In a word.  No.  

I have never understood why it is acceptable to have a BP only shoot.

If you had a "Smokeless Powder Only" match people would be howling.

 

SMOKELESS LIVES MATTER!

Or place in any other category (unless they changed something).  

Not that I'm some "hot fancy shooter", hell, I shoot an '87, but I at least like to hold out the possibility that I could win something.

I won my first major award at this match.

I still wear that badge.

I was thrilled.

The website says "This is a Black Powder only match, no smokeless powder."

That doesn't sound like smokeless is allowed to me.  I don't run that infernal hygroscopic stuff in my nice guns, so no, I won't be there.

In prior years, they had a "Smokeless" category but with no sub-categories.  If you wanted to shoot the match with smokeless, you could, but everyone was in the same category no matter the shooting style or dress category, it was just "Smokeless".  Personally, I thought it was a great way to get more shooters to attend the match.

 

While I do not profess to know the reasons for it being dropped this year, I suspect there were complications associated with that configuration, possibly even complaints to the Match Director about someone's "Smokeyness", only to discover later that they were actually in the Smokeless Category.  Or what do you do in the case where the Top Gun in a Black-Powder match is shooting Smokeless? 

 

Regardless, it will likely be another in a long line of excellent matches.  Lil Feathers and I have attended everyone except the first as we didn't find out about it in time to adjust our personal schedules so we could attend.  Looking forward to the move to January!

I've heard good things!  I just have no interest in shooting, loading, and cleaning up after the smoky stuff.

 

 

It's a disease, pure and simple.  Once you get hooked on the Smoke, there is no turning back.  :lol:

 

Besides, it provides a great excuse for those occasionally missed targets! :P

You are just like Badlands Bob, he says he doesn't want to dirty up his shiny guns.  According to Evil Bob shiny guns shoot faster!
