View Full Version : I want a new game.

Cowboy Action, but with only two guns, like the real cowmen mostly used.
One lever action rifle and one revolver, usually of the same caliber.
And full power loads, only, please.
Dress up optional.
Anyone else like this idea?

Western 3 Gun is the closest I know.
You do need a shotgun and there is a dress code but it is more relaxed than SASS and much less strict than NCOWS.

As far as the clothing, dressing up in vests, chaps, scarves, wrist cuffs, spurs, all that is optional in SASS or W3G. Blue jeans and a long sleeved work shirt, and you're good to go in either. No tennis shoes, t shirts or shorts, designer type jeans, not that hard to do. You don't have to be in an old west or hollywood western outfit.

Western 3 Gun still uses two revolvers, rifle and shotgun. They don't have a power factor requirement, but they use a lot of knockdown bonus targets that keep you from going to low in the power factor measurement.

A real old west cowboy probably didn't waste much ammo in shooting contests as far as wanting to be authentic. Of course to be authentic, you'll need to shoot blackpowder loads. I shoot blackpowder 44 russian and 44-40 loads. I have more fun shooting the bigger bores than I would shooting 32's or 38's. Mark

I still don't understand why clothing has to be a requirement for any shooting sport. It's about the guns and shooting isn't it?
