What is Cowboy Fast Draw?
Cowboy Fast Draw shooting is a way for people, who
enjoy the old west genre, to get together and experience
the "Old West". We take you back to the Gunfighter days
when you are called out to the street at high noon to
trade lead with the fastest lead slingers!
Come out and try yer hand at Cowboy Fast Draw!
Shooters dress in the 1800's period clothing and shoot .45 caliber western style single action pistols. Instead of real lead, we use shotgun primers with wax bullets. Our Target is a 17 3/16" round disc placed at 15 ft away. A light in the center controls the action. When the light comes on, the shooter draws his/her pistol from his/her holster, aims and shoots at the target while being timed to the thousandths of a second. We compete against other shooters for best time and hit accuracy. The target blinks on and off for the winner!
Our guns are real single action .45 caliber six shooters with a minimum barrel length of 4.5 inches just like the ones used in the old west; only we shoot a wax bullet propelled by a 209 shotgun primer - still quite a bang!. Our holsters are pre-1900's style.
The Cowboy Fast Draw motto is always Safety first, Fun second and Competition third. We are dedicated to creating a safe, fun and family friendly environment, so come out and experience life "The Cowboy Way". We look forward to seeing you at our next event. For more information please contact us or visit the Cowboy Fast Draw Association's official website at www.cowboyfastdraw.com and Join the CFDA today. For more information on the rules and regulations of Cowboy Fast Draw (CFDA) please visit their website.
The bullets are loaded by hand with no special equipment needed. I have included links to the Cowboy Fast Draw website for more information and some youtube video links. This is a lot of very inexpensive fun and best of all anyone can do it!
