Steam punk/ B Western

Recommended Posts

Did making steam punk part of B Western ever go anywhere? 

 

I think steam punk dress may attract more of the younger crowd. Those like me that grew up watching Wild Wild West (Will Smith) tombstone, young guns, etc... Especially with the new West World being such a hit.

 

Thoughts?

I personally don't think that's a great idea due to holster, hat,  and gun restrictions of B-Western.

 

If the particular club doesn't offer Steampunk sign up for Cowboy or Wrangler and dress Steampunk.

I don't see how you reconcile the costuming differences without ending up where you started, two different categories.  I also don't understand why gunfighter was excluded.  Since it's not an official category I don't see why you can't choose to shoot it gunfighter.  Who is in a position to tell you that you can't?

Steampunk was an awesome idea until it was ruined by not allowing Gunfighters.

If you want to dress Steampunk, then by all means do.  Heck, maybe I'll dress Steampunk Frontiersman!  I've already done B-Western Frontiersman...

Now that my CRS, has become full blown CRAFT.:D

I had forgotten about that thread.

To confirm then-At this time, GF is not permitted in Steampunk. Is that correct?

If you follow the rules as suggested by Rolan, NO Gunfighter.

Because He said so was the reason we got. He doesn't believe Gunfighter's should should shoot in the same category as Duelists or Squaw grippers.

What I would like to know is: Is there a snowballs chance in hell that Steampunk could become recognized some day.

Based on Palewolf's ha-ha it'll never happen. 

 

I'll shoot it once or twice a year in memory of my friend, but beyond that; good luck.

If Gunfighters want to shoot "Steampunk", let them lobby for a "Steampunk Gunfighters" category.

Period, end of discussion.

There is no restriction against shooters in the Gunfighter category dressing Steampunk.

 

There are only 2 categories where dressing Steampunk is not allowed.   B-Western and Classic Cowboy/Girl.

True, but you probably can't win best dressed Steampunk contest if you're shooting the Gunfighter category.

I had never heard of Steampunk being connected in any way to B-Western. I thought it has always been a stand alone but not yet category.

I’d be into a steampunk category.  I think it could lure some youngins.

Watch the movie " League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". The newly invented Winchester rifle plays an important role in this movie.

Too many categories as it is! Dress however you want and shoot in a category that's already official!

 

Personally I think it's stupid looking and I know I'll get slammed for that but that's okay, fire away!!:P

Well, that's kinda weird. Is there a supposed advantage to gunfighter over duelist that traditional over duelist doesn't have, or is it a different reason?Personally I think the duelist has the advantage and I'll get slammed for that!

My club was the first to ever incorporate a Steampunk category in a big two day match. Only requirement was the shooter must dress steampunk.... goggles...gears and gadgets .... so on. We had a huge success with it, even the Judge SASS#1 dressed up( yes I have pics). I allowed any sass legal guns and any shooting style could be used and even changed from stage to stage if desired. It was a hoot and somewhere along the way as it grew from club to club it lost the fun and luster.

I didn't mean another category, I meant along with b Western, either dress b Western OR dress steampunk. Same rules, same guns, different costume. That's all.

 

I don't see how trying to attract younger shooters is a bad thing...

 

The only category I would like to see added is a big bore category, .40 call and up. But that's for another discussion...

We had a whole bunch of folks at our match today that thought we all looked stoopid (c) but after awhile I think they all thought we were having a lot of fun looking stoopid (c). So stoopid (c) looking may not be such a bad thing.
