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

Hello All
 
We shot a fun match today. Mr. Ripsaw stopped by and helped keep score. It was really nice to see him and to hear how well his healing is progressing. Hopefully Greywolf and Remo are progressing as well as Ripsaw. Our thoughts are with you all. We had no clean shooters today, just fun.

Sorry for the late scores but I had to honey do after I got home. If we could only of had a little breeze today it would of helped. Despite the warm temperatures, I think the match went really well. We only managed to have two clean shooters though. Those two lucky people were Ms.One Eyed Jane and Mr.Lawman Mays. Was really nice to see some KC’s folks stop on buy.The picnic afterword’s was the icing on the cake.
Thanks to Smackwater and Windhorse Rider for cooking it up. Thank you to all that attended for your work effort with all the help you provided  that is needed at a match. If you can manage it, we will shoot again this Wednesday starting at noon. Scores are attached.
 
Until we meet again:

Hello Boys and Girls
 
The Cavalier Cowboys will be having their first Sunday of the month match this Sunday July 7th. Gates open at 8:00, safety briefing at 9:45 and first shot down range at 10:00. Because of the heat, this will be a relaxed dress or Cowboy Casual match. This Sunday is also our annual 4th of July match so try to wear something patriotic and when we are done, we will be cooking on the grill so free food with paid participation. Just bring ammo and appetite. A cover dish would also be appreciated.
Stages attached

Hello Everyone
 
What a great day to come out and play. Nice weather seems to elude us so enjoy it while you can. Ripsaw wrote a nice match for us today (not including stage 6) and the clean shooters came out of the woodwork. Enid City Kid, Judge NO Hart, Kuba Kid, Potter County Kid, Sassy Shooting Sours and myself shot Clean All Day. The next Cavalier match will be Wednesday June12, 2019 with first shot down range at high noon.
 
As always, thanks for all the help

Hello Everyone
 
Who would of thunk, raining when I left the house at 8:00, stopped when I got to the range at 8:30, shot the match and had the Cowboy Social, left the range and one hour after arriving home it started to rain. Just doesn’t get much better than that.
 
Thanks for all the help from everyone that shot today, your help is always appreciated. Sorry though, the scores won’t be out until I fix an Ipad glitch which has occurred.
 
Thanks Again:

2019 Gunfight at the Double-C Scores

Gunfight Comments Off on 2019 Gunfight at the Double-C Scores

Here is the overall scores from this weekend. I do hope everyone enjoyed themselves. Please e-mail me with suggestions for next year. Speaking of next year, the Gunfight at the Double-C will be moving to its New Time Slot. We have to make a few small changes to the setup for next year to do this but the Gunfight will now be held on the 4th weekend in April, that being April 25th and 26th in 2020. Six weeks after the Gathering, a couple weeks after Blueridge, a week before Father Time and three weeks before Thunder in the Brush. Now you can shoot them all.
Just can’t pass up this opportunity to once again thank  everyone and to express how much your work and support is appreciated.

Your Pard:
Major B.S.Walker
Match Director
Cavalier Cowboys


 

Well I’m getting close. I couldn’t attach the two results details so you’re getting two e-mails I guess since we only had two clean shooters it seems kind of appropriate. Our only two clean shooters were Flatboat Bob and Enid City Kid. Way to go guys, we are at awe. Please ignore the date under the Match title because it ignores me when I try to change it.

Hello fellow shooters from Major BS. Everything at the range is packed up and put away. I’ve unloaded my truck, plugged the I-pads in to charge and then at 8:00 pm I finally sat down on the bed and started removing my mud stained cowboy clothes. The Gunfight at the Double-C 2019 the Last Words match is in the record books. For those that did not attend you missed a winner. With all the bad weather forecast for the weekend, we got drizzled on for a couple stages on Saturday and dry all day on Sunday. Had just enough shelters set up to stay dry, it was still sort of muggy but we shot all 12 stages. I would like thank everyone that attended this year, for everyone’s assistance with posse duties, for the people who helped set up and tear down everything and for everyone just being you. It’s really nice to have such a respected cowboy family as you provide to me. Congratulations to all the winners but with the computer glitch I caused, I will not be able to send the scores out until tomorrow.

Thanks Again:
Major B.S.Walker

Hello Everyone
What a great day to shoot but between doctor appointments, broken down cars and visiting relatives out of town, it was hard to muster up a sizable group. The four of us that did shoot had as much fun as a dozen. A special shout out welcome to El Diablo Don for stopping by and throwing some lead down range with us today.
Results are attached.
Thanks: Major BSW

Hello Everyone

Like I said in a earlier email, the cavalier Cowboys will be holding their regular 2nd Wednesday of the month match this Wednesday April 10, 2019. Gates open at 10 and first shot down range at noon. All are welcome. Stages for the match are attached.

Thanks: Major BSW

 

Hello Boys & Girls

Back by popular demand, we will be holding our Cowboy Social at the range after Sundays match. If you can’t make the match on Sunday then you still have time to practice for the Double-C match held the following weekend by shooting our second  Wednesday of the month match on April 10. Seems Cavalier is just a bonanza of shooting opportunities. All are welcome. Stages are being processed for Wednesdays match as we speak and will be forth coming.

Sunday Matches Comments Off on 1st Sunday Match — April 7th, 2019

Hello Everybody

I would have to say that todays weather was just about picture perfect. It was nice to have the Cowboy Social back as well. We had 17 shooters participate in todays festivities but with the nice weather and the fun stages, we only managed to produce one clean all day shooter That was meee, that was me. Anyway, with Cody having 27 misses and me shooting clean, he still was the top overall shooter. Glad you could all come and thanks for all the help.
Don’t forget that we will shoot again this Wednesday and I’m looking forward to shooting with all, or almost all my pards this up coming weekend at the Gunfight at the Double-C. Of course, results are attached.

Thanks a bunch:
Major B.S.Walker

Hello Boys & Girls
Sorry you had to work today or just decided to sleep in because it was a good day for a match. Weather today should pretty much mirror what we will experience this weekend at Gathering on the Mattaponi. We finally wound up with 9 shooters today and with stages like we had, it could of been 5 or 6 shooters. Actually, the twist in the stages made for a very fun afternoon. Sadly, we only had one clean shooter and that honor goes to VA. Rifleman the one and only. Thanks guys for all the help.
PS – Speaking of this weekends Gathering on the Mattaponi, you can just bring your registration to the Double-C match with you and save a stamp.
See all of you this weekend.

Hello Everyone
Time to dust off your Wednesday ammunition and shoot up some targets again. Winter is on the way out and Wednesday matches are on again. The Cavalier Cowboys  invites you to come on out this Wednesday, 3/13/19, and have some fun. Gates open at 10 am for set up and first shot down range at high noon. Speaking of high, the temps for Wednesday is around 54 with 4 mph winds. Not to bad, not to bad at all. Hope to see you then.
Major B.S.W.
Don’t forget to set your clocks forward this Saturday night.
