I'm thinking of all of you having a great time at the Muster and wishing I was there enjoying myself as well. 

My only consolation is that I'm 6 weeks from retirement, so I'm looking forward to attending next year!

General - you can't be retiring - you look much to young for that!:)

I hope to enjoy this shoot someday as well.  Be safe ya'll.

I am getting to shoot on sunday locally in the wilds of Sussex, VA

However, on saturday I am the ranking USCG officer participating in the Smithfield Vet day parade.  I will have a small crew of one of my small boat stations with me as well.  Hope I do active CG, all Vets and GAF proud.

RCJ - You know once the ship is underway and away from land the Skipper makes the rules...I would think that based on onscene weather - the skipper of your ship will make the appropriate choice!:)

T - Minus Zero Days

Muster is over and we had a great time.  It was a pleasure to shoot on our Squad.

Heck, you fellas are having a good time.

Maybe if an AWOL Mexican Federale showed up next year, would you guys let 'im draw pistolas with you?

Pancho, I guess we can use a federale that wandered north of the border. Why not, we always have a place for that AWOL Canadian, Rattlesnake Jack! But he must be cheating somehow, to manage to hit 9 out f 10 on that long range stage(out to 400 yards) with that target killing Snyder Enfield!

Well, I must admit overhearing someone saying, after they called "Hit" on the 400 yard target: '"Don't know if that was on the first or second skip ..."   ;D

We have struck camp and will be heading north momentarily.  Will endeavor to send in dispatches whilst en route, depending on availability of suitable couriers.

A suitable courier being available, I am able to report that this contingent has successfully journeyed as far as Quanah, Texas, some distance out from Palo Duro Canyon and Amarilllo, having passed through Austin, Waco (where we stopped for a very enjoyable visit to the Texas Rangers Museum), Fort Worth and Wichita Falls.  Will continue west out of the Texas panhandle and through New Mexico and Arizona Territories before turning north into Utah.

Had a very enjoyable time at the Muster, I must say!  Special thanks are certainly due to the organizers and hosts! 

Have some soul searching to do regarding my previous comments about the Snider-Enfield being an arm of questionable accuracy, after getting 9 hits on the 10 targets ranging out to 400 yards on Stage One (shot last by my Squad) .... guess I must have actually been getting the hang of it by then!

Glad to hear that a grand time was had by all. Cactus Rope and I made it to my quarters last night about 11:00 PM after a stop in Austin and one at the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco.  Dealt with some foul weather while crossing Indian Territory but our conveyance brought us through in grand shape. Sitting here now wondering why I am still up so will close this report and burrow into the bunk.
God Bless Texas!!!!!

Your advice well given, Captain!  Reports of hostile action on the trail west to Albuquerque in New Mexico Territory (well .... boring scenery, anyway) induced us to divert to Santa Fe, where we overnighted.  Plan to tour the town a mite before continuing to Albuquerque and then west into Arizona Territory.  No waggon difficulties ....
