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 – July 3rd 2022

Hello All

Was a nice day for shooting weather wise with the pop-up’s and the fans going. Was a nice day for shooting people wise with such a hard working and happy crowd.Great to see how many showed off their Hawaiian Cowboy Spirit and thanks to all that chipped in on supplying all the vittles afterwards. We did have four Clean All Day Shooters out of nineteen trying desperately to do so. The four lucky ones were the dynamic duo of Miss One Eyed Jane and Prairie City Slim, also Enid City Kid and that Major BS fellow.
Don’t forget to send in your State Registrations. It will be here sooner than you think
Thanks Again

After the match to celebrate your company, we will be cooking on the grill. Bringing a cover dish to share would be appreciated but not required.
If you do wish to add something then just email or call me so we don’t end up with four bowls of pork-n- beans creating a Blazing Saddles campfire moment. Stages attached provided by Mr. Smackwater.
See you on Sunday:

2nd Wednesday Match – April 13th – Starting at 11AM!

Hello Cowpokes

Well, we actually had to contend with sweating today. What a change from just this past weekend. We were all privileged today to have momma and papa Stith  join us with their sons to shoot their first ever Cowboy match. Two Buckaroos joined the ranks today, Dirt Shooter and Benie the Kid with their 22’s pistols and rifle blazing. With the help of some low noise, low recoil 12gauge shells they both handled that equally as well. These two youngsters handled themselves as true young gentlemen. The smiles on these youths’ faces are priceless. Parents will be joining the sport shortly.  We even shot the motorized star and the boys knocked most plates off with the 22 rifles. Thanks to everyone for their assistance with everything today and mentoring the boys.
