Johnny, you always did a great job writing stages, and compiling the scenario booklets! I remember when we met during my first trip to the NCOWS Nationals in Evansville, IN., probably 2011 or so? Thank you for staying involved by helping with the NCOWS Website!

Interesting!

I started shooting SASS & NCOWS matches in 2007 at the tender age of 67. Father Time spares nobody and I retired from competetive shooting a few years ago. That said, while i was in reasonable shape for my age at the time, there is no way I could ever shoot in a prone position. I'd need help getting up.

Back in wisconsin, we always tried to make our matches interesting by using various props. At our SASS matches in Wisconsin, one of the stages was always a "Shotgun only" stage. We also had a "Working Cowboy" class available which required one pistol and a rifle, no shotgun.

At our NCOWS Posse in Wisconsin, on one stage, the shooter shot a Sharps Rifle, off the clock, for a bonus.

Aw Cummon Perfesser!!  You gotta admit them there Oxy Bottles have the potential for some real entertainment at/on the firing line.

His articles taught me to cast bullets close to forty years ago.  Learned a lot about reloading for revolvers from him, too.  Thank goodness his writing will still be with us.

i'm familiar with the m2000 but he was saying that now or currently they are manufacturing the Schofield which i didnt think so and turns out to be true....did see a nice original Colt 61 Navy, only 30k!!
the vendors had some nice set ups but prices were way crazy
Is the new Schofield a duplicate of the M2000 with the shortened frame, or a true reproduction based on the original configuration?

Sounds like we need to start incorporating stages written to accommodate walkers.

And presbyopia.
And accomodate oxy bottles away from the firing line

 ;D
