My current hobby: Cowboy Action Shooting

Unread postAuthor: D_Hall » Sun May 12, 2019 12:42 am

I haven't been building many canons lately, but I have been having a lot of fun. For the past 6 or so months I've been getting into Cowboy Action Shooting. For those not familiar, it's basically a 3-gun shooting competition where guns are restricted to designs that were available in the year 1899. So yeah, shooting competitions using guns of the Old West. Oh, and you're supposed to wear period garb. It's also been a lot of fun since it's the first thing that my son and I have ever really bonded over. I'm a lifelong shooter. He's a lifelong gamer...but thanks to Red Dead Redemption, he's suddenly into it!

I'm not very good, but I've progressed to the point I'm no longer embarrassing myself.

In all my Old West Nerdy glory....

And my son (who's getting pretty good himself)....

And while I'm not there yet, here's a video that shows just how fast some folks can be....

That looks like a lot of fun! Maybe one day I'll get off my sand bag and start standing up more often when I shoot, lol. I'm not bad at trap shooting though. Sometimes it's fun to do things the way they were done back in the old days to appreciate the skill it takes and the art of the craft.
