    Cowboy Action in Upstate SC

    We’ve had slightly lower temperature and humidity this week that should continue into the weekend for the Greenville Gunfighters’ match on Sunday, July 28. I’m switching back to “Frontier Cartridge” category which adds to the fun and the challenge. The SC State Match will be held at the...

    Cowboy Action Shooting in Belton

    I just got word that the June match is off. Expecting heavy rain all weekend. Too bad, there would have been several people getting in one more local match before the World Championships in New Mexico. And yes, we have local shooters who have won world championships in their category.

    Wild Bunch match in Greenville on June 23, 2019

    We are planning a five Stage Wild Bunch match which will be at the same time as the monthly cowboy Action match. We will be on separate bays from the cowboy shooters. We do it right because “Wild Bunch is not cowboy shooting with a 1911”.

    Cowboy Action Shooting in Belton

    The April match was rained out (“April showers bring May flowers”, after all) but they are gearing up for this Saturday in Belton. We had two Belton Gun Club members “try their hand” in March, and one of those fellows “got the bug” and has purchased gear. There is another prospective new...

    3.5 inch 6-shooter

    Let’s see..a single action revolver and a 1911. You need to come out to a cowboy match and the 1911 is what we use in Wild Bunch.

    Carolinas Wild Bunch Shootout

    That’s very common. The good news is that most groups are happy to help new shooters. Everyone there was in your shoes at one time. If a club in your area holds Steel Challenge matches, that is a great introduction to competitive shooting. The game is pretty easy to understand and you can...

    Wild Bunch match on March 24

    We have our targets set up for the match. It should be fun and challenging but not grueling. Some Wild Bunch matches use a lot of reactive steel that is fun to shoot but it takes a lot of work to reset targets after each shooter completes the stage. I think we have a good balance in this match.

    Cowboy Action Shooting in Belton

    The Belton Gun Club has built new shooting bays near the shotgun fields. They are covered with fresh gravel and should do a good job draining rainwater. Last Saturday was the first cowboy match in the new bays and it went well. The club uses these bays for other disciplines like IDPA, Steel...

    Favorite Shotgun

    On the assumption that “favorite” means a shotgun that I own, as opposed to one that I’d like to own; I’d say the SKB 100 side by side. It was a very nice bird Gun when I bought it. Now it’s cut down and slicked up for cowboy shooting.

    Cowboy Action in Upstate SC

    I have been shooting SASS cowboy matches since early 2010. There are two SASS-affiliated clubs in Upstate South Carolina that host monthly matches. Matches are open to the public-you need not be a member of the “host” club or a member of SASS to shoot monthly matches. There is no charge for...

    Wild Bunch match on March 24

    The Greenville Gunfighters’ March monthly match on Sunday March 24, 2019 will feature, alongside the cowboy action match, a Wild Bunch Action Shooting match. See my prior thread for a fuller description but Wild Bunch is like Three Gun, but using guns from 1913. This is our first match after...
