Whoa there, FAL308. I didn't use the word bizarre about anything, though I guess it might apply to some of those "I wish I had" ideas.
Some of the stuff I wrote is well known to you and other folks who are experienced in CAS and are knowlegable about the old west, but there are newbies who like to gather info. I don't know much about the clothing and such, but I have read and heard a lot about the guns and how they used them, and also studied the guns themselves, including conversions.
One reason I don't get more into CAS, though I have tried it, is the need for costumes. I don't dress in a Civil War uniform to shoot my rifle muskets nor do I dress like a Nazi officer to shoot my 1940 P.08. Just not much for playing dressup, I guess.
