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 – January 1st 2023 – New Years Day!

Hello Boys & Girls

Twas a lovely day in the neighborhood. Mid sixties and sunny for the first day of the new year, who would have thought. We did manage to hold a decent match today with 21 people either being hung over, sleep deprived or both. That didn’t seem to bother anyone when it came to having to engage the Ferris Wheel on stage three. I’m guessing Mr. Bingo was the only one to stayed sober and got some sleep because he was the only CAD shooter. Thanks all for all your help and being such a fun group to ride with.

1st Sunday Match – December 4th, 2022

Hello Cowpokes

The Cavalier Cowboys were blessed today with a superb group of shooters. A bit cold but with the heaters cranking no one seemed to mind much. Someone even managed a warm snack in the process. A special shout out to Which Hand Wade who made his shooting comeback after over a years long recovery from surgery.. Jackass Flats even pulled out some sidearms and gave it a go. All together we had 20 shooters but only had 1 Clean All Day shooter. Congratulations to Mr. Ripsaw for being that 1 CAD shooter and also 1st place overall. Thank you everyone for coming today and doing such a bang up job at assisting with everything. Results linked below..

This Wednesday. Nov. 9th, 2022 we will be shooting our fun match. First shot down range at 11:00. Here is a look at the stages. Hope to see you there.

Thanks:
Major BS
Also, please keep Sassy and Potter in your prayers.  Here is a note from Potter:
“I am asking for prayer support from the cowboy community. Sassy is not improving at all. In fact even with prescribed pain meds she is still in constant pain and is virtually immobile without assistance. Neither of us has worked going on 2 weeks now. Wednesday she has an appointment with a Pain management specialist and are hoping for positive results.
Thank you ,Potter County Kid”

1st Sunday Match – November 6th 2022

Hello Again Boys & Girls

The Cavalier Cowboys managed to pull off another match with really nice weather today. Twas a little on the heated side and so was the shooting.We would like for everyone to take note of our soon to be a regular Cowboy competitor, Mr. Bullfrog Bandido who shot his first match today. Glad to have you ride with us anytime. Speaking of riding, we only had two shooters ride out with a Clean match, that being our good buddy Mr. Bucksaw Bob and the lovely and talented Ms. One Eyed Jane. First time top overall shooter today was also the lovely and talented  Mr. Walker Colt. Thanks Bingo for managing things, Ripsaw for the fine match and to all that attended and handled all the chores.
We will be shooting again this Wednesday 11/9/22 with the first shot down range at 11:00. Stages to be sent out tomorrow.

Note from Bingo: Ripsaw, the best dressed pistoleer since Wild Bill, was incorrectly entered as Silver Senior category and should have been Gunfighter!  Sorry about that Ripsaw.

Hello Again Boys & Girls

Eight Cowboys were lucky enough to shoot up the stages that Bingo left for us today in his absence. Near perfect weather but not near perfect shooting because our only CAD shooter was the new guy, Gentleman George. This is Gentleman George’s first Clean All Day Match. Way to go Pard. Thanks to all that attended and for helping out
