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 – February 4th 2024

Hello all

It might have started a little cold for the first three stages but our heaters and our warm hearts took care of that. The last three stages were quite comfortable for a February day. Fourteen shooters showed up today with several onlookers who also came by and hung around. Mr. Walker Colt and Mr. Tree Doc Red were our only CAD shooters and they also came in first and second overall. Fun stages and fun people who help out. What’s not to love. Results attached.

1st Sunday Match – January 7th 2024 – Happy New Year!

Howdy everyone out there in Cowboy land.

The turn out today was more reminiscent of a Wednesday match but the few, the brave, and the lucky ones who showed up thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Sun came out and temps were several degrees warmer than forecast. The heaters were also a hit. We only had one CAD shooter raise his ugly head and that was me. Ripsaw kicked all our asses even with a miss. A big thanks for all the help. Don’t forget, next Saturday the Pungo Posse picks up their match schedule once again.
Thanks All:

1st Sunday Match – December 3rd 2023

Hello everyone out there in this big old Cowboy shooten world. The Cavalier boys pulled off their final 2023 match today despite the chance of rain. Weather people got it right for a change. Stopped raining about 7:30 so by 10:00 we were good to go. Eighteen Cowpokes attended and we had a 33% Clean All Day with Bucksaw Bob, Kuba Kid, Potter County Kid, Red Cavanaugh, Walker Colt and myself pulling it off. We had a pig shoot for a bonus plus if you hit it, your name was entered into a drawing for a Cabela’s gift card. Mr. Kuba Kid was the lucky winner. A gentleman from Tennessee, Mr. Bona Fide, hung around Richmond long enough to shoot the match with us today. Was great having you and please try to do it again sometime. Thank you all for all the extra work you put into the match today. Results linked below.

Thanks All:
Happy Holidays:
Major BS Walker

Sunday’s Match Results Are In!

Hello Boys and Girls
With the mass exodus to North Carolina, the Cavalier gang managed to pull off a perfect weather day. Twelve lucky souls got to take advantage of this perfect weather day to shoot some Cowboy Action. Sadly to say that no one managed to pull off a clean match. I would like to shout out a big welcome to the two new shooters to us, Ms. Iron Yoper and Mr. Steady Dutchman who made their first appearance at Cavalier today.and the return of Tombstone Rex. Hope to see more of you. Thanks for all the hard work that everyone had to endure to pull off this match. Results linked below.
Thanks Again:

2nd Wednesday Match – Sept 13, 2023

Hello Cowpokes

Sorry for the late scores sent out but was having computer issues. Well seven of us braved the elements to shoot a match today. Unfortunately, two of us were laid up enough to not be able to shoot. My back has headed south again so all I can do is watch and Mr. Ripsaw gave it a go for one stage but has an injured hand so he stopped. The lucky five that remained shooting just could not muster up a clean all day match. Overall, it was a really nice day. Results attached.
Thanks
