Started the morning a little on the chilly side for the last Cowboy Shoot of the 2016 season. Keller Hollow Kid had his shootin irons tuned in for the over all win with Lead Slinger Leroy coming in in a very close second and Sidewinder Seth chasing them for third place. Dusty Ed finished with a very impressive over all score winning in his class, said he just wanted to get out of the cold. Mifflin Kid's irons don't work well in the cold so he had to settle for a fourth place finish, thinkin his joints don't like the cold. Dedeye Mike kept everyone hustling and chalked down the scores for the day. A special thanks to all that helped out this year and see ya all in 2017.
Sunday, November 13th will be Sight In Sunday. The club will be open to both the public and members. Food will be available. There will be drawings for gift certificates at local gun shops and for membership dues.
Saturday, November 19th the club will host another Handgun Class.
To view October scores go to Buffalo page go to view all scores and scroll down to the last for some reason it posed at the very end of the monthly scores.
Wow what a way to end the year with our last Buffalo Shoot it started out a little chilled. we have some challenges with the Sun and some of our targets it seen that they disappear for the entire match (275) It looks like Ed (Dusty Ed) Bergen was the top shooter with a score of 226 Congratulations with second and third places going to Jimmy D at 217 and Ted Klebon at 216. We would again like to thank everyone for coming out every month and making a premiere Buffalo Rifle Shot with great group of friends. Looking forward to 2017 let's see if we can bring some more shooter out every month. Would like to wish everyone a very blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas season. And lastly let's no forget in November to get out and vote we have a very important election and we have to make sure that the person we vote for is a strong advocate of the 2nd amendment and our constitution.
A nice cool day for yet another great Cowboy Action Shoot and yes the Mifflin Kid left his holster rig at home yet again, the neighbor said that his mules and buckboard was a leavin with out him so he was in a gosh darn hurry. Some how the Mifflin Kid managed to shoot a clean match even with using the stage props for holsters, wow and congratulations Kid. Lead Slinger Leroy took the over all win with Dodge Bill running him down for second place. Just a reminder that there is only one shoot left at North Mountain on 10/23/2016 and one left at Mainville (weather pending) on 11/13/2016.
