Costume rule clarification - Spaghetti Westerns

Recommended Posts

So I think we pretty well covered this in the FB group yesterday, but just wanted to double check that Spaghetti Western attire as seen below is allowed in everything except B-Western.

This is as stated in the rule book under b-westerns and I'm not finding the same elsewhere, so I think I'd be good to go?

 

"Costumes that depict leading role characters in B-Western movies are allowed as long as the costume is complete with all accessories, but the costuming must still adhere to the boot, leather, spur, hat, and firearm requirements. John Wayne, spaghetti western, and townsperson characters are not acceptable."

The only thing I see wrong is the left side pistol not in a holster.

10-4. That's the actual pistol that goes with the costume, but I'm still waiting on the correct rig to arrive

Might not have enough required items for Classic Cowboy, particularly leather.  But other categories, sure.  I've seen several MWNN fans who dress exactly that way.

I'll give you the same answer I did on Facebook. Yes. No question.

 

The only other exception would be Classic Cowboy and if you had the right guns, boots and a couple of more accoutrements it'd be ok for that.

 

You could shoot in your age category, any of the shooting style categories, and the open category Cowboy.

More leather? What would I need to add?

Look at the Clothing/Leather/Gun rules for both B Western and Classic Cowboy. 

You'll find this will NOT work in BW, but might, depending on accessories and caliber, for CC.

Well, unless that's a 336-44, it ain't legal in any category.  (Only Marlin 336 action in a "pistol" caliber I'm aware of).

 

As for Classic Cowboy, you're short 2 items:

Quote

- Must choose at least five of the requirements listed below, and all clothing items
must be worn appropriately during all shooting events and awards ceremonies.
o Chaps, western spurs with rowels and spur straps, cuffs, tie or scarf worn
     loosely around the neck or with scarf slide, vest, pocket watch with full
     length chain, jacket, sleeve garters, knife (screw knives do NOT qualify),
     botas, leggings, or braces.
o No Straw or Palm hats allowed.

1 if the serape can be substituted for a jacket.

It's a 30/30. I've been on the hunt for a rifle and shotgun for a few days now

That rifle being a 30-30 might not be legal but it's shoor purty! Marlin does a nice stainless 336!

Thanks so much Dan. It was love at first sight, I had some engraving done on it this week too... All the first born men have the JKK initials going back to 1885, I'm the 4th generation, I wanted this rifle to become something that gets passed down.

You wear them in the house?  Kind of tough on the bedsheets, I'm thinking. :unsure:

Not meaning to put a damper on this discussion but as PaleWolf has stated several times "discussion on facebook are NOT official rules declarations".  I personally agree with the gist of the statements but the Shooters Handbook as quoted is the Official statement. I noticed that some TO instructors have posted their positions on this thread but they don't totally agree with each other.  Interesting. You could send a copy of the photo to PaleWolf for the RO Committee's official position on the matter.

I mean... There's nothing much to do these days but dress up in the house and shoot wax bullets and practice twirling.

This ^^^^

With your outfit (which looks outstanding BTW) and would work for any of the age based categories there are some things you would need such as specific firearms and some costuming extras for classic or BW which are outlined in SHB bottom of page 7 to roughly middle of page 9 for Classic and BW rules. also the muzzle cant of the crossdraw appears to be greater than 30 degrees as worn.

Regards, Welcome and all the Best

The cant on the crossdraw would be illegal.  That may just be because your squatting down, but cant is measured 'as worn'.

My problem is shipping time. It takes a while to get stuff from the USA to Australia, especially at the moment.
