ALSO Big Round of Applause for our CLEAN Shooters: Bearded Wonder, Brazos Valley Kid, Gunny 00, High Plains Hud, and Irish Kid!
Huge Congrats goes to the Top “Kids”; Iron Tomahawk KID, Josey KIDD, and Irish KID! They went home with the top three spots followed by Angus Red, Major Art Tillery, Half Rack, Speed Wagon, Alabama Bill, Catoosa Red, and Broncho Red to round out the top 10.
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!
Irish wrote the stages all to be a little different and a lot of fun. Stage 1 had the rifle targets lined up, single file. Stage 2, we used the BIG cowboy target as a dump at the far berm, and a smaller cowboy just across the creek as a pistol target, plus 6 shotgun targets! Stage 3 saw the pards shooting one pistol on one side, then rifle, then the second pistol on the other side of the Corral. And finally, at the Hotel, everything seemed doable; Three on the outside targets, 2 on the inside targets for both pistol and rifle. Then 2 shotgun targets.
After all of that, Bearded Wonder treated us to the burgers he cooked on the grill and bacon covered steak bites that Barr Bear brought for us to enjoy (they were SO good). There were chips, Texas caviar, pasta salad, chip dips, pies, cakes, cookies.. it was a great spread!
Top awards go to Angus Red, Jack Rabbit Slims, and J Slim! Way to go!
Our next match is scheduled for this Saturday, 18 Mar 19, Times to be announced. I believe our Mayor, The Irish Kid and his gun moll, Purdy Darn Good Shooter have something of an “Irish Flair” for us.
So be good Kiddos and as Little Fat Buddy always says KEEP ON SHOOTIN !!!!
Thanks to Everyone that came to our Christmas Party! We had a ton of fun and gave away some fun things! Jerry’s Outdoors gave us some great items, plus we had ladies’ only gifts, too! Speaking of which, Burly Bill won himself a nice .22 single 6 pistol. We’re all so happy for him and hope he enjoys it! 🙂
