The Whispering Pines Cowboy Committee is slated to present some target shooting with pistols as part of the S.A.S.S. (Single Action Shooters Society) code for Cowboy Shoots.
Yes, you will have the opportunity to target shoot a gun just like the cowboys used in the late 1800's. Now's your chance to live a childhood dream, wear the white hat and save the day as you stare down the barrel of Ol' Black Bart's gun before you send him to Boot Hill!
Cowboy Action Shoot requires competitors to use firearms typical of the mid-to-late 19th century: single action revolvers, lever action rifles chambered in pistol calibers, and side-by-side double barrel shotguns (also referred to as a Coach Gun – with or without external hammers, although automatic ejectors are not allowed) or 1897-style pump-action shotguns with external hammers. Winchester 1887 lever-action shotguns and Colt Lightning pump-action rifles are also legal. Both original and reproduction guns are equally acceptable. All CAS handguns must be "single-action", meaning that the hammer must be manually cocked before each shot can be fired.
