    Sounds pre-1939 to me, go for it - just get up your local crew and see how it plays out.

    Well, I went ahead and joined even though I'm about 10 hours from the nearest caper. I got the clothes and the guns. Unfortunately, right now I don't have the time to drive 20 hours round trip or organize a local group but maybe in the near future? Couldn't pass up getting in at the beginning.

    Levallois, for some reason the look you've assembled in your av reminds me of Philip Seymour Hoffman in Charlie Wilson's War. Apt, that a sort with a roguish look would take up a roguish sport... (For the record, it's a Good Thing being a bit of a renegade IMO.)

    Diamondback,

    Roguish? That's the nicest thing anyone has said about me for a long while now. Thanks! For example, I was recently described by someone in my office that I don't know personally and vice-versa (think a big office) - as "that salt and peppered headed gentleman who goes to the snack machine all the time." My wife thought it was the funniest thing she'd heard in weeks. I'll take roguish anyday.

    The Copicut Zooters had a match in Massachusetts last weekend. Photos to be posted on the AZSA website soon.

    ...Really? I never actually played cowboys and Indians as a kid, I don't think. I liked them but it wasn't a thing in the neighborhood.

    We always played cops-and-robbers or soldiers or gangsters or some sort of superhero/action game, Batman/Ninja Turtles, which is to say cops-and-robbers with nunchuks. Maybe that's 'cause we were city kids?

    I think shooting sports like this (I had really wanted to get into Cowboy Action shooting but this looks like the cat's pajamas too) are some of what I'll miss most about leaving the US next year.
    All travellers must visit wardrobe before departure. And that goes for you especially Trevor. You've created a hell of a stink back in 2010 wearing those bloody silly goggles of yours and that hoodie. - Smithy

    And I can't figure out their gun licenses, especially if you don't have citizenship, and you can't have a pump shotgun or a lot of the handgun calibers you see in American SAS.

    You can have a SxS though I think.

    You're much much younger than I my dear.

    We also played a lot of "cops-n-robbers",....back when you could even play like that at school during recess........

    Several of my best friends and I met for the first time at the local SASS shoots, and we will remain friends for many years, whether we shoot or not.
    Perhaps something will work out for you in the future. I hope so.
