My name is Alexey and I live in Moscow, Russia. Like many boys since childhood I dreamed about a real cowboy rifle, especially after seeing the “Magnificent seven” movie…. Today, already five years, I have the great pleasure shoot with your Golden boy rifle. And I use my Henry rifle in our fun-shooting project, which would like to tell you few words. am a member and range officer of Russian Practical Shooting federation, member of MLARF – Russian muzzle loading federation. With my friends IPSC-shooters we organized different shooting matches in Moscow (standard IPSC matches, zombie-hunting, night shooting…). But our main and unique project is MKPS – Makhno-Kulak and Partizan Shooting (or just Partisan shooting).
Short history of the project.
In 2006 we saw for the first time the video of Cowboy action shooting on youtube. Most of us have 2-barrel shotguns, but we are hunters, an 99% of time these guns doze in the safe. So we decided to organize some shooting match, similar to CAS, when we can use from time to time our shotguns.
We decided to take historical period from beginning of XX century till the end of 50’ (October revolution 1917, civil war, WW1, WWII). And like CAS is based on a famous western-movies, MKPS use famous Russian movies as well as westerns. Actually the name of federation – is only word game, and the mention of Makhno and Kulaks has nothing to do with our political views еtc– but only used to refer to the historical period. For 8 years as we do this project and it has found its fans and even the followers. Similar partisan matches are held in St. Petersburg and Voronej.
On behalf of all shooters-participants of our project, I want to thank you for the magnificent rifle, which is admired by all peoples at shooting range.
With best regards from Moscow,
