Cowboys, Guns and Cigars

    A photo of me taking part in one of my favorite pastimes: Cowboy Action Shooting. This was taken in Jackson New Jersey with the Jackson Hole Gang. I’m wearing a brace of 1858 Remingtons with .45 conversions (pistols made by Uberti), and I’m shooting my CZ Hammered Coach Gun. A posse mate offered a pair of his black powder loads (I run smokeless) and he snapped the action shot spitting fire and brimstone out of my scatter gun.

    I wish I had the money to get a beautiful CZ Hammer Coach and converting it (legally) into a short double barrel shotgun!
