Yes but Andy guns were tricked out back in the day Trigger guards were cut away locks were fine tuned internals were polished. Granted maybe not to the level they are now. But then the average cowboy wasn't pushing 300lbs either LOLWell if he was using a gun , holster and shooting techniques that say John Wesley Hardin , Frank North , "Wild Bill Hickok" and others used ... Then I might interested.
I just don't get shooting a 19th century gun that has been tricked out in a 20th /21st century way or modified in a modern way , not 19th century way ...
Or in a style that was never used while back in the day.
That said , if you enjoy this type of shooting... then have fun and shoot well.
He has talent, real talent. Don't know if he worked untold hours to get that way or if he was one of the lucky ones. I have seen a few and known a few who were REALLY good. The ones I have known just got it genetics. Not that they did not work on it but they just had some built in talent. As often happens with people like this they sometimes have trouble understanding everyone is not like them. As they would get older most would learn to understand it. Not everyone can do like they do no matter what. Kind of like athletes.That is impressive no matter how you look at it. I'm pretty sure most can't do that with there AR let alone a six shooter and a lever action.
Yep I do know guns were worked over then...Granted maybe not to the level they are now.
From what I have seen at those shoots it's as much about dressing up like a cowboy as being a fast shooterYep I do know guns were worked over then...
But your quote was / is my point.
Do your shooting how they shot 'em back in the day ... then I'll be interested.
If not ... then have fun ... but its not for me.
Luckily we are not limited to what or how I shoot...
That's bad a$$ when I was sixteen I lived in Cooke City Montana with my uncle who owned a Lodge hotel there and we had a guy come and stay there him and his wife and he was a trick shooter I guess you would say western style he put on a show I think it was 4th July any way he did some amazing shots I got pics some where of him quick draw shooting balloons out of my sisters hands lol he used wax bullets for that but any I know he died a few years ago but it was pretty cool how he could get that six shooter smoking
I love how they dress the part it wouldn't be cool to see a guy wearing a plate carrier and a tac helmet shooting a old colt .45 but then again that would be funnyI have no interest in Cowboy Shooting, but I sure enjoy watching them! They have so much FUN!
Anyone that finds a way to get more enjoyment out of shooting, more power to them!
I can. Using an AR-10 with open sights, a 1911, and a Winchester 1300. It's cute, but anyone who's shot 3 gun will tell you, it's not super impressive.That is impressive no matter how you look at it. I'm pretty sure most can't do that with there AR let alone a six shooter and a lever action.
