The league shoot is a mixture of PPC Style, LE Qualification Courses, Action Pistol (IDPA Like) and many other courses of fire. It is low pressure by design to make you a better, more accurate, more competent shooter but most of all to enjoy the shooting sports. Matches are scheduled for the first and third Monday of the month from September through May from 6 PM – 9 PM. There is a $10 fee for members and a $15 fee for non-members and a $2.00 target fee.
The Cops and Cowboys matches are based on Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) scenarios and use rules and procedures adapted from those used by the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS). Cowboys use 2 single action revolvers and a lever action rifle in a pistol caliber. Guns used are either original or reproduction pre-1900 models. The “Cops” may use any modern pistol and a pistol caliber carbine (or another pistol if desired). A typical match requires 10 rifle rounds and 10 pistol rounds. Targets are placed 15 – 20 feet downrange for the rifle and 10 – 15 feet for the pistols. Pistols are normally drawn from holsters. Rifles are staged on the table in a booth loaded (normally) with 10 rounds and an empty chamber. Pistol(s) are loaded with 5 rounds and holstered. Semi-auto pistols use 2 magazines with 5 rounds each. We use paper plates and/or 8½” x 11” paper for targets.
We usually shoot 5 stages per match. A storyline is read for each stage and the shooting order for the target configuration for that stage is explained. When a shooter is ready, the range officer will press the start button on a shot timer. At the beep, the shooter will engage the rifle targets in the required sequence. When finished, the shooter will place the rifle back on the booth table and move to the next booth. The shooter will then engage the pistol targets in the required sequence. The shot timer records the total time taken from the buzzer to the last shot fired. Misses count as a 5 second penalty and procedurals (usually shooting the targets out of sequence) count as a 10 second penalty. The shooter’s time is recorded. Lowest overall time for the 5 stages determines the “winner”.
Matches are scheduled for the second Monday of the month from September through May from 6 PM – 9 PM. We may shoot on Friday night from June – August. There is a $10 fee for members and a $15 fee for non-members.
Feel free to come out to participate or just watch and see if single action pistols and lever guns can really compete with semi-autos
