The concrete work at the clubhouse and the trap range is complete. Block work for skeet houses is in progress.

A few people have asked about the 2017 schedule. I have confirmation that there will be a Practical Handgun shoot on Jan 15th, weather permitting. Beyond that I have no concrete details on scheduling other than expect Practical Handgun to continue on the third Sunday of every month. I'm sure details will be coming in soon so please check back for updates.

Cowboy Action Scores for November are Posted

Posted by rhunsinger on November 14, 2016 at 12:43 pm

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.

Cowboy Action Scores for September are Posted

Posted by rhunsinger on September 12, 2016 at 1:58 pm

We had two clean match shooters, congratulations goes out to Rushtown Kid and Mifflin Kid for shooting a clean match. Some say they were making plans with the score keeper for a free dinner at Bonanza Steak House. Beaver Run Kid took the over all win with Quick whit Bigguns (his youngen) coming in second just a few seconds short of whoopen his butt. Then 3rd thru 7th was also a very close for those cowboys to rustle it out. 

SPECIAL NOTE ; Dodge bill is putting together a Wild Bunch shoot for on a Saturday. The only difference with the shooten irons from standard Cowboy Action is that you replace both six shooters with a 40 or 45 cal. simi auto. Please contact Dodge Bill at 570-690-3932 or dodgebil@ptd.net  for any questions or if you will attend.

It was a very humid day for the shoot and Beaver Run Kid took the over all win. No clean match shooters this time all though The Mifflin Kid only had one miss and some stated that it was because he shoot thru the target hanger hole with out hitting any metal. If you ask him he will swear that is what he was aiming for, yeah okay. Dodge Bill set up a simple yet complicated stage where all the shooters except for three got procedures just because of a double tap on one target. See ya all next month.
