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

Good evening everyone
With the group that shot the Father Time match and the shooters that thought it might rain you really missed a good match today at Cavalier. Comfortable temperatures and not a drop of rain until 30 minutes into the cowboy social after the match. Ripsaw provided us with some really nice stages. Me managed to muster up nine shooters for todays match and also welcomed two first time Sundays regular
match shooters ( but not new to the Wednesday matches) Max Steel and Captain R. Hugh Kidnme. We had two clean shooters today , myself and Captain R. Hugh Kidnme. Scores are posted.

Thanks again for all the help;
Major BS Walker

I must apologize for my mistake on the location of Cavaliers Sunday match this week. The match will be held in its usual location this month but will move location next month. Sorry, I got it back asswards.

Thanks: Major BS


Hello Everyone

This Sunday May 6th. the Cavalier Cowboys are having their first Sunday of each month regular scheduled match. I know many of you will be at the Father Time match but for those that are not going, you can still shoot at Cavalier. Because of a special class being held on Bay 3 on that date, we will be shooting the match on the Bay 4 sites. Just pass the Saloon and park up the hill on the left. Gates open at 8:30, safety briefing at 9:45 and first round down range at 10:00. The stages for this weeks match were written by Mr. Ripsaw and are attached.

See you Sunday

2018 Gunfight at the Double-C Scores

Hello Boys & Girls

What a great weekend to shoot a match. Five minutes of drizzle was the only drawback from an almost perfect weekend. I do hope everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to you, the Gunfight was totally worth all the hard work it took to have this event. You could not possibly have a more dedicated, harder working and fun loving group of cowpokes than the group that were here this weekend. All of you deserve a standing ovation.

Here are the results attached and please remember to visit us next year.

All my best:

Hello Everyone

This Sunday, April 1, 2018 the Cavalier Cowboys will be shooting their regular monthly match. Actually, not so regular because it is Easter. I do have enough confirmed attendance to still have a nice turnout. To all that can’t be with us have a happy Easter. I will miss a target for you in your absence. Gates open at 8:30, safety meeting at 9:45 and start shooting at 10:00. Stages are not attached because back by popular demand, this will be our on site design match where six lucky shooters will design a stage. The starting line for Sunday is “I Shot the Easter Bunny”

To all of my cowboy family
Have a great Easter Holiday

Hello Everyone

Just found out that the wind has broken a power pole on Boondock Ln. going into the Cavalier range and another line is hanging dangerously low as you enter the range so with the request of the president of the Cavalier Rifle & Pistol Club and the danger aspect at hand, with a heavy heart, we must cancel this Sundays match.

1st Sunday Match – February 4th, 2018

Sunday Matches Comments Off on 1st Sunday Match – February 4th, 2018

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

We have made the decision to cancel our 1st Sunday match for February 4th, 2018.

Although it has improved slightly from yesterday’s forecast, the current hourly weather forecast calls for rain and a “feels like” temperatures in the 30’s throughout our match time window. We can handle the rain and we can handle the cold but when you combine them and throw in a steady wind all day, it just isn’t fun weather too shoot in.

By the time I get to shoot again, I will need someone to mentor me 🙁

Stay warm and enjoy the football game on Sunday!!

1st Sunday Match – January 7th, 2018

Sunday Matches Comments Off on 1st Sunday Match – January 7th, 2018

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

Happy New Year to all our Cowboy Family and Friends!!!!

In terms of bad weather, my normal approach is to send out the match announcement on Monday saying that we are planning on having a match but will send out am update on Friday with the final call. I use this approach because the weather forecast 7 days out are very unreliable.

However, the current hourly weather forecast for Sunday calls for 18 degrees with a feels like of 13 degrees for our 10:00 am start time.

This forecast is so far below what I consider minimum acceptable shooting, that I am taking a different approach.

Assume that the Sunday, January 7th match is cancelled.

And if some weather miracle occurs between now and then, we will send out an update on Friday that the match is back on.

Let’s hope this isn’t the start of a bad trend for 2018 cowboy shooting……

Safe Travels,

Striker
