Went out to the Agarita Ranch with a friend from work and competed in the long distance portion of the "Ride with Pancho Villa" event. I shot the following matches: - Long Distance Single Shot - Long Distance Pistol Caliber Lever - Long Distance Pistol The pistol is done at 50 yards on a steel pig. It took me 2 shots to figure out where to hold over on the target, but the last 3 were hits. The lever is 10 shots at a 100 yard steel target, again it took me 3 shots to find the hold over, but once I got it down I put the next 7 on target. Lastly was the single shot, and I used a Sharps .45-70 falling block with Creedmore sights. The first shot at 100 yards rung steel, the 2 shots at 200 yards rung steel, and my 3 shots at 300 yards rung steel, but alas, at 400 yards I missed two of the four shots. The kicker is I did that whilst standing with iron sights. That Sharps makes an AR15 feel like a Mattel toy, but I was amazed at how accurate I can be with simple iron sights at range. I finished 4th in the long range, and had I actually had some practice time, I might have won. Everything was on the spot training, LOL. I don't know if I can get into the dressing up part as it still seems a bit pagenty, but it was alot of fun. I think I might get into the GAF (Grand Army of the Frontier) down the road since you are allowed to shoot 1911s and 1903s. I love anything that allows me to go crazy on a bolt action. For anyone that is interested, let's get together for another one! They are doing events throughout the year. Here's some pics of my friends shooting: Bert "Wild Hog" 12# Napoleon cannon. Not every day you get to see a full size cannon get unloaded. At one point two WWI era biplanes flew overhead and they ripped off a FULL load of black powder and damn was that awesome, LOL. Evidently you can actually crew the gun and get certified to fire artillery. That's on my to-do list.
