(Ben Avery Shooting Facility, Phoenix, AZ) I just returned back to the hotel from the first day of this 5 day National Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting, organized by the The Arizona Territorial Company of Rough Riders. It was sunny and the temperature was perfect during the first day of the event where shooters competed in sidematches like Long Range Rifle, Speed Pistol and Speed Shotgun. The main event today was the Wild Bunch Side Match, where shooters competed with a 1911 pistol in .45ACP, a .45 lever action rifle and pump shotgun.. 71 Wild Bunch shooters, including Ron “Tupelo Flash” Stein and Michael “Wolf” Bane went through and completed 4 stages. Combine that with over 600 registered shooters and 60 vendors offering clothing, guns and accessories…and I’d say that it makes for an event that will keep everyone having fun for the next 4 days.
Two Sons, Doc Molar, Crazy Kurt shot 1st place in their Wild Bunch categories. See links to complete results below.
