American Zoot Shooters Association is bringing back the Roaring Twenties! AZSA is a multi-gun sport in which participants dress in 1920s-1930s costumes and compete against the clock engaging targets for the best possible score. Zoot Shooters must use firearms that are correct for the time surrounding Prohibition. Costumes may be of any character type reflecting the era (i.e. gangster, law enforcement, flapper, bootlegger, politician, etc.).

Very interesting idea. ¬†Seems like it would be pretty tough to get the perspective perfect unless you could somehow hook your camera up to your computer and have some sort of “live view” and overlay the historical picture with lots of¬†transparency. There must be some programs available to do that… trial and error would just be too tedious.

We had a little fun while trying to light matches with a bullet. Turns out, after we got all our fixturing dialed in, we were able to light multiple matches with a single bullet. A phantom high speed camera helps tell the story. Mythbusters only tried to light one match with a bullet, so we figured we might as well try to push the envelope. I’m sure Jamie and Adam have the budget and time to figure out the perfect curve to stack arrange all the bullets in to light all matches.

The gun of choice for them? The ubiquitous Ruger 10/22 (.22 LR)

Damn I love slow motion footage.
