    Hey, I'm part Scottish too. Mother's maiden name was Ness.

    I'm serious about the Constitution. That is why the socialist hierarchy is unable to disarm the commoners in the US

    Still works pretty good.

    How did you find this?

    I was just looking yesterday at a Model 1 1/2 in .32 rimfire!!!!

    How much did yours cost?

    Details!!!!!!

    Notice you're a person who appreciates the older styles like me. I still haven't posted all of mine yet, but I'm sure you'll be familiar with most of them.

    Gunbroker auction with a bad picture. Nobody seemed to want it very bad so I got it for $55. Probably worth about $175 or so.

    Got any Colt SAAs?

    Yeah, that's awesome, man. I would definitely have bought it. Hell, I would've jumped on it for $175, though. lol

    I have a 1851 Colt Navy .36.

    I do CAS and for that I usually use my 1875 Remingtons in .44 WCF.

    But my dad does indeed have 2 Colt Model P's in .44 WCF, a Colt 1860 Army, and he liked my 1851 so much he decided he had to have one of those as well.

    No originals, though. These are all reproductions.

    CAS is good stuff. Not for me (please don't take offense) but CAS does not recognize double action revolvers or many rifles of the era (except maybe in side matches) so I shoot GAF-"Grand Army of the Frontier"

    CAS shooters can shoot their guns in "Scout Class" and I enjoy watching them very much. Most of us shoot 45/70 Trapdoors with an SAA, Scofield or Remington in "MilSpec Single Shot" or Krags and a Colt or Smith&Wesson double action service revolver in "MilSpec Repeater"

    In this video, the Krag is squib loaded so as not to blow holes in the steel targets. The Colts New Army is loaded to full power service specs.

    I drove a total of 3000 miles to do this shoot in Nebraska. Three guys came up from Texas and a Canadian guy comes every year.

    It's a BLAST!

    Nice clip! Good shooting! Looked like you were having a great time.

    ^Well, CAS is what you make it. I agree, all guns from the period should be able to be shot and I have a lot of problems the way typical SASS competitions are.

    SASS is more about the competition and less about the time period itself.

    NCOWS is more strict when it comes to the authenticity, but they're much smaller, so I haven't shot one of their competitions, yet. But I do think they have the same firearm requirements. At least I don't have to worry about competing against a guy dressed like Roy Rogers with a six gun in .357 Mag.

    Since I'm more about the history aspect, I'm a little bit more about authenticity.

    But I will admit that it is nice to be able to shoot your guns in a combat style setting, which is what SASS has provided for me. I'm actually not even a member of it or any other CAS organization. I just go as a walk-in competitor. lol

    I'm surprised I've never heard of GAF, but it looks awesome. Would definitely be interested in that. So its more based strictly towards the American military of the 19th century?

    Love the Springfield Trapdoor, btw, and the .45-70 cartridge.

    Do you do any other types of reenacting? Typically, I do French and Indian War and Texas Revolution, but I've also done Civil War as well. A lot of my gear is also conducive with the War of 1812 and the Mexican American war.

    Figure since you posted a vid, I'll post some pics



    Can't remember if I've posted these here or not:

    Thanks Wild Woods Woman, It was a lot of fun! Those guns I was shootin came from up your way-the rifle-a Krag made in 1899-came from Maine- and the Colts Officers Model came from Massachusetts.

    Locks up like a bank vault and hyper accurate, this old Colt has an action like glass. Another Gunbroker auction. Nobody really wanted it so I got it for $232. Made in 1905.



    What kind of musket is that Sword? A trade musket? Brown Bess? I have an M1812 Whitney and an M1816 Springfield in various stages of deterioration/restoration. The Rifle Shoppe has all the parts for them, new made.

    GAF covers the era from right after the Civil War to the Philippine Insurrection (Victorian Era) with an Expansion Era side match for
    later guns like the 1911 and 1917 Enfield.

    Off hand cycling in the GAF is going away. You will still probably be able to use two hands, but the firing hand must cock the pistol.

    This is the only historical type organization I belong to, but I like to fire guns from all eras of North American history.

    Need to get a matchlock one of these days!

    Its a French Tulle de Chasse. For French and Indian War, I portray a coureur des bois (runner of the woods); basically a French trapper & trader of the from the Mississippi Valley, which includes the woodlands of East Texas. This gun was first produced in the early 18th century and survived in many forms throughout. Some survived into the early 19th century, and it is theorized that many may have made it into the hands of the defenders of the Alamo.

    I'm beginning to get gear together for my portrayal of a French Marine from the same era/region, and this gun works perfectly for it since many French Marines served as coureurs when off duty. Its really a Jack of all trades.

    I would love both a Brown Bess and a M1816 Springfield. As of now, the muzzleloaders I'm looking at right now is a Queen Anne's Pistol, a dragoon pistol (looking at French, English, or Prussian and I still can't decide which to get first) and a Jaeger Rifle; though I'm also looking at a Southern Mountain Rifle from Tennessee Valley Muzzleloaders.

    I have a lot on my list. lol

    I thought it was something like that. I could tell by your outfit that it was definitely at least to the late 1890s.

    Off hand cycling in the GAF is going away. You will still probably be able to use two hands, but the firing hand must cock the pistol.
    Is there a specific reason for that?

    This is the only historical type organization I belong to, but I like to fire guns from all eras of North American history.
    Looks like an organization I'd be interested in. I'll definitely have to check it out.

    Yeah, I'm just a history/military buff in general. I love it all.

    Agreed. Add one more to the list up there.

    I love this thread....

    Does anyone know where to get a shoulder holster without paying an arm and a leg? Preferably nylon, with one with a spot for the gun to be tucked away vertically on one side and a place for one or two clips on the other side.
