    it's not about how you shoot.
    it's not about how you look.
    it's about how you arrive: 1921 armstrong siddley.
    good luck with it

    Prince Charles at BSA will have everything you need, I go to his shop for the gun selection. I love my SxS's and to me nothing is as eligant as a Model 21 trap with a vent rib. For dress, I'm still scorned from Prep School.

    Yvonnie if your husband is anything like me you could wear his everyday dress clothes and be right back in the 1920's according to my wife description of my wardrobe or find Gary Stevens (Rat Dog) he dresses like that every day

    I LOVE all the suggestions! EXCEPT Old One Eye! HaHa I'm a single gal! I shoot, drive and wear what I want, when I want! NO knickers and Breeks for this gal! I'm going to check out the vintage stores....so far no luck. If not, I'll wear my Shoot The Moon Vest and a SxS Poli.

    Notice how the ladies keep the butt stock on their shoes, that way when they shoulder the gun the dress stays clean.

    If the shoot is say early 1970s vintage... a vinyl mini skirt and halter top would do fine....[Smiley Face]

    Go and enjoy. Wear the long dress and a hat, and make it fun
    Life is an unending adventure if we make it so. It is a lot shorter than we can imagine, so have fun.
    It would be so fun to attend,and some day.........
