Getting Western with Cowboy Action ShootingCAS in the media Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
From The Daily Caller: Many years ago a few IPSC shooters came up with an idea to shoot a competition using only outdated Old West-type guns.
They thought it would be fun shooting stages with six guns instead of using the new fangled eight shooter. Then they thought, why not take it a step further and get dressed up into clothing of the period? From there, the idea of shooting stages built to resemble old saloons and jails and using additional guns from the period such as a lever rifle and old double-barreled shotguns came about.
