Is this like a competition I recently saw on American Shooter on ESPN, where
contestants in period clothes use replica guns to target shoot in a series of
scenarios (breaking out of jail, in a mine shaft, etc.)? If so, a big slap on the
back to you! That looks cool.
I was just telling someone Saturday about how much fun that looked like (he
and I are both avid hunters, and both have an interest in muzzleloading for
both historic and sporting reasons). Does that go on across the country,
or is it strictly out West?
PS: Almost forgot to answer your question - Try the Log Cabin Shop in
Lodi, Ohio. Their phone number is (216) 948-1082. They have a lot of
clothing, tools, weapons, etc., from the 1700s period. The catalog I have
is old, but I think the number is still good.

Subject: Old time clothes patterns?
Following the thread on old time clothes, does any one know of
pattern makers for the renaissance period to the late 1700's? I am a
cowboy action shooter, (my other hobby), and know of patterns for the
1800's, but I haven't come across things for earlier, besides the
Halloween costumes in McCalls and Simplicity. Can anyone suggest a
catalog or something?
