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,

SHOT Show 2014


38 days until another fabulous week in Sin City.

I hope to bring you tales of daring do and  debauchery,  but do remember, I am old.

Dinner at 4 and in bed by 7 is my kind of fun now.

Take this time and look back of my past posts from SHOT show years ago, 
 they should be good for a laugh or two.

Winter is coming ,
If you don't get this, your too young to read this blog

Ordered my Brad Thor jacket so I will be warm and styling at the show this year.

Hope there are some new Airsoft items to show off at the show.
Last year was pretty slim.

Let me know if there is a booth you want to see pictures from.
I have a real photographer ( Rusty Spenser from ) and a video guy this year so it should be easy to do.
