GRAND ARMY OF THE FRONTIER ILLINOIS MUSTER

The day started a bit cloudy and cool, but ended sunny and warm. Fourteen troopers were present for the first Illinois State Muster held at the Good Guys Posse Dry Gulch Ranch Range in Winnebago, IL. Last Cigar and Sierra Hombre presented the colors and lead the formation in the pledge of allegiance. Last Cigar, our resident historian, gave a brief overview of Illinois role in the Civil war. Last Cigar also brought the colors, two 34 star American flags and the regimental colors of the 31st Illinois Infantry. He had several ancestors who fought with the regiment. T.K. Sackett brought his period cannon for display. We shot five stages that followed the theme of “Gen. U.S. Grant Fought Here”, with emphasis placed on the Illinois Regiments place in history. The first four stages honored four Illinois troopers who were awarded the Medal of Honor, the fifth stage honored the leadership of General U.S. Grant.

I had a lot of fun at the muster. First time shooting the Krag, forgot about the cutoff lever. So first stage I dumped the magazine & single loaded.

One of the single shots was a Sharps Percussion Carbine with paper cartridges.

I will be trying to aquire a Trapdoor and a Krag this year for the GAF Muster in October. I don't reload, so I will need to buy some ammo for both rifles. Hopefully I will have them by October.

I also received a separate report from TK Sackett.  Sounds like it was a great shoot. 

TK Sackett asked me to come out this year but my daughter was graduating from college so I had to decline.
