Some subjects to come.
Before I list any, I must explain that I have nearly always been a Western Martial Artist with Musket, Pistol, rifle, Bow, and experimental spears.
I am still trying to get moving witht he "SASS" crowd, who specialize in shooting interactive targets with "cowboy" era guns.
Although there is no 'rule' on the point it is clear that a SASS shooter;s 'rig' would consist of 2 Single action Revolver-preferably sturdy, smooth and chambered for the same caliber as a contemporary Lever or pump action rifle and a double barrle shotgun.
Courses vary from club to club, but at no time is the muzzle of any weapon allowed to go past a line running 180 degrees parrallel to the 'axis' of the shooters hips as he is squared off to the target.
I have only observed this rapidly growing sport, so it will be a while before I can seriously attempt to pass on valuable tips.
some things, are, however, unavoidable.
Pretty much in Mass., only the Ruger Old and new Vacquero will be available new. There are several Winchester and Winchester clones ('73, '92 and 1866) and Clone of the the Colt 'Pump' pistol calibers.
More on this later.
