You know, I will use the Henry with the Navy Conversion....I am not comfortable yet with the Cap & Ball Pistols yet to try capping on the clock.  I fear that it may result in a dropped pistol.

Major and Bvt Lt Col Lewis-

When it comes to cap and ball pistols .... practice, practice, practice...

I had my one and only clear match to date using C&B pistols - at the first match I shot after returning from Iraq.

Not yet - I should be able to get the stages finished over the July 4 weekend and will post a better count then.  I'm guessing around 70 rounds for the rifle and 65 or so pistol if that helps.  I always say bring extra.....in case you drop a few rounds on the last stage (slippery little suckers!!) ....they die on the ground...

AND if we have enough interest in the Wild Bunch Team Match - you'll want some ammo for that....4 person team - each shooter will shoot two guns -
     1 shooter = 1911 and 97;
     1 shooter = 1911 and rifle;
     1 shooter = 6 shooter and rifle, (I call dibbs on this combo  ;D)
     1 shooter = 6 shooter and 97

Each Pistol will shoot 5 rounds; each rifle will shoot 7 rounds; each shotgun will shoot 4 shells - all guns staged on a table, total team time with 10 seconds added for each miss   This is a fun team match - you can shoot on more than one team if you want AND if the same team wants to shoot again (time counts only for the first time) that team can go for it just for the fun of it!   8)

I got the last of the items I needed today to make the special momentos for participating in the shoot - When I get one done, I'll post a picture.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!  $10.00 per shooter - sign up at the match between 8:30 and 9:15 am - safety meeting at 9:30 am!!

Look forward to seeing you at the Mini Muster!

I got the word on camping - yes, you can.  There are 5 hook ups (electrical) and plenty of space for lots of dry camping.  Area has lots of trees for shade.   Let me know if you plan to camp!

  Chantilly,
  What categories are you using? Sass or NCOWS, If SASS I'll need a refresher course, I'll shoot  a 75 Remington w/ 73 Win.  OR  58 Rem c&b w/ a 66 Win. (Both w/ BP and one hand pistol , of course) What are my SASS options, Also thinking about this for t-town.

  PS I think the party the 22nd should be at your house, (your'e closest)

To be honest, that's a pretty good Idea....

So, who is coming to this event, besides myself, Trap, Michelle, Lone Gunman, Quickfire and Sgt. Drydock?

LOL - Party, huh?  I'll be out at the range Saturday afternoon to set up. We're even going to put some Buffalo out.  A little partying and the buffalo herd will be facing off in all directions!  I still have to convince the long range shooters to let me paint the buffalo brown.  For some reason, they think they should all be white!  We may end up with a herd of the great white buffalo.  Newton Honey starts worrying when I write stages.....wish we had time to build a fort!  We may be repainting a prop so I can have my fort...truth be known, Fot Wallace shouldn't be too hard ... and I need a sand bar but I think the Gun Club would put me out of their misery if I dump a load of sand on the range!  Where are the enlisted men when you need them?? 

Trap, you are asking tough questions here....categories...well, as far as I'm concerned we can shoot this as the first combined NCOWS/SASS category shoot ever!  Actually, we will be using the NCOWS categories - same categories used for the Muster. I expect we will have at least 30 shooters even if its on the hot side.  If the weather will be kind, I wouldn't be surprised if we had close to 50 - there's some curiousity amongst the Kansas shooters.  Since this is a SASS range, all SASS approved guns are allowed - sort of a hybrid shoot - sometimes you have to give a little to get it to go!  I bought a 73 Winchester (no short stroke) so I'd have a correct rifle to match up with the pistol and clothes...but durn, it isn't here yet! 

Regards and look forward to seeing you!!  And if you want to come out to our place - you are certainly welcome!

REMINDER!!

GAF MINI MUSTER IS THIS SUNDAY, JULY 23 IN TOPEKA, KANSAS!!  The safety meeting will begin at 9:30 am, shoot following.  We will shoot this match with ONE PISTOL (yes, your regular match pistol is fine) AND ONE RIFLE (yes, your regular match rifle is fine!).  We MAY shoot a shotgun on a stage but the shotgun and ammo will be provided. 

Scenarios will reflect frontier military/Indian skirmishes from Kansas history that occurred primarily between 1864 to 1868.  If you want to shoot SASS or NCOWS legal pistol caliber weapons of that time period, bring ‘em on!  Perhaps we’ll see some Spencers on the range Sunday.  Rifle will be loaded with a maximum of 7 rounds at the Mini-Muster, so there is no disadvantage to bringing Spencer!

We will reload the pistol with a maximum of 5 rounds on 3 stages AND we will reload the rifle with a maximum of 7 rounds on 3 stages plus one more rifle round for luck.  BRING PLENTY OF AMMO – about 75 rounds rifle and 65 rounds pistol.  Better bring extra in case you drop some on the last stage! 

