As many of you already know... if you decide to have a go doing in one of them cowboy action shooting type organizations, a big part of the fun, apart for shooting 19th C type shootin' arns, is you dress up in costume and pick a persona name.  An alias.  A moniker.  A name to go by.

It's like those Society for Creative Anachronism geeks playing at the Middle Ages, wearing arm and fighting sword battles with rattan poles for sword, but here you are shooting targets and it's the American Western Frontier, post war.  You still need a name.

What sorta names should someone like me be looking at?  If it has to be unique, I bet Thunderbolt is taken...  Wait maybe not.  There are variants, too, on that.  If someone had T-Bolt, there is Tarnation and Thunderbutter.  &c.

  •  Cornhole Pete
  • Ol' Stanky 
  • Spittoon
  • Milkin Stool (He has 3 legs)
  • Blamazon
  • Union Suit
  • Stumbles
  • Thunderjugs (She's a nice lady...)
  • Catfish
  • Double Down
  • Itchy
  • Plugger
  • Shiner
  • Ribeye
  • TBone
  • Skirt Steak
  • Pumphandle
  • Skunk Kicker
  • Skitter

Heh heh. I'd take "Granny Oakley", with a bow towards Murphy's Law.
