Got a round count question!  How many are needed for the 300 yd/meter long range side match. Trying to decide whether or not I should order some more 44WCF cases.  Just got a red squiggly under 44WCF. Are these computers so stupid that they don't know
what that is? Time to go back to hand-set phones and memorizing the math tables. What is this world coming to?

PS: Now there is a red squiggly under LTC and GAF. A bullet has just been cast with an" HP" on it.

Another question came up regarding round count. If you intend to shoot one of the 1-gun classes (Forager, Infantry, or Staff Officer) be sure to bring enough ammunition to engage ALL targets, not just the pistol targets. If one of the rifle targets is too far away for you to hit it with your shotgun you will move forward until you can.

Forager is a 2 gun class, revolver and shotgun.  Staff Officer (handgun) and Infantry (Rifle) are the one gun classes.

Sent mine out today.  I'll be shooting Infantry this year.  Unless I'm the only one.  Might change back to Marksman if so.  I'll bring the PPS for the Zoot match.

I really have no idea what to do for the zoot match. I have a 1911 and a m1 carbine but my loads for it are iffy. I have no clothing that would be appropriate.

You don't have cowboy or wild bunch guns?  Do you have a Henley or a white cotton button up shirt or a chambray shirt and bib overalls or dungarees and a beat up nondescript hat?  You don't have to dress like a gangster or a g-man. How about being a WWI veteran? There are lots of options.

Last year on the way home from the World's championship at Byers the waterpump on my pickup went out  and rather than get my good clothes greasey I changed into the clothes I'd shot in. The guy st the parts store  suggested that he had a mule out back that I could use to plow the south 40 with  ;)

I don't really have a plan for the Zoot either...I thought before about just being a farmer and shooting my Marlin pump 25-20, but then, it might not knock anything down, and I don't have enough brass to hit all the targets 3 times. Maybe a WWI Vet? Hmmm... Could a WWI vet shoot his war trophy Mauser 98?I know it's not competitive with a Thompson, but I don't really care about winning it anyway(like there's any chance of that), just to have fun.

Well, not most places, but I'll allow it as long as the ammunition is loaded to GAF specs.

Maybe I'll try something like that....I do have an M-1 Carbine, but I've never tried any lead bullets, and time is getting short for load development.

Oh, almost forgot, check is in the mail.

I've had 2 requests for lodging so far. Will anybody else that will be camping with us need a tent or something to stay in or is everybody else bringing their own?

Bringing a new tent. Still in the box.

Gonna be interesting figuring out the proper way to set it up. 'course, I never seem to do things the proper way.

I'm bringing my tent, but I would like to borrow a couple of your teepee poles if you're not planning to set up the teepee.

& I will be bringing an orange cooler. Found a bag I can cover it with.

Just a quick note about costumes for the Zoot match.  In an attempt to keep it from becoming a military reenactment sport (not that I think that’s bad) Hustler prohibited all military uniforms.  I convinced him to revise that to allow military uniforms if they had a relationship to the prohibition era.  Some examples would be Coast Guard, RCMP or Mexican Federalies.  If you want to wear a 20s or 30s uniform please be creative with your back story. 

On the other hand AZSA costumes are really easy.  Just about any Good Will store (you may have to hit more than one) will provide most everything you need.  A bit oversized suit (single or double breasted, with or without a vest, the wider the lapels the better) will be great.  If you’re going to wear a tie with that suit remember to tie it short so it ends at about mid stomach.
 
How about knickers, very popular in the 20’s and not just for golf but that’s a great AZSA costume as well.  If you can’t find knickers any loose fitting pants bloused just below the knee with a big rubber band will give you the look.  Hang them from a pair of suspenders (even I can sew buttons on a pair of pants) and you’re good to go. 

Button up shirts and sweaters were popular but t shirts weren’t.  As a matter of fact what the kids today call a “wife beater” was the t shirt style of choice in that time but it was also rare for someone to go out of the house in just this shirt. 
 
Everyone wore a hat and the first thing everyone thinks about is the fedora, but remember, the snap brim (driver style) hats were almost as popular.  In the west the cowboy hat never gave way to the fedora.  How about a straw boater or skimmer, this was the summer time hat of choice for many a man in the 20s and 30s.

Hope that helps.

I wasn't aware of the Uniform prohibition so I'm glad you pointed that out! Not that I own a 1930's uniform. ;)

I’ll leave firearms decisions up to Pitsptr but AZSA rules don’t normally allow .22’s for anyone but juniors if that’s what your PPS is chambered in.  Please bring it in any case I would love to get a look at it.

Frankly, as long as its not a t-shirt, shorts, sneakers and a ball cap, you can pretty much shoot in either match . . .

I suppose you could be a rather old and well armed newsboy . . .

?  The PPS-43 is a Russian Submachine gun chambered in 7.62x25.  Same as the Tokarev TT-33 I'll be pairing it with.  This one is the Radom PPS-43c semi-auto version.
