~ ANNOUNCEMENTS ~

         The June 2nd shoot was a very successful combination of Cowboy Action and Wild Bunch shooting. Skeeter Willie convinced Cotton Gloves, Cotton Tail and Saw Briar to drive a long way to help us out.  They are all experienced Wild Bunch shooters and we can’t thank them enough for their help.
          Cotton Gloves was very helpful with an explanation of Wild Bunch in general and as an R.O. keeping everybody within the rules.
           Cherokee Deacon and O’Shea shot Wild Bunch while Jim Powder, Chuck, Shamrock Paddy, Cumberland Mountain John, Rounder, Middle Creek Kid and Sally Star shot cowboy action.

          Wild Bunch shooting uses a Model 97 or Winchester Model 12 shotgun, a lever action rifle and a 1911 pistol. For SASS matches the rifle has to be .40 caliber or larger. Club matches can be shot with a .38 caliber rifle. Cowboy action stages can easily be written to accommodate Wild Bunch.
           The rules are on the SASS website. We plan to have both Cowboy action and Wild Bunch in our future matches in an effort to increase participation.
          Come to a match, ask questions, see how it works. If it suits you, become a Wild Bunch shooter. If you are a Cowboy Action shooter do both, it’s all a lot of fun.

Welcome!

If the Old West holds a special place in your heart you've come to the right place. We're a Cowboy Action Shooting™ Club sanctioned by the Single Action Shooting Society, an international organization created to preserve and promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting™. We dress in period clothing and hold monthly shooting matches using pistols, rifles and shotguns of the Old West (or modern replicas thereof) at our range called Bordertown in Bulls Gap, Tennessee . Our members include ladies, gentlemen and kids. We love visitors... come watch a match!

Gunfighter GraphicRegistration begins at 8:30 and ends at 9:15. A mandatory safety meeting gets underway at 9:30, and the match will start immediately after the safety meeting.  There is a $10 fee for GCR members, $15 for non-members and if you're a first time SASS shooter there is no charge.

As a rule we shoot regardless of the weather. We have two stages that allow shooters to load, shoot and unload under roof. We utilize these to shoot all five stages when the weather is very bad. If we feel that predicted weather conditions will make the range unsafe or if there is some other reason a match has to be cancelled we will post notification on the front page of this web site and on the Message Board the moment a decision to cancel is made. We will also e-mail everyone whose e-mail address is on file. Feel free to call a Club Officer for confirmation when in doubt.
