Duelists unite!!!

Pat Riot,

 

  Good job. This silhouette can be viewed as left handed shooter, or right handed shooter and hence covers duelist and double duelists.

 

 

Sorry,Captain, but I just took this from a public domain site. It has no copyrights or proprietary status. I just thought it was a great example.

 

I wish I had that kind of talent.

 

I just remembered something. One thing you can do is take a photo of someone that is shooting Duelist. Preferably against a lighter background. Then take that photo crop it to the size you want the silhouette to be and copy it on a copier. Now take the photo off the copier and take the copy you made and make a copy of that. Keep repeating that until you have a good silhouette. Just keep copying the copy. It's actually pretty cool.

A poll would be helpful!

 

I propose:

#4 Shootist Duelists

#5 Coolist Duelists

#6 Duelists

I'll get started on it.

Could just keep it simple as #6 above, Duelists, or "The Duelists"

Personally I like having something a bit different. Yes we're Duelists, but I'd like the club name to be different than that. My own opinion though.

I'd like to see another option. I feel Pistolero de Uno Mano is too long. I suggest simply Pistoleros.

Shouldn't there be an option of none of the above in the poll? I'm not trying to be negative, but maybe some folks aren't ready to settle on any of the proposed names. Just the meager opinion of someone that dabbles in duelist.

Okay, I'm a meathead. I like Original Pistoleers but I clicked Duelist...Sorry. I clicked the name Duelist, moved my mouse and got "Thanks for voting". NO, it's not your site Dorado. I jerked the trigger. :mellow:

 

Something just too cool about the word Pistoleer.

There you go Hombre, a none of the above option. If you have any name suggestions let me know soon and I can add them in.

I may have fixed that. Try again.

 

Please only vote once though.

Also, answer order is random. They change every time you look so double check that you're clicking the right one.

Thanks - I did, once I got that far in the thread!

Thanks for getting this going!

Thanks for voting.

I figured that there's just no use in everyone bickering on this aspect so we might as well move forward with that part and get it behind us. That's also why I set it to go through the weekend so that people would have a chance to read all of this and vote.

Thank you and I did get it right this time. 

 

Curious as as to why many select Duelist. We are all Duelists that are voting, right? So why would you name a club within a classification the classification's name? Odd.

I am a Gunfighter.  (JEDI #235) I have shot Duelist a few times when stages have been written with that as my only option or when I chickened out of split pistols...I like it - I just prefer GF. 

 

HOWEVER, you nutty Duelists are HYSTERICAL and very entertaining! I'm pretty sure that the "cool" JEDI kids would sit with you nutty duelists in the lunchroom ANYTIME!

 

Hugs all around!

After only a year of shooting I moved from traditional to gunfighter.  However, I have been a "classic" duelist for way longer.  However long the Classic Cowboy/girl category has been in place, that's how long I've been a duelist.  It's my favorite and by the looks of this thread I am in some pretty terrific company!

I believe the Classic category was first introduced at Mule Camp in 2002, I was shooting duelist and I had everything to qualify for CC except for a hammer shotgun but I couldn't come up with one in time! I went to Classic for a few years after that then went to FCD for 7 years now I'm SD and back to smokeless! What a ride!!:)

Then I am guessing I may have started in 2003 or even 2004 because it probably took an official vote to make it an official category.  Thanks for the info.  I've often wondered but never did the research.  I use a lever action shotgun because I never liked the doubles when I shot them originally.  Adding hammers to them was certainly not going to improve my feelings.  :lol:

Been wanting a lever action shotgun. The 1887 is just so damn cool and fun looking. Eventually I'll get me one.

Well, Alexander Hamilton was a duelist.  He came in second.
We can make our badges out of ten-dollar bills.
Has anybody got a spare ten-dollar bill?

Rye,

 

 Sure thing. It was just a build on whichever one of my fellow duelists had put in The Originals. I'm not really that creative.

 

I also figure the acronym "TOP" looks neat too.
