Bottom Line: Is GF legal in Frontiersman?

Recommended Posts

I have just started shooting BP and having a blast.  I have two Navy 51's and have thought of doing Frontiersman.  I shoot FC in GF mode.  The handbook says Frontiersman is two handed, Duelist or Double Duelist.  Searching through the forum I've come across several mentions, and videos of people shooting GF.  Is this just a local club category and banned in sanction matches?

I could not find where Frontiersman may be shot two handed.

From the writing i think you need to back off the coffee a little...But, if I thought I could handle one in each hand, it might be interesting to try...Something very new to me...Shooting cap gun with right hand...Must be quite a sight, With Tongue stuck firmly in cheek...When are the pictures coming...

I do have some things to send your way for tuning...Hopefully you are not too busy...And snubbies do sound interesting...Pictures so sound good, but can we get some good looking cowboys in them...Cowgirls would be better...

One may compete in Gunfighter category using percussion revolvers.  One may not shoot gunfighter style in Frontiersman category.  One may use double duelist style in either Gunfighter or Frontiersman categories.

 

...unless of course the match is allowing additional nonSASS categories....

 

You gotta get the distinction between categories and styles!  ;)

I've been known to shoot FCGF with cap guns; when I sign up to do that I say "I'll be a little long on the Frontier and short of cartridges"

 

For a real hoot; shoot Josey Wales with 2 sets of cap guns.B)

No worries.  He doesn't keep that one in a holster, he just shoves it in his waistband.  Outlaw style.

Tusco is on my list of clubs I want to try to get to one day. 5 pistols would be a hoot; I have quite a few cylinders and a bunch of cap guns.
