You DO NOT have to be a member of either Cavalier Rifle & Pistol Club nor SASS to shoot with us, everyone is welcome to join us as our guests.

NEW Shooters are Welcome and Encouraged!!  If you have ever wondered how much fun it is too dress up like a cowboy and shoot 1800 era pistols, rifles and shotguns at steel targets then COME ON OUT and find out!! New Shooters need to have observed a full match (at Cavalier or elsewhere) before shooting their first match.

Thanks, Major B.S. Walker

Hello Pards and Pardetts
 
The Cavalier Thanksgiving festivities are over and here is a quick run down of the event. As you all know, it was quite cool all day but at least it was sunny. I guess it’s better to have turkey instead of duck because the duck grease on everyone’s hands keep us from having one clean shooter. We should of supplied handi-wipes I guess. Slick fingers didn’t hamper anyone from having fun though. Thanks for everyone’s help, your work efforts are equal to no other. Results attached.
 
P.S.
Gunfight at the Double-C information will be appearing next month.
Thanks Again:
Major B.S. Walker
 
 

 
Hello Cowboys & Cowgirls
 
The Cavalier Cowboys invites everyone to shoot their Thanksgiving match this Sunday Nov. 3, 2019. No, we are not serving turkey at the cowboy social. Weather so far says sunny but cold. Mid 30’s in the morning with highs in the mid 50’s so don’t forget a coat and also don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour because it’s the end of daylight savings time. You get an extra hour to sleep in so don’t be late. First shot down range at 10:00. Setup for the match will start Saturday at 4:00 if you can help. We have a new target to break in so help us do it right. Stages are attached written by that BS fella.

Hello Cowboy Action Shooters

Well the weatherman lied, it didn’t even get as hot as he said. Just about a perfect day for shooting you could have. It could of only been better if Will Sonnet could of been there to enjoy it with us. He will surely be missed by all and I feel privileged to have known the man. We had a silent prayer today for him. Thank you Sassy and Cotton Connie for keeping us informed. We did manage to have thirteen shooters participate today with only two managing to shoot a clean match, Cockroach and Dude Slade which happened to be Dude’s first ever CAD match. Congratulations.


Thanks for all the help today:

Hello Cowboys & Cowgirls
 
The Cavalier Cowboys pulled off another great weather day today. With the fans and the shade on the left range, it really never felt that hot. We had nine shooters today and three CAD. That’s 33% folks. Those shooters were Myself, Timbuctwo Ranger and our newer shooter Bingo Montana. A special thank you to Smackwater for handling things until I could arrive from my Doctors appointment, Ripsaw for writing the match and not to forget thanks to all the guys there for all the work effort at the match today. Results are attached.

Hello Cowboys & Cowgirls
 
Sorry that I missed the match on Sunday but I was busy fending off other Silver Seniors at the state match. At no surprise,I hear everything went well and everyone had a good time. There were a few spectators yesterday and hopefully since I wasn’t there, they will come back. We had three clean shooters, Cockroach, Enid City Kid and Kuba Kid.
 
Thanks to everyone for running the match and doing the chores

Well I just got home from dinner. Salmon cakes, baked sweet potato and spoon bread, a truly southern boy meal. Now it’s time for some results. First of all,thanks for shooting with us today. The canopies and fans makes it all bearable. We had four clean shooters today, Lawman Mays, Lefty Spurmaker  Potter County Kid and myself. Everyone else is just SH out of LU. I would also like to send out a welcome to our new first match ever shooter, Bingo Montana. Everyone will start seeing him in the future if Cockroach didn’t scare him away. Also, a special thanks to Ripsaw for writing the match today and thanks to all for your help.

We shot a fun match today. Mr. Ripsaw stopped by and helped keep score. It was really nice to see him and to hear how well his healing is progressing. Hopefully Greywolf and Remo are progressing as well as Ripsaw. Our thoughts are with you all. We had no clean shooters today, just fun.

Sorry for the late scores but I had to honey do after I got home. If we could only of had a little breeze today it would of helped. Despite the warm temperatures, I think the match went really well. We only managed to have two clean shooters though. Those two lucky people were Ms.One Eyed Jane and Mr.Lawman Mays. Was really nice to see some KC’s folks stop on buy.The picnic afterword’s was the icing on the cake.
Thanks to Smackwater and Windhorse Rider for cooking it up. Thank you to all that attended for your work effort with all the help you provided  that is needed at a match. If you can manage it, we will shoot again this Wednesday starting at noon. Scores are attached.
 
Until we meet again:

Hello Boys and Girls
 
The Cavalier Cowboys will be having their first Sunday of the month match this Sunday July 7th. Gates open at 8:00, safety briefing at 9:45 and first shot down range at 10:00. Because of the heat, this will be a relaxed dress or Cowboy Casual match. This Sunday is also our annual 4th of July match so try to wear something patriotic and when we are done, we will be cooking on the grill so free food with paid participation. Just bring ammo and appetite. A cover dish would also be appreciated.
