Ranges vary from 20 to 100 yards, on half scale silhouette targets.  Long ranges uses full power ammunition on 3 armor steel targets placed 100-200-300 yards  See below for a Skirmish run.

Oh and grab an arm load of wood and drop it by the fire on the way back.   ;)

I'M IN! And the Quigley is the weekend before! What a great two week vacation!

I'll be driving out from New England, pulling a travel trailer,  if anyone wants to come along.

I was looking at some old pictures from previous Musters and it occurred to me; I kinda miss Texas Sgt., Scooter, Bowview Haymaker, Windy City Joe, Guns Garrett, Megan O'Ruckus, Cherry Lake Kate, Major Matt Lewis and Cowtown Scout. Not to Mention Stu Kettle, Cherry Lake Jake, and Curly LaGrande

My registration is going in the mail Tuesday!  Going to try single shot military blackpowder  this time. Only seems right for the Little Bighorn fight. I was inspired last year by a Texican that goes by Oklahoma Tom, or Hamish Scott, depending whether or not he's wearing a dress! (kilt) Beautiful green Scot tartan by the way!

I need to get my registration in. 1st Sgt. Tom Rhodes will be at Little Big Horn with the 7th Cav -- again. I believe my Irish and Scots counterparts will be otherwise engaged. Area for bivouac has been procured.

I am getting excited here, People!

So I'm going to assume, unless I hear differently, that I should plan on bringing both GAF and American Plainsman appropriate gear.

Me too! I think this is the most competitors we've had registered this early, and we're seeing several new faces.

Yep, real excited!

I'll let Col. Neiderlander address the Plainsman stage.

So, Sgt Rhodes, the latest Shootist came the other day and there's a picture on the back that looks vaguely familiar.

If your referring to the fella on the Tshirt, I've met that scoundrel a time or two. My advice is don't trust that Tom Dunphy.
