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 Everyone
The Cavalier Cowboys will be having their second Wednesday match this Wednesday, Dec.12. This will be our last Wednesday match until the winter passes and will resume again in March. Weather forecast for the match is supposed to be in the mid to upper 40’s and sunny so it will even feel warmer than actual temperatures. Gates open at 10:00 with first shot at 12 noon.
Hope you can make it

Attached are the stages – trying something a little more different.

Hello fellow Cowboys and Cowgirls

It was a little cold today but without the wind blowing it was comfortable with the help of a pair of long johns . With the crowd we had today I just can’t understand why we didn’t have a single clean shooter but o” well, stranger things have happened. I would like to congratulate Cody as our 1st place shooter, BS, me in second place and Ripsaw coming in third overall. I’d also would like to thank Ripsaw for bringing his neighbor Gary to watch his first match and he got to shoot a couple of stages to boot. Thanks Gary for helping out. The results from today are attached.

Thanks All: MBSW

Hello Fellow Cowboy Shooters

Well what can I say but what a great day for a Cowboy get together. First two stages were a little nippy but by stage three most were out of their coats for the rest of the day. Cavalier had the honor of having two first time at Cavalier shooters, Tinpan McGurk and Lawman Mays and we also had the honor of having Yakima Jim shoot his first time ever Cowboy match. Despite me being there, we hope to see all of you again. Remember you are always welcome into the Cowboy family and the friendship we all shared with each other at todays match. If I could remember the spectators name that watched and hooked all day I would like to thank him also. Now for the results. Weather was just right for a good bowl of Chili after the match and rubbing our noses in it was Mr. Stogie again repeating the coveted title as this years Chili Champion. Congrads Stogie. Where else can you go and come in first and second at one match. We did manage to have two clean shooters, that being Sassy and me. Thanks you everyone for your work effort and just being you.

Hello Everyone

Time again for the Cavalier Cowboys first Sunday of the month match and also our 2nd. annual Chili Cook-off on Nov. 4th. Gates open at 8:30, safety briefing at 9:45 and first shot down range at 10:00. Saturday night is the end of Daylight Savings Time so don’t forget to set your clocks back. This will give you one extra hour to sleep in or for some extra time to recover, so don’t show up too early or too late. Looking forward to some award winning chili and to some award winning cowboy shooting fun. Stages are attached and were written by Mr. Smackwater.

 

Sorry for the mess up on drawings for stages 4,5 & 6. The pistols are 1 through 5, I didn’t notice the mistake until I opened the attachment .

Sorry: Major BS Walker

Hello everyone

What a nice day to shoot. A little breeze would of helped but it was still quite nice. We still had a good turnout with many at the Eastern Divisional but 20 shooters managed to make it to the match. With the mostly non traditional stages some fool put together, we still managed to have 3 clean shooters, Cockroach, Smackwater and Major BS Walker. I do hope everyone had fun today. That is the real reason we put ourselves through all of this. Stages attached.

Thanks for all the help

Another Sunday match at Cavalier is now in the books. I think Smackwater did a (pun) bang up job with his stages today. I’m sure many of you also think so since almost a third of the posse shot it clean. Our clean shooters today were Cody Maverick, Enid City Kid, Regret Scovefield, Sassy Shooting Sours and Swifty McDraw. Cody Maverck was our top shooter. Thanks for all the help with all match duties today. Everything moved like a well oiled machine. For those that missed today, if you would of come you would of shot it clean also.

Thanks again
You guys/ gals are the greatest
