Zoot Shooting in Wisconsin
« on: September 23, 2018, 05:56:37 am »
We might be getting something started in Wisconsin.  I belong to a SASS club,the Liberty Prairie Regulators out of Ripon, Wisconsin. I shot our August monthly Zoot Style! It was a hoot!! The ramrod of the club, Doc Bonecutter, (who has a tommy and a Zoot Suit) says if we can get enough shooters, we can put on our own shoot. So, we will be shooting our October monthly ala Zoot. I say we, because Silver Creek Slim said he will be coming down from Red Granite to shoot Zoot, and if Doc will put on his yellow Zoot Suit (did I mention it was bright yellow!) and bring his tommy we will have 3 members of the yellow banana gang shooting with da cowboys! This will October 20th, the 3rd Saturday of October. If anyone is interested send me a PM.

Machine Gun McCrae would be there if he wasn't moving to Florida in October.

Well, our gang of 3 has increased to a mob of 4! I got another cowboy, Kid Buz, to shoot with us. He went out to his exclusive taylor, Goodwill, and got a new suit for the shoot. See you all in the funny papers.

We haven't had the shoot yet! It's next weekend, the 20th. It should be a great time. I'm hoping to gather some more interest in the game. I think we'll probably shoot with the cowboys for awhile till we can get enough people to put on a real Zoot Shoot!

We'll we had our Zoot Shoot, rapped in a Cowboy Shoot, today. We had 4 Zoots shooting. It was a cold, wet day. It rained on us, it snowed on us and tornadoes kept blowing my Fedora off! We only shot 4 out of 5 stages because of the weather, other than that we had a great time! Three of us learned that 30" full choke barreled shot guns aren't the best for shooting clay pigeons. I think we have a future here. I'm not sure what are next step is. We can always shoot at some of the cowboy shoots. Maybe have scenarios just for Zoots. More rounds at the targets. Maybe set up a Zoot only stage, with movement. Or take the plunge and have our own shoots on a separate day. We'll see what happens next year.

PS I have pictures but don't know how to post them.

Looks like you guys had a great time.  Take your Zoot guns to other shoots in you're are and let others try shooting them, that will get them hooked.  If you can set up one stage (Caper) at a local match that allows movement and let others shoot it they may just enjoy it.

When we have our Club's Annual Cowboy Shoot next year, I'm going to see if we can set up a caper as a side match. Let them use our guns and let "da cowboys" have a chance to try it. Hopefully we can get some more interest in it.

No, it's  not an Auto-Ordinance. I don't know who made the gun. Maybe Sliver Creek can respond on that. The shotgun is  a Remington Model 11. As far as shotguns used, we had one Auto 5, one Remington Model 11, a Winchester Model 12, and the Winchester Trench Gun. It was a blast. But I did have a hard time keeping my Black & White shoes clean in all the mud!
