In continuing our Old West theme, come join us on Saturday, July 12th, as we make our triumphant return to town after a very successful Pink Buffalo Hunt. We will enjoy a quiet night on the prairie before we ride into town with our wagons filled with hides. During our absence, rumors have surfaced of some rough and tumble shenanigans afoot, and it may be up to us Lady Folk to set them cowboys straight! (Don't we always!)
Registration will begin at 9:00 in the clubhouse. Shooting will begin after registration is complete, a safety meeting, and a brief discussion of the game of Cowgirl Action Shooting. Registration is $15.00, lunch included
What you will need;
CAS is usually played with 2 Single Action Pistols (Fast Draw pistols are fine), 1 Lever Action Rifle in a pistol caliber, and 1 shotgun - either side x side or Winchester model 1897.
Guns will be available for those that don't have them. If you do have one or more, please bring them.
Ammo: We know ammo is very hard to find these days, so we have adjusted the shoot accordingly. You will need to bring 1 BOX (50 rounds) of either .38 Special or .45 Long Colt ROUND NOSE FLAT POINT LEAD ONLY.
No jacketed bullets are allowed.
Also, you will need 1 box of either 12 gauge or 20 gauge shotgun shells (any bird-shot size).
For this shoot we are also allowing the use of .22 Long Rifle guns, but only Single Action Pistols and Lever Action Rifles PLEASE. Again. you will need 50 rounds of .22 LR ammo if you intend to shoot .22 LR guns.
There will be a minimal amount of ammo available to use at the shoot, but there will be a fee to use it. Please try to bring your own ammo.
In keeping with the spirit of the game, please try to dress a little 'Cowgirl' for this event. Period dress is a very important part of CAS. We will be shooting across the street, in the field.
To learn more, visit the club web site under Cowboy Action Shooting. (Same game, without our class and style! Sorry boys.)
If you need more information about the Ladies Only Cowgirl Shoot, contact Mary Ann Sheets (aka Daisy A'Dare) at BHRegulators@myfairpoint.net
Don't miss out on this really fun shooting game! Hope to see you there.
