Old West re-enactor faces federal weapons charge

Published 07/28/2011, The Jamestown Sun

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — An Old West gun battle re-enactor who injured three South Dakota tourists when live ammunition was fired instead of blanks faces a federal weapons charge because he should not have been carrying a gun since he’s a convicted felon, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. The tourists were hit during the June 17 reenactment staged by the Dakota Wild Bunch, who use blanks when they perform several times a week on a street in Hill City, a tourist town in South Dakota’s Black Hills.
