    Zootshooters in

    In Duster (the seated gent)'s own words - Yesterday we held the first Zootshooters event east of the Mississippi. A group of us shooters from Mass and R.I put on a match. We had four Capers (Stages). It was a two gun match. Pistol or revolver typical of the 20's-30's. Thompson or another semi-auto or that era, or pistol cartridge lever gun. We also had one Caper with a snubby as a third gun.

    If y'all really wanted to be 'period' you'd only feed that Choppa with XX sticks or drums--the XXX (30-round) only came to be during WWII to replace the unreliable-in-the-field drums.

    Hahahaha, wonderful.

    Funny thing is that I had my Pandora station on 'When Fools Rush In' right before I started the video, so that freaked me out a little bit.

    Nice to see one of the gentlemen has a fully automatic Thompson, even if it looks to be an M1A1, which is technically an anachronism.

    Interesting new hobby/sport - and not any more silly than the game of golf IMHO. It will be interesting to see how it evolves. The cowboy action folks started out small and what's their membership now - close to 100,000?

    Quite welcome, ma'am--if you're really into the complications of "Rock & Roll" you might check out MachineGunBoards.com (tell 'em "nedry" sent ya). As for the sig, it's a chopped-down version of one I lifted from another guy on the gunboards--IIRC, the guy I lifted it from was a retired sniper, who every few weeks alternated between that and "Sniper Motto: Reach Out And Touch Someone"...
    I have a mate in TX who has a licence to manufacture firearms for the Armed Forces. Gatling guns last time I visited. Compulsive collector with more items than he can keep track of. Nice guy though, he gave me a new Ruger 380 when I was there, but I had to decline - couldn't get it home. He's building some 50 cal rifles at the moment for his own amusement and to give to some buddies. "Gun control means never having to say, I missed you"

    That was wonderful!
    Not only did I enjoy the shooting, firearms, and clothing, but I was thrilled that there was a female in on it, too!

    Some of the biggest growth in the shooting sports has been among women.

    A welcome change, I've spent wayyyyy too much time hanging out with guys like Dback and Story in my shooting career.

    That looks like fun, I always wanted to do something similar but with Carbines and Garands. Why should the Cowboy Action shooters have all the fun ? I guess it would be PIC with the targets I guess.

    Is he using the WWII UK .55 Boys AT rifles as a building base?

    More years than I care to remember ago, I apprenticed with a guy that was converted several to .50 cal., with heavy barrels we lathed down to Boys profiles. I rolled the cartridges as carefully as Cuban cigars. They were used as baseline test weapons, vs. the Barrett (now seen in places like Iraq and A-stan).

    Oh, you're hilarious.
