I was watching the Outdoor channel last night and the episode of Shooting Gallery was covering a SASS national championship. Now I haven't really been interested in SASS before, but the championship was for the relatively new Wild Bunch matches.
Wild bunch is much more appealing to me because of the 3 gun aspect using a mil-spec (or close to mil-spec) 1911, a lever action rifle chambered in a big bore pistol caliber, and a Winchester model 1897 shotgun.
It wont be cheap considering I don't currently own any of the above firearms. I am guessing an initial investment of about $2,500. But it's a goal I can start saving for.
Now if I can just get over the requirement to be in period dress during matches...
