Hadji Abdullah from Jolo, Philippines was given a Krag rifle from President Taft. I haven't read much about him yet, but he is very photogenic.

That would be a distinctive look for KCA Members shooting at Camp Perry - Vintage Matches!

Mattress Ticking cloth, for trousers, is cheap at "Joanne's Fabric".

Must have been a rough time of unrest. Besides the Krag and Krag ammo, he has a heavy revolver with lots of ammo and a long sword or machete!
Maybe he was going on a bear hunt?

I can not see it, but I wonder if he has the bayonet and I am just missing it?

Looks like he has a Moro sword in a scabbard which has a distinctive hilt that you can see above his belt.

That's some fine metal work!

'Hadji', himself, is probably all of 85 pounds of 'spring steel'.

You would not want him 'fired up' on Hemp and pissed-off at you!

Here's a photo of some arms captured from the Moros and a Moro member of the Philippine Constabulary.

NO WAY am I dressing like this for Perry... 

Unless... 




A lot of others join me in shooting AND wearing the required (ridiculous) stripped trousers too!

Hmmmm  Barefooted and turbin headed...  Boy oh boy would I be a sight!  LOL

Now a fez... THAT's an idea!  Steely Dan has a song called The Fez - "Don't never want to do it without the fez on..."  Of course, I think Donald Fagen and Walter Becker were referring to something else - a latex hat for a different part of the body!  LOL

Hi Paul,

Along with the fez...I think the Kris sword would be necessary to truly complete the ensemble...here's a beauty that you could own for the right price:

(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

My understanding is that the more waves, up the length of the sword, indicate the owners standing in the pecking order food chain...and this one has waves going all the way to the top!

Hey, as an after thought, maybe you can call your Krag competition rifle "Steely Dan" and have the name engraved on the receiver or carved in the stock.  Sure would make you stand out from the rest...or maybe they wouldn't want to be around a guy with a rifle named "Steely Dan"  Undecided
