WELCOME TO SASS!!!

When you were a kid did you play Cowboys and Indians? At night did you dream about rounding up a posse to go after the cattle rustlers? Would you become the deciding factor in a stagecoach holdup or gun battle? If you did then you probably grew up watching Westerns, either at the movie theater or as I did on TV.

The Western has been around for a long time. The cowboy became the main figure early in the history of Western film and remains its most enduring feature. The cowboy in the western was self-reliant, working dawn to dusk, who braved the elements expecting no more than freedom and independence in meeting the challenge of frontier life.

Unfortunately there were other freedom loving individuals that thought working dawn to dusk was a poor way to obtain the fruits of labor. These individuals found that cattle rustling or robbing the odd stagecoach was an easier way to get cash so they could spend time in saloons drinking whiskey or in the company of "dance hall girls". Many villains were easy to identify (look for the  black hat).

Now the honest hardworking cowpoke didn't appreciate the activities of your average cattle rustler or horse thief.  This would usually led to an altercation. Unfortunately your average good ol cowpoke didn't spend enough time practicing shooting for the occasion he may need to confront a gang of bad guys. After he is shot, the sheriff is called in to take care of the bad guys. The sheriff will probably have practiced his shooting more than the average cowpoke. Because of this and the fact that he has more experience with bad guys he will usually come out ok after a gun fight.

Now if you don't want to end up as our unfortunate (rip) cowpoke or you are planning on doing some posse duty you should get down to the Winnipeg Revolver and Pistol Association and get involved in Cowboy Action Shooting.
