I've mentioned this before; Back (many many years ago) Ol' Red brought a Colt Walker to Rendezvous one year. Anyway he set up a "Dimond Jim" card cheat shoot with it - and even had a Diamond Jim upper body cut out in the opposite chair (across from you where you sit)...

Anyway, on the command you had to pick up that Walker Colt (with one hand) that was next to you on the table, and shoot (while setting) ol' Diamond Jim 'cause he was a card cheat! Now that was a fun shoot and although I wasn't but maybe 4 feet from ol' Diamond Jim - I nailed him in the heart and won the match... Good time, good fun, and quite the "roar" of that revolver.
