Rand60 check out our website at Cutter's Raiders there will be info on our matches. If you get a chance, come by on the first Saturday of each month for our shoots. We would be glad to answer any of your questions. In short, you need 2 center fire single action revolvers, one lever action rifle usually in the same caliber as the handguns. Rifle has to be in pistol caliber. 1 shotgun in a double barrel or a winchester model 1897 which is a pump. If you are short equipment to start with, most times someone will loan the needed equipment. So don't let not having everything to start with stop you. We are located in the northcentral part of the state, if that is too far for you, there are other clubs all over the state. Just let us know where you live, we can let you know where the nearest club is. good luck.
