After considerable thought and discussion, we have decided to add another decade to our sport, the 1940s! Has your imagination been leading you to a later time in US history than what the AZSA currently offers? Now you can update your costumes and add a few more guns to your collection! If thoughts of wearing zoot suits and shooting M1 Thompsons made you feel a little out of place for the 1930s,
it is now a moot point. The zoot suit is now unarguably correct and so is a WWII era Tommy Gun. Please keep in mind that we are not a military reenactment sport and we encourage our participants to think “cops and robbers”. That being said, and by no means to disrespect veterans, do not dress in military costume unless it reflects an American police action. Zoot Shooters, welcome to the era of Bugsy Siegal, Las Vegas, big bands, noir films and sexy automobiles! Updates to our rules to reflect this change will happen soon.
