Man, that looks like fun!

Would my Garand qualify as a "Zoot" gun? Can't have a FA in Kanuckistan. If not the M1, then what about my stock '03?

I do have spats, a double breasted suit and a Panama hat. Coupled with my M12 and stock 1911, I could have a ball.

The rifle caliber guns are too big for the short ranges most capers are shot at.  Larger matches do have long range side matches where both rifles would work.  Think pistol caliber long guns and don't worry about full auto, almost everyone uses semi auto long guns.  In all of the AZSA matches I've ever attended only two people have used full auto guns and in my experience their full auto fire cost them time over the semi auto guns.  As a matter of fact many of our shooters use one or more lever action long guns and I don't see where they give up much if anything, time wise to the semi auto rifles.

PJ, I have a semi auto Tommy that is a lot of fun to shoot, but it is HEAVY. My little Rossi 92 is a joy to shoot and weighs nothing compared to the Tommy.

I've got two B-92's in .44 mag and a Rossi SRC in 44-40. I prefer the Rossi. Last fall I took 11 ruffed grouse with it, all head shots! Carries like a dream.
The 92's are "notchey" compared to my butter smooth Uberti 66 SRC. You gotta operate 'em like you mean it.

This fall my wife said - "No more grouse!", so I've been beating the bushes for a moose, but not with the 44-40 Rossi. I alternate between a Marlin 45-70 (NOT the Guide Gun) and my Shiloh 50-70 Carbine.

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!

My "Tommy" is from Volunteer Arms made in the '70s. It uses standard Thompson mags. I picked it up at a local "toy store" for $400 with two mags. The key to proper functioning is lots of oil on the bolt.

It was lots of fun despite the weather. Looking forward to more Zoot shooting next year.

Looks like y’all had fun except for the bad weather. Our October cas match got weathered out. I worked outside for 40 years in the bad weather, darned if I’m going to play in it. Ain’t no fun. We’re doing abbreviated [10 rds for the 1911] Wild Bunch match this month so we can get 6 scenarios in. If the weather is decent I’ll wear my pinstripes, fedora and nickeled 1911.
