doing this in the 80's. He performed
with other groups but many of them
didn't last more than a few years.
It seemed to him that politics within
the group was the blame.
A few of his friends tried to re-start
another group called "California
Gunfighters" which was well
known around re-enactors. That didn't
work so what was left of that group
put together another group and people
lost interest again so a few of
them thought they would put a group
together and make it simple. No
politics. No president, vice-pres,
treasury, no regimented meetings,
they just wanted to go out and have
fun. They called themselves The
Frontier Gunfighters and
started doing shows.
It's real simple, the only requirement
to get in this group is to have
period correct clothing which you
can put together yourself, if your
on a shoestring budget or can't
afford the cost of new clothing,
they know ways to help you or they
can point you to many outlets for
clothing, period correct leather,
boots, hat and so on. Dusty's kinda
the ramrod of the group and takes
care of getting the shows or event
to do. It's easy to learn the shows
they do and they only ask you to
be at the event you commit to.
is looking for people who want to
get into re-enactment of the old
west. The group starts each show
with a safety demonstration and
a talk to all the young ones in
the audience to explain to all how
dangerous guns are.
So, if you think you are interested
in this, give Dusty a shout. Contact
Dusty or any of the members and
they will answer any questions you
Gunfighters wants to keep the old
west alive. Join us!
