:toofunny: NOOOOOO!

Haaaa OK Cowboy action shooting is competition using single action revolvers and pre-1894 lever action rifles. Also you must use SXS or pre-1900's pump shotguns with exposed hammers. Its a timed event and there are several classes. Frontiersman class is cap and ball revolvers, duelist is one single action, and gunfighter class using 2 single actions simultaneously... you shoot a course of various targets....and its timed for speed. I have been shooting frontier and duelist for 2 years now and my first shoot is in 2 weeks. But I was wondering if anyone shot gunfighter and had some tips how to take a right handed shooter and be able to use 2 sixguns simultaneously.

Let me rephrase...does anyone shoot 1880's period firearms in competition? And does anyone know how to handle 2 single action pistols simultaneously?

Geese.....I swear I am going to have to send a nasty grahm to hollywood and let them know that two cowboys do not have affairs...if someone were to be that oriented they would rather be in town trying to get on some show were a bunch of guys help other guys look good or something...heeeee :toofunny: :laughing:

Got ta start workin them tumbs out. I practice with my aunt and uncle, they shoot comps but i don't have time for it but my hands cramp up after i shoot singles, i prefer lever action. Single action take alot of practice cus of the cordination it take, it easy to get all discombobulated, just have to start off REAL SLLLLOOWWW and work on your timein.

Damn brokeback mountian, the cowboy name will forever be tarnished, screw hollywood

Sorry fellas but after being raised around ranches, ranch work, rodeo cowboys and outfitters I gotta tell ya that I have never run into a real cowboy that fell in love with his buddy!!!!! Most of the cowboys I know work hard and dirty and once the get a break are on thier way to the nearest saloon to check out the babes...not check out the dudes!!!!! I have known a few folks that thought ranch work was not thier cup of tea and they moved into town to be interior decorators so that they wouldn't get thier nails dirty. But I have never met a real cowboy like hollywood depicted sorry that kind of work is not for sissies!

FYI
Its time we stand up for ourselves

Ok folks, I have had it. I've taken all I can stand and I can't stand no more. Every time my TV is on, all that can be seen is effeminate men prancing about, redecorating houses and talking about foreign concepts like "style" and "feng shui." Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, trans-sexual, metrosexual, non-sexual; blue, green, and purple-sexual.

And another thing.. There is a movie that is being touted as one of the best films of the year. This film depicts two homosexual cowboys. Now hollywood has gone to far!!! When was the last time a good cowboy film got nominated for an oscar? This is hollywoods idea of how we as men should accept homosexuality but should adhore voilence in a good sit down John Wayne shoot them up cowboy flick. I do not know about anyone else but I have a hard time believing that two cowboys can fall in love with each other. Most gay men want to leave the ranch so they do not get dirt under thier nails and go live in the city where they can work as atrisans. But that is hollywoods way of trying to change our views. Ranch work is hard grueling work and I have to say I do not know of any gay cowboys riding broncs or running cattle. But never let hollywood nominate a real cowboy flick for an oscar because real cowboys in the 1800's lived in a rugged sometimes violent world. And violence in unacceptable but homosexuality is!!!

Bogus definitions have taken over the urban and suburban world!

Real men of the world, stand up, scratch your butt, belch, and yell "ENOUGH!"

I hereby announce the start of a new offensive in the culture wars, the Retrosexual movement.

The RetroSexual Code:

A Retrosexual does not let neighbors screw up rooms in his house on national TV.

A Retrosexual, no matter what the women insists, PAYS FOR THE DATE.

A Retrosexual opens doors for a lady. Even for the ones that fit that term only because they are female.

A Retrosexual DEALS with IT. Be it a flat tire, break-in into your home, or a natural disaster, you DEAL WITH IT.

A Retrosexual not only eats red meat, he often kills it himself.

A Retrosexual doesn't worry about living to be 90. It's not how long you live, but how well. If you're 90 years old and still smoking cigars and drinking, I salute you.

A Retrosexual does not use more hair or skin products than a woman. Women have several supermarket aisles of stuff. Retrosexuals need an end cap(possibly 2 end caps if you include shaving goods.)

A Retrosexual does not dress in clothes from Hot Topic when he's 30 years old.

A Retrosexual should know how to properly kill stuff (or people) if need be. This falls under the "Dealing with IT" portion of The Code.

A Retrosexual should not give up excessive amounts of manliness for women. Some is inevitable, but major re-invention of yourself will only lead to you becoming a froo-froo little wuss, and in the long run, she isn't worth it.

A Retrosexual is allowed to seek professional help for major mental stress such as drug/alcohol addiction, death of your entire family in a freak tree chipper accident, favorite sports team being moved to a different city, or favorite bird dog expiring, etc. You are NOT allowed to see a shrink because Daddy didn't pay you enough attention to you. Daddy was busy DEALING WITH IT. When you screwed up, he DEALT with you.

