    OK let's say hypothetically, if I get into cowboy shooting, do I HAVE to wear that?

    Yep.

    Or you could dress as the Chinese rail workers did in the late 18th century. Come up with a name that fits the clothing and be the first asian bad a$$ in SASS.

    Actually, I think that would be quite cool. Rules state "Period clothing". I'm tired of all the gunslinger wannabes that show up, time for something new. Saw one guy that came as a farmer, overalls, brogans, floppy hat, simple holster and lever gun. Shot very well.

    OR can you say Kung FU? Remember the series with David Carradine?....oh wait, he didn't have a gun. Nevermind.

    Anything "period" including Hollyweird. That includes:

    - 50's TV Western
    - Spaghetti Western
    - Coolie
    - Gunfighter
    - Buffalo Hunter
    - Plains Indian
    - Pueblo Indian
    - Woodlands Indian
    - Navajo, Apache, Yaqui, etc.
    - Mexican
    - Townie
    - Barkeep
    - Banker
    - Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker
    - Cavalry
    - Infantry
    - Civil War
    - Fur Trapper/Mountain Man
    - Floozie
    - Schoolmarm
    - British Cavalry
    - Zulu, Hottentot, Tutsi, "Fuzzy-Wuzzy," etc.
    - Rajah
    - Mandarin
    - Samurai

    ... OK, not so sure about the last few, but they're the right time period so I don't see why not.

    'Sides, what's wrong with pants, suspenders, a bib-front shirt, and a hat?

    BTW:
    Been done. Feller goin' by name of "China Camp" is a champion shooter. Got a gun named after him and all.

    Ever see the movie Red Sun? Can you picture a banjo picker of Chinese decent, dressed as a Japanese Samuria while participating in a Western Cowboy shooting match and riding wooden horses? :)

    (Sounds like a plot for the next reality TV series.)

    (Edited for lousy spelling)

    hey, skunk, why don't you get hooked up with Dennis Ming? He's ultimately tactical and he does cowboy action shooting.

    I used to shoot with Dennis. Actually haven't seen him around since I started teaching guitar at church and haven't been making it out there on Sundays.

    At a costume party, we had to go dressed up in 1920s stuff, I brought my Cantonese Urban Camo and a mallet.

    Do I have to get one of those silly holsters or can I be the Tactical Carbonfiber China Waterbuffaloboy with my thigh holster, and load my .30-30 rounds from a ninja magazine dump pouch?

    Seems like the clothes is gonna cost more than the guns. Time to go shopping when I hit up China next month :D

    Get some feathers, best would be eagle feathers, though, I think its a federal offense to have eagle feathers in your possession, so substitute pink flamingo feathers. Make into a headdress, or stick them with hot glue into a baseball cap.

    Get some red paint. Slather on red paint over all of your body, remember to remove all of your clothes.

    Go as "Buck Nekkid". :D :evil:

    Skunk, I'm sure you know this already...

    ...but sometimes you can be so INSCRUTABLE, it's hard to tell.;) Can't use that 30-30 for the main matches. Usually OK in long range side events though, targets are made to take more pounding, and are far enough away that splatter isn't a big factor.

    Definitely a rail worker get-up, complete with fake ponytail and coolie hat. For further tips, rent Blazing Saddles. Suggested SASS alias is Ming Ping Pow. What fun is life if you can't make fun of yourself? ;)

    I have a skullcap with a pony tail. I wore it to work a few times and got the nickname Hop Sing. :)

    Tap rack Chang

    Gets my vote...ROTFLMAO

    Tap rack Chang (Skunk) does this, either history will be written, SASS will add another 'catagory, or ...not sure what the tactical community will do...

    Skunk....

    Dennis "China Camp" Ming is a dear and respected old friend of mine. Not to mention he does stuff with a sixgun that David Carradine doesn't believe.

    From the old "Have Gun, Will Travel" radio and TV series, "Heyboy!" The character's real name on the series was "Kim Chang". Actor's real name (TV) was Kam Tong. In the radio series, the actor was Ben Wright. (How's that for exploiting the Asian people?)

    The reality is Asian people, especially Chinese, were a big part of the American West. The railroads would never have been built without them.

    G'day Skunkabilly, and et al.,

    I want to thank you all for making this thread happen. I've enjoyed every entry. It is really hard to not to laugh out loud reading all this. Yeah, the family is asleep. It's one of the few moments I get to enjoy the board.

    Anyhow, I wanted to cheer you on when you do get to a match. Whatever you choose as an alias!

    Myself, I've been trying to persuade the good folks here [around the real Tombstone AZ] to host a more modern version of a cowboy shoot [ie. 3 gun match]. I'm in a similar boat, I don't have the duds or the old guns. I've got newer ones but I would love to have a go at the 3 gun format. Right now I've got about four folks that are mostly interested. I think when I get a couple of more we can get something really going. Until then the regional pistol matches and etc will keep me busy.

    Please keep us posted on what you end up doing! Nice to know I'm not the only Cantonese speaking shooter out there! [Yeah, I've got the tag on the backside that says made in Hong Kong!]

    Cheers!
