Default My Best Idea Ever

Cowboy action shooting. Guys dress like cowboys, take on cowboy names, fire authentically powered ammo.

Not everybody likes cowboys. Sooo....

1) Prohibition Era Gangster Shooting- Wear pinstripe suits, fire Thompsons.
Take on names like "Fat Tony" or "Jimmy Knuckles".

2) WWII Action Shooting- Alot of you here are already geared for this. Uniforms can be had easily. Helmets are, like, $25. Even some milsurp ammo is available, so we don't need to spend money on expensive, underpowered by choice loads. Biggest cost outlay is Lucky Strikes, and yes, they're mandatory.

3) Miami Vice Shooting- Simply put, if you own a 10mm, you're Don Johnson. If you have a bunch of NFA, Phillip Michael Thomas.

What else?

Ineff, who is the fire lady in your avatar? I think I'm in love.

Benning, I have a 1911, a Garand and a bayonet, I would like to go to France. But I'll just wear levi's.

I'm in for the WWII, where can I get the era uniform? Have the Garand (thanks Linda ) also have a carbine if I want to be an Oss-ifer. I have my helmet from Nam I can take off the cover and get a net cover.. this sounds like fun.

Museum Replicas in Atlanta had alot of specific uniforms, repro Airborne and the like.

Alot of Nazi stuff as well, leaning heavily on SS gear.

I'm up for any of the suggested shooting themes. I like Thompsons and I like Garands.

BB, for WWII shooting, do we have to inhale?

No, but it has to dangle out of the corner of your unshaven mug.

I can handle that. Do I need to practice letting the entire thing burn without the ash falling off? Wait, that would red neck action shooting...