A Retrosexual will have at least one outfit in his wardrobe designed to conceal himself from prey.

A Retrosexual knows how to tie a Windsor knot when wearing a tie -- and ONLY a Windsor knot.

A Retrosexual should have at least one good wound he can brag about getting.

A Retrosexual knows how to use a basic set of tools. If you can't hammer a nail, or drill a straight hole, practice in secret until you can -- or be rightfully ridiculed for the wuss you be.

A Retrosexual knows that owning a gun is not a sign that your are riddled with fear, guns are TOOLS and are often essential to DEAL WITH IT. Plus it's just plain fun to shoot.

Crying. There are very few reason that a Retrosexual may cry, and none of them have to do with TV commercials, movies, or soap operas. Sports teams are sometimes a reason to cry, but the preferred method of release is swearing or throwing the remote control. Some reasons a Retrosexual can cry include (but are not limited to) death of a loved one death of a pet (fish do NOT count as pets in this case) loss of a major body part.

A Retrosexual man's favorite movie isn't "Maid in Manhattan" (unless that refers to some foxy French maid sitting in a huge tub of brandy or whiskey), or "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood." Acceptable ones may include any of the Dirty Harry or Nameless Drifter movies (Clint in his better days), Rambo I or II, the Dirty Dozen, The Godfather trilogy, Scarface, The Road Warrior, The Die Hard series, Caddyshack, Rocky I, II, or III, Full Metal Jacket, any James Bond Movie, Raging Bull, Bullitt, any Bruce Lee movie, Apocalypse Now, Goodfellas, Reservoir Dogs, Fight Club,etc .

When a Retrosexual is on a crowded bus and or a commuter train, and a pregnant woman, hell, any woman gets on, that Retrosexual stands up and offers his seat to that woman, then looks around at the other so-called men still in their seats with a disgusted "you punks" look on his face.

A Retrosexual knows how to say the Pledge properly, and with the correct emphasis and pronunciation. He also knows the words to "The Star Spangled Banner."

A Retrosexual will have hobbies and habits his wife and mother do not understand, but that are essential to his manliness, in that they offset the acceptable manliness decline he suffers when married/engaged in a serious healthy relationship -- i.e., hunting, boxing, shot putting, shooting, cigars, car maintenance.

A Retrosexual knows how to sharpen his own knives and kitchen utensils.

A Retrosexual man can drive in snow (hell, a blizzard) without sliding all over or driving under 20 mph, without anxiety, and without high-centering his ride on a plow berm.

A Retrosexual man can chop down a tree and make it land where he wants. Wherever it lands is where he damn well wanted it to land.

A Retrosexual will give up his seat on a bus to not only any women but any elderly person or person in military dress. NOTE: The person in military dress may turn down the offer but the Retrosexual man will ALWAYS make the offer to them and thank them for serving their country.

A Retrosexual man doesn't need a contract -- a handshake is good enough. He will always stand by his word even if circumstances change or the other person deceived him.

A Retrosexual man doesn't immediately look to sue someone when he does something stupid and hurts himself. We understand that sometimes in the process of doing things we get hurt and we just DEAL WITH IT.

They asked me if I wanted ear plugs.....I said "heck no....duck season is over, this is music to my ears!". I also found out that the world record holder and womens world open champ lives right here in Ellensburg. Men division 2 world champ lives here too.

One of the best riders I have seen was at that event. Her horse was half-a$$ bucking and she still managed to get all her shots off. She had a great seat. :thumbsup: I grew up roping and startin' colts, but dang......I think she had me beat. The last time I shot off a horse I did the infamous "ten till midnight", plus I had to walk back to the barn........And ya, the thought crossed my mind as my horse was running away, but then I would to have explain to my Grandad what happend to my horse. No body no evidence....:toofunny:

The handgun targets are very close. I didn't break any records as I was more concerned about range safety rules...My Vaquero shoots a little low, the Schoefield is a very accurate 45 long colt. The uberti 1866 replica I own is very accurate...I didn't break any land speed records but I only missed a few targets. Part of the problem for me is I use a cross draw holster and I have to turn my whole left side into the target before I can draw the pistol and it costs me time. Its fun to do but the best shooters do not even use period calibers, they use 357's with 38 special ammunition and I am shooting .45 long colt @ 800fps and they pack a little recoil.

I've been cowboy action shooting for a few years now. My dad and uncle are VERY active. Unfortunately I can't make it to as many shoots as I'd like, but I have a blast every time I go. Dad used to shoot duelist, but he's shooting B-western now so he want back to traditional to be more competive in his class. I shoot ladies traditional. Absolutely, love it.

I'd love to see the horseback shoots, there's just not enough riders in Michigan. Actually, I don't know any riders in Michigan. :(
