The Territorial Marshals shoot at the Oklahoma City Gun Club host the yearly Land Run, as well as monthly Cowboy Action Shooting matches. If you really want to have fun shooting and enjoy yourself, this is the place. Cowboy Action Shooting is a multifaceted shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West; single action revolvers (calibers .32 to .45), lever action rifles (calibers .25 to .45 long colt), and side-by-side double barrel or pre-1899 pump or lever action shotguns (12, 16 or 20 gauge). One exception, children under 13 are referred to as a Buckaroo and are allowed to use .22s and 410s.
The shooting competition is staged in a unique OLD WEST style. Cowboy attire is required, which is anything from boots and jeans to clothing that personifies a specific western character. For beginners (long sleeved shirts and jeans will do – no tank tops, shorts or ball caps allowed). You will soon discover that part of the fun is the costume and of course the alias. All real Cowboy shooters have an alias (Oklahoma Gunslinger or Flat Top Okie) which should be associated with your costume. You can be a movie star and never have to go to Hollywood. Believe me, this is one sport that is really fun, not for just you, but the whole family.
The Wild Bunch will ride again. This is a specialized variation of our cowboy action shooting that ought to be of interest to a wide range of shooters. It is a combination of SASS Cowboy Action Shooting and Action Shooting with 1911 pistols. The sport uses 1911 pistols (.45 ACP caliber), lever action rifles (1860 to 1899 - .40 caliber or larger), and 1897 pump shotguns (12 gauge). Range set-up is comparable to a normal Cowboy Action Shooting Match.
There are several shooting categories. Some are age and gender based and others are equipment based. There is certainly one that will suit you and provide you with a shooting experience that you'll never forget.
COME ON OUT, bring the whole family, you won't regret it.
