Bill, I'm sure your smilie must have felt his life was in mortal danger. Another words, that was defensive shooting wasn't it? Blades67, your lucky to live in AZ with such great cowboy matches and support. Not everyone has all guns when they first get started. When you sign up at a cowboy match, be sure and let the office people know what guns you are lacking, so they can stick you in a posse to share your missing guns. If that is necessary. A bare minimum to get started is probably one single action revolver and one lever action rifle. A second revolver and shotgun you may be able to borrow. In any case, your in for lots of fun.
