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

Match Stages – Sunday April 2nd

2nd Wednesday Match – March 8th

Hello Dudes and Dudesses
The laid back bad guys at Cavalier managed to pull off their first 2023 Wednesday match. It warmed up about 4 degrees more than the weatherman guessed and with light winds it was quite pleasant. Everyone seemed to have problems with some WTF stages so we had NO clean shooters. It was still a fun day. Cavaliers next match will be Sunday, April 2nd. It’s not too late to sign up for Gathering on the Mattaponi next weekend. Email or call so you can be added.

Today’s results are attached.

1st Sunday Match – March 5th 2023

Hello Fellow Fun Seekers

Twas March the 5th but the weather was more like late April or early May. Couldn’t ask for any better, sunny with just a slight breeze. Anyhow, five cowboys took advantage of that and shot CAD, clean all day. Congratulations to Walker Colt, Lefty Spurmaker, Bucksaw Bob, Potter County Kid, and the new guy shooting his first ever match, Mopor CC Rider. Mr. Mopor, hope you had a good time, We also had momma Ms.Dang Jenner and the boys back. Congrads to Mr. Walker Colt for taking the top honor and not to forget, A BIG  THANK YOU to everyone working like a well oiled machine. Results attached somewhere.
Thanks Again:
That Major BS Walker Feller

Hello Cowpokes

Well it might have gotten to the mid fifties today but we couldn’t enjoy the warmth because of the damn wind. We all still managed to enjoy ourselves with some mighty fine stages. Mr. Ripsaw, the Lefty Spurmaker and Captain R. Hugh Kidnme himself, all made it to the CAD podium. Dakota Rambler took the first place honors. Thank you to everyone for all the help. Results are attached.

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.

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”
