So I've gotten involved in SASS (Single Action Shooting Society). They offer a type of competition called Wild Bunch (based off the movie of the same name) which stars the 1911 pistol. There is both a traditional class which has one handed shooting, and very limited gun modifications, and modern class which allows a 2 handed grip and a few more pistol mods. I chose traditional because that's what the top dogs are competing in (not that I am any challenge to THEM, but I do like to challenge myself) I took a couple of pics during yesterday's shoot. The old guy in the red shirt is "Tex", he is one of the original SASS founders and at 70 something years old is still tearing it up. The other guy is "Mica". He is the top shooter in the club I joined (Rio Grande Renegades) and has both state and natl titles under his belt. He's the one I'm chasing (from far behind at this point ) These shoots are a real hoot, folks are super friendly and they mix up the courses of fire each time, so your old brain gets a work-out too.
