Newcomers are welcome at our third Saturday match. Plan to observe the match to learn the rules and routine, but not shoot your first time, and then stay afterward for personal gun familiarization training using either your or the match director's guns. Be sure to bring eye protection with side shields, as we shoot steel plates at close range.International rules are posted.
What is Cowboy Action Shooting?
Cowboy Action Shooting is a multi-faceted shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West era of 1865 to 1895: single action revolvers, pistol caliber lever action rifles and double barreled side by side, or pre-1899 pump or lever action shotguns.
The shooting competition is staged in a unique, characterized, "Old West" style. Clothing attire and accoutrements that reflect this period of the American West are strongly encouraged. Courses of fire are shot in stages that change each month, fired on fixed or reactive steel targets. Scoring is based on accuracy and overall time used to shoot the stage.
What's the schedule?
Matches are on the 3rd Saturday. See Sportsmen's Club Schedule of Events for match dates. We occasionally cancel for weather, so be sure to call or email the day before. Set-up begins at 9:00 in the summer and 10:00 in the winter. We meet down in the pistol pits, so drive through the first gate (west of the building) and down the road.
