Is this only limited to NCOWS members?   

Something as worthy as this should open to all CAS Masonic Shooters.  Just a thought.  Wink

   This is open to any Masonic western action shooters. What I am trying to figure out is, how to get it started in other areas so more will be able to join without having to travel long distances. After the NCOWS convention I will have a better idea where we will have members who can bring in others. At that time I will contact those who have expressed interest to see if we can come up with a way to get everyone involved who wants to be a part of Hiram's Rangers.

   Greetings,Trap!

   Please excuse the late response to your West Coast call. I'm not CAS, but I'd be delighted to link up with any other like-minded Masonic Shooters!

   Be Well, All!

Hey Trap,
I know we have quite of few Masonic Shooters here in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  I am sure they would like to partake of this venture.  Let us know how it will go and I am sure we would want in.  Keep us all posted.

   I will respond after the NCOWS convention to those in the outlands. I have a couple of ideas, but want to run them by our charter members.

Hi Brethren,
I also wish to be a Hiram's Ranger, but I cannot meet in person.
I was raised to the sublimed degree of Master Mason last week on Jan16th.
I shoot here in Arnold, Missouri. http://www.cowboygass.net/
There should be someway us Masonic Cowboys can join an internet fraternity.
I could set-up and run a website if that would be useful. I currently run http://www.shootershack.com

I am thinking about wearing the Masonic emblem on my holster. I am considering tooling our emblem in leather and making it a "slide-on" piece that slides on the holster like the SASS badge holders. What do you think? Is this appropriate?

Hi,
I was thinking ahead and hope I'm not out of line.
I went ahead and registered the domain name www.Hirams-Rangers.com
If Trap wants, he, we can use this domain name.
Maybe just a page that lists our Alias, City, State?
Thanks,

What a great Idea!!!

I am not an NCOWS shooter, but I am a SASS shooter.  I'm Past Master of Ashton Lodge #531 AF&AM in Ashton, Illinois.  A life member and have been an officer in my Lodge for 32 of the 33 years I have been a member.  I always try to have on hand the Masonic Shooter's Pins and give one to any Brother that notices it and request information on how to get one.  I have probably given away close to 30 of them through the years.  Unfortunatly, I can not make the trip to Iowa on the 17th.  Please keep me posted as to how I may become a member in Hiram's Rangers.


Thank you,

Fraternally Yours,

   Well, two weeks to the next induction of Hiram's Rangers, at the NCOWS National Convention. It is set for SAT. afternoon at 3 PM. You will need to have your Blue lodge dues card and be clad in 19th century attire. If you are a western shooter from any outfit, and can make it to Council Bluffs, IA. you can become a Hiram's Ranger and attend a round-up of a bunch of great folks and a great organization. If you haven't checked out the web-site go to <hirams-rangers.com> .      jt

This is a great opportunity for us Brothers in Masonry to be able to incorporate the fellowship of Masonry withthe fellowship of CAS.  I am sure that there a number of brother Masons who are CAS shooters in the State of Texas. I would be willing to help with establishing Hiram's Rangers in Texas.

  NCOWS had a great convention this last weekend, and 4 new brothers were inducted into the Rangers. A couple from MN. and a couple from IA. Watch the website for their names. If you are near those areas and want to be a Ranger contact me and I will see if we can get you together with any of these brothers to induct you. One of our new Rangers  will be in the Phoenix and San Francisco areas this spring ,and has graciously agreed to try to meet with brothers to induct new Rangers. You can contact me for his E-mail to set up a meeting. Meet on the level.   jt

  For those of you that have contacted me before this date, I will be in touch.

I had hoped to be able to do more traveling as I got older but my job has me pinned to South Texas. I have my Blue Lodge card and am in good standing at my lodge and in my valley, I would be able to fax or e-mail a copy of it to the appropriate brother, but moving about the country is not possible at this time fact is I'm lucky to be able to shoot with my club more than twice a year right now.  I'm trying to rectify this but right now I'm on call 7X7 here.

  Spoke with a couple of new Rangers in the last few days who said they would be doing some travelling and shooting and would be able to induct new Rangers. I hope they see this and post where they will be so if your out there and hear the calling you can contact them to make necessary arrangements.
