    Hello all. I don't think I'd be able to get into this soon but I'd like to learn what I can about it!

    I tried searching for a group near me (Sullivan, IN) but. I couldn't find one. So I wouldn't me able to go meet up with a group.

    How would you go about teaching your horse not to be gun shy? I think this is the main thing I'm curious about.

    I have 1 45 colt revolver so I at least have 1! Lol

    Any info about it or a point in the right direction would be helpful :) Thanks!

    I've watched a couple videos on how to gun break your horse. That part at least doesn't seem to difficult.

    Where can you even get blanks for a .45 LC? Can you make them if you can reload? My boyfriend knows how to do that so that's why I ask. He's not for sure if he can.

    Where can I get blanks to practice with?

    My boyfriend reloads ammo. Can you make blanks yourself? He isn't sure

    Howdy,

    There are two clubs that I found in Indiana.

    Mounted Gun Runners of Indiana - Knox, IN
    Southern Indiana Regulators - Milltown, IN

    The second looks like it is only about 2hrs away. For contact info, check out:

    Cowboy Sports Association

    That is the CSA list of clubs. There is also CMSA and MSA - make sure you check both.



    For blanks, there are several sources:

    Whitehouse: White House Ammo
    Circle E: Circle E Blanks
    Lonesome Pine: Welcome to Lonesome Pine Shooting Supply

    Some of these suppliers also offer "training" blanks or "half loads" which can be lower volume and/or less expensive.

    There are other suppliers. CSA has a list at this link:
    http://cowboysportsassociation.com/A...oProducers.pdf


    For starting a horse, you should also consider "primer only" loads. Going from primer to half-load to full-load is a common progression. It can be done on your own, but is usually much better with someone who has experience training horses for mounted shooting.

    Roy and Teresa Cox are in Missouri (Cox Performance Horses) and they are very good trainers. That's about the closest I know to Indiana, but I am sure there are others. Give Cox and the above clubs a call - they may know someone closer to you.

    Thanks for the info!!

    I wouldn't be able to go to any of those clubs. Too far away got me lol and I don't have a trailer yet so I wouldn't be able to take my horse anywhere.

    Unfortunately, it is pretty rare to have a mounted shooting club that is _very_ local. I run a club in NY, the next nearest club is a 3 hour drive in either direction. There aren't that many of us east of the Mississippi. :)

    A trailer is basically "required equipment" in this game. Most local clubs have at most one shoot a month. For someone who really wants to get involved and play on a regular basis, a 3 hour drive to shoots is not unreasonable.
