Trouble at Swampwater

Posted by blueheronbobcat on January 31, 2012

This looks like the Wild West, but it’s really just a monthly shooting competition of the Lake County (Florida) Pistoleros. There is a wide assortment of authentic and replica firearms in play, and the contestants all dress in cowboy era attire. I was attending as a spectator (photographer) and was dressed in “normal” clothing. All during the competition people would come up to me and ask why I was dressed so funny. I enjoyed watching and photographing their event.
