It's not nice to talk about Romo that way.

As a long-time competitive pistol shooter this was sounding really amazing right up until I read...

What are you firing?
It's a blank .45 caliber black powder cartridge. So it's the burning powder that breaks the targets. It's kind of like a small shotgun blast, without the spread. You can't bust a target with the cartridge at more than 20 feet.


Pretty much kills the whole thing for me.

Then this may be hard to explain but...

Part of the fun of the shooting sports, at least for me, is the visceral nature of shooting itself. There's a certain enjoyment I get from the recoil and noise and the launching of big, fat bullets down-range at high velocity. Shooting black-powder blanks just sort of turns this into something... Cartoonish; for lack of a better way to put it. Not that I don't respect the skills that must be required to do well at this, because I do. I know how to ride in a western saddle (sort of) and this would be no easy combination to pull off, much less pull off well and with any degree of consistency. In short, though, It's the idea of shooting black-powder blanks. It just takes all the fun out of the equation.

Yes they are six shot revolvers. However, in competion sass events only five rounds are chambered. A single action revolver can fire if dropped with the hammer on a live round.

"Six gun" is another word for a single-action revolver. So the photo is captioned correctly.

True. Due to the historical context of our events though, the guns are carried as they were pre 1890, with the hammer on an empty chamber.

It's a safety issue, there's usually spectators. Also consider that they're at full gallop in parts & having to make quick turns, doesn't make for accurate shooting. I live just 1.5 miles from the Founder's Ranch & have watched mounted shooting competitions (I know some of the people) & it gets intense.

Regular (unmounted) SASS competitions do use real bullets, but they're limited in velocity (1000 fps for handguns, 1500 fps for long guns) & must use soft lead bullets to ensure disintegration when they hit the steel targets. All guns must be designed (not built, most use replicas) before 1899.

About 3-4 years ago the top local SASS shooters & local LEOs decided to compete against each other, the LEOs using their modern weapons & the SASS folks using their 19C weapons.
Guess who won? If you thought the cops, you'd be wrong.

A lot of SASS folks participate in different shooting sports, look into SASS, you might be pleasantly surprised.

SASS is fun. CMAS is even more fun. And you use the blanks so you don't kill yourself, a spectator, the horse, etc. And they're not strictly blanks: they pack the ends with walnut shavings.

I'm a very experienced equestrian, though I ride English style.  I'm also a pretty good shot with a pistol.  I can't imagine hitting a damn thing while moving at any speed on horseback.  That's some serious skills.

I tried Cowboy Mounted Shooting a few time.  I did this really spiffy course in a tall, narrow valley, and the targets were set up quite high.  It was quite hard, and I generally sucked at it, but I practiced hard and was able to complete the course hitting all the targets.

The 50-arrow quiver was totally worth it.
