I go and enjoy it also, as does Mrs. Flash. When I went to the first one, I was thinking of getting involved as a competitor. After one day of watching, I decided I definitely didn't want to compete, but I did want to watch, and I really like the vendors that show up for this one. Lots of good stuff for sale, and great kielbasa on a bun and french fries, too. [smilie=anim_beer.gif]

boss and i had a great time today.

got there around ten or so. did a quick walk through to see what was going on. ended up starting it off at a little show. guy was showing kids how to spin a rope. he then went into twirling six shooters, snapping bullwhips, throwing knives at a woman spinning on a wheel.

the best was his horse Lucky Joe. Lucky Joe won the boss's heart.

watched the gunslinger contest ( now that was fun to watch ).
best part was they had too many shooters for one stage of the comp so they needed to do a one shot contest with youths. three youths were made up of two boys and one tiny little petite girl. the girl won and as she strutted off she says, to the other youth boys, "good job boys". [smilie=anim_headbang.gif]

had some good pulled pork and beef brisket for lunch.Image

finished at the riders shooting the balloons running at a full gallop ( friggn amazing ).

boss is putting it on the calander for next year :D .


edit: forgot to mention the great costumes people were wearing. i thought it was watching "The Rifleman" first hand on the set. ;)

I wouldn't mind checking it out; haven't seen cowboy action shooting since leaving IL. I tried it for a bit back then, and other than shooting trap at the local sportsman's club when I was a kid, it was the first type of shooting competition I did. It's a lot of fun, and it also taught me that there's no such thing as a target too close to miss... [smilie=icon_lol.gif]

I didn't go all-out with the costume and such (can get real expensive in a hurry like everything else), but I used a pair of nickel-plated Vaqueros and a Winchester 94 carbine (both in 45LC...the ONLY cowboy caliber... [smilie=icon_lol.gif] ) and an import SXS in 12ga. Man, I miss those six-guns now...thanks... [smilie=icon_lol.gif]

Went Thur. for the swap meet. Didn't get any deal I wanted. Record number of shooters. They ran behind all day due to the numbers. Will be back next yr. looking for a deal.
