Newbie saying hi
« on: June 06, 2018, 02:52:14 PM »
Hi everyone

I've been reading the forum for a while and thought I should say Hi as I've just registered here. I plan to start shooting WB shortly. I came and watched the matches at Winter Range which confirmed I wanted to get involved in this side of the Cowboy Action Shooting.

I've got myself setup with a 97 in 12 Gauge with a 20" barrel, a 73 in .45 colt with a 24 " barrel and a Les Baer that i already had.

I think my local club holding WB matches is out at Cowtown in Phoenix

JTS, welcome!  ;D sounds like you got the guns covered. go ahead and get some Tripp’s magazines if you don’t have enough yet. If you have any questions about WB this is the place for correct answers. Does the Cowtown club shoot WB monthly? Dusty B

Hi Jerry

Welcome.  Cowtown has great Wild Bunch matches the second Sunday of the month.  Just tell them you are new and the great folks out there will give you a hand.

Cowtown Wild Bunch matches are now held on the 4th Sunday of the month except months with conflicting schedules like this month with EOT.
Jerry, come on out and shoot with us. We have a really good group of WB shooters and have a ton of fun. We will help you with whatever you need to get started.

Well - I shot my first WB match on Sat and had an absolute blast !

I'll certainly be back and getting involved.

Thanks to all at Cowtown who helped me through the match reminding me to Lever the rifle and Pump the shotgun (first time shooting either of these loading methods apart from the testing of the guns when I got them).

Congratulations, JTS!  Sounds like you are hooked.  Wild Bunch and the 1911 are a hoot aren't they?  Compared to  Cowboy, both are good, WB offers more pistol shooting - Sliding instead of revolving.  Praise be to John Browning and pass the ammo!
Run - Hide - Call?  Forget it !  Draw - Aim - Shoot

We all really enjoyed you shooting with us. For your first WB match you did really well.
Once you get all the WB basics down you will be a contender.  ;)
Look forward to shooting WB again on the 22nd of this month.
