Wasn’t it a hoot this year at Pursuit?! Tons of kids with grandparents and water fun was just a part of the grand time we all had. Some really nice folks who had never come to one of our shoots drove 1,000 miles to visit! Thank you Harry II Late, Trickster and friends! We’re so glad you came out and hope you’re already making plans for next year! 😉
We had a great potluck on Friday with a huge turn out and some of the best food this side of Oklahoma! And I don’t think you can say you were even at Woolaroc if you didn’t hear from The Bearded Wonder asking you over to his camp for some grub! 😉
If you have any photos or videos from the shoot please share them on our Facebook group so everyone can enjoy! Stay tuned for what we got, too!
We had 104 shooters come on out and I know we were all pretty worried about the weather at first, and it did get warm at the end of the day, but man it sure ended up being a pretty great day for lead! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sure feel like this was one of the best darn Pursuits we’ve had!
HUGE THANKS goes out to all the waddies and folks down from Mizzou for helping set up and tear down stages! You guys are SUCH A BIG HELP!!! We can’t thank you enough!!
THANK YOU BURLY BILL AND CATOOSA RED for putting on such an amazing match every year! Hats off to you both!

Today we had 5 shooters come join us and y’all, you missed out on a real fun shoot! It was much warmer than yesterday, and since there weren’t a ton of us, we ran through the stages pretty fast (too bad it wasn’t faster for some of us or clean, to boot!) and we all stayed for a rousing round with the Texas Star!
Yours truly had never shot it before, so we all took turns shooting it with our pistols.. then our rifles.. and even our shot guns. The Bearded Wonder even managed to get all five targets with one hit! Don’t ask us how but it happened, I tell ya!
To top today off, we had a few first time shooters, Shaky and Slick Willy. They only ran through one stage because they really only wanted to come watch for a while, but we’re sure they’ll come back for some more of that black powder!
Top honors go to Irish Kid, Miracle Man, and Little Fat Buddy. They were quickly followed up by The Bearded Wonder and Longtown Lefty. I didn’t shoot stages because I was helping keep the posse running smooth!
Our next shoot is Wednesday, March 28th! We hope some of you with some extra time join Little Fat Buddy’s troupe and fire up your long guns and pistols!
Until next time, y’all!

We had a great time at the range this weekend! We had a total of 18 shooters come out this weekend and brave the cold wind and cloudy skies of Sunday morning. Saturday wasn’t as bad once the sun came out, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen Sunday!
Luckily, we had hot coffee ready on the range for everyone to enjoy, and like the “good ‘ol days”, the cowboys and cowgirls that came out all sat around the coffee spot and chit chatted and caught up. It was wonderful.
Our Facebook page will be filled with the videos and photos I managed to take this weekend, so enjoy them as they come out! (Sorry if I missed anyone! But I sure tried to get something for everyone!) We also have a Facebook Group that you can join and chat amongst yourselves or share photos you may have grabbed!We had quite a few visitors come up our way and enjoy all the lead slinging, one who is just about sure he will be coming back to shoot with his own gear pretty soon. We had a few leather enthusiasts, and another just waiting for his buddy to come on out to play!
Next time you see him, say hi to East Side Louie! He was a new shooter and friend of The Bearded Wonder’s that joined us today!
A couple of Cowfolk from over in Arkansas tried to beat the weather in their neck of the woods and shot with us on Saturday. Thanks to Alabama Bill and Prairie Ghost for joining us at The Gulch! Hope you had a good time on Sunday with Judge Parker’s Marshals!
Long time friend, but someone we haven’t seen in a while Puma Joe came by Sunday to work with the posse and watch the fun, too! Was a great surprise! We even managed to get a sighting of old time friend 45 Slim, too! He couldn’t handle the scattergun due to back surgery, but he threw rocks at those targets like no tomorrow! This weekend was full of catching up!
And we can’t forget mentioning that a few of the cowboys decided to have a Mock Wild Bunch stage after Saturday’s shoot, and they had so much fun that everyone went through the stage 3 times! Check out Little Fat Buddy explaining the stage and shooting through it.
Finally, Congrats to Josey Kidd for taking the top spot on Saturday, and coming in clean, to boot! Also congrats to Irish Kid and Speed Wagon for taking spots 2 and 3 respectively! All of these cowboys earned themselves some 4-piece Valentine’s day chocolate boxes on Saturday!
From today, we’d like to say congratulations to Irish Kid (#1), Angus Red (#2), and The Bearded Wonder (#3) for taking the top 3 spots! No one managed to come out clean today, though.
WHEW! That was a LOT! Our next shoot is Feb 28th for our Fourth Wednesday! We hope a few of you will join Little Fat Buddy and relax!
Til next time!
