Lovecraft Action Shooting!

Shoot your way through the Cthulhu Mythos? Count me in. Proposed here by Elmo Iscariot, pointed to by the Atomic Nerds, who wrote, "This needs more eyeballs!"

It most certainly does. In several meanings of the phrase.

I wonder how much crossover you might get from the HPLHS gang? (A remarkable source of props, btw).

I say again:
1911
Auto 5
BAR

A JMB (pbuh) trifecta for the HPL win!

DW: My best friend suggested an M2 in place of the BAR.

Other than that, yeah, something about JMB just screams appropriate for this sort of thing.

Much obliged for the pointer.

Have you seen the reports from the HPLHS's old Cthulhu LARPs? They had a game that required the players to get in a helicopter and view the area from above, where they could see that the organizers had arranged a gigantic Nazca-line style arcane glyph that pointed to the burial site of the strange artifact they were looking for.

I'm in awe of those guys.

Colt Police Positive for the first stage, a 12 gauge LeFever Nitro Special for the second, and a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 for the last. I'm not certain about the LeFever, but I know my other two guns were actually made prior to the cut-off date. (Ithaca made the Nitro Special from the 1920s to the early 1940s)
