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

  • Standby!

Sunday 1/2/2022 Match is CANCELLED!

Hello Cowpokes

Sorry all, but due to circumstances beyond my control (the weather) and people’s reluctance to shoot in wet conditions, the Cavalier Match is canceled for tomorrow.
Happy New Year
Major BS Walker


Hello everyone and Merry Christmas,
As most of you know I have been laid up for a while with a back issue, but healing is on the horizon. Though I have not been shooting I have still been working on something and that all panned out today. As of today, The Gunfight at the Double-C, the Cavalier Cowboys two-day Club Championship Match held every April will no longer happen. Now, here in Central VA the Cavalier Rifle & Pistol Club in Montpelier VA and the Cavalier Cowboys have officially been awarded as the location to host the 2022 SASS Virginia State Championship Match to be held on Labor Day weekend. The new VA State Match will be held on the same dates (September 2-4, 2022) as it always has been in Roanoke in recognition of the fourteen years of hard work they put into the memories I know we all cherish.
Updates to the Cavalier website will be forthcoming after the first of the year with all information and registration forms. I am looking forward to shooting again with all you pards and especially looking forward to shooting with everyone this year at the new SASS Virginia State Championship Match, Gunfight at the Double-C held right here in Central VA. 
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Major BS Walker
Match Director: SASS VA. State Championship


1st Sunday Match – December 5th 2021

Hello Everyone

It started out a little bit on the chilly side this morning but in spite of the chilly day, twenty people packed their coats and made it to the match. Mr. Ripsaw was the top overall shooter today and he and Mr. Potter County Kid were the only two CAD’s. We welcomed a couple of new faces and their families to the lineup today, Renegade Rifleman and Tye Riverman. Hope to see you again. Don’t forget that West Point is having a Cowboy match this Saturday.
Thanks again for everyone’s hard work.
Hopefully healed soon
Major BS Walker

1st Sunday Match – November 7th 2021

Hello Fellow Shooters

While I was away basking in the tropics, the Cavalier Cowboys put on show for everyone braving the cold. 21 shooters froze their buns off but only 2 were hot enough to shoot CAD, Bingo Montana and Ms. One Eyed Jane. Mr. Bingo was on fire today not only writing the match, shooting it clean, and being top overall shooter. Thank you all for your attendance and your work efforts. Results attached below.
You are the best
Thanks Again:

1st Sunday Match – October 3rd, 2021

Hello to all my Cowboy Folks

Major BS Walker here reporting on today’s events. It was sunny today with just a slight amount of warmth. Things did get hot and heavy with the shooting though. After all the heartache and turmoil, four shooters emerged from the ruins clean all day. Those talented individuals were Cody Maverick, Lefty Spurmaker, Hotshod and Tree Doc Red. Speaking of talented individuals, Cody Maverick  was our overall winner. Thanks to all who helped and a special thanks to Bucksaw Bob for being the timer guinea pig today. Cavalier’s next match will be on Wednesday Oct. 13th at 11:00. Results attached somewhere.
Enjoyed : Major BSW

1st Sunday Match — January 3rd, 2021

Hello ALL
The weatherman got it partly right, no rain after 6:00 am so we were high and dry until half way through the 5th stage when it started to mist. It misted hard for the last stage so things were a little damp by the end. No serious problems at all today except for my shooting. We all still had a good time standing around the heater if not shooting. We did have two CAD shooters and they came in first and second overall, that masked crusader  Mr. Ripsaw and his faithful sidekick Bingo Montana. Way to go guys. Speaking of way to go guys, that also rolls over to all the people that helped with the chores. Results are attached somewhere.
Major BS Walker


Weather rain forecast for the Cavalier range Sunday morning is 80% at 6:00, 50% at 8:00, 20% at 10:00, 0% at 12. Match is a go. Rain during the drive but ending by start time. Canopies will be available if needed.

Hope you can make it
