Wyatt Earp" and "Marshal Wyatt Earp" are considered the same. Different spellings of the same alias are considered the same such as Cat and Kat.

Over the years SASS has done its best to keep the alias list unique. In some instances duplicates may have permanently slipped by. The SASS office maintains final approval on all aliases and this search is provided as a convenience to help folks in choosing their own.

The SASS Alias Registry changes daily. Feel free to telephone the SASS office to confirm the availability of your alias choice. Be creative and good luck!
