Have any of you ever attended the events?

Sounds interesting...might be a way to get some of my friends into shooting

Gwen,

It is a very fun and enjoyable event. you can check it out at Mike Rohagee range in Norco Corona. I have witness some shoots there and it is definitely something to look into.

Everyone dress up and everyone is has anick name.

Funny you should ask. Pa Danby comes from a certain movie character who had 3 sones. Kind of like me when I started Cowboy Shooting. Definitely a good way to get folks interested in shooting. Although End of Trail has been moved to New Mexico several interesting shoots happen in the LA area. And there is a club shooting just about any weekend day locally..

GwenInLA1: I missed you. I haven't seen you post anything for awhile.

A little, and very little rant:
I was somewhat disappointed in SASS, when we tried to overturn SB23, most of their member were pretty blase about it because it only affected them very miminally, and then at the end zero. Early SB23 was going to ban one of their tube fed rifles, but the bill amended to except them.

Yeah that was a terrible thing a group that was actually able to fight and win at least partially against a very bad bill. I guess maybe the AR guys couldn't get organized or find enough political support. It's much easier to pick on them and whine then to learn from a successful action.

Maybe a state and national and international group based on ARs might be needed, or we can continue to sit in our corners and complain the hunters don't like us, the cowboys don't like us, nobody likes us.

If I was to guess, there are probably clost to 15,000 cowboy shooters in the state. Most monthly cowboy shoots in SoCal bring in 100-150 shooters and there are about 8 clubs in the greater LA area. We have monthly shoots at Burro Canyon and we get what about 10 regulars, 15 almost regular shooters and 20 -5 at most. Hmm what a surprise they are more organized.

Thanks for the great feedback! Sounds like a group I'd like to get involved with (dress up and guns, woo hoo!) I'm involved with a different group...Victorian era... so I have the era appropriate clothes :)

OTOH...the political lack of interest worries me a great deal...maybe they could use a bit of encouragement (ahem...not to be construed as being a trouble maker.)

Side note: Warlord, I was away from the computer for a bit- All's well now
