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!
Those scores are on the website.
We’re looking forward to seeing y’all tomorrow for our annual Jimmy Buffet potluck and luau! We’ll be having burgers, watermelon, and a lot of fun! We hope some of you that haven’t been out in a while can make it!
It’s getting hot outside, so dress cowboy casual (your favorite cowboy shirt and shorts, no flip flops) or wear your favorite Hawaiin outfit a la Jimmy Buffet (still no flip flops, though)! We’ll have leis for everyone to get into the festive mood and Charles B. Gatewood will be writing the 4 stages for our shoot!
So bring your dessert or side dish, bring your pards, bring your guns and let’s have fun!
START TIME: 8:30AM
Some of you may be traveling or at End of Trail, but we had a wonderful time on Saturday with all the pards that came to join us for a little of EOT in Oklahoma on Father’s Day!
All the men had a clean day (as long as their bullets came out of the barrels of their guns, downrange!) while yours truly, the only lady, got to take all of the misses and P’s on their behalves! Haha!
The scores are up on the website! Our regularly scheduled fourth Wednesday shoot will be June 26th.
We’ll see you soon!
Good luck to those headed to EOT!
We hope everyone is safe and sound from all the storms and the flooding that’s going on. We’ve checked in with a few of you and are happy that everyone has been doing good so far. Fingers crossed that the rain goes away soon.
So while our fancy tablets like to remember aliases and categories and I was able to input a few of you, some of you were input as “Cowboy”, so I could give you scores!
Tisk Tisk! 😉 If any of you have incorrect categories and would like them updated, please email me and I’ll get it changed and updated on the website as well.
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!
See you on the range!
Luck was with Angus Red, Longtown Lefty, The Bearded Wonder, and Smokin’ Okie who all got a gorgeous green carabiner, and small bottle of Rem Oil. We also gave away a brick of .22 Long Rifle ammo, OFF! Deep Woods in preparation for Pursuit(!), and a nifty green tin trail cup!
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 !!!!