$10.00 match fee and every good trooper (and that’s everyone!) will receive a special prize for participating.  RANGE MAP AT http://www.kansascas.com/ccc_range_map.htm

To properly set the ambience, we will shoot in SQUADS instead of posses.  This shoot is a scaled down version of the GAF Muster so TARGET SIZE AND DISTANCES WILL VARY – some big and up close and some a bit smaller and further out.  We will use NCOWS (just like the GAF Muster) rule of 10-second penalties for misses.  Accuracy counts! 

We will also be using the following categories for sign up –
Men’s and Women’s Smokeless Shootist: Shooters may shoot smokeless powder and may fire handguns using a two-handed grip.

Men’s and Women’s Blackpowder Shootist: Shooters must shoot blackpowder or approved blackpowder substitute powder in all firearms, and may fire handguns using a two-handed grip.

Men’s and Women’s Smokeless Duelist: Shooters may shoot smokeless powder and must fire handguns using a one-handed grip.

Men’s and Women’s Blackpowder Duelist: Shooters must shoot blackpowder or approved black powder substitute in all firearms, and must fire handguns using a one-handed grip.

Men’s and Women’s Pistoleer: Shooters are restricted to the use of percussion revolvers, pre-1873 percussion or original/authentic reproductions of rimfire cartridge pocket pistols, and reproduction or original pre-1873 pistol-caliber repeating rifles (e.g. 1860 Henry, Spencer, 1866 Winchester, etc: Shooters must shoot blackpowder or approved blackpowder substitute powder in all firearms except those chambered for rimfire cartridges. Pistols and revolvers must be shot one-handed.

Men’s and Women’s Seniors: Shall be open to those over age 60 only, may use any of the above shooting styles.

Men’s and Women’s Elder: Shall be open to those over the age of 70 only, may use any of the above shooting styles.

AND…you will declare a BRANCH – Marines, Cavalry, Infantry, Artillery, Navy, Scout or Cowpoke  - Please try to match your attire to your Branch, if possible. 

WILD BUNCH SIDE MATCH FOLLOWING THE SIX STAGES OF THE MINI-MUSTER– 4 person team - each shooter will shoot two guns -
     1 shooter = 1911 and 97;
     1 shooter = 1911 and rifle;
     1 shooter = 6 shooter and rifle                               
     1 shooter = 6 shooter and 97

Each Pistol will shoot 5 rounds; each rifle will shoot 7 rounds; each shotgun will shoot 4 shells - all guns staged on a table, total team time with 10 seconds added for each miss   This is a fun team match - you can shoot on more than one team if you want AND if the same team wants to shoot again (time counts only for the first time) that team can go for it just for the fun of it!

Since this is a celebration, there will be an appropriate cake waiting with Lemonade and water, as well.  No food vendors at the range so bring your lunch! 

AND…Major Matt Lewis will head up a Color Guard to appropriately open the Mini Muster! 

A News Release is being sent to the local Newspaper and TV Stations.  Maybe you will be a celebrity!

The Weather Forecast for Sunday is calling for a high of 89 degrees!  All signs are clear for a really fun and unique day! 

Hope you can make it!

Regards,

I would like to go but I am going to try to make our monthly shoot at Logan, Ia. Things have kept me away from two of the shoots this year and I want to see people and catch up on news and the like, and throw some lead downrange.

I am looking forward to the GAF Muster in October. Guess I'd better get my application in soon, huh? :D

  Matt, sorry for the oversite, I also forgot Dave S . who may be comming. Why not shoot C&B this weekend . I'm going to , and could give assistance and/ or moral support. The only way is to jump right in. This is a short match and the weather looks perfect for front stuffin' revolvers.

Well, I was planning on bringing the Spencer.......

The thought of shooting that and a percussion revolver is interesting.

Let me see.....1860 Colt, Walker, Starr.....

And a 1911A1 besides?

This is going to be fun!

Trap...I don't know that it will be a short match actually.  We usually have 30 to 40 shooters every month and I expect there will be atleast that many shooters on Sunday.  Our regular match has about the same round count without the reloading and we get done by 2:00.  We won't have the shotgun and related loading so maybe it will end up about the same time.  Follow that with the wild bunch team shoot and it might be 3:00.  Safety meeting starts at 9:30 - it'll be a good day worth of shooting anyway! By the way, we don't break for lunch so bring your picnic lunch and eat when ever you feel the need.

We're all really excited that you all will be joining us at the range for the GAF Mini Muster and we'll do our best not to disappoint and show you a good time!  There will be a bit more SASSy look to the range than the GAF Muster since Capital City Cowboys is a SASS club. Unfortunately, we don't have a cool fort with buildings like KVC!  Most of our folks do a pretty good with their attire though and they're all a good bunch of people!

ALSO...OPEN INVITATION TO ANYONE SPENDING THE NIGHT IN TOPEKA OR THAT WILL BE IN TOPEKA SATURDAY EVENING BEFORE THE GAF MINI-MUSTER -

Want to meet for dinner?  There are a lot of restaurants near the hotels on Wanamaker.  We could meet for steaks and drinks and social time?  Anyone interested?
