The Guns

     Yep, we shoot real guns with real bullets. Guns must be original or replicas of the kind of guns used by cowboys in the late 1800's. The time period is usually defined as 1860-1899. 
     Due to the popularity of this sport, more firearms companies are producing authentic reproductions of old west guns. So, these kinds of guns are readily available!
     The basic guns needed are: 2 single action Revolvers, one Rifle (usually lever action), and one shotgun (usually a side-by-side double barrel or a pump with exposed hammer) . Some clubs set up their stages to include pocket pistols as well.
