I never thought of that!  Think of the skirmish run we could do with that thing!

You'll have to change the name to GNF, Grand Navy of the Frontier?

I don't know about Naval campaigns in Nebraska ... but who remembers the amphibious action during the 2007 National Muster in Iowa?   Grin





(I gather they also had this at the 2006 Muster there, but I had to miss that one ...)

Yes ... it was fun!  All the shooting was done offhand from the deck on gongs along the far bank. 

The chap I was with there at the prow was an ex-Marine and joked that this was the first time he had ever done any shooting from a watercraft!

To my knowledge that stage idea was never repeated.

That Muster was unique!

Used to be a SASS annual match in Missouri that featured a similar stage. It was similar to a GAF stage, because it was "engage all the targets with whatever gun you wish". I expect Drydock has shot there too. I was shooting BP, with 2 1860s, a '66 carbine, and double barrel shotgun. When the pistols were empty, I commenced firing with the '66-until the carrier block jammed after about 4-5 rounds.  After that, I can assure you that a double barrel Stevens 311 gets REALLY hot with extensive BP shooting.
