What Is Cowboy Shooting?
Cowboy shooting is a gathering of people who want to have fun shooting the old-style firearms used by the cowboys both real and film heroes. We shoot lead bullets at metal targets using shotgun, rifle, and pistol.
Is Period Clothing Required?
Jeans and a long sleeve shirt would be a good start. Eventually hats, boots, scarves, spurs, chaps can all be added. Cowboy hats are recommended to protect you from the hot brass.
Do I Need Everything to Start Shooting Cowboy?
It is best if you come to a shoot BEFORE you go out and buy equipment. There are so many styles and choices to be made it is an advantage to come and try a few before spending a lot of money.
Is Membership Required? What are the Fees?
Of course, we recommend you become a member of Pathfinders and you can get a discount by signing up for the year for $45 if you are a member. Otherwise shoots cost $10 per person, youth shooters 17 and younger are free.
Do I Need an Alias?
Yes, everyone shoots under a Cowboy style alias.
When Do You Shoot
We are scheduled to shoot the first Sunday of the month from April to November (weather permitting). On the preceding Saturday we set up the stages and invite new shooters to come and try out a stage or two without the pressures of an actual competition. .
