Flagler County Cowboy's
Cowboy Action Shooting will usually be held on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
Registration is from 8:15 to 9:00 am. A mandatory shooters meeting is held at 9:00 am.
Members $10 Nonmembers $15
We usually setup 4 to 6 Cowboy stages on Sunday morning, all help is greatly appreciated.
We average 40 to 60 pistol rounds, 40 to 60 rifle rounds, and 25 to 30 shotgun rounds
We dress up like cowboys and cowgirls and set up different stages like taking on Slick Fred and his gang, or the new Marshall in town taking on the crooked town Mayor. We carry two single action six shooters on our side and usually have a lever action lead dispenser handy that shoots a pistol caliber bullet. Also it’s good to have a stagecoach double barrel shotgun just incase you need something to clear the area. One could also use an 1897 Winchester pump or replica. Cowboy hats, boots and long sleeves are a must as well as a sense of adventure.
