Oh ok thanks so much taz. And don't worry I wasn't planning on shooting any live rounds with any type of gun, especially a 50 cal. I definitely respect gun safety, being an avid hunter has taught me as much. Thank you for the information.

Didn't expect you planned on shooting that. Being a public forum where folks of all experience levels visit, I thought it best to be extra clear and cover all bases.

Enjoy. If you need help tracking down a club, let me know.

FYI if you do want to get involved Cabelas has a great beater 45 colt. You will need to stick with a 45 colt. As the organizers require you to use their ammo and load the gun for you.
I've got a 1858 remington with a 45 colt conversion cylinder, and a doc holliday mounted rig, The QH I was training basically got stolen so I never got into it.

Correct - you will need a 45LC single action revolver with fixed sights to compete. If you can afford a Colt, it is a great choice. Due to reliability and price, Ruger is another popular choice. There are more options available from Cimarron, Taylors and others.

As with the horse training, the best thing to do is hook up with a club. They will usually lend you guns and other equipment in the beginning. This gives you an opportunity to try different guns, action jobs, barrel lengths, grip styles, etc. Guns and holsters are a big investment when getting into this game. Definitely a good idea to get started an figure out what works best for you before dropping all that money.
