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 or 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 – June 4th 2023

Hello Fellow Lead Slinging Enthusiasts

Well sixteen of us sure slung some today, with five clean all day shooters to boot. Miss Jane, Kuba, Bucksaw, Ripsaw and I squeaked them all on target. Mr. Cody took home the trophy. If you could of shot this match today, you would join us in a  standing ovation to Ripsaw for writing it. Top notch.
The other news – It’s not too late to sign up for the Smoke on the Mattaponi to be held in a couple of weeks so please do so.

1st Sunday Match – May 7th 2023

Howdy Cowpeople

Despite the flood, the wild fire, the Indian attacks, the stampede and having to shoot your crippled horse, the Cavalier Cowboys managed to conjure up a match today while I was in North Carolina getting my butt kicked. Speaking of kicked butt, Mr. Ripsaw held in there while he was as sick as a dog so this match could happen. I hope everyone had a good time and helped feed the pig. I hope our out of town shooters had a good time despite the setbacks. There were no clean shooters today 😟. Results attached.
There will be another match this Wednesday. Stages will be sent out tomorrow.

2nd Wednesday Match – March 8th

Hello Dudes and Dudesses
The laid back bad guys at Cavalier managed to pull off their first 2023 Wednesday match. It warmed up about 4 degrees more than the weatherman guessed and with light winds it was quite pleasant. Everyone seemed to have problems with some WTF stages so we had NO clean shooters. It was still a fun day. Cavaliers next match will be Sunday, April 2nd. It’s not too late to sign up for Gathering on the Mattaponi next weekend. Email or call so you can be added.

Today’s results are attached.
