34 Cowboys, Cowgirls and Wild Bunch shooters rolled into Wartrace for a Great day of shooting. The Cowboy shooters shot the same stages as the Main August Match which included a rifle knock-down at the Gallows, a 2 target Progressive sweep at Graftons and at Wells Fargo the 10th pistol round had to go on a rifle target and the 10th rifle round had to go down the barrel of a cannon. It was a really fun match doing some things we don't often do.
The Wild Bunch Stages were written by Tom Horn and they got in a lot more shooting than the Cowboys did. Don't let the scores fool you into thinking most of the Cowboys out shot most of the Wild Bunch. While the Cowboys had 50 shots with their revolvers, the Wild Bunch shot 140 rounds through their pistols. I'm sure they had a blast getting that much shooting in.
Buck Dodgers was the Top Gun of the day for the Cowboys followed by Papa Dave, Randy Saint Eagle, Ben T. Iron, Duck River, Tombstone John, Cherohala Chase, Dusty Wilcox, Sheriff Frank Canton and Birdshot Pete (a Buckaroo) rounded out the Top 10.
CW Knight was the Wild Bunch Top Gun, followed by Frank Buckshot, Papa Oso, Deadwood Miner, Marshall Hiram Stephens, Tom Horn and Demented Frenchman.
I always like to recognize the folks who shoot a "Clean" Match and this match for a change I'm in that group. Congrats to Buck Dodgers, Papa Dave, Randy Saint Eagle, Ben T Iron and Fort Knox.
The next match at Wartrace will be the Long Range Match August 25.
