Several friends of mine use to do a "White Indian" impression for reenactments and living history events from the F&I Wars into the early Federalist time period. Their impressions were great!
A major aid was adopting a hair style for the native American tribe that had taken then in. Most of these were Eastern tribes, and that hair style could vary greatly. To the point of shaving most of, if not part, the hair off their heads.
I don't recall them dying their hair if it were lightly colored. They weren't playing Native Americans but rather captives raised by the Indians. However, they did use body paint in the style and colors for that tribe. All of this was well documented.
My best.

Thanks Blair...wish I'd have thought about this before the dye job!

Scotty, as for C&B pistols, how about a Remington with spare cylinders?  I'm considering this route, but may need a pack mule for the spare cylinders if my revolver shooting doesn't improve over last muster!

Just a passing observation...
Hurricane, if it is the brew canned in "By God, Texas!", has 8% good stuff in it over the normal, or as some say, regular brewskies 3%. Hurricane also is the same or near-same recipe for what us oldsters from the 60's (read last century) called malt liquor, the small can with a Bull on it. Hurricane has a solid flavor and is enjoyed from the Gulf Coast up North through the Corn Belt here in Ioway. It has taken a while for it to become as popular as the old brands from the 60's but local consumers have been buying multiple cases to keep the economy going upward, so far so good! It takes a real positive attitude to consume a case a week but somebody has to do it, so there!
Congrats on your new job Del, I can just see the local grandmas stopping in to get a gallon of milk and leaving with a smile and 4 new recipes, HAH!
Best regards and don't drink and drive after a few Hurricanes or you'll be thinking off-road and hollering "Here, hold my beer and watch this!"
'Ol Gabe

No worries about me drinking any more, gave it up years ago, the ICE stuff has been slushed and the slush removed to do the same, old German idea.

Milwaukee's Best Ice  there is reason it's  $.99 ...  it is malodorous ...read stinks .... if one can get by the putrid smell , it is like Schlitz
will leave you with a sick headache ...it is cheap drunk though. 

I haven't seen Hurricane Malt down here ...though I don't really pay that much attention.

 I have friend & ex coworker  , that got into Micro Brewing as a hobby ..now he is has changed his career ...and is a Lager & Ale Distributer for Shipyard and other malts.

Well you could join some of them for Paul Masson brandy and a Tropical Fusion Swisher, 2 shot bottles and a 2 pack of seegars will set you back about $3.25, tax included. Grin

The beard coloring products definitely colored my beard years ago, but the color didn't seem to be one that occurred in nature.


Unfortunately, although my hair is pretty evenly "Salt & Pepper", the beard/mustache is pretty much just salt. If I could get some salt & pepper beard color, it might make me a more believable Foreign Legionnaire. Or 1914 Sailor. Or pretty much anything in uniform. Grin

Troy, I think the Remington would be good with spare cylinders, but would it be as good as SPARE GUNS? Pull a Josie Wales on Red Clouds boys!

Never had mine dyed or permed, never will.   I did get it cut just before the muster, should need it cut before the 2018 one again.

Driving me crazy, needs to grow out a little more so I can tie the back, new job don't allow hats or bandannas. 

Working in a Qwik-Shop in the poor part of town, and loving it, the people are fantastic, almost every color and creed, except few of the Yuppie folks, glad of that.   Been told many times I'm now part of the hood, they all know my name. 

Need to bring you guys something called Milwaukee's Best Ice or the one called Hurricane, must be good stuff, sell lots of it and it's only 99 cents for a 24 Oz can.   


Del,

I've been working in "the hood" for the last 25 years and Malt Liquor in one container or another has always been very popular.  The 40 Oz. bottle of Old English (O E is the most poplar around here but they all come in a "40",  Mickie's, Steel Reserve, Colt 45, St Ides, etc., etc.) is our most popular improvised weapon.  It's simply always at hand whenever our residents feel the need express themselves and didn't bring their Glock.  It's also appropriate for all occasions, from a domestic to a street fight.

Years ago in Whiteclay, the 24 oz. "Double Colt .45" was the drink of choice among the natives.  Seemed to keep them lubed up pretty well!

Colt 45 is still drank by the older ones, the younger tend to go with the others.  Had a very old lady unhappy the other night when we only had one can of Colt 45. Wink

Just remember that when one of the denizens of the hood points his Glock at you demanding the meager contents of the till, give it to him with a smile and don't try to be a hero.  Believe it or not the company will fire you if you interfere with getting him out of your "Stop and Rob" as quickly as possible.  They'll fire you just as quickly if you forget to use the drop safe and end up giving him too much.

Oh I know that, to be truthful the Hood is a poor section but doesn't have that much crime, that's in a different area and we are so busy there, we are not as good of a target as other stores, usually 3-4 customers in there at once. 

Did get hit with a counterfeit bill tonight, who counterfeits $2 bills?  Well someone did.   Roll Eyes

I hope to get my registration off before I die...which could be soon, as Mrs. Red may hurry that along.  Hopefully, she will be understanding as to why I bought an Armi Spencer Carbine in 56-50 on gunbroker.  Of course, most everyone on this forum understands that it was necessary so that I could be period correct for the 2017 Grand Muster....right??  It with my Remington NMA will make for a fine combination for Red Cloud's War impressions!

The General did a fine job of repelling hostiles at the recent Ruckuss at Racoon Forks with his Spencer! (at least at MOST times it was faster than a muzzleloader!)

Mrs. Red's only comment was "I hope it is okay.  I hate buying something without seeing it, first".
I didn't reveal the price to her....I just told her that it was "expensive".  I'll have to ease the reloading supplies on at a later date...will get expensive since I don't cast!

General, Due to a chronological deficiency on my part, I need to be either reminded or reprimanded concerning the disposition of my registration for the up-coming Grand Muster.  Could you please rectify this situation and at the same time give us a listing of those already registered (looking for reprobates in the ranks).

I am going to get the registration in the mail tomorrow. Already have reservation at Wild Life Inn, same as last year.

This year I am going to bow to the inevitable and not signing up for the shooting, just a banquet ticket.
I do plan, though, to bring an odd assortment of firearms to play with while in camp. (I have a front stuffer Plains rifle I've been wanting to demonstrate my ineptitude with . . ., and a Govmnt .45 I'm working up a load using cast lead bullets.)

Got my reservations at Wild Life Inn today.  I think I got the last available room.  Hopefully, I'll get my registration off by the end of the weekend, and there will still be openings for the match.  If not, I'll work in a support role.

There are Several more from whom I have not officially received a registration, but that I am fairly sure are attending. Then there are several more who have expressed interest, but I'm not at all sure they are really all that interested so we could pretty easily be pushing the cutoff mark.
