Trap:

I'm moving your information to the top to make it easier for folks to respond to. Thanks for taking this on. I'll be in touch.

Original Post: I am looking at putting on a TAPS event. The first thing that has to be done is to set a date. The KVC is putting on the GAF grand muster the first week in Oct. so that is out. I am looking at either the wknd of Sept 22 or 29. The KVC will also sponsor the event so the event will have insurance. If you are at least 50% sure you will be able to make the event, let me know which of the two dates would be best for your schedule. This would be a Thur. eve to Sun. timeframe.

Forgive me, but what is TAPS?

What is KVC?

And what is GAF?

Thanks.

I mentioned this on another thread, but should probably reply here, as well. Barring something major, I'll be there. Any of the dates mentioned so far works for me.

You can.  I hope to attend but do not have much hope as we have a whole bunch of grand babies due about that time.

  Since there is no time factor, Henrys and Spencers are fine.

The larger the variety of firearms, the better. Spencers need to be in original calibers, though. No 44-40s or 45 S&W or 44 Russian, etc. Henrys need to be in .44 or larger calibers, to be as close to the original as possible. Black powder or black powder substitutes only.

I'm sure going to try and be there!  This sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun.  Hope we can get quite a few of our group there!  Will probably bring a Henry and a percussion revolver.

  To get some conversation about this going; Who is planning on coming to this event, and what are you planning on shooting.

Barring something very major, I'll be there, and I'm really looking forward to it. Over the winter I've been slowly bringing my gear -- clothing and firearms -- out of the mountain man era and into a later period. I'll be shooting a .50 caliber percussion Tennessee rifle and a '51 Colt Navy.

I'd been thinking about doing an 1858 Eastern Kansas buffalo hunter character, but my wife and I used to portray an 1830s Southwestern couple, she with an emphasis on being a former Comanche child captive. It wouldn't be hard to bump that up to an 1840s Bent's Fort hunter/trader, although I'd have to give up my Navy to do it properly.

At any rate, this is going to be fun, and it's going to be great to finally meet some of you face-to-face, too.

What day would the shooting me on? 20th is a thursday.   Depending on my school schedule, I could maybe make saturday the 22nd.
Oh, and do you know the distance on the targets?  I have a henry, but also another 1860 colt with a shoulder stock.  Probably bring them all.

  You could easily shoot through on Sat. Distances will vary widely but mostly under 100 yds.

Hey, Trap!  Will be getting my registration fee to you within the next week or so for our shoot in September.  Sure hope a number of the guys and gals can make it for the camp and shoot!

Caleb, et al, I've been rethinking my persona for this shoot, and I may be going for the earlier part of our time period, as you were discussing, Caleb.  Still working on getting a Paterson.  I may very well wind up coming as a Taos/Bent's Fort trapper or trader, armed with a Paterson and some type of muzzleloading rifle or trade gun.  Any way I do decide, I'm excited about getting to finally do this!

Look forward to hearing from the rest of you guys!

Sounds good, Jake. I'm going to be in Colorado next week, and I hope to talk to the folks at Bents Fort about doing a Plainsmen encampment there at some future date.

I'm also going to be talking to one of the descendants of the Bents, as well. She's supposed to be very knowledgeable about the Santa Fe Trail. I'm looking forward to that.

I'll be sending my registration in after the 4th of July. I should know by then if my wife will be able to come with me.

I think that Trap has one registration so far.

I'll be sending my registration in by the end of this week. I'd held off to see if my wife could attend, but she isn't going to be able to make it this year, so it'll be just me. Looking forward to it.

  I have a working computer again and the NCOWS national is over. I now have time to devote to the TAPS encampment. We have two official entries so far. I will update this as needed.   jt

I'm hoping to get out there, but it'll be around the 1st of September before I'll know for sure.  Spencer and a Navy Colt probably.  Though I'd love to find a JP Murray Carbine.

As much as I would like to come, I will not be able to make the encampment this Fall!  Things have just not worked out for it to happen.  I look forward to getting feedback from the guys who can make it!

Best Regards,
Jake

I am still trying to make this work, but I have been traveling since Mid-July and think I will be home just in time to start back to school.  Have not even been able to make an outdoor range to do the summer rifle shoot. Angry   Maybe I will win Powerball and show up in a buffalo hide Teepee, if that happens bring an umbrella as that would be around the time pigs are flying south for the winter.
