    The Wild Bunch Event at BCR

    If you’ve seen the 1969 western movie The Wild Bunch, starring William Holden, Ernest Borgnine and Robert Ryan, you have an inkling of what this shoot is all about. Using the same western backdrops as for their traditional old west shoots, Oregon Trail Rough Rider (OTRR) members give up their six-guns and use more modern firearms as seen in The Wild Bunch. These include the Colt M1911 semiauto pistol, the Winchester Model 1897 pump shotgun and the Winchester Model 1912 pump shotgun.
