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

Covid-19 and the Cavalier Cowboys

Uncategorized Comments Off on Covid-19 and the Cavalier Cowboys
Today I received an email from the Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club which reads;
In light of strong recommendations from the CDC and the President, the Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club Board of Directors has voted to postpone all scheduled matches and meetings at Cavalier until further notice.  The Cavalier range remains open for individual members.
 
The Rivanna Shooting Club in Charlottesville has also enacted the same measures at their club. This means that the Cavalier Cowboys monthly and the Gunfight at the Double-C are a no go at this time. I will wait a month or so to see how we can reschedule for this year. If for some reason this doesn’t work out  then a  full refund or prepay for next years match will be done by your request. This is very disturbing news but also a no brainer because my friends health is far more important than a shooting match.

Hello Everyone
 
What a lovely day to shoot a match. We had nine shooters enjoying the great weather but unfortunately we couldn’t muster up one clean shooter. I guess no one is used to shooting yet without shivering a little. A special shout out to Black Jack Bill who shot with us today and also a big thanks to Mrs. Dude who kept score.
 
Thanks Yawl for all the help:
Major BS Walker

Hello Cowboys and Cowgirls
 
We might of had warmer temps today but we also had stronger winds so it felt cold all day. That didn’t deter a bunch of cowpokes from slinging some lead down range though. Congrats to Bingo Montana, Kuba Kid & Ripsaw for being our clean shooters and Ripsaw being our top shooter today. Well he did write the match. I would also like to shout out to Rapidan River Rat that shot his first ever Cowboy match today at Cavalier and did a great job under all that pressure. Just to let everyone know that wasn’t around, I was there today but did nothing but post scores on two different other scoring systems. Now I know how little I have to do with everyone else’s help. Don’t forget to sign up for the Gathering on the Mattaponi and while your at it please send in your registrations to the Gunfight at the Double-C.
 
Enjoy :
Major BS

Just a reminder that the match Sunday will be over well before the Super Bowl kick off. It will also be a good time to bring your registration to the Gunfight at the Double-C and save yourself a stamp. I will be there as an onlooker. Setup will be Saturday at 3:30 if you can help.
 
Thanks: MBSW
 

 
Hello Everyone
 
This Sunday is the Super Bowl. The pre game show’s starts at 12 noon and kickoff isn’t until 6:30. That’s wright 6:30. Who would you want to spend all day listening to predictions of who’s going to win when you can be a winner yourself. The Cavalier Cowboys are having their 1st Sunday of the month Super Bowl match. Match starts at 10:00 and is always over, torn down and put away before 3:00. We even have time to eat Mexican and then be home in time to watch the game. Sounds like a good plan to me. Stages were written by Mr. Ripsaw.
 
See you Sunday
Major BS Walker

Hello Everyone
A little on the cold side today but now everyone is at home warm and cozy. I would like to welcome our future new shooter to the posse who watched his first match today Todd Wright who now has the CAS alias Rapidan River Rat. Hope you enjoyed yourself. We had five clean shooters today which is a far cry better than our last match where we had none. Our clean shooters to start off 2020 are Bingo Montana, Enid City Kid, Kuba Kid, One Eyed Jane and myself. Want to thank everyone for all their hard work to hold this match. With people like you, I know that 2020 will be the best year ever.
 
Thanks Again:
Major BS Walker

1st Sunday Match — December 1st, 2019

Hello Everyone
 
The Cavalier Cowboys will be having their regular first Sunday of the month match this Sunday which is Dec.1st. Safety briefing at 9:45 with first shot at 10:00. That is just 3 days after Thanksgiving so I know some of you will be away. For that reason we will only shoot in one bay. That will also help with the heaters and the fire barrel. Smackwater has written a fun match for our Cavalier Christmas. Setup will be Saturday at 3:30 if you would like to help out. (Note) Just a reminder that with Sunday being the 1st, then the hole months shooting schedule will be flip flopped. If the weather turns out to bad than a follow up email will be sent. Stages attached.
 
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ‘YALL’

Hello Gang
 
I haven’t been able to fix the problem yet but my iPad won’t send the results to my email. Anyway, yesterday was about as cold of a day to shoot as you would want, upper 20’s at start and around 34 by finish.The three of us that shot never got cold (long john’s rule)but we did have to contend with cold hands. For that reason we had no clean shooters. The order of placement was Major BS, Lefty Spurmaker, Bingo Montana.
PS: My experimental stage will be canned.
 
Thanks:

Hello Pards and Pardetts
 
The Cavalier Thanksgiving festivities are over and here is a quick run down of the event. As you all know, it was quite cool all day but at least it was sunny. I guess it’s better to have turkey instead of duck because the duck grease on everyone’s hands keep us from having one clean shooter. We should of supplied handi-wipes I guess. Slick fingers didn’t hamper anyone from having fun though. Thanks for everyone’s help, your work efforts are equal to no other. Results attached.
 
P.S.
Gunfight at the Double-C information will be appearing next month.
Thanks Again:
Major B.S. Walker
 
 

 
Hello Cowboys & Cowgirls
 
The Cavalier Cowboys invites everyone to shoot their Thanksgiving match this Sunday Nov. 3, 2019. No, we are not serving turkey at the cowboy social. Weather so far says sunny but cold. Mid 30’s in the morning with highs in the mid 50’s so don’t forget a coat and also don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour because it’s the end of daylight savings time. You get an extra hour to sleep in so don’t be late. First shot down range at 10:00. Setup for the match will start Saturday at 4:00 if you can help. We have a new target to break in so help us do it right. Stages are attached written by that BS fella.
