Hi,

So, while back home, I read an article about Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS).

CAS is basically a shooting competition that includes elements of role-play. As you might guess, the time period is the Old West. Participants are expected to dress in costumes contemporary with the late 1800's. They use weapons from that time period as well.

These are fully-functional weapons so obviously players don't shoot at each other. Instead, there's a target range where shooters are expected to hit targets with pistol, rifle and shotgun. These events are timed and there's usually a strict order of weapons and targets. So each shooter runs through a pre-set "script", that may include non-shooting elements such as rescuing a dummy from being hung by cutting them down or retrieving a weapon from a chest.

Although the early google hits on the subject are a bit lacking in web savvy, I did think the subject was kind of neat and present it for general web dissemination.

later

As a member of the SCA and a gamer and a (now, though not when it aired :-(... did not see it) Firefly fan...

I so want to try CAS. I like firearms and I want to learn how to play with them the right (and safe) way.
