Well it's kinda reenactment.

I'm trying to get into this. I showed up at my local club that does CAS, and it was a very nice evening.
I even got to try a round at the end, never fired a shotgun before, and it was fun

CAS, SCA, hehe. Same people in different costumes?

Long ago, a wargaming buddy of ours bailed out of miniature gaming and became a cowboy shooter/reenactor. For a while he was involved putting on shows at "Pioneer Village" a local interactive museum….

Different initials but there's a rather good item about the topic here

There's a certain fun in CAS, if you get with the right groups and people, and not with a bunch of dangerous yahoos.
Unfortunately a lot of the mounted shooters have also slipped over to CW reenacting and are "not to keen on authenticity, accurate portrayals, and proper tactics used in the war…"
And if anyone can find me a Confederate Cavalry Unit that had women armed with Henrys….please let me know….

A bit of a high end gambler or marshal

Gunfreak: Why are you pointing a loaded firearm at the camera person?

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP09 Apr 2009 2:48 a.m. PST

No, not loaded, and not a person, camera set on timer

Interesting, how the flash went all the way down the barrel to the firing pin!
