    Zootshooting

    For those who enjoy shooting sports, this is an offshoot of the SASS guys, called Zootshooting, it uses 1920 to 1970 guns for the competition. Here's a video of it:

    LOL, I thoroughly enjoyed that video. Watching everyone run around gangster style was quite entertaining.

    Though, aren't Tommy Guns illegal? Fun to watch nevertheless.

    Thank you for sharing!

    The whole "Zoot-suit" thing was absolutely ridiculous, but those were some nice fiirearms, and those guys really knew how to use them.

    They're not illegal to own. They're just taxed and regulated.

    I agree, Zootshooting is a neat idea. I hope to see them get more historically accurate with the clothes, too.

    Damn that looks fun! Wish I had a local group out here!
    "His modest resources meant that he could dress no more than reasonably well, but he did so with a kind of faded elegance that ignored the dictates of fashion... the overall effect was of someone frozen in time, indifferent to the new fashions of the agitated age he was living through. The truth is that he took pleasure in this, for obscure reasons that perhaps even he could not have explained."

    That is amazing. A combination of dress sense and firearms proficiency to which I can aspire.
    Mostly hat, but the few cattle I do have are of substantial quality.

    The price of a Thompson would be painful, not to mention feeding it!

    That is pretty cool. But some better clothes and music would be even better. I guess we all have to deal with the difference between our conception if the era and popular interpretation.
