I didn't know where to put this, and I wanted to brag a little.
I shot my first "Cowboy Action Shooting" match yesterday and had a blast! I had to borrow the leather gear, but had the four guns required. I knew that I would be slow so I just concentrated on accuracy.
The accuracy paid off. I was awarded a "Clean Shoot" pin. I borrowed gear from a Multi-Time State Champ and he and many others were there to give me encouragement. I was truly impressed with the helpfulness and attitude of all the contestants.
I will be back soon to shoot another Cowboy Match. In some ways it's good training because it's not static and forces you to think while shooting, as well as counting your shots.
I had never even seen a "Cowboy Match" before, and jumped in with both feet. I'm glad I did. Now I've got to order some holsters and a shotgun ammo belt.
