    I think this might be Antiquated, if not delete it out. :) I know this forum is for showing the restoration of old stuff. Well, this is restoring the story of the Old West. I'm a Hangtown Marshal out of Placerville “Old Hangtown”. Our group acts as ambassadors to the City and we perform all over the area. We mostly perform gun fights for events, such as resorts, festivals, grand openings, weddings, etc., and most recently Founders Day in Placerville on Saturday (that’s me in the pic with the wagon, I’m walking with the double barrel on my shoulder).

    It is fun to entertain folks with a taste of the Old West. The kids especially enjoy the show. We use real guns, with blanks of course. Our skits are comedy and it is so fun to have shoot outs in Old Hangtown main street.

  2. Very cool, I was into SASS for a while years ago and enjoyed it very much.

    didn't Mattell or someone else make a minature model of that cut-down lever action? I seem to remember having something like that.
     
  4. Marx, called the "Mare's Laig".
    I have no clue why leg is spelled like that.

    If you were from Texas and were fluent, you'd understand "laig". We often eat aigs for breakfast too. ;)
     
  6. LOL. I missed that.
    I can now see why Esso changed their name. I bet they were not real popular in Texas.
     
  7. My rig for the Single Action Shooters Society.

    Memorial_Day_Sunday_20183.jpg Nice Wrayman! Some of our Hangtown Marshals were in SASS. I don't have a good pic of my rig, here is a shot of me on Memorial Day right after a performance. I shoot a Ruger New Vaquero.

  9. I bet that is a lot of fun. We have quite a few Civil War reenactments close to home but no Western style ones that I know of. We took a scenic train excursion in WV years ago where they staged a hold up. The kids had a blast and talked about it all the way home.
    The picture is a first generation Vaquero in 45 Colt. I just plink at cans every now and then on friends farm.

  11. That's how they should look. Here is an old one that carried a smaller frame 22 SA.
