And you though LARPers were nerds…

I hate to sound judgemental, but wow – a whole society/club/organization that is centered around re-enacting the Wild West? Call me crazy, but if I were to get into something like this I’d be more interested in the shooting part of it, not the costume/dressing up part.

If you don’t know what LARPing is, that’s Live Action RolePlaying..which, come to think of it, is almost like this SASS thing, except the weapons LARPers use are much lamer looking and couldn’t actually kill anyone. And it’s set in a fantasy/mythological setting, which, of course, is far less geeky than the Wild West.
