Rondy's are where you dress up in period clothes. I don't think he wanted to go that far.

A rondy with western guns and western garb is a CAS match.

I don't have period clothes. I show up in blue jeans and t-shirt. I'm genre Homo-slobbicus-Americanus.

Where to hold it?

Some deep valley somewhere, with no wind. Thousands of smokepoles and six-shooters going off. Forest Service would go nuts at the 'Wildfire' in progress!

The Doc is out now.

The most BP shooters gathered at one time, that I know of or have been part of, is at Winchester Va. at the N-SSA spring and fall Nationals, held every year. The firing line has to be almost a half mile long, or more. the smoke is incredible on a windlass day. The sound of all them muskets firng at one time, is a BP shooters joy. You have to be part of it or winess it.

Speaking of sounds......

A hot firing line is something to hear alright.......not the sounds you normally hear in the movies...........another experience is to be in the "pits" pulling targets at a rifle match. When you hear "pfft" of the bullet hitting the paper followed instantly by a "CRACK" and then a faint "boom" from the firing line, with an occasional "whiizzz" of a round tumbled by a low hit on the berm, or the "ziiiing" of one that hits a rock.......then multiply that by 10..20...30... as the case may be, you begin to wonder how ANYONE could get up the nerve to charge a line of riflemen......

yep that would be something.
I went to the range this morning, wont be long now
and i will be a prisoner indoors, because it gets to hot
here in the desert. I took my 36 remmy, shot about 60
balls with 22 grns of 777, i got to talking with this guy
he was shooting a flintlock, he was telling me of this
muzzle club, its called the muzzle stuffers ( cool name )
so i am going to join, cause its so frecking boreing on
your owen have no one to shoot with, at this 99% of
pepole shoot hi power and autos. So i will have to get
me a muzzle long gun.
