If a posse of 3 were to be formally organized and approved, and a year later no additional recruits were to be found, would the posse be sent to Boot Hill?

Not likely.... 3 like minded fellows are 3  (I believe) 3  (or insert # ) more will join. There is a number (10 members) were NCOWS will refund your insurance.
If you've dropped the dime and formally organized, you're good to go.....

The year deal is a per member to at least reach level 1 impression.

Wiser (perhaps not older) heads will correct my error , if any  Smiley

Section 1-3 of the By-Laws in the Tally Book states that there must be 5 after a year to remain active.  I didn't know if there was a provison for an extension.  Or maybe I am misinterpreting?

Rex,

Here's the direct wording on our firearm regulations:
 

As you can see, we limit our approved firearms to the time from of 1865 to 1899.  We don't differentiate between single and double action in competition as long as said revolver has some provenance to the time period.

Regarding semi-autos:  We do not allow them since they do not fit the definition above.  Our Congress would allow a member to petition approval of such a firearm, provided the member could provide credible historic reference that such a firearm was in documented use on the North American Frontier.  To date, no such evidence has been produced.

I would think the C-96 Mauser would qualify, as well as the Browning Model 1900, Steyr Mannlicher 1894 series, Colt Model 1900 and even the P.08 Lugar (both designs began in 1898-99 and the Lugar was adopted by the Swiss army in 1900), and it is an adaptation of the Borchardt 1893 design. I mainly asked because I seemed to remembe a decade or two ago reading the NCOWS rules and conversing via eamil with an NCOWS member/official about 1911's and Lugars and C-96s, DA revolvers and rifles like the 1893/95/96/98 Mauses, Enfields, Krag-Jorgensens, Savage 99s, Winchester and Marlin 94 and 95 models, and Springfield 03's used in side matches and thought at the time that was a great idea. They seem to have gone away from that.

They seem to have gone away from that.

The caveat is:  The arms had to have been manufactured before 1900 and originally chambered for a black-powder cartridge.

I wanted to use a 'broom-handle' my self. Sad

Not quite sure which NCOWS official you would have talked to 2 decades ago. That was before NCOWS was around. NCOWS has never officially considered adopting those arms you mention.

The majority of those arms are also not in documented use during our time period on the American frontier. Double actions of the approved type? Oh yes, we allow them.

Do many of us own and shoot similar arms in other venues? You bet!

Well my memory likely failed me on the time frame (that's been known to happen, they say memory is the second thing to go and I can't remember the first). It was probably more like 10 years ago. Perhaps he was referring to his local chapter, I can't recall (now I sound like Tony Hayworth). DA's of the "approved type" would apparenty be Colt Lightning, Thunderer, 1878 DA, S&W DAs (and H&R, I own a mint H&R DA pocket gun in .38 S&W made in 1878), M&H,and of course the Starr. I'm waiting for the day when Colt or USFA or Uberti or Merwin & Hulbert makes a real DA version of those guns. Probably will be a long wait.

Pablo,

There is not a posse yet.  This is interest in getting one started.  Get in touch with this compadre:

Last summer I sent a Hooplehead's Guide to a guy named Kenny Rogers in Truth-or-Consequences, NM.  I'll see if I can dig up his contact info.

Pablo:
There is a fellow that posted as Harolds over on the Longbranch looking for a club period.  He is in Eastern Colo (Lamar/Springfield).  You all may be able to get together and start a posse.

Good Luck.

The idea of starting a posse appeals to me, at least on the surface.  So while I whittle away the time thinking on this, I have developed a couple questions that I have found no answer too as yet.

1. Dealing with the number of posse members stated: "50% of all members and 100% of the posse officers must be NCOWS members."  Are these full paid members or can it include folks signed up as additional family members, such as spouse?

2. Is there a list of equipment needed, such as targets, timers, flags etc and the approximate cost of start up including where to get the insurance policy and cost?

TwoWalks,

PM Books O'Toole and he will send you a guide booklet on forming a posse!  He's the go to guy on this!  There is no equipment requirements and we have at least 1 posse that does old west reenactments.  You will eventually need targets and a timer, but they are not required to start a posse.

Bob, can not locate Books O'Toole to send a PM.  Is there an email address?

TwoWalks, if you look up the thread about 4 posts above yours you will see who Books is. Here is his e-mail. anastasiasbooks@comcast.net

Good luck on starting the posse. From the rules it doesn't appear to be that hard. Sure would like to hear that you got one going in your neck of the woods. It's great to find others who share the same interest you have. Check local gun shows and gun shops and see if they mind you posting some adverts on NCOWS and a posse. I know the NCOWS site has a few documents you can download and hand out that explain what NCOWS is all about. That should help you get them interested.  Grin

Okay...

I have asjked this on another thread, but feel that it is worth dicussing here too...

I am a member of the 'Florida Cracker Cow Calvalry', as was my namesake, the original Wadd Watson Ellis. Barring a vacation that overlaps a shoot, I will probably never get to indulge with them, but still want to keep up active membership.

My question for the group is, can I be members of two possis (sp?) at once?

Thanks!

BTW, If you have already ansered the question in theat 'other thread', I am just about to look in my 'new replies to my posts' ... So thanks!

WWE,

Yes, you can be a member of two posses.  You must declare one as your primary posse and you will count for insurance purposes for that one only!
