Cowboy and Western Action Shooting is a multifaceted amateur shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West: single action revolvers; lever action rifles; and side by side double barreled, pre-1899 pump, or lever action shotguns. The shooting competition is staged in a unique, characterized, Old West style.
The truly unique aspect of Cowboy and Western Action Shooting is the requirement placed on authentic period or western screen dress. Each participant is required to adopt a shooting alias appropriate to a character or profession of the late 19th century, or a Hollywood western star, and develop a costume accordingly.
Our matches are held the second Sunday of each month. We have a short Safety meeting at 8:30 and the posse assignments and shooting starts after the meeting.

Next scheduled match is December 09, 2018 followed by Fort Tyler luncheon in Archery Building.
