I know that a lot of CAS clubs have their own Western style badge for members. Can any of you provide a good quality (at least 1mb) close up digital photograph of your club badge? Alternatively do you have any old badges lying around that you no longer use? If the price is right I may buy one or two. Please email photographs to [email protected] Thanks in advance.

I have several badges from Clubs I belong to and a couple from Clubs I started and/or helped form. I will try and take pictures today for you. They are not for sale.

Black Canyon Ghost Riders (Colorado), Double R Bar Regulators (California original Roy Rogers Club), British Western Shooting Society (England), Buffalo Creek Cowboys (Colorado), Eldorado Cowboys, (Nevada), Nevada Rangers (Nevada), Carolina Belles (North Carlolina-I was their Guardian Angel), and a Original US Deputy Marshall's Badge, made from US Silver Dollar (circa 1883).

Some more of my 'has-been' info, I guess these sew-on patches will do as badges. Long Island Antique Gun Collectors Assn got started in 1957 when it outgrew a guy's basement. Organized with about 20 members I was in it till 1980 when I retired, it then with about 350 members. L I Black Powder Rifles met for a while to shoot in a gravel pit out on the Island, didn't last long. NMLRA, National Muzzle Loading Rifle Assn has grown a lot since I got awarded Life Member for an article I wrote 1955 about building my own rifle. Texas Gun Collector's Assn, I was a member for a while early '80s.

Hi, guys
The type of badges I'm looking for are those done for shooting clubs or organisations and which are based on Old West designs - see 2 of the 3 below. Picture quality is important as I hope to use them for a magazine article.

Nice badges Kid's got there. I could recognize them as Kid's cause I recognized the fence from his Marlin photos. He's got boards and posts cut to actual dimensions that they are described as! Nice badges ! Nice fence !
