Airsoft and Cowboy Action shooting SASS

As most of you long time readers know, I LIKE GUNS!

Airsoft, nerf, cap, toy, dewats, air, blackpowder, real steel.

I like guns that go psssst, pop, bang and BOOM

Little guns, big guns , new guns, old guns.

Plastic guns, wood guns, metal guns and plastic and metal guns.

Blue, Black, matte, shiny, nickle, chrome, polished or worn.




My first love is cowboy guns

My first cap pistol was a  single action army, my first real steel, a J C Higgins (High Standard) Double Nine.

At one point in my life, I was down to one handgun ( the horrors!)

You guessed it, it was a Ruger Blackhawk 4 5/8 45LC/45ACP

I think I come by it honestly. I was born about as far southwest as you can get and still be in the US.

I trod the streets of Tombstone as a child.
(and no, I did not meet Wyatt Earp or Doc, I am not that old)


When Cowboy action shooting started, I was happier than Obama at a funeral.

Finally, a way to dress up like a 1800's pimp and not have to wait till the last weekend in October!

I got into the Single Action Shooting Society early, badge number 9946.

As with all things I do, I went all in. Bought guns, clothes, boots and hats,
 like they were gonna stop making them.
Then I started work for S&W, managing the retail store in Orlando FL and it all came to a full stop
(Store was open 10 am to 11 pm, 7 days a week, closed on Christmas. As with all things I do, I had to be there even when I did not)

I got to thinking 
(always a bad thing, I try not to do it much)

Could I use my airsoft guns to train at home for a CAS match?

I am gonna explore that topic over the coming weekend, I will get back to you soon.

As always, 
STAY THIRSTY MY FRIENDS

  1. I have been looking for someone who makes airsoft revolvers modeled after the old west or civil war guns (Peacemaker, Old Army, etc). Does anyone make these? All I can seem to find are modern style revolvers. Thanks.

  2. Tanaka, KTW and Hartford make copies, they are just rarely seen in the US

  3. It has been awhile since your post and I was wondering if you found what you where look for? if not have you tried hobbytron.com or you could check out theairsoftgun.net. Hobbytron.com sells airsoft guns but theairsoft just has information about the sport.
