If you didn't have school, you could just stay the week between- I expect you could talk Mrs Pitspitr into 5 days in the Colorado Rockies. (No, I can't try that myself, we were just in Colorado last month. And then there's school....)

The last of the Sand Creek Raiders Fun Shoots including GAF categories will be this Saturday and Sunday October 22 and 23, 2016.  Check out the first post for a full explanation of how the match will incorporate GAF participants.  Side matches on Saturday afternoon and Main Match stages on Sunday.

The October/Halloween shoot is an SCR tradition, sort of an end of the shooting season throwback to earlier Cowboy Action times.   You'll find your self with some sort of Halloween themed bonus on most every stage and all sorts of gimmicks as well.  This is never a "stand and deliver" match.

Had a great time.  Stages were fast and imaginative, worked well with the limitation of the range.  Great company, good folks, a fine campfire and a bottle of Rough Rider.

Oh, and once again I was forced to recognize that Smith and Wesson cylinders rotate the wrong way!

If that causes you problems you should probably sell it... cheap ::)

I'm trying to get it lined up to attend the July fun shoot.

Will try to be there. Will have been busy that previous week, and it will depend on a number of factors.  If nothing else will try just to show up!

That would be awesome! I'd really like to meet you.

I will be there unless something unforeseen happens. Unforeseen as in, oh say, dying? If I die I might have to miss it. ::)

Had a great time.  Was finally able to meet the Southern District of the Platte commander, Trailrider. There were at least 6 GAF members present, but 2 were on the other posse so my wife wasn't able to catch up to them for a photo. Don't forget the September 24th match

  :( Regret I will be unable to attend the 27 May shoot, as I will be enroute to The Swamp at Foggy Bottom to escort my granddaughter on an educational tour of the nation's Capitol.  Have another unavoidable scheduling conflict with July. Will definitely try to make the September shoot!  Maybe by then I can load the 500 pieces of .44-40 brass that have been on my loading bench for about the last 3 years  :P

Wishing all the best for a successful, safe shoot!
