View Full Version : Noir style three gun match
December 26, 2001, 09:24 PM
Think of the Prohibition era and go on up to early 1940's. This is the Film Noir era in moviemaking. There was a lot of gunfights during the prohibition era that would be good for tactical study as well.
Weapons would be from that era.
1921 Thompsen SMG or the semi-auto 1928A1 from Auto-Ordinance.
Chopped Browning A5 shotguns, Winchester M97 shotguns.
1911's, Lugers, Colt DA revolvers, S&W DA revolvers, and ect.
Contestants will dress up in period clothes, play in character as Prohibition era B-movie gangsters or G men and pulp fiction Detectives.

Since I don't have anything like a Tommy, can I substitute another rifle or carbine of the era?

Don't forget BAR's!
IIRC, Bonnie & Clyde ripped off a NG Armoryu or two and grabbed some BARs. And Hamer had at least one when he ambushed 'em.
AAMOF, conmsidering all the iron that was brought back from WWI...Chauchaut shoot anyone? :p :barf:

For the good guy (G-man/detective etc) a Colt New Service Revolver, a police issue remington auto shotgun and for the "big" stuff a BAR or a Thompson, though a remington auto rifle is "correct" for the time, as would a 30-30. Fedora required. Badge optional.
For the bad guy (fu manchu) a luger, a mauser c-96 with a shoulder stock and a really expensive (purdey) shotgun. Head gear should be unusual.. a fez or turban. Sword cane optional.
for the "gangster" a 1911, winchester trench gun/ sawed off model 5 and a Thompson. Straw hat, fedora or beret for the girls. Hideout gun in sock, brass knucks and or switchblade otional.
For the "fortune hunter" a 1917 Colt, sawed off double 12 ga. and a mauser action .375 HH rifle. Safari hat is essential. Machete optional.
See.. if you pick the last "role" the IDPA target behind the 34 ford isn't that hard to hit.
