Welcome to the Home of the Cavalier Cowboys.

The Cavalier Cowboys are a Cowboy Action Shooting Club based near Montpelier, Virginia. We are associated with the Cavalier Rifle & Pistol Club which is where we hold our matches. We shoot on the 1st Sunday and 2nd Wednesday of every month, with some exceptions. The Cavalier Cowboys are a SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) Affiliated Club, we are governed by and operate our matches under all SASS Rules.

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

1st Sunday Match — October 4th, 2020

Hello Everyone
What great weather to shoot a match. Needed a jacket in stage one then tada. just nice. I guess the rest of you were tied up with honey – do things.
This was an especially good day for Mr, Smackwater  because it was his return match after having Cataract Surgery and he shot it Clean All Day along with Enid City Kid, I guess with the starting line “That’s Pretty Bold Talk For a One eyed Fat Man” that one eyed fat man came through. Thanks for all the help with set-up and tear down.Results attached.
You guys and gals rock:

2nd Wednesday Match — August 12th, 2020

Well Hello Everyone

The weatherman lied again, was supposed to be 92 to 95 with a humidity factor of around 100 with thunderstorms. That never happened. Instead it was 82 overcast and with the fans it was quite comfortable. Did hear a rumble or two of thunder but had no storms. All this comfy weather didn’t help us shooters much except for Mr. Bingo who not only was our only clean all day shooter but won the whole match.With the State match canceled we will hold our regular 1st Sunday match as usual.

Thanks everyone and stay healthy:

Cavalier Wednesday Match Aug 12-2020

1st Sunday Match — August 2nd, 2020

Hello everyone
I hope the canopies and fans were enough to make today bearable. I guess it was bearable enough for our three clean all day shooters, Hotshod, Bucksaw Bob and Flatboat Bob.  What a great bunch of hard working cowboys and cowgirls that came out today. You make a match seem so easy. Results attached.
Thanks guys and I hope you enjoyed the match
Major BS Walker

1st Sunday Match — July 5th, 2020

Happy 4th of July everyone
Just because it was hot and humid it didn’t take away from the fun and frolic we all shared being together today. Glad you all  could attend. Special thanks to Smackwater for not only writing the match for today but also for handling the cooking choirs afterwards. Mr. Dough Boy shot his first Cavalier match and we hope to see him again. We could only sweat out two clean all day shooters with the heat and that was Mr. Potter County Kid and some BS fellow. Thanks to everyone for all the help with the match.
