Are cap and ball pistol shooters at a disadvantage in CAS pistol events?

I guess what I'm wondering is: do CAS pistol shooters have to reload during a timed event? I am assuming all events are timed ???

Another question. Is the Ruger Old Army pistol a replica of anything that was used in the wild west?

Get your mind right and the body will follow.

Howdy Sensop,

C&B shooters who also shoot BP in their rifle and SxS shotgun compete in their own class.

Occasionally,a match will have a stage that requires a pistol or rifle reload. Sometimes it's one round,sometimes it's a full reload. And,yes,CAS matches are timed events.

The Ruger Old Army isn't a replica of any Old West firearm,but it is a legal SASS pistol.

But the Ruger Old Army with Adjustable sights doesn't qualify for the black powder class, it has to be shot in the modern class.

If C & B is what ya got, then don't hold back...get out there and shoot. Most Cowboy shooters don't give a hoot about their score anyway.
Do It!'ll be glad you did...even if you place dead last.
