Thanks folks!  Somehow, amongst all the confusion with Harvey, I missed seeing these posts.

Joe....yeah...I'm going to have to work on a military uniform.  My other characters are a Mexican Peasant, and a Plains Indian!

Troy, have you ever found any period photos of the "classic" white shirt and pants for a peasant outfit? Maybe I'm not searching right, all I can find is some of reenactments of the revolution, with all identical shirts, pants, hats and red bandannas. I doubt they really were all that uniform. In period pictures from the Mexican Revolution, I rarely see that outfit-mostly cowboy/vaquero outfits, or "townies" standard period pants, shirt, sack coat.

You're implying the costuming in "The Magnificent Seven" may not be historically accurate?!!  How DARE you?!!

I'd love to see photos of that outfit on actual combatants.  Should be an easy one to do if the research supports it.
Title: Re: Attention to Orders!
Post by: Good Troy on September 11, 2017, 09:16:09 pm
Okay...so my characters are NCOWS  originals approved!  I modeled the white shirt and pants after the "Magnificent Seven"...it was the theme for the first annual match that I attended at Thunder River Renegades.

Here's one photo of the classic white shirt and drawers...

I'm not sayin' nobody wore it-but there's sure not many pictures on the web! I was searching a few months ago, and found 1(one)period photo of the "Mexican peasant revolutionary", but didn't save it, and can't find it again! Was and older guy, outfit was pretty worn and torn, posed pic with a Mauser rifle, If I remember correctly.

The mexicanhistory.org link had some good photos.  There is a video, which I'll watch later (it is bed time!)  on there called the Storm that Swept Mexico.  I did a scroll though it, and there were even some motion pictures w/ Zapta and Pancho!!
Title: Re: Attention to Orders!
Post by: pony express on September 11, 2017, 09:30:33 pm
I haven't seen the video yet. Maybe I should modify my statement, not that there's NO pictures wearing that outfit, but there's not many, and most don't show much detail, like the "insurrectos" picture. Details like :collar? No collar? pullover vs button up? Or maybe some of each?

But on the other hand....since I'm 6'1" and fair skin and green eyes, maybe I shouldn't try for the "Mexican Peasant" look....

Good Troy,
Congratulations!
if you'll send me your email, I have some color illustrations of Mexican peasantry from an 1876 book printed in Mexico showing typical dress of different social levels, plus some pics of Mexican paper currency from second quarter of 19th century.
I would post here but when Photobucket wanted to charge for third party hosting I told them "Adios!"
My email is on my CAS City profile, just click my name on the left above my avatar.

Congratulations Troy.  Hope you're not TOO water logged.  A guy I work with didn't get water in his house until well after Harvey passed.  His Harley's were in the entry way.

Hi

As my first Department of Oklahoma action, I'll attend this year's Land Run and hand out a few recruiting brochures and a schedule of the Department of Colorado's shoots.  I'm not really optimistic, mainly because the chances of rain on Saturday is 90%.

Ah well, all you can do is slog on thru.  Hope we can see you up here in MO next march.  Should you ever get something together, I'd love to come down.

Hi

Well, I went out and put some pamphlets in the headquarters, which was probably a waste, but I did talk to Flat Top Okie, the leader of the Oklahoma Territorial Marshals a bit.  He was positive about the GAF.  They have a strong Wild Bunch group.  The other guys spent as much time recruiting me as I was therm.

I think I'll get a list up of what we have at OKCGC (Arcadia OK) and at Tri-City Gun Club (Norman OK) and see what we would have for targets.  I'm guessing we'd have to use all lead, but depending on cost, I could spring for the 100, 200, and 300 yard targets in the better steel.  We have a bench rest range to do that on anyway. 

I sent the last picture to Mike Moore of Buckaroo hatters, where I got what I was wearing.  Those slickers are pretty good.

A shoot at the Oklahoma City club would be great! The range where they shoot long range is plenty big for lots of down range movement.

Hi

The High Power Range?  That might be a maybe, maybe not.  No one down range that I know of, but I'll look over there again.  There are a few more bays at the Cowboy section / 3=gun now too.  Not sure about how to use the houses, their targets are pretty close for us too.

It's been about 13-14 years since I shot Land Run. Do they have all the stages on cowboy type bays now? When I shot, they had 2 or 3 stages on a 100 yard (I think) range with a long covered firing line, and the rest on cowboy bays. I remember one of them was a fort, with raised firiung positions.

Hi

They're built a few more bays since I was over there last year.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Oklahoma+City+Gun+Club/@35.7177022,-97.3034942,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x60c3df8e40331e32!8m2!3d35.7126498!4d-97.3123777 (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Oklahoma+City+Gun+Club/@35.7177022,-97.3034942,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x60c3df8e40331e32!8m2!3d35.7126498!4d-97.3123777)

There may be as many as 14 bays now, but I doubt that the targets will take 30-40 Krag hits even with lead loads.  The 14 doesn't include the two Muzzleloader ranges.  I think they're 100 yards. 

Are you still in the OKC area, or did you travel to get to OKCGC?  They're shooting a LOT of people based on the weekly scores.

I travelled from Missouri a few times. I expect unless their targets are made of 1/4 mild steel, they should withstand our cast loads. We load to basically the same specs as SASS. At our club, we have lots of older targets cut out from 3/8 mild steel that hold up just fine, even for standard 45-55-405 loads. I doubt a 200 gr 30 cal bullet at 1300fps will do any more damage than a .44 or .45  250gr will.
