ROKTMAN:

We've got a group of Cowboy Action enthusiasts here in East Tennessee, and I've been tempted to take up the hobby myself.

Have a ball! If the lady in your life also gets involved, you can double the fun -- not to mention the expense.  Aside from the cost of the replica revolvers, lever guns, and Derringers, the cost of authentic wardrobes alone can drive a man to seek comfort from good whisky -- which is more expense. And if he really wants to do it right, he needs a good, blooded horse -- (Wait a minute ... I used to own horses ....)

Lord have mercy, this line of thought is threatening to get really expensive. I think I'll go clean my guns and watch an old John Wayne movie to cool down.   ;)

In reading over my first list I note that I omitted the mandatory shotgun for "riding coach."  (It surely is easy to make suggestions as to how another man can spend his money.  :D)  

Seriously, though, that's a great hobby you're taking up. I'm sure you're going to have a blast (pun intended) and hope you'll give us a report now and then.
