It looks like Barry is shooting a low wall. Does anybody know what caliber it was in?

Here is another picture that appears to be taken at the same time and place and it appears Barry is holding the same rifle in his hands.
This picture is on the cover of the Single Shot Rifle Journal May / June 2008. Vol. 61, No.3.  Inside the cover it states from Left to Right Barry Darr holding a Winchester Low Wall in 32-40. Chuck Bordman holding his Winchester Hi Wall in 32-40 and Lenny Garret with his Winchester Thick Side in 38-55. Year 1982 and from the second Coors Schuetzenfest. The picture was sent in by Joe Gussenhoven.

The first Coor's schuetzenfest was held in 1982. Perhaps this was taken in 1983, the same year as the first photograph.

Just passing on what was stated in the Journal pretty much word for word.

So in 1982 the dates would have been Saturday through Friday and in 1983 Sunday through Saturday. Anyone remember which it was?

     I remember being there, and remember having people sign a target, and taking a lot of photographs, but I'm afraid no help on the days. As someone once said, we will be friends till were old and senile, and then we will be new friends.                                  
      wish I knew how to post photos, as I still have a lot from 1982. One of these days I may catch on to this new way of doing things, but kind of still like to do some things the old way. Like shooting old guns, and using a film camera.

I have photographed both the Peabody and the Ballard with the frog engraving. It is obvious that there were two different engravers. The Peabody has very fine engraving and because the rifle had bad storage the engraving is very hard to photograph. I believe I took the photo shown. The Ballard has much heavier engraving, it is in my collection. I have seen some very unusual Ballard engraving including two "White Elephant" rifles with elephants on them. The Denver club: the rifle Peterson is holding I believe I photographed in a collection. It has ivory panels and is marked "Peterson."

1902, New Braunfels Schuetzen Verein while shooting at a match in San Antonio, Texas. 
118 years ago this weekend.

Please note that on the right side of the pictures are a brass bed frame, pitcher and basin and other items that were prizes.

Tom,
I have emailed you the picture before resizing and other documents for you to use at your discretion.
I would be proud to have it included in one of your books.
Scott

Somebody here once commented on Peterson being unexpectedly strong for a man his size.  If at age 85 he could still shoot that Borchardt off-hand in a match, I'd say that strength was not exaggerated.

I like collecting and shooting old target rifles.

When it comes to pictures I'll take the new digital cameras over the old film cameras.

Westerner - I have one digital Nikon camera, and it has a lot of features that make it very friendly to use, but, I still like my Canon FTBQL that I bought on our honeymoon to Japan. Some nostalgia I guess. Even more so now that Joanie is gone. That trip was in 1972, and that camera still purrs right along after a lot of years of hard usage. The verdict is still out on the longevity of the Nikon. Same for me!! The big difficulty is finding film and getting it developed. The price I pay, just like I do for old rifles and scrounging up components.

Still have my Pentax MX in the bag with all the goodies. Once I got onto digital never looked back. It's a darn miracle what they've done with new cameras.

I'll keep the old MX, not because of sentimental reasons. I just don't get rid of old stuff.  Wink
