I vote we adopt Pecos Nick's suggestions for names and badge design. Absolutely love the gauntlet idea to symbolize Duelists. 

 

I'll second that.

I found that pins are alot cheaper than badges and do we really need more stinkin' badges??? A pin can be worn on your shirt, vest, hat or wherever. Bubba hooked me up with a place that does pins and she'll even help with the design. 

 

Duelists, "We are rolling!!;)

They don't necessarily cost money if you use the right website builder. I have the summer off so I might be able to play around with making one.

 

But here is the thing with the name shootist, we aren't shooting in the Shootist Category. There are the Jedi GUNFIGHTERS and the Magnificent Seven CLASSIC COWBOYS. Sure, I love the word and the idea, but it isn't exactly us. That's just my two cents.

First congratulations on top 16 again great shooting.

 

Second i agree with you about the name shootist.

 

Third if you have the time and skills excellent and thank you is what i say. Still don't think FB is a bad idea could a link be added. 

 

Good luck today.

Why, thank you!

 

Im not going to say right off that I have the skills, but I certainly have the time. The chances are good that I can try and get something up and running when I return from New Mexico, but that might be a few more days from now as we plan on visiting the family property.

I agree, the name should have something about Duelist in it!! Thanks for offering to play around with a website, this is all in the very early stages, I had no idea it would gather this much attention!!! Love it!:)

Since it looks like this is really going to happen I'd like to jump ahead of the game and make a suggestion. SASS has The Wild Bunch who are the original founders. I propose we form a similar group. Keeping with Nick's theme I propose The Court, as in King Arthur's Court. Not a governing body but an honorary recognition. I further suggest Rye Miles be #1 since this is his idea in the first place. If we do go with Nick's naming theme I propose he be #2. My final proposal would be to recognize two of the greatest Duelists from our past, Nutin' Graceful and Frederick Jackson Turner with #s 3&4.

I've noticed that the Duelist, Senior Duelist and FCD categories are kinda dwindling. Everyone's going Gunfighter. It's time for us Duelists to unite! Gf's have the Jedi thing going on what about us tried and true duelists who shoot the way they did back in the day!! I've been shooting duelist for 20 years, never shot anything else!

 

Duelists, ya got any ideas?:D

 

Rye

I went the other way 'bout three years ago, from Gunfighter to Duelist or FCD. Other than Wild Bunch, it's been all black powder so far this year. ;)

I think you're idea is great but I do think it goes a little farther than I expected. I don't think anyone should be #1 or get special attention. We're all in this together and trying to promote the one true shooting style of the old west. We have 5 duelists categories, Duelist, Senior Duelist, FCD, Classic Cowboy and Frontiersman. I'm going to play around with a 'creed" to follow and help promote duelist categories. For example, encourage some of the younger shooters to try duelist, they may find it a real challenge. Older shooters also, who may have been in the military and were trained to shoot one-handed with 1911's. I don't know if this makes any sense but any suggestions are not only welcome but encouraged!!

 

Duelists Rule!!;)

I'm in.

Very disappointed that I had to quit shooting my 3 screws as Senior Duelist, Been shooting Senior Duelist for about 8 years.

Now I shoot my single six 32s instead.

I think you're mistaken. The correct term is probably foolish.

When I first started this game many years ago I shot traditional then switched to 49er for about a year and have shot a duelist category ever since. As soon as Classic was stared I switched from duelist to CC, would shoot duelist only when I wanted to shoot my .38 revolvers and then in the fall would shoot Frontiersman. For the last two years I shot FCD and last month have changed back to CC. Duelist IS Coolist! I'm in with whatever you choose, but I do like Shootist.

It's really too bad we don't have a Polling option on this site. That way names, options, etc could be listed and tallied. A lot have forums have dropped voting options but some do still use them. It would make this type of thing a lot easier to track. 

 

There sure are a lot of great ideas here. I think it's pretty darn cool.

How about this for a Duelists Creed:

 

I will not be wronged, I will not be insulted, I will not have a hand laid on me. I don't do these things to other people and I require the same from them and I will never shoot two handed!;)

I thinks Shootist is cool but should have Duelist in it to.  What about something like "Duelist Shootist Society"  or Dueling Shootist Society
