Black Powder Revolver (Cap and Ball) Silhouette?

Post by TexasSilhouette »

Playing with the idea.
1 or 2, 20-Shot matches.
10-Pigs at 40
5 Turkeys at 50
5 rams at 75

Loading (minus caps) before ready, capping during 30-second ready, five shots in two minutes.
Round ball only.
Post/notch sights, no Olympic style sights =))
heavy targets with target damage rules (can't imagine it a problem)
Match would be at the Austin Rifle Club in Manor, TX some time this summer or fall.
Small entry fee to cover range use and some kind of (white elephant) award.

We would probably have an extended practice period to wear everybody down before the match. :D

Interest?
Thoughts?

Glad to see no chickens, they’re still trying to recover from this past weekend’s state match... unless... how about full scale chickens?!
