First, you must be a shooter or you wouldn't be here. Remember the TV shows like Rawhide, Gunsmoke, Bonanza and others? Interested in a flair for the Old West? Then, readon!
WSA's newest program - CowboyActionShooting- a 3-gun event at our Black Powder Range.
All you need to get started is a six-shooter, a scatter gun and/or a cowboy rifle (all described below).If you're really interested, suit up with all 3 guns, add western-style clothing,leather, boots, a stetson hat and more for the cowboy charm. CAS has been'brewin' for a couple of years out West and is now starting in clubs 'backEast'. Cowboy Jim Larkin is our CAS program director.
For each gun in the 3-gun program, there is a specific course of fire - see below. You can enter one or more of the events depending on which guns you have. Oh, youdon't just shoot at paper targets. You shoot at real hard steel - thatrings or falls down when hit. That adds a little gratification to the game.Drop on over to the Black Powder Range on Saturday morning (that's whenit runs) & check it out.
Here at WSA we are just "getting our feet wet" with Cowboy Action Shooting. Our saturday morning shoots are mostly informal practice sessions. Cowboy clothing is optional, butALL S.A.S.S. AMMUNITION REQUIREMENTS AND SAFETY RULES APPLY! We are here to have fun, but safety is paramount. Anyone thinking of participating should read the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) below before coming outto the range. It might save you the frustration of being told that yourgun or ammunition are unsuitable and can't be used. The Range Marshallhas the final say on what is and isn't legal for this activity.
