In this 2-Gun match, I am competing as a WWI US infantryman, with an M1917 Eddystone rifle and an M1911 pistol (both are genuine WWI-era originals). I am also using a reproduction US 1917 uniform from Mike's Militaria. It's a fantastic quality reproduction, made from the same patterns and materials as the originals, and custom tailored to fit.

Ultimately I placed 50 out of 60 shooters - not bad for shooting against almost exclusively semiauto rifles! The more I shoot the M1917 rifle, the more I like it - although heavy, it is excellent in every other way. The 1911 is an iconic pistol, but does leave something to be desired. The hammer bite left my hand bloody, but it did get the job done.
