We had a wonderful day of shooting yesterday! We had pretty decent weather with the clouds in the sky keeping it from being too terribly hot. We kept everyone hydrated, though, with plenty of water and starting earlier, at 8:30, really helped keep us cooler.
We had 17 shooters join in on our primer popping and Irish chose stages from the 2014 Ruckus in the Nations OK State Championship to have fun with.
We’ve been enjoying a new Buckaroo coming into the sport of Cowboy Action, Lever Action Kid! He joined us for the third time yesterday and on top of shooting his own match, he was a great brass picker!
At the end of the match, Lil’ Irish — my and Irish Kid’s boy (and yes he picked out his own name!) — was helping, too! We’re getting him ready, cowboys and girls! He’s almost there!
Both boys did great! We also had another visitor that I didn’t get to talk to much, but I dubbed “Green Horn” because of his green shirt and the fact that he was new to the sport! He shot a few stages and told us he had been thinking about getting into it for a while, but this was the first time he had ever shot a cowboy match. He sure was smiling a lot!
Unfortunately, Cat City Slim and Smokin Okie were both plagued with some gun problems. Smokin Okie had one break on him so he decided to leave a little early, but Cat City Slim managed to stick it out.
We also enjoyed getting to visit with Prarie Ghost and Alabama Bill (over from Arkansas), Stank Eye Sue and her beau Silver Creek Drifter, as well as Hunny 00 and Gunny 00! But let’s be honest, it was good to see everyone that came out and shot. 🙂
Congrats to Irish Kid, Alabama Bill, Gunny 00, Prarie Ghost, and Purdy Good for taking the top 5 spots!
We look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday when we shoot again! It will be run by our resident concerned citizen, Little Fat Buddy while Irish and I have a family reunion to go to. We know it’ll be a good time. Little Fat Buddy never ceases to make people smile!
