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.

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.

It was another great day for our monthly buffalo shoot. Our turnout today was a little light due to a plate match being held at another club. Next month will be our last match for the year and at the end of the match we will be presenting the yearly Buffalo Rifle Trophy to the lucky winner. It was great to see Shawn at the match today as well as Dusty Ed son Eddie Jr. let's try and make our last match a great one with a good turn out. We would like to thank everyone for taking the time out and making this as always a great day at the range. Until next month be safe and God Bless.

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.
