Today was the first Cowboy action shoot since the Province imposed lockdowns back in April, effectively closing most gun clubs and many outdoor activities. As we are now allowed limited activities, the Decew Gun Club scheduled a Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) match today, July 25, 2021. The match was limited to 15 participants and two of us from the Dunnville club were able to attend.
Last September, I had the opportunity to shoot CAS at Decew GC for the first time so I was excited to return.
My goal today was to improve on my times from last year while concentrating on accuracy over speed. I accomplished that with all 4 stages shot “clean” except for one procedural penalty on Stage 2 when I shot a target out of sequence. The procedural penalty hurts as it comes with a 10 second penalty. But considering that I incurred no other penalties for missed targets, I felt pretty good. At the end of the day, even with the procedural penalty I had taken 53 seconds off my time from my first match last year.
As always, I want to do better, but today showed definite progress.
The Posse at Decew are a well organized and welcoming bunch. If you want to know more about Cowboy Action Shooting, check out these websites:
