    I got moved to the weekday shift at work and two of the guys there are big into the cowboy action shooting events. They've decided that I need to go out there and see what real guns are like, LOL.

    They've been dragging out all kinds of guns for me to try out, some Vaqueros in .45 LC, and a Colt in .22 Win Mag. So far I've not shot the greatest with the Vaqueros, but the Colt I put 6 rounds in a 1" diamond at 7 yards with it.

    Hopefully I don't end up blowing my leg off out there playing Cowboys & Indians.

    Anyone else in the Austin area wanna go with me? It ought to be comical at least.

    So when is the big event?? I'm usually available to watch someone else in pain...Want to shoot a real "cowboy rifle"? You can show off with that 1886 Winchester of mine.... Guaranteed no one else will have one like it! MG

    Perhaps steel toed boots would be a wise investment.

    Looks like fun when they show the events on TV. Let us know how it goes.

    not sure but i thought that a requirement of single action shooting was 32 or grater cal for pistol unless you are 12 then .22 is ok

    The .22 is practice, and frankly caliber limits at a SASS event is laughable, they don't enforce any power factor, so a .45 LC has as much recoil as a .45 ACP squib load.

    "Load it so it falls out the back of the cardboard".
