Marshall Skull, Duke Duncan and Jesse Wayne came as anew SASS shooters to Cowboy Action. Please welcome Marshall Skull, Duke Duncan, and Jesse Wayne to our club and Cowboy Action Shooting! Thank-you for coming!!


Our day was warm and sunny. We had fun with the scenarios. We hope they all had a good time and would like to come and join us in the future!

June Notes

We did the scenarios that were fun as we moved our gold to the mule, shot the card thief, and shot down the horse thieving gangs. We all seemed to have gun trouble from derringers to long guns, it seemed at least once everyone had to have a reshoot due to weapon malfunction. I hope that everyone’s guns are in good order for next months shoot!

Clean Stage Shooters

This month, Samuel Cy Jesse, had five clean stages and missed getting a white buffalo by one miss! Black Jack Spencer had three clean stages. Windfall Heart, Mac Traven and Wild Horse Mike each had two clean stages. If you see any of them out and about tell them congratulations on a job well done!
