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

Sunday 4th of July Match

Hello Cowboys & Cowgirls

The Cavalier Cowboys will be hosting their 1st Sunday of the month match, which happens to be the 4th of July, this Sunday with a slight change. After the match supplied by Mr. Smackwater, he will be grilling at the Cowboy Social for the small additional fee of 0.00.😋 Not required but something to add to the festivities will be appreciated and devoured. Match to start at usual time. Setup will be on Saturday at 4:00.

Be sure to wear something patriotic.
Thanks All: Major BSW


1st Sunday Match — January 3rd, 2021

Hello ALL
The weatherman got it partly right, no rain after 6:00 am so we were high and dry until half way through the 5th stage when it started to mist. It misted hard for the last stage so things were a little damp by the end. No serious problems at all today except for my shooting. We all still had a good time standing around the heater if not shooting. We did have two CAD shooters and they came in first and second overall, that masked crusader  Mr. Ripsaw and his faithful sidekick Bingo Montana. Way to go guys. Speaking of way to go guys, that also rolls over to all the people that helped with the chores. Results are attached somewhere.
Major BS Walker


Weather rain forecast for the Cavalier range Sunday morning is 80% at 6:00, 50% at 8:00, 20% at 10:00, 0% at 12. Match is a go. Rain during the drive but ending by start time. Canopies will be available if needed.

Hope you can make it

1st Sunday Match — October 4th, 2020

Hello Everyone
What great weather to shoot a match. Needed a jacket in stage one then tada. just nice. I guess the rest of you were tied up with honey – do things.
This was an especially good day for Mr, Smackwater  because it was his return match after having Cataract Surgery and he shot it Clean All Day along with Enid City Kid, I guess with the starting line “That’s Pretty Bold Talk For a One eyed Fat Man” that one eyed fat man came through. Thanks for all the help with set-up and tear down.Results attached.
You guys and gals rock:
Major BS Walkler
